AGE: 19 as of summer 2769
LOCATION: High Reaches
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Green
HAIR: Dark Blond
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'8" Slender
PLAY-BY: Mineva Zabi
FULL APPEARANCE:
Mineva is a slim young woman of average height. She keeps her dark blond hair cropped short just below her nape while most of the volume sits atop her head. Her eyes are bright green and her skin is fair and prone to burning. She tends to wear an expression of concern when deep in thought, but isn't aware of it unless someone points it out. While she admittedly loves to dress in fancy wear, she prefers practicality to unnecessary excess, but does have a few nice gather gowns and accessories she treasures.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Mineva is a kind and righteous young woman. Her moral compass is fixed firmly north. She desires peace above all else and will do anything within her power to see that through. She will use herself and her position, whatever leverage it may give her, to negotiate, but only on her own terms. She refuses to let anyone use her; she is a tool, not a pawn. Organized and focused, she can sometimes fixate on one particular issue to the exclusion of all else. Whether the end is bad or good, she tries her hardest to keep from doing it again. She will work herself to the point of burnout and will need someone to make her sit down and take a break. Politically minded, she doesn't claim to be an expert. She's still learning, and will go on learning as much as she can.

Mineva is a private person while still being outgoing. Wishing to be judged on her own merits rather than on her family's reputation, she doesn't like to talk about her past much except for vague anecdotes and childhood mishaps. Despite this, she tries her hardest to get to know others as best she can, both because she truly cherishes her friends and to know who potential enemies may be. She wants to be everyone's friend and to that end ends up coming off as insincere and stuffy. The reality is that she can't be friends with everyone, but that doesn't stop her from trying. She always conducts herself with dignity and grace, even in the heat of the moment. It is difficult to break her 'mask', but even when it does, she manages to keep her emotions in check. That's not to say she never expresses herself; certain things like anger and pettiness are for one's private quarters, not the public sector.

FAMILY:
Father- Dozle
Mother- Zenna
Uncle-Sasro
Uncle- Gihren
Uncle- Garma
Aunt- Kycilia
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Banagher of White Unicoth
BIRTHPLACE: Minor Telgar Hold
HISTORY:

Mineva was born into the family of a minor hold's Steward. As the little princess of the family, she was spoiled as a young child and wanted for nothing. There was no shortage of material possessions for her and she was never anything but happy. She was a bright girl, though, and as she grew she began to notice things. She asked her mother why she seemed to have much more than some of the hold children, or why people complained that they were poor when there was so much to go around, but Zenna merely shushed her and told her not to ask.

That wasn't good enough for Mineva. She began trying to wiggle her way into meetings about hold affairs, but was promptly sent away. Shen then became good at eavesdropping. Over many months of listening in on other's conversations, she began to piece together that her family wasn't as kind or noble as she was led to believe. She was a bit young yet to understand the full implications of their excessive gathering of tithes and fees, but at nine turns she knew she no longer wanted to live at the hold. With great persistence she managed to convince her parents to allow her to spend some time at Fort Weyr with an uncle as part of her education (It would be harder for them to make her come home than if she were at Telgar); unbeknownst to them she had no intention of returning home and meant to apply for candidacy when she became of age. As a parting gift, her father presented her with a firelizard egg that hatched into Green Kshatriya.

Not long after settling in, Mineva met a rather gloomy boy named Banagher. He took an instant liking to her, but Mineva took much longer to warm up to him. She wasn't sure what to make of him at first, but the more she got to know him the more fond she became of him. He was her closest confidant and her rock for when things became hard.

They entered candidacy together when they came of age and a mere turn later Banagher Impressed Unicoth. While disappointed that she hadn't Impressed as well, that disappointment faded when she fell in love with Unicoth as well, both the dragon herself and how happy she made Banagher. Once Unicoth was grown and Banagher a full rider, he and Mineva became official Weyrmates. Still, something seemed missing; a sense of fulfillment that baffled her. After much thought and many conversations with Banagher, Mineva made the decision to transfer to High Reaches. She felt she could do more there, and though she was loathe to leave her love behind, she did so anyway, but always made sure to write him almost daily.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Kishi has a fighting spirit, always ready to defend Mineva from anything she percieves as a threat, which tends to be just about anything. She gets put out when she's kept from fighting, but will huffily sit on Mineva's shouders without trying to disobey. She's a big eater and always seems to be hungry, but is too polite to beg.
