Other information: Tauriel is the Captain of the Guard in the Elven realm of Mirkwood. She has grown up surrounded by royalty, her parents were both killed by Orcs in her hometown. That's where Thranduil, the King of Mirkwood, found her. She was afraid, and alone, and so the King took her in. The she-elf was always seen as a bit of an outcast due to her appearance. She has always donned long red hair, where most Elves have had more neutral colours. Tauriel was quick to ascend the ranks of the Elven guard due to her skills with both a bow and blade, though she prefers to use the former. Though she has a strong will, she is easy to break, emotionally. Her parents death affects her still to this day, though she will never admit it.
