Character type: Other
Appearance: His last growth spurt of nine turns ago left him a big three year old. Since then Naythan has grown slowly, leaving him fairly tiny at four and quarter feet tall. He's a soft boy with the petite form of his body. Though twelve Naythan looks the part of being even younger because of his pixie facial features and perhap his aquamarine eyes. His vibrant red hair is in a wild mass of curls about his features, the strands of which only reach down to the nape of his neck.
Personality: Naythan makes it hard to guess his age for most of the qualities possessed by him belong either to boys or older teens. Even at twelve turns he had developed a recklessness more common in teenagers mainly because he is reacting to peer pressure. The pressure tends to get under his skin far too easily. His vibrant impetuousness has called into question many things, probably more than he should challenge but Naythan is far to adventurous. Especially as he simply wants to live up to the expectation of those teens closer to his age. Yet he's a boy where one mere thing isn't enough to hold his interest for long. Spontaneity would fit as his middle name if he had a last name. Naythan is an eager child willing to try new things. Which has grown a dark curiosity that hasn't fully developed for now. His certain innocence about more adult thoughts doesn't affect his ability to learn quickly. What doesn't matter to him is that he goes to the extremes, even jumping to conclusions about people in his haste to find something interesting. He typically speaks words which are considered very blunt end. Subtle is not, and probably never will be, his strong point. However he's a cheerful child...sometimes violently cheerful.
