The Archipelago trial run
Allayad Fal Metsingy-
Although you are all (nearly) of an age, Allayad has the highest “birth rank” of any of you, with only two older brothers and one older sister. Allayead has a younger brother and sister, and possibly more on the way. Allayad loves the outdoors, adventuring, and exploring. Bright and curious, energetic and somewhat manic, his constant need for new stimulation has lead him (and them) into some truly dangerous situations. He knows the coastline around the village intimately, and could easily pilot a ship through the shoals and rocks around the harbor. He knows the wilderness area around the village very well as well. He is the finest swordsmen of the group, although his enthusiasm for sword has left him only passing with the spear, and he is not as vigilant with his shield-using as he could be. He is a capable sailor, but relies on his geographic memory more than any actual ability to navigate by instrument or chart. Because of his outgoing nature, he has become the leader of the the group. Charismatic and winning, he’s usually able to downplay the havoc they cause, and has continually gotten them out of trouble. Physical- Tall and athletic, a medium build though well-muscled. Light brown hair, dark skin, brown eyes. Personality at a glance- Friendly and very outgoing, laughing and very mischievous. Despite this, people trust him because of his charm and his family. Attitudes towards the group: Deerborn- Regards him as a peer. Although Deerborn’s more cautious nature runs against Allayad’s more outgoing and thrill-seeking nature, Allayad will defer to Deerborn if the situation is serious enough. Thomas- Hot headed and quiet at the same time, Thomas is something of a mystery to Allayad. For the most part, he loves having a fellow explorer, and someone who will challenge him. Allen- Allayad feels very protective of Allen, and he knows Deerborn does as well. However, he doesn’t feel protective enough of him to keep him excluded from the gang’s adventures. Allayad always makes sure that Allen is included in their excursions. Allayad prizes Allen’s mind very highly, and is glad that his friend is so smart, even if Allayad doesn’t always see the use in all of Allen’s knowledge. Allen is also a quick thinker, able to adjust plans on the go, and Allayad is worried that Allen may actually be a better plotter than himself. Lauren- Allayad looks up to Lauren, although gets resentful of her “responsible” act. While not overtly classist, he also tends to think of her as “the cool hick”.
