Name Pronounced: Bul-bee
Appearance: Big and bulky, well-muscle and standing at well over 6 feet Bl'by looks like the sort of person other people should be afraid of. And he can loom, sure enough, if he has to, but mostly his body-language tends towards the apologetic, backing away from fights where he can.
Personality: Give him a few blue and greenriders to hang out with and Bl'by can be as happily social as you like, laughing and joking like a normal person. It's only if you add browns and bronzes to the mix it gets awkward. Add a gold and Bl'by is going to very politely to find somewhere else to be.
History: Searched from a Hold outside Fort, Bl'by fitted well as a bluerider at Fort. He was big enough not to be an easy target and quiet enough that most people had no reason to pick a fight with him. Inclined to do what he was told and do it well and mostly leaning towards a belief that those above him had reasons for what they did Bl'by was the type of bluerider who could do well at Fort. He and Traynth were trusted to help young blueriders settle in the wing once they'd left Weyrlinghood, steady enough that no-one would worry he would whisper sedition in their ears. Given the knowledge that he could do his job well Bl'by thrived.
Information about Bl'by's dragon
Dragon Name: Traynth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Traynth is a uniform dark blue, a touch darker than navy. He was born the runt of the Clutch and while he grew he's always been on the small side for a blue. He has a particularly long tail, flexible enough at the end that he can wrap it tightly around his rider's ankle. Unfortunately a life-long habit of chewing it when he's feeling anxious has left scars around the end of it.
Personality: Traynth was a shy little blue even before Harth, inclined to do anything that would earn himself and his rider a pat on the head. Harth was bad for the pair of them, the tail-chewing got out of control and anxiety grew to a point of near constant panic. He's calmer now, but calmer is relative. He still clings to his rider in a manner more suited to a Weyrling than an adult dragon and it takes relatively little from a ranker to get him miserable.
