Physical Traits: Odan the Scribe is a man, aged 25-28, but has retained many of his boyish charms. His face is handsome and daring, his eyes show no fear in them. They are pools of green, hazel, flashes of blue, and at times pitch black. His body is fairly muscular, yet lithe and solid evincing power and passion; his hair, long, black full, tied together with a crystal pin representing a riding mistress. Men trust him, liking his manly qualities, and will follow him into battle, but they would not bring him home to meet their sister. Women have been known to be drawn to his masculine magnetism. However, Odan does not make promises to women or others that he cannot keep. His sexual proclivity is legendary, yet he has morality, and his great affection for women is his ambiguousness.
