Aldri Longlegs works at Theman's Caravan Repairs at White Horse Ford. Aldri can usually be found in the shop or in his small cabin just across the road.
Nearing 40 years old. Aldri gets around on crutches and his good left leg. His shoulder length greying blonde hair thinning. His hands and arms have several deep battle scars. When Aldri stands up straight he is six and a half feet tall. But usually he is sitting or stooped over his crutches.
Aldri is a little bitter about the loss of his leg 20 years ago to a slaver *. His face has perpetual frown lines and he is a mean drunk. And despite his advancing age and infirm condition, he is quite a brawler. Because of this all of the locals keep watch of his drinking. He is grateful for the kindess shown to him by Theman in training him to work leather, and giving him a chance to support himself again. He is extremely grateful for the chance at having dignity again.
Born in White Horse Ford Aldri left for a more exciting life in Felleran-Krae. He went to work for the Felleran-krae militia and spend two happy years patrolling the city and local environs.
While on patrol his militia band spotted some slavers raiding an outlying farm east of White Horse Ford village. Giving chase they finally caught the slavers and captured or killed them. In the battle, Aldri had his leg nearly completely severed by an axe. By the time he was taken to a healer, his leg had started to putrify.
Using his pension to get a house back in White Horse Ford, Aldri spent a couple of years miserable and alone. It was Theman who came to him and offered him a job doing leatherwork.
* Aldri still has the axe that took his leg. And on bad nights he pulls it down to look at it glowing in the darkness. There are times he wants to sell it, but he just can't part with it. (Adamantine battleaxe. +3 Glows a pale blue white when in darkness. Curse of the axe: wielder will be slain after 100 fights with the axe by the new wielder.)
