Name: Dendri (Mahk Lidyr)
1003 years ago... Mahk Lidyr was orphaned when the machines attacked the outpost settlement where he lived. The sole survivor of the attack, he was near death when natives of the planet found him. Although he was accepted at first, he soon became an outcast because of his natural ability to controlling the energy in the forests around him. He left the tribe at the age of 23 and wandered the trees. The more time Mahk spent in the woods, the more he began to take on the traits of the vegetation around him. He took on the life spans of the trees, the armor of their bark, and the energy they posess. He learned on his own the secrets of manipulating nature to his will, even creating it out of nothing.
For a thousand years he lived like this. Travelers would tell talls about the old man in the woods that seemed to be part of the forest itself. Legends spread through out the system about a fantasticly powerful magician. The native tribes worshipped him as a god, and named him Dendri. When the threat of the machines returned, he was saught out to help battle the menace. Dendri agreed with the promise of solitude once his task was complete.
And so, Dendri left the woods for the first time in 1000 years to earn his peace and finally take revenge on the creatures that took his friends, his family, his home.
