Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Eryian, unlike her brother M'net, is just average in height, though the smallest of all her siblings standing at about five-foot-four or five. Her body isn't thin, but not fat either. Her features are soft and curvy. Turns of being sheltered haven't exactly given her much time to be very active to build much muscle. Everything else about her appearance is quite similar to her brother and are features that run through the family. She has thick, wavy, long chestnut hair that falls to the middle of her back. In the north she kept it down mostly, but she finds that too unbearable in the Arolos heat so she either keeps it up in a runners tail or a bun. She has expressive green eyes that sparkle when she smiles and very rarely ever show anger. Her facial features are small and pixy-like. Her nose is small and slightly upturned at the tip and there's a small smattering of freckles over her nose and the tops of her cheeks.
Personality: Even though she can't speak and can't hear it's clear in the way she carries herself and interacts with others that she's a very kind and nurturing individual, as well as very outgoing. She's always very calm and always seems to be smiling. And she's always willing to help. She wants nothing more then to help and to fit in. She hates it when people mistake her for being mentally altered when she just can't hear, but she understands very well. She can read and do math which are clear signs she's just as good as anyone else.
History: Eryian had a rather different and silent, literally, childhood. She was the youngest of eight children, born several Turns after her mother had decided to not have anymore. For her mother, Eryian was a late if life pregnancy that had been very difficult, a difficult pregnancy and a difficult labor. Eryian was born early and remained a rather sickly child, prone to ear infections, colds, and fevers. But mostly ear infections, each one worse then the last and with each infection her hearing seemed to get worse. When she was eight she became very seriously ill. Ear infections in both ears turned to a fever that racked her small body for days. The healer felt she would not recover but then her fever broke and she slowly began to get better. But it was very clear that something was wrong. She could barely hear anything, one would need to clap or shout sharply to get her attention. And it just got worse from there till her hearing was completely gone and she was plunged into a world of silence. She was devastated her family even more so. They were quite sure what to do with her.
Information about Eryian's pets
Pet Name: Dash
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Dash is a brown of obvious Callamere breeding – though not yet pushing the upper limits of size for his coloring, he certainly surpasses the limitations of wild breeding. His coloring is rather unique, almost a piebald effect as splotches of cinnamon mix with a rich, creamy tan all over his body in various swirled and splotches. The only variation from this is at the very tip of his muzzle, where his nostrils and jaw are hued a deep near-black brown, as though dipped in dark chocolate. In build he is slender but solid, walking the fine line between strength and grace, though it tends to make him less remarkable in form and function rather than more. His voice is a rich tenor, and he is quite a talker, prone to chittering and speaking animatedly with anyone who will listen.
Personality: Something that will become soon evident to just about anyone who meets this flit is just how bright he is, even by the standards of his breeding and color. Maybe he is aware of the great responsibility that he holds, but it is certain that he lives up to any and all expectations and duties given to him, working as hard as he can to overcome any obstacles in his way. He will pick up on tasks and commands very quickly, with a love of learning and an almost paternal need to be helpful, though it is never to draw attention to himself. He plays second fiddle, and enjoys that role – he is the backup, the support to the focus of his life: his pet. Loyal to a fault, he will never be found shirking any task given to him by the object of his greatest affection, and will even have a habit of taking initiative to organize and be helpful with things he knows needs to be done. A place for everything, and everything in its place … he is sure that, somehow, that’s the path to true happiness.
Second Pet Name: Baby
Pet Type: Green Wher
Appearance: The little green will roll from her egg the smallest in the clutch; cherish the moment, it will be the last time she is the littlest anything. She will soon grow to be easily one of the largest green whers in remembered history.
Personality: Can you say sweetheart? Good, fore that is what this big/little girl is. Her handler will have a rare jewel. Yes, she will be territorial and protective, but instead of warning of the intruder, this large lady will be found with the cornered victim demanding attention. The intruder/victim will be stuck in that corner until the green lady's chosen handler forces her to release them.

Personality: Oregeth is as delicate natured as she looks. She is very sensitive to others thoughts and feelings and always considerate. She will sometimes surprise by providing exactly the right words at the right time or simply by providing a warm nuzzle when her rider or friends need it. She is plainly good with others and will work well as part of a team, helping to hold people together when fractious situations arise.
