Elstan was one of the town guard that once served the Master of Esgaroth. When Bard Bowman became king of Dale, Elstan was among the first to swear loyalty to him. The tall grey-eyed, gaunt northerner was given the rank of the First Captain of Dale, and commanded the Royal Barracks. He was famed for his skill with the sword, and his gleaming suit of dwarf-forged armour. Whenever the kingdom was threatened, he was there to defend it.
