Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Bd: Month 7, Day 20.
Personality: A happy person, considering the hardship she got at home. Always willing to help others. She can be a bit senstive, but usually persuades herself to not be affected by words and snaps out of a strop within about half an hour. Has always been fasinated by dragons and their riders, likes to draw them on peices of hide, leaves, anything she can get her hands on. A bit accident prone, and she has no idea why. Has an irrational fear of being trapped inbetween two peices of rock, but as the years go by this is starting to go away. She is happy, nice to get on with, and generally can see both sides of an argument. Her only problem is selfish, bigheaded people and usually makes it her buisness to but in and correct them in their ways (as she sees it) and because of this did not get on well with some of the children at her hold. She is trying hard to make friends because she hates the feeling of people whispering behind her back. She is not a sheep, she likes to go her own way, but she wouldnt force others to follow her.
History: She used to have a happy life. Brought up in a small seahold, she loved the sea. At 3 turns, her brother was born. Her most traumatic moment was at 5 turns, and it was then her life got all that more difficult. Her father, one of the most dear to her heart, died in an accident. He was a part of the ground crews in a Fall, and the flamethrower backfired, burning her father until he died. Her mother seemed to blame it on her and Alwisa, was now the focus of all the greif her mother could muster. Because of this, Alwisa now will do anything to get rid of Thread, and desperatly wants companionship and freinds, both of which were denied her in life beforehand. She was always talked about because of her mother and wants to forget this. Her mother generally blamed her because she had no one else to blame and was never close to her child in the first place, always thinking her as an accident. Sadly, her mother lost too much of her heart when her lover died and had nowhere else to turn, as she rejected the kind words of others in the hold. She poured out her spite on her daughter, getting progressivly delusioned. Alwisa has always thought of her mother as her problem and rarley seeks advice from others regarding her. She made a few friends at the hold, but was never that close to them, as they were wary of her mother. Her birthing day is in the 7th month.
Information about Alwisa's dragon
Dragon Name: Powhath(Po, Pow,
Age: 18 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Weyrling Wing (Under 16)
Appearance: Powhath is gracefully built, and her hide is not baggy in anyplace whatsoever. There is a small hint of muscle under the skin, but Powhath is strong. Her green colouration is devided into two diffent shades, only barely different at her head, but lancing along her body in a spiral, becoming more defined, and at her tail, if you look closley, you can see the difference in colour clearly. This colour deviates at her wings as well, but splaying out like fingers, stretching over the entire wing. Her body is well proportioned, and as she walks, Powhath walks with dignity and grace.
Personality: Powhath's big fear in life will be decisions, and she'll spend her days
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: She has a tendency to shoot out to protect others in Threadfall, throwing herself bodily in front of them. This is all very brave and heroic but may put both rider and dragon in the Infirmary repeatedly, as well as messing up formation.
