Name: Ehrandil Hurinson (Ehrandil, son of Hurin)
Alias: Wayfaring Ranger
Age: 21
Sexuality: Heterosexual
Race: Human
Kingdom: Hyrule, formerly Holodrum

   
Personality:
Ehrandil appears in grim and cold to anyone he meets. He is not easy to befriended with anyone whom he newly meets and rather keeps his distant from them unless they call him. Because he is from Waystrider clan and his upbringing within the clan(a human clan which rarely contacts with outsiders except those who came from Holodrum), he shows his distrust to any outsiders and strangers. It is hard to earn Ehrandil's trust after what happened in his past life as a mercenary, he is a loner who secludes himself from the crowd. Furthermore, Ehrandil does not take threats lightly and he will face them in return. Thus, anyone who intends to insult or slander him, Ehrandil will be happy to oblige them.

Despite his cold demeanor, Ehrandil is not entirely an evil individual. He knows which is right and which is wrong, Ehrandil himself have moral principles despite he is a mercenary. Once a contract is made, Ehrandil will never broke the contract or violate it until the contract reaches it's due. Sometimes if individuals (especially those who are poor and desperate) beg him for help, Ehrandil will never turn them away and help them without charging them any fees. He is also fond of animals particularly domestic and wild ones (probably because his Blessing, the Forest Faith). If anyone gained his trust and friendship, Ehrandil will turn to another person; he becomes gentle and soft-spoken to his friends and never let them down. Even though skilled ranger and a warrior, Ehrandil remains humble about his abilities. However if the individual betrays his trust, Ehrandil becomes hostile and confronting towards to the individual and they will never gain his trust again. Like the rest of his fellow Waystrider clanmates, Ehrandil possesses the spirit of nobility even though he is a nomad.

Even though he is far away from home, Ehrandil longs to see his fellow clanmates and his father. He is fiercely takes pride in his heritage as a Waystrider. Some times, he wishes to see the current royalty of Hyrule Princess Zelda to listen to his request; permitting his clan to come back to Hyrule and pledge their services to her like his ancestors did back in the past. He is also cares deeply for the well-being of his clan, anyone who insults or mocks his clan will face Ehrandil's anger. He knows about Hylian languages and texts, Ehrandil also knows histories throughout the Lands of Hyrule as well as the other kingdoms. He also respects the Hylians and holds them in high regard since they permitted his ancestors to settle in the Lands of Hyrule back in ancient times. Ehrandil also regretted for rebelled and left his teacher Mara when he was a teenager, now he knows that the world is more realistic and crueler than his imagination. Ehrandil have a habit of writing events or anything he encounter into his diary, he believes that these records will be seen by his descendants or perhaps, the future generation of Hyrule.

In combat, Ehrandil does not hesitate and is rather waiting for an opportunity to strike. A skilled archer of the Waystrider clan, Ehrandil often picked off his targets from distance with his bow and arrows, he was more skilled in archery than swordsmanship. Instead of facing off his opponents head on, Ehrandil often uses "hit-and-run" tactics such as shooting his arrows at them while running towards or avoiding them. Once if he got the upperhand in the fighting, Ehrandil becomes more brutal and ferocious with his attacks. Furthermore, a forest is Ehrandil's favorite battleground.


Likes:
- Domestic and wild animals
- Honorable individuals and deeds
- Fair amount of payment from his clients after the contract is done
- Archery
- Hylians
- His clan

Dislikes:
- Betraying his trust
- Mercenaries who are being unscrupulous and not honor their contracts
- Falsehood
- Demons and any individuals who serve the forces of evil

Motivations:
- To search the Hero: After the hooded figure was gone, Ehrandil took it as a sacred task and determined to find the hero to pledge his assistance to him, like the Waystriders of the Old.

- To reclaim the honor of the Waystriders: Because of they caused major damages in a bloodied clan war, the Waystriders were banished from the Kingdom of Hyrule many centuries ago. As the only Waystrider who arrived the lands of Hyrule, Ehrandil determined to request for an audience with Princess Zelda and beg her to let his clan come back to Hyrule after their exile, he is willing to do any tasks which given by the Hylian princess as long as his clan are permitted to come back and regain the clan's honor.

- To see forgiveness from his teacher: After he knew the life as a mercenary is a hard path and the world is cruel than he imagined, Ehrandil was filled with regret after he exchanged words of war with his teacher Mara and left her without a notice. Right now he wishes to seek her out and ask for her forgiveness.

