Character type: Crafter
Appearance: Bilun's built like an ox; at 6’4 Bilun enjoys having an advantage on others at any given time. Broad shoulders and large callused hands show that he's used to hard labor. Muscular arms and thighs are kept due to long hours of breaking in spirited runners; but his flat stomach has long since turned into a paunch with age and the easier side of life. Sparkling sea green eyes are framed by bushy brown eyebrows. Bilun's beard and long hair which is either plaited or pulled into a tail, is flecked with red highlights and now that he's reaching the other side of life with grey.
Personality: Bilun is part of an old group of men who enjoy the good life drinking, many wives and many children not always in that order. The more wives, children, runners and money one man has in his coffer is his wealth. So that would make Bilun very wealthy for he has many of all. He's quick to boasting of his wealth in either words or possesions. But you wouldnt find a fairer man in his oppinion that is. Bilun finds no day better than shouting at some blustering man of his, breaking in a good stallion, watching his stocks and doing some ledgers. All of this completed with more shouting and laughing at some poor unfortunate; after a good yeasty brew to climb into the cot of one of his three wives. In short Bilun is a good hearted man though often lead astray by his wives and sons; and has the meanest temper this side of Pern. Thank Faranth for his humor!
History: For all Bilun knows Runners are in his blood. His father, and his father before him were all to his knowledge Herders. The beasts were his life set deep into his blood. And that was what they did he and his family they bred canines to runners and brats besides. He was proud of what he had created for not far from Arolos Weyr an' Hold a days walk perhaps; was his Cothold fortyeight men strong, Sweet Meadows. The name given for the succulant, and sweet grasses that grow along the plains. Perfect for fattening up a whoolyherdbeast meant for the slaughter.
