Character type: Healer
Appearance: Tall and statuesque, Vayl has a curvacious body. A bit top heavy, she has a slender waist and gently rounded hips which melt into long,slender legs. Her hair is pale blonde with the lightest hint of red and a pair of Dark, velvety brown eyes dominate a strikingly pretty face.
Personality: Quiet and reserved, Vayl is standoffish around most people she doesn't know, this makes her appear cold and Aloof. This isn't to say she can't have fun..she just tends to hide in the background.There's fire inside this woman which shows in her temper, but its buried under years of abuse. She likes people but tends to be a loner. She's very compassionate and gentle which makes her a competent healer. However, she can listen to someone for hours..this makes her better than merely competent.
History: A Journeyman healer, Vayl's mother, Dionae, was highly sought after for her gentle touch and many times she would travel to the nearby weyr to tend to badly injured riders. Vayl was born approximately 9 months after one of these trips. Dionae's husband, who was a Smith was thrilled with the child and hoped Vayl would be the first of many, not realizing that Vayl was not his blood.
