Warriors and Bards


A feared warrior and one of the guardians of the northern borders. Though of human origin, the Forest seemed to favour him and King Tiëhir decided to allow Tristufin to stay. His courage and open mind has gained him the favour of elves and great knowledge has been bestowed upon him. Our people believe he was given an elf-heart by the Forest and how much of a human being remained inside, is probably known to none but Tristufin himself.
I sense a strange aura around Tristufin's presence and even the Ancient-one does not answer many of my questions concerning him. Still what I have learned from the trees makes me think that this warrior means much more to the Forest than it may seem...
