Basic Information

Marvena was the widely respected Weyrwoman of Ista Weyr after the previous weyrwoman, Agali, passed away, until the First Fall disaster.

No one could ever accuse Marvena of being a soft woman, she was a firm leader, strong willed, proud, stubborn and determined. She knew every detail about running her Weyr, about the running of the lower caverns, the candidates, the crafters, she had all of it completely under control. The problem was that she very rarely delegated, and when she did, it would only be little things that anyone could do. It wasn't that she didn't trust her second Sirasri, she did, she just liked to know what was happening personally.

She had little patience for mentoring the male candidates, and rather took a more involved roll with the female ones, always looking for worthy ones to nurture and encourage into standing for Gold eggs, should Queth and then Tameketh produce them.

Unlike her successor, she rarely had time for those who didn't ride bronze or brown. All the Istan bronzeriders and brownriders knew the Weyrwoman, she enjoyed their company and often encouraged their competitiveness for her attentions and affections. It was a perk of being a Goldrider she thoroughly enjoyed.

She was however a highly intelligent woman, organised and clever, and her practicality and forward thinking and planning were trademarks of her time leading the Weyr.
