Fridmar and Finnegan
The sixteenth in the series of descriptions paints pictures of two more background characters: Agmund Fridmar, Professor of Farsi and Russian, and Finnegan, Owned by Alysse. Feel free to weigh in on the forums, if there's someone in particular you'd like to see described.

Agmund Fridmar appears to be in his forties; he stands about 6 foot 7, and weighs in at over 350 pounds of solid muscle. He has short dark hair, and eyes the color of fossilized honey. His facial features are all very angular, his face more rectangular than oval. He has rather broad shoulders and strong thick legs. His skin is a medium tan color, and is slightly worn from long days in the sun. Agmund still carries a thick Scandinavian accent, as if he had walked right out of the old world and into the new.
With his mask down Agmund has curling ram horns. His skin is far more leathery, and his dark hair reaches his shoulders. He has incredible stamina and is capable of out-drinking the best in the world, along with a high resistance to pain and toxins.
Agmund wears a hybridization of traditional and modern clothing. He always favors earth tones and greys. He tends to wear a traditional Norse styled tunic, a hand crafted leather belt cinching it to his waist, and khakis. Occasionally he trades out the khakis for leather pants and fur wrappings. His outerwear is the most impressive, as he dons a series of fur cloaks and hats.
Agmund’s personality can be described by most as abrasive and aggressive. However, he takes great pride in what he teaches, Russian, Farsi, and Home Ec, and in his students. His rough exterior is often softer for his students, whom he cares a great deal for. To his cy’ree he often acts more like a father figure, standing protectively in front of his herd, until the time when they must prove to him that they are strong and able to stand on their own. Then he will lead them and treat them as soldiers and companions.
Finnegan cy'Drake oro'Alysse
In most circumstances, Finnegan would be entirely unremarkable, and, although he’d probably never put words to it in quite that manner, he likes it that way. His primary personality drive is an insatiable curiosity, but, since he is rather bright, he learned early on that being obvious about said curiosity had a high likelihood of getting him in trouble. Thus, he likes to stay back and stay unnoticed, and learn about the world from a place of quiet observation.
Finnegan is skinny and pale, thin not so much in an underfed way as under-muscled and active enough to not go to pudge; back home, he enjoyed pick-up sports with his friends but never tried out for teams, not wanting the time commitment they required. He’s medium-height, 5’10” or so, and wears his jeans and t-shirts fitted, emphasizing his thinness. The jeans are pale, faded, usually ragged around the edges and sometimes blown out in the knees; the t-shirts are usually single-color, the color depending on his mood in the morning, and over it all, he wears a leather jacket and leather biker boots.
His hair is dark brown, wavy, and usually in need of a haircut; he has a snub nose and long-eyelashed Very Green Eyes, his only really distinguishing factor. He doesn’t smile often, but when he does, it is a wide, engaging expression that makes others want to smile along. He’s beardless, and will probably remain that way, his chin sharp and pointed without any fuzz to soften it.
The Change turns ears that were a little too big naturally and makes them sweeping, pointed things, the very tips covered in fine green scales and the rest, generally, a faint greenish tinge. His eyes shift further out to the sides of his head and get a little bit bigger; he can move either eye independent of the other. His eyebrow ridges become more prominent, and his eyebrows become thin rows of scales.
He grows a long tail, looking like nothing so much as a chameleon’s (unsurprisingly), spots and all, and with it comes a ridge of bony protrusions up his spine, also scaly.
With the Changes come an ability to blend completely into his surroundings, like a cartoon chameleon, taking on the general color and pattern of whatever surface he’s against. It isn’t true invisibility, but it does go a long way towards blending in.
Pronounced "key" or "kay-uh," cy' means "student of;" and is used as a surname to mark the step from Mother-Child relationship to Mentor-Student (considered the necessary middle stage in Ellehemaei development between Child and Adult).
oro' means "Belongs to." Because Fridmar is an Adult, he is listed by his Name, not his Mother or his long-gone Mentor.
