Name Pronounced: My-Eesh-Uh
Appearance: Maisha stands at 5'4" and weighs about 115. She has startling bright green eyes that tend to turn a darker shade when she's concerned about something. Her hair was cut short at the beginning of her weyrlinghood, and frames her face perfectly with long unbroken strands. It's a strawberry blonde color which offsets her mild skin coloring. She has a spray of freckles across her nose and a small scar from a cut long mended on her right knee. She's semi muscular from her work as a weyrling, but still has pronounced curves which she tries to hide unknowingly.
Personality: Coming from a large family, she has learned to be humble. She's a hardworker and is fascinated with dragons. Despite her quiet streak, she does make close friends and is known to be a bit humorous as the occasion permits. Maisha is also very permissive, being an easygoing friend to most. She doesn't become attached to people easily, preferring to develop relationships over time, but she is willing to try if they are.
History: She was born to a pair of cotholders near one of the minor holds by Arolos Hold. Her family kept expanding until she had 8 brothers and sisters. When she was about 13, her father decided that she should be apprenticed to a beastcrafter at the Weyr since she showed aptitude for the craft. She had a hard time parting with them. She left home and was apprenticed. She kept in touch with her family and wrote letters whenever she could. She was asked to stand as a Candidate when she turned 15.
Information about Maisha's dragon
Dragon Name: Meelith
Age: 10 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Hatched 8.11.06.07
Personality: Meelith loves to dream, especially about flying. She knows what she's about. She is not anyone's typical green. She hasn't an ounce of timidity in her, nor is she ruled by her emotions. A quirk in a family of greens, atypical Meelith acts more like a bronze than any other color. It isn't Meelith's appearance that has anything to do with her 'bronze-like' attitude; it is her need to be the best dragon she can be, not just the best
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: She's a quick learner and is eager to try out anything. She's a long distance flier, and has a large amount of stamina, longer than even some browns. She's determined, preferring to try something over and over again, if need be.
