Character type: Candidate
Appearance: An average guy, Matishen has dark brown hair and light green eyes. His features are very straight and narrow: a thin face, pointed chin, and long nose. His compexion, once fair, has darkened over the turns after constantly being exposed to the harsh southern sun. Faint scares criss cross his cheeks from frequent sunburns and sun-damage. He has a very Northern look about him. Not tall, Matishen stands around five foot five in height, with very little muscle on him.
Personality: Not afraid of work, Matishen is a cheerful, willing fellow who goes with the flow. Much more comfortable taking orders than dishing them out, Matishen would rather be the Right Hand Man, than the leader. However, this is only so long as he feels the judgement and orders are fair, and uncorrupt. He can’t stand someone who’s out for their own advancement.
History: Born and raised for most of his life at Telgar Hold, Matishen is the son of weaver Marishele. He doesn’t know his father, and it doesn’t bother him. When he was ten Turns old, his mother took a job at Arolos Hold, and Matishen tagged along.
