Be courageous! Try something new! Unless that something is getting stabbed in the arm.
Description: Freckles. Nearly every inch of this woman's visible skin seems to be covered in the tiny sun-kissed spots, warm brown against her pale skin. She is a bit taller and carries more muscle than the average woman, and there is not even a hint of sway in her stride. Those who might call her pretty are usually referring to the full cupid's bow in her lips, for none of her other features are at all remarkable. Her eyes are plain blue. Her hair is light brown, and usually braided and pinned to her head to hide its length.
Personality: Jolly and energetic, Emmerly only spends any time completely still if she's asleep or on the job. Her working face lacks the solemnity some manage to achieve, a smile shining even in the midst of battle. Outside of the job, you'll often find an excitedly tapping foot or an arm waving in animated conversation. She's quick with a smile or a laugh, and has a hard time holding a grudge, her temper fading out as quick as it flares up.
Background: Emmerly's memories of the days before the fall of Tyde are filled with shouted arguments between the father who died for the rebellion, and the mother who took her child away from it. Her mother found a couple fellow soldiers willing to sell their skills, and raised her child to follow in the same path. When she was a teen, her mother's small group merged into the Redwood mercenaries, and Emmerly joined at adulthood. After several years of competition and comparison with her mother, Emmerly accepted an invitation to join her old friend Ajax, jumping at the chance for a new start out of her mother's shadow.
