Prose Synopsis of the Central Character:
Rindar is a Cro-Magnon hunter, five feet ten inches tall and weighs approximately 160 lbs. He is wiry, with quick reflexes and long running stamina. He has exceptionally well attuned senses even for someone in this environment. His vision is keen, sense of smell exceptional and bodily strength at the peak of his prime. Being banished has taken its toll and for one who is well socialized to his tribal ways the punishment is particularly acute. Despite this he manages well in a physical sense despite his spiritual suffering.
