Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: The younger of the pair, Liara looks very similar to her older sister, though there are enough differences in their features to clearly establish that the two are not identical twins, with long dirty blond hair, dark green eyes, and skin colored a dark tan by the bright Istan sun. Like her sister, Liara is slightly taller than average, though she is slightly taller than Liasa at 5'7" in height, something that Liara feels incredibly guilty about. Liara's features are very similar to her sisters, and she has a long, oval face which is quite pretty. However, while Liasa tends towards an healthy, active beauty rather than the fragile kind, Liara has a definite delicate trend to her features, serving to help differentiate herself from her sister but which does not detract from her overall beauty. Liara's body is very fit from all the outdoor activities she engages in, and her body is lean and covered in ropy muscle. She has a figure that complements her lifestyle, neither being buxom or underdeveloped, but with proportions that look just right on her body. Unlike her sister, Liara enjoys wearing feminine clothing such as simple dresses, often with accessories such as ribbons or pieces of jewelery, though she usually sticks to wearing the simple, functional clothing that her sister prefers. Like her older sister Liasa, Liara idolizes her oldest sister, Kiadria, who raised Liasa, Liara and the rest of their siblings after their mother died like she was their mother herself, and will do anything the older woman asks of her without question.
Personality: Liara's personality is dramatically different from her sister's, one of the few things that are noticeably different between the two. Whereas her older sister Liasa is outgoing, stubborn, and pushy, always seeking out new situations and people and pushing her way into them with an almost physical intensity, Liara is hesitant, apprehensive, and timid, more than content to remain in her sister's shadow while Liasa makes every one of the decisions regarding both of their lives. However, Liasa never even once takes Liara for granted, and always makes sure to ask her sister's opinion before making any final decision, and whenever Liara is hesitant or afraid to give one, always patiently draws her shyer sister out and gets her to express her thoughts. This has led to Liara depend extensively upon her sister for her support in any social situation they both undertake, almost never speaking or doing anything else before Liasa does, and since Liasa and Liara do every last thing together, this has forced Liara to rely almost completely on her sister for any kind at all of social interaction - without Liasa's presence, Liara is overcome by shyness, and unable to either move or speak in front of other people, completely incapable of taking care of herself. It remains to see if Liara will ever develop the self-confidence to speak up for herself, but as long as Liasa is always around her, it seems unlikely. Like her older sister Liasa, Liara idolizes her oldest sister, Kiadria, who raised Liara, Liasa and the rest of their siblings after their mother died like she was their mother herself, and will do anything the older woman asks of her without question.
Information about Liara's pets
Pet Name: Beedi
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: A large green by any measure, easily overlapping in size with the smaller blue flits of even wild heritage, a somewhat unfortunate turquoise shading and a masculine appearance to her build and features makes Beedi even resemble a blue in outward appearance, and in fact that is what the poor green is almost always mistaken for by those who see her for the first time -- a blue of a somewhat small size and unfortunate coloring. Yet, despite her appearance, Beedi *is* a green flit, and she's got the required anatomy to prove it, though this is a fact that is generally ignored by the humans that she meets. In addition to all that, she looks virtually identical to her blue clutchbrother Pebble, owned by Liara's sister Liasa, further complicating an already complicated situation a great deal.
Personality: Unlike her Pet, Beedi is extremely pushy and outgoing, always going straight out and doing whatever she wants, which usually entails socializing with other people or animals and playing with their things. She tends to be hyperactive, always moving around and ruthlessly fast in the air. She's very vocal, but oddly generally expresses herself only in low chitters, as if the large green is talking to herself, which she likes to do almost constantly. Though Beedi is pushy, aggressive and stubborn in her dealings with the world, just before she makes any decision, she tends to hesitate, fly up into the air, and make small circles in the air for as long as five minutes at a stretch, chittering in an undertone all the while.

Personality: From the very start things that make noises will fascinate this dark green dragon with light dots all over her body. Nicely sounding things like bells or singing or musical instruments will fascinate her. But so too will the sound of a hammer and chisel or thunder or nails against message slates.
