PLAY-BY: Floyd Leech (Disney: Twisted Wonderland)
FULL APPEARANCE:
Flotsam stands at a respectable 6' 7" in height, with a lean body structure that borders on scrawny. With olive green eyes, he examines the world, and his black hair sits upon his head in slight waves, parted to the right side. Flotsam looks nearly identical to his twin brother Jetsam, with the long strand of hair parted to the right side of Flotsam’s face the only identifying difference between the two. When it comes to his wardrobe, Flotsam often wears garments quite casual, with a Gather set or two kept to the back. Every day, he seems somewhat lazy; should buttons be present on his shirt, they're often left partially unbuttoned or the buttons misaligned.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Flotsam is generally a very laid-back and easygoing individual to interact with, and he tends to enjoy people. On occasion, however, these interactions can be one-sided in the sense that only Flotsam enjoys it. Flotsam believes he's never a boring conversationalist, and forever a delight to be around. The way he interacts with people can be described on a scale as teasing - which can end up being uncomfortable for others - or downright creepy. There are times when Flotsam comes off as sinister or threatening, and not always accidentally. Staring in silence is a bad habit of his that he's never broken. The only time Flotsam might lose his temper is if someone he cares for is threatened. In that case, there is no holding back the whirlwind that his Flotsam and his hostility.

Flotsam tends toward laziness, preferring to nap or otherwise loaf around. If he can get someone else to do his work for him, he'll gladly take the opportunity. This doesn't always apply to his work as a Tailor, however. The passion he holds for his work can surpass his lazy tendencies. Flotsam rarely forgets things if the subject interests him. In fact, he pursues learning things that interest him with intense drive. However, should he deem the subject boring, he'll completely disregard the knowledge, declaring it pointless to retain. Flotsam enjoys gossiping, or rather sharing the interesting tidbits and secrets he's found; his observation skills are often underestimated. Similar to his twin Jetsam, Flotsam is fond of playing pranks on people for his own amusement. And for the amusement of the victim, of course. Flotsam isn't fond of those who can't take a joke, and can become quite annoyed and even irate.

Flotsam is wholeheartedly devoted to both his twin and his wher. If he could have it his way, he'd never be apart from either of them. Though it's difficult to see, Flotsam has the tendency to fret and worry for his twin brother, should even the tiniest thing happen or they remain separated for long. For his Flotsk, Flotsam would move the world, should she ask. Flotsam is actually considering never bonding a second wher, for none could compare to Flotsk, in his opinion. Never can Flotsam be more affectionate or loving than toward his green or his twin brother; no other will see such devotion. Well, as far as Flotsam is concerned, that is. Flotsam is rather fond of giving people pet names based on the sea; the more annoying they are, the better.


HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father - living
Mother - living
Jetsam of Green Tsask - greenhandler - twin brother - living
Alun - pirate - friend - living
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None, open!
BIRTHPLACE: A small coastal cothold of Ista Province
HISTORY:
Even when they were born, Flotsam was never far behind his twin brother Jetsam. After several Turns of struggling to conceive, their parents were at last blessed with not one, but two sons! Joy! Flotsam always thought they made much too big a deal of it, but to each their own. Flotsam grew up alongside his twin wanting for nothing, for the most part. Some favorite childhood pastimes included playing with the other children, exploring, and even hanging around some of the adults - particularly the local wherhandler and her whers. And when Jetsam expressed the desire to become a farmer and Flotsam the talent and passion to be a Tailor in their late childhood Turns, both wishes were granted, and each pursued these trades in their cothold of origin, Flotsam under a resident Journeyman, and Jetsam learning with their uncle.

Being an Apprentice Tailor came easily to Flotsam, and he excelled in his studies and work. Graduation came at age nineteen, and with it, a wealth of possibilities. The world lay before him. The question was "what would he do now?" Flotsam thought to practice his Craft for a few Turns before deciding if he'd like to pursue Mastery. Yet it seemed life had another plan. On one of his frequent adventures with his twin brother, the two of them encountered what was undeniably a wher's nest - abandoned, but not empty. Two wher eggs sat within. Jetsam immediately took command of the situation, requesting Flotsam return to the cothold and alert the wherhandler. Flotsam never ran faster in his life. When he returned with the wherhandler in tow, it was confirmed that the nest had been abandoned. Then there was the issue of what now?

Flotsam had the answer: there were two eggs and two unbonded young men. Flotsam suggested that Jetsam and himself Impress the two wherlets when they hatched.

