Character type: Candidate
Appearance: Kaylia has always been smaller than most and at present she stands at just barely five feet and one inch tall. Bottle green eyes dominate her face, the snub nose and rounded shape of her face no match for the interesting color of her eyes. Freckles cover nearly every portion of her body that is often visible, and likely ones that aren't as well no doubt she blames them for multiplying whenever her fair skin burns. Curly auburn hair hangs to just past her shoulders when left down, and it often is so that her rather large ears are not left to stick out on their own.
Personality: Kaylia was once a shy child, tending to stay far out of the way of crowds and gatherings. She has found a way of overcoming this in the last few turns and if not outgoing she is at least comfortable around others. When the topic at hand is one she has a great interest in, such as animals or working in the kitchens she can often become quite animated. Her love of reading has not diminished over the years and this still causes her to often forget some chore or errand that she’s been sent on when she gets lost in a story. Always emotional she can go from chattering to tears in a span of moments, with none the wiser for what happened to cause the change in the girl. To her there’s a fine line between joking around and teasing, and often no one realizes that this is where they’ve overstepped.
History: Kaylia was born into a large family, there were eight of them in all; three brothers and four sisters. The youngest by a few years she was coddled more than the others, but that didn’t give her an excuse to shirk at her duties. They were farmers who lived near Callamere Hold, and anyone who knows anything knows that there are no idle hands when it comes to farmholds. No doubt this is where Kaylia comes by her love of animals as well, when she wasn’t helping with the farmwork she was caring for the animals themselves. Ever since she could remember she wanted to be a dragonrider though and when she was searched just past her twelvth turnday she was /thrilled/ right down to her toes. Even though that was two turns ago and she’s yet to impress she loves her life at the Weyr and has no plans on going back home anytime soon. Well, at least for anything other than a visit.
