History: Faraji was born a drudge in the depths of Ista Weyr, her parents drudges as well. All her life, she worked, played with her younger sister Arfeni and lived happily. When she was twenty turns, she left Ista to move to Arolos, hoping to move up from drudge work to creche work. She got her wish and Arfeni came with her. Three turns would go by before she would meet Wingleader R'tal. They flirted and Faraji ended up sleeping with the handsome brownrider. Soon, Faraji realized that her one night stand had led to pregnancy. But what joy she would have gotten in that melted when R'tal stopped seeing her, retreating into his weyr with his weyrmate, K'ren. Farental was born and not even the new of the boy's birth was enough to sway R'tal into loving Faraji. So she grew angry and resentful. Five and a half months have gone by since Farental was born and R'tal still hasn't seen the boy.
