Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Tiella has long auburn hair, which she usually wears pinned up or braided into coils if she is flying. She stands at 5ft 6" and has a slender build, which has bulked out with muscle since she became a rider. Her features are pleasant but take some work prior to a gather to draw attention to her and she doesn't usually worry over much about how she looks any more. She has hazel brown eyes and automatically holds and moves gracefully.
Personality: Tiella was searched for the first CLutch at Arolos when she was 18, and left her Crafthall, where she was recognised as a decent sculptor and potter as well as a weaver. Her passion however, was and still is dancing. Tiella loves to dance and if she had been apprenticed to a Craft of Dancing, you would not have got her to come to the weyr even for the lure of dragons. She is a determined and resiliant person
History: She was reasonably quiet and shy when she arrived staying out of peoples way, but unfortuneately for her, she caught the eye of the Barracks bully, Kuligh. There was a long running conflict in the Barracks and it culminated in Kuligh attempting to rape her. Another Candidate, Jayshar rushed to save her, but being significantly samllerand younger than Kuligh didn't stand a chance. His intervention did allow her to get away and she ran panic stricken into the forest outside the weyr whilst Kuligh attempted to kill Jay (and nearly succeeded by throwing him from the Rim). Because Tiella had fled, Kuligh was unable to find her again after "disposing" of Jay, but she was completely traumatised and dazed by the rough handling she had received, that when she was found she was practically catatonic with shock.
