Short and muscular, with carrotty red hair, freckles and slightly stick-out ears, Wayne isn't exactly handsome, but laddish, open-faced and with an infectuos smile. Often, he is described as 'studmuffin troll', especially in comparison to his fey younger brother Bobby Dover.
Youth on EspenEdit
Growing up in Bellingham as the first 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 younger brother Bobby 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 5055, he started training as a mechanic.
He was subsequently bought as pet by Vian Dracon, and after initial complications comes to like his master. Vian puts Wayne into training at the Phoenix Knight Tower, seeing his potential as a future Phoenix Squire.
