Physical Description of Persona:
Tall with long legs and sweet curves, Irabel keeps her hair cropped short, effectively reducing the need to play with it and keep it in check. Like her legs, her fingers are long, supple, her fine motor skills excellent. She is an adept swimmer in both skill and speed and as won many of the races between the dolphineers. Her posture is excellent, though her manner is unassuming. She is almost as fast on the ground as she is in the sea and runs every day. She is strong and flexible, keeping in good shape in various ways, though the craft surely helps in that aspect. Her eyes are what seem to catch the attention of many, large, sharp gray orbs that seems to pierce the soul every time they rest upon you.

Emotional Description of Persona:
A calm and empathic woman, Irabel has always been looked upon as having a steady hand and a good head on her shoulders. At the same time, she holds a hint of shyness, though once having gotten to know someone she warms up and becomes more verbose. Outwardly she is calm, collected, sometimes it may even seem as if she has little emotion. In truth, she feels things very deeply, emotions roiling beneath the. In the still in quiet, they will release, sometimes in anger which could result in her quarters getting rather...tousled. Some times in tears. Sometimes in contemplation. She has thrown herself into her craft, enough that the men who have attempted to gain her attention in failed attribute it to her being far too involved with the Dolphins to have time for a man. She rarely lifts her voice save to call attention to someone over long distances, though a loud, skillfully executed shrill whistle will often do that for her. It makes her students certainly play close attention when she talks!

History of Persona:
Born in the North, Irabel knew little of the Southern attitudes toward women. Her father was a secrafter, her mother a dolphineer. Her father died when she was ten in a bad storm the blew in so suddenly, the ship could not return to port in time. Her mother was never quite the same.

When the call for dolphineers came from the South, Irabel's mother answered that call and Irabel, just an apprentice, joined her mother. Together they traveled and the rest of Irabel's training has taken place here. She fell in love with the warm waters and gentle seasons. She did not fall in love with the attitudes, but generally tries to avoid conflicting with the holders.

She found her interests divided, but while she is familiar with all areas of dolphincraft, she has specialised in Meteorology, salvage, and rescue, finding the combination quite useful. She's worked hard to come as far as she has and continues in her studies with the same diligence that she began them and enjoys the times that she teaches the younger apprentices in the craft.
