Name Pronounced: Wuh-Zlee
Appearance: Wazley's not exactly what anyone could describe as a formidable sight. He's small, and skinny - his limbs seeming almost stick-like - and easily intimidated. Certainly he tries hard in lessons, but in any physical lessons he falls behind quickly, slow and clumsy. His brown hair has a ruffled look about it, his brown eyes seem permanantly watery, and he seems almost about to cry or throw up if shouted at or bullied Crueller boys have been known to suggest that he's more likely to be eaten by a dragon than Impress one.
Personality: Wazley doesn't just believe in rankers, but Believes in them. He Believes in them with an intensity that's almost embarrassing to watch. It could be compared to the way a child believes in heroes and villains, all blacks and whites with no grey in sight.
History: Wazley's father was a bluerider, his mother a drudge. She died of a fever while his father was too busy with rider duties to visit much. While not close to either of his parents, he had three older brothers - the youngest five years older than him. They grew up in the Creche together, and Wazley was protected from larger and crueller children by the brothers he adored. All three of them went on to Impress - two to blue, one to green. Their father seemed to grow closer to them once they'd Impressed and graduated perhaps feeling more able to relate to them.
Information about W'zley's dragon
Dragon Name: Paschalanth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Paschalanth is small for his colour. His hide will one day be a vibrant blue matching that when the moons are visible in the sky during the day, if he makes it through the state he is in now. Currently his hide is paler, much paler, making him look sick, and making whoever impresses him just want to care for him.
Personality: Personality wise he goes through phases, waxing and waning in confidence, not just in himself, but his abilities. He'll need a rider that believes in something to help guide him when he's feeling confused or down. Sometimes he just plain won't understand things, he'll need a patient rider who can explain them to him over and again until he really does understand.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Paschalanth is just awesome at obeying orders. Independent thinking, not so good. That scares him, so he doesn't even want to try.
