Other: She has a two handed sword and a leather outfit which she keeps in Darnassus along with some other simplistic clothing for when she is not out traveling. Further more she has her own saber and a glaive which she rarely uses in combat.

Alignment: Chaotic Neutral

Personality: Nellina as a night elf, one that has lived for five thousand years has seen many things in her time as most others have of her race. This has left her with a distaste for magic which was given onto her by her people and culture. She firmly remains true to the ways of her race. In large groups, she tends to remain silent, merely listening and observing. It is worth mentioning that she does not prefer large crowds, but rather the solace of the elven forests. None the less it won't make her shy away from people, she is far from shy and is always outgoing in her opinions no matter how deeply they will strike the other person.

However, she is a tinkerer, adapting to any situation as she deems fit. It is often she thinks of her people, the way they are going and what is happening with the world it self. Her biggest and most notable fear is seeing her own people go extinct, she is truly afraid of such a thought. It is often she thinks of it, self made images of destroyed Ashenvale, Darkshore, Winterspring and Darnassus along with the others.

She often finds herself thinking that perhaps her people need to adapt, make use of the allies within the Alliance and perhaps adopt some of their technology. But these are nothing but thoughts unshared due to fear of how others of her kin may react. It is worthy of note that there is a lot she simply refuses to share in a conversation, rather she changes topics or answers with silence. It is hard to get her to open up and often she may be seen as one that merely observes.

But the last couple of years, the decade it self, have impacted her personality to a small extent as the night elves have been rediscovered and cannot hide within their forests anymore. In truth she wishes it was still so, that they could live in seclusion of their forests, in peace. Those remain merely empty wishes who will not become true anytime soon.


History:

Nellina Dawnstriker was born in Ashenvale five thousand years ago. Her mother was a sentinel and her father a druid, they lived a traditional way of life in peace and seclusion. Nellina would have merely heard of the sundering and the exile of the Highborne from her mother while her father was in the Emerald Dream. He would awaken every thousand years to come visit them or in times of great danger such as the third war. Unfortunately for Nellina, she had lost both her parents within the third war it self which amplified her hate for the horde and its races.

While her parents were alive, she was instructed by her mother to become a sentinel herself which she did in due time. She became skilled with the bow and over time, a strong and worthy opponent to any of the horde races considering her training. All that time within Ashenvale it self had given her an insight on how to adapt to her surroundings, but not only that, she was left with great knowledge of the local vegetation. Easily she could tell which herb is poisonous, which one is capable of being used as a healing reagent. She had used her knowledge of the mentioned as the third war came to the elven lands. Even after five thousand years she had remained without a life partner and she is in no rush.

Nellina was one of those who were fighting against the legion during the battle of Mount Hyjal. When the time came to commit to the final fight in the defeat of the legion, she gladly answered in revenge of her parents. Her father was killed by the legion and her mother was slain by the horde in the first days of their invasion when they were lead by Grom Hellscream. These events were not taken lightly by Nellina. They have further reinforced her will to stay within the sentinels and see the third war through. It gave her the will to survive, but above all it made her reckless and angry. She was often scolded for her actions which in the end gave a glimpse of will to quit the sentinels after the war was over.

It struck her to see humans, dwarves, orcs, trolls and tauren along with them, fighting the legion. It is often that she observed such an event in disbelief and she wasn't out to make friends at the time. Most of them would get a cold glare if any would come to approach her. A wounded orc would be left to die and she would merely walk past him or her without a care in the world, some would even catch a stray arrow. She did not care that they were temporary allies, the legion could be easily blamed for their deaths. After all the legion did command a good amount of undead and had skeleton archers.

