Name Pronounced: TIE-za
Appearance: Tiza is 5' 5", well-shaped but with about twenty more pounds than she carried as a bride at nineteen. Her hair is curly, and kept pinned back with a headscarf covering most of the time. She's a bit vain about it, as its deep red-brown has yet to start showng grey, and so she doesn't want to subject it to the Southern sun. Her eyes are a warm brown, and always snapping with fun.
Personality: Tiza is, in one word, a pragmatist. Life for her is a very matter-of-fact proposition, and she doesn't quite understand those who take a more mystical or emotional view of it. She loves, she laughs, she enjoys her life, but she doesn't make of it more than it is, or less.
History: Tiza lost her hearing slowly as a child, the result of repeated ear infections that the herbal and folk cures couldn't eliminate. Because of this, she has a good memory of speech and can verbally communicate as well as sign. Her speech is monotone, sometimes inappropriately loud, and slurred, but understandable if one is willing to do part of the work.
