Mendel grew up in a small elven village in High Forest. From small age he was trained in the ways of the ranger and as many other wood elves he is strong and agile. He protects the woodlands, enjoys living in nature, in small villages and despises large stone structures especially within the forests. Humble and patient, listens to other peoples views and advice but he is not known to take part in long conversations.
As many other Sylvan elves he ignores the Retreat and stayed behind to protect the elven villages and the forests. He is likely to socialise with other races, especially humans and dwarfs. He hates Orcs as he considers them responsible for the collapse of Eaerlann. It is difficult for him to trust a half-orc.
Although a ranger, what defines him is not so much the bond with nature but rather the attraction to the unknown and the untamed. That is the reason behind him leaving the village he grew up in High Forest and travel. He stayed some time in every place he visited and got by, mainly by escorting merchants and help in tracking missing persons.
One day, he arrived at the Sword Coast, as an escort to a merchant caravan. It was in the town of Nashkel where he met Laisren, the man who would have a huge impact on his life. Laisren taught him what it is to fight for a reason, his duties as a Tel'Quessir and reminded him how it feels to have a home, Doron Amar in that case. Unfortunately circumstances made it such (Subject: En Dharasha Everae RP thread), that they both along with their friends, were again on the road looking for a place in the North where they can have their new home.
In combat, he relies on evasive hit-and-run tactics but since his arrival at the Sword Coast he was trained by his mentor Laisren in more organized forms of fighting. Those who have fought with him know that Mendel is eager to rush in a battle, not always considering the consequences.
Becase of his spontaneous character and his difficulty in socializing, Mendel has been called many names by others. Some call him weirdo and arrogant, while some go even further and call him sociopath. These people don’t really know him and so it is easy for him to just ignore them.
