Character type: Candidate
Appearance: Valys stands just under 5'8 and she has a long slim build with just enough curves to catch the eye- something that the shy woman tries to hide with a slouched posture and a loose fitted uniform. Her lovely glossy auburn hair is kept shoulder length, just long enough to pin up into a severe knot- though she will let it down on the very rare occasion when she feels comfortable enough to do so. Her eyes are a pleasant shade warm brown, framed by thick lashes though she does tend to look at the floor when talking to just about anyone.
Personality: Shy is an understatement when describing Valys, the girl is almost painfully quiet and she will do her best to fade into the background whenever possible. Of course most of this comes from a strong sense of self preservation. As a girl, standing for eggs other than gold made her a target, she'd seen the abuse that others had suffered first hand and she would hide from it as long as she could, hopefully long enough for her longed for dragon to crack its shell. Boys, especially ranking ones are to be avoided at all costs but she will make tentative friendships with other girls. Just don't expect any true loyalty from her, when push comes to shove she will always look after herself first.
History: Valys was born to a kitchen drudge and a some random ranker that her mother never spoke of other than to complain about how Valys had his awful eyes. Which made the poor girl vow to never seek him out, lest she find out other awful things about her background.
Valys is a candidate. Her colour preference is Gold, Green, Blue
