Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: To all appearances, R'tal is a fairly ordinary looking man. He has fairly long brown hair, and grey eyes. If you look more closely at his face, you might also notice more lines of worry tha is usual for most 26 year olds, and a few faint scars from long ago Threadscores. His nose also has a slight bend in it from a long-ago breaking.
Personality: R'tal spends a lot of his time Worrying. He does it with such flair and panache that it deserves the capital letter. Give him a situation and somewhere along the line he'll worry himself into taking responsibility for it. He has a gentle personality, but the capacity for great courage and determination and the last thing he wanted was to be put in the situation where he was making the decisions. But on the other hand, now he finds it hard to be totally out of control.
History: R'tal arrived at the weyr a relatively new wingsecond and seeming just after he had set foot on the soil the Senior Queen took flight and he found himself in a position he thought as a brownrider he would never be in,; he was a very young, inexperience new Weyrleader. Slightly panic striken he threw himself into the role with a little too much fervour nearly working himself sick. Fortunately he gained the friendship of Kirren the new Healer and from that point things never looked back.
Information about R'tal's pets
Pet Name: Tyren
Pet Type: Brown Wher
Appearance: Imagine Tyren as a playful puppy who just happens to be the size of a pony, with rather lethal teeth and claws, and the ability to rip your arm off without really thinking about it, and there you have Tyren.
Personality: Hatched just after Alba's death, Tyren's gathered so much personality by now that he really deserves a character sheet of his own.
Information about R'tal's dragon
Dragon Name: Talith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: Talith is one of the larger browns of the Weyr - something that has helped him win three goldflights now, and many greenflights. A wide wingspan helps him glide easily, and he tends towards a darker brown.
Personality: K'ren has been known to occasionally tease R'tal about the randyness of his dragon - and it's true! Talith really *does* like flights that much. He views every one as a challenge, and while he doesn't use compliments enough is smart enough to occasionally trap his female before she even knows he's there.
