Player Rea


Thessa grew up outside of Ista, and from a young age, loved the shipfish. Her parents are both with the Seacraft as fishermen. She's got four siblings, two younger and two older in various crafts. When she came of age, she joined the dolphin craft as an apprentice at the Crafthall and has never looked back. She has found her specialty as a dolphinealer, taking care of the dolphins themselves while also helping normal healers with sonar. She's also helped out during Search and Rescue events. A turn ago, a dolphin by the name of Nilima, choose her to be partners with. They'd worked well together several times before Nilima made the final choice to call Thessa partner.


Cute is this brunette with a certain girl-next-door look that often makes her look younger than she is. The look of innocence mixed with her short stature is quite the bane to put up with at times. Her hair is several shades of brunette with hints of blond or sometimes red in it depending on the season. It's thick and soft but short and shaggy, as if she carelessly takes scissors to it whenever it gets in the way, staying well above her shoulders though long enough at the front to tuck behind her ears. The rich earthy color of her hair makes the light color of her eyes stand out all the more within the contours of her face; a lovely blue-brown hazel. While she stands barely over five feet in her shoes, she is well toned from her time spent in the water swimming.

Generally, she's found wearing trousers in dolphin blue paired with a tunic of white. Sometimes, a blue jacket is worn if the weather is cool enough. On her feet or sandals or boots. Upon her shoulder is the cords and knot in blue and white of a Journeyman of the Dolphin Craft.

Name Desc
Nutso Deliriously enraged with utter, convinced spirit, a torrent of debris-infested water surges throughout deep, dulled color-choked hide, furiously flinging about to every long, wiry limb and the passionate, deranged blue whirlwind orbs. Withheld by no blockade, the glittering waters crash and despoil all they dare touch, in a twisting, wild style of pure insanity, lithe and devious with long, tattering claws; o'er land and through the hills, all are swept up in fury, madness, and utter exhilaration.
Verve Smaller than usual, this delicate and fragile creature hums with pure energy, always moving, never still. Verdancy clings like a cloak, enfolding her within it's depths before allowing peeks of a soft dappled yellow-green to be seen - the color highlighting her muzzle and easing down her neck before it's lost within the darkness beyond. Dark forest clings to her hide before melting away to reveal the lighter yellow-green at paws and mid-way down her tail. Wingsails are outlined, shown off to perfection, by the darker green, a surprising rainbow of color swirling across their length.
