Name Pronounced: gay-leesh
Appearance: Geillis' skin is a light caramel color, not black like her father's or white like her mother's. So when she tans, she gets bronzish easily. Her cream colored skin is offset by her black eyes, which are really just a very deep brown. Her nose is much like her Uncle Zahrim's, but the lips come from her father's side of the family. They're full, with a light pink color to them. Her hair is usually worn in one long braid or even small rows that a drudge helps her with in exchange for small favors. It's a rare ocassion when it's down and running smooth. The texture is the same as her mother's rich mahogany hair, as well as the color. When down, it reaches almost to her bottom.
Personality: Thanks to Weyrlife, Geillis has been a free soul for as long as she can remember. Never settling down with a single weyrmate for too long, she's tried a lot of things. She's even considered babies, but hasn't been that fortunate yet. Because of her lazy sense of commitment, it's been often said she compares to a bird. And since she doesn't spend much time with anyone, it's hard for her to get attached enough to love or be angry at them. This aspect of her personality might even make her seem flaky, except when she has an opinion on something. Passion is clear then.
History: Her mother, Mirill, was an apprentice baker at Ista Weyr, when she met her father, Gestin. The two danced at some of the gathers, but Gestin was a candidate and he Impressed blue Xanoth, making him G'stin. He kept the relationship going though, seeing something in Mirill that he appreciated. They were weyrmated and had three children, S'itim, Geillis, and Nimmi.
Information about Geillis's dragon
Dragon Name: Karith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Karith's a maze of color. It seems like parts of her are blue green, some are emerald green, others are a hunter green. All of them blend together, showing up at different times in the sunlight. She's one of the larger greens in length, similar to smaller blues. Her hide is as yet unmarred, as well.
Personality: Karith, much like her appearance, is a mix of emotions. Whereas her rider isn't much for crying, shouting, and other displays of feeling, she is a jumble of them. Her moodswings can be rapid, if not tempered by Geillis' own thoughts and restraint. Her ability to sense emotions in other people, dragons, and even flits at times has made her a very good Searchdragon as well as a chatty one.
