Name Pronounced: (Man-are-uh)
Appearance: Manarah's hair is heavy and the black of 'between', reaching about three inches below her waist. She is not very tall, reaching about 5'9, but she is slim and the fact that she has mothered three children is unnoticeable most of the time. Manarah's eyes are a dark brown and are not considered one of her best features.
Personality: Manarah is almost always happy, though she tends to like to flirt more than most women. She enjoys assisting the Weyrling Master when her help is asked. She adores her dragon above all of her companions within the Weyr and very much loves to fight Thread. She is courageous but tends to be shy around new people. She also likes to tend to the smaller children for their mothers when she is needed and can be seen singing to them sometimes, to lull them to sleep. Manarah's voice is nice but she had no interest to further her training as a child, wanting only to be a dragonrider.
History: Manarah grew up High Reaches Hold and was the daughter of Forester, Salvon. She is the youngest of her family and was often set with the chores that her three older brothers and one older sister did not wish to do. She was always fascinated when the dragonriders came and was punished more than once for sneaking off to see them. When she was seventeen, she was Searched and allowed to go to High Reaches Weyr by her reluctant father. She failed to Impress at her first Standing and was allowed to stay at the Weyr for the next clutch. When she turned nineteen another clutch was ready to hatch and she got her wish to be a rider. She Impressed green Surith at the age of nineteen. During her Weyrling Training, she was often too excited to do anything right, much like her other eager mates. Her dragon's first mating flight did not result in a pregnancy, but the second one did. Having no way to keep the child, she fostered her first born daughter, Kalei, to one of the more prosperous holders of Arlos Hold.
Manarah had twin boys! By the names of Milloki (Mill-o-key) and Maroen (Mare-o-in). Born 8.13.4.09
Update: She died of the plague.
Information about Manarah (deceased)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Surith
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: Surith is a small green and often remains calm. She is speedy in the skies but often less careful, resulting in two Threadscores. Her more prominent Threadscore is on her hind leg, it reaches about five inches in length, but did not go very deep. Her second Threadmark is much smaller but was more dangerous, landing on Surith's neck, it goes deeper but is only three inches in length. She is a dark hunter green in coloration with ivy green streaks along the trailing edges of her wings.
Personality: Surith is much like her rider, outgoing and happy. She doesn't mind fighting Thread, but has become more wary of the menace after getting two scores. She mates as often as any other green dragon and has not found a mate to stay with yet. She likes to let the children scratch her eyeridges when she is lounging after they are finished with their lessons.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Surith is extremely speedy in the air, making her harder to catch than most in her mating flights.
