Posting Fort Weyr


Karona has light brown hair, bordering on red, that reaches to her shoulders. It starts out straight, but becomes wavy around the jawline, almost curly. Her eyes are dark green. She's of average height, and her build seems to have a tendency towards the slender end of the scale, but her work as a smith has given her muscles, muscles that almost look out of place on her frame.

Karona dresses very plainly, in neutral tones, browns, tans, creams. She always wears trousers and a long sleeved shirt, a sturdy pair of boots, and sometimes a warm coat, depending on the weather.

She's in her early twenties and wears the knot of a Journeyman Smith posted to Fort Weyr.


Karona was born in a northern Hold to travelling parents, her father was a journeyman Harper by the name of Karell, and her mother Leona was at the time working odd-jobs around Pern. As soon as she was old enough, she was sent to live with Leona's parents in Telgar Weyr, and she still considers that Weyr her birthplace. When she was just a toddler, her parents returned to Telgar, and took over caring for their daughter. It wasn't long before her mother was searched, impressing brown Lakareth. A few turns later, Karona and her parents moved to Ierne Weyrhold, as Leona wanted to be closer to the dragonhealing school, to see if anyone could help Lakareth's leg. Karona grew to like Ierne, she made friends there, and life was good.

After the birth of her little brother, when Karona was ten, Leona got antsy, and decided it was time to move again. They resettled in Ista Weyr, though Karona was not at all happy with this, and it drove a wedge between her and her mother. When Karona turned twelve, she seized her opportunity to leave, and applied to several crafts, joining the first that would take her, the smiths, and departing for the craft hall as soon as she was accepted.

Though she dislikes her mother, Karona shares the woman's work ethic, to an extent. She does work hard, but a part of her resents the fact that she even has to work, the spoilt little girl nurtured by her father's lavish gifts and adoring attention.
