Character type: Harper
Appearance: The first thing that women tend to notice about Derook is that a love of sweet things has left her "pleasingly plump", with a fair amount of far spread over her body.
Personality: Derook is one of those people who seem full of life, constantly full of enthusiasm for whatever she's working on. Her specialization is in history - finding and recording the details of important events that have occured in Pern's recent history. It is important afterall, that some things are remembered.
History: Derook took up apprenticeship fairly late in life at sixteen, after suddenly deciding she didn't want to marry the Holder-boy she was betrothed to afterall, and suddenly needing a profession other than "Holder's wife"
