(so, this is the deal. Have fun!)


Character I will be using:

Name: Eonwe
Race: Human
Rank: Slave
Appearance: bright, fire red hair, sharp green eyes, she is about 5 feet 3 inches tall.
Spouse: None

History: She was born to Eomer and Lothiriel, but her brother became jealous and had her kidnapped and sold into slavery. She knows her history, but fears what her brother will do should she escape back to Rohan. She lives and works under a cruel master, yet does not complain of her situation. She instead seeks the silver lining, and lives optimistically. She helps other people whenever she can, and refuses to be a burden to anyone in any way. She is very clumsy, often tripping over branches, roots, rocks, and her own feet. She is gentle in nature, but has a firey temper if riled and if she is facing an injustice towards a person. She is only not clumsy when she is dancing, and reading is a thing she loves to do when she can sneak away to read.

Weapons: none






Eonwe carried the basket full of goods from the market along the old dirt path. She wore only her servant frock, light blue in color, thin in fabric, and it hung loosely on her thin body. Her green eyes were cheerful, and her red hair bounced as she walked. Sometimes she would trip, but somehow she managed to catch her balance before toppling over entirely. Her hands tightened on the basket, if she dropped or damaged anything in any way, her master would be very upset. She continued on, a tune playing in her head and making her step light along the way.

Spouse: None

Her gait slowed as she got closer to her master's castle. She stopped outside of the woods and looked at the dreary stone building. She slowly began walking, and just when she got inside the courtyard, she tripped, sending the basket flying, and she cringed as the fruit bruised. "Hey!" her master stormed over, whip in hand, and lashed at her back with it. She curled up against the strikes as he yelled at her. The whip tore her dress and back. But she refused to cry out.

Crixus had been hard at training all day. He had paused to take a drink of water, when Eonwe, another slave whom he did not know very well returned.As she tripped he knew what was going to follow. Sure enough, out came the master with his whip and began lashing at her.
He spat at the floor in disgust. It was one thing to whip someone who deserved it, but quite another to someone who already had enough hardship. He returned to training, more fired up than before.

The master left her to tend the men training. She weakly got to her feet and got the bucket of water, grimacing as she felt the blood run down her back. She put a dipper in the water and walked over to where the men were training, and kept her gaze down. The men saw her and gathered around, taking water and drinking from the dipper. She kept her hand on the stone wall for support.

Dropping his practice sword he made his way to the water once again, his mouth dry.
He drank and noticed Eonwe, clearly in pain. Crixus felt a pang of pity and filled a cup with water before handing it to her.
''Drink. For the pain if nothing else.'' Without waiting for a reply he turned and left her to resume training.

She glanced up in surprise and took the cup, her mouth dropped open slightly. "Why---?" he walked away before she could finish her question. Why did he seek to help her? As a fighter even he had more status than she. She looked at the water and brought it to her lips. A sip was all she got before the whip lashed again at her back "You get back to work! No standing about!" she cried out, and stumbled forward, the cup dropping from her hands. He took her arm and dragged her to the stables. "Them bags of feed need moved." he shoved her towards the bags. She bent and picked one up, trembling at the pain as it laid on her back. The master left her to carry the forty bags one by one. She continued on into the night, carrying the bags to the other end of the stables.

After the days training he had sat down to eat, but just as he was finishing a guard spoke his name.
''Crixus. You are summoned.'' Nodding, he followed the guard and stood before his master.
''Ah Crixus. Finally. I have news that will be to your liking. You have been chosen to compete in the main event at this weeks fights. If you win you shall bring us much coin'' Placing an arm around him he spoke further. ''Win and see all of our fortunes raised.''
Crixus merely nodded in agreement. ''Thank you. I shall not fail you.''
He was dismissed with a wave of the hand and made his way back to his quarters. As he walked he saw the girl who had been victim to the masters cruel whip earlier, carrying bags to and fro.
Walking up to her he took the last few bags and began to move the bags where they were meant to go, still not speaking.

She looked up weakly and rushed over "No! You mustn't! If he sees I am not doing it he shall be angry! Please!" she begged him, any more of the whip, and she knew she would not be able to stand it. "please, let me finish..." she glanced around, certain she would feel the sting of the whip on her shoulders any minute.

He continued paying no heed to her words.
''You worry over nothing. I have just left his presence and he is falling to his bed at this very moment. ''
He lifted the final sack and lay it down with the others, completing the job.
''There, your work is finished.'' Turning his back to her, he began to walk back to his chambers.

She watched, stunned. Why had he helped her, twice? She couldn't believe it. Out here slaves fended for themselves, not risking themselves or their own backs for a fellow slave. Let alone a fighter slave for a hard labor one. "Wait!" she called out, and rushed after him. She had to thank him.

Crixus turned slightly as she called to him. Looking to face her he spoke, both his voice and expression void of any emotion.
''Yes?''
He wondered what she wanted. If she preferred him not to help and not to interfere she had to but ask.

She knelt in front of him "Thank you. Your help was welcome, and I thank you very much." she stayed bowed in front of him, wondering what he would say or do. "I owe you a great debt." she kissed his boot, as was custom for a slave to do to a lord. But he acted as a lord, as a gentleman, by helping her.

''It was but a few bags.'' He was confused as she knelt in front of him and even more so when she kissed his boot.
He lifted her up by her shoulders and spoke.
''We are both but slaves. You gratitude is well received.''
Turning he walked back to his room and lay down. How she had shown him such respect was a shock to him. As a slave it was rare to encounter such a thing. He fell asleep not long after, his thoughts on his upcoming fight.

She watched him go, then turned and stumbled to her small blanket that lay against the wall of the castle. She laid down, her thoughts only on tomorrow. Using her arm as a pillow, she curled her body up against the cold that settled over the castle at night. Her eyes soon closed, and she slept like a corpse.
