As a child, he was taught the art of stealth. He assassinated the leader of the Gronuk tribe in his teenage years. Little else is known of his childhood.
When his tribe was attacked, he was one of the many who deserted it. He left to become a thief. He stole from the bandit Mikael, but got caught. He was then freed be the Dovahkiin, and joined his tribe.
He played a little role once he joined the tribe, but did have the option to be sent out in Nettlebane and Gildergreen. He will steal either the Nettlebane dagger or the Gildergreen Sapling. Either way you have to go get the other one.
