Character type: Weyrling
Appearance: Barely old enough to be a candidate, Ranolt is still just a young boy, and a small one at that. Still a few turns away from puberty, he is still short, only 4'10", though he is average in weight for his height and age. Perhaps one day he'll grow into the tall man he wishes to be, but that day will be a long time in coming.
Personality: For someone so young, Ranolt is remarkably sure of himself. Or maybe he just hasn't learned yet that he isn't at the totem pole like he likes to think he is. He's a smart boy with a quick wit, and that has made him arrogant. And why shouldn't he be? Despite having always been a little small, he's managed to have avoided being picked on for the majority of his youth. He claims his ability to tell a joke and get his would be attackers to laugh is the reason, and that may be part of it, though the fact that his father is a bronzerider is likely the bigger reason for it.
History: Father: T'ayn of bronze Abisoth - 38, Wingrider at Fort Weyr (prepass -16.01.19)

Personality: She’s charming, she could charm the pants right off you… and then take them. She has an unrelenting obsession for hoarding, especially anything that’s shiny. She will be all sweet and adorable to your face, but she’s really trying to find a way to get the ring of your finger. She’s clever and crafty, but also has a terrible memory and will often hide away her things only to forget about them or where they were. Her owner better learn to bolt down anything they care about. Her owner may wonder if this green even likes them, or if its all an ulterior motive to steal something, but there are little things in the way she acts that show she really does love her pet. Once in a while she might even bring them a shiny prize.
Information about R'ol's dragon
Dragon Name: Dalvoth
Age: 2 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): None
Appearance: Egg: Add the Peeling Egg to the list of not so pleasant looking eggs in the clutch. At first blush this egg could be seen as cheery with a patchwork of purple, yellow, greens, and light blue taking up most of the egg, but a closer look reveals that the those colors seem to be layers of egg peeled away like you would peel bits of shell from a hard boiled wherry egg. Further, the edges of the egg are an ominous red color that almost seems to glow and towards the bottom of the egg the eery red glow starts to encroach on the more 'cheery' peeling parts.
Personality: Many dragons are self-centered, but some truly feel like they are the best dragon on Pern. Unfortunately he was born blue and will never hold real power, but that doesn't stop him from trying. He's single-minded, charismatic, and will try one thing after another to gain power.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
