Name Pronounced: Yon-sil-ma, slight emphasis on first syllable.
Appearance: A petite, slender young woman who tends to be a little 'boyish' in appearance. This is enhanced by a preference for wearing her hair short, barely chin length, although it is more like a 'bob' than a more masculine cut. In fact, the style flatters her delicate, triangular features. Her hair is mid brown and her eyes also brown, both being a somewhat dull color. Her voice is a pleasant, even mezzo-soprano.
Personality: Yonsilma is not the most pleasant of girls at times. She does not suffer fools lightly, and is not above telling somebody they are being a jerk or an idiot in as many words, to their face, in front of witnesses. This is the kind of thing that might get her in trouble. However, she is honest to a fault, and to her friends, can be relied on to tell them what they *really* look like in that Gather dress. Her preference for other girls is something she keeps fairly quiet, although with time at the Weyr, that is likely to change. She does not dislike men; but she *does* dislike men who try to dominate or force women, in any way, shape or form. She is not, of course, lacking in compassion. She can be extremely protective of her friends, and also of people who can't protect themselves...animals too, for that matter. In an utter contrast to her somewhat 'tomboy' appearance and tendency not to be particularly feminine, Yonsilma happens to love cooking. With a passion. And most especially to love seeing the results appreciated!
History: When Karsil and his wife, Yima, came down south it was out of sheer ambition. In the High Reaches area from where they came there was little land, and there was no way Karsil was splitting or sharing what they had with Targil, his twin brother. Instead, he wished Targil luck, took his bride of six months and sailed to the southern continent. There, a man could still make his own life and break his own land.
