Character type: Healer
Appearance: Verris is a giant of a man. He stands somewhere in the area of 6'5, and he's broad of shoulder and chest. An obsession with health and fitness has led to him putting aside time everyday for exercise, which has kept him nicely fit. At a slight incongruity with his build is the relative slimness of his capable looking hands. Despite his daunting size, there's nothing intimidating about him. He's got a friendly looking face. His dark brown eyes are always laughing, and his broad mouth is often turned up in a smile. He keeps his dark honey blond hair short and neatly trimmed.
Personality: Verris is a warm, friendly man, though there is a quiet sadness in his eyes. He has a healer's heart, and a healer's touch. When he sees others in pain, he wants to fix it, whether it be physical or emotional. There is a special spot in his heart for children. He'd probably do anything for the welfare of a child.
History: Weyr life is all Verris has ever known, though he's never been interested in being a rider. From a young age he set himself the goal of becoming a healer. He wanted to fix people, and there were plenty of people to fix in the weyr. If a rider wasn't in with a threadscore, there was surely someone sick or bearing battle scars from a rough night out. The bustle of such a life suited him.
