Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Cameta was disappointed when she stopped growing at 5' 4" but her lack of height never affected her personality. She is not the most attractive girl because she has small breasts, but she has a small, full lips, and deep brown eyes. She has a rather large nose, but not unattractively so. She has medium-length plain brown hair that is usually pulled in one braid down her back. Her slight features and her light skin make her seem delicate, but her hands show calluses and she is lean and strong from working for years with runners. She rarely dresses up except for Gathers or other special events and will wear whatever is comfortable and practical.
Personality: Cameta has self-taught patience from years of working with the most challenging of her family's runners and her fire-lizard that makes it seem unusual that she has such a temper, but when she loses her temper, run for your weyr. She is hardworking and tries hard to gain praise from her elders. She can't stand people that are spoiled and dont do things for themselves and those are the people she will most often lose her temper towards. She has had very little love experience which comes from living in a small hold, but she will not take nonsense flirting and doesn't do much flirting herself. She tends to be bossy and enjoys being in positions of authority. She usually thinks things through and when she doesn't she usually gets someone in trouble. She enjoys teaching and has a lovely soprano.
History: Cameta grew up in a runnerhold. Her parents Mavra and Bentin enouraged her to explore all of her options and not just settle down and marry like most holder girls. Mavra was an apprentice harper but left to marry Bentin when she was 15 and taught Cameta all she knew. Cameta's lovely soprano made it an option for her to be a harper, but she never did. Cameta was the only girl of 5 children, the second youngest, and a twin. Her older brothers either helped with the runnerhold or went to weyrs and impressed while her younger brother was apprenticed to the Harper Hall. Her twin brother K'shen impressed a brown dragon and is a wingrider for Ista. As young children the twins would often be found together helping with the runners. When she turned 12, Cameta's parents gave her the options of becoming a harper or helping with the runners. Her brother gave her a fire-lizard egg, a brown whom she impressed and named Tahoi. She stayed and helped with the runners for six turns.
Information about Cameta's pets
Pet Name: Tahoi
Pet Type: Brown Flit
Appearance: Tahoi is a brown fire-lizard. He was given to Cameta by her brother K'shen, a wingrider of Ista, as an egg. Cameta was initially thrilled as the small hatchling was clearly a handsome fellow, but was later discouraged when the young fire-lizard began to think of himself as handsome. He is quite handsome with no dainty features and is well-shaped. His wingtips will sometimes show a small amount of bronze, especially when he is happy.
Personality: Tahoi is generally obnoxious and always wants to be the object of everyone's affection. He is constantly being noisy and rude and even the usually patient Cameta will often make up 'errands' so he will keep out of her way. He will take trips away from Cameta at random, especially when their is another fire-lizard preparing to fly. He will try to fly any kind of fire-lizard but he clearly prefers it when he gets a gold. He is especially put off when another fire-lizard gets what he wants, and tries to act like as much of a bronze as possible.
Second Pet Name: Dulce
Pet Type: Green Flit
Appearance: She is a very small flit, even for a green. She is a darker shade of green and looks out of proportion because her wings seem so much larger than the rest of her.
Personality: Dulce is the clingyist flit ever. She will almost never leave Cameta, and Tahoi is usually the one that brings Dulce food. She is timid and shy and usually curls up in Cameta's pocket, often scaring people by emerging at the most unhelpful of times.
Information about Cameta's dragon
Dragon Name: Izellath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: That dragon, upon first glance appears to be a dark bodied, and light bellied, making her a rather usual, and straight forward colored dragon.
Personality: Unfortunately Izellath's attitude reflects her close appearance far more than it does the uniform and simple appearance. Izellath is a Green, with a captial G''. In every sense of the word she epitomizes the stereotypical green and then takes it a step forward, as if she can't be outdone.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
