Nettle, Bone? Whoever he is, he is a broad shouldered, weather-worn man. Tanned skin like old worn leather, with sharp blue eyes that lightly touch on everything around him from under the rim of a broad hat. By his side a very dark-skinned fellow with broad flat nose, and painted face. Definitely a man who had been away from the shores of Blighty before and brought a companion back!
A man travelled, maybe a tattoo slightly showing under a rolled up sleeve, a machete on the hip, accompanied by a well-worn knife and pistol stuffed into a belt. Damn good sturdy boots, definitely one for walking, maybe even “trekking”. Probably the sort that has a “swag” and canteen in his berth.
