I can't help myself but love this particular NPC (or is that NPC's? :P) But I find Arron a little bit as one of the stereotipycal 'save all people' type. By this I mean "Despite his intimidating appearance htough, he's got a pleasant quality around him".
It fits perfectly which is the thing that got me. Nice one Echo!
A small group of men stares intensely at something. Coming nearer, you see puppies, obviously still young, as they are small and only learn to walk. Cute as they are, the men look serious and exchange a comment here and there, making their mother nervous. But one man keeps her somewhat calm, while looking with others on the little ones.
The puppies are a completely new dog breed. The breeder hopes for better characteristics, the other men are mostly hunters and other dog-fanciers, that were called or came from own interest. If all looks well, they will have business. But now, they are just watching.
