Name Pronounced: Soh-suh-lee
Appearance: Sosalee got her height honestly from her father. She reaches 5'9" and is now working on filling out the frame that she claims is gangly. From head to toe, she cuts a striking figure. Her long legs taper up to a narrow waist, by some standards too narrow as the girl hasn't begun to fill out yet and exercises often. Then comes her flat chest that shows signs of some development and medium length neck.
Personality: Sosalee is a tough one. If you thought her father was a hard person, you've not met her. The way she looks at it, she was dumped into her fostermother's hands, loved, then left alone. So, she didn't cry about it. She made something of herself and took care of her life. As a result, she can be a bit hard to get to know unless she's interested in some of the same things and meets someone that way. She's also very cautious, born from years of wondering who was a member of the Resistance, what had happened to her friends, and if she had drawn attention to herself.
History: Sosalee was born the child of G'yoshi, brownrider of Fort Weyr and Semilla, a greenrider of Fort Weyr. She was the product of a mating flight and knew it from the start. Her mother was always busy caring for her dragon and everything else, as was her father. Sosalee was either in the creche or on her own, so when she was 4 turns, the decision was made to foster her. Her foster mother, Hyacinth, raised her from then on.
Information about Sosalee's pets
Pet Name: Gigi
Pet Type: Dolphin
Appearance: Gigi is a bottlenose, with a sleek body, that's now a bit gravid due to nursing. She has a group of small scratches beneath her left dorsal fin from scraping it against a reef. She's about 4'3" long from nose to tail tip. She's a light grayish blue in color, but white underneath on her belly and underfins, as well as below her bottom lip.
Personality: Gigi is a very active dolphin, enjoying swims with Sosalee. She also enjoys games, like ringtoss, tossball, and find the stick underwater. She's a quick learner and very observant as well, though. The main thing that stands out to Sosalee about her friend is that Gigi's brave. She comes right up to dragons and other men if they have food in their hands.
Second Pet Name: Farryl
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Farryl is a dark green, almost to where she looks like a dark blue or black. She's lean and on the small side for her color, though she is assuredly full grown. Her eyes are usually slow whirling as she pays attention to what's around her and her pet. Her hide is kept immaculate, especially since she swims often.
Personality: She's usually calm, but when aggravated about something, she'll just ignore whatever it is until it gets in her face. She's also not beyond clawing or biting softly if she feels she or Sosalee is genuinely threatened. She follows her pet's instructions easily, though from time to time when she gets angry about something, she might disappear for days on end.
