Name Pronounced: beh-nem
Appearance: Maybe standing at 5'7" at most, Be'nem falls short of talk, dark and handsome. His brown hair has already begun to gray somewhat as it retreats towards the back of his head, leaving a thin tuft of hair between two far reaching widower's peaks and, as a result, making his forehead look rather large. He has large, inquisitive blue eyes that reveal a cunning mind behind them. Stubble is a near constant presence on his face, as he shaves perhaps once ever two sevendays. Once in a while he'll grow a full beard, though to his dismay it's starting to look grayer than brown. Be'nem is a very tidy man, doing everything in his power to appear presentable at all times, though he isn't exactly a fan of what passes for ''fashion'' in this Pass. There is a feline quality to his movements and has a habit of sneaking up on people.
Personality: Be'nem plays his part, and he plays it smart. Always prepared with a witty comment or well timed sarcasm, getting along is something that this greenrider excels at. He needs to be that guy that everyone likes; there isn't really any other way for a greenrider to make something of themselves. Sure, he could climb ranks in the wings but why? He has no interest in sticking his and Mirajath's neck out for that ''glory'' that some riders to be obsessed with. No, he'd rather use his mind. He was gifted with above average intelligence and the gift of gab for a reason after all.
History: (Born in the 2nd Pass)
Information about Be'nem's dragon
Dragon Name: Mirajath
Wing (Weyrling Group): CandidateMasters
Appearance: Thin and quick, Mirajath is pure agility in the air. Her hide is light green towards the tip of her nose but slowly gradiates into a darker tone the further along her body you go. She has a couple threadscores on her, earned from a youthful sense of invicnibility. Luckily for her, there hasn't been another threadscore added to the collection in the past twenty turns.
Personality: Whereas Be'nem acts nice with an ulterior motive, Mirajath is niceness incarnate. She is genuinely sweet and worries in a very motherly way over other dragons, no matter how much larger they are than her. This extends to all creatures; no matter how ugly, vicious or stinky they are... she will love them and be very sad when Be'nem inevitably takes them away. She doesn't rise as often as other greens do, but when she does her personality completely flips and she becomes a vicious little harpy that has been known to try to claw and bite other dragons during her flights. It's a good thing they rarely last more than ten minutes at most. As soon as the flight is over, she's back to normal and feeling really really really sorry for anyone she hurt... to a point that she might ignore the dragon that caught her to mother over the one she accidentally hurt.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: She can turn on a dime.
