Name Pronounced: Gay ah tree
Appearance: At an average height of 5' 7", Gayatri is a beauty. With a combination of blue-green eyes and curly honey blond hair, she is always smiling. A peaches and cream complexion, darkened with a tan, and full lips, combined with her feminine curves, make her very appealing. Working with her hands has made her dextrous, and strong, for a girl of her age.
Personality: Light hearted and carefree, Gayatri makes friends very easily. However, she is no stranger to working hard, and can often be seen in the middle of things, busily helping out where needed. A natural leader, Gayatri is often put in charge of her assigned tasks. Getting them done quickly and efficiently is the way she works. When the work is done, however, she can be seen surrounded by her friends, laughing and joking. Gayatri gets along with nearly everyone, and almost never holds a grudge.
History: Life at a sea hold is busy, maybe busier than any other place, since they have to deal with storms at sea, as well as Thread. Life on the coast is a thrilling, if dangerous, way to live. Always, there are things to do. Born the second of two daughters, Gayatri doesn't have any brothers, so she is always busy. One day, while looking near the beach for herbs, she came upon a firelizard hatching in progress. One of the tiny creatures had somehow wandered away from the group, and gotten itself tangled in a bush. Freeing it, Gayatri fed it a bit of the bread she had with her. They have been together ever since. The firelizard, a brown, was named Ardon. When she brought him back to the Hold, there was a bit of an argument over whether she would keep him.

Information about Gayatri's dragon
Dragon Name: Edyth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Forgotten of Foreth (Off-Screen Hatching)
Appearance: A sleek and shiny green, Edyth loves to spend time down by the lake, getting her hide washed. Her glossy skin ranges from bright grass green on her back, to a dark emerald green on her lower sides and stomach, with a few shade varioations in between. Her brilliant mulitfaceted eyes are always sparkling.
Personality: Edyth absolutely adores when people, even those besides Her Gayatri, pay attention to her. She loves being cuddled, coddled, hugged and touched, and insisted that Gayatri carry her nearly everywhere, when she was still small enough for it to be possible. Sadly, Gayatri is no longer able to do so, but Edyth now has the joy of carrying Her rider, instead. Edyth hasn't really outgrown her need to be touched as often as possible, however.
