Cala is a young man, tall and "gawky as a newborn colt," with a "remarkable length of bony leg." His manner and/or gaze is often described as "dreamy," "vague," and unfocused. He has a prominent high-arched nose, pale blue eyes, and wears thick spectacles with round lenses. He wears his hair in an untidy queue. His blue maza's robes are old and in disrepair, noticably more so than those of Dazhis Athmaza. He wears a baldric with the Drazhadeise seal, as do the other nohecharei.
