What do you know?
Do you know me?
The Kind and the proud. Hello dear one. I am known as Elke. I am a proud runner in the Stormfast herd. I do enjoy my position. I love the feel of the wind pressing against me as I gallop across the land, and what better way to enjoy that than to do it every day?
My herd is quite important to me, I love each and every one of them, though some more than others, and would never even dream of trading the life I lead. I am known for my kindness, so feel free to ask me anything you please. I, of course, will be happy to assist in any way I can.
Don't brag now. You seek to know of my looks do you? Well, I can't say they're anything special, but I suppose I can describe myself to you. I am a rather plain looking mare, I posses a chestnut coat, and a mane and tail of the same shade. I am of average height I suppose, but I am thin and light on my feet. This should explain to you how I came about my position as a runner. My eyes are dark brown, and they seem to display my every emotion if one watches closely. That particular trait is much to my own disliking.
My favourite trait, on the other hand, is the white stripe that stretches from the middle of my forehead to the tip of my nose. I am quite proud of it and think it adds to my otherwise unremarkable features. There you have it, my looks. I told you didn't I? I am as plain as can be. I suppose I must make up for it with my personality, no?
I remain set apart. Speaking of my personality, I suppose you want to hear me speak of that as well. My mind and way of thinking is quite straight forward. Do not however, mistake my way of thinking for stupidity. I am plenty smart, at least in my own mind. I am known for beind more kind than necessary, especially when matters involve herd members younger than myself. I simply enjoy being able to help all others as best I can.
Of course, everyone also has flaws, and I am no different. I regret to admit that I am not terribly brave, in fact, I am quite easily frightened. I suppose that is why I am not cut out to be a warrior. I am terribly frightened of the battles they tend to get into. The only thing that frightens me more is the evil itself. Let's not end it on that note though, something more positive should do. In fact, why not positivity itself? I do try to be as positive as I can be and to help those around me to remain calm and happy despite the terrors around us. Now, let us move on from this subject. I don't like to delve to deeply into my own thoughts.
Do you remember? Now, don't get too excited. My history isn't something I know much about. You see, my memory is vague, and my time left for speaking to you is short. I will tell you what I do know for now. I was born into the Stormfast herd to a mother much like myself. She cared greatly for me and raised me to be the mare I am today. I don't remember much of my father, but I do recall that he was very brave; sadly that is much the opposite of my own traits. Anyway, I grew to adulthood in this herd, and have come to greatly adore it. I became a runner at a relatively young age, and will most likely serve in my current position until I retire to the position of elder. That is, of course, if I last that long.
The Answer is yes.
