Jeneeva
35676724

Jeneeva was born and raised on a small farmcot near the sea on Ista Isle. Her mother died when she was eleven turns old, leaving her abusive father to raise her and her siblings. When she was twelve she ran away from home to pursue her dream of becoming a Harper. She has an older brother Narek; their father's favorite who constantly bullies his younger sisters and is used to getting whatever he wants, even if he has to break a few rules to get it. This has gained Narek a bit of infamy around Ista Weyr and Ista Island as a whole. Her sister Janessa is her identical twin and the older of the two by three minutes. Janessa is constantly looking out for her twin, and tends to be the more blunt and confident of the two. She also has a younger sister named Lenya who adores her older sisters and despises her brother. Jeneeva was posted as a Harper apprentice to Ista Weyr when she was almost fiften and has since spent a turn living at the Weyr. Her twin Janessa is an apprentice to Master Weaver Tobias and also posted to Ista Weyr.

Though close to her twin sister Jeneeva has formed a very strong bond with Orinlatan whom she cares a lot for. She also has a little sister type of relationship with Orin's older brother Darius. Before being Searched by Kaijuth and Ai'den, Jeneeva was a Harper apprentice with a talent for composition. She's not one to admit to her talents often though as she has a large problem with self-confidence. Her problem is so bad that when she's really nervous or in uncomfortable situations she sometimes stammers as she speaks. Generally Jen is sweet and caring and wants to help others though her attempts are sometimes met with mixed results. She can also be a bit naive and too eager to please, to the point where she lets people walk all over her.

Candidate Questions

1) Tell us about your character's background. Where did they grow up? What was their childhood like? Do they have siblings? Lots of extended family?

2) Who is your character close to now? Fellow crafters, residents, lots of people, or a few in particular?

Janessa: Janessa is an apprentice Weaver posted to Ista Weyr and Jeneeva's twin sister. The pair share almost everything with one another and Janessa is fiercely protective of her twin. Janessa is often snarky and sarcastic and tries to act tough. Jeneeva loves her twin more than just about anybody

Orinlatan: Orin is the only person Jeneeva cares for more than her twin sister. The two candidates are very close and before becoming candidates they were probably far closer than they should have been at their ages. They've kept a strong bond though and are trying to keep things from getting physical until they're a bit older.

Darius: Darius is like a big brother to Jeneeva and he thinks of her as a kid sister. The pair often call each other "Big Brother" and "L'il sister" and spend a lot of time together in their evenings.

Q'luin: Jeneeva looks up to Q'luin almost as much as Orin does but she isn't as hero worshippy as Orin about it. She can see Q'luin's faults but cares for him anyway. Sometimes in her concern for Q'luin or in attempts to help him she says or does the wrong thing, often landing her in trouble, but she hardly ever gives up on him

3) What personality trait or background element do you like most about your character? How would you like to build on that?

I like the fact that she's always wanting to help others and hates seeing others suffering. I think her learning dragonhealing would help foster that quality and allow her to actually help rather than just watching and feeling useless, which might help her with her confidence problems.

4) What would you change about your character if you could? How might others help you do this?

I would change her lack of confidence if I could. I think others might help her do this by allowing her to do things that make her feel useful and not so worthless. Even small things like first aid on a scrape or helping others with lessons or learning to do a chore properly would help her a lot.
