Character: A Bard of the Hall
Source: Northern Middle-earth
Disclaimer: Tolkien created this place, Kortirion created this person.
Sometimes he’s called on for special entertainments, for select audiences, and must tailor his tales to fit. Sometimes he wears a hooded cloak, he’s young enough for vanity, and even with one eye... can see looks of distaste. Then he feels as ugly as a troll. He pulls his hood forward, letting the words sing out as from a shadowed cavern.
He’s also learning that some find this alluring... in a romantically, tragical way. Maids shudder and sigh over the Blind Bard... For them, he’s learnt sad ballads of loves lost – and, how much sentimental maids love to be... comforted! ~_^
