~Philosophy of Life~
She is willing to put her life on the line for the safety of those she cares for greatly.
She values the lives of her closest friends more than her own.
Eruniel carries an everlasting melancholy about her. She seldom ever smiles and when
she ever does, it is rather unconvincing and listless. Her gaze seems perpetually
distant and solemn.
The elf has little tolerance for nonsense and bears an attitude of getting done what
must be done. She is a cold woman, but can open up over time to be a little bit
warmer with the people she cares for. She is also very selective with the people she
allows into her life.
Erun has difficulty trusting others. She can also be hot-tempered and has a tendency
to be too quick to violence.
Eruniel is always equipped with an elven blade and a dagger for practical combat. If
she knows she is heading into battle she will bring along a bow, as it is her preferred
weapon of choice.
Erun keeps a book full of intricate and unique armor and weapon designs that contain
various styles of ranged and melee weapons. This had became a hobby of hers
after her uncle had designed a bow for her and gifted it to her on her fifth birthday.
It was her first bow and had became the start of a newfound talent. Her uncle tried
his best to teach Erun everything he knew, despite not being the best himself. Like her
mother, she was exceptionally talented with the bow.
She has been able to keep the bow in great condition after so many years, even
after the incident which had caused her to bear her scar. Erun even managed to
keep the bow after the transitions from Vailor to Axios and from Axios to Atlas. The
bow has a great emotional significance to her and even though she is rarely ever
seen with it, she does keep it safely hidden and protected.
Unfortunately, since the incident, she could never be the type of archer that she had
always wished to be. The burn scar leaves her nearly blind in one eye, her dominant
left eye. Not only that, she is cross-dominant, meaning that she is dominant in her
right hand. This causes a huge disadvantage in archery where one side of the body is
used to aim and shoot.
Not only does she like to conjure up various weapon designs, but she also likes to
study battle-tactics and the differences in the ways of how the other races in the
realm fight and use weapons that are more typical to their specific race. The
history, cultures, and languages of the other races fascinates her as well.
The bow that was gifted to her by her uncle is very unique. It is adorned with
feathers, straw, string, carvings, and much more. Funnily enough, it was made using
scraps of various things found on his farm.
The feathers that are delicately tied onto the handle has some emotional significance.
It was Eruniel’s first kill using the bow. It was tied onto the bow after she had
successfully hunted and killed a fair sized bird to later eat that night. A couple
feathers were saved and used to decorate the bow.
The usability and durability of the bow is a bit questionable, but it has much
significance behind it. It is now the only piece of her Uncle that Erun has to remember
Due to living on a farm as a child, she now knows a lot to successfully growing crops
and raising livestock. She is by no means as talented as the Halflings when it comes
to farming, but she wouldn’t mind learning a couple of techniques from them one day.
She also knows a bit when it comes to smithing, fletching, and making weapons and
armor in general. She is nowhere near as skilled as the dwarves, but she wishes to
learn more of the art of smelting and shaping blades and the like.
She is pretty agile due to her thin and slim body. She has a wiry strength.
Short, wavy locks of dark red hair that is sometimes tied into a very small ponytail.
Her skin is lighter than the usual wood elf due to having a family history of human and a bit of high elven blood. For the most part, though, she is primarily a wood elf. She also has little specks of freckles that cover her body.
Seaweed green eyes.

Type of Relationship: Mother
Details: Eruniel has no memory of her mother because her parents had mysteriously
disappeared after leaving Erun in the care of her maternal uncle. Eruniel was told by her uncle that she had inherited Amonia’s exceptional archery skills. Eruniel sometimes wishes that Amonia had never left, but then again, she never knew what her mother was like in the first place.
Type of Relationship: Father
Details: Eruniel has no memory of her father because her parents had mysteriously
disappeared after leaving Erun in the care of her maternal uncle. Eruniel was told by her uncle that she had inherited much of Erusirdil’s physical traits. Sadly, she doesn’t feel as much of a loss for her father as for her mother due to having another father figure growing up. She still does wonder how things would be different if they never have left her.
Type of Relationship: Maternal Uncle/Guardian
Details: After her parents’ disappearance, Glanar raised Eruniel on his farm where
she was later taught basic combat and how to raise a farm. Glanar acted as the father figure Eruniel didn’t have. He later died in a fire incident, which was also when Erun was given her burn scars.
She has never had a mother figure and thus, generally acts more boyish because she
has been exposed to more manlier mannerisms her whole childhood. Erun will never be able to experience what it’s like to have a mother figure in her life, and will always feel that void and emptiness of not having one. Because she has never had a mother, she has trouble projecting affection as strongly and as often as most would. Secretly, she worries whether or not she will be a good mother in the future.
Even though she doesn’t want to admit it, she feels a bit of resentment towards her parents for leaving her in the first place with no explanation. She, in a way, blames them for the terrible things that occurred during her childhood.
Eruniel also had a fear of fire for a long time after the incident. She now has a deep respect for fire and the damage it could cause if not handled properly. Erun has learned to accept what had happened in the past and move on instead of letting her past memories haunt her for the rest of her life. The scar on her face is a symbol of how she has grown to be the person she is today.
After the incident, she was left to wander the streets alone. Erun later befriended a human girl, Abigail Windsor, and was able to take refuge in her adoptive father’s hold located on Dwarven lands. There, she met a mixed dark elven / snow elven servant boy and befriended him as well. A while passes and the residents were forced to abandon the hold, thus leaving Erun homeless once more. Not once did she think about returning back to her own people’s land, as she still felt she was not ready to go back.
She spent the rest of her childhood growing up in various Human cities, with Abigail and the once servant boy, Lylion Khainlen, by her side. Over time, their friendship had changed. Lylion’s mental health had started becoming questionable, but Eryniel had not thought twice of cutting the relationship off as he and Abi were her only friends growing up. And, after having lost someone important to her, she couldn’t bear to lose more.
As a consequence, she and Abi were emotionally and physically abused and later forced to be his slaves, where more intense physical abuse had ensued. He had even managed to beat Abi enough to where she suffered retrograde amnesia. Fortunately, Abi and Eryn worked together to escape and permanently cut Lylion from their lives forever.
Unfortunately, her relationship with Lylion had drastically affected Erun and led her to have serious trust issues. It may also be the cause of her short-temperedness and how she is much more quick to violence than most.
The fire incident from long ago had not only caused her to lose her only remaining relative, but also led her to bear her burn scars for the rest of her life. To this day, she still sometimes experiences flashbacks. During her sleep, the nightmares will frighten her back to consciousness, which makes sleep difficult for her. It is not rare to see Eryniel with dark circles under her eyes from lack of sleep, though nowadays it does not occur as often. She hates reliving that night, as it brings her much pain to do so.
