Name Pronounced: Am-Priss
Appearance: The most striking thing about Ampriss is her hair. Truly, it is the meaning of the word “red” and is so rich and dark in that color that at first impression, most assumed it has been dyed. Long and straight, it is usually cut to shoulder length with occasional braids on either side of her face to keep her bangs out of her vision.
Personality: Most people with stutters are inherently shy, but this is not the case with Ampriss. A woman with a strong presence about her, she will not hesitate to tell someone off… even if it does take her a few minutes to do it. In the birthing room, she demands complete authority.
History: Ampriss grew up the sixth child out of twelve siblings in the moderately prominent Lizard Ridge Hold, located near Fort Hold. Her father was head of the hold, and because her mother had so many tasks to include, and so many children to attend too, the care of Ampriss mostly went to a nanny.
