Ranger of the North
Gwendhron lives in a cabin just outside of Bree-town.
Gwendhron is not the type of man rush into conflict without thinking it through. If he thinks there is any way to resolve the issue peacefully, he will do so. Senseless violence, in his opinion, is the sign of a damaged soul and while he knows he cannot save every soul, he'd be damned if he did not at least try. He rarely gets involved with with matter in town, choosing to manage the Barrows that he has been specifically takes with and watching over the Brandyhills if he has the chance. He only ever seems to come into town to get supplies to take home, or if there is general sorrow that he hears of. As someone that cares deeply for people and their emotional well-beings, he may sometimes be seen counselling citizens of Bree, eyes softened and with a tender heart. He can also be found telling fanciful stories and singing songs for the children of Bree and those few adults who may simply be curious. He would happily put the needs of someone else over his own and would readily take a blow to protect the innocent.
Gwendhron fights mostly with a shortbow, picking off enemies from a far, before going into the fray with his simple arming sword. He knows that he does not have the strength to take down large enemies such as trolls or giants. At that point, he would use wits rather than brawn to either lure the enemy into a trap or use the environment to his advantage. In one-on-one combat, Gwendhron is very much the same way, choosing to outwit and then use his strength to his advantage, rather than use up all his energy at once. He has many tools at his disposal such as a small knife he keeps tucked away in his boot. He also uses caltrops, fire-oil for his arrows, and a bag full of sand and rocks all found on his belt.
He is very reclusive, even for a Ranger. That being said, he has no friends as of yet.
He has none, though he considers any Ranger he meets to be a brother and sister.
Gwendhron has a great fondness for all things in nature, though he has a particular love for rabbits. He loves a good pint of ale, peace and quiet, and the calm breeze hitting his face.
Gwendhron abhors needless violence, as well as those who prove to be disloyal and dishonest.
Gwendhron's main goal is to ensure the safety of those he is tasked to defend, both in body and in spirit. He also wishes to breed rabbits, but that is beside the point.
