Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Ayythshen is very attractive. He is of medium height and build, about five feet, eleven inches tall and one hundred sixty pounds. He is muscular, but not overly bulky. He has very little body hair, and his hair is dark blond, almost brown, though the sun at Igen often bleaches highlights into it. He is almost always smiling, and his smile is one of the most charming things about him because his teeth are near-perfectly straight. His eyes are a silvery greyish color - very close to blue, but not quite. They have a look about them such that one might not be surprised should they reflect light in the dark.
Personality: Ayythshen is a by no means a selfless person, though he has a very strong sense of duty. He feels that every person should give or received what they owe or deserve. He is very disdainful of any who would leech off of others without paying back what they take. He will gladly work for anyone who will pay him what he deserves, and he feels it his duty to do so. He is extremely devoted to a meritocratic system of government and ranking - in effect, he believes that those who are best at their job should be the ones dictating how others do that job. For this reason, he is very attached to the Crafters' system of ranking and skeptical of the ranking system of the Weyr, and even sometimes the Hold.
