Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Dartkien is well built from turns of working in the mines. He stands at almost 6 feet and has dark tan skin from the southern sun. His dark brown hair is kept shaved short due to the heat. He has striking blue eyes that vary slightly in color deepening depending on his moods and are slightly angled. Dartkien would be considered handsome if he hadnít seen himself always covered in coal dust. On the right side of his chest is a distinctive birthmark in the rough shape of a redfruit.
Personality: Before Arolos Dartkien grew up and hardened at a young age with heavy labor forced upon him most of his life. He doesn't have friends, there's no time with so much work needing to be done but this doesnít mean he isnít capable of making friends. Heís quiet and withdrawn from not ever knowing anyone trustworthy. This makes him very self sufficient and more likely to figure out a problem himself then ask for help. What little he does know of his parents is that they were dragonriders at Telgar in the north. A slight curiosity does exist to find out more but he mainly occupies his thoughts with plans of leaving Wabonel Hold.
History: Born Pre-pass -2.08.02
Information about Dr'kien's pets
Pet Name: Mirik
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: The smoky blue firelizard has grown into a decently solid flit. Mirik is a bit bigger then your average wild flit but not big enough to rival a Callamere for size. He has a darker shade of blue running down his muzzle, back and tail. He has leaned out from the pudgey baby he used to be into a well muscled flit. He never quite filled in all the way still having a more lean and long appearance.
Personality: Mirik has developed into quite the clown and mischief maker. He will do flips and little tricks for entertainment as long as he can make someone smile or laugh. He loves cheering people up and showing off. He's developed quite the surprising habit of stealing meatrolls and hiding them all over Dartkien's room. In a pillow, a boot, even tucked in a friendly sleeping dragon's wing, Mirik will hide his edible treasures anywhere he can and always shares his findings with his other flit friends.
Information about Dr'kien's dragon
Dragon Name: Longath
Age: 8 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: StormStars Hatching 8.14.04.30
Personality: Large even among bronzes, Longath will be a natural leader. From Hatching, he will lead others in feats of high courage and daring - sometimes too much so! It is likely that the Weyrling Masters would prefer *not* to have most of Longath's class led out of the Barracks and into the danger of Southern forest, or into the lake before they've learnt to swim, or on a million other dangerous little adventures. Reluctant participants will be challenged and even bullied along on occasion Ė you don't want to come? You think it's dangerous? What are you, some kind of coward?
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Being a natural leader with his courage and daring this young dragon used to believe he was above the orders of the Weyrling Masters. Now fully grown and mature he respectfully follows any orders from his superiors even if personally he thinks there is a better way, but only if he was leader. Longath pushes those around him to work as hard as he does and always puts out his best, trying to catch the eye of his superiors and prove that he deserves to be among them. The bronze's stubborn drive and hold him back, sometimes pushing too hard. Longath's ever present love of golds keeps him chasing them through the skies and seems to take presidence in the young dragon's mind.
