Race: Human, Svefra
Gender: Male
Age: 20
Birth Date: 499 AV, 8th day of Summer.
Birthplace: Somewhere in the Suvan Sea.
Starting City: Syliras

 
Physical Description
Standing at just below six feet tall, Lutro isn't a particularly large young man. He has the lean frame of someone used to physical labour, with a scattering of odd scars and blemishes on his arms and legs. Lutro's hair is untidy and long, usually tied in thick dreads behind his head. His eyes are strikingly blue, a sign of his devotion to the God of the Sea, Laviku.

Lutro dresses extravagantly when he can. Subtle not being a word in his lexicon, he will wear layers of colourful fabrics during winter and as few clothes as possible during summer, showing off his tattoos with pride. He wears a number of brass rings and bracelets, which he regularly adds to with discoveries and plunders.

A number of tattoos adorn Lutro's body, including:

- Seal, left shoulder.
- Turtle, upper back.
- Orca, right calf.

These represent specific Tavan, ocean creatures Lutro and his pod befriended in his years at sea.

- Crashing bue wave, chest

This is Lutro's pod tattoo, to show he is part of the Seafoam family.

- Swirling blue gnosis, variable (often ribcage or arms)

This is Oceanus, the Mark of Laviku. It shows Lutro's devotion to the Sea Father and grants him many sea faring talents and powers.
 
Character Concept
Lutro is a deeply passionate young man, equal parts cocky and confident. He's quick to anger and loves to voice his opinions, whatever trouble that brings. Like many Svefra, Lutro is a devout follower and Laviku and takes great pride in his religion and in his people. This brings a deep love and a fierce loyalty for his friends and family along with distrust for outsiders - i.e. anyone not devoted to the All Father.
That being said, Lutro is at ease in social settings. A Svefra upbringing has accustomed him to storytelling and he has a love of all kinds; music, poetry, dance and everything inbetween.

Lutro has a very strong sense of right and wrong. In his mind things are exactly as they are, there's no room for grey areas. While this sense of morality doesn't always line up with common law, Lutro sticks to it out of an ingrained sense of pride and duty. There are always exceptions to the rule and Lutro has a deep streak of hypocrisy in him: he can do no evil, but others have to be perfect saints.

If pushed - especially if alcohol is involved - Lutro can be quite aggressive and has been known to pick fights with people twice his size. His pride means he always has an excuse, whether they offended the All Father or he was coming to the aid of a friend.
 
Character History
Lutro was born on the sea. His upbringing was quick and tough: from an early age he was taught how to fish, how to tie knots and how to sail. Proving adept at the spear, some of his favourite childhood memories involve fishing with the older boys and girls, sailing back to the pod clutching his new biggest catch. Other highlights of his youth include sitting around beach campfires deep into the night, listening to older men and women from his pod and others recite epic stories, of leviathans and sea serpents, of Gods and of conquest. The two things little Lutro wanted more than anything were to hunt a sea monster and, most of all, to one day meet Laviku, the All Father.

The Seafoam pod are a relatively small pod, so when Lutro was growing up they were extremely close knit. However, his father was a charismatic man and many looked up to him almost as much as the Lia. When he left to start a new pod with another woman, many others followed him. This shook up the pod's dynamic. Lutro's biological mother was especially shaken up by this schism in the pod, but Lutro was too young to notice at the time. Because of this, his relationship with his own mother is strained and he sees the pod's Lia as a closer parent figure.

Many of the ones who followed Lutro's father were young men, eager to prove themselves in the great wide sea. Lutro stayed behind with his mother, but a small part of him wishes he could have followed his cousins back then. As he grew, his small pod grew smaller and smaller. When he was 18 the pod's Lia - already an older woman when he was born - died and Lutro's mother was the most suitable candidate. So distraught by the passing of the much loved Lia and feeling resentment for his mother, Lutro took a single man boat and sailed off, leaving the pod and his Tavan behind.

Luto is deeply ashamed by this act of betrayal, but he refuses to address these feelings, instead focussing on his own 'enjoyment of life'. He often meets up with other Svefra on the waves, but has not joined a new pod, telling himself he is waiting for his father to join. The truth is, his father's pod hasn't been heard from in years and Lutro is struggling to get by. After a year by himself, he drifts from city to city, filling his time with drunken arguments in dank taverns and meaningless sex.

Perhaps Lutro is destined for greatness, but it will take a great event to steer him onto the right track.

Lutro Seafoam is currently stationed in Syliras, making just enough to survive by selling seafood at the market. He lives just off the coast on his castinor, splitting his time between the sea and cheap inns in the city. Not wanting to brave the wilderness by himself, he swallows his pride and travels between each lodging via guarded carriage - one of the reasons his income is so meagre.
