Name Pronounced: par-ROH-vah
Appearance: Parrova stands at 5'10'', taller than her mother by a full five inches and tall enough that she can hold her own with her brothers and father. She has a very athletic build, with slight curves and not much in the department of womanly attributes. She's too slim to be well-endowed, but wears what features she has with flirtatious confidence. Her body is toned and muscular without looking manly; she inherited her father's penchant for constant activity as well as his good metabolism. Even with Turns of dragonriding, she's not likely to bulk up much at all, instead maintaining a smoother display of muscular fitness.
Personality: Parrova is a bit of an enigma, but there are several facets of her personality that are fairly static: She has a hot temper (like her father), she is fiercely loyal, and she is STUBBORN. These three things can be counted on. The rest tends to shift slightly depending on the situation.
History: Parrova spent fifteen Turns at Benden Weyr as the middle child of At'myr and Cipavkla. The family was very close for her childhood Turns, and remained that way for all of her young life. How she views a female's place came from watching her mother and she joined the same craft for the same reason. She apprenticed into the Harpercraft and found her talent laid along the path of stringed instruments.
Information about Parrova's pets
Pet Name: Pip
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: Born 8.17.12.03
Personality: Pip seems to know that his job is to assure the safety of those around him. He's an observant canine, watching everything around him for anything out of place, and it won't take him long to determine who is and isn't welcome. Those unfamiliar to him will be greeted with a bark, and if they continue before a family member acknowledges him, he'll growl and do his best to keep them away. Protective to a fault, he won't distinguish between an argument and a heated debate, and he'll stop both by placing himself between Parrova and the other guilty party and giving a warning growl. At first, he'll be reluctant to be playful, but as a little time goes by and nothing terrible happens while he's having fun, he'll loosen up.
Second Pet Name: Tempest
Pet Type: Gold Firelizard
Appearance: (Won in 8.20.--.-- Harper Open) Hatched 22.214.171.124
Personality: Tempest is fierce, that's one way to put it. She isn't necessarily bossy, it's just that she often seems to end up bossing whether she intended to or not. It's not her fault that her ideas are the best. She is very physical and especially enjoys having her eye ridges scratched. She's very strong-willed and has a temper to rival the summer storms. If she doesn't like you, you'll know, and only a good amount of training will teach her that scratches and bites are very inappropriate methods of dealing with her displeasure. Even so, Parrova and any errant flits around her are likely to earn their share of painful nips.
Third Pet Name: Requiem
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: (Born 8.21.3. 9)
Personality: Independence...that's what Requiem's all about and she doesn't like anyone trying to ruin her day with silly things like attention or treats. She is not the kind of feline to ever occupy a lap or be found purring happily on Parrova's chest in the morning; her expressions of love will come as little dead presents, and she'll bring them frequently.
