Description

Eilistra currently resides in that awkward stage between being too tall and too skinny to fit within normal female proportions, but also too robust in certain areas to get away with chopping her hair short and trading places with her brother to the confusion of others (yes, they were /those/ twins). As such, she has let dark brown hair grow long for the first time since she was old enough to prank their Harper teachers. Smug hazel eyes gaze out of a face that is angular and rounded in turns, as if her genetics couldn't quite figure out which parent she should favor, and ended up giving her a little of both. She isn't un-pretty, but it definitely makes her look a tad too exotic where she has no right to be.
Ellie's fashion sense is what a polite person might call 'slightly askew'. Some days she dresses like a boy, old habits dying hard. Other days, she looks like a girl alright, in a light shirt and a thin skirt, but has the unfortunate habit of pairing bad colors and worse patterns with each other without really caring for getting it right. Perhaps as she ages, she'll make a conscious effort to make it work, but for now she's pretty content with what she blindly picks from her closet, reveling in newfound freedom from her mother's matchy-matchy reign.


History

Her past is a relatively unexciting one - the world seemed to give all of its grand adventures away to her relatives, leaving her and her brother to come up with their own excitement. To say they succeeded would be an understatement. As green- and blueriders, their parents transferred often, looking for the best jobs in their craft, and as such, a neverending list of weyrs have fallen prey to their pranks, ranging from switching places (though this favorite passtime was recently rendered useless thanks to burgeoning adulthood) to turning classrooms into makeshift hatcheries for dozens of purloined firelizard eggs, and other such antics that made them infamous before they moved and got to start the weyr-wide torture all over again.

Recently, in a vain attempt to teach them rigor and force them to discover interests beyond trickery, their parents sent them off to the Beastcraft to learn a respectable craft. That lasted all of two weeks, after which they stuffed their sheets with straw in the form of dummies and snuck off hand-in-hand into the night, making the journey to Igen Weyr on foot. It took them a good week to shamelessly write home to their parents revealing the deception, and another week to read the nasty letter sent in return. If it hadn't contained the threat of their father coming to the weyr himself, they might not have answered at all, but alas, the fear of his towering fatherly temper and that of his dragon to boot bid answering.

It was with much reluctance, but eventually their parents consented to their staying at Igen, at least for the time being and so long as they found solid work to do. That didn't mean they couldn't be interesting while they were at it, however. Reinventing their image, the twins were true to their word and found jobs within the weyr under the names of Eilistra and Siaryn, the wayward and woebegotten flight children of starcrossed gold- and bronzeriders. To hear them tell it, he rode Montagueth, she rode Capuleth, and so their love could never come to be, but at least their legacy would live on in their dear children, whom they hid away in Igen to spare them from certain death. Yep. Sounds about right.
