I think the scarf is too much for Andare. My comments about the 
Forestkeepers seeming shady and being seen as untrustworthy have more to 
do with the fact that they are seldom seen in settlements, and most of the 
times when they are seen, it's briefly and when they are not at their 
best. They're usually dirty, disheveled, secretive, and in a hurry. That's 
just in "Human" settlements like WE and Erinsford. Out in the wilds, they 
live another life completely - not necessarily more refined, but more 
relaxed, at least. They are very much modeled on Tolkien's Rangers in that 
they sometimes look foul but feel fair.

As far as attractiveness goes, he's neither attractive nor repulsive. He's 
just average looking, really.

As far as the Apothecary and his neighbor/wife, I like the neighbor/wife, 
and the apoth02_01 sketch, though I think he would be older 
and slightly thinner. The second sketch - the zombie Apothecary - I don't 
like much. While it is true that the Apothecary has inflicted himself with 
diseases and their cures, so he may be scarred by lesions and boils and 
even weakened by disease, he is still basically healthy. I imagine that if 
he has any chronic diseases, it would probably be something like 
osteoporosis or some slight respiratory trouble. I can't imagine him 
having trouble with rheumatism or arthritis, since he is a herbal healer.

I very much like Thorig's Axe.

I also like your sketch of Bregon.
