Name Pronounced: ahd-HUSK-ren
Appearance: Is this a child or a bronzerider? Well, technically neither since Adhuskren is fourteen and Standing to be said bronzerider. Adhuskren is 5’7” with a well-built body thanks to both genetics and personal effort to achieve and maintain a good body. His physiology comes thanks in part to his parents being from the Second Pass. He’s got fiery red hair and cerulean blue eyes that are intense and emotional, making it difficult for Adhuskren to keep his emotional state private. Thankfully he’s rarely angry, but it doesn’t do well for his poker face.
Personality: Calm and dignified, one might assume that Adhusken is a young Lord Holder heir at first sight but he isn’t. He believes in diplomacy and tact over charging into situations that could be harmed by brute or blunt force. He loves harper stories about grand heroes and subtle victories, especially stories where one choice completely changed the outcome of a situation. Of course he realizes that such things happen rarely (otherwise might there be more ancient Weyrfolk around Pern?), but he still feels like he’d like to be ready should such a situation occur to him. He dislikes being wrong, finding it a personal failing. His ideal is to be able to accept his failings gracefully and learn from them, but he is young still and sometimes finds trouble with that.
History: Born 6.16 to a Second Pass SEF Weyrfolk and a bronzerider from the same time, Adhuskren was young yet when he came forward with his father while leaving his mother behind. The knowledge that he’d never see her again stung for years, but he was aided in his grief by the novelty of this new Weyr that was in the future yet far more rustic than his own had been. He devoured hides (where were the books?!) on the past/his future to learn what had happened and was rather alarmed about how many plagues there had been. One even had been bad enough to encourage the song “Moreta’s Ride” out of it, which spoke to Adhuskren about the state of dragons and man alike. Were these things so fragile as to be susceptible to plague like that?
