Character type: Other
Personality: Loud mouth, brassy, saucy and sweet, Manduh is all those things and much more. She's a vibrant person that can bring life to a dull party. She's a bossy woman that can exact order in a rowdy bar with her commanding shout and big stick. Manduh is saucy and she won't hesitate to strut her stuff on top of tables putting on a little skin show for all, or she'll settle in a warm lap and wiggle. Manduh is also very sweet. She has a heart of gold beneath her rather rough exterior. And while she doesn't wear her feelings on her sleeves, she does have them, and in private she indulges in a bit of self-pity every now and again especially now that the bloom of her youth has faded considerably.
History: Born in Arolos Hold, Manduh was raised by her mother. Why not her father as well? Because her father was a seacrafter and always out to sea. It was a good childhood. Her mother was a strong woman that didn't mind taking care of the small hold in the main hold. She was a weaving woman that had no rank at all, taught by her mother who was taught by her mother and so on. She taught all three of her daughters how to weave but Manduh never had a love of it and as soon as she could she changed professions.
