Name Pronounced: ji-ZEHL
Appearance: This teenage girl is slightly overweight, and currently has a soft look about her. She has a round face, button nose, and somewhat pudgy cheeks with defined dimples when she smiles, which is often. Her long brown hair has been plaited into a thick braid. She's tall for her age. Her skin is lightly tanned, with few blemishes, though there's a large scar on her left leg - a puckered puncture mark below the knee.
Personality: Giselle is vivacious and active, with an almost bottomless appetite for life and its multitude of excesses. Though she is a happy, relatively well-adjusted young woman, she can be prone to holding grudges when she feels that it's justified, and has the same unpredictable mood swings as any young teenage girl. When it comes to work, she has to forcibly adjust her attitude while on duty, and can come off as over-earnest and a little too eager as a result. She will absolutely crush on people she idolizes.
History: Giselle was born and raised in Arolos Weyr, the daughter of a drudge and a blue rider, the product of a green flight's fallout. Her father was a distant presence in her life - in and out as her mother's mercurial moods dictated. He gave her gifts on her namedays, but they were often hopelessly unsuited to her - little wooden dragons with jointed wings and limbs, or baby dolls in dresses long after she had outgrown those sorts of baby toys. The only gift she kept of his was a stuffed, worn blue toy wher. Eventually, her father was transferred away to Ista, and the gifts stopped.
Information about Giselle's pets
Pet Name: Bojo
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: This firelizard is average-sized, but has disproportionately large wings and a mottled hide the colour of rich, loamy soil - a dark, splotchy brown. He is not overfed, but is a fit, healthy flit.
Personality: Bojo is inquisitive and intelligent, with a calm demeanor and occasional playful streak. He will try to mother younger firelizards, and loves challenges and puzzles - often distracted by them.
