Description

Of average height and build for his age, this young man's wide toothy grin and sparkling grey eyes likely spell trouble for all he meets. He is all quick movement and afterthought, strong limbs able to carry him higher and faster perhaps than others in his age group. His features aren't quite ruggedly handsome, which may very well come with age, sporting a pair of cupid's bow lips and thin expressive brows. The bridge of his nose is slender but flares out gradually towards the tip, while his chin is noticeably cleft. Waves of dark blonde hair curls to his shoulders, sometimes pulled back, other times not.

Valerian wears attire that is both sturdy and comfortable for someone as active as he is, and always in natural shades. A tunic, trousers, belt, boots and sometimes a vest can be found amongst his attire. For colder weather, a jacket. He wears a knot of an apprentice Starcrafter and resident of Xanadu Weyr.


History

Just another child born as a result of a flight, Valerian was fostered immediately after his birth, and was named by the childless couple that eagerly took him in. Farmers Riena and Navlyn of Telgar Hold were not told who their fosterling's parents were and as the turns passed their initial curiosity fell away as they strongly bonded with the infant they later came to call son. Ignorant of his origins, Valerian grew up happy and healthy, his precociousness an endless source of joy for his adoptive parents, and laughter was an intrical part of their daily lives. Vale rarely got into very serious trouble, but when he did it was handled with the utmost care and affection, and never once in his childhood did he ever feel the punishment did not fit the crime. At a very early age, Valerian became entranced by the night sky. He and his father would spend hours after dusk, when weather permitted, just looking up at the sky and making up stories about the seemingly magical creatures the star formed. It was no wonder then when he came of age, that he was taken as an apprentice of the Starcraft, and began training. A quick learner, he devoured everything about the craft that he was allowed, and even some that he wasn't. An instigator, Vale sometimes convinced some of his fellow apprentices to sneak off in the dead of night to get into the types of places that were forbidden. Even if it meant scaling walls, crawling through windows, or picking a lock. One time he'd taken apart a particularly complicated and expensive telescope of a Master, just to see if he could put it back together again. The man never did find out who did it. While Valerian made sure he had fun, he still took his studies very seriously, and during lessons he never forgot to pay attention. With puberty, came rebellion, and with rebellion came risk taking. He'd challenge other apprentices to races over perilous terrain that included leaps, dizzying heights, and tests of endurance that made some of those in the Starcraft grayer every day. For every scrape, bruise, break and concussion Valerian got, he was always grinning ear to ear, laughing, or shrugging as he became bolder in his daring feats and even the harshest of punishments didn't seem to quell his thirst for a thrill. Some of his teachers may have been pulling their hair out by the time they shuttled him off to Xanadu Weyr in the summer of his fourteenth turn, but regardless, he would be missed.
