Name Pronounced: Mayv
Appearance: Maeve is a tall, lithe young woman, standing at a height of 5'9". The delicate curves of her willowy figure are nothing but feminine and certainly present from the small, pert breasts down a narrow waist to slender hips, though sometimes it takes the observant to truely appreciate them. She's athletic by no intention of her own, simply the results of her active craft and the Turns as a dragonrider, visible by the well-toned, but somewhat hidden muscle.
Personality: Maeve is and will forever be a fixer. If she comes across a problem, she'll go to amazing lengths to see it resolved. Patients and the riders of her larger draconic patrons often find a willing listener in her and a supportive shoulder if necessary. Should someone come to her with a problem and seek advice, she will delightedly relay any information she can to help, and if asked will solve it for them! She likes to keep spirits high and moods happy, constantly reassuring the uncertain and cheering the glum. Occasinally, her sense of self-preservation interferes with the desire to keep everyone content as she almost always puts others before herself. Some find her eternally optimistic outlook incredibly annoying, which tends to land her on their 'not-so-friendly' sides.
History: Maeve was born the child of a dragonrider and a non-riding woman within the Fort Weyr protectorate. Her mother, an unofficial healer for Fort Hold, traught her daughter what little knowledge she had to follow in her footsteps as soon as she reached the proper age. Childhood passed rather uneventfully at the Hold, and she was rapidly found to be quite adept within the healing craft. She regularly treated the results of accidents or other such things on human beings, and though she took to the craft like a ship-fish to water once the Apprenticed, there was something missing. Dragons. She loved them, wanted to be around them, and wanted everything she could do with them. So, she sought the senior Dragonhealer at Fort Weyr during a short visit at the age of 14 Turns and begged to be taken in as a student. Once accepted, she moved to the Weyr for further training.
Information about Maeve's pets
Pet Name: Mirage
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: This egg is particularly eye-catching with its reflective cobalt shell, catching the yellow-white hue of the sand and appearing an almost olive green. It was only once Maeve picked the egg up did she discover its cerulean hue and faintly white-gold sprinklings across its surface. Enchanted, it was readily scooped up along with its sibling egg.
Personality: Mirage has a tendency to hide. Maeve has no idea where or why her little blue hides but he does. It can be rather disturbing. The only time that Mirage doesn't hide is when he is with his pet in their weyr or when they are at the ocean or Weyr lake. Then he is the typical blue flit.
Second Pet Name: Vengeance
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: The egg is a bright, fiery red-orange, artistic swirls of burnished sienna curling about the exterior in almost wispy smoke-like formations. Near the top, the hues lighten to a molten-white shade, appearing as those this little 'lizard is so enthusiastic to hatch, she's going to melt her way through! That, or its been left in the hot sun for what seems to be too long. Either way, this egg just couldn't be left behind either, practically screaming 'take me with you!'.
Personality: Vengeance unlike her brother prefers to be pampered and be seen. She will happily land on anyone's shoulder or lap especially if it will give her some attention. Vengeance thinks that she is a Lady Holder and she deserves everyone's attentions. She will happily throw herself at someone to get their attentions. If her pet isn't paying attention to her she will slap her with her tail tip to get her to pay attention.
Information about Maeve's dragon
Dragon Name: Raquelth
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: Raquelth is a soothing emerald hue throughout her sleek form, save for the subtle lightening to a near peridot color upon her legs and down the length of her whip-like tail. Darker sea-green dapples are visible in a blanket pattern down the length of her spine only in the sunlight, but forest-green speckles upon her muzzle, back, and the uppersides of her wings are seen at all times.
Personality: Like rider, like dragon. Raquelth is unusually strong-willed and determined, helping to enforce her lifemate's words with actions. She is kind and loving, exuberent and perhaps hyper-active at times, but a caring, friendly dragon all the same. She'll put the desires of others above her own, especially her rider's, and put off her own needs until she becomes desperate - frequently at an inconvenient time. Maeve has tried hard to break her of that habit, but Raquelth has remained true to her nature: stubborn. If not for a tendancy to panic or overreact when her rider gets injured, and a slightly flighty attitude, she makes an excellent companion.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Very agile, depleted endurance.
