Reyes Lord has a point. How many would still like Strongbow if he wasn't devastatingly handsome? If he was just an ordinary-looking elf (meaning good-looking in a general sort of way, but not necessarily making the jaw go slack )
I know that I would still like him. His loyalty to kith and kin, his fierceness in protecting what he sees as his - be it chief, mate, cubs or other - and his deepness appeals to me. I must admit he is nice to look at, but give me someone I can count on, no matter what, and you have me drooling.
You would never have to wonder where you stood with him and once you earned his respect you would never have to worry that he didn't trust you.
Yes, I admit, I am a fan of the dark-silent type. However, it is what he doesn't say, what he does because it is in his nature, that is the most appealing, attractive, sexy part of this character.
