Thorn was a lythari fighter and adventuring companion of Liriel Baenre and Sharlarra Vendreth.[2] She was a champion of Eilistraee and a Moonhunter, able to travel through moonbeams.[3]

DescriptionEdit

Thorn was tall and lithe and appeared much like a moon elf, except for the feral light in her amber eyes.[4] She had dark, raven-colored hair[5] left unbound with a single streak of silver-colored hair, which was a mark of the favor of Eilistraee.[6] She preferred to dress in all black colors, the same color of her pelt in wolf form.[6] She often wore leathers and a chainmail vest.[3]

PersonalityEdit

She was feral and enjoyed eating fresh meat.[7] She was mostly stone-faced and calm, however, but acted very straightforward and blunt and could easily be considered rude. As a lone lythari, she had no interest in manners and etiquette; and as an outcast follower of Selûne, she had neither patience nor mercy for her and the goddess's enemies. She also had a very high resistance to pain and torture, never compromising herself in the face of danger or agony.

She had a longing for companionship, being a loner and an outcast from her pack, and thus joined forces with Liriel Baenre after the events of Windwalker in the Rashemi woods.[1]

She enjoyed very rare (i.e., raw) meat.[1]

HistoryEdit

In 1361 DR, Thorn followed Fyodor of Rashemen and his companion Liriel Baenre to western Faerun and back at the bequest of his grandmother, Zofia, who had promised to send a Moonhunter to retrieve his body if he fell while on his quest.[8] She helped transport Fyodor and Liriel to Rashemen and, once there, helped them defeat a band of drow led by Gorlist that was pursuing Liriel.[9]

Thorn continued to travel with Liriel and Sharlarra Vendreth for at least ten years.[10] In particular, she developed a bantering friendship with Sharlarra. Ca. 1371 DR, she was with the two in Hlammach, Impiltur, serving as a hired blade for the Impiltur military.[1]

CombatEdit

She used a sword and a bow to fight and was quite skilled.[6] With her sword, she could easily match seasoned drow fighters one-on-one.[9]

She also used some magic that her goddess granted her, namely transforming a ripped lock of her hair in the drow warrior Gorlist's hand into a serpent.[11]
