Journeyman Tanner, Dragon CandidateAge-Out Date:
Nari probably would have been the sweet girl she is inside, outside as well if it wasn't for her childhood. Thanks to what happened she learned very quickly that telling the truth got you nothing. Lies however, lies were rewarding. She tells lies very spectacularly, twisting and turning plots about. It became a compulsion and part of her since the moment she understood that her home life was not a good one. The compulsion to lie grew and grew, and now she does it without notice or thought. Of course she feels bad, for the most part, for all the lies that she tells, but lying leads to her survival. She can sell her leather for better prices if she says that is much better than his over there, that he gets his leather from tainted herdbeasts.
She has compassion, but personability? No, she's not a fan of people. She can talk people up and sell to them all day long, but when it comes to talking with someone, making friends or what have you? No, she is out. Personal things are not talked about, nor are feelings or any of that. She feels, though you will never know what it truly is unless you find a way beneath the lies.
Nari is a workaholic, when she isn't working she is sleeping, and vice versa. She will drink her Klah and just keep on going trudging along. There are times that she has sat and yearned to be normal, to have friends, but she is afraid of people, and what getting close to people means.Appearance:
Nari isn't the tallest of women, standing closer to a middle height. Her hair is a sandy blonde color that flows down her shoulders in slight messy waves. When she is working it is tied up into the tightest braid she can get. In terms of size she's on the smaller spectrum, thin with her own set of curves, though not much. Her eyes are blue, much like her brother Navenax. She has a small smattering of freckles across her nose from the sun, something that doesn't agree with the fair skin that her family seems to have. She walks with confidence, long strides and a head held like that of a queen, though clearly she isn't one. She can dominate a room when she wants to, when she's trying to sell her wares and work, or she can blend into the background and hide. A talent learned to avoid punishment.
Her fingers are calloused and used to hard labor, not delicate like the rest of her appearance, and when not working with them, they are covered in gloves to hide away that mar that might drive away business.Family:
Tanner; Bronze Firelizard
Tanner started out a little shy at first, but soon he overcame such nonsense, thinking it was thus such himself. Soon he became one to order Nari around, trying to get her to do his bidding. He insists on extra snacks and meatrolls which she denies only half of the time. He takes charge to fetch her what she needs once she bribes him of course.History:Trigger warning: Mention of abuse
The oldest of the girls, and second of the boys, Nari was born just nine months before her younger brother Navenax was. She was the result of her usual parent's spats. It became quickly known that she wasn't so much a welcome gift, but rather an annoyance. Asking for anything from them resulted in unkind words and a strong fist. It wasn't just one, but both parents. This was her every day life for a long time. She was six when the white Wherry plague struck. It was a friend that was hit with it and died. It was devastating to her, and friends, she vowed not to have them ever again.
That was when she learned to lie, to get what she wanted through trickery rather than asking for it. Though the anger towards her wasn't nearly so bad for her, but more so for the oldest. But as soon as he left, as soon as he went away it fell onto her. She was quick to know and to understand that the only way to make it, to get away was to leave.
And so she did. as soon as she was able to she found a craft to jump into, begging until she was let in. Leather tanning was horrible and dirty work. It stank and was strenuous, but it was so much easier than at home. The lies continued here, something that earned many a reprimand. She got better at lying, at tricking and deceiving, even if her heart ached over doing such things. It was safety, it was comforting. And it started to work. She was thirteen when she first saw the plans that were being exchanged around for leather armor for the candidates. She wanted to do that! She was quick to ask to help do such things, to help with tanning the leather or anything that she could do just to have some part in it. She dove into her craft, becoming better and better at it every day. Each day was met with strength and a fire to go on. If she worked she could eat and sleep. If she worked hard than she didn't have to interact.
She was sixteen when Doomfall happened, and being in the hall of Igen it affected her and her craft greatly. She tried not to think about it, to let it get to her, but seeing so much loss hurt her already battered heart.
Soon her work led her to become a journeyman, and she was so excited. It was probably the day she smiled the most. She would get to show off her own work, show what she could do. Not a master by any means. but you couldn't get there without this monumental moment. She was soon ready and sent to Dalibor to work on a project with other journeymen. Soon after arriving in Dalibor she ran into her brother, and not much longer than that later a dragon told her that she was to be a candidate.Adoption Preference:
Preference will be left up to Captain's DiscretionCross-Impressionable
: YesImpression Preference:Desired Colors
Honestly okay with any color as long as it fits.Preferred Personalities
I would love one of the fun loving types to mish mash with her personality. I want something that is loving and sweet and just wants everything to be great. One that likes to meet people and make friends to force her into having to do the one thing she hates most, really interact with someone. Having someone who can call her out on her lies would be the best thing too.Undesirable Personalities

Mauling is fine, with some scaring visible is perfectly okay with me.
