Physical description: Filthy chesnut toned hair cut short frames Exzeter's face. She has bright green eyes and thick brows, Her smile is...unusual. It gives off not the impression of happiness, but one of a suppressed, carnivorous urge. The youth in her face and her short stature makes her appear younger than she actually is. She might be considered attractive, if she bathed regularly and her slim, muscular body wasn't covered in scars. She doesn't have much in the way of clothes. In fact, the only outfit she wears ever is a battered brown tunic, pants, and a satchel with an engraved leather strap.
Personality description: Full of exuberance and vigor, Exzeter races through her days. She's always on the move, always pursuing her hobbies with an intense passion. Shards, everything she does is full of passion. When you hear a door slam open, you know she's entered the room. She has an upbeat, carefree attitude. She's flippant, flamboyant and fun-loving to the point of hedonism. She can be very immature at times and her days are unpredictable. Her hobbies range from rock climbing to reading, music to fighting. Though her attitude comes off as light-hearted, at times she can be intensely brooding. She even has a temper, while rare in occurrence, that could even make reds flinch.
Exzeter is very assertive, even aggressive at times. It's not so much that she defies authority, she is the authority. She's hardcore, what most might see as grueling or dangerous, she will love every minute of it. She's always looking for the next challenge and can get more than a little reckless pursuing the next source of excitement. Her adventerous sprit, after all, led her to settle the Southern Continent on her own. She's confident in herself and fears nothing. She'll even get physical if it comes to it. In fact, she'll probably be the one encouraging fights. She's got a lot of ambition, nothing and nobody stands in her way. Though even rules aren't barriers if she wants something. She has this isane amount of determination, willing to take turns to get what she wants. It can even turn into an obsession.
As well as her physical prowess, Exzeter is also pretty nerdy. In fact she prides brain more than brawn. She's incredibly clever and cunning, and due to a ravenous curiosity, she's engrossed in learning about how things work on Pern. She's even compiled a record of her observations from her two turns alone on the Southern Continent. She'll often spout off "fun facts" at times too. Though she can be far more logical than empathetic. Partially due to her life as a hermit, Exzeter doesn't have the best socialization skills. She can be unsympathetic and more than a little insensitive at times. She's enigmatic about her past, often switching the topic of conversation or coming up with blatant lies. Despite her upbeat attitude, she has a deep distrust and cynicism of her fellow human beings. She's weird when it comes to eye contact, either not looking at the speaker or looking at them too intently. Despite being bisexual, she's celibate. It would naturally be hard for someone who couldn't socialize well to end up in a relationship.
One notable characteristic of Exzeter is her eccentricity. She can get far too involved with her own thoughts and come off as strange to her fellow weyrfolk. She's always coming up with crazy ideas and inventions to earn marks or fulfill her own bizarre beliefs.

History: Ughhhh was the only thought that entered her mind as the familiar shapes soared above the horizon. It was inevitable, obviously. She could never have this continent to herself forever.
It had been luck that had gotten her this far. Escaping from the North and a childhood she preferred not to talk about, Exzeter came to the South at age 14. Not that she expected to find anything. It was a reckless decision to take a small boat south. If the Northern continent had been all there was, then she might've died out at sea. But she was far too stubborn to turn back, even with the risk of thread. But luck had prevailed and before long she had landed on the coast of the Southern Continent, before the founding of Xian Weyr. She was again lucky enough to find a cave on the coast, where she ran her own one woman hold. She was well versed in survival skills, and lived for two turns on the Southern Continent, totally cut off from the rest of humanity. She spent her time hunting, gathering, and hiding from thread. She also studied the plant life and animals unique to this continent, recording what she learned on hides and ink she'd brought with her from the North. About a turn into her new life, she successfully killed a leopard but took pity on her cub, taking the little thing in and raising it herself. It was then just the two of them.
Until the riders came. Exzeter had been out in the jungle, ready for another invigorating hunt, when she saw the dragons flying overhead. Change had inevitably come. Pretty soon a boat landed near her cave home. Disliking the sudden influx of people yet at the same time tired of hiding from thread and knowing that the weyr was the safest place from thread, she followed the caravan south. It was good to finally have some protection from the dragons who were flying overhead, even if they represented a life she'd tried to leave behind. She always remained on the outskirts of the crowd, and eventually made her way to Xian Weyr, where she decided to settle down. Knowing full well that some animals weren't allowed in the weyr, she released her pet into the wild.
