Dendrakor is able-bodied, especially for an elf, but is also far more martially-minded. Serious and pragmatic, he has deep wells of pent up rage that he can tap to gain strength in battle.
Never drawn to study, Dendrakor was different from his peers growing up. Though reasonably bright, he was drawn to matters of battle. The struggle between the agents of good and evil arrested his interest. He became an initiate in the Queen’s Guard, and was trained to be a fighting man. In his spare time he would listen to elders talk about the religious beliefs of men and was fascinated- though his own kin found religion to be boorish, he found the ideas, (or the ideas he could understand) to be admirable.
His fellows, becoming aware of his different beliefs, encouraged him to transfer out of the Queen’s Guard and into the small detachment reserved for the Forest Temple, one of the very few elvish places of worship. While technically under the Queen’s Court, most elves see it as a symbol of human ideas polluting elvish culture, and sneer at any who attend its services or speak there. This move was seen as a win-win, as Dendrakor could be closer to his interests, and his coworkers in the Queen’s Guard would not have to work with a deviant whose presence was a disgrace.
