Role: Fisherman but really wants to be Traveller

Relationship: Childhood friend, and possible romance
While most men in Valmiro’s village are fisherman, he only cared for the plants and animals that surrounded him. Other villagers thought him strange and his own parents did not quite know what to do with him. For them, it was frustrating and they tried countless times to bring him around. Valmiro, of course, realized his parents’ feelings and it pained him to disappoint them. He did once try to give fishing a serious attempt…which ended in his getting seasick and falling over the side. But then he started to wonder, why do the small fish form shoals?
As soon as he thought of a question, Valmiro was driven to pursue the answer. He grew further and further isolated from his fellow humans, but there were more than enough plants and animals around to fill his time. He braved steep cliffs to investigate rare plants and dangerous beasts, giving himself over completely to his curiosity. Many people in the village started saying that Valmiro had lost his mind. There was one girl who watched warmly over him and that was Quina. She often chided him for being too reckless and always kept an eye out for him, but never criticized him. After all, she loved to listen to him talk—very one-sidedly, of course—about all that he had learned.
Time passed and Valmiro’s various observations drew closer to legitimate research. Indeed, the curiosity that had started with a desire to understand small animals and plants now grew to encompass the single greatest of questions: What did the world exist for? There was no way that he would be able to find the answer to this huge question in the small village of Cassardis, however. And so Valmiro came to dream of leaving the village and of heading out into the world in order to satisfy his deep and unending curiosity.
