Today we learn who that fella with the pointy ears in our group is, Gordon!
Who are you?
My name is Gordon Lightfoot. I am what your people call an elf.
Where are you from?
I originally resided in the village Orillia, but I have not seen its great hall, flowing crystal clear river, or green hills for many years.
Why are you traveling with your current companions?
I have no current companions save the beasts of the forests. But I remain hopeful that one day I will meet those destined to help me recover that which was stolen from my people.
Where would you rather be?
I would rather be home resting in the sweet cradle of Mother Earth, and enjoying the companionship of my people.
Tell me three things that you do not have but wish you did.
I require very little, but first and foremost I wish I had the Golden Dagger of Edmund. The relic that was stolen from my people so long ago. Other than that, I wish I had somewhere I could call home once again, as well as the acceptance of my people.
What do you do best in life?
My one true prowess is my connection with my bow. We are one, and I see through its sharp barbs.
We “elves” do not share our shortcomings with outsiders, even if we had them. We are a proud people, and strive to be all that we can be. To do less would make us equal with the lesser races.
If someone was asked about you, what would be the first thing they would tell?
Hahaha, that is quite the question. Most likely they would tell others of the elf that they met, and how stuck up he was. But let me tell you, that couldn’t be farther from the truth. All elves simply say it like it is preferring not to beat around the bush, or make up fairy tales.
What do you want most from life?
Ah, a simple question! To recover the Golden Dagger of Edmund and return it to its rightful place.
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
That is such a short time away. I will likely still be seeking the Golden Dagger. But if the fates smile upon me, I will have restored it, and rejoined my people.
