Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Cocidius is the shortest member of his family only measuring up to 5’5” with a stocky build that could probably stand to lose a couple of pounds. He’s got a healthy head of brown hair that in the sun shines with auburn highlights and grey-blue eyes. Cocidius is not fair, but neither does he ever tan very dark. He’s usually just lucky enough to get away from a day in the sun with just a slight burn. He’s has a 1 ˝ scar on his right cheekbone from an accident as a child. This scar is not usually noticeable, but he has a habit of fingering it when he is thinking or nervous.
Personality: Cocidius is a quiet adventuresome youth who’s always looking for the next thing to hold his interest. Many things capture his interest and he’ll give it a go for a time before losing interest. When he does find something that captures his interest and love, it’s hard to get him to move on to anything else. He’s always willing to do whatever it takes to help his team get a job done, and applies the same attitude to his friendships.
History: Born and raised on his family's small beasthold, Ŕrdan, located a bit north of Lemos Hold on the Northern continent, Cocidius was recently Searched and brought to Arolos to stand for Candidacy. Cocidius is the youngest of 6 children. He spent his childhood learning to work the land and how with hard work everything can work out. His father is a hard man for a child to understand, and though Cocidius has a great respect for what his father has done, Cocidius still believes that his father doesn’t understand him and never will. His mother is a softspoken woman who believes in supporting her children in whatever road they choose to take in life.
Information about C'dus's dragon
Dragon Name: Autunth
Age: 9 yrs
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Though he happens to be a short, squat brown- Autunth carries himself like a bronze. He is smaller than even the average brown dragon. Autunth’s coloring is pretty non-descript; overall a medium brown serves as his base color with it shading slightly to a darker brown on his belly and lighter tan on his wings. All in all, when grouped with his clutchmates he would be the last dragon remembered because of his appearance.
Personality: Autunth believes in the supremacy of ... himself! He’ll whisper dreams of glory into C’dus’ ear at night, and urges him to achieve in the slyest, smoothest ways a dragon can manage. Some day, this brown will fly his arrow in flight fast body, and catch a *Gold* -- then he will have conquered the Weyr, and then after that, ALL OF PERN!! Or so he hopes.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Autunth is very quick to understand things and will work hard to beat others in mastery of understanding. He has the power and speed to match his drive with his ability. But for all of his keenness and ambition, Autunth has a tragic flaw. Knowing when to *stop* pushing forwards. This brown will fly himself to the point of injury rather than ground himself during thread fall. He'll be the first to learn everything in lessons, and the first to hurt himself straining to over-come all of the *other* dragonets.
