He is a hairy, leathery, sour-looking bear of a man. He carries himself with the pride of a nobleman and open disdain for others. In most situations, one would be met with a condescending glare or disgusted grimace. Both tall and bulky for his race, his imposing stature only facilitates him looking down on others. His eyes are an odd color for his race; a pale purple, nearly lavender.

He is far beyond 'showing his age'. Years on the sea and in the sun have craggy, wrinkled features. His face is twisted into a perpetual scowl, and blue veins bulge out of his arms and legs. Despite his barbarian build, he dresses in finery and is well kept. Most often he wears a variety of long coats with large cuffs and gold trim, tall leather boots, leather gloves, and has a slew of pistols hanging from numerous belts and bandoliers. When outdoors, he tends to wear a tricorn cap.

Whether it be a preference of fashion or a statement of his wealth, he wears a plethora of jewelry, from gold necklaces with rare gems to numerous rings over his thick fingers. Much of this jewelry is clearly very old in design, likely pillaged from the ruins of dead civilizations.

Origin: 
Flynt Family

Herriman comes from a long line of pirates, inheriting the family 'business' after his father grew too old to sail. However, while the existence of his lineage is known and documented, (see: The Flynt Family: Old as Their Namesake) it is not common knowledge that he belongs to this family.

Indeed, while the name Admiral Herriman Nathaniel Flynt VII is printed on Wanted posters across Azeroth, no pictures ever accompany them. The Admiral has always kept a strict policy of secrecy in his trade, going so far as to use his strict Articles of Conduct to enforce the ruse. He operates through a legitimate front company, Cropes Trading Co., under his primary alias, John Cropes.
