Name Pronounced: Ch-ar-nee
Appearance: Ch'arney's appearance follows most stereotypes. His mane of curly red hair brings out the bright emerald green colour of his eyes and seems to make the freckles on his face and arms just stand right out there. He's five-foot-six in height and has a very slender physique, holding little muscle to his name. No matter what he's doing, he always seems to have a look of mischief about him, as if he's the perfect kid to weasel his way into some sort of trouble.
Personality: A bright young lad who is full of energy and spunk. Ch'arney can't stay depressed for too long and keeps himself constantly occupied with activities that he likes. If he's stuck doing something that he doesn't like, you'll find him making a game out of it or pretending that he's doing something else. Sweeping the Dining Hall turns into oiling the hide of a big, bronze dragon. Helping around in the Stores is quickly turned into a game of speed. This young man has the wonderful gift of flexibility, being able to work in any situation. This may provide for future leadership abilities, but only time will tell that. He can turn any stressful situation into something fun, he can always seem to make your troubles go straight away and he's always willing to just talk.
History: Ch'arney is the youngest son of three in a family stemming out of Arolos Hold. Originally, Chvarney's family lived in Igen Hold, in the North, where the Tannercraft brought in the money that kept them all fed. His older brothers were always the best at everything and even as a young child, Chvarney tried to strive and be just like them in every aspect so that maybe his parents would pay a little more attention to him. In the end, his whole world came tumbling down when a horrible accident in the workplace took his father away from him forever.
Information about Ch'arney's pets
Pet Name: Zavi (deceased)
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: A slender, very toned fire-lizard of the most beautiful shades of blue. Every shade of blue covers this little lizard's hide, from the darkest black-blues to the lightest sky blues, and the pattern is so perfectly blended together that it makes him look simply dazzling.
Personality: Given to Chvarney shortly before his father's demise, the fire-lizard is another treasure that reminds the young Candidate of his father. Chvarney will say that this little blue's personality is exactly like that of his father's, in that he is persistent and never gives up on anything that he is trying to do. He used to believe that Zavi was the spirit of his father in another body, but he has long since given up such beliefs. He uses Zavi to keep the memory of his father fresh.
Second Pet Name: Pirza
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: This tiny blue is without a doubt gorgeous, from the moment of his birth every facet of him speaking of good breeding and a natural grace. His hide is amazingly soft to the touch, and hued the most delicate and pleasing shade of gentle baby blue. A darker shade is finely dappled over his wingsails, and faint highlights of subtly darker and lighter hues mark his shoulders and continue down along his belly. In form he is notably slender, with long, slim limbs and wings, and a delicately crafted head. The grace with which he moves is remarkable, each movement and action delicate and fluid, which combined with his slimness sometimes lends him an almost effeminate air. His voice, however, will run contrary, for it is deep and rich, and is almost always used to voice a soothing, seductive croon.
Personality: Without a doubt, this blue was born to capture the heart of every green alive, and he is quite aware of this mission. Barring his pet, he ignores all male companionship, whatever the species, and dotes on anything female as though he has at last found true love. Be it flit, dragon, human, or even the occasional wher, he lets no pretty girl go overlooked or unattended to, and he will go to almost heroic lengths to win affection. A new shiny for this lovely green lady? Why of course, he'll find one right away. This one is hungry? Well, we can't have that, now can we? All of this will get him into quite a lot of trouble rather early in life, for he possesses no sense of moderation, and will soon find himself rundown and exhausted trying to juggle so many lovely ladies, trying to ensure that he is foremost in each of their hearts – and trying to ensure that they don't find out about each other, as well.
Information about Ch'arney's dragon
Dragon Name: Kiekith
Age: 2 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Weyrling Wing (Under 16)
Appearance: Kiekith enters places with the best bounding leap that can be managed. The normal prancing steps show an excessive energy, suggesting he'd rather pounce upon some little animal. Not quite proper
Personality: This brown has developed a somewhat normal personality despite the oddball collection of characteristics -- mostly that means he won't ever mistake himself for a cat. Still there's a definite intelligence behind his playful mannerism and should anybody look for explanations they'd find reason about everything Kiekith does. It's just that not everything will be entirely accurate since certain pounce seem completely random.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
