Pynroth lived with nine other non-human children in Madame Delilah's Home for Orphaned Children in Hillsfar until First Lord Torin Nomerthal proclaimed again the Great Law of Humanity, expelling all non-humans. Luckily, Pynroth and the others were housed by Ebenz and Bea Farbough, two farmers without children, in a farmhouse near the city. Pynroth lived there for two years until the Rage of Demons.
At that time, Pynroth was in the rebellious teenager phase and went out of the home. However, he was attacked by some wild dogs but was protected by Beralt of the Emerald Enclave and saved by some adventurers who happened to be near the farmhouse.
