Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Hair: Golden blonde. Falls to her mid back when unbound. She keeps it braided in a pony tail and wrapped in a bun. Eyes: Green; HT.: 5'2"; WT.: 120 lbs.; She is actually quite pretty. With the right clothes she'd be beautiful but appearance has never meant anything to her. She has a body with curves in all the right places. Size C breasts. A figure that any woman would kill for. Tends to wear baggy clothes to hide her figure and scarfs to hide her beautiful hair.
Personality: Lonely, shy, wants to help others, strong maternal instincts. Wants desperately to find true love but she is afraid to trust men after the example of her father and the hardships she endured after leaving the Healing Craft to tend patients because she was female. She's afraid she'll end up like her mother, forceably raped, labeled a whore with an unwanted female child. And then the only men who want her will only want her for sex. Longs for a true love mate, marriage, and children.
History: She is a journeywoman dragon healer. Birthplace: Fort Hold. Parents: Mother: Sydalga, Minor Fort Cook; Father:Otaiznun, master woodsmith. She is the illegimate daugther of Master Otaiznun. Her mother took care of her but didn't demonstrate any love for her. She was always scolding her for being a female. If she had been a male Otaiznun would have married her and she'd be set for life. But she was glad to get the child support for Asha just the same. She taught her daughter how to cook, clean, and basic sewing, mostly mending. But was glad when her daughter showed healer talent and was accepted

Information about Ashalana's dragon
Dragon Name: Cotonth
Age: 18 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Although Cotonth is of average size, her headknobs are a bit longer than her sisters
Personality: Cotonth is sweet and loves to cuddle. She finds it hard to be away from her lifemate until she realizes the male dragons are a good replacement. Her sweet demeanor, however, is only a facade. For inside, she is a mischievous plotter and loves to create small pranks that her lifemate must constantly talk her out of doing. Nothing dangerous, of course, but she loves to surprise her clutchmates and their lifemates. And some of those surprises are often good things because she is a very giving green.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Prankster. Very giving. Shorter tail and longer headnobs and larger front teeth. Hopefully she will grow out of them as her body catches up.
