Dendron Merryfoot has always been enamored with the forest and all the things that grow beneath its leafy canopy. In spite of his good looks and natural charm, he wants nothing more than to live in his moss-covered cottage, deep in the woods, and to stay out of trouble and harms way. He loves herbology and delights in growing and preparing herbs and spices, for medicinal and cooking purposes. The result of this hermit-like nature is that he has very little experience with civilized society an the world outside the wood, and thus has not developed any serious prejudices against any particular races or cultures. He dislikes goblins, for on the rare occasion that they turn up in his end of the woods they are often crude and nasty individuals who scar the forest that Dendron calls home, but a few threats with his trusty short bow and the goblins usually leave without much fuss.
Dendron’s parents died early in his life due to disease, and part of Dendron’s enthusiasm for the the healing power of herbs is tied to his parents’ deaths. But instead of being completely distraught by his parents’ deaths, Dendron instead quickly came to understand the cycle of life and death as a part of the natural world, and does not mourn them but remembers them fondly. The cottage in the woods belonged to his parents, and was his place of birth.
