My LOTR RPG character Veanoonion the ranger This is his background story: Veanoonion suffers from amnesia and so knows little of his past, all he remembers is his name and that one day he was kidnapped by orcs and held in captivity in the orc stronghold of Gundabad, being tortured every day he learnt to endure the pain and hate life, and orcs even more, this is how he gained his amnesia. But all was not lost for Veanoonion, for one day when the orcs were transporting him to mount Gram he managed to steal a whip and escape to the west, living in the wild as an outcast he soon developed the skills he needed to survive, and he had one ultimate goal, to rediscover his past. As Veanoonion travelled west he seemed to feel more at home, one day he met a ranger called Strider and asked for directions to Lindon, an elven city in the area, following Strider he learned more about the wild. On arriving in the Gray Havens, Lindon, he was welcomed yet he felt distrusted and different. Realising that being held captive so long had cursed his mind he enjoyed little of city life and the pleasantness of peace and life and decided not to go across the sea, instead he wandered the wilderness in around Lindon and the northwest Shire with a new dream, becoming a Ranger.
