Character type: Other
Appearance: Ethuuria is a hunched woman, one that uses a cain to get around. Her slightly grayed auburn hair is tied back in a bun while she stands about five feet of her total five feet, four inches of height. This hasn't stopped her from working. She is still a sharp woman and her dark brown eyes catch just about everything which comes past her firmly set features. Her lips are constantly narrowed into a disapproving line.
Personality: Ethuuria is an alert woman. She can catch just about anything that is going on around her, no matter how much other things are going on. She is very auditorily based and she is quite proud of it, nearly as pleased about that as she is about how much she actually knows. Ethuuria is a motherly woman, capable of caring but still firm when dealing with naughty trespassers. People shouldn't get in her way for she will be perfectly willing to brandish knives at them. Not that she would ever use them on anyone undeserving. Ethuuria tends to be a fair woman...with a soft spot for any kid coming around looking for food. She can talk their ears off with little cute stories. Her believe though is that people are people.
History: Ethuuria was Weyrborn. She grew up like any Weyrbrat at Ista Weyr until the day she became a Candidate at the age of twelve. Two turns later she Impressed blue Hidrynth. That was a life she was happy with, growing up as a dragonrider with her specially little blue until Hidrynth started flying a green occasionally. That was interesting too. She was young, she was curious. And then one day visiting friends at FEH, Hidrynth was caught in a sudden change of wind that had his wing being snapped and the blue crashed. Hidrynth was doomed not to make it before he could get help and the blue *betweened* leaving Ethuuria behind.
