Name Pronounced: Sah-ril (Sare-ren--ril)
Appearance: Saerennryll has dark honey skin, dark eyes, and black hair, with a scruffy beard and goatee. He's not short, but he's certainly not tall either. He stands around 6'1" or so. He's muscular after Turns of handling runners and now dragonriding. S'ryll isn't vain so much as arrogant. There is a casualness about him, and he exudes confidence. So his appearance isn't always perfect, nor does he have that penchant for finely crafted details that others do. Someone had told him once that he could wear a wet rag and make it look good. He'd agreed. He still maintains a slight rugged look about him, like he's not afraid to get his hands dirty. None of this is to say that he doesn't look presentable and polished; he does, but a good portion of that is simply his confidence that no matter what he's wearing, he makes it look good.
Personality: Saerennryll is cocky and arrogant and feels destined to be someone great and important. He knows he's beautiful and is able to get most young Hold girls. Of course, when some of the holder girls didn't want him, well...they changed their mind eventually. He loves runners, and his confidence is partly due to his ability to handle them so well. Saere is intelligent and patient, two qualities that go a long way towards getting him what he wants. He does have a bit of a complex because his parents were nobodies in High Reaches Hold. He's decided that no matter what, that won't be him.
History: Born to two NPC workers at High Reaches Hold, Saerennryll grew up like most Hold boys, getting into trouble, doing extra chores for getting into trouble, and trying his luck with the ladies. During one such round of chores, he found himself in the stables mucking out stalls. He noticed one runner lying on its side, breathing heavily and nipping at its belly. The master beastcrafter was quite thankful that the boy had recognized the signs of colic.
Information about S'ryll's dragon
Dragon Name: Vastolth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: To call an adult Vastolth a giant would be the complete truth. Being near what's considered largest for his size he doesn't merely loom above the smaller dragons, there are bulky muscles sculpting his form to appear even larger. All his musculature is decidedly meant for use and his proud stance, with snout raised in condescending manner over his lessers, makes it seem he'd take an insult personally. At Hatching however he will seem small, and rather round, but during his first few months of Weyrlinghood he will bulk up and out into a giant of a bronze. His lower jaw's set somewhat forward and in his mouth are sharp teeth, almost as narrow as needles waiting to puncture their prey. Though when he's smaller they're prone to breaking on mouthfuls that're too big, that's something he'll outgrow within the first Turn after hatching. Across him, however, a bronze coloration stretches verging on paleness so much he stands in brilliant contrast among the
Personality: If ever there was an embodiment of the High Reaches beliefs it is Vastolth. He knows he is the top dog of the Weyr, knows that he is one of ‘the’ Bronzes, and he acts accordingly. He might not be the most intellectual dragon ever produced by High Reaches, but his bulk and physical presence make up for the lack of smarts. To him blues are nothing, browns are handy backup and greens are only good to flirt with. Only the golden queens will earn his respect, and his charm. In his mind he is a worthy mate, the most worthy of them all, and should he be rejected in anything, it could get ugly.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Vastolth is strong, and his endurance allows him to be an asset during Threadfall. He can fly far and long without tiring. Problem is he doesn't understand why others can't push themselves the same way. His arrogance plays into this, and he's a hard task master.
