Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: A’nyr is tall and very skinny, almost too skinny. He seems to have a waif-like, paranoid look about him with wide darting eyes and tense stance. He might be termed cute, if he stuck around long enough for anyone to see him. Short spiked-up brown hair and a well shaped face make him quite good to look at, for those he trusts.
Personality: A’nyr was always slightly skittish, and his Impresstion to Troniuth only made that more pronounced. He shies away from large groups, and even small groups. You’ll be lucky to be able to approch him by yourself before he slips away. He does, however, know that he must be around people during fall and is a reliable rider, unafraid of pain, and brave enough should it come down to the line. But as soon as he’s down on the ground again, he’s off hiding away with his Dragon or in a dark corner of the Dining hall listening to everyone else talk without them knowing he’s there. If they DO notice? He’ll be gone in a matter or moments.
History: Aronyr (Ah-rhon-eer) was born at Ista Weyr to drudge parents and put in the creche where he has been since before he can remember. He lived the typical creche life, drudging when he got old enough, and the only thing he was brave about was Candidacy. . . He stood on the stands every Hatching until he Impressed at the age of fifteen to an equally skittish Blue named Troniuth (Trohn- ee- uhth). Again, he stayed skittish around people, but was excellent at anticipating Thread movements and so he and Troniuth have never been injured. The weyrleadership thought that his skittish nature might disolve in the warm, friendly climate of Arolos Weyr and transfered him there without asking him if he wanted too. . . Which he didn’t. He knew all of the nooks and crannies in his current home and didn’t want to go somewhere new, with new people. . . What were they thinking?! But, in his typical nature, he just did as he was told, without protesting openly.
Information about A'nyr's pets
Pet Name: Kika
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: She's a mottled green, a whirl of emerald and jade that runs over her body like liquid crystal. She's only a Hatchling, but she seems petite.
Personality: She's very attached to Troniuth, and to a lesser degree A'nyr. She's not much more right now than eat, sleep, poop.
Information about A'nyr's dragon
Dragon Name: Troniuth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Troniuth is a matt blue-black dragon. If he wasn’t do dark, his matt, unshining hide would make him quite plain and un-noticable. When sunning himself, however, slight patterns can be seen on his hide, dancing spirals and swirls and spots of lighter and darker color. This hidden beauty is unmarred by Threadscore or other injuries. His wings, tail, and neck are all in equal proportions of size and he could be deemed just an average blue dragon. . . If it wasn’t for his skittish nature and his odd hide.
Personality: Troniuth is more skittish than even his rider, avoiding contact with most dragons unless flying Thread or chasing the rare green on occation. He speaks to no one but his rider, unless, again, during Threadfall where he has to, just to survive and help the others. It is his duty after all, what he was born too.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Troniuth is EXTREMELY skittish and will probably run from anyone approching him that he doesn’t know intimately. . . And then again, he may run even if he DOES know them intimately. Only his rider can approach him without a chance of him running. His eyesight is very very good and coupled with A’nyr’s ability to predict where the clumps go that he sees, he has been able to avoid all injury thus far.
