Ser Renald was born in Wayrest, the son of a knight and his wife in the realm. His life was peaceful, and being the third son meant that he had more freedom than his older brothers. He would go and watch the Knights of the Rose train. When he turned sixteen, he enlisted in the city guard. However, there was little activity besides an occasional brawl in the city, so his life remained relatively the same. Soon he was told by his illegitimate uncle Arniel that there was a rescue mission that he would be a part of.
However, Arniel wanted the throne his older, legitimate brother held. He told the other mercenaries going with him to kill the lord and lady as well as his older brothers. The small group set out and were able to successfully rescue the merchant. However, they returned home to a bloodbath. Renald was soon recruited into the Knights of the Rose for his efforts in rescuing the merchant, as they soon began to investigate the deaths of his family. When it was discovered that Arniel had killed his family, he had Arniel as well as the mercenaries under his command executed for treason. However, even with them dead, Renald's pain was still strong.
Renald left home with his horse, his father's sword, and his armor from his time as a member of the Knights. He arrived in Solitude after about a month and a half, where he collapsed from sheer exhaustion. He woke up in the temple of Akatosh, being healed by a young priest named Ysmir. Ysmir convinced Renald to join the priesthood, and so he did. The two would get married, and set out to study at the College of Winterhold. Since then, they have returned home to Solitude. But with the threat of vampires becoming greater, they joined the Dawnguard.
