How they feel about
: knows better than to think they're all bad, but those who are are really bad.
Elves -- herders: it's a hard skill to master, but he's got it in spades
Elves -- magic users: a rare sun villager with magic, but he respects and reveres those who have stronger talents
Elves -- bond-riders: never had a bond, though pets and mounts train him up. he's looking forward to having a true bond.
Trolls, etc: can they be any worse than the murderous humans that took his lovers? From what he's heard, they are!
Bond Animal Info if any: No bonds but learned to tame zwoots, the large camel-like creatures in the desert. He prefers smaller, more easily ridden mounts - such as no-humps (horses) and stripehides. In general he can take an angry, wild beast and have it relaxed and accepting in a few hours.

Had lived in the Sun Village, and set out on his own, and met up with a dark skinned elf named Wellspring, then another named Dusk who tsked her tongue at them for standing out like they did... They came to Bald Mountain long after the other Dune Tribe did, but Wellspring remembered them!
