Name Pronounced: Or gra
Appearance: Orgra is a tiny woman. She wears her long white hair in a braid that reaches her knees and her bright green eyes snap with life. Orgra considers her collection of smile lines and wrinkles badges of honor. Her skin is tanned dark from her decades of dragon riding.
Personality: Orgra is lively and witty. She has a zest for life that is rare. She does not, however, have any hesitation in telling people exactly what she thinks of them. She has no filter. Everything that enters her mind comes out through her mouth, and she does not care who she says it to. She will criticize everyone, even the Weyrleader. She also uses her long braid to her advantage. She will turn her head quickly and "accidentally" hit people who annoy her in the face. This old lady is not all meanness though. She truly has a loving heart and will go out on a limb for people, though she will grumble about it the whole time. She loves to laugh. She also enjoys flirting with the young men in the Weyr, though they know she isn't serious. Mostly.
History: Orgra was born in High Reaches Weyr and Impressed her green Bellasarath when she was 16. Shortly after, she met and fell in love with R'sta, a brown rider. They shared 55 turns together and had four children and 12 grandchildren. R'sta did not live to see his first great grandchild. Following a long bout of illness he was taken between by his brown. Orgra only stayed at High Reaches long enough to see the first year of her first great grandchild's life. She transferred to Arolos to "help her old bones", but really she was running from the memories of her beloved R'sta. She never took another weyrmate after his death, though she is not above an occasional dalliance.
