Name Pronounced: Jer-e-na
Appearance: Jerina's auburn hair is only a little seawater worn because she has learned the finer points of hair and skin care from other dolphineer and seacrafter women. Her skin is tanned from her work, but is not leathery as one might expect. Her hair is normally long enough to be worn in a thick braid with bangs cut barely above her eyebrows. If going to a dance or gather she will curl it and wear it up in a high runner's tail of curls or in a pinned bun..
Personality: Jerina had always been shy and cautious of people until she began her craft and learned to work with many different people on a day to day basis. In social situations if she seems indifferent it is her shyness at fault. Jerina is an intelligent and very compassionate person, but she had situations in her life that made her cautious of people and slower to trust them. In a crowd of people, Jerina may be quiet, but if you watch her eyes you know she is absorbing everything within her range of sight, hearing, and, in some cases, touch. The world is full of things to be discovered and she doesn't plan to miss a detail.
History: Family Group:
Information about Jerina's pets
Pet Name: Sqeegie
Pet Type: Dolphin
Appearance: Sqeegie looks to all appearances like a regular male Pern dolphin except for scars on his left side. He is a muscular male. The scars are in front of and extending into his left flipper, but do not affect his athletic ability. Jerina's careful rehabilitation with Sqeegie is the reason the injury did not affect his abilities.
Personality: Sqeegie is as boisterous and lively and fun-loving as any dolphin of Pern. He is strong and healthy as any other and smart. Sqeegie is part of the pod that calls the seas by Dolphin Hall home. He and Jerina have learned their training well and Sqeegie is willing and ready to do his job with Jerina or any of the other dolphineers. During the times Jerina could not be at the Hall he is content with messages through green flit Missy. Sqeegie loves playing with the dragons that visit the cove and wants Jerina to win a dragon to join their family.
Second Pet Name: Missy
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Missy is a green Callamere firelizard and her hide is almost irridescent and sparkles in the sunlight with hints of rainbow colors. She is larger than most green female firelizards.
Personality: Missy is loud, bossy, and almost envisions herself as a gold and wishes she were one. Missy tries to entice bronzes when she can. She adores Jerina, but is sometimes jealous of Sqeegie when Jerina joins him in the water. Missy is fascinated with the dragons that visit. Basically, Missy is a little green firelizard with big expectations of herself and her pet. She is willing to carry messages for Jerina now since she has watched others do it and if they can, Missy definitely can.
Information about Jerina's dragon
Dragon Name: Frosoth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: When Frosoth hatches from his egg many in the crowd of onlookers will be helpless to do anything but smile at him. The blue seems to radiate good cheer. Heís a rather plump blue, but not overly large, and if he stumbles from time to time heís always good natured about it. Even his walk has a jauntiness about it, like heís got a song stuck in his head. Sure, some cynics might sneer at his optimism, but most will love his ability to be bright and friendly to everyone.
