Memories from Dren’s Childhood
Dren was born in the town of Flagonford, in the Southshire where his family grew apple trees. They had a modest Orchard and “Fallowbriar Gold” apples were sought after for their sweet taste, with their natural sugars producing a potent cider known as “GoldenJack”.
Dren grew up around apple trees, orchards and the folk who farm and use them to make cider. He and his childhood friend Jingo Branchbeard roamed the Fallowbrair Orchards, and those of the neighbouring farmers, climbing trees, scrumping for apples and trying to avoid capture by the often vexed Farmer Bollo.
With his trusty slingshot, Dren enjoyed the halcyon days of youth, roaming the orchards in his free time and helping with the harvest whenever his Papa Jack could pin him down.
Upon reaching that “certain age” Dren felt the familiar wanderlust that bedevils the Hin folk and set off as a Yllaren, to wander the lands and discover his calling.

Refuses to believe that something is impossible – “Is happy to accept that anything is possible – he has seen magic and thinks it can do anything”

Likes to invent – "Currently working on ‘Fallowbriars Marvellous Sack-Barrow’ ".
Loves Apples – “Will wax lyrical about apples given a chance and will always ask if they have any “Fallowbriar Gold” apples or “GoldenJack” Cider when in a Tavern or Market.
