Name Pronounced: LEE-rah
Appearance: Lyrra is a young woman of somewhat-below-average height and slender build. She isn't muscular, but her body is well-toned from a lifetime of running around the Hold. Her hair is dark brown and cut just below her shoulders, falling straight around an attractive, somewhat exotic face. She has fine features, such as high cheekbones, a small nose and lush lips. Her eyes are almost too large, but a pretty shade of green and very expressive, set almost too wide for her face. Her complexion is common of Southerners, softly bronzed year-round. Time spent in the sun rarely bothers her.
Personality: Friendly and outgoing, Lyrra can be the very picture of confidence. She talks quite a bit (and very fast, when excited) and smiles nearly all the time. Her moods are stable and quite pleasant, she's relatively even-tempered and good-natured. Lyrra makes friends easily and keeps them nearly forever. She's extremely loyal to and protective of the people that she cares about. Hurting someone she's close to is the only sure way to actually make her angry.
History: Raised at Forest Edge Hold, Lyrra has led a good life. She's the only daughter of a Glasscrafter and his wife, and was blessed with loving parents and a happy home. Always friendly, Lyrra has never lacked for others her age to hang about with, and these solid relationships with others helped to shape a solid young woman in turn. Her path in life seemed set: she would learn her father's craft, make beautiful things, marry and settle down, and have a herd of children.
Information about Lyrra's dragon
Dragon Name: Phinth
Age: 10 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: Phinth is a strongly-coloured green, the intensity of the lime shading to her hide really seems to poke you in the eye as you look at her. Long overall, she’ll easily be one of the larger greens at full growth and will have better stamina than much of her colour, although still nothing to rival any of the males. A broad wingspan helps a long way towards that though. A much darker forest green tips her headknobs which are quite stubby. She’ll be a solidly-built dragon, not one of the lithe greens, her musculature will be well-developed from very early on.
Personality: Strong willed and stubborn, underneath Phinth is as loving as could be, but she certainly can have a prickly exterior. You won’t find her stopping to think much before rushing headlong into some seemingly crazy course of action, whether that’s flying Fall or trying to get a step ahead in her training. But then that’s the nature of greens, they need coaxing to become more thoughtful and less emotionally turbulent. As she matures she’ll become more sensible but there’ll always be that feeling of some daredevil hiding underneath that green hide, just waiting for the right moment to appear.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Phinth is not as agile as some of her green sisters. Such is the price of her larger size and improved stamina. She'll be able to last longer during Fall than many other greens, even if her turns are not as tight and perfect. Her daredevil nature is both a strength and a weakness. In flight, Phinth will do things that both exhilarate and terrify her rider. When they work out, they'll be amazing. When they don't? Just have a healer standing by.
