This little vignette is made for a project on classic-castle named LCC. I don't know how I could have missed it... It's certainly worth to look at some time.
Profile of Kethean:
Name: Kethean (which means Windrider), no surname known
Age: Somewhere at the age of 17
Habits: Loves hunting and fighting with his longbow, and inventing things to make life easier.
Abilities: He knows/senses when certain things are going to happen and where.
Weaknesses: 1 to 1 combat fighting, but luckily he doesn’t have to do this often, because of his deadly accuracy with the longbow. Can be quite rash and often gets into trouble because of that.
His father was a travelling merchant trading in peat, as was normal in the village because peat was common there and the main reason the village existed in the first place. Consequently, his father travelled a lot.
Kethean has never known his mother. He knows that he was laid before his father's door a few days after he was born. His father told him that he once fell in love with the most beautiful elven maiden he'd ever seen in his whole live (the only one, to be precise). Luckily for him she fell in love with him too, but their love was not meant to be. She left him one night, quietly. For nine months there was no sign until he found this little boy by his door. That was the beginning of the Kethean's story.
The village were he lived with his father was called Elavia and was located into the woods of Lenfald somewhat close to the border of Lereos. But now, all that remains are ruins. The major of Elavia was no man of honour, he was in charge of most of the trades, but was also known to cheat. A couple of years ago he did bad business with a couple of Outlaw people as he had done before. But this time it went different: they came in the night with their torches and set fire to the peat located next to the village. The whole sky turned blood red. Only Kethean, his father, and three other villagers survived the attack. Because the town is now abandoned they renamed the ruins into Arragnos (which means something like 'day of ashes').
That very day was the first day Kethean first discovered his true origin. He had sensed the danger the day before and had urged his father to leave the village. Because Kethean almost turned mad from fear his father and his neighbours decided to pack their belongings and leave before dawn the same day.
With no home or business Kethean and his father fled trough the woods of Lenfald towards the capital. There Kethean's father made a new living, but Kethean, who had fallen in love with travelling, decided to serve his country instead. Driven by his old elven instinct he now roams the country on his way to important events to report to the High Lord Godfrey Wenseclaus II of Lenfald.
So this is why, if anything important is happening in whole Roawia, Lenfald is sure to know about it.
That was the story for now, hope you guys like it, let me hear what you think!
