Distinguishing Features: Slight inflections of Illian come through in his voice occasionally, but he is otherwise accent-less. A single silver ring pierces his right earlobe.

Ferran Carbern is a tall and powerfully built man, with dark skin, dark eyes, and a shaven head. He sports a pointed beard in the Tairen style, with his top lip shaven like an Illianer. A single silver ring pierces his right earlobe, although the marks on his ear show that he clearly wore more piercings once. He has worked hard on making his voice accent-less, although the speech patterns of Illian still occasionally come through, especially when he is angry.

Ferran has had a number of different professions, in many different lands, never too ready to settle into any one role for long. This wanderlust may have been temporarily sated whilst rising through the ranks of the Warder Yards, but it returned anew once he obtained the fancloak. For the reason, Ferran is happiest and less stone-faced when he's free to pursue his own desires, whether that's choosing a Drin to help mentor, or choosing to accompany an Asha'man on a journey across the world. His attitude becomes more flippant and surly when choices are taken away from him, as he is assigned to duties rather than picking them himself.


Ferran was born into a trading family from Illian. His first memories are of ships, and he joined the crew on one of the family's vessels as soon as he was able. He saw the various port cities of Ebou Dar, Tanchico and Bandar Eban before his fourteenth nameday, and his desire to see more of the world set him off towards Tear before his sixteenth. Ferran worked hard to integrate himself amongst the people of Tear, despite the well-known enmity between the nation of his birth and the nation he now called home. He found work, once more aboard trading ships, although Tear couldn't sate his appetite for long either.

Somehow, and Ferran is still unsure what measure of charm and muscles he used, he found work onboard an Atha'an Miere ship. This lasted for all of one journey, from Tear to Shara. Ferran found the working conditions onboard the Atha'an Miere ship distracting, and was not welcome on the return journey. After a couple of weeks, a Tanchician vessel docked, and Ferran was able to leave.

After arriving in Tanchico, Ferran made his way to Hama Valon, via Elmora and Amador and Jehannah. The journey took the better part of two years, working various jobs in each city and between. Eventually, a twenty-two year old Ferran arrived at the Grey Tower, and set to work on his latest role - to be the best Gaidin he could strive to be.

Legacy Awards
2016-05-10 The admin of the Tower has been in a state of constant change for a while now, but whenever there have been holes, Jenny and Craig have jumped in to help out, while still remaining an active presence in admin, in the Hall, and in RP. 2016-05-10 Elia Darrow: For the Creating Ter'angreal class written while she was Accepted, as well as the extremely interesting ter'angreal she has created and the work she has done to sort and catalog the Vaults of the Tower.
2016-01-20 This was a one-time award, given to all active members as of January 2016, granted personally by the Amyrlin Seat at that time--Bella, writing for Miahala Sedai--for simply being a part of the Grey Tower, which she has long considered her refuge. This was granted to show her appreciation. 2016-05-10 This award is granted to the active admin team in April of 2016, in recognition for the superhuman effort they put forth in keeping the site running smoothly through an unexpected onslaught of new members, a shortage in staff, and a slew of real life catastrophes / stress on all their parts.
