Character type: ShipHealer
Appearance: Anden seems sometimes like an animal caught and held on the thinnest of ropes. There's an air around him as if at any moment he might break the rope and bolt away.
Personality: Anden is not a leader. He feels much more comfortable doing what someone else has ordered or suggested than thinking out what to do himself. Because of this he allows Cherone to lead him, perhaps into more trouble than he should. Sometimes he finds himself doing things that he just *knows* won't end well, just because he doesn't want to tell his friend they're a bad idea.
History: When Anden's father sent him to train to be a ShipHealer, he never mentioned it would be like this. He grew up in a small sea hold, and his father thought sending the boy away to apprentice would be a good way to get some learning in the family. He was told to listen carefully to whoever he apprenticed to and he'd learn a lot.
