Do you know anything about your extended family and your relationship with them? Keahi’s aunt on her mother’s side, Ahira, is a dancer who sometimes visited when Keahi was small, but though Keahi really liked her, her parents didn’t approve. Her grandparents on her mother’s side died before she was born, her grandfather and her father’s siblings are all local to the area, so she doesn’t plenty of time with them but wasn’t particularly close to any.

Significant Past Events

Infancy: Keahi was nurtured, but at the same time, her parents were overly strict. They were afraid of raising a child with the sign of fox, and wanted to keep her from getting into trouble. They were also unnerved by her precociousness and early mischievousness.
Childhood: Her parents try their best to love their daughter while also keeping her in line. They keep her busy working on the cothold, tending her siblings and the animals. They try to keep her away from ‘bad influences’, sure that a boring country life will wear down her restless impulses. But it backfires. Keahi is sullen, and runs away often, farther each time, until she discovered the beaches and sandstones caverns of abandoned Monaco Bay. She discovers a firelizard best when she is ten and Impressess two firelizards. Her parents try to get rid of them, but when they realized it was impossible, they made Keahi sleep in the hayloft and keep the firelizards outside.
Adolescence: Teen years) Though she still has plenty of chores at home, Keahi withdraws further and further from family life. Her mother decides to foster her at the main hold when she is sixteen, hoping that being around other girls her age will be good for her. Keahi did enjoy getting away from home, but didn’t really make friends among the girls. But she did strike up a friendship, and then a romance with the heir of the Holld, a boy a little bit older called Maligan. The older boy pressures her into a sexual relationship, but loses interest after their first encounter. Unfortunately, Keahi finds herself pregnant.
When she tells Maligan, he freaks out, and then tells his parents that Keahi has been fooling around with all the boys in the home. They send her home, much to her parents shame.
Adulthood: Once back at home, her parents are disappointed. They confine her to the hayloft while they decide what to do with her. In their minds, she has finally lived up to their worst fears, and with no marriage prospects, they have no idea what to do with, even not knowing that she is pregnant. Keahi knows they will never forgive her or believe her story, so after a week or so, when they have relaxed their watch, she runs away again. She planned to live at Monaco Bay until the baby was born and then give it up to a Starhold.
Coming of Age: But her plans were changed when, taking shelter from the rain in a cavern she didn’t normally use, she found a huge copper egg in a bowl of still hot sand. As she stood, staring incredulously, it began to crack. Using her firelizards to catch fish for the newborn, whatever it was, as she had never seen a dragon egg, obviously. When it hatched, the copper dragon wasted no time claiming Keahi as her own and proclaiming herself Makedath, Queen of the rebuilt Weyrs. Three days later, Keahi wakes in horrible pain. She miscarries her baby, which is a both a relief and a deep regret.
