Name Pronounced: Al-a-ice(as in Alice)
Appearance: A petite and delicately built young woman, who still has very child-like hands. Long strawberry blonde hair hangs down to her waist, a few strands frame a pale toned face. Her face is still quite child-like, yet holds enough sings of maturity so as not to be mistaken for a tall child. Her figure is of a curvy nature but not yet that of a woman that has stopped growing.
Personality: Is a very caring and loving young woman, that is very patient with the children she works with. Along with her patience, she is also firm but not harshly. If she starts to lose her patience, or starts to get angry, she will take some time to go for a walk. When the children are being well behaved and mainly quiet, she has a habit of daydreaming. She will tend to snap when she is extremely tired or irritated. When happy, she likes to tell jokes, and stories, whether true or made up.
History: Her parents and lineage are unknown, perhaps they were riders unwilling or unable to look after a baby. No one knows, but she was taken in by a creche worker, who brought her up as her own. She was very caring, even as a child, taking it onto herself to look after the other children in the creche. She made friends easily, and saw some leave or known some to have died, but this never affected her personality. She was properly taken on as a creche worker when she was 16 turns, when it was noticed that the children responded positively to how she treated them. She enjoys working with the children, yet she watches all the riders and weyrlings, wishing she could be like them.
