Name Pronounced: kai-RELL (KELL)
At just over 6', Ky is already a mountain of a young man with broad shoulders and a stocky, muscular build that one could never call lean. Spending most of his life outdoors and on the water, his skin the healthy dusky shade of ocher dusted with darker freckles atop his shoulders, arms, and the bridge of his nose. He is not without a handful of scars, for sea life tends to teach lessons the hard way, but each has its own story and he is proud of them as only an adventurous spirit can be. Dark hair that tends to be frustratingly wavy is kept shaved close on the sides and finger-combed into passably tidy atop his skull. His face is full of strong features and sharp angles, as if hastily molded by the sculptor. Paired with intense, deep-set honey brown eyes beneath a heavy brow, he lands on the rougher side of handsome, but an easy smile helps to soften his appearance.
Always worn on his wrist, he carries a woven leather bracelet embellished with a fragment of Alberith's dark, star-covered shell preserved as a cabochon.
Personality: Stubborn is an understatement when describing Kyrel, his first instinct to buck authority when presented with the opportunity. That rebellious streak is hard to repress, making every teaching moment a struggle to be done the hard way. He resents the reputation this tends to earn him, that of a brainless brute, but if given time to learn the lesson, he isn't likely to forget it. He can be quiet, sullen, and more than a little broody at times, but smiles are not entirely absent.
History: Born the first son to a sailor by the name of Marrin and his Healer wife Kyrinna in Thonet Hold, Kyrel had an easy childhood spent running along beaches with his younger sister Kaylee and playing on the ships his father captained. He fell in love with the sea as he grew, groomed to follow in dad's footsteps long before he had the strength to turn the tiller. Ky found he had a gut he could rely on when it came to locating the best fishing for the day, and he took great pride in the speed with which he soaked up his father's knowledge. For a great deal of his early life, Ky did not question his path. He knew where he belonged.
Information about K'el's pets
Pet Name: Baby
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: A small kitten no more than a few months of age, long hair manifests as extra fuzziness at this stage. She's an awkward little thing still adjusting to her own gangly limbs, but will grow eventually into an effective vermin hunter. Her coat is a clean shade of white draped by a blanket of red and black calico splotches, a mixture of the shades of her littermates. Like her siblings, her eyes are a jewel tone, but not as bright - closer to milky jade.
Personality: A tiny, fearful runt of her litter, she is very shy around those she hasn't been introduced to. Easily distracted by toys and treats, however, strong hunting instincts mean Kyrel has to avoid her needle-sharp teeth and claws during play.
Information about K'el's dragon
Dragon Name: Alberith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Midsummer Dreamers (May 2020)
Appearance: Midsummer Dreamers - The Dark Power Egg: Such a dark egg, brooding, secretive, powerful. One cannot help feeling that this egg holds all the secrets to the universe - and then some. It even looks like the universe. As you gaze at it you will see the night sky. Look at the shimmer! The sparkle! One can get lost in the depths of the shadows. But stop! Something moves. Does it await the mere mortal who dares to enter? Will it share the secrets of the universe, or drop you into the deepest pits? Only time will tell.
Personality: Alberith bursts out of his shell ready to take on the world, then lead it. He is a king gazing out over his subjects within the Weyr, benevolent and proud. Whichever gold he claims he will have a tumultuous relationship with since he will actively want to participate in caring for the clutch. And there will be a lot of clutches because though he may be short for a bronze, but he is powerful and charismatic. It would not surprise many if he were to talk his way into winning gold flights rather than winning on flight alone.
