Flameslinger is an elf who has the impression of being a show-off, having put on a blindfold to prove that he is an excellent archer with incredible aim. Despite this cocky image, he does possess a good heart, having saved a fire spirit from a watery fate when he was young.
Elves are often said to have a sparkle in their eyes, but Flameslinger was born with an entire bonfire. And the fire in Flameslinger’s eyes was more than just a handy way of heating the house. It gave the young elf the mystical ability to see incredible faraway places. Wherever fiery flames exist, this remarkable elf can use them as an extension of his very own eyes. Flameslinger soon became the talk of the town, and the neighbouring town, and the town three towns over. But he soon tired of visiting rubberneckers. He wrapped his eyes in a blindfold and slunk stealthily off into the forest. Here, he would practice blindfolded archery by bullseyeing Bomb Fiends with his bow.
Then one day in his mind’s eye he saw drowning fire spirit in a nearby pond. Quicker than wildfire, Flameslinger sprinted to the struggling spirit and saved him from a watery grave. A fiery friendship was instantly formed and the spirit gave Flameslinger two gifts – magic fire boots for lightning quick speed and an enchanted bow that shoots flaming arrows.
