Name Pronounced: Lie-tra
Appearance: At first look Litra looks like how she grew up as, a farm worker. Her curly blond hair is kept at shoulder length, a dark heavy tan, and wide blue eyes seeking for the latest news don’t do much to displace that that theory either. Even the way she talks seems to have the country twang for no one bothered to teach her not to talk like that. They taught her to hold her self high for she is a little taller than average, about 5 feet 6 inches, and they wanted her to be proud that she carried the famine tall gene. They also tried to teach her that if she wanted ever to get a man that she shouldn’t wear her baggy, men- like clothing, but that never seems to stop her. She doesn’t have that great of curves, but she isn’t flat either, just normal.
Personality: Being a farm girl, Litra knows when fun is appropriate and when its not. She works hard, and usually hums when working whether its chores or candidate lessons. Yet when the works finished, and the person in charge of her says she’s off, she’s a boat load of fun: joking around, pranking, and flirting. Because of living with guys only, except her aunt, she acts like a guy when she’s not flirting with them of course. Social standing means little to nothing to her, and she will talk to anybody, except the Weyrwomen, the same way as she would a drudge that’s her friend, or at least that’s if you’re on her good side. Faranth help anyone who does get on that side.
History: Litra is the youngest and the only girl out of five children from a greenrider, Lika, and a brownrider, R'anar. Being dragonriders they didn’t have time to deal with the children so they sent three, Litra, Cartick, and Irem, to there aunts and the other two to their uncle. Their aunt and her husband was a farmer, so they were raised working on the farm, not learning more than farm hands should. On the farm they were isolated from the rest of the hold/ weyr, Benden, but they couldn’t care less for they were enough company for each other. And when she was 12 she and her brothers found a stray canine puppy. At first the trio kept the dog a secret from their aunt, but soon she found out. Yet it wasn't the fury that they were expecting. No, they really didn't care for dogs were useful around the farm so they were able to keep her.
