Character type: Healer
Appearance: Nhias isn't very masculine, which doesn't mean he's more feminine. There is some feminine qualities to the young man but even then there are plenty who are small. Nhias is only five feet, five inches tall but that doesn't say much given that he is, and probably will always be, a lanky young man. Even despite the well-formed covering of muscles that is visible under is lightly bronzed skin there isn't much body weight to Nhias. Heck he isn't very strong either. It is simply his lack of weight which shows off the firm muscles.
Personality: Nhias isn't the sort who would ever actually be a leader, he couldn't even speak an order. On the other side, Nhias doesn't make that much of a follower either. Nhias has a slight independence from those around him. He simply holds himself back to the point he only doesn't follow orders if he has enough reason not to.
History: Nhias was born up at Fort Weyr, which doesn't fully explain his attitude. But he did grow up being trained to follow the leaders of the Weyr. He wasn't supposed to have an attitude about anything. It didn't stop the enthusiasm the boy developed. Or the sense of wanting to be free that Nhias developed, but Nhias also saw how everyone was treated. He stiffled his longing to be free, but spurts of enthusiasm still wiggled free. But he grew up and followed the example of others. He simply became a healer like how his parents were.
