Name Pronounced: CAR-lah
Appearance: Pale blonde hair, dark blue eyes that seem haunted. Pert little nose, narrow face. Even now you can see that she's going to be a looker when she grows up. Skinny, and tall for her age. Also, because she's tall people think she's older than she actually is.
Personality: Not only does she look older, she acts older. Even though she's on the low side of 11, people think she's closer to 13 - and she exploits that every chance she gets. One can't say that she's nice or not nice, but she is quiet. Sometimes one doesn't even know that she's there, which suits her just fine. She learns things that way.
History: Karla and her twin brother Tamalak are the children of the former Weyrwoman of Fort Weyr - Kamma - and R'late, a bronzerider who transferred from Arolos to Fort. Most people, however, think that their father was the then-Fort Weyrleader, K'aktal. Kamma even named them ambiguously.
Information about Karla's pets
Pet Name: Ranger
Pet Type: Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: The light side of bronze, but around his eyes are dark patches, making him look as if he wears a mask. His tail and ridges are also a darker bronze, while the rest of him is light. He's perfectly formed, but a robust perfection - he is solid and strong.
Personality: Much like Karla, Ranger is fairly quiet - unless food is involved. Then he's anyone's best friend in the world. He's loyal to Karla, and will only become more loyal to her as time goes on.
Second Pet Name: Zari
Pet Type: Gold Firelizard
Appearance: Egg Name: The Flame’s Gift Egg
Personality: Flit Description: There are beautiful golds, and then there is Zari, who is, well, not quite pretty. Her bone structure is just a little too strong, a little too pronounced for her slender figure. Her limbs are just a little too long, a little too lanky to suit her body. She carries with her the air of the gawky adolescent, who never quite manages to grow into the body meant for her. And yet - though her oversized wings may appear awkward on the ground, they’ll stand her in good stead in the air. She will be a graceful and adroit flier, capable of feats of dexterity not generally expected of firelizards of her size. And in those moments, she will be beautiful.
Information about Karla's dragon
Dragon Name: Eglanth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Personality: Eglanth is a small frumpy little green with a deep green hide and a stern eye. She's a proper little thing, quick to scold others for wrongdoing and perceived ill manners. This also extends to her rider, who will learn very quickly to mind their tongues and brush their hair, unless they want to deal with their mother.. umm dragon losing her patience and nagging them half to death.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
