Name Pronounced: val-pan
Appearance: Valpan stands 6’ tall. He might still grow a few more inches but who knows. He has medium brown hair that almost reaches his shoulders but doesn’t. It has a slight curl at the very bottom and it waves slightly everywhere else since he is constantly pushing it out of his face and it has become a habit when he is thinking. He has hazel eyes are always looking around. His face is angled and comes smoothly down to a strong chin. He has tan skin which gets a little darker when he is outside for a long period of time. He isn’t buff but he isn’t weak. He is built for the life of a runner herder. He does have a scar on his left eye brow from being knocked down by a runner and hitting his head on a rock.
Personality: Valpan is a quiet person. He observes first then talks. He is capable of observing a large amount of things going on and can act as quickly as needed. He is very protective of the herds he is put to guard and won’t leave that herd until relieved by someone else. He is good at riding and is good at reading runners. He would rather be around animals that people. Most who meet him think he is either aloof or shy. He is neither. He does talk but not unless it is worth his while. Being hold bred makes him shy away from the liberal Weyr actions. When he does open up he is quite funny. He doesn’t adjust well to new places well but once there he takes to it and will guard it with his life. He does like to have a few very good friends and they usually know he will be there for them.
