Name Pronounced: KOH - duh
Appearance: Height: 5'8"
Personality: Kodah is a very traditional man, a family man. He believes that every man's role is to serve his family first, then his community, whether weyr, hold, or hall, with all his heart in order to serve the greater community of Pern.
History: Kodah was born the youngest child of four, three boys and one girl. Though his father loved each of his children, he had a special place in his heart for his youngest boy, as he was born to him in his old age. He doted on the boy, but he never became lax in expecting Kodah or any of his children to show the proper respect to his elders, especially his parents and those with rank. Kodah's father was a Guard Captain for High Reaches Weyr until his 50th year, when he retired, and Kodah was born the year after.
Information about Kodah's pets
Pet Name: Sniffit
Pet Type: Brown Wher
Appearance: Sniffit is stocky and heavy, wider than tall. He is just barely three and three quarter feet at the shoulder, and his hide is deep, rich brown - nearly black, though about his muzzle, paws, and his underbelly, there is something of a reddish tint, almost as though he were lying face down in rusty water. His tail is short, and his snout is blunt.
Personality: Sniffit is smarter than most people give him credit for. He is simply stubborn. He rarely responds to any verbal cues from any human other than Kodah. To him, he responds without hesitation. He is so deeply enamored of Kodah that he wants above all else to please him. As for anyone else? Burn 'em. He has no interest in obeying them. He is fiercely loyal, and he picks up on loyalty from Kodah, as well. Still, there are those, who, if he trusts enough (based on the amount of trust afforded them by Kodah), he would guard as fiercely as he would his own. Part of this eagerness to please and loyalty includes a strong work ethic, and so long as he and Kodah are on duty, he does his work as meticulously as one with the mind of a wher can manage.
