Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: A lanky 6'3", R'vyn is a sight to behold. It isn't his tanned, mocha-latte skin or his deep jade eyes ... it's mostly his hair. Somehow, the dragonrider has found a way to turn his spikey locks -blue-... a secret he's kept concealed from most everyone who asks.
Personality: R'vyn's personality is about as off-the-wall as his appearance. He truly lives for the now - what happened yesterday is only a memory and what happens tomorrow is merely a dream. We might all die in Threadfall tomorrow, might as well enjoy what we've got this moment, right? This attitude, combined with his alluringly strange appearance, has snared him many women - and while he's not egotistical, he's not exactly modest, either. He knows he's good, and he has confidence in his ability to charm and please.
History: Ravyn was the son of Satelyn and Ravstere. His father was a Masterweaver, and so it was only natural that the eldest son take after his father. Ravyn worked hard at his Apprenticeship, finding that when he tried his hand at dyeing cloth, he was more successful than people who had been dyeing for turns...
Information about R'vyn's pets
Pet Name: Fin
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Fin is a bit large for his color, with a bit more muscle and bulk than most blues hold. The ridges on his back are larger than normal, with one that's almost grotesquely huge between his wings - it looks like the dorsal fin of a shipfish, hence his name. His color is a sinuous ocean-blue, with criss-crossing hatches of cerulean on his wings and tail. His left foreclaw looks as though it was dipped in ink, and there's stray splashes of that deep midnight color on his chest and over his neck. He's a very interesting-looking little flit, to say the least.
Personality: From the moment he hatched, Fin's curiousity overwhelmed him. He played with his shell for a good three minutes before he ever paid attention to the food that R'vyn was offering him. He's got an unusual sense of focus for all the wrong things - trundlebugs are a source of endless delight for the little firelizard, and he could spend candlemarks watching the little creatures.
Information about R'vyn's dragon
Dragon Name: Manilth
Age: 4 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Manilth is a lean, wiry bronze, with ridges that seem almost..exaggerated, giving him a spikier-than-normal appearance. His tail seems stretched, and his hide is a dazzling, creamy bronze tone, with undertones of a darker bronze streaked throughout his body. His wings are predominantly a brassy color, and his wing-sails are colored with a russet-bronze tone.
Personality: Manilth is a curious dragon. He wants to know about everything and everyone. He wants to experience everything. He wants to know the difference between the feel of the Northern wind on his wings and the Southern sun. He wants to go everywhere possible and see every corner of Pern...! But that can wait. Right now, he wants to experience Arolos. This...Arolos place is interesting. The bronzes are many and the greens are...well, very green. He's not especially talkative unless you get him on a subject he likes, like traveling - then he'll talk your ear off, given half the chance. He's got bronze arrogance, but the curiosity of a hatchling...he *will* fly that green, and he will see the entirety of Pern before his time is up.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Manilth's only true problem is the fact that he thinks he can catch every bit of Thread in the air, and he'll try unless scolded firmly by his rider. Luckily, he has no scores, not now anyway...but that's sure to change.
