Name Pronounced: m-NAHM
Appearance: M'nom is always sharply dressed. He keeps his uniforms, formal attire, and even his plain clothes meticulously cleaned and pressed. He dresses sharply in and out of uniform, taking great pride in his appearance. He has no fewer than one outfit for every occasion, from the most formal of dinners to the roughest of work days, and he spares not one whit of attention to each of them. He always keeps clean shaven, and though his hair is light, his shaving is not unwarranted.
Personality: M'nom takes everything seriously. This is not to say he is averse to having fun - he just takes that seriously, too. Whatever he does, he gives 100% of his attention and effort, perhaps even so much that he tends to miss the other things, even the obvious other things, going on around him. From an early age, he had a strong desire to protect, especially those dear to him, but also anyone who was weak.
History: Omney was born and raised at Callamere Hold. From an early age, he began to take pride in the unique work they did, but before long, his parents also began to instill in him a sense of appreciation for the hard work that each of the holds, halls, and weyrs did. It was all different, but different was not bad. Everyone had to work together to make the world a better place. And from then on, he decided he would make it his business - the thing he did better than anything else he could do - to protect the weak from whatever would seek to steal or destroy the good works they did.
Information about M'nom's dragon
Dragon Name: Shepheth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: Shepheth is a large green, with powerful muscles that aren’t always obvious considering her lean build. While Shepheth’s head, back, and thick tail are a dark shade of green, her belly and legs are a much lighter shade, which makes her a striking looking dragon.
Personality: Shepheth’s excitement for life and energy make her a playful companion for M'nom, but not so much for anyone else. She is extremely protective of her rider and will not hesitate to rush to his defense if she thinks it is necessary, even when it is not. And while dragons might not hurt people, she won’t have any problems looking and acting threatening if it gets rid of any potential threat. It will take her a long time to learn to trust anyone other than her rider and should her rider ever wish to take a mate, she will need to take the relationship very slowly for Shepheth’s sake.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Shepheth has high stamina, but her bull-headedness leave her prone to hurting herself without proper oversight. She is highly protective, but slow to trust.
