|A man in his late thirties-early forties, with long graying, brown hair and beard and robes designed to help him blend in with the forest he protects. He is usually seen carrying a long, gnarled wooden staff, that he is able to use quite effectively as a weapon.
Personality: He is blunt, stubborn, loyal and very stuck in his ways. He is fully committed to serving and protecting the woods and the inhabitants around them and as such is very in tune with nature. Has certain magical gifts, though they are largely untrained - they do, however, grant him the ability to speak to animals. He is a recluse, preferring a life by himself. He is also skilled at tracking, at traps, at herblore and beastlore. He despises the growing changes and the machines around him and will stop at nothing to save the forests he loves.
Background: He was raised in the city but his parents were forced into a debtor's prison where they died. Authorities attempted to take him into custody, but he was able to flee the city for the woods, stumbling upon one of the other Guardians of the Wood who trained him for the remainder of his adolescance and early adulthood, pitting him in a series of adventures, protecting the wood. Upon learning that that city he despised was expanding, building factories and rail lines he decided that the time had come to begin pushing for an strong offense and did so, though with only limited support from the other (more cautious) Guardians in the process.
A path taken is paths forsaken.
