Anvora looks like, and is, a woman who takes a great deal of care in maintaining her appearance. Her black hair is meticulously styled, evenly cut and brushed so it hangs in long glossy waves to her shoulder blades. She spends several minutes every morning applying makeup to her lips and around her eyes. Her nails are kept clean and neat, and a vaguely spicy scent hangs around her from the perfume she applies every time she has finished bathing. Her clothes, although hardly ornate, always fit well and are kept in good repair. She enjoys experimenting with different styles and colours, both with her wardrobe and makeup, and spends a good chunk of her income indulging this interest. She even has a pair of rings piercing her earlobes and several more piercing the upper edge of her ears, ornamentations she indulged in both out of personal interest and as as a way of spiting her overbearing father.
Anvora is a tall woman, standing five-foot-ten-inches when barefoot, and considering her fondness for heeled boots, this means she is frequently looming over other women and stands taller than quite a few men as well. Her body is naturally large-hipped and small-waisted, with a generous bust that she has no qualms about showcasing on a regular basis. Due to her fondness for swimming and other cardio-intensive activities, her limbs are strong and she has a vaguely athletic build underlying the generous padding on her body. Anvora’s kohl-rimmed eyes are brown, a dark shade which contrasts with the golden-tinted colour of her skin. Her face is slightly strong-featured, with prominent cheekbones and a strong jaw, full lips, and a hawkish beak of a nose. Most people who know her for any length of time will get to see her arrange these features in a teasing smile for their benefit, accompanied with anything from a veiled insult to innuendo. Although she tends to be straight-backed and have good posture overall, it can be difficult to tell a lot of the time given Anvora’s propensity for leaning on, casually embracing, or otherwise getting in other people’s space. One would think her playful, and often flirtatious, demeanour would be at odds with the mantle of dignity she drapes over herself, but somehow she manages to pull them both off without conflict.
Well, most of the time.

Anvora is a vivacious woman, a trait which colours everything about her from her oft-seen mischievous grins to her unapologetically bold mannerisms. A demure maiden she is not; she knows what she wants and isn’t shy about letting other people know, flirting shamelessly with men and women alike, sometimes both within the space of a day. She loves being alive, loves doing new things and overcoming challenges which she'd never thought possible before. If there's something difficult that needs doing, maneuver just right and there's a good chance you can get her to do it, so long as you phrase it in a compelling way. She has no patience for busywork and frequently abandons menial tasks halfway through if she gets bored with them, preferring to spend her time socialising or pursuing projects which have captured her interest. Only subjects of great personal importance warrant enough attention for her to pursue them longterm, and she tackles such projects tenaciously.
Anvora could be called self- centered; her guiding principles in life revolve around making herself happy, doing things she enjoys, and experiencing new things to enrich her own life experience. However, it would be doing her a disservice to stop there. Anvora has a wealth of goodwill towards other people; she is generous with her time, seeking to share her own happiness with loved ones at every opportunity, and constantly strives to acquire for others the same freedoms which she herself values most. Typically, she maintains a very ‘elder sister’ attitude towards most everyone she interacts with. Taking the safety and well-being of others into account is second-nature to her, which can mean that she comes across as smothering to some people whom she deems as needing more care than others. Those in particular whom she cares for intimately will find her sticking her nose into their inadequacies and struggles, in certain cases even going so far as to try to solve their problems herself.
Anvora has a harder side to her as well, one that rears its head often when it comes to people who don’t act with the level of courtesy she thinks is required of them; the maternal affection she affords to some translates easily to condescension which she is not shy about expressing. Though not usually one to resort to violence, she becomes vicious in the defense of those she holds dear and won't hesitate to take the most direct route to securing safety for a loved one. Protective instincts aside, it’s also not uncommon to see her trading barbs with anyone who has a differing opinion from her when it comes to subjects of personal importance. She's stubborn to a fault, and while that can be a good thing if she needs to buckle down and take care of a vital task, it also often means she’ll cling to a difficult position rather than back down and lose face.

2889 . Anvora is born in the winter in a minor port hold on the Tillek peninsula. Although her father is the younger brother of the current holder, and therefore unlikely to succeed him, his ambitious nature and impressive dowry from his Ista-born wife mean that their family is decidedly well-off. She is spoiled by her parents and wants for nothing as a young child. From birth she is surrounded by seacrafters, and quickly learns an abiding love and respect for the ocean.
2895 . Shortly before she turns six, Anvora becomes an older sister. Despite having to share her parents' attention with Kaneva, Anvora soon takes to her baby sibling and dotes on her alongside her parents and the family's beloved canine, Whitei, who is extremely calm and is so large that he can carry Anvora on his back.
