Name Pronounced: El-en-EH-rin
Appearance: Ellie is just under 5 feet 4 inches tall with brown wavy hair and grey eyes. She's wide hipped and quite large breasted with a squarish jawline and high forehead, sometimes with a bit of a fringe. She wears blue frequently but sometimes wears brighter colours if she's feeling low, to cheer herself up. She frowns a lot, especially if she's thinking, so has frown lines between her eyebrows and a few slight wrinkles on her forehead. She looks closer to twenty five than twenty one. She was a bit chubby when younger but not unfit, yet it turned rapidly into muscle once she had Vinsnath to care for, although she'll always keep some softness due to the very feminine nature of her body shape.
Personality: Ellie spent a lot of time by herself before she was Searched. She was often lazy but also sometimes she'll be quick-tempered or full of energy. She gets hormonal fairly often and will occasionally think someone's getting at her when they might not be, or react with tears. She deals well with constructive criticism but less well to being told off. She'll usually sulk for a few hours but can be cheered out of the mood. Ellie felt that Impression to Vinsnath would get her to be more motivated and would mature her very quickly. Not normally the sort to mope, she found being apart from her friends much harder than she anticipated.
History: Father: Herin
Information about Elenerin's pets
Pet Name: Kedeva
Pet Type: Green firelizard
Appearance: Kedeva is a tiny green, of a similar shade of sea green to her pet's dragon. Her wings seem large considering her tiny body but they suit her well and give her a degree of elegance. On her muzzle is a darker green splotch and the tip of her tail is a muddy greenish brown colour, which makes it look like she's dipped it into a marsh.
Personality: Kedeva is equally attached to her bonded and to Vinsnath, and is rarely away from either of them, except when asked to take messages. Clingy would be the best word to describe her, although this may change as she matures. Not easily frightened, she'd still rather avoid other people unless her pet is completely at ease with them. Any flits who are difficult to please will be avoided at all costs - Kedeva likes her hide the way it is, thank you.
Second Pet Name: Siri
Pet Type: Gold Firelizard
Appearance: One is tempted to look for the broken ring that let this precious pendant fall off some goldrider's necklace. While Siri's egg was normal sized, she hatched out very small.
Personality: Siri knew from the moment that she cracked shell that she is a gold. Her way of gaining the proper respectful attention she deserves as such, though, isn't the usual haughty coldness or strident commands. No, Siri will rule because - well - that's just the way things are, the way she expects them to be. Sure as the sun gives light in the day.
Information about Elenerin's dragon
Dragon Name: Vinsnath
Age: 7 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: Hatched 220.127.116.11. Tiny describes this green perfectly. She's petite and she never grew to be more than twenty feet, ending 5 inches shy of that mark. Vinsnath is a very pretty medium sea green, her body is one long solid color and in a Weyr full of dragons sporting many varying shades on a single hide she's striking to look at and to watch her move. She had a dainty wobbly walk as a hatchling and like all dragons she's kept the wobble to some degree but she's just fun to look at because she's so petite. Vinsnath has a thin muzzle to fit her frame, but she has amazingly long fangs. They don't get in her way though. They fit perfectly in her mouth and she was one of the few hatchlings that instinctively knew it was best to chew her food.
Personality: This pretty little dragon's personality is laid back and non-aggressive for the most part. However if you hurt her she won't hesitate to hurt you in return. She gets offended very easily and can hold onto a grudge for a long time, at least long for her. She won't forget the next day, but by the day after that she won't remember she's mad at you and you can be friends all over again.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Agile and swift to respond to changes in air pressure, Vinsnath excels at darting hither and thither to sear stray Threads. This, unsurprisingly, is offset by the fact that she has very little stamina, and when she becomes tired the onset of fatigue is immediate rather than gradual. As she flies Threadfall more frequently she will get to the stage where she has to retire halfway through the Fall but is able to return towards the end to continue to fight.
