OOC Name: Rainie
She goes where the wind suggests she goes,
Got a spirit that can't be tamed,
She's a calico pony on an open plain
22 | Female | Jm. Sailor
Despite being a sailor for a good portion of her life, Tetra is a woman and there is no denying it. While she has an average bust, she certainly boasts a pair of wide hips that make for some very generous curves that men admire. Long legs compliant her curves, making her look not too stocky. Despite all the works that she has done, fat does remain on her, collecting in her thighs and hips. Surprisingly, her arms and shoulders are well toned from Turns spent on pulling riggings, mopping decks and pulling in nets. Freckles also decorate her shoulders and across her collar bone against pale tanned skin.
Her face is round and long with with deep set green eyes and heavy lids. Her mouth is wide but with lips that still considered desirable. Her nose is slightly upturned yet none of it seems to bother her. Her hair is usually a dark auburn though time in the sun has brought out the natural red. When colder weather comes around, the darker hues take over making her hair look darker then what it is. Her hair is long and falls in loose waves with no rhyme or reason. Tetra often keeps her hair loose and free, with no Thread to worry about.
Clothing is whatever suits her mood at the time but loose tunics and skirts seem to be the preferred thing. Her chosen colors are bright and vibrant, full of life and hard to miss. Yet trousers are worn when needed.
Imaginative ; A dreamer at heart, thoughts of what could be and what is out there often coat her thoughts. The idea of something alien and unusual, that it could be REAL inspires the romance in her. One might even dare to call her philosophical with her ponderings and day dreams of worlds beyond this one, what they could be, all those possibilities. Sadly, she can often get caught up in her own imagination, that many have to remind her to return her feet back onto REAL solid ground and leave the clouds.
Obedient; Due to working on a ship for a good part of her life, obedience has been drilled into her. Rarely one to question orders, she carries them out without much complaint on her part. It allows for a fast reaction when time of the essence and a life can hang in the balance. One would suspect that she would never disobey given orders but there is always a time and place to break rules.
Adventurous ; Exploration is nearly second nature with all her daydreams of what could be out there. The chance to discovery something new only fuels her imagination and drive to see what is all out there with her own two eyes. Life is too short to be afraid of the unknown and not everything new is bad. Sure, the prospect of death isn't exactly appealing but we all have to die at some point. She would be rather on the shores of something new and amazing then stuck in the same old thing were all the luster of it has been drained away.
Placid ; A lover not a fighter and can easily be called a push over. When she is on her own time, she doesn't expend more energy then she has to. It isn't hard to please her either and complaints about things are rare. She has no problem in going along with things, if only because someone else decided to take charge. Perhaps its because it takes too much effort to actually take charge and she is more happy to go along for the ride.
Indulgent ; What she likes, she LIKES. Certainly not one to turn away from what she enjoys and over excess comes easy. She would rather be comfortable and happy, even if it isn't always practical. Those she is close to often find themselves with gifts of some sort as sharing is caring. Someone forget to tell her to stop.
Spontaneous ; Surprisingly with her mellow personality is the sudden bursts of energy she gets. When an idea comes, she usually wants to do it now and not later. It can make her flippant about things but also unpredictable. You never know when she might decide that they should do something or go somewhere...
