Profession: Ranger of Culway Fief.
Alkurak has fair dark brown hair that he only has to shake to make it look like he combed it. It falls a bit past his brow, and he sweeps it slightly to the left to keep it out of his eyes. His eyes are a bone chilling light gray, almost an off white color. His eyes shine out from underneath the shadow cast over his face from his brown and green ranger cloak's cowl. He always wears his cloak with a few minor exceptions. He also wears a sleeveless brown leather tunic underneath his cloak. Underneath that he wears a dark gray sleeved shirt.Personality:
For pants he wears a dark gray, durable yet lightweight leather material. They reach down to his ankles, bu are surprisingly cool in the heat. On his arms he wears an archers glove on one band that is the color of black. This matches his black armgaurd which he wears on his left arm as he is a righty with the bow. Against his skin he wears a silver Oak leaf on a chain to represent he is a ranger. He also wears a mixed brown that raise to his knee.
As for features, his head is rounded up until his jawbone and cheekbone. His eyes were like a hawks, they where narrow, and they where always scanning the area. He has a small goatee and he has well trimmed sideburns. His ears look pointed, causing many people to question if he is a human or an elf. He has pink lips that are normal sized and his teeth are perfectly white because e is probably the one ranger who doesn't like coffee.
His body is well toned and muscular. From 4 years I using the long bow, his forearms, biceps, and triceps are very well defined. Also he has toned abs and an okay chest. His legs are also strong from years of plowing his fathers farm. His hands are calloused as are his feet, making them very tough so he can endure the environment slightly more than other people.
Alkurak is very short and slim besides his bulging muscles. He is only 5' 1" tall and he only weighs 120 lbs due to a high motabalism.
On his persona he carries the standard ranger weapons with him. He self fletches his arrows and his bow is made of oak.
Alkurak is very childish around people so that they lower their guard. He likes to talk and chatter, just so people will give him information he needs to know. However, when doing serious work, he is very serious. He also tends to use his eyes to intimidate people as they usually chill people to the bone. He likes to toy with people and confuse their minds, usually making them boggled by the time he asks them an important question. Alkurak lies a lot, he considers himself the master of deceit as he is so good at it and so convincing. Alkurak is also a flirt. On the rare occasion he is off duty, he will walk up to the prettiest girl he sees and flirt with her. Usually all the girls fall in love with him upon seeing him, but sometimes this is not true. He is also very vain. He likes to look at himself in the mirror or rivers and admire himself.History:
He fears very little, since he hates having weaknesses, but he does fear a few things. He absolutely hates spiders and he has a terrible fear of fire. He also has a few weaknesses besides his fears. He is very loyal to his friends, so if something where to happen to them, he would rush in head strong and try to save them. Also he is very competitive, he has to 1-up everyone and that is bad seeing as if someone already did the job well, he would do the job again, but better.
As a young boy, Alkurak worked on his father's farm. Since they didn't own a mule or horse, Alkurak was the one who plowed the fields. Throughout the years as he grew older, he did more tedious tasks. One day, his task was to fetch them some food. Alkurak went into the wild and went hunting for any animal he could find, equipped with only a spear and a knife for skinning. The first thing he saw was his prize. It was a young deer, more than enough food to feed him and his father for a few days. Alkurak approached the doe and as he went to spear it, a stag came crashing through the trees. Alkurak made a quick decision and switched his spear to face the stag. The stag ran head first into the spear and died quickly. As the deer was getting away, Alkurak tried to kill it with a rock, but he missed. He sighed but then he saw the deer fall. HE went to inspect it and found an arrow sticking through it's heart. Alkurak looked around to find whoever killed the deer, but no one was in sight. He looked to the trees, and he briefly saw movement in one and he saw the flash of a silver leaf. As he dragged them home, Alkurak's father was astonished. They cut up the animals after boning and skinning them, and they ate some of the deer, they preserved the rest for later.Additional Information:
Alkurak turned 11 when his father discovered how to make a really good mead and wine. They sold them at a local meadery and they worked up so much money that they built their own winery and meadery and sold their drinks from there. They got a flow of money and where able to purchase a larger house which was right in the city outskirts of Castle Araluen. King Duncan liked them very much and he bought mead from them for his parties. However, one day, someone poisoned the vats of mead in the cellar. The King was coming to taste the new delicacy they had made. Alkurak's father took the first sip and died. From then on King Duncan closed down the winery. HE took Alkurak into the ward and Alkurak grew up in the ward until he was 14.
When Alkurak turned 14, he received a note from someone named Crowley. He met this Crowley in the woods, and surprisingly King Duncan was their. Crowley took Alkurak in at the early age, and he trained Alkurak to be a ranger. Alkurak excelled at unseen movement, tracking and map making. He was average at everything else, but average for a ranger is perfect for a normal person.
After the four years of training, he received his Silver Oakleaf. He was appointed Ranger of Culway fief at the ceremony and he was happy to have his own fief.
His cabin in the woods was very nice looking. He would always clear out his small yards of falling debris from the trees and he cut the grass often as he could. He had a flower box on the windows and he had a small farmers porch that he liked to relax on. The inside was also nice looking as he enjoyed decorating it.
Alkurak has stopped many crimes in Culway and he has jailed many criminals.
Alkurak longs for an apprentice even though he still has not received one. He also has a white stallion that is called Aclupind as his ranger horse. He spoils Aclupind with daily apples.
