Dr. Aaron StriderPast life:
Aragorn II Elessar TelcontarAge:
6'2", brown hair, gray-blue eyes
. 6'6", long black hair, Ranger scruff, light scars.
Lanky, dressed in layers of worn old clothes. The only thing that keeps him from looking homeless is the fact that he keeps clean.
He looks a little more homeless in the face and hair now, but Aaron is dressing better since the clinic closed. He's got a creepy air about him, and his eyes are sharper than you'd expect. More detail here.Occupation
