PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION

Stoop shouldered, sun browned and laugh and squint-lines around his eyes Ceril is a busy man. His hands are knotted with work and there's a faint pale tracery of scars across the backs of his hands from years of turning those hands to different tasks as needed. He's got the ropy, wiry muscle of a man who has worked hard from boyhood on. He has smile lines around his mouth that show that he does know how to smile, how to laugh, though in the past turn or more it's been rare indeed to find things to rejoice in. He is hard of hearing, something that he's tried to conceal; though that's the reason for a faint frown that he wears when dealing with people.

His clothes are neat, well mended but show signs of wear and tear. He has little time to do more than the basics, and his hair is usually pulled back in a tidy queue to keep it out of the way.
   
PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY DESCRIPTION Busy. He's got a constant running list of things to do in his head and it gives him a rather abstracted air. He's good natured enough, but busy so that has given him the reputation of someone who is scant on the pleasantries. He knows how to make things work, he knows how to organize and how to get the best out of what he has. And in a better time and place he would delegate but too many times there's just no one else to take care of it, or it takes longer to explain than to DO it. "Relax" is not in his vocabulary. There's time enough to relax later, after everything important is taken care of. He can be impatient with those who are trying to evade work. The one driving factor right now is to turn the camp into something permanent, to erase the word 'camp' entirely would be ideal.

He was widowed in the Disasters that destroyed his old home at Ista Seahold, and lost his wife Alana and one of his daughters. He met and married Wynna, a widow with two young children of her own.
HOBBIES When there was the leisure time for it, he indulged in scrimshaw and woodcarving.
 
BACKGROUND INFORMATION
PLACE OF BIRTH Ista Seahold
MOTHER’S NAME Ana
MOTHER’S RANK Master Fisherman/Sailor
FATHER’S NAME Ceyn (Deceased)
FATHER’S RANK Master Fisherman/Sailor
SIBLINGS
SHORT HISTORY The son of a sailor and the grandson of the seahold steward, Ceril worked his way up in Ista Seahold under his grandfathers watchful eye. After Ceyn's death at sea Ana focused on her young son with the help of her father. She did not want her son following in his fathers footsteps, and her father apparently agreed, taking a strong interest in his grandson and providing the male role model and guidance a young boy needed. By the time he was in his late teens he was all but performing the duties of Steward, his grandfather by then crippled with arthritis. It seemed only natural then when old Carlis passed that Ceril continued on. There was no one else so readily prepared for the job and the Seaholder had no complaints with the young mans performance.

He and Alana married when he was twenty, producing four children in short order. The oldest boy followed after his own grandfather's path, taking to sea. The second child, a girl died a few years after she was born, and the younger two, Cianna and Ronin were the apple (or is that redfruit) of their fathers eye.

 Life could not have been any more ideal, when things were quite suddenly turned upside down. Ceril saw his home decimated, and stepped into the void where he could, gathering up the remainder of his people and helping to organize the evacuation. Moving to the souther continent seemed a temporary thing at first, but over the course of several months he has found that he must accept- and get his people to accept- a certain permanence. His goal now is to see New Ista Camp become simply New Ista; an autonomous, independant and Profitable Hold on its own.
