Description: Talion has often been described as a person who can be easily angered, at least to those who have offended him, his companion, or those he cares for. This behavior is also commonly seen in battle, where he can often lose control of himself. When he is not in battle, or fighting off those who anger him, he can be known as a very jolly, intelligent, and caring man, though it isn't exactly shown with his face or body. Despite his rather intimidating disposition and looks, he can be very welcoming, warm and caring. When he finds himself in good company, he finds it easy to joke around, and be friendly. When he is by himself, or without anything to do, you can find him reading or working. He will read anything that can further his Forging, Metallurgy, Leather Working, and crafting skills. He could be working on any of his crafting projects as well. This ranges from simply sharpening and maintaining his gear, repairing his partner's armor, or even crafting a weapon for somebody. These skills are a testament to exactly how diligent and efficient he is when he has a job to do. This is also shown true when he is on a job searching for a bounty, or ending a bandit camp.

A giant among men. His stature alone not only dwarfs that of an average Imperial, but the average Nord as well. Built like a mammoth, his body flaunts the extent of strength he has slowly come to aquire of years of blood, sweat and tears. Every muscle worked to it’s fullest definition, and toned to their highest mass. However, his large, rather bulky nature does not hinder the way in which he moves. Like a beast on the prowl, his motions become fluid and light. He finds himself most comfortable in thick forest, moving from shadow to shadow or tree to tree, remaining low and patient without fail. Or in open plains, charging with intimidation and a seemingly uncontrollable wrath. His skin noticeably darker than that of a normal Nord’s, covered in many scars and burns alike. All gained in battle alongside his smaller companion, or otherwise. His stern, and strong azure eyes stare from beneath the cover of his long ebony hair. Neither messy nor styled, it hangs down his back to the start of his thighs in a loose braid. A rough looking goatee outlining his stern and unimpressed downturned mouth.
Weight: 315 lbs.
Build: Muscular, Large
Face: Firm, Strong and Defined, with a sharp jaw and brow.
Eyes: A bright Azure, described to almost glow
Skin tone: Unusually Tan for a Nord
Hair style: Long and Wavy, usually tied back in a loose braid
Facial Hair Style: Grown out, and rough Goatee, tied at the chin
Hair Color: Ebony
Scars: Many. Most of them are miscellaneous and random from previous battles, but he does have one of note. A fairly large and ragged scar that scales from his left cheek bone, down to his collar bone. The scar seems to have not only healed poorly, but possibly became infected at one point before.
Tattoos: He has large amounts of miscellaneous tribal designs that snake all around his body, maintaining a consistent line width and light blue tinge.
Skills and Gear
Talion was taught while apprenticing and self teaching, that your personal nature and personality is key within every creation that you make. Whether that be within the boundaries of leather working or smelting ore, you must project a peice of yourself, and your soul with each piece. This will not only strengthen your creations, but your soul. He was also taught that the materials and sources that you make your creations out of pass on the characteristics from which they originate. For example, the Skin of a Horse made into a War Helm, would spiritually provide the endurance of the Horse from which it was made. These two very important teachings passed onto every single one of Talion's personal creations, and are very important to their story and creation.
Skills: Talion is nothing short of a Crafting Master. Most of the reading and activities he has ever done outside of spending time with, and doing work with Tauriel, have been about the many aspects of the profession. From smithing to leatherworking to metalergy, he has knowledge of and proficiency and even mastery in. Outside of his training in smithing and crafting, Talion is an offensive powerhouse. His abilities with using large weapons with ease, is unparalleled. The power that he can bring with these weapons is beyond the norm. Though this does limit his movement or speed, when he wishes to become mobile, he is more than capable of doing so, but at the cost of losing some attacks. He is well trained in powerful hand to hand maneuvering, whether it be strong hits with his fists, or even throwing his opponent as far as he can. He does contain some skill with long range weapons, however, he is nothing short of a novice. Sure he can knock the arrow, but where it flies is nowhere in his control. Beyond his offensive traits, Talion is a rather skilled tracker and hunter. Though it is rather difficult under normal circumstances, he can blend in quite well with the given time. However, this has never come in handy outside of the realm of hunting, and likely never will due to his style of battle.
Public History: His history is one shrouded heavily, even from his own memory. All that is known from all outside viewers, is that Talion and his partner Tauriel have been together since the begginning.
Armor Set: The entire set of armor that Talion wears, is one that he custom crafted on his journey alone. He crafted it almost entirely out of a Monster of a Wrothgarian Kodiak Bear's Hide and Fur, as it was more than large enough to armor his enormous body. It is seen in the set, that he utilized the maximum potential of the thick skin, from a cloak to even some spare pieces for repairs. He calls this Set Barengar.
Head: Large Helmet of Bear Leather, Mountain Ram Horns, and a Horse Tassle
Chest: Not much, the front of his chest is almost completely open, minus the straps for his shoulder armor, which is made from Bear Leather. However, at his back, he does have the option to put on his thick Bear Fur Cloak.
Arms: Socketed Bear Leather Arm Guards.
Waist: A large Bear Leather Belly Guard and Belt, with a large sheathe at the back. From there, it hangs long leg guards also made of the thick leather, as well as cloth.
Legs: He wears loose trousers, but no armor outside of the leg protection from his belt.
Feet: Bear Leather boots, that stretch to his mid calf.
Every Day Carry: Along with his Armor and Weapons, Talion carries a large, Bear Leather wrapped, Spruce Wood Shield that belongs with his Barengar Set, called the Shield of Maw. He then carries a large tankard, spare leather, a smithing hammer, and a couple of books about certain complicated ways of crafting and smithing. All of this he wraps up in his Bear Skin Cloak, and uses it as a pack. If he ever finds himself using the cloak, he simply dumps his items into his companion's bag without her knowing.
Weapons: His main weapon, and likely the most deadly, is his gigantic great-sword The Ferbraun. Named after himself, as it matches his size and stature, the blade is made of a rare form of hard, and sharp forged steel called Damascus. The Hilt made of a similar steel, but with a darker coloring, and the pommel of a steel covered in a carved dark wood. The weapon is decorated with adornments of vibrant cloth and braids, all eluding to the countless victories it has won. It is a 7.5 foot sword in total (90 in., 228.6 cm.), with a 1.5 foot handle (18 in., 45.72 cm.), and a 6 foot blade (72 in., 182.88 cm.). Weighing around 15 lbs. (6.8 kg.), this weapon is truly a perfect match for this man.
Sheild of Maw
Deity's Ability: Kyne, like his partner, has gifted him with an aspect of her spirit. His ability is the Kyne's Spirit of Bear. With this, he is able to astral project himself into the form of a larger than average full grown Kodiak Bear. While in this form he has the appropriate strength, speed, power, and intimidation etc. of the animal he becomes.
