Dark brown chin-length waves tousle wildly about this young woman's face, streaks of deep red-gold showing where Rukbat's light has left its mark. Her skin is the hue of caramel with too much cream, a pair of freckles accenting the almond shape of her dark green eyes and graceful brows. Her nose is round, in contrast to the stubborn line of her jaw and wide expressive mouth. She has a swimmer's form, strong limbs, and subtle curves, often accentuated by the suggestion of the swimwear ever present beneath the simple brightly colored sarongs and sari's she often wears with shorts and sandals.


History

[[div]]
Words like "pirate" earn an odd expression from Tanit, despite the fact that her great-great-grandfather and his brother were the ones who made the phrase stick (supposedly). Salzar and his brother Morrell got themselves kicked out of their crafts and supposedly marooned on a lesser island for their … questionable practices.

The story went that they built a boat, rowed themselves to a proper hold where they won the right to build a cothold (and supposedly their wives) in a game of chance. They used what they knew of their former crafts to make a living fishing and diving for pearls and other treasures. Or, at least that was the story her grandfather often told. He also claimed that it was because of his great grandfather's tendency to take in those of disrepute that their island was named Black Moon Bay, and not for the volcanic black sand beach on the windward side of the island.

Such were the tall tales that Tanit grew up with, surrounded by dozens of cousins in the small cothold that looked to Little Sandy Hold for protection. A place of the sea, of stories, of obscenely large families, and of life. Unique in her lot as an only child, Tanit had never really journeyed outside of the reef that ringed the island and spent her time learning to dive for the treasures that littered the ocean floor with her parents. Like most of the kids who grew up on that island, Tanit was given the opportunity to travel once she came of age, a tradition that was necessary and often resulted in people returning with families of their own, or established within their own craft or weyr. With her cousin T'san's letter in hand, Tanit decided it was time to embark on her own adventure.
