Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Ar'dor stands at 5' 11" and weighs around 160lbs. He doesn't have a paunch, despite all the drinking he does, and he is still fit - though he still wonders why he isn't fat. He has light brown hair with a fringe that curls at his forehead. The ends of every hair on his head curls
Personality: Ar'dor is a rather uninhibited man. He indulges in almost all of life's pleasures bar excessive gambling and a few other things that he find distasteful. He chases after bedmates rather relentlessly and doesn't know when to stop as he never seems to get hints. He might stop if it was told bluntly right to his face. Maybe! He has thick skin and can sit right through a session while gossip about him is buzzing all around without even noticing. He is stubborn and rather slow to react at times. He seems to have a gift to irritate people - sometimes just by merely asking a question or by doing something. This normally stems from the fact that he does not get hints from people and because he does not know what people think about him. He is easily shocked and does not react well to shock. When he is saddened by something or is angry at something, his first reactions are to get drunk and to get laid and then he thinks the world will be all better again - though it never turns out to be! (Hungovers are not good!)
History: Born in Ista Weyr, the product of a mating flight between a greenrider and a bluerider - who was by the way, renowned for his ability to drink more than anybody else. His mother named him Arudor and he was fostered to his mother's sister in the Lower Caverns. She wasn't the most loving person in the world and her face reminded him of someone who had been smelling dirty socks for a week. She was a slow person, to say it kindly and was still able to care for young Arudor though he spent most of this time with other children his age as soon as he could walk.
Information about Ar'dor's dragon
Dragon Name: Acierth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: A rather nice shade of blue that seems to look like a pastel shade because it seems to have far too much white in it. He is average in size and has an average wing size, head size, tail length. He is normal!
Personality: Acierth is normally in the background and is normally quiet, never speaking and serves as a reminder to his rider to get up and do things. He is a bit of slouch and likes nothing better than lying in the sun, with a full stomach and a green next to him to flirt with.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: He has a rather good memory for a dragon, or maybe that is offset by the fact that his rider has almost no memory and relies on his dragon's? *grins* He is fast, but has very little stamina in a Fall.
