Name Pronounced: SAY-pee-uh
Appearance: Seapia has hit her full height, thankfully, at 5ft9 and has a large frame and build and is a very big woman. She has a very large chest which means she has to have support made into her clothes or she suffers horrible back pain. She has light bronze skin from time travelling under the sun and heavily calloused hands from working with leather for so long.
Personality: Who says big girls can't be feminine? You'll almost never see Seapia in trousers unless there is a need and she likes to look her best when she's not in a Tannery. When she is in a Tannery it's all about health, safety and comfort.
History: (Born: Prepass – 2 turns, 10th month, 14th day) Born at Telgar Weyr to Rider parents, Seapia is the third child of five. Her mother, Karlaine, is a Greener, as is her father, Otukai. She, like her siblings, spent much time in the crèche but was looked after by her parents as much as possible. They were all well educated and expected to think about what they wanted to do when they were older. Each child was taught how to care for Dragons and they were all expected to help wash and oil their parents Green's every so often. Their parents wanted them to have all the options available to them, regardless of their gender. Each child was, when they approached their twelfth birthing day, expected to choose an area to go into when they were old enough. All but Seapia, chose to try for Candidacy. Seapia went into Tanner Crafting instead.
Information about Seapia's pets
Pet Name: Onifur
Pet Type: Runner
Appearance: Onifur is a large runner, he would have to be for Seapia to ride him. He's well built and strong enough to even take a pack or two along with his large mare (Seapia). He is mostly a deep red in colour with a pure white mane and tail with the occasional blobs of yellow on his flanks and rump. Though he is mostly built for steady, long distance travel, Onifur can put on a surprising turn of speed when needed. When not loaded down with packs or Seapia he can be very fast, though much of that is actually due to his long stride.
Personality: Little phases this runner. He's been with his mare, Seapia, since she bought him in High Reaches. They have travelled a lot together and she's never neglectful of him. Onifur likes very few people and is happy to dish out a bite every now and then. This means that few people want to go near him despite his appearance, which can be quite a draw. Though, if you are one of the few brave enough to go near this big horse you will find him quite amiable after only a short time spent with him. He responds very well to those who treat him nicely and even better to those who feed him sweet things.
Information about Seapia's dragon
Dragon Name: Terribeth
Age: She had ne
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Bright, blockish green, there are few shades to this dragon. The colour you get is the colour you get whether you like it or not. But Terribeth is a small green that just gives off an air of helplessness. She'll continue to look like a bit babyish around the edges long into her adult life and it'll just make her look terribly, terribly sweet.
Personality: Don't be fooled, though. Terrible is the right word for her. Because like a lot of small, sweet looking girls, she's a terror that'll take you for what you're worth. Constantly trying to get her own way, regardless of whether it's good for her or not, her rider is going to need to be disciplined with her, or this young dragon will never go to bed on time. She'll say she doesn't want to be a bother, oh no, but she's not being entirely truthful. She wants to see what she can get away with, and how far she can push.
