Subject     Tobeo's "story"

The son of an elven mother and human father Tobeo 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 Tobeo 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 Tobeo 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 Tobeo quietly drew his sword and lay in
wait. One man leapt towards the helpless bear sword in hand swiping at it's

Jumping out of the bush Tobeo's sword clashed with that of the mans in a
thunderous bang. Shocked the man jumped back. What do you think you are
doing?! Tobeo says as he kneels down to free the small cub.

Without an answer the three men charged Tobeo.

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.
