Character type: Healer
Appearance: Beradina is 5'7" tall, and muscular from hard work in the herb-garden. She has short curly blond hair, light green eyes, and her skin is tanned from outdoor work. She tends to put on weight if she doesn't keep active, then swims or jogs to take it off again. She's not one of Nature's athletes --- but a healer should keep healthy, after all.
Personality: Beradina's original happy-go-lucky nature was sadly affected by the attack on her family's hold 11 turns ago. Being already apprenticed at the Healer Hall, she missed the worst impact of the attack. However, she was shocked to see the after-effects when she visited her mother later. She still grieves for her father and brothers.
History: Beradina was born near Alonel Hold at a cothold growing ornamental and medicinal plants. She has one older sister living, and 3 younger half-brothers. Her father and 2 other brothers were killed when renegades attacked their hold, before the beginning of the Pass. Her mother and sister survived because they were away from the Hold at the time, and Beradina was safe at the Healer Hall. Her mother later married a weaver and now lives near Forest Edge Hold with her second family.
