Character type: Dragonrider
Personality: Hanton was one of those boys that never fit in with the other boys. He always got on better with the girls. As such he formed a bond with one girl in particular at a very young age. Jessara became the light in his day and when he was forced to endure the 'boy' activities and put up with the taunting and emotional abuse from them he always found solace in Jessara's company. Yes, Hanton was a very sensitive person and that's one part of his personality that's never changed, he's still sensitive. As an adult he's learned to deal with the more 'adult' form of teasing, jokes and the like in a mature manner, lucky for him.
History: Born and raised at High Reaches, Hanton's parents were both riders and he saw them mostly during Gathers- Turns End, Summer. In between those times he was strictly a Creche Weyrbrat and raised with all the other brats. When he attached himself to Jessara it was very easy for him to wheedle his way into spending nights with her family. When Jessara was given a flit as a surprise, Hanton was there and unfortunately the little brown that hatched for Jessara's father decided that Hanton was the better of the two and even though he hadn't a speck of food to entice the flit the tiny brown wouldn't budge. Finding himself the owner of a small brown flit Hanton dubbed him Naran. When Dearheart- Jessara's green flit rose for the first time- Naran gave chase and caught her. Unfortunately it was a Gather night and Hanton was quite into his cups having been brushing off a recent failure to Impress. He flightlusted Jessara and didn't remember a thing the next morning. All he knew was he woke up naked on his cot and hoped he hadn't been in too much trouble. After the Gather Jessara started to avoid him and the rumor had it she was interested in another boy and he cramped her style. Hanton refused to believe it, but never quite got up enough courage to ask her if it were true and then suddenly she was gone. Her father died and her mother took her and left the Weyr.
Information about Hanton's pets
Pet Name: Naran
Pet Type: Flit
Appearance: Brown, little and chocolately colored. He has lighter colored wings when unfurled but tight against his sides they blend right in.
Personality: Quiet, in fact you hardly knows he exists. The only time he's really noisy is when he's chasing the green and gold flits. Other than that he might as well not be around, you hear so little from him.
Information about Hanton's dragon
Dragon Name: Alteceth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: He's a light colored bronze, and not all that shiny. He is definitely metallic, but he doesn't seem to shine as much as he should, no one quite knows why. Small, Alteceth is the size of very large brown. Some might say he's a 'cute' bronze and they'd be right. He has a small head that make his eyes seem larger in a Hatchling sort of way.
Personality: Picky, picky, picky. He has taken his riders perfectionism and made it his own. He's picky about his wallow, about the company he keeps and at times he can even be picky about his rider. He's not bossy in his picking, no, it might be better if he were. Alteceth is simply annoying when he gets picky. You try to appease him just to stop that incessant picking.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Small and fast! Unsurprisingly he tires a little sooner than the bigger bronzes, but he's has yet to drop out of a fall early.
