Description: A wild, wavy mane of auburn hair runs down past Ronja's shoulders, and given some semblance of fashion by braids woven in and beads threaded on here and there. Her skin is as sun-baked as her way-out-west islander drawl. Large, sparkling, thickly-lashed hazel eyes fail to keep any secrets as to her emotional state. The rest of her face follows suit, with full lips well-suited to both grins and pouts, and an elegantly slanted nose that can still perfectly crinkle when needed. She has the strong, thin build of someone whose level of activity outweighs their caloric intake, with only slight nods to feminine curves in the traditional model. From her neck down, her flesh is inked with a motley collection of tattoos. Rather than thematically unified works of fine art, her tattoos read like a collection of souvenirs, haphazardly assembled, often crude in their linework and sometimes quite rude in their content.
Personality: Ronja is a free-spirit of the water. She's never been settled in one place. She has stories to tell - it's hard to tell what's real and what may just be on the edge of fantasy. She's seen things and done things that have brought her both fame and notoriety. Quick with a rapier, but quicker with her tongue, she's charismatic, a natural charmer, and exudes a fluid, open personality that just bubbles beneath a surface of wanderlust and adventure.
Background: Ronja Sandreef has only known the sea her whole life. She was born on a cog of the fleet of Westrock Reach. She grew up between her parents on crossings between the Mourning Isles and Arx. She saw what she thought would be the end of her life when her mother was murdered during a pirate raid upon the ship they were on. Ronja, all of eight, attempted to fight back valiantly - and it was that fight and not begging for her life that caused the Pirate Captain that raided their ship to take her in. She was made to work and earn her keep, just like any other pirate.
Over the next decade, she worked her way up the ranks, eventually becoming the first mate of her own ship. Then she took over as Captain. She became known for her flash and open attacks in the Vast, with little fear of repercussion. She had assumed her father had abandoned her - until she was reading the Captain's old blacks and found out that word was sent that she had passed. With this in mind, she reached out to her father, now the Sword of Westrock Reach and wanted to make a connection. Thorley's response 'Prove it' set her on a path that turned her against the Pirate King and she fought against the Gyre. Her ship was heavily damaged in the contact and she now finds herself both under repair - and sought by both her former associates and those that she now tries to find her place with.
