Outward Appearance

 

Raven haired and very pale, slight of build and delicate even for an elf. She is the physically smallest of her siblings and recently celebrated her 224th birthday, making her still a very young Sindar elleth, practically a girl in the eyes of the Sages of Imladris despite her experiences. She tends to feel and behave far older than her years, however.

She bears a vivid blue scar along the left side of her throat, which seems as if it should have killed her, yet did not....or did it?

Background

Xanderian of Belfalas, Herald before the Wrath of the West and Yeoman unto the Company of the King, Heartbreaker's Guide, the Silent Wardress of Orthanc, Nightwind and Longtracker, the Monk of Osgiliath, Sword Esquire unto the Lady Arahen of the House of Orodreth.... Called by some Kinslayer's Spawn and Abomination. 

As a girl, Xanderian preferred to spend her time outdoors, either hunting or considering the curious nature of the world around her....but for many years she has found herself content on campaign, or at moments of weariness (physical or emotional) by the hearth of the Prancing Pony. While growing up her time was spent exclusively around other Sindar elves of Rivendell, so in her youth she found other company at best to be annoying and at worse loathsome. As she seldom got along with other elves either, it meant she spent most of her early years alone. Since then she has grown, becoming more and more openly emotional with and about those she cares about. Some would even say overly so. She and her siblings come from a house of no special note save for disgrace and infamy, regaining what little dignity and standing they have through service to the House of Elrond and later the free peoples in the war against shadow.

She is inordinately fond of horses, keeping a veritable stable of personal mounts.

She carries a special enmity for the White Hand of Saruman, due not only to their habitual despoiling of nature, but also due to events which occurred during and soon after a period of captivity within Isengard, which she has spoken of only to her closest companions. She is also an implacable foe to the slavers of Angmar and the Dourhand of Kheledul. 

Xanderian has shared much of her life with her closest friends and lovers, especially the deep bond (and rivalry) she has with her older sister Xandilif. She has commented on occasion, usually late at night by a fire, that she was forced from the peace of her near monastic existence by military service, and the tales of adventure spun by her bluff older sister.

Of the race of Men, she appears to identify most strongly with the Gray Company and the Rangers of the Dunedain, often wearing keepsakes of her time in their fellowship and speaking fondly of them.

Her cherished bow, an artifact of the First Age, is named Heartbreaker, a name first given it in jest within a humorous song composed by her brother Xanir.

She has pledged her service and allegiance to the Lady Arahen of the House of Orodreth but the status of that oath is unknown. Often a fixture in Bree, she is usually found in the company of Cyndwin of Rohan, an adventuress, Hawke, a local naer-do-well or many others
