Flint Broadshot was a human hunter. One day he entered the Blue Recluse in Stormwind, seeking to buy ale for him and his friend. As payment he brought forth the body of a dead feline, telling the story of how he had managed to shoot it midair. A dwarf in the corner of the inn then rose, claiming that Flint was no honorable hunter, and that he hadn't shot it midair, but rather shot it while it had been in a snare. The dwarf then showed his face, he was none other than the world's greatest hunter Hemet Nesingwary, and he began telling a story of how he became such an honorable hunter.
