In the interest of keeping to these forums I am posting my new profile on this topic.
FŽanor A.K.A. Blondie
All of his life he was raised to take over the family farm but he always felt like there was something better for him. One year his father decided it was time for him to journey to the capitol so that he could see how the buying of the vital supplies was handled. When in the capitol he, like any eleven year old, wanted to explore. After watching his father for a while he slipped off and wandered around the city for a few hours. While wandering around town he ran across the Rotharin military academy and new that was what he was meant to do.
A few months after their return from the capitol FŽanor worked up the courage to ask his father if he could join the academy but, being the only son, his father refused to even consider the idea of sending him off because he was the only chance for the farm to survive. Thus, he settled in to a life of tedium never expecting what was coming for him.
Several years down the road, shortly after his 16th birthday, he was at the local market trading goods when he saw someone being robbed. Seeing this he knew that he must try to do something. When he was almost to the victim another of the robbers that was in the shadows jumped him and beat him for trying to help. He woke up shortly after the incident and realized that he needed to become a soldier so he could make Rotharin a safer place. After that day in the market he went to his father and told him that he was old enough to do what he wants and that he was leaving for the military academy no matter what his father says. He then went to his room and gathered up his meager positions and the money he had been saving from side jobs. As he went to the door his father said ďif you step out of that door you will never be welcome back here again.Ē While he was turning away to leave his mother ran to him weeping and said ďno matter what your father says I will always be proud of you for standing up for what you believe in.Ē
Weeks had gone by after his first attempt at getting into the academy but, being an ignorant and illiterate farm boy, they wouldnít let him in. Knowing that he couldnít face his father after leaving like he did he spent the time wandering and doing odd jobs until he came upon a weathered old soldier. At first he didnít know how to approach the old man but eventually he just walked up to him and pleaded that the soldier teach him letters and some basic fighting so that he could get into the academy. Seeing the passion in this strange young man he decided that he would help FŽanor get into the academy as long as FŽanor would give it his all.
On the eve of his 19th birthday FŽanor was told by the old man, who up to that point had been calling FŽanor rookie because he had dropped his name, that it was time to pick a name before he applied for the academy again. So FŽanor decided to name himself after his new life philosophy, attacking life with a spirit of fire (FŽanor means spirit of fire). Shortly thereafter he was accepted into the academy.
Now a part of the academy the poor farmer realized that he had no idea how to blend in with all of these strange individuals. First he had to deal with a strange person named AlíSander then there was the entirely exotic Lucius and an odd person named Garack to name only a few. Being uncomfortable with his new name he never readily introduced himself thus everyone started calling him ďBlondieĒ do to the blonde hair that ran in his family.
He currently is in the academy but canít wait to graduate and become a soldier that patrols the roads and prevent incidents like the one that occurred when he was 16.
