Name Pronounced: Nhim (think Dim with an N)
Appearance: For the most part, theres nothing too noticable about Nim. She's about average height, just a little on the short side but nothing to make people stop and gawk. Her build leans more to a tomboyish background, well built and firm muscles but just enough curves to give away that she is indeed a young woman beneath the tanned cloth. A few scars here and there, but nothing out of the ordinary for a holder born and bred. Most of Nim's body is tanned, not overly dark but often compared to the same color as wellworn boot leather or a dried wine skin.
Personality: Personality wise, Nim is a bit on the odd side. Introvert is the best word to describe the young woman but it's not quite a hundred percent true. She's as home in a crowd of people as she is sitting on a haybale and daydreaming at the stars. She's the type to find amusement in random things that she shouldn't, and often to the embarressment of others. While her humour is never intended to be at the downfall of others, Nim can't really help it when she finds a bad situation full of hilarity. She's been known to laugh at herself quite a bit as well. This often leads to most never taking her seriously, and she's not quite sure she could ever be serious anyway.
History: Nim's history is just as awe inspiring and spectactular as her appearence. Born the thirteenth daughter of a Minor Holder in some random spit of land in the north, she grew up with nearly twenty siblings (mostly half-siblings and a few a adopted). Typical large family that a holder needed to run his lands, that kind of thing. Growing up, she never really showed much of an aptitude for being one of the Ladies of the household. Indeed, most of her sisters shared the same ideas about that. A rough and tumble household, Nim grew up a tomboy. Her and her siblings were always out working in the feilds, tormenting the runners or off up to something no good.
