Description

Defiant confidence and quick compassion are evident in equal turns in this woman’s appearance, wrought in the lines of a strong jaw, high cheekbones, and the gentle angle accenting the high arch of her brows that brings out an earnest intensity in keen hazel eyes. Yet all of this is offset by the rounded point of a small, straight-bridged nose and the unwitting sensuality of full lips that so readily quirk in hauteur or amusement. Long brown hair is pulled partially back into a plait, keeping most of it out of her face while letting the rest hang free.

Personality

In some ways, Brenna is absolutely unafraid to make her feelings known loud and clear. She has a temper, enough that she’s been termed “hot-headed” by her family. She has little patience for excess talk when action is clearly needed, or for weakness that she believes can be helped. She would prefer to call herself “no-nonsense” or simply practical, which truly wouldn’t be wrong. It’s just that sometimes this facet of her overwhelms the rest until her compassionate side comes fully into play.

What she is afraid to do is let herself be vulnerable in front of anyone. Tears, whether from anger or fear, are things she tries to keep to the confines of her wagon as much as possible. Most of the time, she’s successful. When she isn’t, embarrassment ensues, and she has to give herself something to do until it passes, whether it’s work or a long ride by herself.

Brenna tends to be very focused, largely owing to her profession. A carpenter’s steady, patient hand can only be wielded by a steady, patient mind, after all. She’s intent on seeing her tasks through to the end and gets frustrated by delays. One might think it’s a wonder she knows how to relax at all, but she truly does. She’s just so quiet about it that people might miss the fact that she’s done it at all.


Common Knowledge

  • Brenna is one of two dedicated wheelwrights for the Reika caravan, the other being her father, Embry.
  • She tends to hum while she's working. It's quite pretty to listen to, hinting at a good musical ear and probably a lovely singing voice.

Relationships

Name Relationship Thoughts
Embry Father "He taught me the value of a solid strike and a quiet moment. I always find myself wishing I had more of his level head. Maybe it'll keep rubbing off on me."
Nailen Mother "I'm sure I get my steady hands from her. I know she's who I get my temper from."
Aily Sister "I miss her, of course, but I'm glad she followed her heart and went off to the Healer Hall. She's going to be even more valuable when she comes back to us."
Rylen Brother "I'll never tire of getting into trouble with him, even if it's of a subtler sort nowadays. I couldn't be prouder of the man he's become."
Onari Friend "May as well be a sister, honestly. I miss her not being around the caravan all the time, but that's the direction life has taken her. I am excited for when she finally has her baby, though!"
Timotin Acquaintance "A very talented man…and very unique-looking among his people. He's quiet but not shy, and between that and his looks, I'd be lying to say I'm not intrigued."

History

Brenna’s past is quite simple. She’s a middle child, always looking up to her older sister and getting into mischief with her younger brother in her youth. Her family, the Rothai, has always been close with the Reika, and Brenna herself has been friends with Onari since they were quite young. When the caravan was assembled, Embry, her father, was the first man Forin approached about making it a joint venture.

Her parents are both carpenters, though Embry works more with wagons and architecture, while her mother Nailen makes tools, utensils, and more decorative items. Brenna apprenticed to them both, finding a niche as a wheelwright and joiner. She has come into her own over the past few Turns, having established herself well with the work done to repair wagons damaged in the infamous desert raid.
