Name: Taric

Position: Weyrleader, Leads the Dragonriders in fighting Threadfall

Age: 34

Appearance:
6’1, tall, well-muscled.
Tanned face, moderately lined/etched already from flying dragons, stress, hard life of a Dragonrider and military leader
Rugged features
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.


Dragon:

Name: Garrth

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.

Age: 16

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

Name: Kynthia

Position: Weyrwoman, Female

Age: 30

Appearance:
5’8”, curvy, voluptuous in a comforting way
Long, dark brown, curly hair. Wears pinned up when in the Weyr, and tied back when flying
Well dressed and groomed to set an example, but is subdued and modest in her clothing
Pleasing, well-formed features
Soft green eyes

Personality: Gives most everyone a second chance to prove they are a good person. Nurturing, tries to be there for everyone. Feels everyone’s pain, which sometimes unhealthy for her wellbeing. Fiercely protective of the Weyr and all its members, will stand up and fight for what is right for the Weyr and all its members. Kynthia is not afraid and sometimes speaks her mind when she should be more diplomatic, but she means well. Is organized, but has learned to delegate to the Headwoman or junior goldriders.

History: Impressed at age 15, and chosen by a gold dragon who would later become Senior Queen when the former Weyrwoman’s gold died, as did the Weyrwoman. Has been Weyrwoman for six years now after starting young. Has two children Amberly (9) and Ryac (11) by her long-time weyrmate, who was killed in a past Thread battle. Had them before she became leader and had to stop fighting Thread as a junior goldrider while pregnant due to the harm it could have caused the unborn children. So far they have been mostly raised by foster mothers so Kynthia could return to fighting and leading, but she sees them often and they celebrate Birthing Days together.


Dragon:

Name: Sutanith

Color: Gold, Senior Queen; slender face with rounded eye ridges and horns that have a slight outward curve to them.

Age:  15

Personality: Protective, but sometimes selectively so. Used to be a bit of a snob but Kynthia helped her to learn to get to know people and other dragons first and not judge them. Currently pregnant again by Garrth and due clutch in the next few weeks. Sutanith can no longer lead the Queen’s Wing in fighting Thread, so Kynthia does not fight either. The Headwoman takes her place with the junior gold riders, of which there are three.


Fire-lizards: Gold, female - Jilly, and Red, male – Eron (mates)

Name: Saffi

Position: Dragonrider, female

Age: 25

Appearance:
Straight, shoulder length with bangs. Dark auburn hair with lighter red streaks
Green eyes
Roundish face, fresh and innocent looking
Medium height and build but very agile

Personality: Enthusiastic, talkative and inquisitive but has learned when to stop talking—usually. Subtle about her nosiness. Has a excess of energy during the day, but then will sleep soundly at night, her mind and heart at peace about her life. Very responsible even if she comes off a bit hyper, and can be serious when need be.

History: Grew up at the Weyr as a Weyrbrat, raised by entire Weyr but her mother works in the kitchens and her father is a beastherder. They weren’t and aren’t so much a close family as the children became part of the Weyr, but they are all fond of each other. Has a half brother who is 18, who was born as a result of her mother taking another weyrmate for awhile before returning to Saffi’s father. Impressed when she was 15. Trained hard as a weyrling and was made Dragonrider at age 18.



Dragon:

Name: Ilsith

Color: Female, rich brown: various shades that makes her seem to ripple in the sunlight. She is of medium size and so is quick and agile.

Age: 10

Personality: Ilsith is very talkative and nosy. She has to know everything that is going on around her. More obvious about it and sometimes annoys the other dragons but she means well. Just wants to meet new people and make friends, especially riders and their dragons, as well as know what’s going on. Takes fighting Thread very seriously as she knows her life—and her rider’s—depends on it.


Fire-lizard: Blue (shimmery), male - Chaz

Name: Aislyn

Age: 21

Position: Dragonrider

Gender: Female

Appearance: 5'6", 120lbs, green eyes, dark brown hair that arrives to the shoulders (always tied back), white skin but slightly tanned, slender and toned build, has some scars (which look like scratch marks) on her left shoulder/upper arm.

