Name Pronounced: T-long A - lee
Appearance: Taaylee's hair is black, long, fine, and straight. Her and her sisters usually have their hair up in runnertails or braids or any other hair trick their mother teaches her and her sisters. Her long black lashes frame vivid blue eyes. Taaylee's face is oval shaped with high cheekbones and delicate features.
Personality: Taaylee is a very bright and talented girl and a little bit devious. She is also cute with signs that she will be a beauty when she is grown. She is bored though because the reading, writing, and numbers the harper teaches are too easy for her. She avoids chores involving other's messes and all work in general other than what she just can't get out of or what she considers worth the time. For instance, being a candidate and the schedule and chores that go with it. Taaylee feels those things are worth her time.

Information about Taaylee's pets
Pet Name: Pathetic (called Pattie)
Pet Type: Gold Firelizard
Appearance: It took a dragonhealer to figure out exactly what color little Pattie was when Taaylee got to Arolos Weyr. It wasn't because of the ghostworms either. Pattie is such a dull gold color that some almost thought she was a runt brown or a deformed bronze. Careful ichor testing revealed the truth. Taaylee had a little wild gold firelizard who came out on the low end of a healthy wild flit. Her egg had been as non-descript as little Pattie is. Pattie's color is a gold that appears like she has a nutbutter spread all over her body. When she is cleaned and oiled, Pattie looks a little better. She is small even for a wild gold.
Personality: When Da came home with the odd egg, Taaylee was disappointed to say the least when the flit that hatched was just as odd as the egg. In her disappointment, Taaylee called the flit Pathetic as a name.
Second Pet Name: Rufus
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: Rufus is a solid black domestic short-haired feline, but he is above average in size and is well muscled. The only places on him that break the solid black are his pink paw pads and the light skin under the black fur plus his yellow-orange eyes..
Personality: Taaylee got Rufus when he was a 6 month old kitten when she moved into her own weyr. He is strictly indoor and she has managed to get him used to being carried in a bag if she needed to take him to the beasthealers. Otherwise, Rufus is the model of an independent, curious, but lazy feline. He enjoys the sun on Zemuuth's ledge, but remains a bit cautious around blue Zemuuth. He will cuddle and nap with Pattie and play games. At night, he and Pattie sleep with Taaylee.
