So, the main character in a story I'm working on is an Elven warrior. He had made his fortune in a faraway land and moved away in order to settle down with his wife and start a family out in the country. Unfortunately, his past comes back to haunt him. The mercenary organization that he was essentially enslaved by as a child and worked for until he was a teenager begins to target political figures. And after a group of the mercenaries attempt to kill Alek, he realizes that his retirement is going to have to wait. Going to the king to offer his services in destroying the organization, he is appointed as the leader of an expedition which he must assemble, the purpose of the group being to hunt down the Rouge mercenary guild and destroy them. Just wondering what your thoughts on the whole 'veteran hero coming out of retirement to finish what he started' might be, too cliche?
