Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Birthing Day Prepass.-6.4.4
Personality: As a child Knautia was pretty much happy go lucky. She got on well enough with her three sisters and two foster brothers. She even tolerated her mother who liked to 'get after' her. Her father was special to her and its common enough to hear around the hold that Knautia is just like her da. Just like da means she's smart mouthed. She has a tendency to use snappy comebacks to innocent questions. She'll joke around a problem rather than face it and she often gets away with fooling herself things are really okay when they aren't. The last two years have brought a change to Knautia physically and emotionally. She's grown more somber and prone to depression.
History: Knautia lived with her family in a small cothold near Arolos Hold for all of her life up until just recently. With a famine ravaging their land her father's arranged marriage for her to a Northern Cousin fell through. No one wants to take on another mouth to feed, especially a mouth they've never seen. After her father's smart mouth told off her mother- expressing his anger over their life, their oldest, fat daughter being a handicap for the rest of their lives- Knautia decided it was time she did something with her life. Being a fair tailor, having learned the craft at her mother's knee, Knautia decided to say her good byes to find work somewhere and support herself. Without much protest from her family, she left perhaps a little overenthusiastically, Knautia headed towards the Main Hold. At the Main Hold she was told no tailors were needed and sent on her way. Refusing to go home she decided a trip to the Weyr might be profitable and slowly made her way there.
Information about Knautia's dragon
Dragon Name: Cesath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Cesath is a very pale green, a soft sea green with a veil of darker green spots covering her feet. The spots, because they could be nothing other, vary in size- some as big as a man’s hand and others as tiny as a raindrop. The spots aren’t ugly by any means and they seem to disappear at times depending upon how the light hits them.
Personality: A delicate creature, Cesath tends towards being very shy. She’ll take to cowering under her wing until she’s really sure about new situations. On the same note, her shyness is quickly overcome when she senses there is someone in need. Whether that someone is man, dragon, flit, or feline she’ll feel a need to help. The caring nature she has will come out quickly and forgetting all about her timidity she’ll go into mothering mode.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
