Positive Traits[edit]

Lyle is also fiercely loyal to his friends as seen with him and Skruff he defends the creature with his life often commanding him to run away when the fight seems like it would become unfavorable for the creature truely he has a love for nature.

History[edit]

Before the Empire[edit]

Before the empire Lyle was a simple cabbage farmer on a near remote farm that lies outside the borders of the empire covered in dense forests living on his own in seclusion wanting to stay away from others as a child he had rescued a baby Rhinoceros from the clutches of some poachers who were looking to make a quick few coins off selling the young creature something in Lyle's mind snapped that day and ever since he's hated sharing the company of people for too long.

The Present[edit]

Lyle has managed to find his stumbling's take him into the lands of the Empire though he doesn't know such a thing exists he is eager to meet new people and has been striking up a reputation as a guide of some sorts managing to trek people across portions of land with relative ease and safety

Skills and Strategies[edit]

Lyle often implements his archery skills in combat commanding Skruff to take a front so that he can shoot from a far however he's at his best when he can ride his beloved companion into the fray using his two short swords in tandem with near reckless charge from his friend the pair would become a windmill of pain as he so puts it Lyle also tends to have an affinity for simply disappearing especially in the presence of woodlands

Journal[edit]

Season 3, week 1: Near illegible text is scrawled at the top of the leatherbound book as lyle scribbled down "Here I am thinking what have I done. These past few months have gotten me thinking what am I doing with my life... it's all so jumbled.. I miss home... but there's so much out there I saw that giant tree... saw so many grandiose sights. It's intoxicating the sheer immensity of the events that've been surrounding me... yeesh and i'd only just begun... still i'm very much glad that I've survived my encounters... and I'm sure Skruff is glad to be out of that damn situation... still I wonder what would've happened had nobody intervened... we'd both be gone. I've gotten a new respect for the Orc Nazdrak... he's fercious yes... but he harbors a kind of loyalty I admire... and Fern she's kindly and she's an explorer like me... and then there's Tom... he reminds me of.. those games i used to play when I was a child... I think that's enough writing for now..

Season 3, Week 2: So Traveling with Fern and company has really opened my eyes... may be just a little but... i'm not gonna tell i've given 'em the cold shoulder for awhile and i'll keep doing so... Fern still seems to enjoy Skruff though so that's good... i wonder what sparked her... relationship with Nazdrak heh... he seems to be the lucky part... I almost envy It I guess so.. that's why i'm kind of glad i've decided to leave... leave and never come back that's what I'll do... I did it back then I'll do it again .. besides I think it's time... maybe i can call them something other than friend.. y'know so that they don't... get any idea's... the road's gonna be pretty long.
