Character type: Harper
Appearance: Appearance: Master Jeffern's hair and long beard are snow white. He also has thick, bushy eyebrows that are white. His eyes are a sparkly blue. He is short and wiry, with rough, calloused hands from years upon years of playing alomst every instrument on Pern. Jeffern usually goes around glaring at people, though, so most people think he looks rather scary.
Personality: Master Jeffern is friendly, but only if you get to know him well. If you get on his bad side, than there's almost no getting off of it, because he tends to hold grudges for years and he has a memory like an elephant. He tends to growl at anyone who gets in his way. Stupid people (especially stupid harper apprentices) annoy him more than possibly anything else in the world.
History: Master Jeffern was, of course, educated in the north. He was born during the Turn's End Gather at Ista Weyr. He did not, however, grow up there. His parents were Traders, and so little Jeffern, or Jeffy as he was known then, spent his childhood running traveling all over the northern continent. By the way, try calling him Jeffy sometime, see what reaction you get!!
