Physical Description: Deeply blue-black skin, full lips, black eyes, and chin-length black hair. 5'9, willowy and thin (some claim too thin). Many scars.
Personality: Quiet and quick. No one upon first meeting her expects this thoughtful woman to be so witty and fun-loving. She does, however, struggle to open up emotionally. Those close to her claim she uses her quiet humor as a mask.
History: Malaika Zanara (or Lady Zanara) of the Tyrosian Court is seen by many as somewhat of a contradiction. Though adept, elegant, and influential in court, Zanara differs from other gentlewomen in that she is also the king's Keeper of Dragons, and isn't afraid to get her hands dirty. Zanara has always been able to connect with the king's dragons on a profound level. Few know why, including Zanara herself.
