Basic Information

Guts is Journeyman Braughan's fourth son, and still very new to his apprenticeship, but what he lacks in experience he makes up for with enthusiasm. Or… well, there may be such a thing as too much enthusiasm. He's a very hands-on kid, fascinated by the squishy fragility of living bodies, and just can't wait until he's a senior and can become his father's apprentice and spend more time bonesawing and gut-poking. It's probably a good thing that his senior apprenticeship is still several turns away (if ever), because he has a lot of maturing to do before he can be trusted with anything more difficult than bandaging skinned knees. He's not very bright, and still spends his free time tormenting his younger siblings, or hanging over Zechalu's shoulder perving over his latest "anatomy" drawing. Unlike his older brother Bucnar, he isn't bothered by his father's loud, overly-critical estimation of his work — after all, Dad yells all the time at everyone, so why should he take it personally? (Not that Guts really takes anything personally — say what you will about him, but he's definitely self-confident.) He thinks Braughan is super badass, a man who says what he means and doesn't take any crap from anyone, and he too aspires to become a cranky old man with a bloody apron whom everyone walks on eggshells around someday. Even so, when it comes down to it, he's actually more of a mama's boy, and he'll whine to his mother in an instant if he needs food or comfort or comfort food (so long as his father isn't around to see it).

If you ask, he'll say that everyone calls him Guts because he's brave and can dissect a frog in five minutes or less, but the truth is the nickname originally stuck because he's quite chubby, and his dad has a lot of kids to try and remember. Nicknames that are quick references to their physical features are just Braughan's way of expressing his… affection? His real name is Bardo, but no one ever calls him that except for his mother when she's angry with him.
