Weapon of choise:
Bow:

Atharan's primairy weapon of choice is the bow and arrow.
He has been training it ever since he walked down the
path of a ranger and never stopped to improve, thanks to that he
has obtained an unusually
high level of skill with a bow. Even for his own kin's standards.
He often carries a longbow with him that has a bladed edge on the 
front so it can be used for Melee-combat as well.

Swords:
Atharan uses swords for close-combat. His first choice in this is a
simple longsword of men-make. It was forged in the hidden refuge
of the rangers known as Dolendir, also known as Esteldin. 
Atharan also uses his family heirloom. A longsword by the name of
Forodgweaw 
(North-wind). The sword is inlayed with powerfull runes allowing him to
fight and kill many sorts of wraith with it. It is also a feared weapon
amongst
the Black Numenorians of Angmar

Daggers:
Atharan uses daggers for quick and stealthy combat as
well as a last resort in battle.
He is a skillfull thrower as well as fighter with them. One of
his daggers is of elven make. It resites often on his lower back,
hidden behind his cloack.


Spare info:
As a last resort Atharan has a five throwing-knifes on a chest-belt.
Atharan is capable of fighting with spears.
Atharan can fight with one-handed axes/clubs/maces. 
Atharan can't fight in a shield-sword combo, nor can he fight with
great-axes/clubs/maces.
Atharan can not fight with halberts
Atharan can not fight with any form of hammer

Arrows:
Atharan uses, aside of his standard arrows, a various set of arrows.
Most used are his small-tip arrows, made to penetrate almost any form
of heavy armor.
Due to their small, thin tip, these arrows will not cause much damage
when pulled out but are lethal if shot right.
Sometimes he coats the arrows in poison. He does this when he absolutely
needs to be sure of the kill.




Companions:

Ayiana:

Perhaps the one he trusts most within the kinsmen he knows off.
Ayiana is Atharan's beloved wife. A young an beautiful girl with
the pride and determination of a veteran warrior. Ayiana does
not back down if Atharan is in need of her.
Such is the reason why they grew so close and married.
He loves her dearly, even though they can't always be together.


Aronath:
Aronath is Atharan's loyal steed. 
A well trained horse that does not fear much, Aronath is always at Atharan's side
when he need him.

Nír:
Nír is Atharan's main message hawk. Its the one he uses when
he is in the field and its the oldest hawk within his use. 
Nír is also a scout and ofcourse a friend to Atharan and his other fauna friends.

Background

Born in the bloodline of Numenor, in winters long past was Atharan son of Arandir, Dunédain of the North. He is the youngest son of Arandir and Ethelyn whom were both of Dunédain blood themselves.
When he was young, Atharan lost his father and two older brothers as they killed in Angmar upon their trip homewards. After this the young boy was to care for his mother whom fell ill of grief and eventually died not long after. Left alone in the care of his Kin, Atharan started to learn of archery and swordsplay. Though he showed great skill in swordfighting, it was in Archery that he exceeded any expectations. He grew and trained under an elder ranger by the name of Hirithal. To Atharan this man was like a grandfather and he thus often refered to the man as ''Gramps''. Learning for many years he finally set out at the age of 18. Now a young ranger of the Dunédain, he was left to decide his own path. From here on out he learned many things of elves and dwarves alike.
He always had a keen interest in the world around him and thus can often be found studying. This interest in the world has profited him with the gift of many speeches and well as the knowladge of various martial-styles. 

Amongst his own kin he is mostly known as ''The wolf of the north''. A stories sometimes told to young rangers in Esteldin whom are yet to complete their training.
It is the story of him slaying the Uruk General in Dol Dínen. 
It started one day as Halbarad asked him to camp out in the hills of Dol Dínen and keep an eye on the orc tribes that were slowly gathering there. But being young and too eager to learn, he was found by a scouting goblin that passed beyond his notice.
After taking a crude goblin-made mace to the head, which still can be seen by the two scars on his face, Atharan was taken captive by the enemy. For five days they kept him in a cage, barely alive. Eventually when the night guard had fallen asleep to close to the cage, Atharan saw the chance of escaping. Using the skills ''Gramps'' taught him,and the last of his strength, he managed to escape, steal a bow and some arrows, sneak his way through the encampment where he eventually stumbled upon the Uruk General. It was at this point that he had a clear shot and thus took it, killing the unsuspecting general. Using the chaos that was created upon the General's death, Atharan managed to get his hands on some orc armor and used it to sneak out of the camp. Yet he was tired, hungry and hurt. The armor was to heavy and he had to leave it behind. A knife of orkish make was all what he has left to defend himself with. Needing to survive he used it to kill a lone-wolf that wandered the woods. He then went on with skinning it to use the hide as a cloak to keep him warm.
He managed to survive for three days in the wild, disguised as a wolf-cloaked man before a company of rangers found him. 
He was brought to Esteldin where he laid down in the infirmary for many weeks. After he came out the word of his deeds in Dol Dínen were already told in Esteldin. 
The nickname known as ''Wolf of the North'' was given to him by Halbarad himself and ever since he is well known amongst his Kin everywhere by this alias.

​Atharan is also a man who enjoys the cold. He has spend ten years of his life up in Forochel before he went back to Esteldin to aid Halbarad once more.
In Forochel he made good friends amongst the Lossoth and helped them fight back the enemy. The cold has hardened him and he knows very well how to survive in the most extreme forms of blizzards and cold weather.
