Usual Garments/Armor: A simple leather harness, a leather kilt, a single shoulder guard, a bandana over his eyes.

Other: He carries scars around his eye sockets that poke out from under the bandana.

Personality: He shows much disdain towards almost everyone. He has been tossed out by his people and so he does not trust many people. The only person he truly trusts is his brother, Telvan, the only person not to disown him. If one was to gain his trust, he would only use them to a mean. He is a cold, dark person and so he will seem stand offish to any one, even his own brother. He respects those of his 'order' but will not fully trust them due to they are known for using people.

History: Tanavar was born just before the War of the Ancients. At three years old, he was forced to hide away in a cave. During the hiding, his mother went into labor and with her aid, he was able to help tend to the newborn Telvan.

After the war, his family settled in a small village at the base of mount Hyjal. Tanavar helped raise his brother, since his father died in the war. He helped his mother gathering herbs in order to help his family get by.

During his -teenage- decades, he was attacked by a Satyr while he was gathering herbs. He was sure he was going to die until his brother came to his aid, wounding the Satyr to the point of retreat. This caused Tanavar to believe he owed his brother his life. When Tanavar was healed, his brother confided in him about the secret training a Sentinel was offering him.

After this incident, Tanavar began to turn towards fishing. He admittedly was jealous of his brothers training but he loved his brother and so he did not allow it to interfere with their relationship. When Telvan went off to pursue mercenary work, Tanavar wrote to his brother weekly.

When the War of Shifting Sands came along, Tanavar got word from his brother that he wished for him to join him in a village near the front lines. Tanavar could not turn down his brother and so he set off for the village.

During a midnight attack on the village, Tanavar was forced to fight. His brother had become injured and in Tanavars fury, he let loose a hail of stones upon the Quijari warrior, drawing it away from his brother. Tananvar lead the creature into a group of Sentinel's and they cut down the creature. Tanavar returned to his brother and carried his brother away to be healed.

Shortly after returning home, Tanavar was approached by a masked, male Kaldorei wounded and out of breath. The man asked him to hide him. Tanavar hid him away in the woods and tended to his wounds. Shortly after he was healed the man revealed who he was, Warlen Firestorm, a Demon Hunter. Tanavar was taken aback by the man, but he did not report him. In truth, Tanavar was curious.

Warlen was indebted to Tanavar and Tanavar decided to take advantage of this. He asked Warlen to train him in his ways. Warlen was apprehensive at first, as was expected. Warlen then agreed after Tanavar told him the story of his brother and how he was inspired by his brothers fighting and was tired of being helpless (though he was still secretly jealous of his brother) . Warlen began to train him in the dark ways of the Demon Hunter.

They trained tirelessly for years until Tanavar was ready to be ritually blinded. Tanavar had shown promise in his finesse with the glaives and his ability to channel basic magic. They spent 6 months tracking down a rogue Fel Hound 150 miles from his village. When they confronted the beast, Tanavar jumped in battle with the beast, trading blows equally until Tanavar finally landed a fatal blow to the Fel Hounds back. The beast tried to crawl away but Tanavar quickly brought his glaives down on the beasts head. Warlen was proud of his prodigy and showed him how to absorb the creatures energy.

Warlen then taught Tanavar the ritual to blind himself and sent him into the woods to use the energy he had taken from the beast to complete the ritual. Tanavar heeded his masters orders and went to the woods. He found a secluded spot far from the village and began the ritual. His screams could be heard all over the wood as he completed his ritual and lost his eyes.

When Tanavar had returned to his master the next day, he found their hut burned to the ground and his master lying on the ground, dead. The night before, Sentinels had finally found Warlen and killed him for a past crime. Warlen had killed a fellow Kaldorei centuries ago, before his training as a Demon Hunter. Warlen was convinced that the man was practicing the dark arts, though the man was not. Tanavar had nothing left in these woods and so he left, staying away from any Sentinels.

Tananvar was following reports of a Fel Hunter near SouthVale when he was found by Sentinels, they watched Tanavar closely, recognizing what he was. Tanavar was not pleased with this and so when one of the Sentinels approached Tanavar, attempting to ask him about the reports of the Fel Hunter, Tanavar lashed out. The Sentinel was taken aback and reminded him that he should respect the Sentinels and what they stand for, Tanavar then spit on the Sentinel and cursed her for killing his master, though she had nothing to do with it. This caused the other Sentinels to attempt to arrest him an a fight broke out. Tanavar was able to kill one of three. He was forced to retreat, he set fire to the woods around him and set off in the confusion.

Tanavar then went into hiding, avoiding the battle of Mount Hyjal and as soon as he could, he went to the Eastern Kingdoms to make his way to the Outlands. He wanders around the Eastern Kingdoms in search of a way to get into the Outlands.

I was told to submit this here.

Alrighty! So I've had the chance to read this and here are my comments!

Because of the misunderstood and socially unaccepted nature of Demon Hunters, it requires being trained by another hunter to be initiated in, as the techniques and practices would be very far from common knowledge. Your history will have to describe this training with a lot of detail.

You mention the brother being trained by a Sentinel. This would have to be a secret practice, as post war of the ancients, the Sentinels were a strictly female organization up until the Third war. Also, the practice of arcane was forbidden (your elf would have been around to witness and remember the exile of the Highborne for refusing to give up the practice). Unless he began study before the exile, it is unlikely he'd find a source of training for it, the exception being perhaps that the Demon Hunter that trains him was formerly a sorcerer himself (which is the path Illidan himself took).

Another note is that Demon Hunters do not summon demons, so he'd have to find and kill one to perform the ritual blinding.

And lastly, remove the bit about summoning a Demon in front of Sentinels and then killing them. Firstly, as mentioned, he wouldn't have the ability to summon demons, and secondly, even though they are trained warriors, Demon Hunters are specialized in combating demons. A group of trained Sentinels are no pushovers, and would not be so easily taken out by a single hunter. In fact, they'd almost certainly have the upper hand.

If you need a point of reference for what we look for in Demon Hunter training descriptions, try doing a search on the CotH wiki for other Demon Hunter profiles!

Hope this helps!

Great improvement here! I really like the flow of the story. A couple more notes to help further it along!

You mention that his reason for wanting to train is jealousy. This is probably something he shouldn't tell the hunter, even if it may be true in fact. Perhaps he can say that he was inspired by his brother's fighting, even if secretly it was jealousy.

Also, you mention that he practices some magic. Just double check and make sure any spells he knows that aren't rogue abilities are listed in the Skills and Abilities section. You can again refer to previosly accepted Demon Hunters for an idea on what kinds of this we allow (metamorphosis being the main thing that we don't allow).

Lastly, just fix your class listing to read the following:

Class: Demon Hunter (Rogue)

Great job again on the edits! :)

The only ability that he really was able to successfully use was the ability I have listed.

After I get the approvals, what happens then? I know there's another step but I'm fuzzy on it.

Is it usually this long of a wait for a DH?

Usually much longer, actually! In the future, please bump after a week of no responses, not a few days.

Now, I would like to see some personality expansion. There has to be more to him than "he doesn't trust people except his brother."

Also, if I'm reading this correctly the Sentinels were trying to kill him and his master for summoning demons, which you removed...however they're still trying to kill him without provocation for "dabbling in the dark arts." While most night elves obviously don't like or trust demon hunters, I doubt a group of sentinels would just up and kill any that they find. Demon hunters are outcasts, but not enemies.
