Name Pronounced: Muh-GAUL
Appearance: Sandy brown hair that has a wave to it when it's short - which it is, round hazel eyes. Roman nose, oval face. Hair parts naturally on the left. Also sports a light brown birthmark on his right shoulder that is long, thin, and resembles a knife. 6' tall, medium build. As a matter of fact, with his clothes on he looks kind of wimpy, but that's only dressed. When he's not dressed he has one heck of a six-pack and a firm ass, both of which he's very proud of.
Personality: M'gal doesn't take things super seriously - he makes a joke out of most things - even those things he really shouldn't joke about. When pressed, however, he will go into 'serious' mode. He's actually a hard worker, though he does a lot of things his own way and in his own time. While he's not necessarily a rebel, he doesn't work well with authority and will do things his own way. Well, except when it matters - such as, when fighting Thread. Then he will follow directions - until Threadfall is over. Then he will go back to his natural ways.
History: M'gal - born Magenol - was the son of a blacksmith and a tanner at Telgar Hold. He didn't have the build for blacksmithing, so he always figured he'd go into tanning like his mother. Until his mother decided she wanted to move to a warmer climate when he was 8. She just up and left one day - he came back from Harper lessons and she was gone. What he didn't know was that his parents had been fighting for some time (well, he knew there were fights, but didn't know how bad they were,) and one day things came to a head. After some consideration, both parents decided it would be best for Magenol to stay at Telgar.
Information about M'gal's dragon
Dragon Name: Ozayith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Pale bronze with darker highlights. His head, wingtips and tail are darker also. Average sized dragon - not the smallest in the Weyr but not the largest. His wings are somewhat large for his body, making him more likely to glide than flap. When he and M'gal were Weyrlings this was something of a challenge for them, but it also wasn't the first time that a dragon was born with slightly different proportions than the norm.
Personality: Ozayith tries to keep M'gal out of trouble, but is not very successful at it. He's a little more serious, and a lot more cautious. This helps immensely since there have been times M'gal wanted to do something unwise, but Ozayith flat-out refused. He is also super, _super_ friendly to the ladies. And doesn't care if they are ridden by men or women, much to his rider's chagrin at times.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: Can glide longer than most dragons, and can usually achieve height faster. However, this does sometimes hamper his speed if he's not careful. And careful - he's overly cautious. He takes a lot of persuading to do something that he feels is too dangerous for his rider.
