Character type: Crafter
Appearance: Tenjo is definitely short, and a little too daintily built for a boy - his big feet are the only noticably large thing about him, and he his light build and flexibility mean that despite his physical fitness he's always going to be knocked down in a fight.
Personality: The first impression you'd get of Tenjo would be 'nice'. He's very helpful, it's true, and can't walk past someone who looks upset or hurt without stopping to at least ask them what's wrong: he's the sort of friend who'll listen to your problems all the way through and offer the best advice he can. And he's instantly friendly, most of the time, to anyone he meets, and very respectful.
History: Tenjo was born to two well-off Trader parents who had settled at Arolos: their life, with mother, father and baby, was pretty perfect, but marred by the presence of his mother's cantankerous and extremely strait-laced grandfather, Gerrem. All would have gone much better for young Tenjo, however, had his mother not died in a bad miscarriage and his father left him in Gerrem's care two days later, in a terrible depression and desperate to leave the site of his wife's death: he was quite depressive by temperament anyway, and fell in with a group of rather vicious renegades on the way, killed during the first raid they tried to make.
