Name Pronounced: Soh-fee-ahna
Appearance: Sofianna is a small, petit looking girl, with just enough curves to make her look feminine. Her facial features look like something that would fit on a porceline doll. With high cheeks, large brown eyes, a small nose and delicate lips, she would certainly considered pretty by many people's standards. Her long black hair is often tied back to keep it out of her eyes. The only mark of girlishness she'll allow for in her otherwise delicate features is an enamel hair comb, under the excuse that it keeps her hair from falling loose.
Personality: While her appearance may be delicate and girly, Sofianna is really anything but. Beneath that petit frame is an active spit-fire of a person. She enjoys things that involve getting her hands dirty, and doesn't shirk away from hard work. Not a meek sort of person by anyone's reckoning, Sofianna has no intention of settling down as some holder's wife and half a dozen children. The very thought of being stuck in such a life makes her cringe, even though its the sort of life her parents expect from her. She sees more for herself, and she's not going to let anyone get in her way.
History: Sofianna was born in a cothold near Arolos Hold, one of several children, and the only girl among them. Childhood was pretty normal for Sofianna. Her family were farmers and small time runner breeders, raising mostly beasts meant for the fields, pulling plows. All was fine, until the plague hit the land, dropping Sofianna's safe little world out from under her. Her family was hit, and hit hard, like so many others around them. All of them fell ill to some degree, and in the end, her father and five of her brothers and almost as many aunts and uncles were dead at the end of it.
Information about Sofianna (Sofie)'s pets
Pet Name: SilverBell
Pet Type: Runner
Appearance: SilverBell is a medium sized runner, standing at 15 hands tall. Her appearance is similar to that of an Arabian breed on Earth. She's built for stamina as well as speed, and while she's okay with jumping obsticlers, this mare prefers straight tracks. As her name suggests, she's grey in color.
Personality: Intelligent and spirited are the two words to describe this runner. She knowns who's meant to work with her, and if you're not those people, chances are, she won't do what you want her to do. She knows her owner won't tolerate her behaving badly, and knows that proper behavior is rewarded, and she expects to get those rewards when she does what is asked of her. Whether its just a quick jot around the practice ring, or giving her all in a race, there had better be a treat waiting for her afterwards, or she'll make her displeasure known.
Second Pet Name: SilverSpark
Pet Type: Runner
Appearance: This little fellow has just been born a few months ago, so how he'll turn out once fully grown isn't yet known. But what already shows is very striking. Everything, from mane to coat to tail is a pure, striking white, with no hint of any other color. Its his eyes that are even more startling, as they are blue in color. While usually this signals a defect of some sort in runners, SilverSpark has been found to be completely healthy as a new colt can be.
Personality: Though very new to the world, SilverSpark is already proving to be a handful for his dam and owner. Curious and showing intelligence, he's eager to poke his little nose into everything that comes his way.
Third Pet Name: Helinia
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: One could have predicted that the Perilous Perfection egg would have produced a beautiful flit, and in this regard, it doesn’t disappoint. Helinia is a true firelizard beauty, with her fine boned features and slim, elegant form. She is quite small, the smallest of her clutch, but every inch of her tiny body extrude grace and an effortless allure that is impossible to counterfeit. Her hide is an exquisite emerald green in color, and if any blemish or unevenness existed, it is not visible to the naked eye.
Personality: Helinia’s greatest asset is her incomparable loveliness, and her greatest flaw the fact that she knows that she is beautiful. And beautiful people know that beautiful people can get away with things that mere mortals can’t. From day one, Helinia will be pushing at those boundaries, trying to figure out what she can get away with. Her owner will need to take her firmly in hand, lest he/she wished to risk ending up with a spoiled brat of a flit.
