Name Pronounced: Tee-ahl-iss
Appearance: Tialys is fraternal twin to Rhyann, and as such shared her striking high cheekbones, lush lips, and smooth, naturally tanned flesh. Her curls, however, are of a dark blond-brown shading that aptly compliments her complexion. She has striking hazel eyes of pleasant shape that she decorates with her sister's kohl every so often. This is an unusual practice for her, however, as her eyes possess a pleasant and natural darker skin shading that offsets the blue well. She is thin and toned somewhat, but far from the model of fitness she probably should be. A naturally high metabolism and the rigors of dragon riding keep her shape, which is nothing to really preen over in her estimation.
Personality: Tialys is ever-so-slightly sarcastic, but not enough so to start a fight. When she does pull it out, sarcasm functions as her armor, and she uses it to shut down around people that make her feel unhappily self-conscious or force them to shut down on her. This is all the better to avoid fights, of course. If she's pressed, she will stand up for herself as she is by no means a push-over. She simply does not subscribe to regular verbal battles if she can avoid them. For the most part, though, Tia is a genuinely likable sort of sweet girl. She has no trouble at all getting to know new people and make friends. Close friends are rare, of course, as is the case with most people, but she does enjoy being able to spot a friendly face in any room.
History: The result of a brief affair between a bronzerider and greenrider, Tialys and her twin were raised together in the creche at Ista Weyr. They were happy children; they got into the appropriate amount of childhood mischief, made the appropriate amount of friends...and waited for the day that they would find the lifemates destined for them. Tia believed her sister's quiet, certain assertion that they would be dragonriders-why would she doubt Rhyann?
Sister: Rhyann, rider of green Medrinth at Arolos Weyr (fraternal twin)
Friend: Ryeck, Journeyman Smith at Arolos Weyr
( 8.16.12.06 ) Tialys and Rhyann transfer to Arolos from Ista.
( 8.17.01.04 ) The fire lizard egg she recieves from Rhyann as a Turn's End gift hatches into brown Timmer.
( 8.17.01.24 ) Tia picks up a flit egg from Kee'tae's Sporia as a belated Turn's End gift to Rhyann.
Information about Tialys's pets
Pet Name: Timmer
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: A variety of shades cover this brown hatchling, from the dark earth browns, to reddish terracotta, even honey browns adorn him in dappled splotches accentuated by the same red brown as his wings. His wings are lined in a deep red brown, a rust color like that of dried blood. No matter how often one cleans him however, those red brown markings won't rub off. One could stare for candle marks at this lizard, just making shapes out of his hide. He is a well rounded fire lizard, looking too plump, no matter how much he eats. Even so, this does not stop him when he takes to the air for a task- large he may be, he is still fast.
Personality: He is a strange fire lizard, far too serious, even as a young one. It is as if he jumped past his hatchling stage and came into the world a grown adult-at least emotionally. He is watchful of his and Tialys' belongings. He is a pessimistic fire lizard, always thinking that there is worse to come.
Information about Tialys's dragon
Dragon Name: Rohkketh
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Rohkketh is a muscular blue of even proportions. He has a strong, gracefully arched neck, well-muscled flanks, and heavy muscles over a medium frame. The few things that seem exaggerated on him are his tail, which is longer than usual, and his larger neck ridges. Compared to runner types, he might be described as a light draft. He is not, however, what many people would consider "brown-sized". Indeed, stocky, short, lean and muscular all describe him and, remarkably, pull together to outline a fine looking dragon. He is a pitch dark blue, something not seen often in dragons, which is spread uniformly over his hide and accented by random flashed of brilliant true blue that seems to be a sheen over his hide rather than patches. Whether it is a true sheen or a play of the light depends on whom you ask.
Personality: This blue is as quietly determined as a blue can be, which is where his rider gains that particular trait. He's not as regal as a bronze and not as neutral as a brown, but is thankfully less prone to dramatics than many of his color. He perseveres fairly well through any problems thrown his way and somehow manages to infuse a great sense of fun into anything he sets out to do, whether it be flying, swimming, or fighting. To his credit, he's a good influence of those who know him well, notably so with Tialys.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Rohkketh is not by any means a swift or agile blue. His strong musculature keeps him heavier than most of his color, but aids him in helping the larger dragons in mid-air Thread rescues.
