Character type: Candidate
Appearance: Nerric is rather short for a man, standing only 5'7 . A thin, muscular body gives him a somewhat athletic look. Dark features keep him from looking mundane. However, rather large ears frame his appealing face. A thin nose is set perfectly between almond shaped eyes of darkest brown. Wild, untamable black hair falls in a floating mass to frame his face, and cover his ears. A crooked grin is often to be found upon his girlish lips. A small, crescent shaped scar directly below the outer most corner of his right eye is all that mars his smoothly tanned skin, a remnant of a fight with an ex. Upon his right arm is a simple tattoo composed of three bands, blue green and red, and, below the bands, three red dashes. The tattoo has no meaning, and he sometimes regrets the drunken evening that resulted in it.
Personality: Fun loving and occasionally wild, Nerric enjoys life in general. The crooked grin always adorning his features is a good example of his personality. Very down to earth at times, and others up in the air. He seems to be two different people at times.
History: Born to a dolphineer he was raised by the sea. His father really wanted him to go into the craft, but it just wasn't working for him. For some reason he just couldn't swim. Wasn't swimming a big part of being a dolphin crafter? No matter how much he practiced, he just didn't seem to be getting any better. Sure, he could handle short distances, like for a total of three minutes. This really disappointed his father. After all, what could be worse then a son like him, a big disappointment to the family. However, this disappointment faded, for everyone but his father, when he discovered an amazing ability in singing. Myri, his little sister, thought it was absolutely amazing. His father thought it made him a sissy. His two brothers were tall, strong swimmers, what went wrong with him? Because he couldn't stand the constant, disapproving way his father looked at him, Nerric decided to relocate to the Harper's Hall. He trained there for four whole years. Then he decided he needed a change in pace. With the secret wish of impressing, something that would surely earn his father's respect, he found himself at Arolos Weyr.
