Description

There is an undertone of fire to this young woman, evident in the bright brandy hue of her eyes and the subtle highlights of auburn in long brown hair. The dark arches of moderately thick eyebrows seem to be in a constant state of near-furling, lending her countenance an understated fierceness. Her straight-bridged nose is perfectly proportioned, her mouth defined by a slightly pouting lower lip, all contained in an oval face with a strong jawline narrowing to an equally strong chin. Lingering youth rounds any edges that might harden the confidence of her appearance and the athleticism of an undeniably feminine frame.

Personality

Headstrong is the word that most accurately sums Devana up. Fiery, passionate, troublesome, tenacious, and impulsive have all also been used to describe her, and all fit her well. A young woman not long out of her teens who feels a tremendous responsibility to her people despite not being the heir to her clan, she faces the rest of the world - particularly the upheaval brought by the Weyr - with a confidence bordering on arrogance. Yet for all her fire and, yes, occasional impulsiveness, she isn’t so naive as to think she has all the answers. She is perfectly capable of slowing down and pondering each angle of a situation, even if that involves just speaking out what comes to mind as she does so.

Fiercely proud of who she is and where she comes from, she refuses to let her way of life be brushed aside while also remaining attentive to different ways of living that present themselves. She doesn’t necessarily //agree/ with them, but she’s open to learning about them and trying to discern their merits.


Common Knowledge

  • If anyone has encountered the Erdou in the wild, they may remember this proud young woman. She's usually the first to greet and engage with visitors among her people.

Relationships

Name Relationship Thoughts
Arawn Brother (+2) "I suppose it's good that he's quieter, thinking before he speaks. He'll make a good leader one day. I just hope he'll be brave enough to take us forward instead of trying to hide from the spinnin' of the world."
F'kan Lover "A dragonman I met in the jungle one day, along with his brown beast. Not at all unpleasant to look at, with intriguing blue eyes. They made my nickname for him. He's a well-mannered sort, at least. He's fun to fluster…and kiss him and do a number of other things to. There's something I'd better not let on to my parents…or anyone else. But I'll not be givin' him up any time soon."
Rielle Acquaintance "Maybe a friend. Another dragonrider who rides a brown, and a woman who leads a wing of her fellows, which is worthy of respect. She does her best to try bridgin' the gaps between us and the Weyr, but I'm not sure she'll ever understand any more than the rest of them do about us. At least she makes an effort."

History

Devana’s clan is known as the Erdou, a people who wander the continent from the mountains of the Southern Barrier Range to the jungles near Southern Weyr. She is the daughter of the clan leaders but not the heir; that responsibility falls to her older brother, Arawn. Even so, she was raised to always be thinking of her people before all else, learning medicine and woodcraft (including hunting, tracking, and fishing) in order to do her part to provide for the clan. It was a path she came to love, the combination of skills granting her a knack for seeking out rarer medicinal plants and herbs on her travels. She is protege to the clan healer, though Devana’s preference for exploring despite her affinity for healing is a regular source of frustration for her mentor.

When the Weyr became a more prominent presence in the wildlings’ lives, Devana was torn between a fierce sense of protectiveness and intense curiosity. Though the Erdou were (and are) a wary lot and tended to avoid dragonfolk unless absolutely necessary, Devana would boldly approach and question, the duality of wanting both to preserve and to learn creating an internal conflict manifested in a rather blunt and fiery way of interacting. Any who know of the Erdou have likely encountered Devana, either at Southern Barrier Hold or near Southern Weyr itself.
