Bio:

Born the first son of a peasant couple, Kelwyn’s early years were filled with toil and hardship. To escape the drudgery of his impoverished upbringing, the child oftentimes would retreat to neighboring forests. While this initially disheartened his parents, as he grew of age Kelwyn’s retreats proved to be a boon. As he learned to hunt and forage, his family’s meager rations were greatly augmented.

Unfortunately, the good times were not to last. Late one night Kelwyn returned to a ruined version of his childhood home; while he was out in the forest, Orcs had descended upon his village in a raid. The brutal aftermath was underscored by his family’s needless slaughter. In his grief the hunter resolved “no man should have to go through this.” Determined to help defend against such savages in the future, Kelwyn quickly sought out the local military and enlisted.

While his eagerness was never doubted, Kelwyn’s strength left much to be desired. That the new recruit’s finesse with a sword improved there could be no doubt, and his prowess with a bow grew in leaps and bounds, but pitting him against an adept swordsman in single combat was a recipe for disaster. As such, Kelwyn oftentimes found himself delivering messages.

It took a while, but the general passivity of his militia and the impressions he was getting from those he delivered messages to ultimately led Kelwyn to his conclusion: protecting the people of the town from the wild was not the top of the militia’s agenda. And so, with disappointment in his heart, Kelwyn decided that he had to disentangle himself from this martial machine. He resigned the next day.

The ex-soldier then turned to life as an outcast. Relying on the skills he developed as a youngster, Kelwyn began living off the land. His purpose was clear: protect those in need from the brutal nature beyond the safety of their village. Martial training allowed the protector to be rather effective at this; Kelwyn’s deeds soon gained him the respect and thanks of his local village.

One man cannot live in isolation forever, however. With his implements wearing down Kelwyn has been forced to seek some sort of revenue. Not to hoard, of course, for wealth is the road to corruption, but guaranteed food, new arrows, and even a warm shelter every now and then wouldn’t go amiss. These considerations have ultimately led the strider to the presence of a noble, where he has offered his wilderness expertise in exchange for some much needed gold.
