Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Dalien is a slim built young man. It is obvious that he is used to working outside however as there is a tan to his skin, and a few freckles that cover his shoulders. He has short cropped mousy brown hair that when ruffled always seems to drop back into the same shape. His blue eyes are bright and show the depth of interest in the mind behind them. He is reasonably well muscled, especially across the shoulders from drawing in the fishing nets, but he does look leaner than most fishermen as though not really built for the trade.
Personality: Dalien is an easily approachable young man, although there is something about him that will suggest that he will want to know everything you can teach him. He has a thirst for learning and is an eager student, asking questions and clarifying what he is told. His pleasant manner and friendly demeanour allow him to mingle in most circles, although his ability to offer information is sometimes seen as irksome. He knows when he is starting to annoy people however, and will start his nervous twitch of brushing his fingers across his nose.
History: Was age 16 at 8.11.10.01
Information about D'lien's dragon
Dragon Name: Thomath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: A dull brown hide covers this dragon from the end of his snout to the tip of his tail. Polishing, cleaning, scrubbing and preening: none of these will buff this dragon up as smart as you might like. It is as if he was destined to look dirty. His hide is just one of many things that give him a personality to look at even before he talks to you. His eyes are just a little too close together for an average dragon, and he does not stand straight enough for some people’s liking. His right eye ridge is slightly higher than the left if you look close enough and his nose is a touch crooked. Before these things are pointed out, the casual observer might miss them, thinking that he merely looks approachable, down to earth and something like the stuffed dragon that they had as a child.
Personality: His personality fits his looks well. He is truly approachable, relaxed and easy going, happy in any company and prepared to be open when talking to strangers. This confident fellow will gain many friends without trying too hard, especially amongst the ladies. He is a true charmer and has a quick wit when it comes to flirting: do not be surprised if he tends to win flights.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Thomath has immense energy and can fly longer and harder thanmost browns. He is not the smartest of movers however and can be a touch clumsy on occasion. He would certainly never make point of any wing.
