Name Pronounced: MLEX
Appearance: There are people that many underestimate and people that many overestimate. M'lex won't fit into either category since his height and build are undeniably average. As in not skinny, nor broad, but does have some chiselled musculature present under that peach-toned skin. His face, with the blue-green eyes, strong jaw and slight facial fuzzy, will stand out far more than anything else. Especially consider how well highlighted it is amid his brown hair. He keeps said hair more on the shorter side of medium, which lets the strands curl ever-so-slightly, staying almost shy of what'd be considered curly.
Personality: People often question M'lex about where his self-preservation might've last been seen. After Impressing bronze, M'lex decided that he must act like what everyone (at Igen) expected from bronzeriders. Which meant recklessly charging into every situation and, once committed, he'll never hesitate. There'll be some arrogance in how confident he'll seem about being able to handle any problem. Nor does he seem to know what relaxation is, or when he should take a break. If you challenge him about anything he'll show his snippy side...unless you're actual family.
History: Aerxen & Vemillea weren't that well off, as such they never dared have more than one child. They somewhat spoiled Millex but not enough that he couldn't make friends among the other Lemos Hold children. He was rather active, rushing from one task and onto another without any pause. He made himself quite memorable to compensate for the fact that his parents weren't well off. In some ways he felt embarrassed about their status but cared enough that he eagerly followed in his father's footsteps. Apprenticing into the Smithcraft once he'd turned 12. Millex was 15 when he came across a friend's younger sister, crying. From her he found out said friend ran off with her diary.
Information about M'lex's dragon
Dragon Name: Zereath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Small and delicate, Zereath will seem somewhat undersized around other 8th Pass bronze. Unlike them he can twist around and will seem so flexable that most would call him double-jointed. His reddish-bronze hide won't even gleam brighter than other bronzes. Some have said dried blood must've mixed into the molten bronze until it solidified into this rich, dark hide. There are more fresh looking reddish-bronze smudges marking his wingspan's leading edge. Another smudge runs over the topside of his tail, going from midway all the way to his tail tip. He is missing one toe where he's been previously Threadscored.
Personality: Being small won't stop him from acting bigger than he is. Sure it means he's running more on enthusiasm than actually stamina but he can't stand remaining still. If he doesn't moves, if he's somewhere for long periods without anything to distract him, it'll bore him into creating his own activity. Zereath can be pretty demanding when bored like that too and will regret that it happened later once he's settled down. He just wants something that'll keep him on his toes.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: Zereath is an unusual bronze in that he seems more built smooth, twisty turning. The awareness of what's going around him lets him react quickly too, which makes him seem even faster than he actually is. So it's more his stamina that is lacking.
