Tauriel as a beginning 'TOR' character Can't Post

With The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug coming up in a few months, I was wondering what Peter Jackson's original character Tauriel might look like as a beginning Elf hero for The One Ring - Adventures over the Edge of the Wild (TOR). We know relatively little about her beyond a brief description and a video clip or two, but I wrote up what I think she might be like as a player character, I originally did this on the TOR boards, but I've modified it with Evangeline Lilly's recent description of her character in mind. Where do you think that i've erred and what would you do differently?

Name & Culture: Tauriel - Elf of Mirkwood
Standard of Living: Martial
Cultural Blessing: Folk of the Dusk
Calling: Slayer
Shadow Weakness: Curse of Vengeance

- Specialities: Elven-lore, Mirkwood-lore
- Distinctive Features: Hardened, Keen-eyed, Enemy-lore (Orcs)

- Body: 5 (7)
- Heart: 3 (6)
- Wits: 6 (7)

Valour: 2
Wisdom: 1

- Awe (favoured): 2
- Athletics (favoured): 3
- Stealth (favoured): 2
- Awareness (favoured): 2
- Healing: 1
- Hunting: 1
- Song: 2
- Battle: 2
- Lore: 3

- Bow: 3
- Sword: 2
-Dagger: 1

[This was a tough decision. Rather than raising any of Tauriel's Common Skills, I gave her one additional rank, each, in Bow and Sword to reflect the weapon proficiency she seems to have in the films. If I had only raised one Weapon Skill then I would have probably bumped up her Battle skill a rank and given her Search or Explore. More depends on how many points I would have left.]

Damage: 5
Parry: 6
Armour: 2d

- Woodland Bow

- None

- Weapons: Bow, Sword, Dagger (enc 3)
- Armour: Leather corslet (enc 8)

- Starting Score: 25
- Fatigue: 11

- Starting Score: 11

BACKGROUND: Memory of Suffering: A long time ago, Elves akin to your folk dwelt around the Naked Hill in the south of Greenwood the Great before the Necromancer claimed it to build his fastness of sorcery. New that the Shadow has fled, you have often journeyed there to spy upon that dreaded place to ponder on the hurt suffered by your people in many years of cruel warfare. Many of your kinsmen prefer to forget and be merry, but you know that evil is seldom conquered forever.

Revision 1 [In reply to] Can't Post

On second thought, I went back to skills. I returned Tauriel's Bow skill back to its original 2 ranks and used the points to increase her Stealth and Battle skills to 3 ranks each as common skills are more expensive after character creation is finished.

Note that Tauriel is 600 years old; older than standard beginning Wood-elf heroes. Consequently, I made sure that one of her traits was Elven-lore.
