Species: Avian (Harpy)
Age: 23 years old (born on the 12th Day of Elen)
Height: 5’6” || Weight: 131 lbs.
Phobius is somewhat tall, and with a slender build that lets him move with ease in the air. Like most of his kind, he’s also feathered, and his plumage resembles that of a fox kestrel; it’s reddish-brown streaked with a much darker brown, though the undersides of his long, narrow wings are lighter in comparison. On the upper half of his body, the plumage is thin, gradually giving way to the fair, featherless skin of his neck and face; his face itself is kind and youthful, with his brows slightly arched above his long-lashed eyes, their irises a warm, rich shade of honey-gold. Atop his head sits a shock of red hair, its locks short but wavy; he rarely ever tries to style it, but most of it always ends up parted to one side. In all other aspects, he’s not that different from the average harpy; his wings and arms are separate entities, but his legs and feet are like a bird’s, with hooked talons that are perfect for gripping (and tearing). His ears are also pointed, and although his hair is quite thick, it doesn’t hide them.
When it’s particularly cold out, Phobius will sometimes wear a scarf or even a light cloak, but most clothes don’t fit him right, so he tends not to bother with them.
Personality: Phobius is a gentle, kind-hearted soul who has neither the stomach nor the proper skills for dealing with violence. Seen as quite the emotional deviant among his kin, he prefers to end fights rather than start them and is keen on talking out problems instead of resorting to force. He's incredibly social, and enjoys bonding with all sorts of people, ignoring language barriers and the like in favor of finding a new friend. A hard, somewhat lonesome childhood has made him dependent on the presence of others, and he is quick to cling to those whom he deems safe and friendly. He's incredibly loyal and loves to help others as well as to keep them happy, willing to go to foolish, even dangerous lengths to make it so. It's this dotage, however, that acts as a great flaw in his system.
Eager to please and serve, Phobius seems to have no problems with taking orders. He unquestioningly trusts others and accepts their every word as truth, unless some powerful hunch tells him otherwise. As a result, he is incredibly gullible and easy to manipulate. He knows the difference between right and wrong and can easily tell “good” apart from “bad,” but it'd only take a smooth-talking stranger to change his mind.
As far as mental abilities go, Phobius, bluntly put, has the mind of a small child. He's slower at processing things and doesn't necessarily act his age, stuck in a limbo that rests between maturity and immaturity. His attitude is also very childlike, prompting him to react in situations much like someone of his mind's age would. He's quick to run from danger, is easily distracted, and will often cry if he's feeling overwhelmed or scared.
