Character type: Trader
Appearance: Lahiri has latte colored skin that she inherited from her parents, one of whom had black coffer colored skin, while the other proudly sported the traditional cream colored northern variety of epidermis. She also has a sprinkling of freckles over her nose, and they spill over to her shoulders and her back, making her look almost like a child, not a full grown trader.
Personality: Lahiri is confident, and a bit self involved, her favorite things are money, herself, her jewelry, and her beauty and body products. If anything, she takes more pride in how her jewelry and beauty products make other people seem lovely, rather than her own personal appearance Though by no means does she neglect herself.
History: Lahiri was born and raised in Forest Edge hold. Her parents, both of whom were rather unlucky traders, tried to apprentice her in a craft hall, or at a weyr, rather than have her live such a difficult lifestyle. So she was handed over to the smith hall, where she took up jewelry making, and began making beauty products as a hobby. But the apple never falls far from the tree, and Lahiri began to miss the open road. So she sent her parents a letter to says she had joined a trade caravan, and trundled off with some other traders, to begin her life, again. A few turns later, she decided that she wanted to travel on her own, and took a right turn instead of a left, and spent 6 of the most miserable weeks of her life trying to fend for herself before she stumbled onto another, much smaller trade caravan, and took up with them.
Information about Lahiri's pets
Pet Name: Opal
Pet Type: Dog
Appearance: Opal is rather like a King Charles cavalier spaniel. She has semi-long wavy hair, rather buggy eyes, and her coat is covered in patches of chestnut and snow white. Her left ear has a slit in it, whcih is why Lahiri could afford the dear thing. Damaged goods you know, and when Lahiri purchased Opal, she had been out trading for exactly 5 and a half days, which is not a lot of time to make money.
Personality: Opal is bold, she may only be a little larger than your average flit, but she thinks that she is easily the size of a dragon. She is also very protective of her territory, and barks at anyone within sight, whom she can not instantly identify.
Second Pet Name: Rykith
Pet Type: runner
Appearance: Rykith is a black runner, about 16 hands high, with a white star and two white stockings on his fore legs. Lahiri often borrows his hair for dye testing, to see how differnt colors look with the original color of a clients hair, so his mane and tail are streaked with all sorts of hair colors. Rykith is gelded, by the way. Luckily, he is expemt from being a jewelery model as well.
Personality: Rykith is pretty laid back, he can take a thunderstorm, threadfall, tidal waves, and his mistresses wrath when a product doesnt turn out right, with the same easy going manner. He simply looks at the problem, seems to say to himself "well, looks like _____ is there" and continues plodding along the road.
Third Pet Name: Lyra
Pet Type: runner
Appearance: Lyra is a palamino runner, about 15 hands high. Luckily, Lahiri loves her beautiful coloring so much that she wont experiment on the little mare. So all her fur is still of the normal golden color assocated with palaminos.
Personality: Lyra is an absolute sweetheart. She loves to cuddle and nuzzle. She is a little shy and timid, and more likely to freak out than her partner Rykith is, but she usualy can be easily calmned if she is confronted with something new and frightening.
