This elf is tall and of normal weight (130 lbs.) for his race.
He is a middle-aged man with thin, kinky sandy hair, and slanted violet eyes with thin, arching eyebrows. He has a gray complexion, wrinkled skin, and a large head with a broad face that has a low forehead and a square jaw. His nose is hawk-like and his mouth is large with thick lips. His teeth are yellowed and his breath is fresh. His ears are well formed, and hesports a goatee. His arms are muscular, his legs are long, and his fingers are normal. He is wearing soiled clothing and a saturnine expression, and walks with brisk movements. There is a faint, undefined perfume emanating from the man.
He is pessimistic, morose and energetic, and speaks in a guttural, a whining voice, and is primarily interested in Nature.
He seems of normal sanity.
One other item of interest concerning this man; he is always out of breath.
This character was raised in an Elven City with a population of close to 3000 Elves. Only a handful of these cities exist. It was the center of elven government. He was raised in an area considered Temperate Forests – primarily sparse evergreen copses.
Both of his Parents are alive and healthy. He has no living Grandparents, He is the oldest child of his family, and has two younger siblings. He has at least 22 other living relatives. He lost a significant friend by the name of Tamur Jamalgataimei who died 2 years ago as the result of a conflict called Thregnor’s Battle..
He grew up in a family that was run by the Elders of the family. The oldest members controlled the family, and made all critical decisions with little, if no input from the rest of the family.
His family is Wealthy. His family owns its home , since the family’s income significantly exceeds their basic needs. As he was growing up, his family was closely tied to an Arcane group by the name of The Seventh Servants of The Thirteenth Staff of The Three Books that was generally well regarded by the community.
During the times of his life when it became necessary to defend themselves, his family proved to be very ineffectual in their defense of the family holdings. Essentially, his family had no cognizant ability to defend themselves – and were often berated as cowards, fools, or worse – but that was about all that could be said about them.
Privately, his family held to the letter of contracts and agreements, and could always be depended on to ‘do the right thing’ – earning them a reputation for honesty and reliability. His family’s public ethics could be considered beneath contempt. Regardless of his family’s actual ethics, public opinion is so ingrained concerning his family that it’s essentially unchangeable. In this case however, public opinion is wrong. His family’s reputation in the community however, is generally well respected, although it has been known to produce a Black Sheep or two over the years. In general, his family is considered upstanding, but at least four members of the family are known to be disreputable.
His family’s Religious preferences could be considered uninterested since his family had no real commitment family religious direction as he was growing up.
Politically, his family would be considered Mixed. One part of his family supports the current rulers, and other factions are actively working to remove those rulers.
His family tree is rather barren of any special branches or notoriety, as his family has no remarkable relatives or ancestors of note to date.
His childhood was otherwise unremarkable. The only thing that might be considered unusual was the fact that he had been born when a comet appeared in the night skies that has always had an unusual effect on the way he is treated by others. Although the event was traumatic, he would not have been the man he is now without it.
During the years of his youth, he had broken the law as a youngster. He was able to avoid the repercussions of the crime, and subsequently learned how to dodge the consequences and survive.
Unfortunately, he has become a Refugee. He was forced to become a displaced person as the result of a flood that decimated his community 3 years ago.
His early education was couched in Multicultural skills. His parents traveled around enough to teach him that the world was a big place – filled with many different kinds of people, places, and things, that helped nourish his overwhelming thirst for knowledge. Later, he began to develop his skills in the Arts, concentrating primarily on singing. Currently, he has been making a living as an Infantry Soldier. The job’s not that fulfilling, but it helps pay the bills.
As far as his relationships with his Instructors went, he had a basic education. A particularly good instructor taught him the basic skills, but, unfortunately, he has since died as the result of an accident.
His family has earned the enmity of a Mystical group called The Bronze Servants.