- To search the other Waystriders who left the Woods of Winter: Ehrandil knows that there were some Waystriders who left the woods in Holodrum and settled themselves somewhere around the kingdoms. If the clan's return to Hyrule is permitted, then he will search for them and bring them all together as one true Waystrider clan before going back to Hyrule.

Fears:
- Failed to reclaim the honor of his clan: If he fails to persuade Princess Zelda or she rejects his plea, then Ehrandil believes not just that he had failed his clan, the honor of the Waystrider clan will not be reclaimed and they will continue their lives in exile within the Woods of Winter for eternity.

- Failed to complete his sacred task for searching the hero: If he fails his sacred task, then Ehrandil's pride as a Waystrider clan member will be gone and he had no doubts that the forces of evil will victorious if they arrived onto the lands.

History:

"Swift as an arrow, tempered as a blade." ~ Motto of the Waystriders

The Waystriders
Long ago, a group of human foreigners known as the Larians arrived at the Land of Hyrule by sea and these foreigners were survivors of the fall of their kingdom Laria which was located far east away from Hyrule. Eventually, these silvered eyes humans settled in the forests which was outskirts of Hyrule Castle Town. To survive in a foreign kingdom, the Larians became foragers and hunters while some (but only few) became traders and merchants. Those who served in the Larian army back then were became rangers of the forests, safeguarding their homes and protecting the other villages from the forces of evil. Since then, the Larians became a clan thus they adopted the name "Waystrider" as their clan's name and a griffon as their clan's symbol. When Hyrule went to war against the forces of demons, the warriors of Waystrider clan volunteered to join the war and with their skills of archery and swordsmanship, the Waystriders managed to defeat the forces of demons but with costs of many lives. Because of their selfless valor, the Waystriders became friends and valuable ally of Hyrule especially the Hylians. Two centuries later, the Waystriders warred upon with Vankirk, other human clan over a blood feud and caused major damages within the lands of Hyrule. After the incident, the royal family of Hyrule had no choice but banished the Waystriders from the kingdom (This incident resulted in great punishment such as death but the royalty of Hyrule did not forget the Waystriders' service in the past and they were saddened as they decided to banish the clan). After the banishment, the Waystriders became nomads and eventually settled in Woods of Winter within the Lands of Holodrum where they were shunned by the society of Holodrum. The Waystriders kept to themselves and isolated from the society, they lived their lives normally within the Woods of Winter by hunting and foraging thus rarely had contact with outsiders. After a few centuries, the Waystriders were remembered as nothing but myths in the histories of Hyrule but some Hyruleans did not forgotten their heroic deeds. When Holodrum was besieged by an army of goblins, the new generation of Waystrider warriors and rangers came to the kingdom's aid and chased the goblins out from the Lands of Holodrum, the clan were gained the trust of the Holodrum people and royal family. Although they continued their life in seclusion at the Woods of Winter, some of the Waystrider clan members left their village to settle at other places and some pledged their service within the army of Holodrum.

The Son of the Waystriders
Centuries later, a son was born to a Hurin Argonsson, a newly appointed young chieftain of the clan and Mirra, a woman from Holodrum. The son was latter named as Ehrandil by the chieftain and he was raised by his parents in normal life but Mirra passed away due to a serious sickness. At very young age, Ehrandil was trained in combat by his father. Although he was trained in swordsmanship, Ehrandil was gifted in the skills of an archer. The paths of the Waystrider warriors were divided into two; the path of the Swordsman and the path of the Ranger, Ehrandil chosen the path of the Ranger as his choice. In his training as a Ranger, 13 years old Ehrandil learned foraging, tracking and camouflaging from the veteran rangers. Later then, a lone wanderer approached the secluded village of the Waystriders and she revealed herself as Mara, a Hylian wandering mercenary and an old friend of Hurin. The talents of Ehrandil immediately drew Mara's attention and she decided to take him under her wing as an apprentice. At first Hurin was against it but after been persuaded by his fellow clansmen and Mara, the chieftain agreed and saw sense that if Ehrandil was trained by his old friend, Hurin had no doubt that his son will be a better chieftain of the clan in the future. After that, Ehrandil left his home and began his training under Mara thus he was longed to see the outside world.

