Eidlr is quite a large chap. Easily the tallest in his village, perhaps the strongest, and deftly fierce with a blade or club. One would never call Eidlr’s parenting abusive, at least not to his face. Although he never has nor would strike his child, the sheer force of his earnest gaze, the power behind his words, and the fear stuck deep into poor Ruyonn’s heart might provide some serious evidence of abuse. At his core, he merely wishes to instill the toughness which was learned to him the hard way, as a neglected child in the dirty unpaved roads of the village.
