Character type: SeaCrafter
Appearance: A gruff man, weathered by too much salt, water and wind. His skin is brown and he carries more wrinkles on his face that most men his age. A gray and brown mop of unruly hair crowns his head and his square face give him a mean look to him. His eyes are rich brown, like finely polished wood. He still stands strong though, 6'2 and weights 200lbs.
Personality: As unfriendly and cold as Pertio might look, he is a really a friendly man and a good father. He is very dedicated to his crew, which happens to be his children. Though he still grives for the loss of his wife, Callandra, he doesn't show it to his children, though he will never marry again. A wise man, he is an excellant Captain and a most able bodied salior. His strongest skill is ship navagation and he very rarely ever gets lost, storms or no.
History: Pertio was the son of a sailor, his father having the nasty luck to drown in a storm a week before he was born. Pertio's home growing up was the trade vessel Kamdini, named for his grandmother. His mother, Kaladis, raised him by herself and took control as Kamdini's captain. She herself was seacrafter, well versed in how a ship opperates.