Life As A Mercenary
Not just the Hylian style archery, Ehrandil learned the language from his teacher. Mara also named Ehrandil as Eradan; one of the two founders of Waystrider clan and a hero who led his clansmen to fight alongside with the Hylians during the war against the demons. As he reached to the age of 17, Ehrandil learned many combat talents from his teacher but he began to talked back against his teacher due to their disagreements with each other. Yearned for more freedom and independence, Ehrandil left his teacher after their heated arguments and decided to travel on his own path. The youth later joined a band of mercenaries and stayed with them for a few years, he became the most trusted lieutenant to the mercenary captain. At the age of 19, Ehrandil and his fellow mercenaries were hired by a noble family and fought in a civil war at Holodrum Plains. Ehrandil became renowned after he defeated a small army of rival noble soldiers in the woods of the Plains with "hit-and-run" tactics. As the civil war reached its end, Ehrandil realized that his captain and fellow mercenaries already began to plundered the villages which supported the rival noble behind his back. After the civil war was over, Ehrandil managed to prevent his fellow mercenaries from plundering a village. Even though the village was saved from being plundered, the mercenary captain banished Ehrandil out from his mercenary band. Before he left, Ehrandil warned the mercenary captain and his former fellow mercenaries that if any of them decided to oppose him in the future, he will kill them without mercy and hesitation. For few years, Ehrandil became a lone mercenary and adventurer thus regretted for left his teacher and failed his clan.

The Search For The Hero
At the age of 21, Ehrandil setted at Lands of Hyrule and made his haven in Hyrule Castle Town. As he rested in an inn, a hooded figure approached him and told him about the tales of the old Waystrider clan, the bloodied war between the Waystriders and the Vankirks thus the banishment of Waystrider clan by the royalty of Hyrule back in the past. Then, the individual told him that the Lands of Hyrule was in danger even though the inhabitants did not realize about it. The individual also told that it was time for Ehrandil to reclaim the honor of his clan, and told him to search for the hero who will save Hyrule and assist him in any troubles. Before Ehrandil could say anything, the hooded figure shined in a bright glow and disappeared right in front of the ranger's eyes. As Ehrandil opened his eyes, he realized that he was sleeping in his seat but the dream was no mere illusions. Believed that the hooded figure might be Sages or any deities of Hyrule, Ehrandil decided that the task which was given to him was a sacred task.

RP Sample:
The hooded ranger laid his feet on the table and leaned his back onto his chair, he was on second floor of the inn and he gazed down the ground floor which was filled with people who were busy with their drinks and conversations at their tables. The second floor was quiet and Ehrandil was alone, he did not complain about it and furthermore he hoped this quietness continued. Because of his hood, it revealed only Ehrandil's lower face as he adjusted the tip of his hood a little. Then suddenly, someone walked on the wooden stairs behind Ehrandil's back and he had groaned slightly, so much for enjoying the peace of quietness. The person walked past him and stopped, Ehrandil looked up a slightly with his lower face visible for the person to see. Much to his surprise, the person was hooded like him but the hood was more thicker than his and he could barely see the figure's face, Ehrandil still maintained his lazed sitting position. "May I sit in front of you, stranger?" the hooded figure asked and Ehrandil motioned with his head as a sign to take the seat in front of him.

The hooded figure sat down in front of the ranger and Ehrandil cannot see who was it but he doubt that the figure was anyone who was going to attempt to kill him. "Are you the famous Wayfaring Ranger I've heard about?" the hooded figure told him, Ehrandil adjusted himself and placed his arms on his table without looking at the hooded figure. "If you're trying to hire me, sadly I'm not available in present. Perhaps some other time or hire someone else if you're in a hurry." Ehrandil said to the hooded figure as he got up from his seat, he reached his hand to his bow and quiver of arrows underneath his chair. "I'm not looking for mercenaries but instead... I'm looking for a Waystrider." the hooded figure told him, Ehrandil immediately halt his movement. "I know a Waystrider when I see one... especially thy silvered eyes." the hooded figure said as if it was amused or relieved. Ehrandil turned his head slowly and faced the hooded figure, the candlelight nearby finally revealed his face and thus, his silvered eyes which was distinguished features of a Waystrider clan member.

"I thought my clan was remembered as nothing but myths and legends around Hyrule, who are you and what do you want?" Ehrandil reached his hand to his sword which was sheathed beside his waist. The sword was so old that it did not sure how many lives it had taken back in the past. "Stay your blade, Ehrandil... son of Hurin, the tenth chieftain of the Waystriders. I am not your enemy." the hooded figure said to the young Waystrider. Strangely, the voice of the hooded figure relaxed Ehrandil and he slowly moved his hand away from his sword. "Who am I is not important but I have a task for you, a task which determines the future of all lands around here... as well as your clan." the hooded figure said and Ehrandil sat down. Who was this individual and how did it knew his name and his father's name? Ehrandil did not introduce himself and no one knew his real name around here. Thus, the way that the individual spoke about the task as if it was sincere about it and Ehrandil pulled down his hood, revealed his full face and long black hair. "... I'm listening," Ehrandil spoke and the hooded figure smiled.
