Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Anabelle has ice-blue eyes and shoulderlength tawny brown hair with golden highlights courtesy of the sun that she's always out playing in. She's on the slightly small side as she only stands at 4'5" but is still growing and hasn't reached her full height yet. Her face is heartshaped with rosy cheeks. Her skin is covered with a scattering of freckles and is tanned nicely.
Personality: Anabelle is a bit like her older sister, Kareena in personality and behaviour as she'll help out the Elders in her Trader Caravan with their needs as well as helping babysitting the younger children and watching over the little ones to make sure that they stay out from underfoot. Anabelle is a good helper when it comes to tending to the animals, she likes collecting the eggs from the birds and ducks that are in the cages and milking the goats and cows during her morning chores before breakfast. She likes to stargaze late at night watching the sky and wonders about her older siblings and what they're doing and if they're happy where they're at. After everything gets taken care of, Anabelle likes to unhook her runner from the back of the wagon and go for rides around the campsite to familarize herself with their new surroundings. She has the same sneaky sense of humour that Nichos has in the fact that it sneaks out when the person she's talking with least expects it to appear during their conversation. At times when she goes off on her little rides, she pretends that her runner is a dragon and she's a brave dragonrider fighting thread for the rest of the folk on Pern and hopes that she gets the chance to do the same thing that her older siblings were doing over in the Weyr. When she's with her friends and trader children her age she's relaxed and a bit of a showoff, but when she's around new people or those that she doesn't know very well, she's a bit on the shy side and wont speak very much until she feels comfortable around them then she shows her playful and joking side as she can relax and show her true colors around them like she does around her family and old friends.
History: Anabelle was born the fifth child and second girl to at that time a family Trader Caravan of four,with Nichos being the oldest boy and only brother to the two girls. She was happily doted on by both Kareena and Nichos who would watch her carefully to make sure that she didn't get into any dangerous situations around their campsite like getting into the undergrowth and putting sticks and other strange things of that nature into her mouth that could make her ill. Once when she was two turns old, she came down with an illness that caused her skin to break out in slightly red and itchy splotches after a few days it cleared up but was a scary thing for her family as none of her family came down with it they were just glad that she got over it ok with no other problems for them to worry about. When she became a bit older, and was able to be left alone without much supervision, she would proudly follow her older siblings around copying them happily when they did the chores that the older children would do like gathering firewood, unharnessing the runners from the traces that they were in when the Caravan was moving onto the next campsite. On her tenth Turnday, she was allowed to go with the older children to leave the campsite proper and bring back the few marks that she earned from her little messenges that she took from the Lord Holder to the different people that he wanted to meet with and when she returned with the reply that he waited for he would pay her a few 1/2 or 1/4 marks and if he was in a generous mood or she had a fast runner and returned promptly, he would pay her a few full Marks instead of what he usually would pay her for her being his messenger girl. Anabelle would proudly return with her payment to the campsite and add it to the container for the required fee that they would use when they stayed on the Lord Holder's land or anyone else's that the Trader Caravan was parked on. One day while she was taking care of her runners riding gear, the tanner that traveled with them saw her diligently working on it and decided to take her under his wing as his apprentice and teach Anabelle about leather working and how to create new gear as well as taking care of the old gear that she still used and how to tell when it needed to be replaced with the newer gear.
Information about Anabelle's dragon
Dragon Name: Tzerath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Egg - Tiny Shiny Bubbles Egg: Ahhh, the sheer effervescence of this egg is a wonder. Immediately upon entering its presence one feels a sense of well-being, as if all is good with the world. Maybe just the perpetual motion of the Tiny Shiny Bubbles egg is soothing, for this egg seems to fizz with pure energy. There will be those who get close to the Tiny Bubbles Egg and swear that the headache they had just a few short minutes ago is gone, that they no longer have a tummy-ache. Yet there will be others who will get too close, and begin to sneeze. Is this egg actually fizzing? Or is that, too, an illusion?
Personality: He's the type of dragon who, especially when young, has more energy in him than a pack of canines. And he uses every iota of that energy during the day, much to his rider's dismay. And yet, his rider isn't too bad off, because Tzerath's energy is very contagious. No matter how bad his rider and anyone else around him is, Tzerath seems to be able to parcel out some of his enthusiasm, his alertness, and soon everyone is laughing, playing, and having a good time.
