Character Number: 1
Where they are from: Smallhold near Antaris
Sexuality: Bisexual, slightly prefers males
Average height, average build, medium brown hair. From a distance, Novosel looks very average. A closer inspection, however, reveals pleasant features and startling blue eyes of a shade some might call 'baby blue'. His form carries the muscle associated with somebody who has spent much of his life doing physical labor. His complexion is tanned, his skin not much lighter than his hair. He also moves very freely, as if ill-accustomed to crowds or confined spaces.
His voice is very pleasant, enough to make some wonder why he did not end up a Harper, especially when he sings. A thin scar runs from his right arm down his shoulder, looking to be the result of a blade of some sort.
On the surface, Novosel appears...less than smart. In communication, he is laconic, seldom using any more words than necessary and simple words at that. That combines with his farmer's son background to make some people dismiss him as a mere manual worker. As it happens, he is, while not massively intelligent, smarter than he appears.
He is a practically-minded man, who seldom dresses up and tends to eschew any kind of frippery. He shops from a list and goes to parties only if somebody drags him. Romance, too, is not something he is very good at, and should he have a boyfriend or girlfriend, he is likely to express his feelings in direct manners. Don't expect flowers or candy from this one. Strongly monogamous, he tends to seek long-term relationships and is rendered a little uncomfortable by the idea of flights. He is likely to try and push for a closed flight with his current partner, if he can, and may well have 'dragon of the opposite gender' as a qualification. He is, however, a good friend to have, being loyal and hard working.
Preferring physical labor over mental, which again might make him seem less than smart, he would always rather be outdoors than in. He would rather walk or ride a runner than drive or ride in a vehicle, and is likely to choose the route that requires the most, rather than the least, physical effort. He tends to expect his friends to do the same, and has a dislike of physically lazy people, whilst preferring to avoid mental effort. Especially math. Nov hates math.

Easily confused, forgetful, clingy, short attention span, collector of shiny objects.
Hatched at Silence Weyr from a wild clutch found by Muya.
Novosel is the son of a farmer. One of three sons of a farmer, in fact, and the youngest. His family was happy, with the household most definitely run by his mother, Sella. His father, a quiet and hardworking non-entity was less of an influence on his life than her. However, he knew he would not inherit the farm, and it was too small to split.
He was not an academic and joining a craft seemed to him to be a bad idea. Thus, he knew his future was likely to be that of a laborer. He saw only one obvious way out, and that was to look into joining the military. However, the first guild he went to told him he was, at fifteen, already too old. His parents should have sent him as a child.
His father would not hear of him leaving just to find work, but then a dragonrider showed up. He could not take his eyes off the teal-colored beast, and its rider had a surprise...and a solution. He was rider material and should come to the Weyr. Which he agreed to, knowing it was a dangerous life he was signing up for.
