Name Pronounced: Cler-bit
Appearance: At the moment, the most obvious thing about Clurbit is her swollen belly. Seven months pregnant, her stomach is round, and she looks just about ready to pop. She's slight enough that there might be problems with that - her hips could use being a little wider.
Personality: If given anything to be a sob about, Clurbit will take it - and do so delightedly. She has had so very little to lord over the other girls - children of drudges don't rate much in anyone's eyes. Any prestige she gets she can only earn in someone's bed - but she'll take that, and happily. Anything to avoid the others looking down their noses at her.
History: Clurbit was a girl who was a drudge, who became a gold Candidate, who for five whole months was a bronzerider's girl. For five whole months, she was ecstatically happy. M'deset spoilt her, let her into his luxurious Weyr - to sleep, not to clean! - fed her foods she'd never tasted before. For five months life was a dream, other girls were jealous of her, and the CandidateMasters approved of her.
Clurbit is a candidate. Her colour preference is Gold, Green, Blue
