Description

Brebain's age is only just beginning to show, in the network of fine lines around his often-squinted blue-grey eyes. His dark hair, neatly trimmed, is as yet untouched by grey; his figure remains trim, unlike that of so many men of a certain age who are not required to remain physically active. His strong chin is often graced by a few days' beard, the better to soften and balance out the rest of his strong features — especially drawing attention away from the length of his nose.


History

Born and raised at Fort Sea Hold, the second of way too many kids, Brebain was lucky enough to grow up in the lap of relative luxury — it's his father's sister who became Lady Fort Sea, but all her nieces and nephews benefited as a result, and never mind the fact that their actions had nothing whatsoever to do with her marriage. From the the time Brebain reached the age of about seven, meanwhile, his Lady-Aunt Isama was surprisingly willing to ask and even accept his advice about what she should wear — helped, undoubtedly, by the fact that when he was such a tender age, he was selecting items exclusively from her wardrobe, all of which involved items she already liked.

His fascination with clothing never waned; as a result, with his family's blessing, as soon as he was old enough he was shipped out to apprentice to the Weavercraft, there to learn more than he'd even imagined about fiber and weave, drape and cut, color and style and everything else. His early experience dressing a Lady Holder gave him an in when it came to designing fancywear for ladies and gentlemen alike; his early experience growing up in a Lady Holder's family also gave him the necessary skills to interact with other Blooded folk without any discomfort cropping up (except, perhaps, that inherent in a Northern Lady trying out cropped trousers in earliest spring).

Time passed; unlike his little sister Mirinda, Brebain didn't come up with some technologically-inspired way of completely revamping and improving his Craft. Instead, his focus was more along the lines of handcrafted perfectionism — as he was fussy enough with ensuring that every piece he turned out exactly matched his vision for it that he drew the eye of an assortment of Weaver Masters, who were generally impressed with the visions in question. Journeying took him to Tillek eventually, for nearly a decade; near the end of that time, he was made a Master, in recognition of his hard work and dedication (and, well, fine, the new dye process he invented, or at least refined). Tillek is not, however, the fashion capital of Pern, despite Master Brebain's residence; it was surely time to move.

The question remains whether or not Fort Weyr actually is the fashion capital of Pern; it is, at least, more central, and therefore — theoretically — better than Tillek. Some of this might be because Brebain is resoundingly apolitical. Some of this might just be that he was a little bit homesick. Some of it may have to do with a desire to be closer to his sister, or at least his niece. And some of it might simply be that he appreciates having a readily-to-hand delivery service that will cut down the turnaround times on his specialty orders significantly. Watch out, Fort: there's a new clothier in town.
