A fairly rugged and very plain looking young man typically wearing homespun clothing. He typically appears to be a little frayed, as if he actively seeks out blackberry bushes to navigate or stables to tend to. He is rarely seen without a fieldwork satchel and a simple yet well carved staff with a stylized hooked beak design on one end. At his belt is a horn handled knife, commonly seen on the belts of shepherds.
