Name Pronounced: stuh - VAHR
Appearance: St'var stands about six feet tall, and he is well-muscled. He has wavy, mahogany brown hair and keeps it long enough to put into a top-knot when it's time to wear a riding helmet. He has grayish eyes and tan skin. He is marked here and there with various scars, as close calls with Thread, flame, and cinder seem to be his lot in life.
Personality: St'var swears by kindness and compassion. He rarely ever speaks in anger. He is an easy-going, happy-go-lucky guy. With a life that has been full of tragedy, he tries his best to find the silver lining on every cloud. He goes out of his way to cheer his friends and family, and he will often put their needs above his own. He cherishes every moment and enjoys every delight, because tomorrow is not guaranteed.
History: Stegvar was last born of five brothers to a brownrider, F'rian, and Journeywoman Harper Melian of Ista Weyr. His father was strict and insisted that each of his sons stand for at least one clutch before they seek a craft. This was no hardship for Stegvar, as he loved dragons more than any other craft. However, Stegvar was only 10 when his father was lost to Thread, and it hit him very hard. He felt he had missed out on spending time with his father, missed out on making him proud, as he was too young yet to Stand or to apprentice.
Information about St'var's dragon
Dragon Name: Silmarth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Silmarth is large for a brown - a bit of a hulking beauty. He is remarkably handsome, still perfectly proportioned despite his large size. He is a dark chestnut color. He has a badge of darker klah brown on his chest almost as though he has a tuft of brown chest hair.
Personality: While Silmarth's appearance calls to mind the dignity of a prize Callamere draft stallion, his demeanor is that of a lovable, goofy puppy. He never seemed to get acquainted with how large he is, and this makes him a touch clumsy. He is such a sweetheart, it is hard to be mad at him when he knocks something over. He lives in the moment even more than most dragons. If he does not find what he wants where he is, he will leave and go find it somewhere else.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Silmarth is very strong and has outstanding stamina. But he has no agility and no finesse.
