Appearance
A man of average height and whipcord build beneath his layers of leathers and furs, Talyson rarely stands out in a crowd. His dark hair is usually wind-tousled and pulled back from his face with a leather cord, and his skin is a light shade of brown except for where the snowglare has darkened his face. Pale eyes, a grey-green light as glacial sea ice, are his only truly striking feature, but they’re often hidden behind snow goggles when out in the elements.

He moves with a light step and economy of motion, quick and confident when outdoors, no gesture wasted or exaggerated. Indoors is another matter; Tally has an almost awkward hesitancy inside with his protective layers stripped away, and has a tendency to fidget and seek something to do with his hands without the usual thick gloves to still their movement.

He has two broad scars over his right ribs from an ursur’s claws.

Personality
Self-reliant | Tenacious | Trustworthy | Impatient | Prideful | Tactless

Tal spends most of his time with no one to talk to but his dogs and his dragon, and he doesn’t try to hide that he likes them more than he likes most of his fellow humans. He’s uncomfortable in crowds, often anxious and on edge in large groups of people, but he still gets lonely and craves companionship and the sound of other people’s voicese after a while on the trail. He’s blunt and wears his heart on his sleeve, whether he’s happy to see someone or doesn’t like them, but that honesty serves him in good stead as a courier. His reputation for trustworthiness has been hard-earned, and he’ll go to great lengths to keep his promises and ensure that his family name isn’t tarnished. He can be as tenacious as his dogs once he’s decided on a course of action, a trait that has helped him survive the dangers of the Tundra slightly more often than it’s led him into the jaws of trouble in the past.

Used to having no one else around to rely on, Tal is accustomed to fending for himself and his dogs. He’s independent and quick to make decisions in a crisis, but he has trouble functioning as part of a team with other humans. His survival so far is a point of pride for him, and he doesn’t always listen to those older and wiser than him until they do something to earn his respect. He likes to keep moving, an anxious impulse that he’s missing something - late for something, forgetting something - driving him to be constantly in motion. If he’s not on the trail he’s pacing, tapping his fingers, or fidgeting, especially indoors. He doesn’t like being inside, having moderate claustrophobia, and would much rather be outdoors in all but the coldest days of Deepfrost.

His curiosity used to be focused on the Sea of Glass and his personal search for some sign of the old Port ruins or ice-locked ships from his family’s legends, but the opening of the Portals has widened that interest to include the world beyond Halo, as well. So far, loyalty to his family and the people that rely on his courier route have kept him from exploring further, but every season the itch grows stronger and it’s only a matter of time before he gives in.

History
The Seawrights are an old line that claims to stretch back to the days before the Eirachi’s boons, when the Sea of Glass was still unfrozen and connected to the oceans of Caido, allowing trade with the rest of the world. Once a modestly successful merchant shipping family, they sent their ships to trade pelts, amber, metal, and gems and bring back exotic southern goods.

But times changed, and the Seawrights had to change with them.

The ancient port is gone from all but legend, but the Seawrights remain traders still, and the youngest of them still sails the Sea of Glass - on a dogsled rather than a two-masted clipper, running the summer circuit of the Sea and Tundra to deliver messages and small goods to the remnants of the tribes still scattered throughout the waste, and bringing back rare furs and scrimshaw to Snowcloak to spend the winters, where he runs courier duties and assists with deliveries from Seawright’s Sundries - the family general store.

With three older sisters who alternately dote on and tease him mercilessly, Talyson spends as much time away from the family home as he can. His father was a member of the Citadel Guard who was killed in the cannibal attack in Deepfrost 310; his mother passed away less than a year later, either of a broken heart or a liver that couldn’t keep up with her coping mechanism. The siblings have remained tightly knit in their absence, with the eldest, Deirdre, taking up the running of the store and second daughter Mallory covering the books and family finances. The youngest daughter, Alexia, is also the sister Talyson is closest with, being only a year apart in age and both sharing a love of the family’s secondary vocation of dogs. Alexia breeds the family’s prized line of sled dogs in the kennels at the outskirts of Snowcloak. During Deepfrost, Tal works with the new litters to train them up and then takes a few of the most promising out on his Longheat runs with his established team to put the polish on the new pups. The best are kept for his own, while many of the rest are sold out to hunters who also brave the wilds of Halo.

Apprenticed to his aunt, Tal learned the route his family had traveled for generations, as the world grew slowly but inexorably colder. An urser attack that left scars on his side and took his aunt’s legs forced her into early retirement, and Tal into making the next year’s run solo - sooner than he should have, but duty and youthful confidence led him to insist that he could do it. He went off course in a storm and took shelter at the base of a large rock outcrop on the Sea of Glass where he found an abandoned nest. Three of the eggs were cold - frozen solid - but the fourth was still warm. He took it with him, and the egg grew warmer the more he carried it until it hatched into a chubby dragon with scales the same pale greens and blues as the sea ice he found it on. He named the dragon Boreal, and she grew up with his sled dogs for family and friends, bonding with the team her companion loved. She often flies a little ways ahead of the team, seeking out the clearest path or hidden dangers around the bends of the trail and working in tandem with Tal’s lead dog, Bellatrix.

Other
Tal fights with an axe when in danger, and has used it to fend off bears, wolves, and cannibals. It also makes a handy tool for cutting ice and building shelters when on the trail.

A rough estimate of this character's damage potential is as follows:

HP: 50

Unarmed strike:5.5

Physical attack with a basic weapon/attuned shifts: 15.5

Physical attack with an upgraded weapon/attuned shifts: 25.5

Physical attack with a mastered weapon/attuned shifts: 35.5

Magical attack with basic magic/mythical shifts: 22.5

Magical attack with upgraded magic/mythical shifts: 32.5

Magical attack with mastered magic/mythical shifts: 42.5
