Kinship
Outward Appearance

A wild, ragged young hillman from Enedwaith dressed in wool and leather and plaid. With reddish brown hair that is long and tangled, dirty skin, and dark, wary eyes, he looks maybe to be just in his early twenties--already a man in the reckoning of his people, but possessing the height and gangly build of a youth, along with the typical voracious appetite. He's probably handsome under all that dirt and war-paint but his rough manners and 'uncivilised' behaviour may earn him the distrust and dislike of common folk. He speaks the Dunlending language and passable Common with a heavy brogue.

Background

As a hillman he is skilled in both hunting (mostly trapping and fishing) and farming, as well as the care of animals (both wild and domestic). He knows the crafts and skills of his people: wood-carving, leather-working, beadwork, herbology, tracking, and living off the land. He is at home in the forest and wilderness, for as a child he studied beneath his mother, Enit, and lived on the eaves of the Mournshaws caring for the stone circles and performing ancient rites. His clan is the Derudh, the people chosen and trained to serve and commune with the spirits, and they are now fewer and fewer in number.

Iolyn is deeply superstitious and worships Rhi Helvarch (The Hunstman), the Uch-gwirod (Ox-Spirit) and other Dunlending deities. He hates the forgoil (the Strawheads, or Rohirrim) out of ancestral obligation but hates Angmarim and Orc-kind more. Generally he doesn't trust anyone, having lived a secluded life far from other clans, but he is driven by youthful curiosity.

What has brought him North? As the youngest of his clan, he was sent to the land of the duvodiad to seek answers in the wake of their leader's troubling vision...
