Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Adriel is fairly short, about 5'5" and 130 lbs with a petite body. Her skin is fair and her hair is an auburn-brown, kept a bit longer than shoulder-length. She always has it up in some fancy twist or pile of braids with wispy locks falling on either side of her face. She has a small, oval face with a slight cleft in her chin and a dainty nose. Her eyes are a very deep almost black-brown, unusual for her colouring type.
Personality: Adriel could be described as fairly nice most of the time but if you get in her way, watch out! She has a temper that can flare up suddenly, without warning. More often than not she is easy to get along with, she's passionate and loves life but because of her temper, making friend can be difficult and she can hold a grudge for a very, very long time. She is also very adept at the art of gossip and turning others against each other if it gets her what she wants.
History: Adriel was born at Igen Weyr, the daughter of a greenrider and an unknown father. She was raised in the crèche and very quickly became the child most likely to throw a fit and temper tantrum when she wanted anything. Her mother had little to do with her and the creche workers couldn't wait until she was old enough to become either a Candidate or apply for a craft. Adriel was slightly interested in sewing and the weaver craft, so the local weaver tried to take her under his wing and perhaps persuade her to become an official apprentice in the Craft. Adriel, however, did not enjoy the long hours of work and even though the little work she accomplished yielded beautiful embroidery and stitching, she discarded it and chose to lounge about bothering the riders or weyrlings. She had no interest in standing for an Igen Hatching, but when an Arolos Search rider happened to attend a gather at Igen, and picked her out of a crowd, she shrugged, packed up her things and moved to Arolos.
Information about Adriel's dragon
Dragon Name: Butacth
Age: 18 Months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Flamespires
Appearance: Butacth is a dark green color, and at first glance almost appears to be a dragon-shaped shadow. However, if one continues to watch, they'll never mistake her for an inanimate object again. A natural flirt, she struts around like she owns the Weyr. She is a large-sized green, with a structure that thickens towards her rear end. Her hindlegs are quite formidable, and
Personality: This green dragon can't keep still or quiet for long. Often inclined to talk the ears (or lack thereof) off of her clutchmates, she's fond of prancing around and creating mischief... especially if a male dragon is involved. From a young age she'll discover the wonders of flirting, and will test the waters to see just how far she can push others.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Butacth is a quick flyer and even though much distracted on the ground, proves a steady part of any wing she is assigned to.
