+ Sweet, cuddly and playful
+ Excited to see the world
+ Always looking for an adventure

+ She respects magic and loves seeing someone use his/her magic. She will never ask them to do just something for her (make things grow, shape rocks or something), only when needed.
- Impatient, but when she is weaving or crafting with newfound treasures, she seems to forget time till she is finished or someone starts to talk to her.
- doesn’t take life serious and can’t see the dangers.
-/+ when younger she got distracted quickly, seeing many interesting things after another, making her wander and walk away. Now that she is older, she recognizes when she wants to leave, she now prepares and tells others she will be gone for a few days. Tusk has set bounderies to her wandering, allowing her to explore the caves and Canyon, but not to wander the Plains, though it is difficult to resist, she has not disobeyed him in this.

At a young age Zharra started wandering off, much to her mother's/ Dewsoft's distress at times. She never knew what she made her mother go through, because she always returned home. Her mother had to learn to trust her and tried to stop worrying. Dewsoft, would often say that Zharra was true to her grandmother's wandering blood. Though once an active member of the tribe, Birchmist left to wander the plains centuries prior (following the death of her lifemate). Preferring her solitude over the hussle and bussle of Canyon life, Birchmist has not been seen since.
Zharra’s wanderings often take her farther from the Canyon than she’s supposed to go. On one of her trips, she came across a small stream which contained the most colorful stones she had ever seen; she wanted those stones in her cave. When she picked them up, they immediately dried in the sun, making the colors fade. Zharra was disappointed, how could she keep the colors, without them being underwater. The answer was unexpected, but simple.
She had packed to stay away for a few days and it could get dark in the canyon, so she had brought an oil lantern and a jar filled with oil. Unfortunately she tripped over a large boulder and the jar smashed on the rocks. She felt stupid, now she lost all of her oil!
But the next day she saw that the rocks, over which the oil had spilled, were still wet and shiny. The colors were just as vibrant as they had been underwater. She took a few stones home and every now and then she coats them with a new layer of oil.
Zharra is a very friendly and social personality, but not one that needs the limelight. Zharra is just as comfortable daydreaming on her own and in fact enjoys exploring the outlying edges of the canyon beyond Sunspear.
At the moment she lives with Bryn, she is a distant cousin and they respect each other's wishes. Most importantly, for Zharra, she doesn't mind if and when she just leaves to go wander through the canyon.
She loves her mother, but Zharra's desire to wander for days made Dewsoft worry too much and she didn't want her to worry. She often visits Dewsoft and when possible she will stay with her for a few days. Zharra has much respect for her magic and often brings back seeds for her to let them grow.
She adores Ahket' shyness, but also wants to help him to be himself and not just worry about pleasing others. Recently she danced with Ahket. At first she was a little reluctant, because of his age, but what started as just a play, flirting and fooling around, ended in a gentle joining of bodies.
Sadly, she now feels as if Ahket might have regrets about their dance, but she has not yet had a chance to speak to him about it.
There is only one elf she doesn't really like.... Sikeen. It is more that his attitude towards her made her decide to avoid him, if possible. She doesn't know the reason behind his aversion against JackWolfriders, only knows it has something to do with the deaths of two of his relatives. Some day she will go up to him and ask him.... It is not that she fears him, for now she feels it is best not to ask him.
Zharra has much respect for hunters, but soon learned she wasn't very good at archery or swordfighting. But she made an effort to learn. One day she was bold enough to ask Fangsong to teach her how to be better, never had she expected that she would indeed become her mentor. She still fears she will never be good enough and that Fangsong will give up teaching her.[/font]
(More to be added as I learn more about the Holt)
Animal: Jackwolf (Deceased)
Age: died at the age of 10
Note: Thumblechaser got his name for his love to chase Thumbleweed after he just left the nest. Zharra was heartbroken when he was killed in a rockslide, but she was able to say goodbye, recieve one last lick and have him die in her arms.
Age: 9 months, not sure when a wolf is fully-grown, but she still acting like a pup.
Note: After Thumbleweed died Zharra had avoided the litters, because she didn't want to bond with anotherJackwolf. But one day she joined others to see the pups. To her suprise a pup with a grin on her face walked up to her and she instantly fell in love!
Mischief gets her name from her favorite pastime which is 'catch me if you can' where she nabs someone's belonging, makes the owner chase her through the canyon homes to get it back.
