Name Pronounced: sell is eah
Appearance: The first thing you notice when you look at Selisia isn't her slightly less than average height, or her black sleek hair, but her dark grey eyes. They seem to be mismatched with her darker features, but the color runs in the family, at least on her dad's side. Thick black eyelashes and gentle arching brows accent the color of her eyes by providing a frame for them. She is about half a head shorter than her contemporaries, which is usually the next thing noticed, and while she's not skinny she is very curvy for her age and before becoming pregnant she had actually achieved a very nice figure. Her long wavy black hair which after some time in the Arolos sun has lightened a bit reaches just about mid back and is worn loose on most occasions.
Personality: If you asked her sister about her personality, she'd tell you that Selisia has "short person complex". She might be small in size but she's big in opinion. While she tries to remember there is a thing in this world called tact, she isn't always successful. Generally friendly, Selisia isn't necissarily afraid to pick a fight or defend someone she cares about. Fiercly loyal, she hates it when friends are fighting. While she tends to be a bit of loner at times, Selisia can be very friendly and outgoing at others. Beware those who cross her path or make her cry though, revenge isn't something she does lightly, but that doesn't mean she won't take it. Selisia tried to act older than her age and can sometimes be a bit bossy, but when she gets out of line (which is at least once a week) its not too hard to put her back in her place.
History: Selisia was born and bred in Estuary Hold. During her years as a hold brat she spent much of her time running around and getting into mischief with her sister Sreponia who is two years older than she. Selisia never showed much aptitude for any of this skills or crafts other than healing, but had her dreams always set on another sight, the sky. Like most others in all of Pern she was awed and amazed by dragons and mystified by their riders. In all of her dreams she was a dragon rider.
Information about Selisia's pets
Pet Name: Patch
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Patch is still very small having just hatched. It will be difficult to determine what his proportions will be for another few months. He is however a very beautiful aquamarine color with a darker patch blue, which he derives his name from.
Personality: Patch is playful and isn't much of a leader. He will do anything his pet tells him to do, even if that involves playing mean pranks on others. Always active, Patch gets bored easily and is constantly looking for something fun to do, and if something fun can't be found, a nap is always in order.
Information about Selisia's dragon
Dragon Name: Swaneth
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: When this hatchling breaks out of its shell and curious eyes fall upon it to see if the fungus was more than shell deep, they'll be surprised. Dark blotches seem to cover this little green. Blotches they're sure can only mean one thing, as soon as the little girl uncurls herself completely and dries off she'll be fungus covered too.
Personality: Swaneth will be filled with confidence in a way some greens can be and yet she'll most likely suffer a little self-doubt from time to time and she'll need to be told how beautiful she is during those emotional slumps. Will it be conceit driving her need? Not at all, just an internal longing to believe that she really is special to her lifemate.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: She lacks some self confidence and doubts her abilities, she will have more endurance than many other greens because of her excellent musculature.
