Name Pronounced: (Tuh-BEE-an)
Appearance: T'bian's looks border along rugged. His nose is characteristic to the rest of his family in being slightly large and very straight.
Personality: T'bian is a traditionalist no matter how you put it. He doesn't think women should ride fighting dragons and tolerates them merely because his two sisters Impressed dragons.
Information about T'bian's pets
Pet Name: Zeek
Pet Type: Brown Wher
Appearance: Zeek is possibly the ugliest thing to ever walk Pern. His dark, chocolate, brown hide is the only nice feature of this wher. His features seem oddly squashed, and you can plainly tell that he isn't even considered a beauty of his own kind. His legs are strong and suffused with muscle, however, making him a good participant in green whers' mating runs.
Personality: Zeek is as antisocial as his owner and doesn't talk to anyone besides T'bian. He enjoys the company of Zuluth, oddly enough, though the dragon has never shown any particular love for the wher, he WILL speak to him.
Second Pet Name: Shang
Pet Type: Blue Wher
Appearance: Shang is strong and well-built. He is a large blue and T'bian thinks that, when fully grown, Shang might be as large as Zeek. Unlike Zeek, Shang is a moderately handsome wher, as whers go, anyway. His face is abnormally smooth but nowhere near a dragon or flit's face.
Personality: Shang is the traditional blue. He obeys T'bian without question and follows orders as they are given. He fits in well with Zuluth in that he likes rules and order to dominate his life. One would almost think that Shang had no personality since he does nothing on his own. But underneath his staunch exterior there is curiosity and intelligence in abundance.
Information about T'bian's dragon
Dragon Name: Zuluth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Zuluth is an average sized bronze. He seems to be all muscle, and eats and exercises constantly to keep it that way. His hide is a deep bronze color that tapers off, and his feet are *almost* mustard colored.
Personality: Zuluth is without a doubt the most uptight dragon in the Weyr, possibly in all of Pern. Even when he was just a Hatchling everything was about rules, and the word fun doesn't exist in his vocabulary. Zuluth is very hard to get along with, and is constantly stressing about the smallest things and trying to get everything to run like clockwork. The Bronze is unhappy all the time, and just can't figure out why others aren't always working like him.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Like all bronzes, Zuluth has more stamina and less agility than the other colors.
