Character type: SeaCrafter
Appearance: Sumner stands at an average height of 5'8", and is neither particularly skinny nor especialy heavily built. His skin if fair, tanned only slightly by turns working outside, and seems odd in comparison to the shock of brown hair he has. His eyes are a light green, and usualy full of good humour. Like most sailors he has a collection of tatoos - most noteably a tunnel snake curling around his right wrist. He has a scar on his left cheek, obtained when a friend mis-cast his line during a stint on a fishing vessel.
Personality: Sumner's greatest strength, and also his greatest weakness, is his forthright manner. Sumner says what he means - calls a spade a spade and has done with it. Everything is up front; wether that be admiration, discomfort, or downright disrespect. He's also very much his own man - taking orders because it is his pride to be part of the ships crew, and not because he feels any great *need* to.
History: Born and raised in Tillek, the son of a traveling seacrafter and his bar-maid wife, it was inevitable where Sumner would end up. He first came to serve on a ship at the tender age of 9 - fetching lures, tying off odd ends or net, and recieving his education from the ships Scribe.
