Character type: Other
Appearance: Appearance-wise, Travis isn't all that memorable. He is a small child with a tiny frame that is so far devoid of any distinguishing features. He is only ten though, as he constantly reminds people. In that regard he looks more like his mother's child than his father's. However it is there that most similarities end. A deep rich tan skin, a little plump with babyfat but smooth like his mother's. Brown eyes and pale blond hair, which is short and feathery.
Personality: There is a sense of defensiveness from Travis. That is quite obvious when anyone tries to question Travis. Given his sharp sense of possessiveness about things he said, Travis digs himself into the position of being questioned more often than not. It hurts him emotionally each time, and it shakes his already uncertain confidence each time. It is a stress that has him getting sick or hurt more often than the rest of his family. That's part of the reason for his defensiveness, it is the only thing protecting his shaky self-esteem. It doesn't always work, true he grasps for any reasonable excuse that he knows of. But there are times other people are more believeable than himself. Which makes him miserable. Only when Travis is suffering, Travis' sense of vengeance insists that the other people will be miserable as well.

Information about Travis's pets
Pet Name: Affoly (Folly)
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Folly is a mid-ranged green in size. Though she is definitely not the most agile creature. True she is fast in the air. But she also is lopsided. Not just in markings. Her left wingtip is a little further forward than the back. Big surprise that she's awkward in the air. Even her top jaw is shorter than it should be on one side...though that came from running into a corner and breaking a few bones. Her sea green color has bright sheen to it. Her muscles are highlights by a dark seaweed green.
Personality: Folly often misjudges her course. If she wasn't lopsided she'd be just fine but she forgets to compensate. That doesn't stop her much, she's finally learned how to run into things without hurting herself too much. The only problem is that she is very demanding...with an ego. When she wants something she assumes she'll get it and she just tries to grab it. Though more often than not she misses without anyone having to move what she wants. Though once she didn't run into a poor cooks face when she went into a spin instead of diving. The cook is now blind in one eye... And Folly isn't allowed anywhere near people with food or shiny things. ...Like that would stop her...
