His parents visit him at Redwall every month. He spends most of his time out side away from every one else. There is one beast who seems to be out side a lot also. Arlen sometimes wonders if she does it on purpose. Her names is Adara. She arrived at Redwall in a battered condition. Her family had been murdered by a band of roving vermin. They had tried to catch her and make her their slave but she got away. Then Arlen had found her slumped with he back against the walls, she was battered and had cuts and bruises all over her. Ar;en had carried her into the gatehouse and cared for her. Though he was very shy he had found something beautiful in her.

Once she had gotten better and she had been able to respond to him he kind of shy-ed away from her.

Could I have some feedback this? I've never done a Caretaker before so i really don't know much about it.

Trims, prunes, weeds, thins.  Transplants, assists harvesting, masterminds military campaigns against garden pests.

I think he would largely be a dynamic chara who shows up in Abbey-based threads.
    I think this really good, though. He is simple, but personable. 🙂 It certainly has my approval.
