Men are sheep. Where one goes, the rest will soon follow. ~ Julia Quinn (The Duke and I (Bridgertons, #1))

He loves sheep, obviously. He has a good sense of humour (is funny), he loves to be random, though he can also be really self-conscious. After all the time he spent in Wales he thinks of it like a second home. He has a very adorable personality, yet can also be quite immature at times. Considering he's a virgin who has yet to kiss, he had a reasonable grasp of that kinda stuff fairly early on and can be rather dirty-minded at times. He finds that he is incapable of holding a grudge even when people hurt him, and at times he can be quite lazy about getting things done.
He also likes to ask his people (usually people he knows) how they are a lot and what they are doing, he's very curious. He's also very sympathetic, but the constant questions can get a bit annoying at times. He also tends to assume stuff a lot when talking to people.

Guarding Sheep, WIP
Live long and prosper >.< (aka if trouble rears it's head, turn yours a run)
For years, the gods and goddesses have watched on while the humans developed through the years, as they advanced both personally and technologically. Lately one thing has become quite clear to them; humans have a habit of being very irresponsible when it comes to their environment and the animals that reside within that environment. They came to a decision, fearing for the safety and longevity of their sacred animals, they have decided to create a special group of nymphs to help protect their sacred animals.
These nymphs’ life forces are each attached to the animal they are a nymph of; if that animal becomes extinct, the nymph will die. The gods considered the fact that here are thousands of animals and creatures that roam the earth, but not wanting to over extend their powers, they have decided to only concern themselves with the animals that are sacred to them.
When they aren’t out in the world helping other nymphs and helping to protect their animals, they spend their time at camp.
After Creation to Fall 2013
After spending a couple of months on Olympus learning the ropes and being taught about the mortal world, Hermes sent Rhys on assignment to Wales to help some herds of sheep there. Rhys really liked it there so he's spent the last little over a year mostly in Wales, but also travelling to England, Scotland and Ireland helping Sheep.
Recently he's decided to take some time off and come to camp.

I love balancing between chaos and control with everything I do. I always have a fear of going one way or another, getting lost in something, or losing everything to get lost in. And I fear being a completely acceptable sheep in society."
Powers of an Animal Nature Spirit/Traits of a Sheep Guardian:
They have a telepathic/empathetic connection with nature and other nymphs. They also have a special, stronger, connection with other animal nymphs
As they are nymphs they do not age, remaining eternally young.
Their senses of smell, sight and hearing are more enhanced, enabling them to sniff out monsters, track down demigods, etc.
They are able to summon animals to aid them, they have the best control over their own animal type
Each type of animal nymph has their life force attached to that species, so if a species were to go extinct the nymph would die
Each nymph is able to change into the type of animal they are, and only that type. So the bear nymph could not turn into a mouse, but it could turn into a grizzly, black bear, polar bear, etc.
While In animal form they have all the normal abilities of the animal. So if they are a hawk they can fly.
While in regular nymph/person form, they only retain passive characteristics/traits from the animal. So if they are a hawk, perhaps they are claustrophobic in enclosed spaces, but they cannot fly
