Character type: Trader
Appearance: Garion is 5'10" tall, and strongly built from working hard out-of-doors. His clothes fit better these days. He has light brown eyes, and his naturally mousy hair --- allowed to grow to shoulder length since he dropped out of the Seacrafters' Hall --- is bleached blond by the sun. He's tanned and tough from outdoor living.
Personality: Garion and his brother Tenrion look rather like twins, and have the twin-like habit of finishing one another's sentences. However, Garion is one turn older, and was taller by almost 2 inches until Tenrion finished growing. Garion still refers to Tenrion as "my baby brother" when he can get away with it. He's always seen himself as his brother's protector and taken the lead in whatever they do. They've been in one another's company continually since Tenrion was born, up until the day Garion joined a Trader caravan. But Garion's become more independent and self-reliant since he left the Hall 11 turns ago to become a Trader.
History: Garion and his brother are originally from Motheno Hold, at the edge of the deep forest on the eastern frontier. Their parents, Tengar and Riona, hunted for wild felines and shipped the hides to the coast, along with any other rarities they could collect. The two boys grew up there and helped their parents, until the Drought set in, when the beasts moved elsewhere and the crops started to dry up, leading to the Famine. After their parents died in the Famine, Garion realised the two boys couldn't stay there alone, so they began making their way to the coast, finding what food they could in the empty lands between Motheno and the sea.
Information about Garion's pets
Pet Name: Roller
Pet Type: Flit
Appearance: Roller is a small blue flit from a wild clutch. He's full-size, having hatched 17 turns ago.
Personality: Roller was the last in the clutch to hatch. He might not have hatched at all if Garion hadn't cracked his shell for him. He got his name because he rolls on the ground when he has an itch that needs scratching. He tends to stick close to Garion when not fishing with his clutchmate Saffy.
