Description

Haywood Cockshaw is a tall man, seemingly made all the taller by the way he carries himself. That he's of noble upbringing shows in his finery, if not his otherwise roguish demeanour. His eyes are dark, and his hair is blonde, worn slightly long, and it doesn't take much for it to fall in a shaggy mess about his ears, despite his best efforts to keep it swept back and looking well-kept. At least his facial hair is more easily groomed and kept in line. He tends to be found dressed in leathers in shades of brown and green, or grey, and when he moves, it's with a swagger, and an air of confidence.

Background

Alyn Cockshaw, called Haywood, is the second son of the main bloodline of House Cockshaw. Being second in line to inherit comes with its freedom as well as its burdens. While Haywood was expected never to stray too far from family and duty, he was still allowed his on pursuits. As many of his ilk do, Haywood pursued knighthood, while also becaming something of an outdoorsman. From an early age, he excelled at hunting, trapping, and tracking prey. (This is not limited strictly to animals, though he's not quite so sinister as to hunt people. Generally.) While his skill with a blade is passable, it's his skill with a bow that sets him apart. Feats of archery are his speciality, and where he excels in tourneys.

In addition to his skills as a hunter, Haywood has always had a penchant for mischief. From an early age he was adept at sneaking about to secure himself illicit snacks, or try to observe things he wasn't meant to observe. He was a handful, but also rather good at talking his way out of the trouble he got himself into. These skills have served him well into adulthood, where they have much more practical applications.

Haywood has spent much of his adulthood away from home, arguing that he should be allowed to enjoy his freedom as long as it can last. After all, he's not the first son, and even if something were to happen to him, there's yet a third son to step into the role, should the worst of all things happen. (A brother Haywood intends to argue is infinitely better equipped to inherit their father's title than he.) Never in his wildest dreams - or worst nightmares - did he expect his elder brother would die before his time. At least, not before producing an heir of his own. News of Eryk's murder has understandably drawn Haywood to Oldtown, not only to make a show of standing as new heir to the Cockshaw line, but also to investigate his brother's murder, and see about avenging him. Once that's seen to, perhaps he can begin the process of convincing people that it is his younger brother who should run the family. Starting with Viggo.
