Character type: Staff
Appearance: Osbournel is a typical 6 footer with the physique of a farm worker. Burley, grizzled already. Grey-green eyes set in a wide face with hair of a short black stubble. No tattoos or any such markings. Three scars, on his chest, and thighs.
Personality: The ranginess and bulk of this man would make one think he is bereft of feeling and wont only for violence or correction of same. Instead he is a gentle lamb to those he cares for while a person who will in his own time, take stripes on those who cross his path with intent of harm.
History: Apprenticed to the Harper Hall at 10, he is an accomplished carver of woods, he contributes a ranging bass voice to the chorale group when they sing at gathers. Ironically for all his lumberingness he is a natural at carving, making mistakes but not giving up on the task. He is also adamant about the quality of his instruments and will not try to repair a piece of wood if there is a problem in the carving, he will simply recarve another piece. Awarded his Journeyman's knot at Boll at 24 turns, however on a boat trip up the coast his ship was blown off short landing him in the harbour of Arolos, himself nearly dead from firehead. After 7 seven-days in the inifirmary he was permitted to speak to the weyrleaders and Lord Holder as well as the Harper folk to take a posting there. He subsequently notified his master and was accepted by the weyr and hold folk of Arolos. All that said shows his tenacity and willingness to cooperate. However he is adamant in that he will not back down if he is right. He is a laughable man in that he laughs a lot, shunts angst from his life as if an extra burden, currently mateless but does not deter him from his good humour. Protective of his friends.
