♣Appearance ❝Weel is that weel does.❞
[Handsome is that handsome does.]
Ealusaid has rather wild, curly, red hair and dark green eyes. Due to her small population, she's rather petite, barely reaching 5 ft. 2 in. high. She's rather flat chested and wider in the hips. She has fair skin with faint freckles about the nose and cheeks, and narrow pink lips, but a bright smile. Her hair, which often proves rather difficult to tame, has two wild cowlicks at the top and a small, almost unnoticeable curl on the right side of her cheek. This curl represents the huge potential for wildlife and the strength of Highlandic men in the past, and she keeps it tucked behind her ear, hidden unless she is flustered or upset.
❝Our ain reek's better than ither folk's fire.❞
[Dry bread at home is better than roast meat abroad.]
Ellie has many positive traits; she is welcoming and homey, though rather awkward at first meetings. The etiquette regarding interpersonal exchanges changes too often and too quickly for someone like her. She loves children, especially babies and very little ones. Ealusaid is a simple young woman with a heart of gold, but she has her faults, too. She is very honest, but sometimes her blatant honesty can result in conflict or tension. Nevertheless, being the stubborn person she is, she will not take back a statement she has made which she believes wholeheartedly to be true. This can make her seem rude at times, though she doesn't mean to be.
Her stubborn personality combined with her blunt refusal to change can make her hard to work with, or difficult to understand.
She is tenderhearted and generally softspoken, but, when she feels her opinion is important and righteous she will speak it loudly and won't back down, regardless of the odds. She is very old-fashioned, both in tradition and in habit. Young in appearance and at heart, but she truly is very old, and old habits die hard, if at all. She is largely unchanged since approximately the 1400's, and dresses in the same fashion as she did then.
Ealusaid is hugely fond of music, especially ancient varieties (often involving bagpipes and old drums). Music is often said to be a universal language, and the music of the Highlands is very clearly preserved since medieval or perhaps even ancient times.
Since her population is so small and she is generally very isolated from the rest of the world, she tends to be very cuddly; but only with people she likes or trusts. With everyone else she tends to be very reluctant to interact at all, though she still tries her best to be welcoming and warm. And even with her tendency to prefer closeness to a choice few people, such behavior is reserved for private or family events. Physical contact, she believes, is special, and should be kept private.
Though heavily Catholic and firm in her faith, Ealusaid is still prone to ancient druidistic habits, some of which she has become unaware of. Old superstitions, for instance, play a big part in her judgement on small issues.
Her accent is very heavy, often making her difficult to understand even among family. She quickly adapts to the speaking patterns of those around her, however, so this is rarely a problem. But no matter how long she spends with others, once back home, her native accent and dialect sets back in.
