Character type: Guard
Appearance: Ajita is little, standing at only 4’8”, with wiry muscles. Her breasts are small, and her hips narrow, since she hit puberty alarmingly late, probably due to either malnutrition or a genetic quirk. She isn’t done growing yet.
Personality: Ambitious. That’s a good way to describe Ajita, ambitious and shrewd. She’s also very persistent, when it suits her purposes. She’s been called amoral by some people, and maybe that’s somewhat true, but it’s not quite fair. Ajita is one of those people who believes the ends justify the means. And if you talk to her, you become convinced that whatever end she’s working towards is shining, and brilliant. So maybe you’ll humor her, just this once... She’s good at talking people around, at making them believe, but it’s hard to tell whether Ajita herself really believes the things she says. But whatever it is she does believe, it seems to come out right in the end, because Ajita’s ultimate goal is never murder and mayhem. She can -and will- do great things, she just might be cruel and manipulative in the process. She’s Machiavellian in the original sense of the word.
History: Ajita was born at Verd Hold, to a woodcrafter and his wife. Right from the start she was loud and strange and unnervingly driven. She left the safety of her mother’s apron strings at five to go to the hold’s crèche/school with the other children, and within a year she had all the younger children (and a few of the older ones) at her command. She organized small rebellions against the harper who taught them, and daring robberies of the main kitchen’s supply of sweets. Though she was caught and punished several times, she never stopped being naughty, she just got better at devising alibis and redirecting blame.
