Kenray, Elven Champion

Elves, and to a certain extent dryads, are the most humanlike of the Aldryami, grown specifically to deal with humans and the other elder races. Outwardly they look like lithe humans and when encountered outside of their forests can even be outfitted in a similar fashion.

Krenray is a green elf warrior and defender of the forest. She has been outfitted with bronze armour and an enchanted sword. As a green elf she does not need to hibernate like her brown cousins and can therefore protect the woods all year long. Like all elves she is sensitive to iron. Aldryami are strongly connected to the Plant and Fertility runes.

No-one knows why she has come to Big Rubble. She is clearly working for Rohir Oaklimb and according to some rumours is looking for a sacred grove or particular plant.

Elf with Short Sword was how this mini was tagged on the back of RuneQuest Box 6: Humanoids & Aldryami. Perhaps it was because the UK edition of RuneQuest had a different cover that the obvious inspiration for this figure was not referenced. To me she is clearly the warrior battling the rock lizard on the cover of the US edition.

The Aldryami have evolved significantly since the early days of RuneQuest. They were always described as more plantlike and alien yet the early illustrations were very much of the Tolkien variety, albeit with an ancient Greece twist. As a result these early sculpts followed that theme.
