Guruthos was born the second son of an elvish couple in the kingdom of Calen Tol. This is small island kingdom off the main land coast.
As a child Guruthos was always interested in the bow and hated the pursuit of magic. He was physically weak, even for an elf, and as a result was bullied by the stronger children. He learned only on that he could talk his way out of situations and how to hide from those who would chase him down. As he approached the age to pick a profession he followed his older brother Ithron into service of the kingdoms army. His older brother was a wizard of no small measure and was only 270 years older than Guruthos.
Since Guruthos didn’t know how to cast spells, but was a fair shot with the bow and had excellent scouting skills he joined as a scout in the same platoon as his brother. During the wars with the goblins Guruthos noted that the small size allowed the scouts to hide much easier, so he asked his brother to shrink him down in size. Since that day he has been a half size Elf. After the goblin wars his brother remained in the kings guard and Guruthos set off to earn his own way. He would earn money acquiring information, things, and the occasional removal of a problem individual. If he is convinced that the target is evil then he has no qualms killing the target.
During one of his missions for a human merchant he got word that his homeland had been invaded by a mysterious group serving some guy called the Overlord. He returned home as soon as possible and found the spell casters had been rounded up and sent to some other land. Most of the population had been branded and were under control of the invading army. For a time he was with a group of rebels, until the invading army discovered the camp. A few of the rebels survived and headed away from Calen Tol to the main land. A couple of years later they heard that the country of Realmaria had been invaded. News of a rebel group had reached him so he started that way to join up, with the hope that he would be able to find powerful enough comrades to find or avenge his brother and homeland. All he knows is he seeks a group following a brilliant Halfling leader called Poppy.
He wears a charcoal grey quilted armor with black stripping on the border. He has long silver hair he keeps tied in a pony tail. His eyes are a violet color. He normally is wearing a set of goggles on his face and a dark green cloak.
He keeps his trusty bow “zapper” around at all times and often will have his dog Ryn with him. When traveling great distances he will ride Ryn. In combat he will send Ryn out of danger.
