Character type: Other
Appearance: Born: 188.8.131.52
Personality: Emalin is hard-working and pleasant to be around, but she has a tendency to get bored easily. She's chatty and bright, but isn't interested in any of the female arts of sewing, housekeeping and baby-rearing. No thanks, she'd rather be fishing, or sailing, even sweeping out animals. She hasn't discovered her feminine side - she might not even have one. With her low boredom threshold she doesn't settle to anything for long. Also she doesn't object to trying to persuade people to do what she wants or, more often, allow *her* to do what she wants. It's never anything important, she has too much respect for authority to try that, but when people look at her in a disapproving manner and try to turn her attention to the normal female occupations she's quick to point out how much better she is at the practical, traditionally male, tasks.
History: Born the third child out of eight to the holders of a small cothold near Tillek, Emalin didn't stand out much against the gaggle of mainly boys that her siblings comprised. In fact more often than not she'd be in the thick of it - trying to learn the things they did. She wasn't a girl to sit around and learn needlework, even the call of the sea echoed through her at an early age and she learned to fish and sail with her two older brothers. Her parents frequently shook their heads and sighed at her activities but, they consoled themselves, at least she was being useful.
Information about Emalin's dragon
Dragon Name: Marilath
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: Dragons are meant to be graceful creatures, aren't they? Well somehow that usual grace seems to have given this green girl the slip. With a short tail and neck and a distinctly dumpy appearance, you wonder how she'd actually be able to get off the ground to fly, but she can manage that alright. A rather muted muddy green colouring shades her hide, meaning that she doesn't stand out overmuch amongst other greens. She'll never grow to be one of the biggest greens, stopping at the lower end of the normal scale for that colour, and she'll be a little lacking in some of the normal agility too because of her compressed length. But she does have a bit more stamina than those lithe greens who seemingly can turn on a wingtip, so she doesn't lose out.
Personality: Occasionally along comes a dragon that notices when things are wrong, down to minute details. Robe on back to front? She'll notice. Bootlaces untied? She'll notice. And she'll pick her lifemate up on all of these things, fussing over her appearance and safety as much as possible. Indeed, with rather a noticeable carrying mindvoice her new partner won't be able to ignore the constant barrage of "Have you done this, have you done that" and the easiest and fastest way to deal with it is to be as correct as possible in personal grooming and punctuality. That's another thing, this green is a stickler for being on time. Don't make her late for a lesson or you will get a lecture!
