Xy'lan (Xyetlan or Lan)
Name Pronounced: zai lan (zai et lan or Lan)
Appearance: She isn’t overly tall for her age, she has in fact always been on the shorter side, and she isn’t very weighty either another thing that has just always been. Beyond that though she actually looks a lot like her daddy in some respects. Like the straight nose that points outwards, the high cheekbones, or the raven black hair that currently sits about midway down her shoulder blades and is usually either pulled back in a thong or two or braided. Her skin holds a tan to it from where she likes to spend as much time outside as she can helping her mama and papa with their dragons and things of that sort. Her eyes are the main thing that differ between her and Kl’ryn the shade of blue his hold hers just can’t match, they are a more dull and darker blue that nearly borders on brown in fact.
Personality: Xy’lan has grown much over the turns and since entering candidacy and now being a weyrling. She has spent many turns on her fear of heights and while it took some time she is over it enough now to be ok. She will still never be one to spend her time say on the Weyr Rim or sitting on the ledge of her weyr, but strapped to a dragon’s back or from a bit back on the ledge she can enjoy and does.
History: Mother: Xyinet, Greenrider, Arolos Weyr
Information about Xy'lan (Xyetlan or Lan)'s pets
Pet Name: Zababuz (Zaba)
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: Zababuz is on the larger side being much closer to his sire in pure size. He is a pure black thing that stands probably a good two feet tall at the shoulder and weights nearly eighty pounds most of it muscle from playing with his human and running around her sir’s weyr, but he does spend plenty of time cooped up so he does still have his share of just fat to him too. His over all build would remind one of a terra German Shepard in truth just not /quite/ as fit looking as some because of the extra couple pounds that aren’t the muscle so many have. Born: 08.17.09.11
Personality: He is and probably always will be a puppy all the way. If he could he would bounce, hop, run, and just generally play all day long. Zababuz has learned how to be calm if he really must and over his two turns has picked up basic manners like: how to walk on a leash and harness; where he can’t go to the bathroom; and that no it isn’t nice to jump on someone just cause he can but that last one he does forget at times because it is his favorite way of greeting people. One thing about him though is that he isn’t a big one for barking, it takes a lot to get him worked up enough to do so and that usually takes him thinking you are threatening his girl or any other member of his ‘pack’. Otherwise just watch that tail because the short fur that covers it and the rest of him makes it sting some if he gets you with it when he is wagging it so much.
Information about Xy'lan (Xyetlan or Lan)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Bandiucth
Age: 7 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Forgotten of Foreth (Off-Screen Hatching)
Appearance: Bandiucth is not at all how she would want to be what with being very much on the larger side for greens already. She is lean and very much a pretty green though with her hide a nice mint green over most of her body except for a few swirles here and there of a slightly dark sort of kelly green. She is sleek and moves better on the ground than is usually expected of dragons even looking oddly graceful at times, going so far in truth as to remind some of the prowl of a feline. (based on Maria from Aristocat)
Personality: This is one little girl that was born a lady and will always be one! She likes to be pretty and wishes she were smaller and more dainty. Why does she have to be so very large? She doesn’t like being dirty and tries to demand baths at least thrice daily from her chosen even going so far as to interrupt her rider even if she is busy when she wants one. She will always think that she should be first to do things because of course Ladies first! And that even applies to her sisters after all she is still the best lady even if any of them are ladies. Though of course she has decided that exceptions can be made for her mama and the other golds.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: TBD
