His facial structure is sharp, planes and angles.

Personality/History: Hourel has lived a long time and his age occasionally shows. Not in infirmity, but in occasional distraction. Normally an active, immediate member of the pod, it’s frequently easy to forget just how many turnings of the tides he has experienced. He knows the time will come when he will take his Last Swim, but he does not feel that time will be soon. He enjoys the pleasures and beauties of physical life too much still to trade flesh for spirit. However, he is sometimes caught up in nostalgia for all those he’s known and loved who have moved on.

Very calm and introspective, Hourel seldom speaks without first carefully considering what he will say. Not one to react or decide anything hastily, Hourel has been known to consider a problem for several full turnings of the season before making a decision on what action to take – and that action can be one that takes even more turnings to complete. It is not that Hourel is patient, but his perception of time and urgency is distinctly different than many – even among his own pod. There are very few, if any, wavedancers who have lived as long as he. While he is simply one elder among nine, in day to day life he’s generally the de-facto leader.

While he can be caught off guard, he cannot be rushed into a poorly-thought action or word. In fact, his general reaction at being surprised is amusement at himself.
