Character type: Crafter
Appearance: Myrlain is 5ft8” tall and has pale skin naturally and tans quite slowly. She has a medium frame and large build with quite wide hips but a comparatively small waist.
Personality: Myrlain is confident and strong. Not at all like the shy little girl she used to be. Though she still doesn't really know how to make friends, and only has a few acquaintances. This is largely due to the fact that she works so hard on her Craft, and the only contact she has with other people is over the animals that she helps to rear.
History: Myrlain has lived a sheltered life at Ruatha Hold, not really wanting for anything. Her father is a very successful trader, much of which is thanks to Myrlain's talent for dress making, and her mothers talent for breeding healthy Flitts, both of which he sells, along with anything else which he thinks people will buy.
Information about Myrlain's pets
Pet Name: Pine
Pet Type: Brown Flit
Appearance: Pine is of average size for a Brown flit, and lacks anything worth mentioning in terms of his physique. His coloration, however, is quite interesting. It looks like someone has taken and desert tree and sculpted a Flit out of it, but has taken the time to remove the bark from the lower half only. You can even see patterns of wood grain on his skin.
Personality: Pine is a very caring and gentle creature. He picked up these traits from Myrlain, and sticks by her side most of the time, even if means watching her from the rafters of a barn while she mucks out the horses. He doesn't have much interaction with his own kind, perhaps because Myrlain has little interaction with her own. He's very sweet though, and will even try to help Myrlain out with her duties as a BeastCrafter.
Second Pet Name: Storm of Stars
Pet Type: Callmere White Horse
Appearance: Storm of Stars is a strong runner, fairly tall but not too much. He has an impressive stature and a well defined form. He isn't the biggest of horses, but his air of dominance lays thick over his physique. He's the standard white Callamere, and would be an excellent example of the breed if he didn't insist on rolling in the grass all the time and dirtying his hair. He's quite often covered with green patches with are stubborn to remove.
Personality: Storm of Stars is aggressive and he'll happily let you know it. This isn't the sort of runner you should try to pet, he'll likely bite your fingers off and pretend he thought they were carrots. He often has competitions with the other stallions. He'll prance around and attempt to prove how strong he is to the mares. Myrlain has to take a tough hand with him to prevent him fighting, which he would do with the slightest provocation.
