Ta-weret is kind of short even for a halfling and has gone somewhat plumb during the years. But make no mistake, underneath that she is still fit and capable of enduring long trecks in the wilderness. She has tanned, olive skin (think Mediterranian), green eyes and dark brown hair. She likes to have her hair in a mix of small braids and unbraided hair, held in high ponytail. When unbound, her hair would reach around her shoulderblades.
Ta-weret dresses in earthy colors: browns, greens, yellows, though she likes to adapt to her surroundings in her color choices, so if she's heading to a glacier, blues, greys and whites would come into the picture. She is not a fighter in her heart, but has learned that armor is useful to have, and even more useful to wear so that other's won't notice you're wearing it, so she tends to use light armor and keep it under her clothes. It does help that as druid she isn't wearing any metal. The clothes are a mix of styles gathered from all over the world, but still in a good shape. Usual combination is a long skirt, split for a bit so that it allows running, a long-sleeved shirt and a leather vest on top of it, all of them having small pockets all around to keep stuff like sling bullets in. And a sturdy cloak to keep warmth in and water out when the weather gets rougher.
She fights mostly with a sling, and prefers to fight from a range, but she does have a scimitar on her hip just in case there will be need to close in. She prefers to travel lightly, and has Hariti carry all of the heavier camping equipment anyway, keeping on her person just the stuff she might need in a hurry.
Ta-weret was born to a couple of halfling archeologists in Osirion. Her parents left to her mostly to her devices for as long as she can remember, not out of any kind of malice, but just because they were somewhat workaholic. They spend their time combing the insides of the musty pyramids and other ruins of ancient Osirion. This led to Ta-weret growing up as a very independent person. She wasn't interested in the ruins to the extent her parents were, but took to exploring the lands around them, mostly desert but also riverbanks and more mountaineous regions. The rivers always interested her the most, as they were so full of life and she could spend hours just watching the animals doing whatever animals do.
So her childhood was not a typical one, but she was happy, and still loved her parents, who showed their affection whenever they remembered to do it, and always made sure she came to sleep at the camp at night. One day around sunset when she was just starting to go back to camp from the banks of Junira River in western Osirion, bunch of slavers found her, however. A lone halfling child seemed like an easy prey, and they caught her quite easily in a net. But then a hippo rose from the river heading for their nightly grazing spot and scaring the living daylights out of the slavers, who dropped the child and fled, not having prepared to handle the potentially deadly animal. Ta-weret lay there, unable to escape quickly enough from the net, which propably saved here life, as the hippo just continued on and started eating. Catching her breath, Ta-weret managed to shake the net off and move further away. After that day, she found hippoes especially fascinating, taking her escape as a some kind of sign.
When she was grown-up enough to leave, she left very practical goodbyes to her parents, packed her backpack full of food and started walking northward, having felt a weird kind of pull to go that way for a while, perhaps after hearing stories of places other than desert and river from the other archeologists who occasionally shared a camp with her family. Shortly afterwards she noticed that one of the hippoes in the river, clearly a young one based on its size, seemed to be following her. This continued for some days, the animal always doing its night grazing almost next to where ever Ta-weret set her camp, until a kind of silent mutual agreement was arrived to between the halfling and the animal and signed with a shared meal.
From that day on, Ta-weret has travelled the with the hippo, naming her Hariti. They have traveled all over the Inner Sea region and even beyond, going to where ever Ta-weret hadn't been to before. She has found out that she enjoys sharing their meals with fellow travelers, trading stories and recipies. Ta-weret isn't young any more, and might have gained a bit of fat from all those hearty meals, but she is still as fit and eager to explore unknown places as she was when she first left her parents.
Ta-weret joined the Pathfinder Society when one day she came across a battle between some Pathfinders and a herd of Aurochs and managed to convince the leaders of both sides the others were not an actual threat. Impressed by this and sharing a campfire later on, the Pathfinders asked her if she would like to join their organisation, which offer she happily accepted after hearing that the job would mostly involve what she had been doing before: traveling around and exploring exotic and interesting places.
