Character type: Staff
Appearance: Being fifteen turns old doesn't leave Kiyhun with much time to grow bigger than the five feet, five inches that he is already. Not that another inch or two would make that big of a difference on the young boy. That he isn't the most healthy of individuals hasn't kept him from developing into a fine looking man, one who's form denotes a person more designed for speed. That body of his is compacted without at excess to the various muscles rippling under his supple, slightly pale flesh. The trim shape giving him a sleekness of form which is attached to athletic legs that are slightly on the long side. That hasn't given him just speed, there is a flexibility to him that goes along with his speed. The downside of not being in the best of health is that he's more frail than he looks. Or at least his skin burns easily enough when left in too much sunlight, by now it's nearly impossible for him to get a proper tan.
Personality: Kiyhun is the type who won't speak unless there is something that needs to be said. Anything else would be babbling, such rambling embarrasses him highly as he's confident about having said things he shouldn't. Others catching his mistake is even worse! Knowing that he was wrong stings badly considering that he can be emotional about such things. He certainly doesn't want to be the one to let the cat of the bag. While he's not particularly modest there are other reasons why it isn't that hard to embarrass him. Kiyhun is perfectly aware of things that he isn't ready to hear. Still there is no doubt that he is susceptible to his emotions, vulnerable both to flattery and embarrassment.
History: Kiyhun's mother, Hiua was a simple apprentice healer living at Telgar Weyr. She had a plain affair with the brownrider which ended in her pregnancy. There was no signs of there being a difficulty with Hiua's nine months. The first signs of anything off was when month nine came and went before Kiyhun was born. His only misfortune was to be born while his mother was feverish. He tore Hiua on his way out but he was born healthy, his lungs positively wailing.
