Describe yourself in DF terms. I'll start.

A medium-sized creature, prone to great ambition.

He has been quite content lately. He has been stressed by homework lately. He admired a fine Ciaphas Cain Book recently. He ate a very good Hamburger recently.

He is the son of LordBrassroast's Mom and LordBrassroast's Dad.

He is a citizen of the States of Unity. He is a member of the Novelty of Hampshires. He is a former member of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

He was born on Granite 27, 2001, and is 15 years old.

He is skinny. His medium-length hair is curly. His hair is brown. His eyes are brown. His ears are slightly large. His chin is large. His brown eyebrows are large. His skin is tan-pink.

He is quick to heal, but he is somewhat weak.

He likes computers, peacoats, the color green, tabletop games, video games, history for its richness, dogs for their loyalty, and dwarves for their awesomeness. When possible, he prefers to consume beef steak and popcorn. He absolutely detests mosquitoes.
