All About Ernest
Name: Ernest (just Ernest, thank you very much)
Weight: 100 lb
Hair: short, boy-cut, black
Ernest is a village girl with a bit of a hard life, but she's looking for ways to make her life better. She has a map from her uncle of an island he claimed and has given to her, and she's heading out into the world to find it, but she's not very good at this whole "adventuring" shenanigan. Ernest's life revolves around taking care of herself - that is her first and foremost priority. She doesn't like harming others, and will avoid it if at all possible, but if she has to, she will.
Ernest grew up in a small town, and learned right off that if you want anything in this world, you have to fight for it. She used to dream of a place where no one had to starve or hurt. Nowadays, she knows that is impossible, but she still dreams of it sometimes. She had a hardscrabble life, and that has made her a hard person, in stark contrast to her early dreams.
Ernest attracts "cursed items" - magical items she doesn't know how to use, but no one will buy, because they are believed to be cursed. She carries a few of them around, hoping someone will buy them, but she doesn't realize that they are powerful, and even if she did, she wouldn't know how or when to use them. While having some magical power herself, she is unable to recognize it in things or other people.
Ernest is a willful lone wolf - she doesn't listen to people very well, and, when she works with people, there is usually a reason behind it. She rarely gets lonely, and prefers the company of the wilderness to people. Her only common companion is a purple record orb that she found in Feeorin Forest, which she uses to store information - when it will listen to her, that is.
Ernest has many sides. Depending on when you meet her, and how you act, she can be a very different person. She commonly displays one of the traits here:
Shy. If you don't talk to her, you just see her, this is how she will appear. She looks timid, and insignificant, but don't let that fool you…
Defensive. This is Ernest's most common side when meeting people. She often seems angry, or like she's hiding something. She seems cold and unsympathetic toward most people.
Friendly. If you manage to convince her that she does not need to fear you or hide from you, Ernest can actually be a nice person. Because she's had a hard life at times, she is a sympathetic person if you can make her like you, and she can be very cheerful and fun if you catch her at the right moment.
Friendship. Ernest considers very few people her friends. She does not stay in one place long enough to form friendships, usually, and she has a rather strong distrust of people. But for those she considers her friends, she will go to the ends of the earth.
Dangerous. A very rarely-seen side of Ernest, if forced to it, Ernest can be very dangerous. When angered, she will decide what you deserve and execute her plan, with little mercy. If she believes you deserve what you get, it can be hard to dissuade her from her plans.
