Tall and slender, Bobby Dover is a striking figure with his pale skin, deep red hair and apple-green eyes. Usually, he wears his hair in a thick braid for ease, though on special occasions he wears them open over one shoulder, showing off his natural waves. Not classically beautiful (though that's what most people call him at first glance), Bobby Dover is memorably charismatic and often described as fey and elegant, especially in comparison to his stocky brother Wayne Dover.
Youth on EspenEdit
Growing up in Bellingham as the second of five childen of a disabled, alcoholic mother, he was able to enjoy a regular school education despite his family's poverty thanks to his mother's pension. Rigid Espener structures left little place for youths to spend free time, and together with his elder brother Wayne Dover and their friends Mandy, Kiki, Ed and Dimples, he usually hung out in a flotsam filled part of the main wavebreaker of Bellingham's freight port.
In 5057, Bobby learns that his brother had been bought by Vian Dracon. See short story The fox-tailed Dragon. The following months see a gentle romance developing between Bobby and Vian, see short stories Dinner Date, Crown & Lance and Anger Management. In the end, Bobby decides to move to P2, both to be closer to Vian and hoping to escape the rigid confines of Espen.
