The Darkening Wild
Thane, guard captain and advisor to King Bard of Dale
When Bard shot Smaug, Elistan was one of the very first to swear fealty to him, there in the refugee tents on the shores of the Long Lake. Since he has proven himself invaluable both as a warrior and a confidant. He is Captain of Dale, and has leadership over any military forces or militias in Bard’s absence.
Elistan is tall, wiry and strong, and is a superb fighter, favoring the sword and spear over the bow. He is the favorite to win the Grand Melee at the Gathering of Five Armies.
