Physical Description of Persona:
Famell is well muscled and lightly tanned from turns of working amidst the dolphins on Pern. His hair is a light sandy brown and he has blue eyes. Famell stands a fair 6 feet tall.

Emotional Description of Persona:
Famell is a rather free-spirited man, never having felt the confines of being tied to one place. His love of the dolphins began young and gave him freedom that he otherwise might never have enjoyed on Pern. He's an easy man to get to know and to get along with, though he's also a tough task-master and will quickly put an apprentice, journeyman or otherwise in their place if they do anything to endanger their lives, the dolphins or anyone else for that matter. While knowing when and how to enjoy life to the fullest, Famell is also a driven man, which has gotten him where he is in life.

History of Persona:
Born in the North, Famell came to the Southern continent when the Dolphin Hall at Topaz Sea Hold was opened up to the northerners. With little of his family still alive in the North, the move was not out of the ordinary. He loved the warmth of the south and knew he would never choose to leave them.

His time at the Dolphin Hall was spent perfecting his skills and enjoying the company of the dolphins. He spends whatever time he can in the water. However, having made master that time was decreased slightly due to the need to teach the young apprentices and journeyman as they come to the Dolphin Hall.

On a personal note, Famell had a love in his life, Raynta, whom he met many turns ago. She was everything he'd ever dreamed of and they had married and had a daughter together. However, even with the ability of the dolphins to sense that something was amiss with her, the healers were not able to save her. The day he lost her was one of the hardest days of his life. Yet, it was his daughter, his friends in the hall, and most especially the dolphins who gave him a reason to keep going forward. The few turns they had shared together hold some of his greatest memories of all time. He's not really pursued anything long-term in his personal life since that time, preferring to keep his heart a bit more guarded from the hurt he'd felt at her loss.

Famell was content with his duties as a regular master of his craft, swimming with the dolphins, teaching the students, and fulfilling his duties as a dolphin healer. However, when the current Hallmaster stepped aside, the time came for a new one to be chosen. Famell's friendly, helpful spirit and his ways at teaching the young led to his fellow masters naming him to the position.

He is honored and excited to begin fulfilling his duties as Hallmaster.

During his time as Hallmaster, Famell has had some times of travel, leading to absence from the Hall.

In turn 7 he met Shilara, who had transferred from the North. The two soon found a deep attraction for each other and a little island journey led to a beautiful baby boy.

Ahimell was born month 11 day 4 of Turn 7. Famell is already proud of his young son and cannot wait to see what his future will hold.
