Riah (npc hairdresser)
Name Pronounced: Ri (as in eye) - ah
Appearance: Riah is not beautiful by any means, but given her learned knowledge of the fine points of accentuating her good features with a new hairdo and a bit of color here and there, Riah could fool you and enjoys doing just that.
Personality: True to the stereotype of a red-head, Riah is passionate and can be a bit argumentative if someone doesn't agree with her particular viewpoint on any issue. She has learned to temper all of it since her chosen work is being a hairdresser which includes working with all types of people, day in and day out. She has learned to politely nod and smile, although her teeth might be clamped together for a moment as she keeps her opinion to herself.
History: Hairdresser Riah was born and spent part of her childhood in Benden Weyr territory and at Benden Weyr to barber Pelo and his hairdresser wife Sariah who had their own shop. Three siblings followed Riah into the family, a brother, and two sisters. The family packed up and moved to Arolos Weyr protectorate when Riah was 18.
