Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Naamah bares a noticeable resemblance to her cousin Eponia, but it is not quite striking. Naamah’s cheeks are more rounded, and her chin is not as strong. Her hair's soft strawberry blond color is starting to darken to a delicate brown as she ages. It still goes down to her tailbone, like a good hold girl’s, and is often bound in a braid. She might cut it though, she's very busy nowadays. Naamah’s eyes are as wide as her cousin’s, but they are overshadowed slightly by the roundness of her face. Mellow greens and blues swirl like watercolors in her eyes. The diluted colors make her eyes look almost translucent at times, and she’ll never be able to glare effectively. Her eyelashes are long and curling, but seem to be made to hide gazes under rather then framing them. Her eyebrows have a sweet and coy shape, like two little crescents, and they are perfectly combed. Her face is also “enhanced”, as her mother puts it, with the meticulous use of paints and powders. Naamah stands at 5’4”, but is good at appearing smaller. Her figure filled out considerably during her pregnancy, it's gotten somewhat chubby. She's hoping she'll slim down once she gets back to active service.
Personality: It is not that Naamah has no desires or emotions, it is just they seem to run up against something, and dissipate. Her heart is a bit like a glow basket that is screwed shut, even though the glows are fresh and luminous. She has a strong latent curiosity, which got her in trouble often in her early years, before she learned to suppress it. There was a time when she would listen in rapture to the fantastic tales her cousin Eponia told her, before the two sides of the family stopped visiting. She has a well of unexpressed romanticism. She enjoys drama immensely, even that in her own life.
History: Naamah’s mother, Carli, was born in Southern Boll. She was one of two identical twins, her sister being Carlta. They also had an older brother Garzat, and a younger one named Fiolyd. The girls where always very different, Carlta was a intelligent individualist, and Carli was a cultured socialite. Neither of them ever deeply resented the other, above the normal sisterly disputes. They rather enjoyed each other, actually. Their mother would throw a party and while Carli worked the crowd, Calta would debate with the Crafters. The attack on their familial happiness came in three prongs. First, when Carlta’s family realized she didn’t want to marry at Master, she wanted to become one. Second, when the family’s beloved baby boy, Fiolyd, impressed a /green/ dragon. The final and worst blow, especially to the bond of the two sisters, was the arrival of the man who would be Naamah’s father, Nemic. He swept Carli off her feet, and straight to Fort Hold, a home with “good moral values” where he was a minor holder. He was well liked by the Lord Holder. Carlta though he was swine, and Carli thought she was just jealous because “no man would love her.”
Information about Naamah's pets
Pet Name: Amun
Pet Type: Callamere Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: Amun is a large, lordly firelizard. He has thick musclature which balances out his long torso and legs, making him seem well proportioned. His little head-nubs curl inward slightly, looking not unlike the new nobs on the head of a baby ram. His hide is a dark brownish bronze, with a cool metalic gleam and almost no red tones.
Personality: The big bronze usually thinks he's right about everything, which wouldn't be so infuriating if it weren't often true. He's a very observant, reasonable creature. One blind-spot he has is emotions, to which he is surprisingly oblivious, for a flit. If somebody cries, because they are sad, he will assume they are injured.
Information about Naamah's dragon
Dragon Name: Bronth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: Bronth is the color of patina-covered copper. The mottled shades of jade and pale emerald have a distinct metallic glean to them, but are not shiny. However, when she is cleaned and oiled her hide looks like velvet. Bronth has beautiful auqamarine sparks on her snout, feet, and the very tip of her tail. She is a medium sized green. Her wings are a bit broader than normal, and bare exquisite swirls of teal. She is graceful in the air and in the water, but she moves on land like a drunken rabbit.
Personality: Bronth is a hopeless romantic, and a constant daydreamer. She thinks well in abstracts, but often muddles small practicalities in real-life situations. She always trips over the details, but reads patterns easily. In Falls, for example, she can tell in a second what formation a wing is moving into or out of, but must think carefully about what movements that entails for her.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Because of the broadness of her wings, she is not quite as fast as the smaller greens, slower even that most of the medium ones who have narrower wings. She makes up for it with better endurance and the ability to think ahead, since she can't act as instantaneously.
