Outward Appearance

By his own reckoning, both the most skilled scop and most handsome man in the Mark. Seaxa, as he prefers to be called, is a young man of twenty-five, standing at 6'4" with the build of a practiced warrior, two scars upon the right side of his brow as proof of his experience. Both his cloaks and tunics are embroidered with horse-heads, wolf-heads, and intricate knotwork. His golden hair and beard are braided into fine plaits decorated with silver beads and a treasure necklace of colorful beads and small trinkets is hung about his neck. In the traditional style of the scops of Rohan, he sings his own praises in a powerful voice, whose accent marks his origins in the Eastfold.
