Personality

Esma is a no-nonsense woman. She has no patience for jokesters or those selling things she does not need. She has a dry sense of humor towards most people; only close friends can get her to crack a smile or even let out a laugh. That requires being her friend, though, and that can be difficult to do. She enjoys hard work, and appreciates those who think so as well. This is one reason she came to Syka; to work hard and be surrounded by those who do the same. This also means she doesn't much care for young children; she has no desire to have any of her own, and mostly sees them as "useless", loud and obnoxious. Teenagers are when she starts being able to handle younger people.

Those who get to know Esma on at least a basic level know she is very trustworthy and dependable. When she makes a promise, she doesn't break it under any circumstances. She's loyal to friends and companions, and to the people of Syka. However she can come off as harsh and blunt when it comes to honesty. She isn't afraid to say it like it is, and that can make her unlikable to some.

Image
"Connex"
Breed: Silkena
Size: Medium
Color: Black

Connex was given as a parting gift from her parents when Esma left for Syka. He is watchful, attentive, and fast. Though he is mostly used for hunting, Esma lets him in her home as a companion as well. He sleeps on the couches most of the time, but will occasionally sleep with her on her bed. With strangers he is wary, but not immediately aggressive. When strangers are over, he doesn't sleep unless they are staying overnight; even then, he will sleep in Esma's bedroom while the strangers sleep out in the main room. With friends of Esma, he is more comfortable and won't be on constant watch, though the only time he is truly calm and relaxed around is when he and Esma are alone. He is not child-friendly, though neither is Esma.

History

Esma was the only child born to Yanoro and Nadya Bates. They lived in Syliras, in the Illythian District. They were quite wealthy, Yanoro being a Syliran Knight and Nadya being a Silkena breeder. Much of Esma's childhood involved going to parties in the Illythian Ballroom and watching shows at the theatre. Her schooling was done with a tutor at home, so she didn't go out and meet peers often. Looking back, she considers her childhood "boring and lonely".

As she grew into a young woman, Esma started getting hopeful suitors looking for her hand in marriage. None of them amused her, though, and definitely didn't seduce her. She had no interest in marriage, because that would require her staying in a lonely upperclass lifestyle, possibly having children - which she did not want. So she turned them all down, at first telling them why before eventually saying simply she did not want to get married to anyone. Not with how things were planning to be, at least. If she got married, she would want to get married under different circumstances with different goals.

She also was offered many jobs through the years. They were all simple jobs, like selling clothes or equipment and goods for travelers. But as she grew older, Esma wanted to leave Syliras completely, and make a living doing what she considered "real work", mainly hunting and creating tools for others to use. These were jobs that she believed benefited everyone, not just upperclassmen who could afford it.

When she heard about the new settlement Syka, and how everyone would be working together to build it, she was overjoyed. That was exactly what she wanted! She made plans to travel there, and use her skills as a carver and hunter to contribute to the settlement. Everyone needed tools, after all, and she could make them. However her skills weren't quite expert level, and she only knew how to work with wood - not stone or metal. But that was her goal: develop these skills while helping build Syka into a proper settlement.

In Summer of 518, she bought a ticket on a trading ship and headed for Syka. She arrived just as Fall was beginning.
