As a young girl, Larona was not accepted very well by th others in the village she grew up in. Sure her parents loved her, but her plain (By elven standards) looks and standoffishness distanced herself from the other children. Thus it was no surprise that she spent most her childhood exploring the woods on the outskirts of the village. She quickly learned to befriend and respect nature’s creatures. It also seamed she had a knack for relating to animals, they often showed no wariness. Her father, one of the village’s protectors, began to instruct her in the way of the sword & she found she had some talent in it, but her true calling was in archery. She seamed to have an eagles eye when it came to hitting a target.
As was the case with most elves, she possessed some ability in the magical arts, but to her mother’s chagrin, didn’t seam too interested in further developing her magical talents nor putting in the time to study.
When she came of age & it was time to choose a profession, she seamed naturally inclined to seek out the regions ranger, Sturum Wayfarer. Part of the Ranger’s duties in the area was to keep the Goblin populations in the area under control, discouraging them from raiding the nearby villages. Several times did Sturum & Larona have to defend her village from a goblin raid. Having taken to her new profession like a fish to water, Larona was soon ready to venture out on her own to see what the world had to offer.
Striking out on her own, she made her way to a tavern where she had learned that adventuring parties often looked to hire persons of ability. She soon signed on with her current friends. After a little time adventuring, she finally saw the wisdom in her mother’s advice and began to also further explore the mystical arts in a manner that would help her in her ranger duties.
