Yilmarin looks ancient, but though he could be considered getting on in years the weathered wizened look of his skin is more to do with his heavy use of magic than the many years he has travelled the forests of Haegaldvaal. However only another experienced magic would recognise the tell tale marks of an overuse of magic and he is careful to avoid using magic in the presence of those that might talk. He preaches that living in harmony with nature doesn't require any sort of mystical special powers, just common sense applied in new ways. He believes that man and nature should be in balance, not beholden to the chaotic will of nature but also not ignoring the power of it either. His self proclaimed goal is to educate as many other people on how best coexist with natural resources. He was born in the mostly unknown village of South Nolhold. As a young man he was rather outspoken with his opinions on what was wrong with his small village and why the village councils ideas were so flawed. His views were already contentious that even if he had been more diplomatic things probably wouldn't have gone much differently. He wasn't exactly thrown out but his stubbornness and the total lack of respect he garnered led him to abandon his small village soon after he was of age. Though his views have not changed significantly since he has learnt to be a fraction more diplomatic in his approach. Over his many years Yilmarin has tried many ways to spread his ideas and has eventually ended spending many of his days working as a wood cutter and land clearer. This rather labour intensive job is ideal in that allows him freedom of expression in ways previously denied him. His ideas about which to trees clear and which should be saved are a bit unusual but his speed and the results he achieves results in plenty of opportunities despite his few eccentricities. It is also well well known locally that those farms that tend to stay with his unusual layouts tend to cope well throughout the varying seasons. Sadly he has had little opportunity to design gardens, parks or large tracts of land which he desires but he keeps trying. Ideally he would like to get work for the nobles of Haegar as he has been told that getting the ear of a nobleman is the best way to further ones own agenda.
