Character type: Staff
Appearance: At 5'1, Simsa is a small woman, and a slender one. As an apprentice she often used to be the one sent up to keep a look-out from the Crow's Nest. She has duties other than that now, but she's still capable of doing it from time to time if it's needed.
Personality: Simsa has been brought up with a lot of respect for Those In Charge. As a child she was taught that being rude to one of them would get you into a lot of trouble very quickly, and so good manners and obedience became a habit. She still gets a little shocked by anyone who *does* talk back - if you wanted to be able to do that, why on Pern would you choose the SeaCraft where disobedience could cause accidents that cost lives?
History: The SeaCraft is, naturally, near the sea. And sometimes near the sea... accidents happen. Sometimes things that aren't quite accidents happen too. Life is sad like that.
