Name Pronounced: Gr-en-NA
Appearance: Her parents aren’t entirely sure what happened. Stand Grenna next to her parents and siblings and a stranger would swear blind that the girl was no relation whatsoever. Her parents can certainly vouch for the… validity… of her parentage, but you’d never guess it. Her father is tall, dark and swarthy whilst her mother is petite and fair. Both sets of aspects have rubbed off on her brothers and sisters, but Grenna? Well she’s a whole new batch of characteristics. No one in her family has ever had curly hair. Ever! But Grenna’s head is capped with a mass of tightly curled and unruly ringlets that topple over her shoulders and partially down her back. Not to mention, they’re red! Well, reddish. Faranth alone knows how the dark auburn appeared but it’s there all right.
Personality: If you saw Grenna quietly and methodically working her way through the kitchen, you’d think that maybe she was a bit… slow. It is in fact much to the contrary. She’s really rather bright but perhaps in more of a practical way as opposed to an innately intellectual one. Give her a complex recipe for a delicate puff pastry and it’ll make perfect sense. Give her a sheet of sums and you’ll receive a look that appears to be wishing you into the darkest recesses of Between. She’s not stupid by any means, but Grenna would much rather tackle a problem with her hands, rather than her brain.
