Silvia Tolbert

Full Name: Silvia Tolbert
Nicknames: Silv
Gender: Female
Age: 59 (arrived on Pern when she was 51)
Occupation: Governor
Origin: California, USA, Earth
Played By: Angela Bassett

Height: 5’5”
Appearance: Neither a particularly tall nor short woman, there’s nothing that immediately stands out about Silvia—but upon closer look, there is a striking brightness to her dark eyes that speaks of wisdom and experience. She has brown skin, and naturally curly black hair that is medium length. She has an attractive face, with pronounced cheekbones and full lips. Her build is overall average.

Personality:
  • intelligent and hardworking, was a natural choice for leader after Emily Boll's death
  • composed, determined, and decisive--good at making decisions under pressure, or taking action when she needs to
  • however, can be stubborn and a bit insecure; doesn't like to admit it when she's made a mistake, though that's a skill she's increasingly had to learn over her life
  • has a good heart and genuinely cares about the colony; to an extent she does like to be in charge, since she can make sure everything is done correctly, but she never imagined she'd become Governor and be responsible for everyone
  • that thought stresses her more than she cares to admit: tends to feel like she must act strong and composed, especially in front of others; however, those she trusts sees she has a softer heart than is initially obvious
  • she has a nice smile, if a little impersonal at times; a little wary of other people's intentions
  • a good sense of humour, laughs often
  • a bit of an adventurous and bold streak; though she did not pursue science, she still has a natural curiosity that drives her to investigate--she can be a little too nosy
Background:
  • Born on Earth to a family that cared for her well
  • her grandparents owned a ranch she liked to visit as a child, and she developed a life-long love of horses and animals
  • went to university initially with the hope of getting into veterinary science; however, she later decided she didn't want to work in medicine, and instead found she preferred economics
  • after graduating, worked in department of statistics and economics for many years; she found work on First Centauri, among Emily Boll's staff
  • during the Nathi War, she played an important role in coordinating resources in the war effort and formed a good working relationship with the governor Emily Boll; however, the war also cost her greatly in her personal life--many of her family members died in the war, and it shook her more deeply than she tends to show
  • when the expedition to Pern was announced, Silvia chose to go along with Emily Boll and try to start a new life somewhere else
  • she worked in Landing as administrative staff under Emily Boll until the First Fall
  • the new wave of tragedy has stunned and shaken her once more--especially since she thought she was free of the war
  • however: she will not back down, and intends to carry on her former colleague's work as best as she can
