Name Pronounced: R - kyo, as in Japanese
Appearance: Rikyiko is short for his age, something that he prefers not to talk about; he is about five feet and two inches tall. He has black hair, straight and short, and dark brown eyes. He complexion is light, but tanned by the sun. His tan covers the most part of his body. He is of a muscular build, but is lean. He is not particularly attractive, but neither is he ugly. If he were taller than the girls his age, they might be more interested in him. Rikyiko likes to wear light clothing made for wear in hotter regions, though he will not hesitate to dress more warmly if the temperature gets too cold. He likes darker colors, but most of his clothing ends up being faded by the sun.
Personality: Rikyiko is very sensitive about his height. Though he will not bring it up, if someone else mentions it, he becomes upset and sometimes hostile about the subject. He is very friendly, however, and will talk to most anyone if spoken to first or if intrigued by their personality. He is not overly extroverted, however, and will not always speak up if in a room full of strangers. He enjoys spending time outside and really dislikes being cooped up.
History: Birthingday: 7i.97.08.28
Information about R'kyo's dragon
Dragon Name: Reyhoth
Wing (Weyrling Group):
Appearance: Hatched 126.96.36.199 - Reyhoth is a very slender, muscular brown. Even when he's sitting still, his body moves as if he were flying and his markings make him look as quick as he is. He's a light brown, with darker markings down his back and sides as if it was raining dye and he was flying through it. Incredibly, there are four markings - two on each side - that look suspiciously straight and narrow. If Pern had Nascar, these would be racing stripes.
Personality: Even straight from his egg, this brown's first love was already to fly. He's an adventurous sort, and it would almost seem that his dreams while inside his egg were of nothing but soaring above in the blue skies. When he hatched, he found himself quite flustered that he could not yet fly in truth. Where would he use that flying practice? Well, the browns second love in life is hunting. It doesn't matter whether he's hungry or not, or even whether what he's chasing is edible. The joy is in chasing his prey down and cornering it. The faster it is the better. There's no challenge in catching something slow.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Reyhoth is extremely quick and agile for his color. He lacks some of the endurance of a brown, and he is very possessive and jealous - especially of his rider and his offspring.
