Character Profile: Silay (May contain spoilers)

Name: Silay Gallegis
Age: 19
Height: 5’5”
Hair: Dark brown
Eyes: Brown
Destiny/Occupation: Unknown

Description: Silay is about average height for a young woman in Ohicink. She has dark brown hair (almost black), which she typically wears in a braid that starts at the base of her neck and hangs down to just between her shoulder blades. She also wears a thin hair-band, to keep stray strands of hair out of her eyes. A native of Dagrosa, she expected to know her destiny. However, for some unknown reason, no form of magic, including fortune telling, works on her.

Since she’s travelling light, she wears pretty much the same outfit for most of the story. Her shoes are soft leather (no laces) and go to just above her ankles (sort of like high-tops). She wears dark-green trousers made of twill-weaved cotton. Her top is like a tunic. Made of plain-weaved, un-dyed linen, it has a boat neck collar and hangs straight to her waist, where it splits on either side and continues to about 3 inches above her knees. There’s a simple embroidered edged on the collar and down the side slits. The sleeves go down to about 3 inches above her wrists.

She also carries a leather knapsack and wears a small leather pouch concealed around her waist containing the Farstone. Also around her waist is a belt holding her sheathed dagger. In the knapsack is a gray, un-dyed wool cloak. You won’t see the cloak very often, because it’s pretty warm in Ohicink, and doesn’t rain very much.

Weather/setting note: Most fantasies I read feel like they’re set somewhere resembling the British Isle’s. For some reason, the fantasy worlds I imagine often tend to be more like the Mediterranean.
Sorry for all the extraneous details about the clothes...I'd recently taken up weaving when I wrote this, and I have a slight fiber addiction.
