I just had a random thought about Teir and his appeal. It's mostly just ramblings and probalby has a lot of loopholes, but it's fun anyways.
Teir is like what would happen if you took the three (arguably) hottest males in EQ and mixed them up. That being rayek, cutter, and strongbow. He's got the gorgeous long black hair and dark skin of Rayek, the wild innocence, unthinking grace, and muscles of cutter, and the "quiet silent type" demeanor of Strongbow. For us ladies who don't like the ladies-men types (ala Skywise), how can that not be an alluring combination?
(Or maybe I just like him because he reminds me of my husband. ^_^)
