Name Pronounced: Brrkan as in can
Appearance: Br'kan has fair complexion, medium blond hair, and blue eyes. He is a thin person with height of 4 feet 11 inches. Taking care of a new dragonet is helping him build muscle, but he will never be as muscularly defined as some of his peers. By age 20, Br'kan will reach his full height of 5"9" and he will be described as thin and wiry for the rest of his life..
Personality: Br'kan (Brolikan) was a pampered cotholder son with an influential holder grandpapa. His parents never denied any of his whining and pleading demands. Work and chores were never words young Brolikan ever heard. He is a smart enough young fellow and his hearing is just fine, but one would swear he was deaf at times. At least he seemed that way when he just didn't think things applied to him.
History: Brolikan was the product of an arranged and basically loveless marriage of two holder off-spring. His parents were growing to love each other and expected more children to come along, but no pregnancies ever occurred. Healers couldn't explain it to them other than telling them it happened on occasion, but to keep hoping. The parents hoped, but had the secret fear when Brolikan turned 2 that he would be their only child. His parents and grandparents were, of course, disappointed and began investing all their love, attention, and marks on their only child son and grandson bending to his every whim. That included one influential holder grandfather who showered the boy with everything he could want. Brolikan became basically self-absorbed in his behavior toward others. He had also become exceedingly whiney when he didn't get his way. That one grandpapa had many ties that were never spoken of and could get things to happen. All little Brolikan knew was to bypass his parents to ask that one grandpapa.
Information about Br'kan's dragon
Dragon Name: Zeeth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Blue Zeeth is the color of sea blue that rider's in the South of Pern see during flight over the South Pern seas. There are even odd reflections at times of day when random slightly lighter blue spots seem to reflect the appearance of sea weed well below the sea's surface that, but there is no green of any kind on blue Zeeth's hide. Zeeth is a thin dragon of average blue dragon length which gives the illusion of him having a longer body. Many note that the blue and his rider match in both being of thin body frame. Like his rider though, Zeeth is strong and lean which gives him less air resistance and maneuverability.
Personality: Zeeth hatched suspicious of everything and everyone. Br'kan and the AWLMs were quite relieved to see that Zeeth seems to have grown out of that tendency as he gains life experience. As he grows older, Zeeth will seem a bit as arrogant as the metallics. He may later on develop into a bit of a conspiracy theorist which he will freely share with the only person he trusts which is his rider, of course. Zeeth is a fairly smart blue and his ability to form conspiracy theories no matter how outlandish they might seem will be good for his brain when Br'kan and Zeeth begin fighting thread. Zeeth does his best in everything he must do and learn. His flaming will be worthy of praise if a blue dragon can get that from Fort wingleaders. Zeeth and his rider will become a good threadfighting pair and that is all anyone can ask. The risings of the greens will be one of his favorite events.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Strong flyer, good flamer, manueverable. Gets caught up in forming conspiracy theories.
