Name Pronounced: Mer-ria
Appearance: Bouncy dirty blonde ringlets fall to her shoulders, they are a little scruffy but that's because she's always been in the south. She has a round face and dark blue eyes which are normally twinkling with amusement, as if she has found something funny but won't tell you what. Her mouth normally curves into a half smile, if not a full one, and her nose is small and her ears slightly larger than she would like.
Personality: A small bundle of energy, Meria is the type of girl that is always on the go. She finds the world an enjoyable place to be. At 13 she is still rather innocent and na´ve about a lot of things, though don't tell her to her face. She will tell you that she is mature and can make sense of everything. Fun-loving and carefree she likes to look at the brighter side of life, the good in people and in any situation. Don't think she can't be realistic though, she can; and she will be brought down to earth with a thud at various points during her life. She will take some time to recover but when she does she's soon back to her usual bouncy self.
History: Born to farmers on a small cothold near Arolos Hold, Meria was one of many children. There are roughly seven children in the family, as her mother was pregnant when she left and most likely is again. She was surrounded by a loving extended family as well. No one would say the house was quiet at all, it was loud and full of fun.
Information about Meria's dragon
Dragon Name: Neppinith
Age: 2 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: This green is towards the smaller end of the normal green scale, but has somewhat large feet for all her lack of length. It does make her seem a little unbalanced while on the ground, but of course dragons are meant to fly so it doesn't matter. In shade, if you were to picture a large vegetable patch with different shades of green dotted about you would be pretty close to this little hatching's unusual hide markings. She's quite slender and will be able to dodge away from close brushes with Thread quite easily, although not always successfully. Her headknobs will appear to be rather more pointed than is usual, and her whole physical being will be rather expressive of her emotions and thoughts.
Personality: Well here's a cheerful little dragon and no mistake! Happy and easy-going, Neppinith will love to be the centre of attention and gives little thought to the consequences that it might bring. Concerned primarily with pleasure and making sure she enjoys herself, she'll be appalled when her actions bring trouble down onto her head. She really doesn't stop to think about what danger or mischief she's setting herself up for. But it's this carefree characteristic that will make her a clever little fighter in the air, her abilities will be focused on the task in hand - if her lifemate is able to direct her attention in the proper direction! She'll be friendly, happy to talk anyone's ear off if they'll listen, but remind her of her duty and she'll settle down to a more serious demeanour. After all, when it's time to fight it doesn't really matter what size you are, you still have your job to do.
