They can concede that he has made a significant effort in terms of body care, his hair hare short cut as the Slavic Imperium norm.
His outfit seems to be a mix of object from various origins. An original hat from steppe (Phrygian cap), a typically Britannic redingote passed over a seal leather shirt and trouser decorated with fish skin, and cleverly colored according to traditional patterns. The light leather boots seem a priori also be designed according to an archaic craft, but it would have been forget to check out the soles which seems to outcomes from the most renowned manufacturers of Merovingian Empire.
The man wears on his right a curved long knife (the length of a forearm) of excellent craftsmanship, and a curious oar of wood, strangely varnished and whose edges of the blade is as sharp as a sword. The oar is the exact size of Sahka, and it seems never to part with them. It is adorned of many patterns, one of which shows a woman wearing a diadem of stars.
For people used to explore the remote regions of Slavic Imperium, there is no doubt that Sahka is a crossbreed. His nose is too pronounced (albeit small) to be that of a Toungzhen, population whence comes this strange man.

Personality & Traits
|General Overview||Sahka is above all someone who loves to learn. His curiosity is also a source of many troubles, especially as it is lined with a habit of intimacy radically different from those of Empires. Knock before entering, for example, is not something customary for him. Already been considered as impertinent in his native region, do not be surprised to see him asking daring, or displaced questions, and even to make more or less sarcastic remark aloud.
Indeed, it is not the best diplomat, tell him to go and meet the Queen of Britannia, and he will go directly to his quarters before being thrown by guards, without there understands nothing, and if he find the words, he could probably end up doing a visit to jail for lèse majesté.
Apart from curiosity, Sahka is a stranger in many places. Most mundane things gives him a stunned look, and whith his clumsy language that leave the impression of dealing with a simpleton. It takes a careful and open mind to notice the great wit of Sahka behind his awkward words and manners.
Sometimes, another side of himself can appear, and it is a sad, and melancholic dreamer who stands before you.
|Strengths & Weaknesses||He is perceptive, open, curious, humorous. Sahka is a man of great heart and attentive listening. And if he finds the words, a man of good advice.
His survival skills in the wild make it a safe guide, nay cunning. Not lacking in practical sense, he may be clever even outside his favorite environment.
Besides this, it is obvious that his Many-colored outfit, some of his rude manners (or sometimes, conversely overly polite) and his whimsical character does not make someone easy to approach. Especially since this is not a man without pride, and sometimes hurtful remarks, or unjust behavior may eventually make it grouchy, or stubborn. Then, Paradoxically, he seems smarter, because his suddenly serious appearance, and his suitable requirement give more easily the magnitude of his character than does his awkward bonhomie.
|Hobbies & Interests||Sahka spends much time watching the stars, try things, and question people about their way of seeing, thinking, and understand things. He is very interested in ethical, religious, and technological issues.|
