Name Pronounced: mend-uhl
Appearance: While Mendl is younger than her sister, Kalla, she is taller - about 5'7" (and will have one more growth spurt so her final height would be 5'9"). She is also whip-thin - about 125lbs, but most of that is muscle so she looks like she weighs less. Her eyes are grey-blue, and her hair is a dark chestnut brown. She has a long face, which makes her look even taller. It also makes her eyes look huge, giving her a waif-like look.
Personality: Mendl is so sweet and nice that one thinks she's the most naive person on the planet. Don't let that fool you - she's sharper than she looks, but people underestimate her. Even when she tries to set them straight, so she has finally given up on changing people's impressions of her. If it makes them happy, so be it. She learns quickly, and has a good memory.
History: Mendl grew up with her older sister, Kalla, and younger sister, Kylie, at Forest Edge Hold. Kalla went into the Healercraft, but Mendl had a soft spot for animals so went into the Beastcraft. She really wants to go into dragonhealing, but knows that in order to do that she needs to go to the Weyr. But, now that her sister has been Searched, Mendl is hoping that she can be Searched, also. And will do anything she can to be considered for candidacy.
Information about Mendl's pets
Pet Name: Eysis
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Eysis is the green of a terran luna moth, and has almost the same markings. Mendl acquired her when she was much younger - at ten Turns - and named her Eysis because, as she said, "her eyes is on the back of her wings." Since the flit didn't seem to care about the name, it stuck.
Personality: One would think Eysis was a gold instead of a green, the way she bosses other flits around. But she dotes on her pet, and is even helpful in her trade: when Mendy needs something - gauze, needles, suture thread - she will go get it for her pet.
Mendl is a candidate. Her colour preference is Gold, Green, Blue
