Name Pronounced: ruh-zon
Appearance: Dark hair, dark blue eyes, medium build, long face. He keeps his hair cropped short, but it is quite unruly and will not lay straight. It would if he let it grow long, but he thinks he looks ridiculous with long hair. His medium build hides the muscles of being a dragonrider for so many years - there is no fat on him.
Personality: R'zzon is probably one of the most laid back and easy-going riders in Arolos. Yet, in spite of, or maybe because of this, he is also a very good threadfighter. He has a very good rapport with his dragon - Panagath, and the two move in the air as if they were one.
History: Lanerizzon was born the middle son to a wealthy jewelcrafter. Early on he realized that he didn't want to go into the Jewelcraft, but he didn't really know what he wanted to do. At one point he was going to go into the Smithcraft, at another, Harpercraft. It was hard to make a choice. Luckily, he didn't have to - he was Searched by Arolos Weyr in Turn 07, when he was 13. And, he Impressed Panagoth immediately.
Information about R'zzon's dragon
Dragon Name: Panagath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Very dark midnight blue, with lighter shadings on his wingtips, ridges, and tail. He used to be one of the smallest blues at Arolos - that is, until the TTs showed up - tending to be closer to the size of a green. His wings are slim, but long, giving him better maneuverability in the air. His tail tends to the longer side also, being almost as long as his body. He and R'zzon use this to their advantage, managing incredible feats of dexterity while Threadfighting, and during Gather Games.
Personality: Panagath is something of a complainer. He'll complain about having to go out and risk his life during Threadfall, but then applies himself to the task with gusto. He also has a quirky sense of humor. However, even after 19 Turns he's shy with the ladies. He will chase greens, and due to his small size can usually catch them - if he would follow through. But he will suddenly get all shy and such, and not catch her. This doesn't happen all the time, of course, but it's more often the norm than not.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Quick, very good at Threadfighting, has a long sustainable flame. However, he tends to always be wanting something to eat, stating that he needs to keep his strength up. After all, there may some day be another food shortage!
