Character type: Weyrling
Appearance: Tyelkormo has sparkling hazel eyes and short, floppy, dark brown hair that gets in his eyes whenever he doesn't keep it cut short. His skin is tanned a light brown color, though in the North, he would have fairer skin. A few freckles dot the bridge of his nose. As he is in the middle of his growth spurt, Tyelkormo is tall and gangly, with somewhat overlarge hands and feet. He is also of a decidedly slender build.
Personality: Tyelkormo is quite possibly one of the friendliest, most easygoing people this side of the Continent. He has an unmistakable zest for life, and he has the ability to make friends with seemingly anyone, from the surliest guard to the shyest drudge. That being said, he's no pushover; he will cling firmly to what he believes is right. He is talkative, though not overly so, and he makes just as much trouble as the next boy; no more, no less. He is a bit clumsy and accident prone, though that's more because he's in the middle of his growth spurt than anything else. He accepts his lot in life, and its ups and downs, with an ever- present smile, though he can get a bit overexcited about certain things, like Hatchings and cookies. He makes a loal friend, to those who earn his respect.
History: Tyelkormo grew up the son of a female greenrider, the product of a flight, at Benden Weyr. He grew up in the creche, like any other Weyrbrat, but his mother visited him whenever she could, and every nameday, she brought him a gift. When Tyelkormo turned ten, however, his mother transferred to Arolos, and took her son with her. Two years later, she encouraged him to leave the Creche and become a Harper apprentice, though he insisted he wanted to stay at the Weyr. A year into his apprenticeship, however, he was helping to wash a rider's dragon when the dragon spoke to him and he (rather impulsively) decided to start Standing. His mother's dragon had spoken to him before, true, but that was different than a relative stranger's dragon.. Though it's been almost 3 Turns of clutches and Hatchings now, Tyelkormo refuses to give up hope; there HAS to be a dragonet out there for him. Even if it's not hatched yet.
Information about T'elko's pets
Pet Name: Dart
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: This boy is a slim and sleek thing who looks more like his sire. His pure black furry body actually looks oddly thin due to the shorter fur that covers him, but he is quite healthy. He’s already showing promise of great height with his oddly leggy look, he’ll probably end up at a good 24 inches when grown, but right now he’s a bit awkward. Still one look in those nearly black looking eyes and you just know this is one boy who would always be happy to see you.
Personality: He really doesn’t care who you are, he is just always happy to see you, so happy in fact his tail wagging makes his whole butt move. He’ll never make any sort of guard dog, in fact he’ll probably never attack another person or animal ever, but he is a sweet and loving dog. He’s one of those who will be great with kids because he will get up and walk away if their pulling on his legs/ears/tail becomes too much rather than lashing out. He’ll always be up for sprawling on someone and licking in the face is nearly a given if you let him get close enough. The only real problem with any of this being: it is hard to teach him manners because he would rather go say hi to everyone coming and going than walk calmly on a leash.
Second Pet Name: Rhyme
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Egg - This egg looks like a wild sunset predominantly coloured in orange and turquoise colours but with whisps of pink and purple 'smoke' covering the egg.
Personality: Rhyme is an adorable bundle of positive energy with no concept of personal space or moderation. She chatters constantly and to everyone, with occasional flashes of OMG melodrama. She is full of wild plans and dreams, and cares about her friends to the point of fierce - sometimes scary - overprotectiveness. Rhyme loves flying around outside, especially during bad weather, and she often finds high areas to perch on. One of her other favourite things is food. Even after she is grown, her huge appetite remains though she apparently burns it off in bursts of hyper, sometimes destructive energy. Sweet syrups and jellies especially are not safe from this little girl and she will try to inhale any that are around.

Dragon Name: Merreath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Midsummer Dreamers (May 2020)
Appearance: A lovely shade of shimmery green like looking into the bottom of a still lake, Merreath doesn't care if perhaps she's a bit rounder than the rest of her friends - a trait she will always carry. It'll be obvious she'll be as healthy as can be, just a little bit rounder. She might seem a bit short all over, shorter in the leg and not as long in the neck or tail but for her, the proportion is just right and she doesn't look mismatched or out of place.
Personality: There is an endlessly cheeriness to Merreath and she just wants to make the world a better place, she's sure she can! When all hope seems otherwise lost, Merreath will be the one piping up - she might not be able to take it all away, but she is sure she can make it a bit better somehow. Bold to a fault, Merreath can be prone to rushing off into situations without stopping to think them through, something her Rider will have to watch for. She doesn't mean any harm of course, she just wants to help.
