Name Pronounced: ekzo-meer
Appearance: Average height and build for a weyrbrat his age, though maybe a bit on the skinnier and paler side of native southerners. He has particularly well formed legs from running to the Headwoman and Candidate Master and giving them the news. His hair is brown and thin so he keeps it short, trying to hide the widow peaks that are already forming. He has round, brown eyes.
Personality: The rules are the rules and that's that. If everyone follows the rules then everyone will be safe and happy. Unhappiness comes from disobedience and those that disrupt the peace. Therefore, Xoromir has taken it upon himself to always be vigilant and ready to alert the proper authority figures. He dreams of a better world, where we can all live in peace without the fear of anything at all.
History: Up until his tenth turn Xoromir lived a very typical and boring life for a weyrbrat. He was scrawny and not too good in a fight but he wanted to be accepted so he followed the bigger kids around. One day they found an abandoned fire-lizard nest and thought it would be funny to find out if they would really eat each other if they had nothing else so they covered the next with a bucket when the eggs started to hatch.
Information about Xo'mir's pets
Pet Name: Stitches
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Upon being born, his hatchmates set upon him in a ravenous hunger. Luckily Xoromir was able to snatch him up out of harm's way, but the flit's pale tan hide will be forever marred with dozens of scratches that look like he has stitches all over his body. His right eye was forever damaged and is always red. He curves his head and cocks his head when looking directly at something
Personality: Utterly loyal and protective of Xoromir, Stitches lives for the boy who saved him from being cannibalized by his brothers and sisters. As a result, he has an extreme mistrust of other flits and, except for golds whom he'll give a respectful distance, will become aggressive towards them if they get too close. He is perfectly confident with other people though. That said, he will defend Xoromir if anyone tries to harm him.
Information about Xo'mir's dragon
Dragon Name: Feegith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Midsummer Dreamers (May 2020)
Appearance: Gangly and lean, Feegith's stormy blue hide has an interesting feature, looking suspiciously as though he has been painted all over in spirals the same colour as woad - that unusual dye that comes from the same yellow-flowered plant as used by the tailor. Of course on closer inspection you can see they're not painted on, nor are they actually spirals, being instead a whirling mixture of streaks.
Personality: A born storyteller, Feegith will plague his rider with a never ending tirade of grand stories and will nudge his rider to remind him of the details as he forgets them. Fascinated by the Harpers, Feegith adores the old ballads and their sweeping stories of heroes of days old. He'll even try to sing along but unfortunately he is doomed to be horribly out of tune, especially when he tries to mimic higher pitches which will risk rupturing more than one innocent eardrum. He will have a tendency to create and quote the most terrible poetry of which he will be extremely proud.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Egg - The Draped in Tartan Egg: Sure to both entice and horrify any of the resident tailors, this egg is just too garish to pass by. Unless Razelth has managed to get her claws on some fabric to keep this egg tucked up and warm, then surely, some prankster has taken it upon themselves to paint this egg a medley of interwoven stripes.
