Name Pronounced: dye-ah
Appearance: Daya is a sweet-looking girl, the soft features of her undoubtedly beautiful face making her appear innocent and naive - which is somewhat true to character. A small, straight nose sits between expressive blue eyes, full coral lips frequenting a sultry smile and high cheekbones colored with a healthy flush. She's grown since arriving in the south, her petite form has filled out enough so that she looks less waif-like, and now stands at a decent 5'5". Though she never really developed much of a tan, Daya's fair complexion has darkened slightly and burns less easily, but she still has to take preventive measures.
Personality: Daya *is*, for the most part, an innocent and naive young girl. She's sweet and kind, but knows what she wants and does what it takes to get it. She's very goal-focused when she needs to be, and light-hearted at other times. She has started to become aware of the boys that give her blushing glances and sly grins, and is rather the accomplished flirt - the opposite of her brother.
History: A young farmcrafting couple, Voseri and Demlan, at a minor holding within the Benden protectorate was blessed with fraternal twins: a boy Dakarai and a girl Daya. While raising twins was a difficult experience for both parents, the children were raised well. Daya was very much a delicate and dainty girl, so Dakarai adopted the role of protective brother with vigor. The few bullies Daya encountered were rapidly beaten down by her brother.
