Justin was born in 982. He almost died of fever when he was five and spent years recovering enough to live a life of normal activity. Though he was never particularly vigorous, Justin was Sheared when he was 14. Like his sister, he disappeared from his family’s view for several years, taking a false name and working as a simple seaman on merchant vessels trading from Thyatis to the Minrothad Guilds. He found he had a knack for mathematics and trade and became apprentice to a trader-captain. He returned only a few months ago with trade gold and letters of commendation from his last employer in his pocket.
When Justin was a child, his sister Adriana nicknamed him “the Turtle” because of his slow and methodical mannerisms, his quietness, and his inscrutable expression. These traits are all still in evidence. Justin is a stubborn, dogged, quiet young man with no liking for politics but with a real appreciation for trade and commerce. He knows he is favored by neither parent to be heir to the throne, but doesn’t mind as ruling is not in his nature.
Justin is of less than average size (4’6″ and 140 lbs.) and is unlikely to grow. His hair is dark brown, his complexion formerly pale but now quite tan; his eyes are brown. He is uncomfortable in court dress and stubbornly attends all court functions in comfortable clothes – simple breeches and tunics or merchants’ robes.
