Name Pronounced: Sell Far
Appearance: Selaefer is 6’1” and about 240 pounds. He's nicely built, soft muscular build. His leg muscles are very strong. He has sandy brown hair that he keeps cut marine short. His eyes are a dark brown. They have a "I'm better then you" look. His skin is fair. He has a scar that is on his forearm which he tries to cover up with a tattoo of a dragon flying. He received the scar in a knife fight before he impressed. He has a second scar on his right lower chest muscle by where his arm bends at the shoulder.
Personality: He has a semi-short temper. When he's mad, he goes elsewhere to take his anger out. Rather than yelling and screaming at what angers him he would much rather leave and cool down then return and talk about what was wrong later when he has a cool and clear head. His parents drilled in him to respect and never hit women and children. He doesn't have many friends, and he is very slow to trust. His closest friends know his soft spot is women and children. He's surprisingly gentle with them. Selaefer also loves to drink wine and can on many occasions get a bit carried away when drinking it. When he is drunk he is quite loveable and open to suggestion, and he has woken up the next morning with quite a few other males and females that he didn’t remember going to bed with the night before. Due to this Selaefer tends to let others think that he has a problem remembering things though he has a wonderful memory. And he is quite the romantic.
History: Selaefer grew up in Ista Hold. Both his parents were seacrafters. Selaefer is the second oldest of five siblings. He and his siblings were fostered until age 10 when he decided to follow his parents. He and his older brother Daron became apprentices at the age of 12. Sometime during this time, Selaefer started to change slowly. He thought himself better than just a sea crafter. He was starting to have troubles with his instructors.
