Character type: Holder
Appearance: Evvan is 5 feet 9 inches tall, with a sturdy figure, though he lost weight as a result of a fever epidemic in Tillek, and it took him a while to develop muscle strength again. He has dark curly hair and brown eyes.
Personality: Evvan has always been a little resentful of his younger brother Tevvion. From the age of 12 he had to help his parents on the family fishing boat and help support the younger children. But when Tevvion turned 12, he was placed as an apprentice at the Arolos Seacrafters' Hall, with the prospect of becoming a journeyman and earning a good salary, while Evvan was to continue as a common fisherman. When Tevvion flunked out of the Hall, Evvan was even more annoyed than his parents at the waste of an opportunity for betterment --- one that might have been Evvan's. After the family moved back to Arolos, Evvan missed no opportunity to mock at his brother's menial employment as a common worker at the Healer Hall --- even though Tevvion gave every quarter-mark he could spare to his mother to help the family through the first year of their resettlement.
History: Evvan is the eldest of the five children of Vional and Tevva, a couple of fishcrafters from a seahold near Tillek.
