Fartho is plump, with a halfling's ruddy cheeks, and thick shock of dark brown hair, usually rumpled.  His blue eyes are keen, and although he's young, are already surrounded by laugh lines.  He tends to wear simple, comfortable, but well made clothes of fine cloth. Said clothes are often marked and stained both by spell components, as well as cooking ingredients.

He is inevitably festooned by bags, pouches, and other storage devices.  The more exotic of these tend to produce scents that linger, often pleasantly, sometimes not.  When not actively involved in a task, he'll often be found absently nibbling some tidbit or delicacy unearthed from one of his pouches.  It's probably food.
