Character type: Renegade
Appearance: Pyra is quite exotic looking. Standing 5 ft 6 inches tall, she is of fairly average height. She has a good figure, although she gains weight easily. She has worked hard to stay in shape and is in excellent physical condition. Pyra has an (almost) unconscious grace. She is fast, agile, and flexible. She is very good at being stealthy and not being seen when she doesn't want to be.
Personality: Pyra is full of barely contained energy. She is always on the go. She is adventurous and loves exploring. Pyra isn't afraid to take risks and isn't easily intimidated. She loves doing and seeing new things. She enjoys travelling. Pyra is very curious. She is also very courageous.
History: Pyra's mother died when she was born, so she never got to know her. Her father, who was a Holder at Ista, refused to speak of her and removed all traces of his wife from the house. He turned to drinking to dull his pain. Though he was fairly well-to-do for a Cotholder, he didn't hire anyone to help out around the house and rarely did any of the chores himself. So it fell to Pyra to look after things as best she could.
