Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Jay would be surpised to hear that most people would regard him as good looking. He has sandy blonde hair that despite his attempts to keep it neat have a definite tendency to beg to be ruffled. He has now grown to be just shy of six foot tall and has the well developed physique of a dragonrider, as well as rather vivid green eyes and a disarming grin.
Personality: Jay would be known as a bit of a bleeding heart. He has always had a sense of justice that interferes terribly with his sense of self-presevation. And talk about honourable - well, if there is someone aspiring to the ideal of what a bronzerider is thought to be then it is Jay, although it's not conscious. There is one thing that is a particular quirk of his - he hates lying with a passion. He refuses to do it, and so has evolved a fair few strategies to work around this. He has always been responsible and mature beyond his years and possessed of a blind courage that has led him to be a very good wingsecond at such an early age.
History: Jayshar was an apprentice at the Harper Hall when he was searched, specialising in instrument making as his voice was mediocre at best. He had lived at the Hall all his life having no idea who his parents were - having been left there whilst still a baby. As a result he had rather a pleasant childhood, if developing a tendency to be self sufficient. He was Searched to Arolos when he was 15 for the first Clutch and had a rather eventful time in his Candidacy as he seemed to be the one out of all of them who refused to back down to the older bully, Kuligh. He stood absolutely no chance whatsoever, but sense of justice refused to let him standby when Kuligh was in full flow. Things culminated in an incident when Kulight tried to rape Tiella, another candidate and Jay intervened. Kuligh had been drinking and was murderous to say the least. Overpowering Jay, he took him to the Rim and tried to make it look like the boy had accidentally fallen to his death. Jayshar yelled for help, and it was fortunate that Talith was awake to intercept the deadly plunge, though Jay was badly injured. His life was saved, just by Weyrhealer Kirren (now K'ren) and he began a long arduous recovery.
Information about J'shar's dragon
Dragon Name: Heyoshath
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Heyoshath is a large bronze, very large. When he reaches full muscle development there is the possibility that he will be the largest bronze in the weyr. He is a deep clear colour with a high shine to his hide.
Personality: Heyoshath share the need for everyone to get along that his rider posesses, and the tendency to decided this is right and act on it swiftly. He has a powerful presence and is genuinely interested in those dragons he considers to be his "friends". He is perhaps a little serious and need to lighten up a bit, and wasn't the most talkative of dragons, but when a flight goes up he reveals himself to have a poetical side.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: His main ability is stamina. Lots of it. He can go on, and on. His sense of responsibility allows him to make a good wingseconds dragon and he is very focused on what he has to do.
