Character type: Candidate
Appearance: Falom is about 5'6 and is pretty slim for his height. He has hair that can remind one of birch-bark: pale, pale blonde, almost silver, hair with strands of brown and black mixed in here and there. He also has a dark, rich complexion that brings out the lightness of his hair. He isn't very muscular, as his craft requires little or no strength. His eyes are like twin emeralds, though they are often cast in shadow, almost as if he is ashamed of their almost feminine look.
Personality: He is a sturdy young lad, but has a good sense of humor. He enjoys seeing others smile, though he himself does so rarely. For some reason he is _always_ suspicious of homosexuals and bisexuals; he has been known to befriend one or two, but it is extremely rare. His view is that it's just not natural. Poor little Falom... He's missed out on quite a few good friendships because of these views!
History: Falom isn't quite sure about his history. He was knocked over the head at about age 9 after being thrown from a runner, and he hasn't been able to recall anything before then. An aged man and woman claimed him as their son, but he was always suspicious at how the two of them could be so old and still have a child. He never voiced his suspicions, and he has lived with it ever since.
Falom is a candidate. His colour preference is Brown or blue. (To him, greens are for the girls and bronzes are too important.)
