Name Pronounced: (RAWSK)
Appearance: Rosk has a strong jaw, a nose half way between buttonlike and hawkish, and strikingly electric blue eyes. His skin is naturally of a light tone, but it is tanned by the sun. Similarly, his hair is naturally a sandy blond, but it is sun bleached. He is of middling height and likely not full grown, only about five feet, eight inches. His body is well toned and muscled by ample field work, and his hands are rough and calloused by the same. Most would call him quite handsome, and he has grown well into his frame from the boyish cuteness of his early childhood.
Personality: Rosk is a simple boy. He is not unintelligent by any means, but he has had little use for academic learning thus far in his life. He is unlettered but clever. He has a mind for practical solutions but sticks to what he knows, keeping quiet and reserved when out of his element and quiet and purposeful when in it. He is quick to listen and slow to speak, and having spent much of his time in the field with his flock and working dogs, he often prefers the communication of physical touch or other body language to the spoken word.
History: Rosk was born and raised in a small cothold owned by his family and beholden to the larger, nearby Arolos Hold. He grew up tending sheep and training dogs to tend sheep, like his father before him, and his father before him. His hold's tithe was and is made up entirely of wool, mutton, and cheese, and his life made up primarily of producing them. His family was large, with four brothers and three sisters, and many aunts, uncles, and cousins from the cluster of neighboring cots, and he never lacked for companionship or for solitude when he needed it, herding the sheep about in the fields between Falls and to the stables when Thread came. His oldest brothers learned the keeping of ledgers from his father, and one went to train with the beastcrafters before returning a journeyman some Turns later. It was always a simple life, until one day, at a Gather, a ride adragonback ended with finding out that he, too, could Impress.
