Name Pronounced: coz - cattle
Appearance: Cos is an almost average height, curvily-built young woman of 5’ 6”. She has an oval face which has hazel eyes and a long but not large nose, and a pleasantly wide mouth which dimples her cheeks when she smiles. Dark brown hair, past shoulder length, frames her face without a fringe but waves towards the ends, and the rich colour is a little sun-lightened at the front. Overall she’s a pleasing woman to look at but doesn’t stand out hugely from the crowd. She does like to dress in a feminine style but it conflicts with her craft so she reluctantly wears pants and tunics during the day. Catch her in the evening though and you’ll see her love of ruffles and flowing garments.
Personality: Mostly cheerful, Cos is a bouncy, slightly naďve girl who likes nothing better to look on the bright side of things, no matter how serious they may appear to everyone else. She’s artistic, and good with her hands at pretty much whatever she turns her attention to, although sometimes that practicality conflicts with her love of appealing objects. “Pretty but practical” is something she applies to as much of her life as possible. She’s not quite a people person, preferring to be on the fringes of whatever’s going on instead of in the thick of it, but for someone on the outskirts she can accomplish quite a bit.
History: Eldest daughter of a Mastersmith although not the eldest child, no-one in the extended family thought that the young Cos would have any aptitude for that field but she had an inquiring mind which, coupled with the desire to learn, stood her in good stead in her father’s eyes. Her mother Coszana, a weaver, tried to encourage Cos into the more "womanly" crafts (her mother's words) but although Cos appreciated beauty in clothing and soft furnishings, it was to the smithcraft that she was drawn.
