Name Pronounced: vahl-EE-sah
Appearance: Long straight dark, almost black, hair, dark blue eyes. Straight nose, long oval face, long eyelashes. Stands about 5'11", has a slender build but isn't super skinny. Skin slightly darker than Caucasian - if someone from our society looked at her, they would think she had some American Indian in her, and possibly some Eastern European to soften the features.
Personality: Friendly. Very, very friendly. Absolutely LOVES people, even if they don't love her. She'll go up to a complete stranger and start chatting them up without being invited. And curious - pokes her nose in where it doesn't belong. Some day her curiosity may get her in trouble. And always looking to do something - not that that is always a good thing. She sees something, and wants to experiment with it - be it cooking, healing, or other things to do with herbs, minerals, and such.
History: Valesa grew up in Verd Hold. Her father was a Healer and her mother was one of the cooks in the kitchens. Somehow, between the two crafts Valesa got interested in the different properties of herbs, spices, minerals, and even mixing colors. She decided that she should probably go into healing, though, since she was very friendly. At least Healers got to see lots of people. One could go days without seeing the kitchen help - even though one knew they were there (otherwise, where would the food be coming from?)

Information about Valesa's dragon
Dragon Name: Elioth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Elioth is a round little dragon, and will remain so. It won't matter how much she does or doesn't eat, her hide will always stretch tightly over her round tummy. It seems as though it should slow her down, but in fact Elioth will take to the air like a dragon born to it.
Personality: She's a fun-loving dragon, and not one inclined to shyness nor to brooding. If there's a group of dragons, she'll be in the centre of it. If there's a party she might well be the one organising it, bouncing about and suggesting new party games. Bear in mind, Elioth thinks EVERY day should be a party. It may be difficult to get her to focus on work.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
