Bellamia hated the way she looked. She either viewed herself as very boring and average or a freak of nature. She was not vain, she just did not appreciate her appearance as others might. Her long, straight hair was so pale a blond it was said to be platinum in color. Though she desired to have gorgeous tan skin, hers was very light and was forever being threatened by the sun. If she wasn't careful, she would burn. She did not have freckles. She held no blemishes or scars of any merit worth noting. Her build was very average, a little too 'healthy' to be viewed as slender. Not curved enough to be stocky or stout. She was just...average. Her height was the same way. She was not petite and she was not tall. At 5' 6" she was easily lost in a crowd of many others of her stature and build. Except for her weird hair and light blue eyes, she might be able to go through life unnoticed.
Sometimes she liked the idea of blending in and so would put her hair in tight braids and wrap them up into a bun or put it in a ponytail and cover it all with a head scarf of insignificant coloring, usually in tan, brown or faded blue or green colors. She wore plain, simple clothing, usually long dresses with hand-me-down shoes or ankle-high boots. Despite her own reservations about her looks, some might actually see her as being exceptionally beautiful. Others would be even more cruel in their views of her than she was of herself and view her as being horribly ugly. Though her view of being a freak sometimes really wasn't all that far off. Thankfully, she did not think about her looks very often. She just went through life learning the domestics on how to be a proper daughter and someday wife. She kept herself neat and presentable and clean. Well, as clean as she could. Sometimes she worked in the fields during harvest and planting. It was hard to keep clean then. She was modest in her clothing choices. She was not a prissy thing that was afraid of getting dirty. But she did view being neat and tidy with good hygiene an important part of being a young woman, when she wasn't busy getting a sunburn in the fields that is.
Observant, Focused, Gentle, Hard-working, Quiet, Brash
Some were oblivious to those around them, to situations, to other's emotions. Bellamia was thankfully not one of them. She was an observant one and truly cared about what she saw. Her gentle nature wanted to help where there was a need in anyway that she could, be it emotional or a task that needed doing. She was not the sort to shrink back from work. Far from it. Bellamia was a hard-worker and enjoyed the sense of accomplishment that came along with a job well done. To make sure that whatever task she was working on really was done well, she kept her focus upon the task at hand. Though she sounds like a wonderful individual she is not without her faults. Her most glaring one in her mind is that sometimes her mouth gets the better of her. When she is not her usual quiet self, when something triggers her mouth to speak before her good sense has put a stop to it, she will be very brash and straight-forward sometimes in what she might say. She hates this about herself but can't seem to stop it.
Born at Golden Flight Hold. She is the third born. She has two older sisters that either scolded her or babied her. Bossy one moment and endearing the next. One moment annoying and the next minute the best friends a sister could ever have. After Bellamia came three other siblings. Two brothers and the youngest was another sister. Growing up in a farming hold, she helped along with the rest of her siblings and parents when work was to be done in the fields. With her fair skin and very pale hair, she burned rather easily and was allowed to work inside cooking, cleaning and other such domestics when it wasn't planting or harvesting season. Personally she was grateful not to get burned but still desired the feel of the wind upon her face and the smells of the rich fields. Wearing head scarves and gloves helped some so that she could go out every so often.
Her two older sisters were married off and were pleased for it. One was given to a multi-generational farmer man who was gentle and kind. The other was given to a harper that taught children. He had a fun sense of humor and was patient with Bellamia and her younger siblings. And he made her blush sometimes when she began to appreciate his good looks when he came by the home with his wife, her sister. It was a very awkward adjustment and soon she was able to put him out of her mind and focused on her work. Part of her tasks in the home and hold was to assist with any minor healing that was needed. She was gentle, focused and observant to their moods and needs. Mostly she stayed quiet while she worked but sometimes she would get flustered and then the trait on her personality she hated the most would surface. She's 'say it like it is'. Yes, sometimes she would become brash. She'd feel bad every time but it was something she had yet to be able to control.
Being brash was the least of her worries though. When she was thirteen horrible fires raged around Golden Flight Hold. Though the efforts to put them out were valiant many lost their homes to the inferno. Some were injured and a few died. No one really knew what had caused those devastating fires but it would forever change her life. One of the families that were displaced was her own. Leaving everything she had ever known behind, Bellamia traveled with her family, who thankfully had all survived to Rainbow Mist Weyr. Her two sisters that had left the family in marriage were also still alive. Their homes were thankfully spared and so they stayed to help rebuild and help others to make the Hold what it had once been.
Two turns later, Bellamia still felt like a refugee at the weyr. She was a kind and gentle sort but she wasn't in the habit anymore of being very sociable. She stayed quiet and blended into the crowd of those that had made the weyr their new home. She missed Golden Flight Hold. She missed her older sisters. She missed her old life. What she did not know was that a new life for her was just around the corner. A life she had never considered before but once the idea was opened to her, her heart would be forever changed. She would meet a lifewing. That lifewing would save her life in more ways than one.
