Name Pronounced: Oar - in
Appearance: Or'in has short mahogany brown hair that tends to stand up at the front especially if he has been running his hands over his face. Or'in has lightly tanned skin and a clear complexion he has bright blue eyes that look like the blue of the sky. Or'in is quite thin and is of medium height and apart from his eyes is quite average looking and likes not standing out. Or’in’s nose is quite small and his face is symmetrical in spacing and the face is slightly oval in shape.
Personality: Or'in does not like standing out, if he can pull it off he will go out of his way to do extra work but prefers for others not to know and does not do it for recognition. As can be expected Or'in is very shy he has trouble making friends and meeting new people, it's not that he is antisocial it's just hard for him and he gets worried. Or'in is also quiet he will often be found at the edge of a group listening intently but not saying much unless it's important. But Or'in cannot be said to be a pushover he makes his own mind up and can be stubborn about things that he considers important and right. He likes helping people and will be loyal to those he spends time with as well as his friends. He wants friendship and to feel like he belongs and is both needed and wanted. Or'in did not think that he would impress but to impress Jontruth on his first impression was beyond his greatest dreams and never wants Jontruth to regret it or for him to fail Jontruth.
History: Or'in was born Orkin the only child of Lyundia and Jyzeleb farmers at Forest Edge hold. Jyzeleb spends most of his time in the fields while Lyundia spends most of her time with work in the buildings and feeding the animals. Orkin grew up helping to feed animals and gather the crops. He learnt reading, writing and figuring numbers with all the other children who live around Forest Edge. Orkin would sometimes when all the work was done lie on the grass and look at the sky and dream about flying. He has always wanted to fly and help people and dragonriders can do both so when he got searched he jumped at the chance though he didn't think anything would come of it and to his everlasting surprise and elation he impressed brown Jontruth on his first impression. Though he does miss his parents as they were very close.
Information about Or'in's dragon
Dragon Name: Jontruth
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: Jontruth may not be much to look at when he emerges from his shell, but he doesn't seem to mind. Fairly average in appearance, his hide is the colour of stone. Given his quiet nature, he might easily be the sort who will blend into the background, even once he grows into the well-muscled brown he will be as an adult. His movements are slow and measured, and when he flies, he will be steady, with plenty of endurance to last during a Fall.
Personality: Jontruth is very loyal and will always be there for Or'in when he needs to talk or just have another presence. While he is always willing to spend a lot of time being in the same place if it is needed he does have the unconscious habit of flapping his wings without realizing it most of the time. This is not because he is nervous it is because he wants to do help Or'in immediately. Jontruth is a dragon that likes being clean and in the water and often wants Or'in to join him as he believes that as water is so much fun his rider needs to join him for the fun and will often cause a wave of water to lap Or'in feet when he washes the dragon. Jontruth likes being close to Or'in and is always willing for him to sleep beside him and when he is bigger will often create a couch for his rider using his legs.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Jontruth is, above all things, loyal. His lifemate will be the center of his world, and while he will be friendly enough to other people, he'll never be a particularly talkative dragon. That said, he definitely has a mind of his own. He will often act against the expressed wishes of his lifemate or those in authority if he thinks it necessary, and he will not always communicate his plans clearly. He is ambitious, but he will know his own strengths. While he might never rise to being a Wingleader, he might strive to be a Wingsecond, at which he would excel, quietly doing what needed to be done for the rest of his wing. His movements are slow and measured, and when he flies, he will be steady, with plenty of endurance to last during a Fall.
