Character type: Crafter
Appearance: Lumao stands at 5'0" and has a bit of a yellow tint to his skin. He's got black hair that he keeps short, and absolutely no facial hair. His eyes are small, black and almond shaped. He has long eye lashes as well. He has no scars, of any kind, but his hands are rough. He's not overweight, but rather looks 'jolly.' All in all his appearance is rather un-threatening.
Personality: Lumao is a con artist, and a rather good one. He has a nice, sociable attitude, and always seems to be in a good mood. He'll lend a helping hand to someone when he thinks it's necessary to build trust. He'll sit and drink with someone if only to find out his drinking partner's past. He doesn't ever get angry, and tends to tell people to forget about any sort of offense they might have caused him. Of course, he doesn't forget about it and will be quite sure to use it against someone if he can. He looks for all the angles, and uses them.
History: Lumao was born in a trade wagon and had stayed with his family until he was 14. At that time he apprenticed to a tanner. What he didn't know was that the tanner was a rather corrupt person. The tanner taught Lumao how to make what appeared to be quality clothing that would almost fall apart after the first or second time it was worn. The tanner also gave him a master tanner stamp with which to stamp his clothing. This meant less time spent on each piece of clothing, less cost for the supplies and more profit. Lumao worked all the way up to Senior Journeyman and after staying with the tanner for awhile after that, left to trade himself, taking the master tanner stamp with him, of course.
