Character type: Guard
Appearance: Lhoki is tall and rugged looking. He looks more suited for working with runnerbeasts than as a guard, but hey, looks can be deceiving. He's got a tiny mustache, and medium length auburn hair that just won't listen to him.
Personality: Lhoki is a rather straight laced man. He talks slowly and makes decisions slowly, and always errs on the side of good, almost to a fault. He's the type that sees most things in black and white, and any gray just upsets him. Lhoki's a gentlemen, to males and females alike. Although he prefers females, he won't say no to the right man if he ever comes along. His morals, however, prevent him from taking advantage of some of the perks of living in a Weyr. Openness about sex is all well and good for other people so long as it doesn't affect him, but he himself doesn't particularly condone it or participate him.
History: Lhoki grew up as the oldest child on a farm outside of a small hall outside of Arolos Hold. He spent many years on the farm helping his da' and helping to take care of his family. His mother died giving birth to his youngest sister Soon, however, his da' grew old, and his sisters, soon all left, and Lhoki didn't have any aspirations of being a farmer all his life. His father accepted that and allowed his son to move them both off of the farm. They left it to one of Lhoki's uncles and packed up to move to Arolos Hold.
Information about Lhoki's pets
Pet Name: Dark
Pet Type: brown Wher
Appearance: Dark is just slightly darker in color than Lhoki's hair. He's got a dark rich auburn color to his hide. He's rather a large size considering his background, and he has a tendency to look menacing even though he's very well trained. He has a tendency to 'smile' which looks more like baring his teeth than like a friendly look.
Personality: Dark is a _good_ boy. He's still half-feral, which is something that few people ever forget and they shouldn't. He, however, has been well trained and knows the difference between ~food~ and ~not food~. Specifically ~not food~ is anything that Lhoki doesn't give him permission to eat. Dark has learned that in order to eat he has to be patient and it has to be 'in' his food bowl before he's allowed to eat. He's never been attack trained and has learned that unless he's given permission, he is _never_ even to look funny at another person. It's taken him a long time to get to this point, and it takes a firm hand and constant reinforcement for him to stay this well trained, but most people consider it worth it.
