Description

Before you stands a young woman, perhaps in her late teens or early adulthood, tall for a woman but not awkwardly so. She is broad-shouldered and muscular, giving the impression of strength and flexibility, and her clothes fit snugly around her shoulders and upper arms. Her waist is narrow and her hips squared-off and boyish, lacking the expected womanly curves. Her legs are long and well-muscled, giving her the appearance of a coiled spring ready to explode.

Her face is unexpectedly feminine. Her eyes are the color of rich honey, large, almond and wide-set. They are framed with long, dark lashes and thick but neatly-arching brows. Her nose is long and Greek, giving her an intelligent but aloof expression. Her lips are sweetly bowed and darkly pigmented, appearing a dusky plum color against her olive complexion. Her dark hair is long and lustrous, bound into a heavy braid that she wears swinging behind her or pulled over one shoulder.

Quae is dressed in a tunic and fitted leggings made of a simple, coarse-looking fabric. Though the rough fabric looks like it would be unbearably scratchy, the garment has been washed and worn so many times it now feels as soft as felt. It looks as though it might have once been a rich, dark green, but now it has faded to a softer shade. The tunic is cinched at her waist by a plain, broad leather belt. She wears a pair of sturdy leather ankle boots fastened by multiple buckles and leather straps. They look as though the sole has been replaced several times.

Common Knowledge

Quae is often seen in the company of an old farm dog, Stinks. He lives up to his name. He has one eye, huge bat-like ears, and his fur has the smell and texture of old, wet carpet. Good thing he has some natural talent for herding.

Relationships

Youngest daughter of Quelloran and Aefe, sister of Loraf, Fellor, Aquell and R'fan.

History

Quae is the fifth and youngest child of Master Farmcrafter Quelloran and his late wife, Aefe. She is the only daughter, arriving after the birth of four sons: Loraf, Fellor, Aquell and Rafan. The family lived in the Igen Hold area, supplying the Hold and Igen Weyr with food and fabric crops as well as livestock. As the youngest child and only daughter, Quae was taught traditionally domestic tasks while her father raised his sons to follow in his footsteps.

That's how things were until the Oldtimers moved forward. As a Master Farmer and a respected man in the community, Quelloran was asked to move forward with his family to help support the growing population at current-day Igen Weyr. Quelloran's family moved from the old Igen to a very new Igen — new-but-old, it turned out, moving forward in time but backwards in other ways. As the Oldtimers tried to assimilate into the new Igen, Quelloran discovered that the Newtimers had no intention of acknowledging his Master status. Being quite elderly and in poor health, he opted to step back and enter a quiet retirement, and he plans to live out the rest of his days at Igen with Aefe. For his youngest child and only daughter, however, he wants more. Upset and embittered by his treatment upon arrival at Igen, he sees Southern Weyr as the better choice, and he has sent his youngest child and only daughter, Quae, to travel there and become an apprentice.

As for Quae's brothers, Loraf chose to stay behind with his family, as his young son's health was too frail to make the jump Between. Fellor chose to stay, too. Aquell cam forward in time to Igen Weyr, attempting to navigate the crafting system there and supporting his elderly parents. Rafan, now R'fan, is a bluerider at High Reaches Weyr, where he is currently performing well but lives in some fear of not living up to their high standards.
