Persona Profile: Kamalia

Writer: Francesca

Name: Kamalia
Pronunciation: Ka-MAH-lya
Age: 22
Birthday: m1 d12
Rank: Wingrider, Cyan Wing
Location: Dragonsfall Weyr

Physical Description of Persona:
Kamalia is 5' 3" and the baby fat she still had before Impressing Alaudath has given way to more angular lines and muscles. The physical work of being a dragonrider, and a love of running, have given her an athletic build she had never realized her body could have, and she is quite proud of it. Her eyes are a medium brown, as is her hair. She keeps it long and generally pulled back in braid.

Emotional Description of Persona:
Kamalia is fairly emotional, and tends to overreact to events, both happy and sad. She grew up one of the younger siblings in a large family and learned from the time she was very young that temper tantrums made her parents pay attention to her. While she does not do this anymore, she still can cry at will, and will sometimes use nagging to get what she wants. She has matured quite a bit now after several Turns in a Fighting Wing, but can still come across as younger than she is, especially when spending time with her brother Arrilon.

History of Persona:
Kamalia grew up just outside Amber Hills Hold, the daughter of two Hold residents. Her mother works in the kitchens and her father is a Guard at the Hold. She is the 8th (living) child and has five younger siblings. Her childhood was filled with people and noise, and although she didn’t get as much attention from her parents as she would have liked, she was content.

When she was 14, a bluerider came to the Hold to deliver a message and Kamalia and her brother, Arrilon, happened to be nearby when the dragon landed. Both of them, much to the envy of their siblings, ended up being Searched. Their parents weren’t too upset with having two of their many children off of their hands, and were heartened by the fact that Arrilon would be there to take care of his younger sister.

Adjusting to life at the Weyr took some time, but soon Kamalia couldn't imagine going back to the Hold. She began flirting with boys and even had a fling with a bronzerider. Her brother transferring to Dolphin Cove Weyr to Stand gave her the freedom to explore life in the Weyr and as a greenrider without having to worry about his reactions. 

Now, Kamalia is content with her life. She gets a thrill out of the concentration and skill needed to fight Thread, she has a circle of friends to have fun with and confide in, and there's no expectation for her to settle down or have children.

Family and Friends
Arrilon, 25, Junior Journeyman Harper, Harper Hall, Emerald Falls Hold (Brother)

Dragon's Name: Alaudath
Dragon's Age: 6
Dragon's Colour: Green
Description of Dragon:
Alaudath is a light, moss colored green. At her hatching, she was one of the smallest of the clutch, and she remains small now that she has reached her full growth. Like many greens, she is chatty and flirty, and while she has a fascination with bronzes, her small size means blues tend to catch her. When not flirting, she enjoys talking to young dragonets.
