Character type: SeaCrafter
Appearance: Danna has blue eyes and blonde hair cut fairly short. At 5'9", she is slim and graceful. Her face is quite pretty in repose. She prefers clothes that allow her freedom of movement, but will wear a dress for special occasions.
Personality: Danna has always been overshadowed by her pushy elder sister Nankara. Their parents made much of Nankara as their first-born, but when Danna came along they'd hoped for a boy, and didn't pay her much attention. When Kardan finally arrived, they made such a fuss over him that Danna decided she wanted to be a boy, and started running around with the boys of the Hold. Mocked by Nankara, she was glad to be apprenticed to a different craft. Unfortunately her cousin Baroda was also at the Seacrafters' Hall, and teased her when she got the chance.
History: Danna was born the younger daughter of Dannan, the heir to a medium-size hold in Igen. When her father died her brother Kardan was too young to hold, so the title passed to an uncle. The following turn her mother, Karenna, remarried, and the family moved, 12 turns ago, to a small but productive hold near Dollanol Hold in the Arolos Protectorates.
