The Shadow of Death
Tim "Ace" Freedomsoul
Tim grew up with his younger sister Sorana Freedomsoul in an orphanage located in a city so boring that Tim wasn’t sure it even had a name. HE had a name, but it was boring. I mean, seriously, who names their soon to be great adventurer TIM of all things? So, wracked by boredom and cursed with a dull name, Tim set out into the great unknown, dragging Sorana along with him. They encountered many hardships along the way and were at the end of their rope. Literally, for how are two ten year olds expected to know how to climb a mountain! They were almost out of hope, dangling from a rope, when they were stumbled across by a middle aged man by the name of Douven Staul. He, with vast more amounts of experience, took the trouble making Tim under his wing and adopted Sorana as his own daughter. Of course, when Tim met this impressive man he couldn’t introduce himself with a dull name, so when Douven asked for his name he shouted (still on the rope) “FreedomSoul the Great!” and so… a legend was born. Not really. Not long after learning the bare minimum of survival skills, Tim set out into the wild again. This time he left his sister behind in Winterhaven. Now he has spent many a year travelling the great wilds of the world and completing great deeds of greatness. But for some reason no one seems to believe that this man, with the name Tim, is the amazing ranger “Ace FreedomSoul the Great”. Ever plagued by his curse, he returns to Winterhaven with hopes that he can rescue his mentor of long ago.
