Name Pronounced: bee lan (b er lan)
Appearance: B'lan looks a lot like his papa Rolan which is why Berti could so easily prove he was Rolan's. His hair is black in color, shorter, and since meeting his papa he has started having Rolan braid it like Rolan does his own meaning it is braided flat against his skull in about ten or maybe fifteen braids, that end around the middle of his neck, depending on how small Rolan wants to make them and how still B'lan is wanting to sit still. His eyes are a darker blue in color perfectly matching Rolan's in truth. Unlike Rolan though his skin doesn't have very much of a tan, it does have a bit of a natural one, but not very dark.
Personality: Due to his weaker physical nature B'lan has just naturally become a bit more of a loner, or maybe an outcast depending on who you talk to. He is shy due to being made fun of my the other kids for his in ability to play as most children can and do. He prefers spending time with the crèche workers or if he can find them other quite children. He has also developed a rather strong will or self motivation, it is how he got to where he is: able to be a candidate.
History: Father: Rolan
Information about B'lan (Berlan)'s pets
Pet Name: Paint
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Egg - The Monochrome Patchwork egg: Come quick! Someone has spilled a pot of black ink all over Aoede’s egg! Oh, no. My mistake. That’s just the pattern on the surface of the egg - a pure white egg with splotches of black scattered at random across its surface. An utterly unremarkable egg...at first glance, but if you stare at it for a long time, the patterns will seem to wiggle and shift. Blink or look away and you’ll return to looking at the same old black and white egg. Just a trick of the light, or was it something else? The egg stares back innocently - no answers to be found in its stark simplicity.
Personality: Some flits might prefer to spend their idle hours napping on a sun-warmed rock, but this boy will not be one of them. Curious and energetic, this little blue will constantly be on the look out for a new game to play or a new friend to make. He won’t always mind his pet when told what to do and he won’t always know not to poke his nose somewhere it doesn’t belong. As a result, he’ll be getting into more than his fair share of trouble - trouble that he might not be able to get himself out of without considerable outside intervention. Still Even if he doesn't listen and does like adventure he does love him pet deeply and will never leave his pet when Berlan needs him. If it came to it in truth he would defend his human to his last and go between before he would willingly let anything hurt his little pet.
Information about B'lan (Berlan)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Erinyeth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Night Glory
Appearance: Egg - The Winged Vengeance egg: It is blacker than night, but has a hint of (in earth terms) bat wings on it. When standing in front, you can imagine the wings unfurling and the Winged Vengeance coming to punish you for your sins.
Personality: Erinyeth is a dragon to make you fear dragons. She has no room in her life for liars, cheaters, or those who would kill, well, anything. She lives a life in the shadows committed to keeping others on the outside of them and her chosen better be one of them or things will not turn out well for him wit the least of his issues being her chastising him until he fixes it. While she may never bring her full fury upon her own rider he will know it in her silences and sharp tone that clearly says he has made a grave mistake.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: This is one green who is going to have issues making friends sadly. She can't know the heart of others easily and that is what she wants before she will call you friend, but she won't mind comrades. She does not have the muscles to give her much endurance giving her just enough ability to last her part of a fall, but not much extra meaning in bad conditions she will have to rest early and making take back over for her replacement at the end. She does have some speed, not exactly a lot considering one would think lake of muscles would mean she could speed, but no her speciality is power and perfection. Her turns are perfectly executed on wingtip or better; she can use her sleek form to her advantage and dive quickly gaining lots of speed; most of all though is her flame control, she is very good at controlling her flame knowing just how much she needs to do what she needs.
