Character type: Holder
Appearance: 'Retta's about 5'7" tall. She has dark wavy hair half-way down her back, and mid-brown eyes. When she was younger she loved to run about and climb trees, and her dresses often had a rip or two in them, even her good ones. Since injuring her leg, she's had to give up the tree-climbing, but can be surprisingly nimble on her crutch. She can never manage to keep her sun-hat on, so she has a tan and freckles.
Personality: Beretta's independent, stubborn, and contrary-minded. She doesn't see why Tandi should be able to boss her around just because she's two turns older. Bettani's a whole different matter. Beretta adores her bigger sister, who makes cookies, tells good stories, and mends Beretta's clothes before Mom notices the rips in them (at least until she got apprenticed). And when younger she was jealous of her younger brother, having been the baby of the family herself for six turns.
History: Beretta (a.k.a. 'Retta) is the youngest daughter and fourth child of cotholder Brettan and his wife Berandi, a journeywoman tailor. She has two older sisters (Bettani, age 31, and Tandi, age 25) and two brothers (Brand, age 32, and Ettran, age 17). She's long since given up on her dreams of being a dragonrider someday, but hasn't settled into a trade.
