Name Pronounced: NEH-ra
Appearance: Birthdate: 3rd day of the 4th month
Personality: Nera is sharp - that is the best way to describe the mind lurking behind those wide eyes. She has had only the average amount of education for a Pernese girl, and thus does not sound particularly erudite, but she masters new knowledge and new skills quickly. She is particularly clever at creating and repairing small objects and devices, occasionally even seeming to make something from nothing as she assembles or re-creates various cast-off bits into new, functional objects. These objects can be startlingly beautiful in a sleek, function-focused way. This ability stems only partially from formal training, the rest having been developed out of a combination of necessity and a passion for construction. Unfortunately, she is rarely satisfied with her creations - when she looks at them, she mostly overlooks their good qualities and sees only the imperfections and the unwanted compromises and concessions she made regarding materials and construction techniques.
History: Father: Nerald, 44 (deceased)

Second Pet Name: Twinkle
Appearance: Twinkle is an avian of the captive-bred species, weisk. At about 9 inches long, she is of average size for a weisk; her wingspan is also average. Her beak and legs are blue, as is typical for her species. Her plumage is a pale blue-purple across her upper parts, a color much like that of early twilight. There is a band of indigo feathers across her breast, and a scattering of more indigo feathers dot her off-white underparts. The display feathers on her forelegs and her crest are also indigo.
Personality: Twinkle is aloof with just about everyone but Nera and Nera's mate. She sings only for Nera and enjoys having Nera pet her and preen her, though Marina the flit gets pride of place on Nera's shoulder. She will happily sit on either Nera's or Yucanton's arms if they hold them out to her.
