Hubert Ellis

About

Hubert is Tor's father and runs a small farm near Meridell. When Tor asked to become a Knight, his father and mother agreed to let him, if it was what he really wanted. He often works as a tinkerer for the Market Town Trader's Guild. When the Darkest Faerie attacked, he was abducted by the Juppie Plant Beast, but later saved. He travelled to Faerieland to see his son be honoured by Fyora.

Ok... Done! How about that! A little polish and good as new!
My lady, any word from Meridell?
I fear for our capital. Can't anything be done?
This is more danger than anyone expected, my lady.
I never expected... This is amazing! This is more than we ever imagined for our son!
You can't imagine how proud we are for everything you've done.
A true defender of Meridell!
