Character type: Brat
Appearance: Banred is a tall darkhaired boy, having recently gone through a growth spurt. However, like many teenagers, he's also horribly clumsy, not seeming to quite got the hang of his body yet. Chairs are to be tumbled over, tables are to be bumped into, smaller things are to be knocked over, and doors exist solely to be slammed on fingers.
Personality: Without being bad, Banred is far from being a perfect boy. He has many faults. He tends to brag much about what he can do for example, but does very little to actually prove such claims. He's a little given to telling tales if folks upset him, and is not at all brave being among the first to run from a frightening situation, or comply when threatened. He tends to bully smaller boys, and flatter older ones, and is very easy to lead into trouble. It isn'tt that he's bad so much, as that he wants to be popular and made much of, and doesn't see that there are good an bad ways of going about that.
History: Until he was ten Banred belonged to Igen Weyr Creche. One of the crowd of weyrbrats there, he craved attention, and the ability to stand out and be special, developing his bad habits early.
