Character type: Trader
Appearance: It is said that people grow to look like their animals, and certainly, there is a ferret-y look about Tisseen's face. He's a wiry little man, short and stringy, and starting to get a little bent over with age. His hair is white with age, though he'll tell you proudly that he's still got a full head of it even so. He'll also tell you - with just as much pride - how many scars he's gained from his ferrets over the turns, and even show them off when allowed.
Personality: Tisseen was brought up and taught along the line that *real* men can bear pain without flinching, the mark of a *real* man is how much he can put up with without complaint. It's probably little wonder, with that in mind, that he ended up in ferret-legging.
History: Tisseen was born a Trader - though his family worked in the rather less interesting business of selling leathers. He was put under a family friend who worked in ferret-legging at fifteen, and he's been in that trade ever since.
