Name Pronounced: d yar la
Appearance: Dyarla is a willowy sort of girl still awkward and growing, but showing promise of being pretty in her own way once she gets there. She stands around 5’2 at the moment with most of her baby fat gone and the start of the muscles most candidates seem to acquire starting to show on her. For the most part she takes more after her mother than her father with pale skin and even a hint of freckles that hardly ever fades due to the Igen sun always trying to burn her. Her hair is a light brown with slight hints of red in the right light that she tries to keep somewhere between her shoulders and the middle of her shoulderblades. The only real bit of her appearance that came from her father are her darker blue eyes.
Personality: Ever since she was little Dyarla has held her big sister up as the most amazing person ever that she wants to be just like. She has grown up some over the turns, but she still maintains that her oldest sister is awesome. This means that Dyarla ends up acting like Dyrina frequently, or at least trying too. She’s a bright and fun loving girl who learned early on the meaning of the word ‘no’. If she doesn’t like something she will be letting you know no matter who you are and good luck trying to change her mind on what ever that may be. Life was meant to be lived, or so Dyarla learned from watching Dyrina, and she’ll take full advantage of that at any time. If she sees something she wants she is all to happy to go for it weather that be someone it looks fun to talk to or something she wants to have. She’s learned after all that: “You can’t get what you don’t ask for” and puts it to good practice.
History: Born to a pair of greenriders Dyarla had the average childhood of one who was born in a Weyr to rider parents. She saw both her parents from time to time in her early turns, but it was her big sister Dyrina that she truly got a chance to bond with and once she was old enough to do soon realized, or at least decided, that that her big sister was the most awesome person she had ever met and she was going to be just like her! So started Dyarla’s early life of trailing after Dyrina and trying emulate her older half sister.
Information about Dyarla's pets

Appearance: (bonded to her after her father L'yar's death in the 22nd turn)
Personality: A creature of habit describes this flit beautifully. Once he gets use to a pattern in his pet's life he will follow it strictly, and if his pet should ever change the pattern for any reason they can expect a lot of "Humphs" and stomps out of him. Oh yes he stomps, hops up and down on things, and snaps his wings when he is angry or upset like he is throwing a temper tantrum. His pet will have to have a firm hand with him from time to time, but for his tantrums he is a very protective and loving flit.
