And The Stars, And the Earth
Celes Isselmeer stands a good five inches taller than her father, which means a good six inches or so taller than most men in the town and two feet taller than her teacher in the craft, Jarilo. Although Isselmeer had hoped to apprentice Celes to something a little more traditional for a young lady of station and refinement, she made up her mind from a young age that it would be the forge and only the forge for her. To his credit, Isselmeer granted her wish and arranged an apprenticeship under St. Martindale’s smith, Jarilo. The young woman shows promise and works hard; Jarilo thinks she may even want to travel to other towns to refine her natural talent for fine work and engraving.
