Character type: Crafter
Appearance: Lirte is growing rapidly. Last year when he first became an Apprentice he was just about five feet tall, but since then he has been growing like a weed. As a result he looks rather clumsy, his legs too long for his body. His floppy, straight blond hair is messy and is cut just above his eyebrows. His blond mop of hair hides his ears, which are rather large. First Lirte burned under the harsh sunlight, but reluctantly his skin has tanned.
Personality: Lirte is overzealous about life in general. A bright sky leaves him with a huge grin, and to make another person smile leaves him overjoyed. He is hyper and exuberant, and often makes large gestures as he talks that damage leaves or knock over potted plants. His energy is as much a curse as it is a blessing, but most people find it impossible to do more than grumble about him. He is full of life and youth, and his high levels of energy force everyone around him to remember that fact. Any request made of him will be met with overwhelming enthusiasm, though his new height and his excited nature cause him to destroy more than nurture.
History: Lirte's father, Liders, was a Harper who painted more than he sang. His mother was a sweet cotholder who fell in love with the much older man. The two never married but produced two children between them. Lirte was the eldest of the two.
