Will the Ranger
I think Will is a good character in the Ranger’s Apprentice series. He is a good Ranger because he is very brave and does not get scared to go on wars.
An important reason could be, Will is the protagonist of the book. He becomes a Ranger and comes out in most of the scenes. He is a very important character in the series because he became a leader of archery in the war of Skandia. Will did not give up when he fought with his rivals. He wins by using tricks and his mind from Ranger training.
Another important reason could be, being brave. For example, even thought he was a young boy he tries his best to teach the slaves to fight with the bows. He fights in important wars that will help his kingdom from their enemies. However, Will still needed a protector protecting his beck when he uses his sax blade to block the Temuji. Will had his old friend Horace to protect him from the back because he was a natural sword fighter.
An equally important reason about Will can be trying his best to save the people with him. When he was at Celtica with Evanlyn and haroce, they worked together but Will stayed in the front helping them so he got caught first by the Skandians. Afterward, when Evanlyn and Will got out of the slaves ground, Will was still very weack from being a slave in the cold weather when Evalyn was caught by the Temuji. He got a bow and went outside into the forest bravely to try finding her. Also in the book The Sorcerer in the North, he climbs up the tower in the Castle Macindaw to save his old friend Alyss from Keren. Keren is a Knight that is trying to push the lord out of his place and become a lord himself. She was trying to tell Keren all the secrets that she was not supposed to tell.
Later on, I get to know that Will is a fast learner because he did quite a great job fighting and protecting his friends using only bows, arrows and a sax blade. According to this reason, I can know that he has skill of being a Ranger. He has fast feet and has good muscles to learn archery. However, he wanted to be a knight’s apprentice at the first place although the best Ranger, Halt’s apprentice, chose him. Will was a very good Ranger because he was very natural at hiding in the surroundings. He also uses a Ranger cloak to blend into places he hides.
Furthermore, he fights hard with his antagonists. When he sees the Wargals, he uses his bow to aim for the parts to get herm hurt or die. He steals a Skandian bow to escape from them. Will was also helping the archers as he targeted on the Temuji warriors. He shot the best archers of the Temuji and made them fall out of their horses as they came closer to the Skandians and the Araluens.
Lastly, Will was a young Ranger but a skilled archer. Even though he was good at archery he got better and better as he learned from Halt the Ranger. He could shoot anybody from a faraway place. He knows the different positions so he can make good targets at people or wild beasts like Wargals. When he uses his own Ranger bow, he makes great aims but if he uses a normal bow, he will have to change positions to make nice shots. I can know that he is a great archer because even his master said “yes” that
Will will be telling the slaves what they will do in the war. Will became the leader of archery in the war because the slave had to practice with him learning the positions and the strength of pulling the bowstring.
These are the reasons why I think Will is a good character in the Ranger’s Apprentice series.
