Character type: Holder
Appearance: Marta is not an overly beautiful woman, however, she is rather striking in her own way. She keeps her long bronzish brown hair in a neat braid usually pinned to her head, up and out of the way. Her once soft hazel brown eyes with their inviting green flecks, now carry a certain aloofness within them.
Personality: At one time Marta could be counted on as a loyal and loving friend. She is hardworking and was eager to learn new things. However in the last turn and a half she has had to learn to me conniving, to snatch up every and any opportunity that comes her way. At one time she would have scolded someone for saying the ends justifies the means, however, she has learned the hard lesson that sometimes what you have is not secure unless you have the means to keep it. An if you have to be sneaky and/or use blackmail to keep it. Well, then that is just what you have to do.
History: Marta grew up in the mining hold, the eighth of ten children. Never really ignored but rather over looked because she was a girl in a family of mostly men, she grew to be rather independent but a touch insecure. Her one large achievement in her family was befriending the Lord Azhelyn's daughter Azelle. For the most part she was taken into the family of the Lord and pretty much treated as a second daughter.
