Name Pronounced: How-tah
Appearance: Most people, upon first seeing Hautah, think she is weak because of how thin she is. Were they to try to take advantage of that, say, by grabbing her, then she would show her true strength. Growing up assisting the women of her hold did NOT make Hautah a weak girl. Strength is required for taking care of littlies. Hautah has shoulder-length auburn hair that is straight as a stick. She usually keeps her hair pulled back into a ponytail. Her eyes are green as a dragon in heat, with flecks of brown and amber embedded in them. Across Hautah's face under her eyes is a light splash of freckles. which seem to lighten in the shade and darken in the sun. Hautah's skin is a creamy pale alabaster, but is beginning to tan in the Arolosian sun. She is about 5'6", and weighs 126 pounds. Her legs seem way too long for her body, as do her arms, but this is because her torso is rather small. Seeing as she wishes to have children one day, this may become a problem.
Personality: Hautah is serious most of the time, rarely laughing or smiling. It's not that she *doesn't* have a sense of humor, it's just that nothing makes her laugh easily. If something's funny enough, sure, she'll laugh. She doesn't make friends easily, but she's learning. It's mostly her distant, waiting air that makes people shy away. When her parents were taking care of her, she laughed and sang and danced all the time. After her cousin's seeming betrayal, however, she withdrew into herself, not coming out for anyone. At one point, her shell was shattered by the passion and love of fellow Candidate Ollien. After Ollien Impressed and became O'lie, things changed drastically. Hautah grew more introverted and quiet, raising her son to be that way too.
History: Father: Hausefer
Information about Hautah's pets
Pet Name: Hord
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: There's mere bone on this blue. A gangly creature who's medium-large but having little weight on his skeletal figure, Hord won't seemingly have much subtance beyond his coloration. The wings too are narrow sails that're better at maneuvering than anything else. His turquoise
Personality: What could be more important than shinies? As far as Hord is concerned there's nothing more desirable than a shiny and the bigger, the better. He'd always seek out a gold dragon over a gold firelizard unless a mating flight was going on. Even though he isn't fond of plain greens he'll chase every female firelizard who rises and is determined they'll be his alone. To such end he has a distinct distaste for his male competition. It's not beneath him to play unfair to get what he desires but he rarely turns nasty toward a female unless they leave him no choice.
