Heinrich has lived his entire life in Port Quinn, in the Docks district. He was a regular at The Cold Harp, a dive bar that serves bacon and beer. He has a mother, whose name we have not yet learned, and a brother named Erdos. He had grown up loving to read, and had been with his mother to many of the free, outdoor plays in the summer on the edge of the Quarter of Lords.
Heinrich began his journey with The Finger Gang as a member of a shadowy network called The Portent. He followed the path of the Hexblade Warlock, and worked hard to disguise his abilities from the outside world. As time went on and his powers grew, Heinrich began to question his patron's motivations.
Despite moments of seemingly vicious savagery, Heinrich seemed to be largely lawful, and continues to serve as the primary conscience of The Gang. He was able to talk his way through many situations, even managing to convince an elite mercenary group to allow The Finger Gang disguised as members of a religious order to take a trip aboard a vessel they were guarding.
Heinrich found a brief romance with Bristle, an orange-skinned tiefling, and the only non-orc member of The Weaver's Circle, a powerful band of sorcerers that serve as the elite forces of the Sunrest Islands. While aboard a hot air balloon, Heinrich was instructed by his patron to kill Bristle, and Heinrich complied.
The look of shock as Bristle fell to the ground (safely) before he Dimension Doored away impacted Heinrich greatly. He fled, wounded, and found refuge in a nearby church. There, he had an encounter with Father Avery, an old Sunrest Islander who counseled Heinrich in the ways of the gods. He gave Heinrich a candle, telling him "Even in the Darkness, we can find light."
Heinrich awoke to a confused priestess who had no knowledge of Father Avery's existence. Heinrich began to search for a different path, rejecting his patron, Azrah, the Goddess of Rot. Azrah did not take kindly to this, severing Heinrich from his powers for months. All the while, Heinrich felt defeated. Without his abilities, he felt unable to help his friends. He kept the candle, which never seemed to burn out, nearby, and continued to look for a sign.
Eventually, Heinrich found his way to the service of the power planatar angel, Euriel The Worldwatcher. With his newfound celestial abilities, Heinrich emerged as a powerful healer, and found he no longer required sleep. The many languages of the land unfurled in front of his eyes, one of which had gone entirely black, and for the first time in a long time, Heinrich felt hope.
Guntir and Heinrich have a complex relationship. Guntir's chaotic neutral ways collide powerfully with Heinrich's lawful good approach to life. Heinrich considers Guntir to be needlessly greedy and selfish, whereas Guntir finds Heinrich to be a buzzkill, and not respectful of his elders. In spite of this, the two defend each-other fiercely in battle.
Heinrich has the closest relationship to Shae out of the group. The standoffish monk and Heinrich have referred to their tabaxi and dwarf allies as "the kids" and frequently remind each-other to keep an eye on Guntir in particular. Heinrich is respectful of Shae's culture, and has sought to learn more from her.
Morwen and Heinrich also have a complex relationship. His is often exasperated by her antics, but will begrudgingly go along with them, as there is often at least a point to her experiments. When Morwen fell off the side of a mountain and Heinrich jumped down to rescue her, just before he cast dimension door, Morwen dramatically claimed to love Heinrich as she believed she was going to die.
