Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: B'nser is a dashing looking man, with a square face and solid jaw. There's always a smile on his mouth, even when no one is watching B'nser; he's generally happy with life, and almost always looks it. His faintly squinting eyes are a rather non-descript shade of blue, which goes well with his equally unremarkable short dark brown hair. He stands at five feet, ten inches, and his weight fluctuates through shades of good fitness and good health.
Personality: Upstanding, Loyal, proud, well groomed, intelligent, just, loyal, just, moral, just and… It’s a definite pattern for B’nser. He has clear definitions of right and wrong, and if you’re wrong he’ll do his very very best to stop you, or whatever it is that’s going on. He really should have been a guard and not a dragonrider, because at least if he’d been a guard he wouldn’t have had to work so hard and fail so badly at the idea of ‘teamwork’. B’nser is a good man, though, and he does things with the best of intentions in mind – nevermind that it’s usually stupid of him to do it the *way* he does.
History: A typical unremarkable history. B’nser’s father R’tser was a bronzerider and a Busy Man, so B’nser was fostered at an early age to his grandparents. They worked in the service of a lord holder, his grandmother head of the kitchens and his grandfather as the steward, and did a reasonably good job of raising B’nser into the considerate, upstanding, polite, uh, person that he is today.
Information about B'nser's dragon
Dragon Name: Diefeneth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: Diefeneth is an average sized brown, with an average wingspan. He has a few streaks of paler brown on his hide, that fall in no reasonable pattern, and aren’t even aesthetically pleasing. His head knobs are perhaps a little oversized, and they’re almost worn from the rubbing he demands. And his tail is a little thin, but other than that? Diefeneth looks perfectly normal. The odd thread score marrs his hide, but they’re from B’nser’s young and stupid first few years and all were well tended.
Personality: Loyal, upstanding… no, no, he’s not quite like B’nser. He is loyal, and quick to make a stand, but he’s also probably a bit more level headed than his Lifemate is. Not exactly a guiding figure or a role model for other dragons, Diefeneth fancies himself a bit like a human, too. He’s a touch spoiled by his rider, but the good in both of their personalities outweigh the spoiling.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Diefeneth is all but blind. No horrible accident, no horrible incident brought it about. He was just hatched that way, and that could have been why he chose B’nser as His. He sees through B’nser when he needs to in thread, but handles himself well on his own.
