Tormund Ellis (Tor for short) is a Yellow Lupe from Meridell who dreamt to one day be a heroic knight instead of a simple farmer. He starred in Neopets: The Darkest Faerie, and is also featured as a hero in the Flash game Dueling Decks.

- Main article: Neopets: The Darkest Faerie
While playing as Jeran with his sister Lucy (playing as Lord Darigan), Tormund accidentally releases the penned Whinnies after tripping during a victory stance. After collecting every last Whinny, he's asked to do assorted chores for his parents, and his father eventually asked him to take a package to Meridell. For his protection he was given a wooden sword, and asked to treat it like a real weapon to be used with honour, like any knight would.
Tormund was dispatched on an errand by his father, Hubert. While travelling, he comes upon a Techo beggar (Kelland in disguise) being mugged by thieves, and for helping him the Techo gives him a magical amulet. When he arrives in Meridell, Tormund is robbed by Heermeedjet and Merouladen, whom he chases back to their lair and is about to be outnumbered before the arrival of an Old Knight (King Altador in disguise). Chasing them off, the Old Knight then gives Tormund hope in being a potential knight, and begins to make preparations and returns home to ask permission to be a squire. Upon returning, however, he finds Lucy has wandered into the Shadowglen Woods and not returned. Chasing after her, Tormund defeats the Juppie Plant Beast and brings Lucy home, proving to his family his great skill to be a warrior, and received their blessing to be a knight.
Tormund returned to Meridell and began his training under Torak, but when no one would help the village Cogham from Ixi raiders, Tor met the Old Knight who gave him the courage to go and help the village in their time of need. Defeating the raid and the Ixi Chieftan, King Skarl knights him, dubbing him "Sir Tormund", Knight of Third Class. After Tormund receives more training and rests, he awakens to find all the knights went to Illusen's Glade to fight werelupes, and have not yet returned. He finds the Old Knight again, who prompts Tormund to go and help the knights. Tormund saves the knights and defeats Gnarfas, but the Werelupe King steals Illusen's Charm , leaving Illusen weakened and allowing The Darkest Faerie to take control of her and knock Tormund from the treetops. When he awakens, he sees the dark clouds have spread all across Meridell.
Returning to Meridell Castle, Tormund finds The Darkest Faerie, the Dark Faerie Sisters, and a possessed King Skarl in the throne room. The Faeries see and attack Tor, who barely escapes down a drain hole shown to him by servent Faun (Fauna in disguise).
Tormund did not appear in Act 2, as this act focused on Roberta rather than him.
Washing up on the beaches of Brightvale, Tormund meets up with Roberta as she falls from Faerieland. He finds she has a pair of the amulet he wears, and they start an adventure together. After defeating the evil across the land, they sneak into Meridell city and into the lair of Heermeedjet and Merouladen, who show them secret entrance to the treasure room, which contains Fyora's Rod, a weapon capable of defeating the evil of The darkest Faerie.
After Tormund and Roberta make it through Meridell castle and into the king's chambers, they defeat the Dark Faerie Sisters after Roberta neutralizes their defence with Fyora's Rod. She then uses Fyora's Rod to free King Skarl out of possession, who immediately takes the rod from her and dispels the dark clouds over Meridell. After proclaiming how useful Fyora's Rod was, he throws it over his head, and Roberta saves it from falling to the floor. King Skarl then gives all the credit to himself and Tormund, while Roberta gets mad. When King Skarl walks away, Roberta calls Solarin to fly them to Faerieland to face The Darkest Faerie.
Upon reaching the captured Fyora, Roberta gives her Fyora's Rod, and Fyora reveals herself as really the Darkest Faerie in disguise, when the real Fyora breaks free of her bonds and fights her. As the fight occurs, Fyora gives Tormund and Roberta orders to activate a teleporter to go to Altador and find Jerdana, which they do as Fyora is imprisoned in a bottle.
In the final act, Tormund and Roberta have taken a portal to the long forgotten City of Altador. Here they must awaken 4 legends, Torakor of The Colesseum, Kellend of the Bazzar, Fauna of the Park, and Gordos of the Money. Each one has a Shrine or dungeon to awaken their statues. Then, they must awaken Jerdana, the protecter, in Heroes Rest, underneath the Hall of Heroes. Once all of this is taken care of, Tormund and Roberta go to battle with the Darkest Faerie
