Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Another of the sylvan heroes in Harvest Moon. After leaving the woods he had guarded for so long, Downin discovers he is already known in the outside world as the Scarred Elf, legendary for keeping all would be trespassers out of the elven forest. In fact, the bards tell the tale often. Because of this, he's considered a challenge, a chance for men to prove their own prowess, should they defeat him. With the large scar on his brow, he is easily marked in the cities, putting his companions in danger. It's the pixie who finds the solution; cut his hair, hide the scar. The only problem is, with Donwin's volatile temper, making changes he may or may not like can prove almost as dangerous as being stalked by the townspeople. 'Donwin jumped up and walked over to the mirror. He studied the reflection, his expression revealing little of what he was thinking. His hair fell just above his shoulders in the back, and appeared to float around his head, so light without the weight of its previous length holding it down. How odd he looked. How odd he felt. It seemed almost like a stranger was staring back at him. He couldn’t remember the last time he had looked so undamaged. The scar had been there for so long, always the first thing he saw when he looked in a mirror. Now it was gone, effectively lost beneath the hair spilling over his brow. He could see what others saw when they looked beyond the scar, something it seemed most everyone could do but him. He realized, for the very first time, that he was handsome. Rittzi stood by the bed, holding her breath, hoping the elf wouldn’t get upset about the drastic change. Donwin could see Rittzi in the mirror, and saw the tension in her stance. “It’s fine, Rittzi,” he assured her. “A bit of a shock. I’ll get used to it.” '
