Indus Monette - the illusionist
Indus comes from a remote village of sheepherders and other peasants where his rough handed parents remain, but he does have an adventurous friend lower in the valley at a bustling crossroads. His rating in Peasant and Scavenger might be assets for a group; he might end up leading those tasks if no other companion has a rating to handle those. His kit is a bare minimum despite having cash dice to begin, so he must rely on the kindness of his companions.
Without a mentor, Indus will have trouble learning new spells, so the extra effort will be required to discover or develop new spells. Lacking Pathfinder detracts from seeming like a ranger. He is almost a liability.
I used the Torchbearer 1st edition to fit my concept for this build. At a later time, I'll review this build with the Torchbearer 2nd edition rules.

He is poorly-equipped, innocent, and oddly skilled. It is an underwhelming elf ranger but should render an interesting character.
