Name Pronounced: Ez-may
Appearance: Esmei is nothing shy of beautiful. And she knows it. This young woman is rather tall for her age, with a slenderness marred only by her lovely curves; curves which seem to just keep making themselves ever more prevalent thanks mainly in part to her recent pregnancy and birth. Esmei has curly pale brown hair, although the occasional red highlights throughout are what make it obvious that she is, in fact, not blond. Full lips and a dainty nose round out her facial features nicely, giving Esmei her trademark pretty appearance. Her eyes, although a lovely shade of hazel, are much too large for her dainty face, giving her a, more often than not, tragically comical expression. Aside from this, the only thing that truly haunts her about her appearance, would be the skin condition, that has made itself known in recent turns, in which the skin on her arms, legs, and sometimes on her back and chest, turns red and begins to flake. Esmei is desperately searching for a cure to her 'serious' condition.
Personality: This young woman is, for lack of a nicer word, a bitch. Plain and simple. Sure, many other derogatory words also fit when describing Esmei, but this one seems to sum them all up nicely. Esmei is selfish. She is conceited. She is cocky, arrogant, egotistical, and she MUST be the center of attention whenever there are others around. Not only these, but Esmei could likely single handedly repopulate Pern should a plague wipe out every other female capable of child bearing in existence; so promiscuous she is. Despite these attributes, however, Esmei has a loving adoration for babies, or, more specifically, baby animals. So long as she doesn't have to care for them, of course.
History: Born to holders near Southern Boll Hold, Esmei was the second daughter, four turns Eile's junior, to Eamon and Ailish. Childhood was a breeze for the young girl, only made better when she discovered a talent for harpering at an early age.
