Name Pronounced: Ye-yu
Personality: Yiyu is timid to a fault. Often lost in a crowd, she will not often speak up for herself and regularly apologizes for more or less existing. More often than not, she feels like everything going wrong is her fault. Stunned at being searched, she regularly prefers to hide out rather than socialize with other Candidates, is somewhat fearful of riders as well as in awe of them, and occasionally simply feels she is not good enough for the Weyr. Though no one has managed to break passed her walls yet, there is always hope that someone, or something, will draw this young woman out of her shell. Even if she can't see that hope herself.
History: Born to a small no-name hold, Yiyu grew up the youngest of four. The only girl in her family, this in part explains her attitude towards the world and herself. Her brothers ranged from rough and tumble to mean, and she had no mother figure to speak of as the poor woman was spent from repeated miscarriages. Her father, a heavy handed, sometimes physically so, man, only allowed her to go to the Weyr because he viewed her as useless to himself. Reaching the Weyr recently, she has come to find herself. She was searched, true, but she herself is still *searching*.

Information about Yiyu's dragon

Wing (Weyrling Group): Midsummer Dreamers (May 2020)

Personality: Mertrith is a naturally suspicious dragon. From the moment she's hatched she's convinced that others are out to trick her if they and does everything to try not to draw attention to herself to increase this chance. She's also a very curious dragon and will spend the rest of her time investigating and trying to find out about the world around her. She'll be smart and have a better memory for a green which will may or may not be a good thing.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: She'll be a fast dragon, but what she has in speed she'll lack in stamina.
