Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: A tall, lithe woman whose long limbs allow her to move with the sensual feminine grace befitting a Greenrider. Wavy dark locks of auburn hue are cropped to mid-neck/chin, accented with fiery highlights that give it a coppery appearance in the daylight. She has proportionately large olive-colored eyes, a subtle exotic tilt matched beautifully with fine features. Strong, but not overly-muscular; she maintains a shapely figure, but wears loose fitting clothing that conceals the roundness of breast and hip and allows for a wider range of movement. Typical Igen garb.
Personality: A shy, and often quiet girl who frequently seems distant or disconnected emotionally; unusual traits for a greenrider. She seems to prefer the company of her dragon above all others, and rarely speaks to others unless a situation requires it. Adrena only expresses herself comfortably around those she holds close, and only then will her true personality be revealed. With friends, she is animated and full of life, exuberent and vibrant, even playful at times. She can be the kindest and gentlest person, with a wit and humor found appealing to most. Serious when needed; because of her disconnected approach, she can remain clam and collected under pressure and during a crisis.
History: Born to proud parents of a Runnerhold located in the plains of Keroon, Adrena developed a love for runners and an oddly deep connection with the animals she was surrounded by. Her father was quick to notice how quickly she bonded with the creatures, and trained her in caring for the runners she was sensitive towards. She lived a good childhood, raised by kind and loving parents who encouraged her and supported her, and taught manners as well as a healthy respect for dragonkind. When she turned 15, she was selected by a dragon on Search, and her parents were extremely proud and willing to allow their enthusiastic daughter to leave for weyrlife.
Information about Adrena (Deceased)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Elanth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: A beautiful emerald dragon, her hide the color of jade is an exquisite combination of darker and lighter hues resulting in a shimmering green. Elongated appendages and sleek, streamline build give her a grace and agility needed at every Fall. She is larger than most green dragons, rivaling the size of small blues. Large, expressive eyes are normally caring and kind, but are quick to turn violent or threatening. She carries a trailing, zigzaging scar that traces her lower spine from a threadscoring long past.
Personality: Flirtatious and playful are the best words for describing her. Seemingly laid-back and care-free, she is friendly towards most dragons, riders, and non-riders alike with an affinity for children. A fiery temper is occasionally displayed towards a dragon whom she sees as a rival or a rider her weyrmate feels strongly against. Extremely protective, she doesn't enjoy when Adrena rides other dragons or other creatures, for that matter. However, she does not mind carrying passengers or helping to relay packages when situations require it.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: She has been found to have the same empathic abilities her rider has, often helping to settle a dragon or rider during the healing process and aiding the queens in such. Elanth does NOT like her scar touched, but permits it tended to or occasionally caressed by her rider only. If her rider is put in danger, Elanth has a tendancy to panic on rare occasions, but usually remains calm and collected.
