Character type: Harper
Appearance: At six feet tall Shania has past her siblings and parents as the tallest member of the family. While tall there isn't that much body weight to the young woman. Her athletic build is quite slender with her muscle very obvious. In truth she practically looking to verge on being anorexic. There isn't much curves to her body, she has plenty to clearly be female but she's more plain, not the type who would stand out amongst those females with broader curvature. Even her tightly featured face has little in the way of being memorable. Perhaps her dark brown eyes might be recalled. What sets her apart mostly is her full-bodied hair which is trimmed short with numerous waves as it hangs around her face. The hair is a sandy brown color.
Personality: Shania has little in the way of an actual personality. People will find her more of the quiet type who prefers to work rather than commune with others. She loves what she does and wants nothing to come between her and an instrument. Her intense reluctance to focus on stuff other than work keeps her from getting to know folks very well. Instead the woman sticks to business as normal, working whenever she can get away with it. She doesn't want that to change. The lack of confidence in her social skills has her doubting her ability to handle change. She certainly isn't a risk taker. Her idea of relaxing merely entertains ideas of a good involving story. If she was brave enough to speak her mind Shania would be an entertaining storyteller. As it is there will only be the youngest children ever hearing her tales. In her shyness the young woman prefers to express herself with gestures or art. When there is trouble for her, she is used to running to her family for help. Shania is too much of a coward to stand her ground and fight her own battles.

Information about Shania (Shain-ee-uh)'s pets
Pet Name: Flitter Flight
Pet Type: Runner
Appearance: Any runner has a chance to come in a variety of sizes. But once it is grown there is no growing or shrinking. Unfortunately for this stallion he ended up on the smaller end of the scale. He is sleek for better speed than stamina though he does beneft from being well toned. Muscles are corded up ready to be used through out his body. His legs are strong, carrying a good mass of muscle but his hind legs have more bulk to them. His abilities more rest in launching himself forward or into the air for jumping. The glossy dark brown, nearly black, coat shows that he is a health two turn old runner. On his nose, between his eyes is a short stripe of golden-chestnut that goes up to his dark mane.
Personality: Flitter Flight is a vibrant beast, not the type to be taken lightly or to have a less than clinging rider. His wild temperment has been hard to deal with in the past but he was tamed enough to allow certain uses. However that doesn't make him any easier to ride. He threw Llwelnan and Ziwel off before Shania had tried to mount him, at which point Flitter Flight was too bored to bother tossing her off. So he ended up her mount. Though if she isn't careful Flitter Flight will flare up.
