Position: Weyrleader, Leads the Dragonriders in fighting Threadfall
6’1, tall, well-muscled.
Tanned face, moderately lined/etched already from flying dragons, stress, hard life of a Dragonrider and military leader
Blond/light brown hair, mixed; long and straight, usually held smoothly back in a leather tie
Gray-blue eyes, very piercing sometimes
Pesonality: Courageous, but knows his limits…most of the time. Wants to stay alive as long as possible. Serious and dedicated when it comes to work, but is able to relax when needed. Keeps control of himself in most situations. Very calm. Sometimes he comes off as unemotional and hard, but most know this isn’t really true. Loyal to his Dragonriders, Taric wouldn’t send them to do anything he wouldn’t do himself. He has no weyrmate at the moment but does not lack for company.
History: Leader for the past five years. Chosen when his dragon mated with the senior gold Queen, but is not weyrmate to the Weyrwoman. Was raised at Camden Wyer from birth. His parents were never weyrmates as the mother was from Camden Hold and at birth gave Taric to his father at the Weyr hoping the boy would be Impressed by a dragon when he was older. (At the Hold the mother was looked down upon for having had a child out of marriage… the Holds follow the traditional idea of marriage and family.) She’s worked hard to regain her respect, although she’s not forgotten Taric. Taric was fostered to another woman as well as raised by the Weyr. He lost his father ten years ago during a Threadfall when the father and his dragon were injured and went between.
Color: Male; Dark bronze: several shades blended together; has wide nostrils and as broad nose; eye ridges that begin curved but then slant outward; large horns that curve back.
Personality: Like his rider he is brave, serious, dedicated, but also has a mischievous streak which occasionally tries Taric’s patience Garrth is somewhat restless and enjoys flying when there is no Thread. He has known nothing but fighting Thread his entire life. Although he’s been many places on Idan for specific purposes, Garrth sometimes has vague feelings of wanting to go ‘somewhere else just to go’ and not fly between just to get there.
Fire-lizard: Green (deep like an emerald), male - Jiem
