Ruok is 5ft 4in tall and 28 years old. No-one calls him Rickwerd.
He is the resident valetudinarian and also cheif healer for the more-than-wealthy Canzerth household.
A chronic worrier Ruok bears all the semblance of a weedy drug addict; he is jittery, timid and is often found scrubbing his hands raw with disinfectant. The paranoid and nervous type, he is obsessed with cleanliness to the point where he believes he is gravely ill from his ‘allergies.’
In reality he isn’t allergic to anything.
He does however have a morbid fascination with death and disease, a fascination that is duly unified with paralytic terror. His attire therefore features amongst his many quirks, with all openings stitched closed one wonders how he gets in and out, or indeed what hour he must have to wake in the morning to get dressed.
(He probably looks more worried than usual in this portrait as we forced him to remove his facemask and surgical cap in order to see his face – we assume he cut his own hair.)
