Name Pronounced: GOH-sin
Appearance: Gossin is pretty enough in her own way but the permanent scowl on her face makes her seem ugly. Her skin is pale to the point where it burned painfully when she first came south and continued to do so for months until she found the right cooling ointment. Her hair is a strangely dull blonde, lightly coloured but without any sheen or shine and her eyes are a pale green/blue. Her eyebrows are heavily angled, pointing sharply down towards her face making her look angry even when she isn't. Her cheekbones are high and proud, her jawline strong and her cheeks thin; a face that many women would kill for but it's beauty is lost in the condescending way she looks at everyone.
Personality: Gossin is not a nice woman, she's a rebel without a cause, has no respect for authority, and seems to enjoy getting into trouble, but then considering her entire family died from the plague you can forgive much of her behaviour. Gossin was a shy girl with a general lack of trust but when her family were wiped out she blamed the entire world and everyone in it. The mind healers did what they could but her resentment would never go away. She'll often be cruel for the sake of it, getting a grim satisfaction out of watching other people suffer.
History: Gossin was born on 22.214.171.124 to mother Sinia and father Gorin, both healers at Fort Hold. Gossin was the first child born of six in total and was raised with many of her cousins. Both her parents came from large families so Gossin was never really without someone, one of her aunts was even the nanny to many of the Hold's children. She was a shy child who lacked trust in people, even her extended family. There was no real reason for it she just seemed to take her time to warm up to people.
Information about Gossin's dragon
Dragon Name: Menarth
Wing (Weyrling Group): FeastCrashers
Appearance: Menarth is a well proportioned, strong blue who always holds himself with grace and dignity- he never slouches or even lounges about. His hide is a light, icy blue that almost, but not quite fades into white along his ridges and face, though his hide around his eyes is a darker hue, almost giving him a skeletal appearance.
Personality: He is a headstrong dragon, rash and fierce, but compelling as well- he will be adept at rallying others behind him. Despite this, he will have few close friends, instead he will look at other dragons and their people as pieces to be used. Everyone, save his rider and a rare few, are expendable. He is brave and loyal to his Weyr, but while he always strives to get the job done, and is rather brilliant when it comes to tactics, his methods tend to be a cold, tactical and brutal when necessary. He will be a brilliant fighter when it comes to threadfall, just don't expect him to help a wingmate if he believes that his wing would be better served without them.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Unknown
