Name Pronounced: Nel- oh- tay
Appearance: Nelotai's hair is a dark mahogany brown, long and wavy, though she keeps it pulled back most of the time. Her eyes are a light hazel, and her skin is fair, though her coloring has darkened from years spent in the South. She doesn't have any moles or freckles, though when she smiles, a dimple flashes. Her face is long, her features elegant, with long lashes upon her eyelids. Matching her face, Nelotai is tall, though not overly so, with a slender, willowy build.
Personality: Nelotai is outspoken and talkative, with no fear of saying exactly what's on her mind... even if no one wants to hear it. As a result, she can, on occasion, stir up trouble, though she never intends to. By the same token, she questions everything, and tries to get involved in everything she can, and has a tendency to stretch herself too thin. She makes friends easily, though she has difficulty holding a relationship for any length of time. Her brother N'vren means everything to her, and she would do anything for him.
History: Nelotai and Navren were born in Bitra Hold, to a guard father and Journeywoman Harper mother. Their father was the "typical" Bitran, and spent most of the family's money on gambling and other such things, though he *tried* to raise his children better than that. When the twins were 8, their father was killed in a bet gone wrong, and the family became even poorer. When they were 12, their mother sent both of them to the Harper Hall. And it was there that, two years later, Nelotai was Searched. She refused to go anywhere without Navren, however. Fortunately, for her, the rider was a kind one, and they were both taken to Benden Weyr. Less than a sixmonth later, she Impressed blue Mesaroth- and N'vren Impressed blue Evreth.
Information about Nelotai's dragon
Dragon Name: Mesaroth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Mesaroth is large for a blue, with both the size and wingspan to match a small brown. His hide is a rich dark blue, his wings even darker, and slightly mottled, as if patterned. The top of his head matches his wings. A single darker stripe traces down his spine. His wingspan grants him the ability to last through an entire Fall, though just barely.
Personality: Mesaroth is, unfortunately, a bit of a bully. He prefers to be in charge, though he will do it subtly. After all, he is bigger, so by reasoning, he must be better, than his smaller blue brothers and green sisters. He will even try to tell his rider what he thinks she should do, though he's mostly grown out of it. That being said, he is fiercely loyal to his "circle" of friends, and his rider. He has to protect them, after all.
Weyr of Origin: Benden
Abilites and weaknesses: He is a strong flier, and will last all Fall if he needs to. However, he isn't the best at taking orders, and may be slower than other blues.
