Character type: Holder
Appearance: Everything about Ashkiem is big. Big hands, big nose, big muscles, big everything. His brown hair is always cropped short to keep it out of the way, and it is quite obvious he did it himself. His eyes are green, his skin is dark from working outside most of his life. He wears things that are practical and not too expensive, seeing as there are more important things to spend his marks on besides everyday clothing.
Personality: Ashkiem is a traditional man. If that's how it's been done, that's how it will be done now. If someone tries to point out that some people have different ideals and traditions, he'll become angry. He's actually angry quite a bit.
History: Ashkiem was born in the Keroon plains, and his accent still reflects that. His family were holders and always had been, and so he was raised to follow in the family's line.
