Character type: Other
Appearance: Streams of muscles carve warm flesh into flowing curved line that trails up his arms before ghosting over the rest of his body. The river of muscle cut a slightly less obvious path along as it moves on but it still forms valleys around the small rises of his chest as the flow continues descending to his flat planes of stomach. There the firm abdomen confines beneath the surface wells of rippling strength fed by the streams of muscle in a way they are well hidden from all senses but touch. Rising together once again in order to grace his hips with controlled strength the streams return before diving down to create curving paths of power over his shapely legs. Yet, to spite these rippling rivers that stray curves over him, his form has maintained a vague illusion of vulnerability partly from the delicious rises of the 5 feet, 7 inches lean ectomorphic N'nage.
Personality: He tends to share his opinions openly without a care how his judgement might effect. He tends to see the negative rather than the possitive and it makes it tough for him to be satisfied. Between that and his stubborn struggle against accepting others beyond the usefulness of dirt he isn't the most funloving of guys there is. He treats everyone with a cool seeming undercurrent of dislike. His judgemental behavior comes more from his own lack of confidence trying to make him seem not as poorly off as others. It has poisoned his views to the point that he is pretty sour. It has driven him to seek perfection in what he does. But with a foul temper with will seek vengence. What does amaze others it that despite his seeming dislike for people he is a caring person...at least he won't hesitate to leap forward to protect victims or giving the aggressor a piece of his mind.
History: Nanage was born in Nabol Hold to a mother, Nangea, part of The Ygirda Group of Traders (TYGOT). His father, Khandres, had a fallout with his original love but when they reconciled later he left Nangea to return to his over love. Nangea briefly spent time enduring Nanage's health before following Nanage's father. However her attempts to get Khandres to dump his lover failed miserablely as his mate had a jealous fit in which she killed both Nangea and Khandres. The authorities took the woman into custody, the children were given to Nangea's TYGOT family to foster. Nanage grew up and Apprenticed to Master Kyladar. The new Apprentice was confronted by older cocky Apprentices who threatened him and his half-sister, Thehd. He was bullied into doing what the older Apprentices wanted like the other weak willed one. Nanage obey the Apprentices who specialized in theft, con artist ship, murder, etc. But the Apprentices were nice enough to let Nanage take a good portion of the loot for himself. The wealth grew quite addictive for the boy, he began to act more like the bullies leading the group. Thehd saw the changes in Nanage and followed him around, a vigilance that paid off when she witnessed one of Nanage's hiests. Unfortunately the older Apprentices caught her. When she wouldn't be intimidate they killed her in front of Nanage's eyes to teach both a lesson. Nanage was stunned into a state of shock by the death. He ran mostly on automatic. His careless behavior was interpretted as a threat to the older Apprentice and they had Nanage beaten, three short strokes of a whip upon his back which would leave a scar. However shortly after that he snapped out of his shock to realize he wanted the apprentices stopped. After stealing more marks from the other had, he turned the evidence against the older Apprentices to both the Masters and the authorities at the next Cothold. The Apprentices were caught and the chain of trouble was stopped...but the betrayl he'd pulled left an empty feeling in himself. He didn't like it and kept trying to go back to how he was before turning the Apprentices in. His struggle to be a nasty person was given a chance of being proved when an Ista Weyr Searchrider wanted to Search him. He jumped at the chance and got the satisfaction of being proved right when he didn't Impress. But he felt like no one believed his claim yet and vowed to remain a Candidate until they believed him. But Driykte, a fellow Candidate and bluerider J'ner kept trying to reach some more positive part of Nanage. Then Driykte Impressed blue Juknenieth and was too busy to bother Nanage. Still as he watched Dr'ykt advance in his class there was a bit of pride and curiosity about what it was like. The next thing he knew at his seventh time Standing he had Impressed to green Visigoth. The delighted pressure of love interest he got from Dr'ykt and J'ner was too disconcerting, plus he was terrified about caring about someone only to get hurt. Instead he transferred to Arolos Weyr to escape them once for all. He did get a kitten as a going away gift from Dr'ykt but he has managed to put them behind him for awhile. He has been at Arolos for just over three months.
