Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Braelyn has long, dark brown hair, that she hates and wants to cut. Her mother, Kaia, loves it, and didn't want her to. Because of this, Braelyn usually just wears it up, or in a braid. She is petite, but not too much for her age, and a little on the short side.
Personality: Braelyn is usually nice, unless someone angers her, and then she gets very mad, but luckily that's *very* uncommon. When she isn't mad, she's very sweet and caring. She is also very stubborn when she wants to be. Braelyn has no trouble with change, if she thinks that it will lead to greater good. If she thinks the other way around, she won't talk to anyone unless she gets her way. Because of this, Braelyn is sometimes thought of as spoilt, as it usually works, but will yell loudly at anyone who says this to her face. If it's behind her back, watch out. She WILL get back at you, usually making you feel embarressed in front of someone you want to respect you.
History: Braelyn lived with her mother and father, Kaia and Trey, for almost 16 turns at Southern Hold. She has a sister, Hazel, and had a brother, Gavin, but he died from firehead when he was little. Braelyn worked as a drudge until she was 16.
Information about Braelyn's pets
Pet Name: Ryna
Pet Type: Fire Lizard
Appearance: Ryna is a medium size green fire lizard. She is lighter in color than more, almost lime green. Ryna's pretty for a Green fire lizard, tiny compared to a Gold, or even a Bronze.She has a small scar, tiny even, on the underside of a wing from where Braelyn didn't oil it enough, and has never forgiven herself for that. Besides that, Ryna's hide is perfect, shiny and smooth.
Personality: Ryna is very loyal to Braelyn. She is nice, but very wary of strangers. Ryna will attack strangers that she doesn't like unless told not to. She's very vain, though, wanting to be oiled and petted and fed all the time. She was found in a clutch of 6 on a beach (a green clutch, not gold) by Braelyn. The rest had been killed by tunnel snakes, and Braelyn thought that they were all dead. Just as she was about to leave, Ryna hatched, and Impression occured. She's more comfortable around people than she used to be, since going to the Weyr and being around them so very much. She will let people pet her, as long as Braelyn is there.
Second Pet Name: Onyx
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: Onyx has dark fur, almost blackish grey, hence the name Onyx. She was found as a kitten, wandering around outside the hold, and found by Braelyn. After much begging, her parents let her keep her, but she had to be left behind with her sister, Hazel (then eventually a friend, when Hazel herself was Searched), when Braelyn was found on Search, because of her "rivalry" with Ryna, her Green firelizard.
Personality: Onyx lives to be petted, but is very scared of people that are a lot bigger than her. She loves kids, and loves sitting in the sun. She doesn't like Ryna, Braelyn's firelizard, at all, since she loves attention and Ryna steals it. They don't get along, and because of this a very sad Braelyn had to make the decision to leave her behind after being Searched.
Third Pet Name: Chantry
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: Tan and white, this little male pup is covered in patches. Still tiny, this little one has just now been allowed to leave it's mother. It has tan ears and a tan tail, as well as tan forelegs. Mostly the rest of him is white except for some freckles and a patch here and there.
Personality: A puppy through and through, this little one is full of energy. He loves to play and cuddle and is always curious. Good at getting into trouble, this little guy is sure to be.
Information about Braelyn's dragon
Dragon Name: Gholith
Age: over 1 tur
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: One of the smallest greens, this little lady is such a dark color, she would get lost at night if not for her jeweled eyes. The deep forest green color is only broken by threads of grayish greens weaving along her neckridges and under her belly. Gholith is incredibly graceful both on land and air, her tiny body sliding into the smallest formations in order to flame thread. She is very fast and if you're not watching, you'd swear she wasn't there but a moment ago.
Personality: She is very quiet in a thoughtful way, awed by her sister's abilities to flirt openly. She is the one that listens to those who are troubled, helping them in the only way she can because she knows she doesn't have the answers. Her aloofness is abated during flights where she only begins to be like her sisters, although not nearly as vocal.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Gholith is a very capable and level headed dragon. She is very quick and graceful, though she is still rather quiet and a definate follower.
