Egfor led a rather uneventful life; He is the youngest, having four sisters ahead of him. They all got along rather well. The girls had helped raise Egfor and in turn, he helped look after their children, being described as a kind and caring uncle to his nieces and nephews.
His family had always been farmers, mostly growing wheat, corn and a few other small crops and raising cattle and horses.
It came to no surprise to his family when he announced that he had fallen in love with his childhood friend nicknamed Wolf, the two lads were always inseparable. Egfor carried on farming into adulthood, and Wolf became a farrier.
War came to the Mark and a muster was called for men to ride for the Hornburg. Both Wolf and Egfor went. Wolf perished in the battle, but Egfor lived on. Devastated by the loss, Egfor fled Rohan, ignoring the muster to ride South to aid Gondor. He had enough of war and loss.
He travelled North and ended up in a quaint place called Bree-Town...
Alcohol, hunting, practicing with his weapons, riding his horse, men.
Orcs and anyone allied with them. Ignorance, lack of alcohol, bigotry and bullies, defilers of the land, nightmares.
Finding himself and building a new identity