Personality: Determined, concentrated and headstrong, to the point of being stubborn, but won't argue with Wingleaders (unless she strongly believes that something is wrong). She cares for her fellow Dragonriders and enjoys working with them. She's also shown the capability for giving orders and planning strategies. She works hard to one day become a Wingleader.

History: Her father was an accomplished Wingleader for many years, until he and his dragon died in an accident; her mother is a Harper who came to Camden Weyr when she was a young woman to teach children. Aislyn admired her father and remained close to him until his death; she always intended to become a Dragonrider, and perhaps one day a Wingleader. However, living up to her father's reputation has not been easy.

Dragon

Name: Feyth

Color: light copper

Age: almost 5

Personality: Also determined, and a bit on the stubborn side, but is usually willing to compromise with Aislyn. She's generally light-hearted but also concentrated and serious when they're in a dangerous/tricky situation. When Feyth was younger she was playful (sometimes a bit too playful, hence the scars on Aislyn's arm), but she quickly matured and became more disciplined. She enjoys flying and fighting Thread, and believes she is quite good at the latter.

Name: Seraphina

Position: Master Healer / Dragonrider

Age: 32

Appearance: 5' 62, slender/willowy, black/silver (streaked) hair, pale skinned, obsidian eyes (silver flecks when she is angry or frightened)

Personality: She's a good listener, sympathetic, trustworthy, patient and slow to anger. She is very confident in her healing abilities, but not arrogant. When she’s not working she likes to relax in the company of family and friends. Friends say she has a morbid sense of humour. She is unmated and intends to stay that way for a little while longer, she can be stubborn and demanding, her apprentices often refer to her as the ‘tyrant’ but they all love and respect her.

History: Born and raised in the Weyr, the daughter of a healer and a weaver, two siblings, a brother Onyx (29) and sister, Erin (21). She was apprenticed to the Healer crafthall at the age of 9 as she had a natural talent for the healing arts, Impressed at 17, spent two years raising Merleth but realized her true calling lay in healing....due to the unbreakable bond between dragon and rider she split her time between acting as a journeywoman practicing her craft in the Weyr and dragon training. At the age of 31 she achieved the rank of master. As a master she has her own medical cavern and is able to pass on her craft to apprentices and journeymen/women

Dragon:

Name: Merleth (27 ft long male dragon, fast and agile)

Color: Silver (a very dark silver, almost grey with lighter patches on his wings and head)

Age: 15

Personality: Merleth is a very sociable dragon, he enjoys the company of others and dislikes long periods on his own. He likes to be the centre of attention, he wants to be admired, he is flirtatious and spends a lot of time with the female dragons. He can be short-tempered and always speaks his mind…his favourite food is fish and he enjoys playing in the water, he likes to splash Seraphina and anyone else within reach....he still insists on being oiled regularly as he likes to keep his hide in good shape.

Seraphina - she looks a little older now ;)

Name: Kylene

Position: Wingleader

Age: 27

Appearance: Natural blond hair, kept at chin length to keep under her riding helmet. Blue eyes and although her skin is naturlly  pale it has a slightly tanned appearance due to a lifetime outdoors. She is taller than most women and strong through a combination of genetics and physical training as a Dragonrider.
Skills: Trained in hand-to-hand combat and skilled with both knife and sword. Her first aid skills are elementary. She is a skilled threadfighter.

Personality: Intelligent, complex, curious combined with a strong will and determined mindset. She is calm and seldom gets flustered by any situation yet she is in no way cold or distant.

History: Kylene was born in Camden Weyr, daughter of a bronze wingleader father and a tanner mother who worked in the weyr to help manage the weyr's stores of clothing and leather flying gear. Like many children in the weyr she showed aptitude towards dragons and was raised mostly in the lower caverns. She learnt her lessons well from the weyr Harper and when she was 14 she was permitted to have a chance at Impression during one of the hatchings. It was then she impressed the silver dragon female named Melenth. Both learned how to fight thread as the dragon grew up. By the time she was 17 she became a wingsecond and was nineteen when she had her daughter. However, she was twenty by the time she actually returned to weyr duties. She has a six year old daughter named Sophiria, a result of one of Melenth's early mating flights just after Kylene's 21st birthday and thus she had to take maternity leave in the time during her pregnancy. Sophiria is being raised in the lower caverns however both Kylene and her father Jaren play a role in the raising of their child when either parent isn't on weyr duties. She is on good terms with Jaren and while they aren't weyrmates they share a close bond. Kylene became a wingleader when she was 24 and during the three years since then she had gained a reputation for the disclipine of her wing, her fairness as a leader and calm in the face of danger and battle.

