Physical Description of Persona:
Xeladrie is of below average height. Her hair is a pale blonde and in a simple ponytail, though she weaves it into elaborate styles when needed. Her skin is gorgeously tanned, and her body type is soft and curvy. She has wide green eyes with long lashes.

Emotional Description of Persona:
Publicly, Xeladrie is a perfect lady. She has flawless manners and a warm-hearted interest in the people around her. On the down side, she's easily distractible and has a tendency to pout.

The real Xeladrie is pragmatic and self-centered. She seeks security and stability above all else, and harbors a bitter core of anger at the ways of the South where a woman is dependent on men. She's manipulative and sees other people as tools to be turned to her purpose and discarded when unnecessary. She is temperamental and mercurial and occasionally vicious.

History of Persona:
Xeladrie is the second daughter of Lord Xelfin of Turquoise Bay Hold. She was a reserved child, and was often overlooked in favor of the loudest or the most rebellious of her siblings. She learned early on how to manipulate them into acquiring what she wanted without being blamed for it, and how to be smart and cunning while appearing to be neither.

She holds no real affection for any of her siblings, with the exception of her older sister Elarie. Xeladrie idolized her sister, who was gorgeous and witty, with keen insights into other people. When Elarie left to be fostered, she was distressed at the loss of her close confidante. When she came back pregnant from an affair, and then killed herself over it, Xeladrie's heart shifted to anger - at the lot of women, at men in general, and most of all, at the culprit.

Being a Lord Holder's daughter gave her a pampered upbringing, but it carried with it the understanding that her role in life was to be a pawn to be traded to her father's benefit. Xeladrie hates the idea of being an avian in a cage, but she's determined to have a gilded one, with as much control as she can muster. Her husband may rule the hold's lands, but she wants to control the domestic sphere. Whether she'll be able to make this happen remains to be seen.

Glimmer, Green Firelizard: aged 1, hatched m1 d10
Next Mating Flight: m12 d3
Glimmer is still growing, but it looks like she'll be on the small side when full grown. She is a light shade of green with a gray tone, like celadon.
