The holt is fairly thriving, but we're always looking for new members! keeping with my little schedule, here's the monthly featured Adoptable! Name: Brownbark Gender: Male Character's age: 600+ Soulname: (unknown, possibly unrecognized) Tribe: Wolf Folk Tribal Position: Tanner, leatherworker Appearance: Tan skinned and angular, with brown hair that is straight and cut to his neck, very handsome but in a somewhat unapproachable way, with a well-kept beard, green eyes. Body Build: lean, thin, but clearly quick on his feet Usually Seen Wearing: normally green and brown shaded fashionable leathers, often with leggings and a long-sleeved shirt under a looser long tunic, belts, and sometimes a scarf or cloak. Almost always wears a full outfit, unless it’s just blistering out. Weapon preference: he is truly dangerous with a short spear, and has a stolen Troll-forged item which is effectively a naginata – a short spear handle with a longish knife blade at the end. He rarely uses this, but if he wants to show off, he will appear with it. Magic: beyond slightly-better than average sending, none that he’s ever shown. Family: (to be decided) Personality: Practical, but also more caring than his darkly handsome face might betray. He cares deeply for his tribe, and wants to keep them safe at any cost – and for him, that means producing leathers and protective gear to keep them from harm individually. Like his Sea elf parallel, he is a perfectionist and will be willing to take on difficult tasks with a firm confidence. Unlike her, however, he prefers to keep his works in more subdued color schemes – if someone wants to bring him dyes, he’ll work with them but he doesn’t seek them out. His skill is in crafting fine leather protective gear out of hides, not bringing attention to everything under the moons. Likes: high places, large hides to work on, insect sounds Dislikes: carelessness, behaviors that act in opposition to the tribe’s needs, losing tribemates Skills: skinning, cleaning, and curing hides into any number of leather styles; tanning and working with heavy leather as well as supple; hunting with spear; climbing (trees mostly); judging sizes/distances History: took up the mantle of tanner from (whoever it might have been) and enjoys concentrating on the role of clothing provider. He is not jealous or angry if someone chooses a sea-folk style or uses woven goods in addition to his leathers, and can complement theirs easily with his own wares. Discovered that Ridge was in a sullen, distant mood for far too long, and decided to help him come out of that depression as well as give him some practical skill. The act of cleaning and tanning a hide offered a calm and quiet way to get conversations going and to allow Ridge to progress through his sadness. He isn’t sure whether Ridge will ever be the sole provider of leather goods to the Holt, but he figures that there may come a day when he is not able to do so. Might as well train someone to be able to do it! Any Other Information: -- All info is temporary until approved, and image contains a ‘bug’ that may or may not be a preserver. Wolf Friend: High Hop, female, small in size but very energetic and has been known to join Brownbark in the tree tops! She is a low-ranked wolf because of her size, but he prefers her by his side rather than to ride.
