He is one of the tallest youth in his village, and often noted for his height.
Kaz prefers to use the Long bow
Kaz Kinsley is the main character in The Troven. The story follows him from being a watchman in the small village of Dungan, protecting the village by sitting on the roof of the inn with his bow, to leaving on a special rite of passage called The Troven.
In Dungan each person is born with a special ability, and Kaz was born with a strong (level 4) sight enhancement. This enhancement allows him to zoom in on details at far distances.
When Kaz was still young, he saved a child from an eagle attack by shooting the eagle down with his bow while it was in flight. From that time he gained the nickname Eagle Eye. Although his friends usually call him Kaz, they do use this nick name from time to time as a friendly jab.
Web Extra: Kaz uses the long bow and so he has very little need for hand weapons. Although he never uses it, in my original character profile, I had Kaz being proficient at using a short staff. In time while writing, this became an obsolete skill, but there are a couple of hints to his staff skills left in the book. Keep your eyes open and you will see them.
Kaz's playful back and forth with the other boys was very fun and easy for me to write as I grew up with two brothers, and a sister who liked to get in on the banter.
