Durthu

Durthu is the eldest Treeman Ancient of Athel Loren.[1b]

History

He recalls a time when the Elves did not dare walk within his forest.[1b]

After the War of the Beard and Elves began to live in Athel Loren, a band of Dwarf explorers found their way to his glade, felling many trees and even taking the axe to him thinking he was nothing more than a especially large oak. Durthu still retains scars from that incident and it drove a burning hatred of any outsiders.[1b]

Over the millenia, this hatred has faded but he spends more time awake than the other elder treemen, waiting for a foe to show itself. [1b]

When the Lichemaster Heinrich Kemmler inflitrated Athel Loren in 2497 IC, seeking to raise the dead from a ancient barrow complex, the renegade Branchwraith Drycha was forced to sing him from slumber to combat the Necromancer at the Battle of the Cairns.[1a]
