Character type: SeaCrafter
Appearance: Barto has blue eyes, light brown hair, and a healthy tan. At 5'10" in height, he is slim and strong from an active life. The heir to a seahold, he carries himself with dignity, but can also perform complex gynastics with great skill. He likes fine clothing when he has the chance to wear it.
Personality: Barto is thoughtful and serious, but has his playful moments. He has a strong sense of justice, and as a senior apprentice he kept an eye open for apprentices who bullied the younger ones. Master Zeylan allowed him to spend most rest-days at Island View Hold, learning to manage the Hold he would eventually inherit.
History: Barto is the youngest child, and last surviving son, of Barkeli and Latorna, the holders of Island View Hold.