Dragon Profile.

Dragon: Female.

Name: Melenth

Color: Silver, large and strong but not quite as agile as the smaller dragons.

Age: Ten

Personality: Like her rider she is calm in most situations. However unlike her rider she is placid and doesn't think towards the future. So long as her belly is full, her skin is oiled and non itchy and her rider is safe she is perfectly content with life. She's not above working to relay messages between holds and crafthall.

And my second character.


Name: Grianne

Position: Weyr Master Harper

Age: 32

Appearance: Grianne is an albino, having pure white hair from birth, pale skin and bluish-grey eyes. She is just below average in height with a light build.

Skills: Plays a variety of instruments from her craft such as guitar, drums, harp, pipes ect. A professionally trained singer. Some first aid skills. Very basic hand to hand combat training and knife skills however she is good in a brawl.

Personality: Has a wry sense of humour, confident and enjoys performing at big events. Very patient and good with children. People are inclined to trust her and she often hears things that others do not. Has a fairly easygoing nature.

History: Grianne is the daughter of a trader mother, Anne who travelled with a caravan of other traders across the continent, trading between holds and a father, Talyn who had spent most of his life as a pirate and bandit. When they fell in love Talyn joined the caravan and became a trader. Soon they were married and Grianne was the result of that. She spent her first 13 years moving from place to place with her parents and quickly found she enjoyed music and often wrote and composed her own little songs and tunes. Her brother Bek, came two years after her. It was this talent with music that eventually got her noticed by the Harpers at Highland Hold in the Jura mountains. They told Anne and Talyn that Grianne might have the talent to become a Harper herself and requested that Grianne be taken to Harper hall for further assessment and training. Both parents were delighted and agreed. And thus Grianne was taken to Harper hall and assessed. She became a Harper apprentice and spent her teenage years at the Hall. By 20 she became a Journeyman and was posted to Camden Hold to be one of the Harpers there. It was there she met who became her husband Denol and had a son named Ahren at 21. However when she was 28 she returned with her husband and son to Harper hall to continue her studies. At 31 she gained her Mastery and was reassigned to Camden Weyr to perform her duties there. Being a Harper at a Weyr is no small honour and naturally her family came with her. Grianne and her family has been at the weyr for just over a year now. Denol works raising the herdbeasts for the dragons. Ahren lives with his parents and they have the main task of raising him however when both are working he stays in the lower caverns amongst the other children. Grianne is happy and content with her life at Camden Weyr.

Ok, here goes, I hope I have this right.

Name: Alomar-male

Position: Wing Leader

Age: About 25 turns

Appearance:

His stature is short
He has long blonde hair-kept braided and tied with a leather string.
Blue eyes, fair skin.

Personality: Very outgoing, bordering on reckless sometimes. He and his dragon both love to fly for fun and do aerial acrobatics.

History: His mother died in childbirth so he never knew her, He barely knows his father, being a Weyrbrat raised by the entire Weyr. Both parents were/are dragonriders and he was found favorable to be impressed so he was impressed at 16, made rider at 19 and Leader at 23.



Dragon: They are impressed at hatching-right?

Name: Cherabith, female

Color: Iridescent bronze-her color seems to sparkle in the sunlight.

Age: 9

Personality: Much like her rider-very outgoing and reckless, talkative. She loves to fly with her rider, doing aerial acrobatics just for the fun of it but they also help when she's battling thread. She's one of the smaller dragons but very agile due to her love of flying.

Will try to search for a picture later.

Name: Ferris

Position: Wingleader

Age: Not sure probably around mid twenties

Appearance:
5’ 7”
Slender build very agile and acrobatic.
Blond curly slightly unruly hair, usually worn very short.  Grey blue eyes fair skin.  

Personality: Likes to joke and fool around but never when working.  Is totally dedicated to the care of his dragon.  Loves being a rider, he now knows that it is what he was born to do.  He enjoys female company but has never taken a weyrmate.  He is having too much fun to commit to anyone person.

