Alira is an observer of nature and considered to be one of the most analytical members of the Tawkami clan. When at her Hometree, she is inseparable from her best friend and confidant, Tsyal. The two could not have more opposing temperaments, but their bond is not easily broken. When in need of solitude, Alira disappears into the jungle to center herself, sometimes for weeks at a time. Being alone in the jungle for that long does have its costs, however, as many of her peers view her to be eccentric and odd, though they still respect her for her expertise.
