Character type: SeaCrafter
Appearance: The best word to describe Ashkore would be 'mousy'. He's smaller than most boys his age and definately skinnier, even with his ravenous appitite. His bright green eyes are filled with the same mischief many boys his age are known to have, but also the cleverness that most also lack.
Personality: While his appearance may be ordinary, Ashkore seems to be out to prove that he is far from plain. He's a cheerful child, enjoying life at it's fullest with every ounce of his energy, but throw an insult his way and you've let something dangerous loose. Bigger doesn't make you better and he'll get in all kinds of trouble to prove it. Though, fighting seems to often be the way that he does 'prove it'. Now, he'll never start a fight, but he will always defend himself if he happens to get in one, cause he's quite sure no one else will.
History: In big families, more often than not, the youngest usually isn't first priority. Even more so when that family is part of a big Hold like Half-Circle Seahold. Ashkore, being the youngest of ten, was pretty much left to be raised by his siblings and other people in the hold and usually only got attention from his parents when he'd managed to get into trouble.
