Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: The encounter powers encroach on the responsibility of classes. A Hylian with Forest Flurry or Forest Strike is surely a ranger. These are just elf rangers, aren't they?

"I was with my ambush group, waiting for a group of Dark Hylians. Our scout came back into the trees. The message was spread that they were coming. We all nocked our arrows. When I gave the command, we all fired a volley, then we quickly let loose another volley. Their archers never got to fire a single arrow at us."

Physical Qualities[edit]

Forest Hylians look just like Hylians. They normally wear camoflauge paint on them when they're going into a forest battle.

Playing a Forest Hylian[edit]

Forest Hylians are quite good natured, and quite humorous to be around. But, like the Hylians, they are still honor-bound.

Forest Hylian Characteristics: Good natured, humorous, honor-bound.

Male Names: Same as male Hylians and Elves

Female Names: Same as female Hylians and Elves

Forest Hylian Adventurers[edit]

Three sample Forest Hylian adventurers are described below.

Westraif is a male Forest Hylian Ranger. He was a commander in the Elite Forest Rangers. One day, while ambushing a group of Dark Hylians, a surprise group came in while they were engaged in hand-to-hand combat, ending up in the destruction of most of them, though they destroyed quite a bit of the surprise group in the process. Westraif was taken prisoner. Suddenly he heard a commotion in the back. He was quickly tied to a tree, and he saw 6 adventurers fighting valiantly. That was when adventure called.

Felencia is a female Forest Hylian Rogue. She was born in an adventuring group. They had a wizard with them, who said that she would meet with a terrible challenge. During a battle, a Hylian was found bound and gagged. She released him and pulled him to safety. As she helped the other adventurers, there were a bunch of words being yelled that sounded like they had no meaning. She saw a demon approach her, then as she struck it, it merged with her. The Hylian vanished before her eyes closed. When she woke up, she heard the wizard say that her challenge was that she must be able to control the demon that was inside her. "It can either benefit us, or destroy us."
