Name Pronounced: soro
Appearance: Handsome enough for a young man his age, with unruly, short blonde hair and intensely focused sky blue eyes. He has a worker's tan, from having been raised in a cothold in the South for most of his life. He has a strong jaw on which he's proudly starting to grow a (thin) golden mane. His nose and ears are somewhat large for his face, but don't take away from his appearance. He's a large guy, too, measuring a good 5'10" already and no hint at stopping there. His shoulders are broad and well exercised. Littered along his entire body are dozens of scars from ''adventuring'' and ''training'' as Sorho calls it. He has a favorite knife with a decorated bone hilt he carries on himself at all times (and may try to sneak it in even if prohibited).
Personality: Sorho... has character. He's stubborn, he's headstrong and he's very driven when he sets a goal for himself. He can be loud and fearlessly speaks his mind, which is bound to get him into trouble on plenty of occasions, and sometimes doesn't know when to give up. Honorable and full of teenage pride, he's quick to fight if he feels offended in any way. While he's not very good at things like reading, writing, and math, being as dense as he is, Sorho's actually pretty good at reading people's body language and at anything physical you put in front of him, whether it's building, labor or punching. When he's not being a pain in everyone's arse, Sorho can be quite boisterous and friendly, and very open to drink, gamble, spar or do anything considered manly. He's not a dimwit, he's just easily outwitted.
History: Sorho doesn't remember much of his first few years. He remembers a woman holding him, and sometimes a fireplace and a rocky ship. Other than that he's lived with Estee, Benia and their children and foster children his entire life. His early childhood ''up north'' was a pretty happy one. Benia left for a time, because uncle Deyar got sick. Sorho remembers that because as soon as she returned the whole family packed up and moved south.
Information about Sorho's pets
Pet Name: Sanji
Pet Type: Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: He's a medium sized bronze, not too big and not too small. His hide is a sandy, faded bronze that gets darker the further down to go down his body.
Personality: Sanji is rather well behaved. He was never very hard headed, and he's very patient with Sorho, which is a boon, because it takes a great amount of patience to deal with Sorho. Sanji's one weakness is his adoration for girls. He loves any female and is very protective of them. He melts when a girl pets him.
