Character History

Elénril was born twenty years at the edges of the Green Wood, in the small village of Nendor. The inhabitants lived by the traditional customs. The village had been found as a settlement around an ancient beech, with a central stream, the Nenrant. In the beginning it was simply called "Nen pel Neldor" water around a beech, but in the course of time this name was contrasted to "Nendor". When this temporary meeting-place turned out to have many advantages, Elves decided to settle down and choose a leader. The leadership is passed on from father to son ever since. Women are supposed to run the house, to cook, to wash, to give birth. Men hunt and form a small army, just in case.

Elénril's mother, one of the race of Human, was called Culalqua (Red Swan) because of her beauty and flaming red hair. Culalqua had been living in Nendor her whole life, among the High Elves. As a child she had been found in the woods and they had accepted her as an equal. At marriageable age she was asked by Camthalion (Strong Hand), a handsome dark-haired Elf. He was one of the many fighters and, sadly, notorious for his fits of temper. They were peacefully wed, for Culalqua had been by the High Elves a long time ago. When their first son was born, and was to be called Maegedhil (Sharp Elf), the present leader, Himkanó, did not agree, for he thought the son of an Elf and a Human was not a true Elf. Nevertheless he consented to it, out of respect for his father, who had taken Culalqua in so selflessly.

Maegedhil was like his father, both outward and inward, but even more fiery. His only interests lay with hunting and fighting, he could grow angry and walk away without any reasons, and cared not about feelings, his own not more than anyone else's. The twelfth age of children of Nendor was celebrated. This involved a feast and a ceremony, in which they acquired their second name. Mostly this name told something about the nature of a person. Maegedhil was therefor called Ringsarn (Cold Stone), and he was proud of it.

Elénril (Starshine), their second child, was born in days of winter, on a cold, clear night, when the many stars laid a gloss over the path, which determined her name. Fortunately she inherited only her fathers honesty, fighting spirit, strength and hair, not his fits of temper. Her mother gave her beauty, diligence and brown eyes. She was more interested in weapons than housekeeping, and was taught the arts of combat by her father. This was not appreciated by Himkanó and he forbid them to continue their exercises. But the weapons called out to them, and they picked up their training during long wanderings on the moor. Himkanó had no authority there. Often they would travel to the Towns of Human, and learned how to trade and drink. They spent long times alone in the forest, or on the moor, just to avoid domestic chores. Camthalion an Elénril brought many tools, artefacts and food from their journeys, and Himkanó was satisfied. During the ceremony Elénril was called Ranmir (Wandering Jewel), and this was how Himkanó showed his appreciation.

Himkanó had now reconciled to the fact that Elénril would never become a proper housewife. But he could not permit his own son to take her as wife. To avoid further problems, he banished Camthalion and his family. They travelled into the woods, in search for Forest Elves. They found them in the depths of the woods, by the Nenrant. Elénril and her father had encountered several Elves from the Green Wood on their earlier journeys, and the family was taken in without complications. After some time, Culalqua again got pregnant. Alas, she was not young anymore, and mortal. The child was born dead and Culaqua died of bloodloss, after several hours. She and her daughter Lothgalen (Green Flower) were buried together on the banks of the Nenrant.

Camthalion and Elénril prospered in their new surroundings, but Maegedhil grew restless. One day he left, in the direction of the Vinegarlake to explore the area, and never returned. The Forest Elves did not regret, for they had not cared about the Vinegarlake. They preferred the quiet Green Wood. When the number of game decreased, they wandered further and settled down somewhere else. There was a formal leader, but no elite, no ranks or classes. Camthalion was appointed as hunter, and he pled for his daughter to join him in the same profession, but she refused. The tranquillity, being able to do whatever she pleased and the kindness of the Elves had done her good, but she still preferred to wander around woods and moors. And that is what she did, always keeping the Green Wood as her home base.
