Character type: Staff
Appearance: Unfortunetly for Olstre, he's not a handsome man. His hair tends towards the greasy, his eyes are closer to mud-coloured than chocolate coloured, and while there's nothing wrong with his body as such, it really isn't anything special. And besides that, someone who helps care for animals doesn't tend to have the nicest of clothing. It's not so much that there's a lot *wrong* with Olstre - more that there's nothing that stands out as more than "okay"
Personality: Olstre is a quiet man, who had small ambitions. Work For Desern until he had enough money to buy land of his own, and then persuade Besa to marry him, and live happily ever after.
History: Olstre has a history remarkably similar to the man he is so jealous of. Like Hiwayn, he was among the younger sons in a large cotholder family. Unlike Hiwayn though, Olstre went to the honest path, and went to work for Bela's father. Time gained him money, and a crush on his employer's pretty daughter. He would wait until he had enough money to offer her a cothold before he began courting her - yes, that would be best.
