Character type: SeaCrafter
Appearance: Garouh is a small whelp of a boy. Aproximately 4 and a half foot tall and maybe 80 pounds soaking wet. Garouh has long tar blackened hair and beady brown eyes. Garouh is also constantly sporting black eyes and bruises from fighting with bigger kids.
Personality: Garouh has a bad attitude problem and tends to argue quite bit, though when he's on a ship he does follow orders explicitly. Anytime someone tries to correct him on information he gives will generally get a courtesy swing at their nose, again this is when he's on dry land. Garouh always respects the captain of any ship he's traveling on and never causes trouble for his shipmates when on board. Garouh hates dry land with a passion and would be completely satisfied to never hit port. His only gripe with being on ship is that do to his size and strength, or lack thereof, he's usually swabbing the deck or stuck assisting the cooks instead of manning to fish nets and long lines. Garouh is also distrusting of dragons and firelizards as they can go between as well as read minds, but would love to be a wher handler, because he doesn't think whers have the two main draconic abilities, if his dreams of being captaining a boat of his own and being a seacraft master fall through.
History: Garouh was first introduced to the seacrafter after he washed up on an Istan beach after a freak storm, which sank the small raft he was using to float down the river from Fort Hold,with no memory of his family, where he was from, or anything other than his name. Garouh learned to live off the land quickly. After a few months of pilfering whatever he might need from minor holdings, he decided to find the port and stow away on a ship to the southern continent. After being caught stowed away in a life boat, Garouh was put to work on the ship. Garouh was thrown off when they made it back to port, where he again stowed himself away in a life raft. Aftter three times, Garouh was finally accepted as an apprentice seaman and traded to many different ships with permission from the captains, as he constantly gets in fist fights when he isn't aboard a ship, but when a ship pulls in to a new port he always finds a way off the ship and usually into another fight.
