Parents: Kareela & Rick
Birthplace: Soul Star Hold
Rank: Sr. Apprentice, Sr. Weyrling
Ainyah has shoulder-length strawberry-blonde hair that was once cut short and layered but has long since grown out of the style. She wears it tied back - although most of it falls around her face when she does so. Her eyes are pale grey-green and her skin milky. She's not the tallest of girls, standing at just 5'3", with a slight frame that she's hoping is yet to fill out to womanly proportions.
Ainyah is a casual, carefree sort of girl who takes life as she's handed it. If she wants something, she'll work hard to get it, and she rarely forgets. These qualities makes her a good friend, and a better enemy.
Ainyah, known to her friends as Ani, was born in an isolated Hold called Soul Star Hold for the lake on whose shores it sits. Her parents, Kareela and Rick, were minor holders in the area and ran a strong household for their only daughter. Ainyah grew up with the few children her age at the small Hold, having a relatively normal and happy childhood. At age twelve she was apprenticed to the local Scribe and was an apt student, enjoying the challenging craft and spending most of her time indoors to participate in as many classes as she could manage. When she walked the tables to Senior Apprentice, her parents gave her a rare gift of a firelizard egg, which hatched to green Tiga. The most recent accomplishment of Ainyah's ordinary life is certainly the most extraordinary she could hope to achieve. A Searchrider from one Dawn Sisters Weyr came to the Hold unannounced and stole her away to stand for a clutch hardening at their Sands. She failed the first, and second times, but third time lucky came true. Ainyah Impressed the beautiful green Sulivith and now they're training for the next step in their lives. Adulthood - and Thread.
