Daniel is young, little more than 18 or 19, with short black hair and dark brown eyes. Although skilled with a bow, he lacks the experience to be called a truly great warrior. Agile for a human, he is not very strong looking.
Young Daniel Fletcher used to be a guardsman at the south gate of Lyn, until the half-fiend Avása showed up and started terrorizing people. Daniel tried to help people into town, against his orders from Captain Miller to close the gates ASAP. Captain Miller originally tried to have Daniel hanged, but Van was able to talk the punishment down to dismissal for the day, possibly without pay. The current plan is for Daniel to resign from Captain Miller’s guard, learn a little bit of Van’s trade, and then rejoin the guard when the political climate is more favorable to people such as Daniel.
Daniel’s first task, after being taken under Van’s wing, is to help Van track down the last of the weretigers who tried to kill Turmahael, his half-elf wife, and their daughter Alice.
According to Van, Daniel’s “young trade name” is “Young ’Opper” (Hopper), short for “Young Guard ’Opper”.