It pleased Flotsam to no end to see the annoyance in his twin's eyes, but it delighted him even more that Jetsam agreed with his idea. Neither had been Searched for official Candidacy. Rude. But it was decided then: Flotsam and Jetsam would be handlers, and sooner than expected. Both eggs hatched that night, and Flotsam's egg spilled forth a huge green. The bond was swiftly made, and Flotsam's life changed forever. Flotsk was perfect. Flotsam could hardly register Jetsam's egg hatching a second green as he gazed into his Flotsk's warm eyes. Never would he want for a companion again. They were a team now: Flotsam and Flotsk, and Jetsam and Tsask. All four were equally fabulous and absolutely amazing; unstoppable together.

Flotsam took being a wherling in stride, and with no small hint of pride. Training under the local wherhandler, he learned everything he needed to best care for his green. Every little bit of information was processed and understood, only to demand more. At last, he'd learned everything and both Flotsam and Flotsk were no longer considered wherlings, but rather an adult wherpair, alongside Jetsam and Tsask. Not only was he a Tailor, but he was now a wherhandler: Flotsam of Green Flotsk. Perfect.

Then word reached him of Semaca. Well, word reached Jetsam, and Jetsam passed it to Flotsam. Listening to his twin speak of this Weyr, he became more inclined to investigate. It was a new place; a new adventure. Journeymen were welcome in their Chopin Squad. Even if Jetsam held no formal training, both twins were educated and skilled. Semaca could use that. Flotsk seemed very enthused at the idea of going to Semaca Weyr. And with Flotsk's wish in mind, Flotsam hurried to pack his bags. The transfer to Semaca was simple, and Flotsam settled in with his twin and their whers quickly; with no difficulty.

It didn't take long at all for Flotsam and Jetsam to both meet a friend: an ex-Candidate pirate by the name of Alun. The duo of twins Jetsam and Flotsam became a trio to include this pirate, and Flotsam enjoys annoying being around Alun to this day. Where Jetsam or Alun goes, Flotsam is never far behind, and Flotsk is never far behind him. Adventure most certainly winks at the horizon, and Flotsam will be first in line to go exploring.

Flotsk

Image

Hi! Am Flotsk - your friend! I smile! Have nice day.

BASICS

NAME: Flotsk
BIRTHDATE Late Spring 2770
AGE: 3 as of Early Summer 2773

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 3

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 12.5 ft.
HEIGHT: 5 ft.
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #cde424
FULL APPEARANCE:
Big. That is Flotsk. Big. Not only is she physically large in all dimensions, but she is round as well. Oh, don't forget how wonderful her body is to touch! When one presses their hand to Flotsk's round belly, they're met with spongy hide and plentiful rubbery blubber. It seems this green is made only of softness! Additionally, Flotsk's footsteps are heavy and completely lacking in subtlety. The very earth seems to shake whenever she is around. This aside, Flotsk boasts a deep green hide, as muted yellow-green paints her belly, neck, and lower jaw - her entire underside, truly.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Flotsk's personality mirrors her appearance: big and soft. She seems to fill the room simply by existing. A gentle giant, Flotsk is the sort of wher that wishes to protect those around her with all her heart. Giving rides to children is a favorite activity. A very motherly sort of green, she is full of optimism and always a delight to have present. Flotsk is prone to "smiling" at people in hopes to make their day a little brighter, along with giving well-wishes. Yet she doesn't seem to realize that she has large wher teeth, and her smiles might be a tad intimidating, coupled with her bulk. Unconsciously, Flotsk has the habit of looming, and needs to be told when she's frightening someone, for that is never her intention. Additionally, Flotsk is a wher that likes to express her affection physically. Cuddles, bumps, and even squishes are her favorite ways of saying hello. Here too someone must explicitly tell her she's being too rough, lest she hurt someone accidentally.

To her handler, Flotsk is a giant teddy bear. Cuddling and wrestling are two of their favorite pastimes, among others. Flotsk is a green of simple needs, and to merely be with her handler and close family satisfies her. There isn't an ounce of leadership drive in this wher. Perfectly content to go with the flow, Flotsk prefers to let others make the big decisions. Similar to her handler, Flotsk is fond of lazy days. Mud-wallowing, swimming, and naps in the sun are exquisite. But when it's time to work, Flotsk is the first one to jump to the ready and see the job to full completion. There will be no shirking and no slacking until it's done. There isn't a single mean bone in her body, either. Even if one were to do her great harm, Flotsk would shrug it off and move right along. However, should her handler or close companions be threatened, Flotsk won't hesitate to take the blow. Being big and squishy means she's supposed to be the shield that protects the vulnerable, right?
