Character type: Candidate
Appearance: Aria has curly, so curly that it is almost frizzy, light brown hair with hints of qolden blonde. Her hair is darker (and more wavy rather than curly) at the top and it lightens as it goes down due to exposure to the sun. She has green eyes which sometimes appear either brown-green (hazel) or blue-green (aqua) depending on the lighting. She has a very pretty face and figure. Although she lacks any large amounts of muscle and appears delicate, she does have some strength to her from helping her father in the Hold with crops and learning to play the drums loud enough for message purpose. Her looks have proved very deceptive. Aria is of short stature (around 5'2-4"ish, but she doesn't let anyone measure her hight) and has a thin, agile body. Her hands are well shaped with thin, slightly callused, fingers from her life of playing stringed instruments.
Personality: Aria is a very intelligent girl with a love of music, adventure, and family. She is extremly loyal and expects the same loyalty in others. She is straightforward in her words and actions, never caring who knows what she thinks or is doing. This is not to say that she is not a private girl, she just cares little about what others might think of her. Although she grew up an only child, Aria was not as coddled as some children are wont to be (this suits her because she will not be an only child for much longer as her mother was pregnant when Aria was Searched).
History: Aria grew up in a small Hold, by Fort Hold and the Harpercraft Hall, that her father, Aeruel, is Holder to. Her mother, Raralore, is a Journeyman Harper who discontinued her studying to marry a young Holder who farmed his lands at the age of 20. Since Aria grew up with a JM Harper for a mother and the Harpercraft Hall not to far away she was given a love, and feel, of music very early on. Aria's first words were to a lulaby that her mother sung to her. Even before she was old enough to be an apprentice, Aria could be found in the halls of the Harpercraft Hall just to listen to the music. All these things prepared her and aided her in rushing through her apprenticeship and on to the rank of Journeyman very quickly. Aria's mother was so proud of her daughter that she purchased a Callamere firelizard egg while in the South (Aria's mother was there because her sister, who had been Searched a few years before and went to the Weyr, but didn't Impress and decided to live there instead, was getting married) that she presented her with when she became a Journeyman Harper. The egg hatched a beautiful blue firelizard.
