Character type: Other
Personality: Jovial, Nyles is one of those rare people who actually grow up the way people expect him too. He was a very happy baby, a pleasant child, and he even turned out to be a happy go lucky teenager. That's not to say Nyles is perfect, he's not. He has the irritating habit of wanting all those around him to be happy with him. He's not sure why it is, but he'll laugh when a situation calls for a more serious demeanor. This is a very disturbing habit to have when you're being punished for something. This is a very disturbing habit to have when you're being punished for something. While he was happy just not perfectly well behaved- Nyles wasn't bad, he never intentionally hurt anyone, he just wasn't a goody-goody.
History: Born at Dollanol Hold, Nyles grew up near the sea. His father was a fisherman, his mother the typical fisherman's wife. While he was out to sea, she was home raising the children and keeping the garden, the small animal farm and generally providing for her family. Nyles helped his mother for the first five turns of his life and then he hid on board his fathers ship and from that point on he was put to work on board. His father figured if he were old enough to be sneaking about he was old enough to accept the consequences. It was quite a sight to see a five turn old wielding a deck mop swabbing his own little corner of the ship.
