- History -

The day Sotaril Eltaron was born, his tribe held a small celebration to mark the joyous ocassion. A few hours later, though, the tribe of high-elves broke camp and continued on in the forest, continuing their nomadic ways. Sotaril would spend the first 40 years of his life traveling in such a way, before the group finally settled in a clearing next to a spring in the forest.
Ever paranoid, the tribe had been in search of an area the druids declared safe enough to live in for an entire elven generation. After the War in which the Elves' numbers had been hurt greatly and the aftermath, a group of survivors decided they'd had enough and had left into the forest to isolate themselves from everything, especially the humans which they blamed for events in the War.
Eventually, the survivors had children, and to the next generation they taught their skewed beliefs, further germinating the seed of near anti-humanism planted by the humans coming out of the War better than the Elves. By Sotaril's generation, tales had been woven by the bards of the evils that the humans had wrought upon the Elves after the war. Ironically, most of the tales took place after the founders of the tribe had left, though that was never addressed by the members of the tribe.
Growing up in such an environment, it wasn't much of a surprise when in his adolescence, Sotaril began training to become a warrior to defeat the humans if there was ever a human/elven war. When he began to show promise as an archer, the top in his group actually, those that had been teaching him decided he would be better used for other means and was sent to learn the ways of a Ranger. At first Sotaril, around 80 now, did not see much use in the ways of a Ranger, but as he learned more, he found himself liking the idea of being able to strike unseen at enemies.
He didn't realize it at the time, but one of the things he enjoyed most about being a ranger was being in the forest and away from the others. Sotaril didn't mind being alone at all, quite the opposite in fact. Sotaril would spend days at a time out on his own in the forest without missing the company of the others. Oh sure, there were a few elven women that he had taken a liking to, but most wouldn't have anything to do with him because of how gruff he looked. Years passed and Sotaril found himself leaving the encampment for months on end without problem.
Around when Sotaril turned 118, the elders of the tribe gave him the option to either stay as an archery instructor to others, or to leave into the forest on his own. So after a few goodbyes and gathering his things, he left quickly into the forest, only looking back once. As he moved further and further away from where he'd grown up, he found himself gaining new insight about everything he'd been taught about humans. He discovered that for the most part, a single human wasn't altogether bad. In fact, he had even journeyed with a few and had gotten to know them quite well. Instead, Sotaril found himself changing his philosophy toward humanity as a group. After all, a human could be nice and treat an elf as an equal, but if that same huamn was in a group of other humans, they could suddenly act degrading towards the same elf. Also, to Sotaril it seemed as if humanity thought themselves betters than the elves, simply because they hadn't suffered as great of losses during the War. Depite his changing feelings about humans, though, Sotaril still hated how content they were with keeping the same relationship between man and elfkind.
For the most part, though, Sotaril spent his time as a hunter, guide, and even ocassionally as a bounty hunter if things were slow. Whatever he was doing, though, he enjoyed it. Well, except for the time he was involved in a hunt and stumbled upon some dire slugs, but he only spoke of that when he'd had a few tankards of ale, though. He was at a tavern enjoying a tankard of the town's so-called finest ale when he heard tha King Balthimor Alderaan the III was going to be making an appearance in Galadrimir, a city not too far away. Upon hearing that the human monarch, the one very much in charge of those he'd been taught to hate and still disliked after exposure to them, he left as soon as he regained consciousness and sobriety, the next day, unsure of just what he would do.
- Motivations -
Vengeance, to find out more about the War, to give Elves their rightful glory or to see the Elves strong enough to not have the humans lord over them.
