Name Pronounced: Suh-DOCK
Appearance: When you look at C’doc, it’s hard to class him within any of the stereotypes a Weyr has. Of course it’s easy when you see his knots, but when those are absent it gets harder! Yes, he has that determined, cocky look in his eyes that is common amongst bronzeriders. He does seem to carry himself in such a manly, dignified way. But there is something about his features that just yells sweetness. He seems so huggable, kind, caring. Such a sweet man would sooner fit in with the bluerider stereotype, or that of a laidback brownrider.
Personality: C’doc lives for himself and his dragon alone. Everything he does seems to be calculated back to his own happiness. He wants things his way and he wants them quick. Yes, he can be caring, protective, a good listener, but that is mostly just because then he can expect payback.
History: Born and raised at Benden Weyr, Caradoc has never been any of the crèche mother’s favourites. They could see how even as a child he would get his little group of followers to do exactly what he wanted to. It was shrugged of as childish selfishness, though, something that he would grow out of once he got older. It seemed to be that way too, because as he got older Caradoc understood you could get a lot more with pleasantries then you could with commands. He became kind, sweet and adorable even. He was soon the idolised leader of his own little pack.
Information about C'doc's dragon
Dragon Name: Jinth
Age: 10 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Flamespires
Appearance: Jinth is on the smaller scale for a bronze. He is slender rather then muscular. His long neck and tail, compared with his sleek body give him a more snake-like appearance. With a narrow head and an overall build just as thin, he is a bit of an odd sight for a bronze. Sure, he’s not ugly, which dragon is? He just looks a bit different. With a fairly normal wingspan he is still an impressive sight in the air!
Personality: This bronze is very much like his rider, only in reverse. Outwardly he can be arrogant, sarcastic and snappy. Jinth doesn’t hesitate to comment on people’s behaviour if he thinks it is silly. Other dragons can count on the same treatment, after all he is a bronze and he knows best. He is confident in his own abilities and proud of them.
Weyr of Origin: Benden
Abilites and weaknesses: Jinth is deadly serious in fall, maybe a little too serious in fact. He won’t ever let a single strand go past him unsigned, endangering those around him at times when he really should let a more agile green or blue give chase. When such behaviour occurs, he has to be called back by C’doc or the leaders of his wing immediately, before accidents happen. His strongest point also is his greatest weakness.
