Character type: Holder
Appearance: Olyver has short light brown hair that barely touches his ears. His eyes are big and brown, sparkling with anticipation for his wife's - Wyllo's - new baby. He is a nicely built 6'4", with well built up muscles from working in the fields so long. He tends toward loose clothing, prefering that, at the end of the day, his clothes do not clinng like a second skin.
Personality: Olyver is very bubbly, unlike his wife. He likes to crack jokes and sing loudly while working, sometimes to the slight annoyance of others. He is loud, very boyish, and pulls pranks with the best of the weyrbrats. All of this makes his brother, J'ran, and his wife not worry one bit about his abilities as a father. He'll be wonderful. He will also have quiet moments, while picturing something to draw at home, for Wyllo to bind into her book of his pictures.
History: Olyver had an extremely uneventful childhood. He was simply being raised by his father to be a cotholder. That was that. His father expected him to marry a cotholder's daughter and live a simple life near where his father lived.
Information about Olyver's pets
Pet Name: Darkina
Pet Type: runner beast
Appearance: A black runner with white socks and a white snip. She is tall, 17 hands, so that she is much better as a riding beast than the pack animal she was used for on the trip to Arolos.
Personality: She is motherly. What else would she be, with the new foal? She never nips at anyone, even without a foal. Who couldn't love this runner? A lot of people, surprisingly. At the auction where Olyver bought her, no one had bid on her, and the day was almost over. She was saved from being meat by a candlemark.
Second Pet Name: Krinno
Pet Type: runner beast
Appearance: Krinno is a small, reddish brown runner with a white sock on his left forefoot, and a cream star.
Personality: Krin is not to shy, not to open.He may not nip, but he doesn't stay way in the back of his stall, either. He satys in the middle, partially behind his mom, and watches everyone go past.
