Name Pronounced: KEN-tie
Appearance: Kintai is about 5'7". She has short black hair and green eyes which normally sparkle with laughter. She is very graceful, but not very strong or fast. There is almost always a smile on her face; some say that she even smiles when she is fighting thread! Her face is sort of heart-shaped, sitting on top of a thin neck, small shoulders, and curved body. She has one scar that goes from her jaw line to her abdomen where Cohath accidentally scratched her upon his hatching.
Personality: Kintai has a witty sense of humor, and uses it. However, she knows when to be serious, when to be compassionate, and when to walk away. She is willing to help any Weyrling or older rider with their charge, but her main focus, other than her weyr, is Cohath. She does have a dark side, which her history will tell. Sometimes she remembers her childhood, and becomes impossible to talk to for a while. Even then, Cohath has trouble talking to her.
History: Kintai was born in a small hold that looks to Telgar Weyr. As a child, she was fairly happy, until an illness hit her hold, wiping out many people in her hold, but thankfully was exterminated before it spread to other holds. It killed almost everyone she knew, including her parents. She was fostered to an elderly couple who thought girls should not have as much personality and free will as she did. She received the hardest chores to do, and only escaped beatings because she could tell when they were going to happen and managed to run away brfore her foster-parents could find her. When she was 15, she was Searched, stood at a Hatching, and Impressed blue Cohath. She finished her Weyrlingship at Telgar Weyr, and that was here she spent her dragon's first three years. When she heard of Arolos, she and Cohath requested to be transferred there, mainly to escape Kintai's foster-parents, but also to gain more experience and help the semi-new Weyr. She now lives at Arolos, where she tries her hardest to forget her past, and live in a brighter present.
Information about Kintai's pets
Pet Name: Sarge
Pet Type: Green Wher
Appearance: Sarge is a forest green wher with muscles. Yes, the girl's got a load of muscles. Sarge always looks like she's scowling at you, but that's just the way her face is arranged. One eyeridge is higher than the other, making it look like they're cocked. Of course, that's impossible... right?
Personality: Sarge is very ferocious, especially when it comes to protecting her pet. NO ONE is to ever touch hers, especially other female whers. Sarge is very particular about what other whers are doing around her, especially Sunny.
Information about Kintai's dragon
Dragon Name: Cohath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Cohath's hide changes colors with the sun. At times, he is cobalt, others Prussian, and yet others indigo or navy. He is of medium build, with a snappy tail (which he flicks when upset), strong legs, and a supple neck. Most often his eyes are whirling with a joke his rider just made, but, if anyone gets upset, they slow down with worry until his rider assures him they are alright.
Personality: Cohath is extremely social. He will talk to anyone, be they dragon, human, fire-lizard, or wher. He enjoys making jokes as much as his rider does, but sometimes they are hard to understand. He tries to appear nonchalant around greens, but sometimes there's one or two that he will act a fool around, which is his way of flirting.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: Cohath is willing to help, but sometimes he helps the wrong things, which usually makes things worse.
