She's kind and welcoming to those whom she feels she can get along with but can be cold and hostile to people who are rude and have no respect for anyone but themselves. She's loyal to those whom are lucky enough to be able to call her their friend and won't tolerate bullying. Can become resentful and rebellious towards adults if she feels like she's being pushed around. Tal likes her own personal space but also enjoys being around people who share her interests.

Appearance>> Talira has a slim build, long brown hair, brown eyes, stands just over 5.5 feet tall and weighs 58kgs. Doesn't follow any clothing trends, is happy as long as what she's wearing is comfortable and doesn't really care about what other people think of her fashion sense. In winter, she prefers to wear warm tracksuits and in summer, she's often seen in a pair of knee-length shorts and a colourful T-shirt.
Tal never goes outside without a hat on. Depending on the weather and the type of outdoor activity she's doing, there's always either a beanie, sun hat, baseball cap or riding helmet perched firmly on her head.
Markings>> Diamond-shaped birthmark on her left shoulder
Medical History>> Severe allergy to bee stings.
Full History>> Talira was born in Denver, Colorado, where she lived happily until she was 8. That was when her parents, Anthony and Samantha, decided to quit their jobs as woodworkers and buy a farm in Kentucky.
At first, Tal wasn't happy about the move because it meant leaving her friends behind, but her mom reassured her that she'd make lots of new friends and, that if she ever needed help with solving a problem, there'd always be someone around to lend assistance.
After settling in to life on the farm, the family purchased two Arabian geldings. Tal started learning to ride and, at the age of 11, began entering junior showjumping competitions where she won a number of second and third place ribbons. Still, her parents felt she needed more improvement in her skills in order to win that elusive first place ribbon, so they decided to enrol her at a riding academy. Blue Ridge seemed like the perfect place. Tal could not only improve her riding skills but, since the academy doubled as a boarding school, she could also improve on other important life skills.
But who really knows what will happen? Tal is currently still learning, exploring and discovering. She feels like there's more to enjoy in this world.
Pet Name>> Pretzel
Species>> Python regius
Breed>> Savannah ball python
Personality>> Pretzel has a gentle disposition and usually won't bite unless handled roughly, though there are occasions when he can be a little protective of his personal space. He likes to climb and, if given the opportunity, will find ways to escape from his tank. Thankfully, if he ever does escape, he never goes very far.
History>> Some friends of Tal's grandparents run a business breeding and selling reptiles. On many occasions, Tal had expressed interest in owning a snake, so they convinced her grandparents to get her a Ball python as a surprise present for her 8th birthday. In Tal's loving care, Pretzel has grown from a tiny hatchling into a beautiful adult python.
