Name Pronounced: ki-GRUH
Appearance: His vibrant green eyes, gleaming with pride, haven't the scrawny characteristics that're present everywhere else. Across him muscles carve a sleek frame, concealing the anorexia he once suffered from despite rapid metabolism not letting him move beyond his gangly, 5 foot-11 inches. Since he'll never gain, or lose, weight he's so skinny the veins underneath his pale skin are noticeable. Tambrath, however, keeps him outside within the harsh sunlight longer. The straight, short hair offers some protection for his vulnerable skin, though not enough it would seem on the occasions he's going around sunburnt from the amount of practice Tambrath wishes they get. Frame amid those darker red locks, the sunken cheeks and squared jaw are more angular, more prominent as they're in contrast against that hair.
Personality: A passion drove him toward his direct approach and, drunk on ambition, he'll tackle whatever project he received with an unpredictable force seeming meant for intimidation. When someone cowers the entertainment he got from the spontaneous start deepens until his fierceness comes across even sharper, there's never guilt or remorse over it should he unnerve anyone. No others matter unless they're a goldrider because those shinies have an importance he can respect.
History: Whether their parents expected twins remains unknown. Kyraag never asked since all he cared about was having been born several hours before Kirtahg. Ista Hold was pleasant when growing up but Kyraag quickly developed an independence streak. The famine disrupted everything, hitting Kyraag hard enough he couldn’t recover entirely even with his twin’s support.
Information about K'gra's pets
Pet Name: Citruse
Pet Type: Gold Wher
Appearance: Her size, mid-range between Callamere and Wild parentage, will make her mixed-breed rather apparent. There’s no excess musculature but her curvature is mere shallow depressions that’re rather teasing about what could’ve been possible. Wide-set hips, likewise, indicate what could’ve been, they’re also wide enough that she'll have no trouble laying eggs. Her weight is somewhat under average considering her breed, however, 849 pounds doesn’t leave her particular trim either. Neither would her hide come across as dark or bland. The colors are as bright and shining as fresh spun gold. One can even see faint chartreuse lines that’ve woven themselves among the wrinkles that’re normally present. Chances are, given her current brightness, that she'll be positively radiant on her mating runs.
Personality: The pride Citruse possesses must've outgrown even her stature. One can see its presence within her assertion that everyone, when visiting K'gra, view her/her person as the foremost authority. She'll exclude another gold from those rules and recognize they're her equals, rather than something less important. When around her person, however, his scent, voice, presence, etc across her senses made lumping him in among other two-legs impossible. Anyone would consider this notable once they're aware that she views two-legged walking as unnatural. Unnatural because all other creatures, outside humanity, use their second, non-wings for getting around. This means she's rather uneasy around other two-legged humans and her ego would never accept letting them see her reluctance.
Information about K'gra's dragon
Dragon Name: Tambrath
Age: 6 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: The refined, dark emerald creature Tambrath grew into seems rather different from the gangly appearance she started out with. Tambrath swims and does whatever she can to keep, or increase, the well-toned muscles that're making her more muscular than the average green. Being of average-size herself, she'll amaze everyone over how quickly she moves about, only K'gra isn't for they've worked hard together to insure they did their utmost to better themselves, as well as keep their bodies in top shape. It is very important to Tambrath that she and her lifemate ALWAYS be in top form. Not every lifemate is equipped to keep up with her standards unfortunately, and this might cause some problems, at least until she comes to realize her lifemate's limitations.
Personality: Bursting from her shell she kicked out one end, pushed out the other and announced that she had arrived! For Tambrath there's no dilly-dallying and was rather interesting right from the get go. She's very adventurous so often her lifemate'd be watching her start digging, pushing sand and rock around too if something should catch her eye. She's even somewhat of a snob at times, especially if she IS certain that she's RIGHT about the topic being discussed. Likewise her taste in possessions leans toward the finer things in life and her lifemate had better enjoy them too because Tambrath'll want to be as cultured as a dragon can be. To that end she seeks out artistic works and, oddly, weapons to collect. Why a dragon would collect art and weapons such as knives may baffle some, her lifemate's included there, but he'll be pressured to do anything that'd make his green happy with everything. If that means collecting more crafted work and learning more and more about it, then so be it.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: She's intelligent for green, always learning more about the world around her and asks a lot of questions. Not to mention she wants to explore and watch things herself, perhaps that's where her love of cultural things arose from , or perhaps not, either way her appetite for learning is insatiable though it falls into second place below her need to exercise. Her stamina and agility are above average and she can put on sudden bursts of speed when needed. It's going quicker than those bursts which stymies her so she won't ever be the quickest green around.
