Who is Ryli?


Quite a height for a young woman, Ryli is, brushing 5'9. Tall and long and lean, svelte lines and lissome limbs collaborate to present a slim blonde vision: her curves are slim, while light muscle conspires just enough to keep her from looking rangy. Though given to loose clothing, when skin is shown it is generously peppered with freckles on pale-milk canvas: and when displayed on her face, they pop with rampant glee on sun-kissed cheekbones and straight nose. Her hair is as fair as her skin, and moreso: a shade warmer than milk, pristine blonde falls to her shoulders, cut in brief layers to flutter about her collarbone. Cool features are measured and eloquently balanced, displaying an elegant beauty which carresses a pixie's jaw and those prettily freckled cheekbones. Blue eyes are her most striking asset, and they dance with emotion when need be: a pale slate-sky in color, almond shape canted ever so slightly upwards.


In testament to fall, Ryli is wearing a loose, long-sleeved, light blue dress with a darker blue sash that emphasizes her slim waist. The skirt ends about mid-calf and is loose enough to have a decided *swish-swish* to it. On her feet are strappy sandals the color of dark sandalwood.

Ryli is… Well, Ryli just is. To some, she might be loony. To others, she might be charming. To others, still, she might be just another ordinary girl with a pretty face that lives in a weyr. She's bound and determined not to end her life in anonymity. Thus, she is working on her memoir, decided one day on a whimsy. This girl is part whimsy, part grounded level-headedness, enough curiosity to keep Tyrar on the verge of a heart-attack, and enough naivete to land her in embarrassing situations. She's not graceful, for all her graceful lines, usually she ends up stumbling, falling, or tripping her way through life.

In general, when she is not busy with chores and such, she can be found either working on her memoir or at the beach. She holds a special love for Istan's pretty beaches! And it is not hard to lure her into mischief, not with the promise of curiosities!

Anything else… can be found out during RP!

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?

Ryli is from Bitra Hold, younger sister to Tyrar, whose father is heavily into runners and whose mother is a healer. With permission from her mother and father, she's come to Ista to be closer to her big brother — who she /adores/. Idolizes even. She's encouraged by her parents to leave Bitra because of the rough nature of the Hold and the lack of big brothers to look after her. Ryli is a little too gullible, a little too klutzy, and a little too curious for her own good. Ista Weyr was chosen to be near enough to Tyrar, but far enough away to ensure she learns to stand on her own two feet. She is familiar with runners, being Daddy's little girl. Familiar enough with them to work in the stables, at least.

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

Ryli is extremely close to her brothers, Tyrar and Tryslan. Tyrar is a bit over-protective (just a bit!) and she tends to view him as a stifler of fun. Klohi is a recent acquaintance, and all the more exciting because she seems to be of about the same age as Ryli! Q'luin is an enigma, and one that seems to only be encountered in the dark of night, but there are always curiosities when they do meet.

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

I really like two things about Ryli: Her drive to be something more and her embarrassing habit of tripping and falling. She wants to be more than this life offers, to be something worthy of her memoir. So that when her life is done, there is something tangible left behind that people will want to read. In that sense, I guess I like her fear the best; the fear of having wasted her life and at the end of it, having nothing left to show. It's something that, as humans, we all wonder and drive towards a purpose in our lives. Ryli is no different, she just wants that purpose to be something everyone will remember. Or at the very least, make her memoir popular.

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

I really wouldn't change anything. Ryli is as Ryli does and her growth is wholly dependent upon her experiences in life. I'd rather be surprised with the organic flow of RP in how she develops than work towards a specific trait change.
