Subject     Kraven's "story"

The son of an elven mother and human father Kraven was shunned by both
humans and elves.  A Halfling they called him among other things.  His
childhood was a tough and sheltered one, in that he and his parents
lived miles from any town.  Needless to say other then his parents
Kraven had no friends other then the woodland creatures that he came to
know and respect. His father a once mighty knight was reduced to nothing
more then a hunter in order to provide for his family.  His mother a
beautiful elven archer at one point in time was now a simple house wife.
 Both forsaken from their homes for the love they shared.

As the years passed and Kraven grew, he learned from both his mother and
father the ways of the sword and bow.  Killing only what he needed to
survive he honed his skills in hunting, track, and forging.  He was one
with nature.

Moving through the wild one day he came across a few human men setting
new and checking old traps.  As he followed these men they came across a
small bear cub caught in snare.  Looking on to see what the men might do
Kraven quietly drew his sword and lay in wait.  One man leapt towards
the helpless bear sword in hand swiping at it's head.  Jumping out of
the bush Kraven's sword clashed with that of the mans in a thunderous
bang.  Without an answer the 3 men charged Kraven.  Though reluctant he
used the skills taught to him by his mother and father he was able to
free the cub and leave with his life which is more then the 3 men left
with...  Returning home he told his parents everything, about the bear,
and the men.  From that moment on he trained day in and day out to
better his skills in order to protect the woods in which he lived.
