Beginnings as a Reeve|
Ethalen Finnolaigh hails from the lands north of Edinborough, Scotland. Inverness, and the shire surrounding it, was his home. His clan thrived in the raising of cattle and held considerable wealth and noble title. That was until, as is the way of Scots, one of Ethalen's own kin carried off the family fortune and left a black mark upon the family. Disgrace was Finnolaigh's mistress.
Seeing his fellow clansmen and families suffering set a spark in Ethalen's heart. Determined to restore honour to his family name, and bring fortune back to his kin, Ethalen took up the mantle of a reeve, a Ranger, and set upon the trails of the Highlands.
With bow and sword, garbed in black and working under cover of dark, Ethalen quickly proved successful in meeting out justice against those robbing fellow Scots of wellness and happiness.
