Name Pronounced: Ree-yah
Appearance: Riiya is a small, thin young woman, standing just a little above 5'2". She's thin, with small, but graceful looking curves that have finally developed. She has light brown, straight hair, cut to just below ear length. Her eyes are a blue-green color, and her skin is lightly tanned.
Personality: Riiya is an energetic, excitable girl Curious as anything, she’s generally sticking her nose into everything, asking questions whenever she can of whoever she can. Sometimes this leads to trouble, depending on who she's decided to pester, since not everyone wants to answer the questions of an endlessly curious young woman.
History: Riiya was born in a beastcraft hold, one of the younger of 6 children. She grew up quite the happy child, causing mischief now and then, but never anything serious. Like any child, when it came to thinking of the future, she could never decide on any one thing, since the future seemed such a long way off to the little girl. One day she’d want to be a Harper and travel all over Pern, the next she’d dream of being a sailor, owning her own ship and sailing the vast oceans of the planet. Like any child she dreamed of being a Dragonrider, and when her older sister Impressed, those dreams lasted a bit longer than most, but like every other dream, this one changed constantly too, though it tended to pop back up more constantly.
Information about Riiya's pets
Pet Name: Tembel
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Tembel is small for a blue, with a dark sapphire blue hide. His hide is uniform in color, without any lighter or darker markings on his body. Tembel is also a bit on the chubby side.
Personality: Tembel is very lazy. If there were awards given away for laziness, Tembel would be near the top of the list for first place. The little blue prefers to spend his time either sleeping or eating. Anything that requires the use of energy is frowned upon by this fellow, and if ordered to do a task, he does so very grudgingly, and as quickly as possible so that he can get back to the task of sleeping, preferably somewhere sunny.
Second Pet Name: Speckles
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: This green is a smaller green probably not too small but yet is definitely on the smaller scale. She is a dark leaf green with sparkles of lighter apple green. And when I mean sparkles I mean it looks like the apple green is dusted onto her darker leaf green hide. It definitely seems to make her sparkle under the sun but really she isn't truly sparkling. Of course she's perfectly proportioned.
Personality: This green is one of the most demanding greens you might run across. She's very much lady-like that is until she wants something. She looovvvves shiny things I mean love them, though all that glitters may not be worthwhile, she doesn't seem to grasp that. She's very flighty and playful with a very indecisive nature. She'll play with anyone and hums at the weirdest times. Whenever she flies she has the oddest tendency to fly west no reason why, she just does. The only good thing about her is that when she seems satisfied she'll be quieter more observing, at least for a little while.
Information about Riiya's dragon
Dragon Name: Sildarth
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: Sildarth will be on the smaller side for a green without being tiny. She'll be a bit tomboyish looking though rather than overtly feminine. She'll be a lighter green without drifting into the pale spectrum, with hints of dark green on the top of her head, in streaks down her wings, and at the very tip of her tail.
Personality: An avid animal lover, Sildarth will welcome any and all pets into her life. If her lifemate decided to keep a feral tunnelsnake or a bug as a pet, she'd welcome them too. The biggest problem will be keeping her from wanting to take in any stray animal that comes across her path. Because of her love of animals, she will struggle a bit one her first couple of kills as a Weyrling. Never enough to risk her panicking or going between, but she'll definitely be upset. After that she'll just strive to be as quick and efficient at hunting as possible and won't scare the herdbeast herds into running any more than necessary.
