Name Pronounced: Tur-un
Appearance: Standing tall at his full adult height, Tur'on easily graces the height of five feet and ten inches tall. With age and maturity, the once seen signs of the awkward stages of puberty have obviously faded away from his frame with his body finally filling out into proper proportions. With his broad shoulders and wide chest still showing the upper body strength that he possesses as well as still giving him a bit of a hard time to find proper fitting tunics, at first it appears as if puberty had not completely took away all of it's signs. As one's eyes move down his body away from his strong and very nicely muscled upper body and find their way down to his lower half, they soon discover that the last signs of awkward puberty has disappeared. While his hips are still rather slim and squared, where his weedy legs were once holding up his broad frame now are the same weedy legs, but with a little more to them. Oh yes. Puberty did as it promised and filled out the weediness just enough to make him both look more stable on his feet and actually be more stable on his feet. Despite this change in his physical appearance, he still prefers to wear baggy pants when ever he possibly can. This is mostly due to habit and comfort more now then his desire to hide his body like it used to be.
Personality: Countless Turns of endless teasing has caused Tur'on to seem brusque and down right unfriendly when they first meet him. Though it's never out of rudeness, it's just out of caution; after all, how is he suppose to know weather or not a person will tease him like so many others have done before in the past? After spending a few moments studying the person, he can usually figure out if they are there to tease him and mess with him, but that still doesn't mean he'll be really open with them or super friendly. The countless Turns of teasing had also caused him to withdraw into himself. Before the teasing got really bad, he would be more then happy to come up to people and chat with them about anything, but that was when he was very young. Though now, he prefers to be alone instead of seeking out human company. Not that he doesn't mind human company, it's just that he won't go seeking it out. His friends will usually have to be the ones that come to find him until he truly feels comfortable with them and begins seeking them out on his own.
History: Born on the thirteenth day of the sixth month, Turgon was the last child of a Baker mother and a Miner father at Crom Hold due to his mother dying while giving birth to him. Though his brother Tthimar has never forgiven him for killing their mother, his father Mynryper held high hopes for the boy. Hoping one day that when he was old enough, he would be able to follow the rest of the men in the family down into the mines. Though it soon became apparent that his odd build combined with his habit of questioning things made him unsuitable for Minecraft work. After that point in his life, Mynryper shunned him after that and focused all of his time are his older sons. Even from a young age, being shunned by his father in this manner did not bother him as much as it did Tsleytew. After he was cut off by his father, his oldest brother took on the care and responsibility of him willingly. Knowing very well how Tthimar and Mynryper felt about him doing so.
Information about Tur'on (Turgon)'s pets
Pet Name: Galen (Gay-len)
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Barely coming at thirteen inches in length from the tip of his nose to the tip of his tail, Galen is obviously on the smaller end for Callamere blues. Though his breeding would not be recognized by Callamere Hold, it is pretty obvious from how much bigger he is when compared to firelizards of the wild breed. Despite those two facts, one can not argue his beautifully shaped body that is just clearly meant to be built for speed over everything else. Even if they aren't exactly as perfect as one would hope for. His whole body seems to have a longer then needed theme going with it. His legs are lanky and a tad longer then what would be expected. Often giving him the look as if he might, just might, be bigger then a brown. That illusion is quickly dashed away when he is actually put next to a brown and is found to be just plain small when compared to one. A lot like his legs are long, so are this little blue's wings. The only difference is that they are not only long, but they are very slender as well. Almost as if they were made to cut though they air like oars were made to cut though the ocean or a lake. Though they are not slender enough to catch a lot of air, it also helps in wind resistance when he flies. Allowing him to dart through the air much easier then one would expect of him. While his neck and his tail easily follow this pattern, they are no where near as easily noticed as his wing are due to the main fact that they are not nearly as far off in the desired length. The extra length in his tail and his neck is not something that is easily seen unless one gets up close.
Personality: Being the very friendly firelizard that he is, Galen is also a very playful little blue. There is almost no point in the day when you can not find him without a little red ball between his front claws and a look on his face that just screams 'please play with me?' to you. He is always more then willing to play with anyone who would like to play with him. Just be careful to not trick him or be dishonest. Especially with his precious little red ball. If you fake him out by pretending to throw it one way, but actually throw it in a different direction, oh boy! He's going to be one little blue ball of fury over it! Despite this, he is still one to give a second chance when it comes to having a playmate. Just so long as you promise to not trick him again.
Information about Tur'on (Turgon)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Firath (Fy-rath)
Age: 8 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: If there ever was a very handsome bronze, Firath would be the perfect image of the handsome bronze. Being on the smaller end of the scale for bronzes, he comes in at a whopping thirty-six feet in length. Easily dwarfing the smaller colors and clearly holding the size of a bronze while still actually being smaller then most of the other bronzes in the Weyr. Not that size is everything, especially when it comes to a bronze. While he was scrawny when he was first hatched, his frame had managed to fill out very nicely since then. His slim and streamline body now seems to flow perfectly and effortlessly. With his slim and streamline body blending perfectly to hide the volumes of lean muscles under his hide, one must often inspect him rather closely to find the distinct lines of muscles that are hidden so well by his hide. The one place on his body where it is easiest to see the distinct lines of his muscles are his rather large hunches, which are just packed with power. With as large and as strong as his hunches are, they truly do give him the amazing kick off power that one would think that they would. Propelling him in an almost effortless fashion as he launches himself up into the air. A side effect of having such large hunches though is the fact that they tend to make him hop a little like a hare does when he walks. This is only emphasized by the fact that his fore arms seem to be just a tad too short to properly balance out his large hunches and keep him from hopping like a hare.
Personality: Being a bronze of contradictions, Firath is far from the normal bronze in personality. While he does possess some bronze personality qualities, he is not the ideal mode of a a bronze. While most of the other bronzes on pure are all pure passion and firey, he is a lot more level headed and relaxed. He is a very warm bronze with a sunny disposition and an out going personality that is always more then willing to speak with just about anybody and everybody that even seem as if they would be in the least bit interested in having his attention on them.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: With every dragon comes a different list of abilities and weaknesses, and Firath is no exception to this. Being a bronze that is on the smaller side of the scale, his size can actually play in his favor when in the air. Unlike the larger dragons of his colors, his agility and reaction time compared to a larger bronze is superior. While a bronze that is bigger then him would have a harder time making a rather sharp, he finds the maneuver to be rather easier to complete. Though his agility is no where near as good as the dragons that are smaller then he is. While his agility may be admired by larger dragons, his very strong and heavily muscled hunches are also one of his greater abilities. While some believe that their ability to fly though the air as fast as possible is all that matters, it is also how hard and how fast you can get yourself into the air that matters as well. This bronze's hunches are the ones that prove this as they always have him being the bronze that was propelled up in the air farther then most other dragons could hope to kick off.