After the battle and the loss of their immortality, she had retreated to Darnassus. Eventually she quit the sentinels and had given much thought of the outside world and its races. Even if she had a hatred for most of them she decided it was perhaps time to venture out and grow out of the elven forests, see what the world it self has to offer. Hear the opinions of other races about her own people and perhaps change them to better. But in truth that was not even half of it. With the borders now open she was consumed by wanderlust, but in such state she thought that perhaps if other alliance races note that the Kaldorei are willing to go out of their forests to help others even if under heavy siege by the horde it self. Then, perhaps they would turn to the Kaldorei and help her own people despite the newest addition of worgen within their lands and the alliance tearing through Barrens like a wildfire.

In her travels she had visited Stormwind, Ironforge and in the end Hearthglen. At first, in Stormwind, she looked upon the high stone walls with distaste but grew to understand why they needed them. The humans are far from being like the Kaldorei, not all of them are fighters and strong people who are in tune with the nature. It was their way of survival, she learned to accept it and was happy to see humans build parks and preserve nature to an extent unlike the goblins and the orcs who simply tear down through everything. She always refused to take the tram to Ironforge, she preferred walking. No flight master would get her to pay up and fly off to Ironforge. But alas in her leather outfit, the cold soon got to her as she approached the snowy lands. There, she had gotten her plate armor.

As she entered and walked past the gates, freezing, the dwarves looked upon her and one of them shouted out. "Aren't ye freezin' lass?"

Nellina would hate to admit it, but she gave off a brief nod. The dwarves welcomed her and offered her a place to warm herself up within the taverns of Ironforge it self. After some time there she began to make friends, no matter how silent she could get. They valued her for her honesty, but not only that, she developed somewhat of a humor among them.

One day, one of her dwarven friends approached her. "'Ey lass... Yer gonna freeze 'op out there, ye kno'?" Nellina understood the cold temperatures of the dwarven lands and eventually succumbed to the idea of wearing something warmer, thicker and more protective. The dwarves offered to create her a full set of green plate armor in exchange for coin, a couple of favors which involved fighting kobolds, Dark Irons and trolls.

Much of Dun Morogh reminded her of Winterspring, she admired the snowy landscape and enjoyed it. She would not stay all too long there, soon it was time to move. In her travels she went towards the last destination of her travels, a place where she heard that all races work together and set aside their differences.

As she grew closer to her final destination, to the bastion of the Argents, she found herself under attack by a group of undead. Striking them down one by one, she became surrounded. No matter how much she would swing her sword, always more seemed to come her way. Being tackled off of her feet, she soon noted she was not alone as an orcish voice shouted out. "Lok'tar ogar! For the Argent Crusade!" The orc ran over and kicked the minion off of Nellina, bashing in his skull in the end. After him followed a blood elven priestess, striking the undead with holy light and shackling them. Human riflemen fired off from the bushes, the battle was over and the orc stood above her, offering a hand to get up.

This is a moment she never thought she'd live to see, saved by an orc, a Sin'dorei and a couple of humans. She would not die today even though she feared not death. She had lived long enough. Her eyes stared at the orc for a good moment and she accepted his hand as the tension rose around them. Once she was up, the Argents sighed in relief.

The orc spoke. "You are far from home, elf."

After a brief chat with them, they took her back to safety of their base which was Hearthglen. She spent some time there, observing the diversity of the races and how many of them got along. How they decided to set their differences aside to fight for a common goal. She felt she owed them and as such decided to sign up with the Argent Crusade. Indeed, she had been looked upon as if an alien within the city of Hearthglen. There were some male Kaldorei within the Argents, but females were a rarity.

There she met commander Krilari Dawnsend and the champion Reigen. Surprised that she is being recruited by Sin'dorei, she did not speak much of it. Her answers were brief and clear and she made it known that they will not get any trouble from her. After many of these events, she changed, for better or worse that is left for others to judge.

What happened to her parents? You mention revenging them in this paragraph, but I think it would be beneficial to provide a sentence that explains how they died and how she took that.

Updated, I hope this is enough.

That's a sufficient addition!

I'll go ahead and give this initial approval, in case anyone else has something to address.
