Face Claim: https://faestock.deviantart.com/

ImagePhysical Features:
Alona is a 5'5", 148 lb young woman. Her weight is distributed mostly in her legs and hips, with thin arms and a moderate bust. Her skin is tanned from a life near the sea, with a few freckles on her face and shoulders. Other from a few miscellaneous scars on her knuckles and ankles from childhood accidents, her skin is unblemished.

Her eyes are wide, round, and a bright sapphire-blue, with dark lashes. Her hair is straight and brass-colored, reaching down towards her chest. Usually, she keeps it held back with a piece of dark cloth.

She has been known to call her sense of style 'eclectic', but in all honesty, it would be more accurate to say that she doesn't have one at all. If she sees something she likes, and she can afford it, she will throw it on, regardless of what else she may be wearing. In general, prefers loose clothing in warm colors, held together with a sash, or belt.

 
History
Concept:
Alona is a person filled with the hopefulness attached to youth. That is not to say that she is entirely naive, but it must be said that her optimism is high. While not innately skilled, she is a person driven by a passion to create and is not easily deterred by failure. Her love of music is strong, as is her interest in history and foreign cultures. This has given her a strong amount of ambition, not to mention a dedication to her crafts. Because of this, she is eager to learn any kind of art she can find, though at times she can get ahead of herself and go beyond her talents, with disastrous results.


Backstory:
The Hallorans come from a fairly unassuming background and have existed in Zeltiva for a hefty handful of generations, descending many long years ago from a gnosis-less Svefra that decided to settle himself down in the port. Most of the men in the family become sailors at the local docks, with the women either pursuing mercantile jobs or a life tied to the university. They are a small family in the grand scheme of the town, but their hard work has made up part of the backbone of her economy.

Alona was the product of a passing sailor and Layla Halloran, a weaver involved in one of the textile shops down the West Street. She was raised by her, and an uncle who both worked as a sailor at the docks and as a huntsman, depending on the needs of the season. She was a well-behaved child, at least compared to her cousins. In truth, she enjoyed exploring, and would often stray from her mother in order to look around the city on her own. She never wandered far, however, and if her cousins did not find her, her mother would always manage to.

When she turned ten, her mother began a plan to counteract her curiosity. As a birthday present, she was given an old fiddle made by her grandfather and promised to teach her to play. In her own childhood, Layla had grown a passion for music, and through her lessons every evening, managed to carry over that love to Alona. The young girl took up the instrument eagerly, and while she could not read the notes, she managed to learn many songs common to Zeltiva by heart instead.

As she grew through her teenage years, she split time between songs with her mother, hunting with her uncle, and an apprenticeship with a local carpenter. She no longer wandered blindly across the streets, but she did keep her ears out, listening to bits of conversations about other lands, and great tales. These drove her to plan a life of adventure for herself. She by no means wished for great riches, but still... The thought of seeing all of those sights for herself was tempting, very tempting. One day she'd go out there, even just to Syliras at the minimum, maybe.

Her thoughts, however, were grounded momentarily by the death of her mother. It calmed her heart somewhat to know that it was not a sudden tragedy. She had been ill for nearly a year, and at least she died in her sleep, painless... That left her alone in her family's cottage, her uncle and cousins left on a journey off on one of Zeltiva's many trade routes, nearly a whole season she spent on her own. She kept to her apprenticeship, using the craft to keep her mind clear and focused on something beyond the empty cottage.

After about two years, her work paid off and she was granted the title of journeyman, along with an offer. By pure happenstance, her master had been offered a place in a new colony far across the landmass in Falyndar. However, he was growing old and did not want to venture so far this late in life. Instead, he gave the chance to Alona to go in his stead, as an opportunity to broaden her horizons. Excitedly, she agreed and made plans to leave on the next boat out of the port towards Syka. A long trip, to be sure, but she was determined to do her best.
