Name Pronounced: say-kuh
Appearance: Saika everything her sister is not. She's tall, about 5 foot ten, where Kassia is closer to 5'4". She's more curvy, sporting a chest that would make more than a fair few women envious, where as Kassia as still adequate but not so gifted. She has golden-blond hair with none of the red tones to it to make the color darker and those rich strands fall to the middle of her back. She is pale, the legacy of living her life at Fort Weyr, and she'll have to be careful to stay indoors to keep herself from burning constantly.
Personality: Saika is very much the product of her mother's upbringing of her. She learned early on from her mother that being nice to people outside of her family gets you nothing worth while. There was a system to play if you want anything done or any respect and play it she must. She has a twisted sense of what is right and what is wrong, and most of what is wrong is almost anything that her mother and 'uncle' Vinke don't approve of. Whether she inherited her mother's manipulative streak or whether it was taught to her through her lessons is unkown, but she has very much seized on that side of herself and uses it to her advantage. She has an uncanny way in general of reading other people and knowing her own self and this only helps her towards trying to manipulate a lot of the people that she meets.
History: From the moment Saika was conceived there was trouble. Her mother, Kasai, was goldrider Kassia's birth mother and after the perceived abandonment of her (then) only child, she pulled up roots and had a letter sent stating that she had committed suicide for the sheer purpose of further destroying the girl that had been her support until then. After resettling back in Fort Hold Kasai immediately found a a young Harper who fell for her 'charms'. Long story short, Saika was born and just two turns later her father transferred away from Fort Hold to get away from Kasai's clinginess and mental and verbal abuse.
Information about Saika's dragon
Dragon Name: Yarventh
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Personality: Bursting from her shell this light peridot green looks ready to take on the world and what ever else the universe might have to throw at her. From the beginning this compact green gives the impression of being much smaller then she really is. Perhaps it is the odd glossier appearance of her wingsails, to the dark apple green that starts at the tip of her muzzle, flows up over her eye ridges and end at the tips of her headknobs.
