Emerald has dark, long hair which she wears in a long braid. She has vivid green eyes, like her name. She is thin and wiry and prefers to dress like a boy and be in the middle of the action. Emerald is very strong willed, intelligent, and suspicious of authority. She can be hard to teach, but even though she resists being corrected, she recognizes reason and will adopt new ideas she agrees with. She is slow to trust others and very wary of the dragons.
