Name Pronounced: rye - eck
Appearance: Ryeck is the kind of man whose presence demands attention, the way he carries himself with confidence and self-assurance is generally enough to draw the eye, but his looks aren't half bad either. Turns of smithwork have gifted him with a strong, hard-earned physique, nicely-muscled figure standing at a very decent 6'2. Sinewed form has the tendency to be rather intimidating, cold and dismissive demeanor only adding to that, though it's not entirely intentional.
Personality: Ryeck comes off as cold and dismissive right off the bat. He'll pay polite attention and maybe give a nonchalant acknowledgement every now and then, but unless the speaker is someone he values or the subject is one his concerned with, he honestly just doesn't care. It's not that he's trying to be rude, but he doesn't feel the need to pay heed to those who don't matter to him or his craft.
History: Ryeck's beginning was uneventful. He was born to a pair of cotholders near Fort Hold who managed well enough in their daily lives, their first and only child. His childhood was not particularly memorable and passed easily enough - there was always enough food on the table and the family was never want for any of the necessities.

Information about Ryeck's pets
Pet Name: Thief
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Thief is nothing if not tiny. He's quite delicate and honestly no bigger than the largest of greens, but that's not to say he's lacking in anything in particular. In fact, he's rather streamlined in appearance, though his larger-than-average wings tend to get in the way and the little thing has a habit of whipping his Pet with his tail when he moves. His hide is a uniform cerulean color with only a slight lightening to a pale blue along his neckridges and the undersides of his wings.
Personality: Thief is just that, a thief. He has a penchant for brightly colored objects and food, and no matter how much Ryeck has tried to curb him of the habit, he frequently steals the items he finds appealing and either secrets them into little niches or flits off to eat them. He is otherwise a pleasant little creature, enjoying attention from all people willing to give it and accepting treats even from those not willing to give them! Thief is a decent messenger, but he will occasionally keep the notes he's given rather than deliver them.
