Gryan Stoutmantle is a Paladin and Quest giver of the Alliance located at Sentinel Hill, Westfall. An older version of him can be found in the Grizzly Hills and a younger version of him can be found in the Caverns of Time: Culling of Stratholme.
Gryan Stoutmantle fought in the Third War. He was present when Prince Arthas Menethil purged the city of Stratholme, killing almost all of its citizens to prevent them from becoming part of the Scourge. What role Gryan played in those events is unknown, but he clearly managed to get out of there alive.
Due to the corruption of the Stormwind House of Nobles, Westfall did not get the military support it would have needed to defeat the Defias Brotherhood. Feeling that Stormwind had abandoned them, Gryan founded, and became the leader of, the People's Militia.
In his efforts to defend the people of Westfall from the Defias, he recruited young Heroes of the Alliance to aid him, and with their help many of the Defias were killed.
Gryan and the People's Militia captured a thief trying to steal Saldeans wagon. They forced the thief, who became known as the Defias Traitor, to show them the location of the Defias secret Hideout. Thanks to this Gryan found out that the leaders of the Defias Brotherhood were hiding in the Deadmines, hidden in the town of Moonbrook. Once again he called upon the Heroes of the Alliance, and sent them on a mission to kill the Defias King-Pin, Edwin VanCleef, himself.
The Heroes succeded and Westfall was safe once again.
