Name Pronounced: ma nor (man or)
Appearance: M'nor is about 5’7” tall and he weighs about 130 pounds. His body is very lean, from years of hard work and the famine, but his muscles are still well defined. He has light brown hair that falls in soft waves to his chin. His eyes are also of a light brown color that matches that of his hair, but they also contain flecks of a lime green color. His skin is tanned in color, with a light splattering of freckles across his nose. He has the look of someone who worked in the sun alot in his younger years, though the famine has given him a slimmer look causing a slightly 'under weight' appearance to him which is more pronounced then it is in most of the other riders.
Personality: When M'nor left Arolos, he was a brooding and silent man. Once a happy man his demeanor was shattered when his lifemate suffered a wing scoring during threadfall. It was not the scoring it’s self that got him though, it was their day long trek back to the Weyr and the lack of anyone coming after them. Feeling bitter and angry over it, he took the ultimate step and applied for a transfer from Arolos thinking that this would solve his feelings.
History: Daughter: Aceor, 26 (8.02.02.01), Rider to green Qavozith
Information about M'nor (Manor)'s pets
Pet Name: Cree
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Rather large for a green firelizard, Cree easily equals the size of most of her larger color mates falling on the high end for most of them. Her hide seems to have a base of a dark hunter green that has: sea green and grass green swirled though it in just enough places and just the right amounts to be noticeable. The only flaws her hide holds are a few tiny scars across her body from where she tried to protect her pet from the 'bad men'.
Personality: Unusually calm for a green, Cree can often be found on M'nor's shoulder, or in the kitchens seeing what she can beg from unsuspecting people. She is slightly distrustful of anything that resembles the 'bad men' who hurt her pet, and will often hiss at them to make them leave or even flick *between* if that doesn’t work to avoid being around these people.
Second Pet Name: Bad Icky
Pet Type: Green Wher
Appearance: She isn’t a very large thing yet, but that is rather typical of a pure Callamere after all to be smaller then her wild counters. She is the only one of the group not plagued by past worries of Ista, or scars. She is only a whelp just now, but her hide is a rather interesting colouring actually like something one might find in a swamp it’s some odd blending of green and brown, ok so maybe it’s more nasty or disgusting then interesting just don’t tell her that. Hatched: 8.15.07.21
Personality: As could be expected from a whelp and a green she is an emotional little thing. She doesn’t care who you are or what you want her policy is to attack first and ask questions later. She has already tried more then once to make a snack of Cree, but the much older green has easily throttled all her attempts. She loves her human dearly, but that doesn’t mean she will listen to him at all times. A bit of force behind anything though and she snaps to it. She likes to romp around and have fun and amazingly enough she has no problems playing with Terinth or if she isn’t trying to make a snack of the ‘Lizard, Cree. Other firelizards she has come across though have all been up for grabs for a snack and of other dragons she hasn’t found a one yet she will be near. She doesn’t mind the other whers too much, but if they get to close to her human or Cree she will snap at them, her ‘Nor’ is hers and the ‘Ree’ is only allowed to be /her/ snack.
Third Pet Name: Snack
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: In truth Bad Icky wasn’t far off in naming him ‘Snack’ as she did. His hide is an odd sort of silver like blue that makes him resemble one of the silver fish from the lake. He isn’t too large yet, but he is growing and fast he will probably be at least average if not large once he is full grown but with his mother and father being a Callamere gold and bronze that’s truly to be expected. The poor boy already has himself his first ‘battle wound’ it’s on the very edge of his right wing there is a place in between his second and third fingers that is sort of ragged looking where Bad Icky managed to catch him. He learned well from that though and it good to avoid the green when he is awake. Hatched: 08.17.03.04
Personality: A blue though and though this boy is as ‘lazy’ as can be and just as harper like too. He loves to cuddle with Cree and offer her and any other greens or golds he finds pretty ‘words’ and offers of as many shinnies and fish he can find for them. At least when he is awake. He is still young as yet so he spends most of his time sleeping which doesn’t help his ‘lazy’ appearance. Even when he is awake though he would much prefer to sprawl over his pet’s shoulders then to do something like /move/ the only exception is to shift enough to give Cree the room she need’s on M’nor’s left shoulder to watch his bad side for him.
Information about M'nor (Manor)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Terinth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: She is on the larger side, but still has that 'tiny green' look about her. Her hide, once bright almost neon green in color has dimmed some to more of a lime green from the effects of the famine. Her over all proportions are all good with nothing really appearing to large or small for her, and from a distance she even appears to have a rather lithe look to her.
Personality: Terinth is a rather fun loving dragon, and while her fun spirit is not quite what it was before her rider was attacked she can still often be found sporting with younger dragons or M’nor in the water. She can sometimes get a little testy as most green’s do but that’s only before she rises and is usually no more then a slight temper. She dislikes the whole stuffy dragon approach, and proves that by being a slightly immature dragon that just never seems to have gotten over being a Weyrling.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Terinth has speed, agility and power; that would make her a good addition to any wing. Unfortunately, she has a slight problem with betweening, being anywhere from a millimeter to a meter off when she comes back from the fridge blackness. Though in her favor more often then not it is only a few millimeters so this is hardly noticeable, but on the occasion that she is off by those meters it can cause problems for her and others.
