Name Pronounced: A-sha-ya
Appearance: Her face featured large, wide set green eyes - always sparkling with laughter, a small pert nose, a full, expressive mouth, and smooth, plump cheeks. It was a face that could have more easily belong to a child of 12 rather than a girl of 15 full turns - very nearly a woman full grown (in Ashaya's own opinion). Said face was framed by a mop of short unruly curls, dark enough of a brown to be considered black and nearly impossible to keep under control.
Personality: Perhaps the best word to describe Ashaya was: alive. She always had a smile in her eyes and laughter on her lips. Her warm, open manner ensured that she made friends quickly and easily, no matter were she went. But, just because she had many friends did not make her any less loyal of protective to any one of them.
History: Born: 188.8.131.52
Information about Ashaya's pets
Pet Name: Mini-Sera (Mini)
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Mini truly is a tiny creature, small even in comparison to her green sisters. She's a pretty thing, with delicately boned features and a beautiful hide of pure emerald green, spread evenly across her entire body, unblemished by any markings. Though her body is otherwise evenly proportioned, her head is just the slightest bit too big for her tiny body, giving her a perpetually babyish appearance.
Personality: For such a tiny creature, Mini certainly has a lot of energy. Not content to simply sit on Ashaya's shoulder and look pretty, Mini will constantly be up and about, exploring, discovering, and generally sticking her fine little snout in places where it does not belong. Add to that an intensely motherly and caring nature. Mini wants to take care of everyone and solve everyone's problems. And if she must take a hand in order to make sure that everything worked out as it should, then so be it. Mini has no compunction about chiding, and bullying the people around her into acting in their own best interests.
Information about Ashaya's dragon
Dragon Name: Serameth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Serameth is the epitome of an awkward green. She is long and lanky, her limbs far too much for a dragon born without much grace on the ground. This isn’t helped by the fact that Serameth won’t just take her time with things but will rush through activities she has no interest in. Serameth will have a very rough time on the ground but will actually be almost ethereal and pretty in the air. Her sleek body will slice through the air and she will be her happiest and calmest flying at night with the stars as her only flying companion.
Personality: Serameth is a bit flighty and clumsy. She loves to flirt and gossip and often exasperates those males she becomes infatuated with. She is very forgetful even for a green. Her desperate need to be cuddled next to males will get her in trouble. She loves mysterious males even if they don’t particularly love the bubbly green. But while she’ll get hearts in her eyes for most every attractive male, once Serameth finds the right one she’ll be incredibly loyal to him, demanding he win all of her flights. If he can be patient with her flightiness and her impatience with boring wing drills, they will be one of the best companions in the Weyr.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Though ungainly and awkward on the ground, Serameth will be wonder to behold in the air. She will make the most difficult dives and turns seem easy and effortless. Those who watch her fly would almost be willing swear that she was an apparition of air rather than a dragon of flesh and blood.
