Writing Prompt: Character

Describe the physical appearance of a character.

He ducked his head when entering the room--any room--out of habit. If he were standing straight, his 6-foot-8-inch frame would tower over his wife by more than a foot. His salt-and-pepper hair seemed out of place with his youthful face. Aside from deep laugh lines and crow's feet, the signs of a life well-lived, the fifty-four-year-old was wrinkle-free. He had lively, dark brown eyes, peeking out from under rather bushy and unruly eyebrows. His wife was constantly trying to convince him that she should trim them up a bit. They clashed with his meticulously clean-shaven face. But he didn't mind in the least. He wore dark cargo shorts and an old gray tee shirt, advertising a 5k race from 1998. That it still fit was a testament to the healthy form he maintained. Lean muscles begged to be set free in activity. His was not a body meant to creep and crouch, he was built for the outdoors.
