Name Pronounced: eem-EES
Appearance: Emese is usually seen huffing and puffing about, as if she had just finished a run -- she's active and it shows through her sporty figure. With no real curves to speak of, wide shoulders, and long, coltish legs, she resembles a cross between a Terran stickbug and a runner. In height, she's around 5'10" (1.77 meters), which is, to her, tall enough to make the other girls gawk and the boys look away, and that's a-okay by her!
Personality: Emese means well, she's optimistic, and she exudes a warmness few her age possess -- but she talks too much. She wants to be in everyone's business, if only out of an almost obsessive need to mother all Weyrfolk in her immediate vicinity. In a fight with your loved one? Need to know how to find a good lady or man? Emmy will give you advice -- no, Emmy WILL give you advice, in the form of one of her mother's totally inane clichés. She's heard "butt out" more times in her life than there are weeds on Pern.
History: The middle child of what would eventually be nine -- nine! -- at Forest Edge Hold, Emese felt, for the majority of her life, like a grey smudge on the wall. Her parents -- a Weaver and a Woodcrafter -- meant well and were kindly enough people, but they generally passed her over for their oldest sons or the baby of the family. In her early years, she tried hard to be close to her mother, whom she adored for her practical intelligence and eccentric clichés; her mother, in turn, enjoyed her presence, but never had much time for her.
