You see Praxopius Fortney.  
He appears to be a Human.  
He is in the prime of life. He has large gold-speckled dark blue eyes, tanned skin, and chin-length pale silver hair.  
He wears a loose grey cotton shirt with the sleeves rolled up and the collar open slightly to reveal a small vial of seawater dangling from a thin chain around his neck.  
He sits in a crude wheeled chair. A heavy blue blanket is draped across his lap.
