Birthing Date: 07.28.2741
Craft: Minecraft (Sr. Apprentice) - mason
F'as's hair is brown, cut to about three inches in length, combed forward. His skin is a dark tan, with the occasional acne blemish of adolescence. F'as's eyes are blue in contrast to the rest of his dark complexion. He is not amazingly gorgeous, but he could be described as cute. He has a boyish look about him that will always remain, even as he ages. F'as cannot grow a full beard; there are patches missing, so he is always clean shaven. F'as is about 5'10" tall and 180 pounds. He is well muscled and strong from his work as a stone mason. F'as has noticeably large hands and feet, seeming to be a bit too big for the rest of his body.
F'as is incredibly talkative and sometimes lacks a bit of tact, though he is almost never purposefully rude. He is a very friendly person and will attempt to speak to almost anyone who seems lonely and tries his best to befriend any and all those who seem that they have no friends.
Still, many might describe him as not quite knowing when to stop talking. He can be annoying to those who are not used to him, though many find him to be endearing. He characteristically speaks in run-on sentences until he simply cannot speak any more, at which point he takes deep breaths and then continues as if there had been no pause, or else he finishes his thoughts as succinctly as he can before he needs to breathe.
Though he is not attracted to men, he has no problem with those men who are. F'as is submissive, eager to please, and hungry for close friendship, even so much to the point that he could find himself in a relationship - platonic for him - with another man. He is no leader, but he can follow orders precisely and completely, unwilling to give up at whatever task he has at hand until it is completed beyond mere success.

Finn was born at Eastern Hold and grew up there. His parents were fairly well off, his father a Harper, and his mother a cook. His childhood was unremarkable, and he suffered no particular hardship and was raised with open-minded but wholesome values along with his younger brother and sister. At 12, he apprenticed to the master stone mason at the Hold. Though his father was mildly disappointed that Finn did not follow him into the Harper's trade, his attempts to train Finn's ear musically were largely unsuccessful. It seemed that the boy was simply tone deaf. Finn's brother, Illeam, however, would apprentice to their father four years later.
During his time under the master's tutelage, Finn made his fair share of friends and inevitable enemies who could not bear to listen to him ramble, and he progressed fairly easily as he seemed to have a knack for fitting stones together as a puzzle -- or making them fit with the proper tools if their shapes were not quite right -- and his frame and body type lent well to his muscular development. His master simply would not tolerate his long-windedness and made it a standing order that Finn would speak only when spoken to. If not for his incredible ability to perform the trade, he might have dropped him as an apprentice all together.
At 15, Finn was Searched by riders from Eastern Weyr. He never thought he would have the opportunity to become a dragonrider, and it never even occurred to him to hope for it. The bluerider and dragon that searched him seemed to be certain that he would Impress and asked him to come back with them to the Weyr, though the rider wondered if he might regret it after Finn talked his ear off the whole ride back with nothing but the black of between for a pause.
Finn has enjoyed the challenge of Candidacy, having no trouble with the physical aspect, and if he did not make it as a rider, there was always his craft to fall back on. Even weyrs needed new stables, new walkways, and other structures built from time to time, after all. He spent his 16th namingday shortly thereafter at Eastern Weyr and has been standing there since.
