Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Dark brown-black hair, with natural curls, cropped short so that the ends barely brush the nape of her neck. Piercing eyes, also brown in color, but a clear, light shade, set deeply into her face, with arching eyebrows. A nose that stops just short of being prominent, and lips that are just a bit wider than average. Striking, is the word to describe her; her features aren't enough to be called pretty, but she is striking. Nimoya is around 5'10", with a frame that would be almost too-skinny, if it weren't for the muscles she developed from all the turns as a dragonrider.
Personality: Nimoya is a girlie girl. Horrified by blood and gore, and dirt and muck. She likes babies and children, flowers and pets, and has ideals of what a weyrmate should be like. She has no desire to prove herself as good as a man, nor does she particularly care when a female rider is treated condescendingly by a male rider of equal rank. She was raised a proper hold girl, and was too firm in her mindset by the time other possibilites entered her worldview. But she was raised to know her worth, and though she's not outspoken, she's hardly a submissive waif trembling in the wind. Generally approachable to all types of people, but because of the paranoia that made her request the transfer, Nimoya does tend to silently panic when she looks or acts less than perfect in front of people. The turn she's spent in Arolos has relaxed her somewhat, to the point where, now, it's just strangers that make her neurotic. When it's near Millajeth's rising, Nimoya becomes a bit more emotional than normal.
History: Birthing Day - 2nd Day of the 9th Month
Information about Nimoya's dragon
Dragon Name: Millajeth
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: Millajeth is one of the smaller greens in the Weyr. Probably not the smallest, but very close to it. Her hide is mostly a brilliant pine green,but there are a few patches in her hide, "freckle" spots, that are more emerald green than pine, a difference that only shows in sunlight. Perfectly formed, Millajeth is svelte and feminine looking, with an inherent grace in every movement.
Personality: A confident little thing, Millajeth is completely fine with her small stature. She's so confident, in fact, that she's quite flirty, even when she's not near flight days. When near rising, Millajeth becomes lazy instead of testy. The green doesn't really understand why her rider is so concerned with what other people think, or, why most humans think the way they do. Still, Millajeth tries her best to be supportive of whatever silly human thing her rider chooses to do.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Her smaller size makes Millajeth a fraction faster than most greens, but her endurance is proportionately less.
