Name Pronounced: Air-ain-uh
Appearance: Brown hair and blue eyes are the major traits that Erena shares with her family. Otherwise, one would need several hours to make the connection, for she shares little with her family when it comes to her other aspects. On the underside her left arm is a ragged scar, stretching from just below her elbow to the side of her arm, roughly the length of the index finger. Her skin is darkened and callused from many days spent out in the sun. Erena's eyes are an unusual blue color, having that sometimes seen rather cloudy quality. An intriguing aspect of Erena is her facial features – she rarely shows how she is feeling, and sometimes the emotion she does show does not accurately reflect how she is feeling. Overall, Erena’s outside appearance reflects the emotionally-tried and hardened person inside. Abnormities aside, Erena is actually a rather average person physically: niether short nor tall, niether skinny nor fat.
Personality: Erena owes much of her personality to the prejudices of the people she was raised around and because of it spends almost too much of her time trying to be accepted the only way she knows how – doing all possible to help. However, Erena’s helpfulness only extends so far – one would be hard-pressed to see her showing exceeding compassion. However, she will never fail to go to the assistance of someone in dire need of it. Otherwise, she keeps to herself, brooding and silent. Her more frequent moods are fueled by frustration and aggression that she has a hard time dealing with, mostly because she never learned how to. She is a very confused person, trying to find herself while at the same time hiding herself from others emotionally. She feigns confidence in uncertain situations, and is rarely one to forget a grudge. In summary, she is an almost apathetic person due to a very low-self-esteem.
History: After Erena's birth in Callemere Beast Hold, she was raised in a somewhat pleasant environment. But it was not to be, as tragedy struck when sudden illness claimed her mother when she was only five years of age. Her father was responsible enough to raise her on his own, though he was not always present and had a great deal of trouble dealing with his own grief over the death. Because of this, Erena spent much of her free time running about the Hold, sometimes getting underfoot in the process.
Information about Erena's pets
Pet Name: Suda
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: Always a small creature, Suda is a gray tabby that is shorter and thinner than many of his kind. His green eyes constantly watch the people around him, as though he were paying attention to them.
Personality: Though not the sweetest creature, Suda is very alert, and at times aggressive. Attentive as he is, he always knows when his simple companionship is the best remedy. He is rather smart for a feline in this way, though his attitude sometimes reflects that of a bossy human.
