Erriba is a pretty girl, but somewhat plain. She has lightly tanned skin, and looks more elf than human. She has the characteristic pointed ears, albeit somewhat more rounded than a full-elf, and a heart-shaped face. She has a human nose, with elven eyes - large, almond-shaped and with long lashes. The most striking features are her beautiful stormy blue eyes. Her thick strawberry blond hair falls around her face in waves, framing it in a halo of gold. Despite her individually beautiful features, the overall impression is forgettable.
Erriba seldom speaks unless it is necessary. She is a great actress, and uses her ability in many ways. Her father, whom she loves to please, likes her to act in a theatre, so she does. But she most often uses her talent in deceiving others - innocently, of course. She is a lovely girl once you get to know her, and she forms lifetime relationships, but she also has a flare for trickery and fun.
Erriba was raised by her elven father after her human mother died in childbirth. Aorun raised her as he only knew how. As a boy. Erriba - named after her mother - is a real tom-boy. When she was younger, she scuffed her knees at every chance, climbed innumerable trees and was hardly ever seen with girls. The girls of her neighbourhood thought her strange, never wearing any of the pretty dresses they were so fond of, and never really caring what she looked like. A rumour went around that she didnít wash her hair at all! Until recently, she hadnít. It was usually matted and un-brushed, just hastily tucked behind her ear as she went off to climb another tree.
When her elder sister married, Erriba - who was fourteen at the time - was hurt. She thought her beloved sibling didnít like her any more, and decided that it was time to grow up. If not for anything else, to gain friendship with Lorrel again. Of course, Lorrel hadnít ever stopped loving her little sister. And as maturity caught up with them, the sisters became even better friends.
Erriba is now fully aware of her attractiveness. She has done almost a complete turn around. She enjoys washing and brushing her hair frequently, likes to look nice, and has - as if overnight - gained the maturity and experience far beyond her years. This, however, has done nothing to stop her thieving. She has always been an experienced thief - her father has no idea where she got it from and has always discouraged it - but she has now taken it to a professional status. Most people who know her are confounded by the seeming out-of-character choice of craft, but that is probably because she does it so well. Aorun has finally accepted this, and is now supportive of her chosen path - so long as she is intelligent about it.
At an amazing and unique clutch at Keandyn Weyr on the world of Pern, Erriba's life took an unexpected turn. She Impressed. Bonded with a stunning rainbow coloured dragon called Neoladonalith. But never fear: she wouldn't stray too far from her favourite pastime!
