Name Pronounced: D-ire
Appearance: A small boy, Darsite has dark brown hair and pale blue eyes. His nose seems too large for his square face, but his wide, thin-lipped mouth somehow balances it. His pale skin is prone to freckles, and burns easily in the slightest sun.
Personality: Darsite loves attention, especally from handsome boys. However, his extrovert ways have been getting him noticed by the wrong people lately, but after he realised the natural results of being 'found out', Darsite is currently pretending an interest in pretty girls. This has resulted in him being secretly unhappy. He has always been a natural leader, always ready to help others, but always with a new prank to play. He is being much quieter these days, as he is scared that his secret would make his friends desert him. When he realised he had a crush on one of his friends, he gave in to years of prodding from some of the Creche workers and became a candidate to seperate himself from his crush. He wants to be an important dragonrider and knows that being found out would nix that.
History: Born to Dragonriders, Darsite grew up in the Creche and never saw the need to be interested in two people uninterested in him - his parents, whoever they were. He had a happy childhood, with many friends to play with. Then puberty hit, and Darsite began to realise he was slightly different than most of his friends. He withdrew for a time, untill he realised his friends wanted to know what the problem was. Making up a story about being snubbed by a pretty girl, Darsite began to live a lie, which he is willing to continue for the rest of his life, if he is lucky enough to impress brown or bronze.
Information about D'ire's dragon
Dragon Name: Andreth
Wing (Weyrling Group):
Appearance: Hatched 220.127.116.11
Personality: When Andreth wants your attention, he wants it now. It doesn't matter if you're bathing or even relieving yourself. He will never understand when
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Andreth isn't a very large blue nor very muscled making him have even less endurance than is normal for a blue, but he uses that to his advantage and has learned to use his speed and reflexes making him a quick turn. His want to 'fetch' has translated into him having a bad habit of trying to chase down thread, but as long as his chosen watches him he can be kept in place. His control of his flame has also benifited from this want as he is rather good at quick and rather accurate bursts of flame. He does have a problem 'putting on the breaks' though as it were and instead usualy tries to do a quick turn or skip between rather then actually stopping.
