History: Farren was born in a small cothold beholden to Arolos Weyr, the oldest of six boys. His life was relatively normal, with a few ups and downs. At 17 he married a girl from another cothold, and they had four children. When his father died Farren took over the cothold's management. When the drought hit Farren was distressed over the loss of the food. He had little enough to feed his family, and his beasts were beginning to die off as well. When the Weyr took what little food he had left, Farren grew very angry indeed. He swore he'd get back at the weyr some how, no matter how long it took.
