Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Even without the dark circles under his eyes or the angry red scar across his face, both which heís carried since that abortive night when Fort fell to the resistance, Lítianys would be a striking looking man. Fierce, some would even say, with his thick, dark brown hair, sharp brown eyes, and heavy brow - an image emphasized by the perpetual scowl on his face. Only the laugh lines around his eyes remain as a whisper of kinder, happier past times.
Personality: To most people, Lítianys will come off as cold and distant. He keeps all would-be friends and acquaintances at bay with a shield of chilly civility, letting no one close. Just as well, as his temper rides on a knifeís edge. While he is generally successful at keeping it in check, the smallest, most unpredictable thing could be enough to crack his otherwise formidable self control. And woe be to the one whoís there when he does explode, for Lítianys has a sharp tongue and a caustic wit and is afraid to use neither. Oddly enough, heís never resorted to physical admonishments. Thatís the one line he will not cross, even when in a towering rage.
History: Lítianys was born Laetianys, the son of a bronzerider and a gold candidate - the proud scion of a long line of dragonriders, many of whom rode browns and bronzes. His mother transferred out of Fort shortly after his birth but his father remained to have a direct hand in his raising.
Information about L'tianys's dragon
Dragon Name: Kaloth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Kaloth is a big dragon, even for one of his color, a great hulking brute of a beast. His body is heavily muscled and evenly proportioned. His head is wider than usual and endowed by a very prominent set of eye ridges, giving him an extra ferocious appearance.
Personality: Despite his rather intimidating outward appearance, Kaloth is an even tempered, level-headed dragon and can be relied upon to keep his head under even the most stressful of scenarios. At times, only Kalothís soothing presence will succeed in pulling Lítianys out of one of his terrible rages or depressive moods.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Kaloth is a large and powerful beast - well able to last all of fall and then some. That said, maneuverability and agility will always be a challenge for him.
