Growing up poor farmers, Koll, Banki, and Magnus Jonsson were set upon by hard times and forced to sell the farm after their father died. After failing to find work, they joined Grahnhaven’s city guard. Whenever they needed to send out an escort or patrol the neighboring villages and farms they were always the first to step forward and were well thought of in the area. When the captain of the guard saw how well they performed, he recommended that they become part of the standing militia. Never leaving each other's side, they have become widely known as the Trio of Garheim.
