Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: B'nlee is a tall slim young man of 5 feet 10 inches. He's not *that* tall but he likes to think he is. Sadly he seems to have reached his full height, which irks him a little. He has a pleasant open face with brown eyes and tightly curled blond hair, and rather a strong chin. An immaculate dresser, he's rarely seen looking anything other than completely proper for the occasion, even if it's just doing the usual chores.
Personality: There's nothing deceitful about B'nlee, he's happy and helpful, sporting none of the arrogance that you might expect from someone of his station. Once he's given his word on something you can expect him to see any task through, just because he hates letting people down. He's eager to please and puts himself forward for things but without being too pushy. Deeply romantic at heart he tries to keep that side of him hidden a little as he's concerned that someone else might choose to try and exploit it. But he does know that when he finds the right woman to fall for, there will be no other as long as he lives. He's quick to forgive any wrongdoing against him as long as the other person has some good justification for their actions.
History: The eldest son of a minor Holder near High Reaches, Barinlee would have come into the hold in time, had he only waited around long enough. But he was struck from an early age with the amount of freedom that dragonriders had in their lives, even though he knew what their duties were. As soon as he was 12 he told his parents that they should make other arrangements for the inheritance of the hold, as he would be a dragonrider if he could.
Information about B'nlee's pets
Pet Name: Beauty (Wild Flit)
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Beauty was most likely a Beauty before she was injured but now she has scars and marks all over her. She is a dark forest green all over. Her scars are white which give her a green tiger look. Her wings are almost destroyed which has led her to adopt B'nlee since he helped her get better.
Personality: Beauty is a very shy flit. She is known to nip and she has done it a few times to B'nlee. She isnt one for new things. She has learned to trust B'nlee alot and every now and again she will sit on his shoulder as long as no one else gets to close to her.
Information about B'nlee's dragon
Dragon Name: Berleth
Age: 8 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Long and elegantly proportioned, this bronze, but powerfully built. Wide strong wings of a darker colour than the rest of him will carry him easily aloft when the time comes. His body is shaded more towards sunlight filtering through autumn leaves, causing a dappled mix of light to medium hues along his sides and belly. He's certainly an imposing dragon to look upon, graceful even when just hatched, for all his size. His head is wide at the top of his skull but narrows somewhat towards his muzzle, making his appearance very pleasing.
Personality: This lad seems to have a somewhat superior air to him, as if he considers himself above the rest of his clutchmates. Is he really better than them? Well no, but it's only through coming to understand him that you'll find a more open personality than you expected. He isn't stuck-up or arrogant, he would just rather not speak unless he's confident that he won't be ridiculed. Of course this won't apply to his lifemate, and to him the dragon will be almost playful, indulging in battles of wits and long discussions - all in good fun, of course. But it's important for him to maintain his dignity amongst others, he has no wish to be a laughing stock. Occasionally he will involve himself in someone else's doings but only if he feels it's "for the best". If, after that, his interference proves to have made matters worse he'll be chagrined and will do what he can to set things to rights again.
