Character type: Renegade
Appearance: The change from cotholder's to RedStar gave Hiwayn the chance to dress in fine clothes he wasn't used to, and he's vain enough even after a few years that the shine hasn't worn off. Shining knives and fine clothes make him happy, and perhaps increase his attractiveness from average to handsome.
Personality: Like a few RedStars, he's not exactly a *bad* man, just one a little too bright for his own good, and with perhaps a few less morals than most people. Why should he have to stay in a boring cothold his whole life, when people a lot less intelligent than him got to be Lord Holder? So he decided to pull himself out of that, and get out there and *do* something. It was just unfortunate that the "something" he chose happened to be the RedStars rather than any type of Craft, or the Weyr.
History: Hiwayn was born the fourth son of five, and grew up bored. Born too late to inherit, and too dragondeaf to ever Impress as far as he saw it that meant a life which ended in working as a boring labourer for the rest of his life. He didn't want to just settle down and have children - he wanted excitement and glamour!
