So I have been spending my spare time over the past month or so creating all of the main characters from my favourite book series when I was a kid, The Chronicles of Prydain by Lloyd Alexander. I made them the way I picture them in my head, and I am quite pleased with the way everything has turned out, particularly Fflewdder and Rhun. Note that I didn't make Doli or Gurgi for rather obvious reasons. But I did make a whole slew of people, and they all come with custom clothes except for Dallben, Coll, and Achren. Not because I got too lazy, but because other people had already made stuff that I thought went right with them.

Everything I've made is very detailed, with stuff like dirt and patches and lacing and such. I had a lot of fun making all of them.

Custom content and descriptions from the books (with parenthetical citations because I'm insane and can't help myself):

"Her long hair glittered silver in the torchlight. Her face was young and beautiful; her pale skin seemed paler still above her crimson robe. Jeweled necklaces hung at her throat, gem-studded bracelets circled her wrists, and heavy rings threw back the flickering torches." (The Book of Three, p.59)

"Adaon, Taran saw, was tall, with straight black hair that fell to his shoulders. Though of noble bearing, he wore the garb of an ordinary warrior, with no ornament save a curiously shaped iron brooch at his collar. His eyes were gray, strangely deep, clear as a flame, and Taran sensed that little was hidden from Adaon's thoughtful and searching glance." (The Black Cauldron, p.10)

"His hair was tawny, his eyes black and deep-set in a pale, arrogant face. Though of excellent quality, his garments had seen much wear, and his cloak was purposely draped to hide his threadbare attire. The cloak itself, Taran saw, had been neatly and painstakingly mended."

"The bard was tall and lanky, with a long, pointed nose. His great shock of bright yellow hair burst out in all directions, like a ragged sun. His jacket and leggings were patched at knees and elbows, and sewn with large, clumsy stitches." (The Book of Three, p.98)

"The stranger had the shaggy, gray-streaked hair of a wolf. His eyes were deep-set, flecked with green. Sun and wind had leathered his broad face, burnt it dark and grained it with fine lines. His cloak was coarse and travel-stained. A wide belt with an intricately wrought buckle circled his waist." (The Book of Three, p.24)

"A bellow of laughter resounded beyond the chamber, and in another moment a giant, red-headed warrior rolled in at the side of Adaon. He towered above all in the chamber and his beard falmed around a face so scarred with old wounds it was impossible to tell where one began and another ended. His nose had been battered to his cheekbones; his heavy forehead was nearly lost in a fierce tangle of eyebrows; and his neck seemed as thick as Taran's waist." (The Black Cauldron, p.13)

Taran of Caer Dallben
skin - nihilin's edit of louis' skin
hair - seomi
eyebrows - helaene
eyes - barcelonista
costume makeup - belle_ange_16

There never really is any description of him...

In the pictures of Adaon you can see Arianllyn, although since she is only mentioned once ever, I didn't include her. But here are some of the credits of her stuff in case you like her:
skin and eyes by - enayla
hair - XMSims hair 051
dress - matildarose

Enjoy! (Particularly because this was rather a nightmare to collect all the
information and especially to upload (it took hours!), what with all the making files smaller and resizing and cramming pictures together and the new upload system!) And please thank me because this was a lot of work (both the making and the uploading!)

**Please note that the mesh list is not at all complete because there was only room for five meshes. All of the meshes needed are credited properly in their respective places!
