Nahuel is small and wiry, he'll never grow taller than his five foot seven, and is slim as well. But do not doubt the strength behind his smallness. He is quick, agile, and flexible. He moves with a noticeable grace, almost feline in character. His skin is dark, naturally olive toned and a little tanned by the sun. His hair is raven black, thick and slightly wavy. Its about shoulder length but ofter held back in a short runner tail. His pale green eyes, reminiscent of a feline's, are striking against his raptorial features. He is not a particularly handsome man, though his sensuous lips are the envy of many women, but he seems to have a sort of charisma about him. He favors loose fitting clothes after the manner of a sailor in the colors of black and green and silver jewelry of the ornate variety if he can afford it. He has three piercings in his right ear and one in his left.

Nahuel, at first glance, is grouchy. He always seems to be frowning. Actually, in some part, that's just he natural face, but he really is a moody guy. He tends to expect the worst to happen, and he doesn't have a very high opinion of himself either. he rarely laughs, and though his smiles are more frequent, they are usually brief. The only thing that really brings him peace is music. Though he has had little formal training, he is a very talented musician, with voice, pipes, and even gitar. He is very intelligent and enjoys reading, but he also enjoys the outdoors, especially the sea.
Nahuel does not seek out human contact, in fact, he seems to avoid it as much as possible, and he you approach him, it will be a rare person who get him to speak more than a few words. But despite his solitary nature, he is really a gentle caring man, with a deep ability to sympathize with the minds, problems and feelings of others. He's a good reader of people, and perhaps what makes him so cynical is that so many people, he feels, are corrupt. But people who are truly kind and good can touch his heart and become his friend. They will find that he is loyal unto death, honest and honorable. His word is truly his bond. But even his friends can get the wrong end of his temper occasionally. He is easily frustrated and also can be blunt and overly critical of others. He would never say he is looking for a romantic attachment, in fact, he fears it. He fears being that beholden to someone, because once someone really has his heart, they have it for good.
\\ History //
In a time of war, the less scrupulous often find there is a profit to be made. Such was Nahuel's father Jahuel. He was a smuggler, and he a group of others ran ships out of an abandoned Seahold on the Northeast coast of the northern Continent. His mother was nominally Jahuel's wife, but who is to say how faithful either of them really were. Nahuel's childhood was a difficult one. There were many children, and not always enough food. The older children often hunted or fished for the family, but the little ones had to fight for the scraps. Nahuel was a bright child, and he picked up as much knowledge as he could, though they had no true harper of their own.
When he was five turns of age, he first began to really notice music. He learned to play the reed pipes and by the age of seven, he was better than anyone in the smugglers hold. He also was fairly self-sufficient, not only feeding himself by hunting and fishing, but by thieving from the oft drunk occupants. He didn't see anything wrong with it at the time. When he was ten turns old, he was deemed old enough to go with the ships, first as a sort of cabin-boy on his father's ships. As he grew tougher, stronger and more trustworthy, he was given more difficult jobs and his father began to rely on him. They might have really grown close but for a chance event when he was fourteen. Sailing is a dangerous life at the best of times, and when caught in a spring squall, it is deadly.
Their ships was dashed against the rocks, and Nahuel, with the timely help of shipfish, was washed to shore, barely alive. It was a lucky chance that brought a rider from Perpetua there that day, and luckily for Nahuel, his dragon spotted the boy and brought him back to the weyr for Healing. After a few weeks, he was as good as new, but for a few scars. He asked to stay at the weyr, begging to be apprenticed to the harpers, despite him being a bit old. After hearing him play and sing, they happily agreed. He had a bit of catch up to do, having never had harper lessons, but he's a bright lad, so after five turns, he's all caught up and well on his way to his journeyman's knots in a Turn or so. But on top of that good fortune, he was also Searched as a Candidate. Nahuel had never considered dragonriding before, but he admits that the dragons themselves are fascinating and honorable creatures, and perhaps someday he might be Weyrharper. So, Nahuel is as content as he has ever been, working on his craft and hopefully awaiting his lifemate.
