Champions of Tymeria
Druid - Primal Predator
What is going on in the world? I have spent the last 30 years focused on protecting my own part of the world, the elven forest glades and villages in my territory.
Of course, things were not always peaceful, the occasional creature on a rampage or raid by one of the numerous tribes of troublemakers that abound. The occasional highwayman from the human towns would think our people ripe for the picking and had to be shown the error of his ways.
Occasionally, this meant partnering with other protectors, whether druids or rangers, wizards or warriors depending on the threat. However, I have spent this time with my people, secluded in the world of elves and forests.
Regrettably, this time of relative peace has passed and I find myself wandering in the larger world, having to learn about other people, some good…some not. The large cities of humankind are a new experience. The sheer number of people packed into a small area – how do they cope? I find myself longing to return to the forests and feel the power of the natural running through the earth. These cities disrupt this flow, this power that binds all.
How did I find myself in this situation? In my time in the elven homeland, I heard stories of the troubles in the outside lands. However, we were able to contain the incidents locally…until recently. In the last months, there have been more incursions into our lands of ever increase darkness and danger. With more and more loss to my people, I could no longer justify a life of guardianship. I must enter the larger world and work with others to hunt down and cleanse those who threaten my people and my world.
Luckily, I have recently met a group of adventurers who, so far, have proven to be helpful. I am starting to learn more about the outside world and working with the non-elven. I hope that I do not make mistakes that reflect poorly on my abilities, my connection with the forces of nature, or my people. It will take time for me to feel comfort in this new situation…to be able to take joy in my companions, joke with them, and become a true part of their company. However, they are doing what they can to ease my entry into their group. It is I who has to adjust, to open up. I’m just not yet sure how to do that with those that I do not share a bond with.
