History: Daniel started playing role playing games when he was sixteen, however, he had never read J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings. After a year playing, he saw a copy of the first volume and decided to try it. He was hooked from the beginning. He bought the other two volumes and soon had all of Tolkien's books. He joined the Tolkien Society and even learned Quenya. He was a devoted fan. So, it came as no surprise when he woke up at his eighteenth birthday and found out his ears were pointed. He soon realized that he had gained other abilities as well, all of them connected with Tolkien's elves. Not sure what to do about it, Daniel asked his father for advice. Daniel's father owned a security firm and he saw the potential in his son's superior physical skills. Daniel was trained by his father himself and became a top operative of the firm. After four years working with his father, Daniel decided it was time he had his own business. He quit from the firm, which his father didn't like at all, and started his own "security consultance" firm. By that time, his fame as an elf and an ace was quite big and things were easy for him. Daniel now works as a bodyguard and security specialist for Rio's celebrities.
