Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Fairly tall at 5'9" and curvy you will always pick Mellara out in a crowd. She has middle-length black wavy hair that is always scraped back from a pretty face with too large olive eyes and large lips. Her nose is spattered with freckles and she has a scar on her ear from a piercing experiment gone wrong. she has slightly flat feet so has to wear insoles insode her boots and her hands are a little too big but slender so as they look in proportion.
Personality: Mellara is gentle and kind to anyone who returns the sentiment but if you cross her you will see how imposing she can be. She stands up for what she believes in but will try her best to see other points of view. She can be a bit of a flirt if around a friendly man but anyone arrogant just turns her cold. She has a head for tactics but can be very impatient at times and does have a tendency to get..ahem..pre-menstrual. She's strong but compassionate, and would make a good leader.
History: Mellara has always been a no-nonsense kinda girl. As a adolescent she was never interested in looking pretty or being especially attractive to men. She found that men actually made much better companions and, to the despair of her elder sister (very much a girl) tore around with Tamaris, her best friend exactly one turn elder than herself. They would get into all sorts of trouble usually caused by Mellara and then smoothed over with the adults by Tamaris. Then, when Mellara was almost 17 she and Tamaris were hiding in the barn away from a gather-dance celebration when he leaned over and kissed her. More than a little startled by this and not wanting to ruin her friendship with Tamaris, Mellara laughed it off and carried on as though nothing had happened, desperately trying to sort her own feelings out. Tamaris also regretted the kiss but had felt for Mellara for quite some time. Perhaps if The strong-willed girl hadn't been searched things would have gone further but they didn't. Naturally her parents were thrilled when she was searched and urged her to move to the weyr for the next hatching. Goodbyes were tearful as to lose one's lifelong friend is a wrench but with any luck Mellara will gain the closest friend of her life in not too long a time.