History: Was orphaned at an early age.  Ferris lived off his wits on the streets of the Hold he was born in.  He was taken in by a Fagin like character who used to ill treat him and the other children he controlled. After one particularly harsh beating Ferris decided to leave the Hold and try to find a way of life in the lower caverns of Camden Weyr.  It was discovered that he was sensitive to Impression and he has been with his dragon for 8 years.

Dragon:

Name: Syrilth

Color: Male; Small for a male and very agile.  He is silver with a slightly darker stripe running from his head right down the length of his body and tail.

Age: 8

Personality: Syrilth has a very similar personality to his rider.  He has a sense of fun and loves to fly for any reason.  He is fearless and that can lead them both into trouble.

Fire-lizard: Bright blue, female - Maia

Spoiler: click to show/hide
Name: Tully

Position: Dragonrider

Age: 22

Appearance: Tall (5'9"), slender (115 lbs.), extremely lithe and willowy, copper colored hair- big and unruly, pale skin and very dark eyes, childlike face
Personality: Fierce, loyal, sincere, she has a soft voice and a slow, quiet way of speaking. She's gentle with people and animals. She listens but she never gives advice.
She takes things too personally, sometimes, and can be socially awkward and easily embarrassed.
She's a good friend to have, however, because she'll do almost anything to help.
She has a knack for seeing the big picture and understanding people's true intentions.
Apart from social situations, she's a good scholar and excellent at her job. Here, she's stubborn and tenacious and needs no validation. She does not like criticism.

History: Her parents were probably crafters or herders, but she likes to imagine that maybe they were dragonriders or even that one was a wingleader.
They chose not to show her a particular interest. She was raised with the other weyrbrats, and was impressed at 14, which came as a surprise to her, as she expected to learn a craft or some other less exciting profession, and have a long, uneventful life. It was a good surprise, though.
She only recently became a full-fledged dragonrider, having spent all but the previous year in training.

Dragon

Name: Symarinth

Age: 8

Color: A metallic copper- Tully jokes that Symarinth only chose her because she matches her hair. She's on the smaller side, as far as dragons go, but she's one of the most agile of the species. She has big eyes and a pointy face.

Personality: Full of energy, Symarinth is a lot like a puppy. She's affectionate and loyal, and will let Tully know when she wants attention. She's playful and sees fighting the Thread as a game, although, Tully is always trying to get her to take it more seriously. She's social and trusting with people, but cautious around other dragons. She and Tully consult each other, but Symarinth will defer to Tully's judgment when it comes to training and fighting.

the awesome nikki has let me create a second character. :D here's his profile:

Name: Briac

Age: 22

Position: Journeyman Healer

Appearance: 5’8”, 135lbs, light brown hair, brown eyes, lightly tanned, toned build

Personality: Generally upbeat and optimistic, serious when working, caring, good sense of humor

History: Lived and worked at Camden Hold up until three months ago, when he moved to the Weyr. Both his parents are also healers. They don’t approve of the way dragonriders live, but Briac didn’t share their beliefs and finally rebelled, moving to the Weyr. He hasn’t stayed in contact with his parents since.
Neville: "My grandmother forbids me from using raunchy language."
Harry: "Well your grandmother is a Blast-Ended Skank!"
Neville: *GASP*
Hermione: "He doesn't mean it Neville, he's just testing out some wizard swears."
Harry: "I mean every word I ever say ever, because I'm Harry Potter." --'Wizard Swears', Potter Puppet Pals

Hermione: "What's your problem Harry?"
Harry: "My parents are dead, my life sucks, I can't hold down a girlfriend, and I'm surrounded by f*ck*ng goblins and sh*t all the time. I mean what the f*ck?"
Ron: "But it's magic Harry. The goblins are magical!" --'Wizard Angst', Potter Puppet Pals

Me: "It's just a matter of looking past [McKay's] arrogant exterior to see his warm, fuzzy, probably angst-filled interior."
Hawkeye: "You harperchondriac girls think everyone has an angst filled interior."

"Good gods, you sniff out angst like a police dog sniffs out drugs." --Lyric (to me)
