Name Pronounced: Eye-ka
Appearance: Aicha is a fairly average looking girl, standing 5'5", with a sturdy build, weighing 122 pounds. She takes after her mother in looks, with dark cocoa brown hair, well tanned skin, and warm hazel green eyes. She occasionally has a slight limp in her right foot, especially in damp weather. There is a lot of strength hidden in her stocky body, thanks to working with runnerbeasts.
Personality: Despite taking after her mother in looks, Aicha's no-nonsense attitude is all from her Papa. It comes in very handy in her chosen Craft, with stubborn and unruly runnerbeasts. Aicha loves spending time outdoors with the runners, riding on her personal mount, Cade.There is a sassy streak hidden under her usually calm demeanor, that only comes out with family, or her closest friends. Aicha also has an abundance of patience, another good trait to have when training runners. She's generally laid back, with rare shows of sassy sarcasm.
History: Born and raised at Alonel Hold, Aicha's life has been fairly peaceful and uneventful, aside from getting her right foot broken at age 8 when it was stepped on by her pony, Tarnish, and the time she broke her arm at the age of 11, falling from a runner. She still has both her parents (Aida and Chalyn) and her older brother (Lynd), as well as her aunt and uncle who live nearby, along with several cousins. Alonel hold is so close to the Weyr that they frequently travel there for work, and Aicha has traveled there several times with her gather and others. Working with runners and herdbeasts is never-ending, but Aicha loves it, and wouldn't have it any other way.
