Character type: Crafter
Appearance: Tenrion is just about 5'10" tall, not quite as skinny as his brother Garion. He has dark brown eyes, and his fairly short mousy hair is streaked blond by the sun. He's tanned and tough from outdoor living. He has more energy than Garion.
Personality: Tenrion and his brother Garion look a bit like twins, but Tenrion is one turn younger, and was always an inch or two shorter until he reached his full height. The two boys have the twin-like habit of finishing one another's sentences. Tenrion has always been the "little brother", but finally began to realise he could do anything Garion could. He made some new friends at the Seacrafters' Hall and got from under big brother's thumb. Meanwhile, the food was good and plentiful, his bed was soft and bug-free, and Tenrion was contented.
History: Tenrion and Garion are originally from Motheno Hold, at the edge of the deep forest on the eastern frontier. Their parents, Tengar and Riona, hunted for wild felines and shipped the hides to the coast, along with any other rarities they could collect. The two boys grew up there and helped their parents, until the Drought set in, when the beasts moved elsewhere and the crops started to dry up, leading to the Famine.

Appearance: Saffy (short for sapphire) is a medium-size blue flit from a wild clutch. He's full-size now, having hatched 17 turns ago.
