Name Pronounced: Ear- ee-dan
Appearance: At 22 Turns old, Iridan is likely one of the oldest Candidates still standing. He has darker skin tanned by years now of Arolos sun, warm brown eyes, and short, somewhat wavy black hair. He has a stocky build, and is muscled by the same hard work expected of most Candidates. Now fully grown, Iridan stands at an impressive 6 feet even.
Personality: Iridan tends to be outspoken and confident although he can become unintentionally arrogant. He is intensely proud of following in his parents' line of work, as well as having two flits and being a Candidate. He prefers to always be the "leader" of whatever group he's in, though he doesn't mind if someone else wants to take charge.. Iridan is loyal to those close to him, which is mainly his family and flits, though his friends are also important. He doesn't like show-offs though. He is a hard worker, though sometimes he works too hard, or can be persuaded into doing another's work.
History: Both of his parents are alive, both of them Harpers, though his father travels and his mother prefers being in one place.. He is devoted to both his parents, and enjoys when his father comes to see them, because he always brings a surprise. The most recent time was when he was given two flit eggs, which hatched into Rogue and Chatter. He is his parents' only child.

Information about Iridan's dragon
Dragon Name: Kraketh
Wing (Weyrling Group): Night Glory
Appearance: Kraketh comes out of his shell all legs and wings flailing. This dark blue Hatchling is a bit chubby in his body, but has long, thin legs and unusually large wings. He's awkward on the ground, but in the air and in the water he's very agile.
Personality: Kraketh is another dragon that loves the water. He'll spend most of his time in there and his favorite thing to do is to try to sneak up on unsuspecting victims and drag them under to dunk them or splash water all over them. He also loves fish. Unfortunately, they don't love him. They cause him to belch, sometimes bringing the fish right back up. But he still loves them and will take any chance he gets to go fishing.
