Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: V'ron isn't quite handsome. Nor is he ugly. He's somewhere in between. His spot on the scale depends highly on how much sleep he got. His skin is tanned, but it easily turns pale with fatigue. His eyes are simply brown. They look a lot better when he's in an extreme emotion. They don't change in shade, just noticability. His hair, a light, sun streaked brown, is rather messy by nature, and falls to his eyebrows. Sometimes, with generous applications of water, he is able to tame it. Sometimes it just sticks up. He stand a perfectly ordinary 5'10 in height.
Personality: V'ron is eternally optimistic. He can be rather annoying because of it. Sometimes he also seems a bit less intelligent then he should. His extreme naivety is often remarked upon. It almost seems as if he doesn't notice the bad things going on in the world around him. It really doesn't help those impressions that he does not, just chooses to push those facts from his mind. He'd prefer not to think of the bad. He's rather flirtatious with men, but tends to be more shy around women. He prefers male partners.
History: V'ron had the misfortune (in his opinion at least) to be born in the north. It didn't really help any that it was Ista Weyr, which was nowhere near as bad as Fort would have been. He wanted Southern as soon as he was old enough to start standing as a candidate. Several times, he very nearly convinced himself to go South. But it was harder then he thought to get others to agree to sending a very poor candidate South just because he wished it.
Information about V'ron's dragon
Dragon Name: Verreteth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Verreteth is thoroughly average in size. She is a pretty dragon, as all are really. She's not stunning,though, not like some of her other green sisters. She's a light leafy green on her back. Her stomach is several shades darker. While she's fairly proud of this, it's caused quite a few stares to be sent her way. Or maybe it was the almost florescent green spot on her rump the size of her rider's head. That was a real eye catcher compared to her almost pastel coloring.
Personality: Verreteth is as eternally optimistic as her rider. She's constantly cheerful, and more than a little pushy. She loves to gossip, particularly with other greens. She'll flirt with anything that moves, be it male or female, dragon or no. However, she doesn't fly often, and takes little interest in mating. To Verreteth the world is meant to cuddle with her. She loves nothing more than curling up with another dragon, or even someone smaller. When she was a weyrling, V'ron rarely got to sleep in his own cot.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Verreteth is flighty; plain and simple. But she's also fast and quite skillful in flight.
