Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: The first thing that will probably always catch anyone's attention when they first meet G'del is his height. This man is anything but short at well over six foot. But that first impression aside, there is his bulk. Riders are usually muscular, but this one seems to have been blessed with a little extra brawn. So then, finally the person meeting G'del will get to his loks. After the issue of height and size are put aside, the close-cropped dark hair and wide, dark eyes are quite nice in the tanned face. With a nose that his been repositioned by one too many fists in the face, G'del has a ragged sort of charm in his face, but hey, he doesn't _need_ astonishing good looks with the body he's got. He isn't unhandsome, he just isn't overly so.
Personality: So he's got brawns, does he have brains? The answer is yes. Unfortunately, he's got them, and in force. Master of manipulation, he'll get himself in the middle of anything, be it a relationship, underhanded dealing, or conversation, if he thinks it'll benefit him. Talented at bending anyone to his will for at least a little while, he nevertheless is a popular man among the ladies, and admittedly, a few males. Brawn and brain work together to make him a good adversary or your best friend, it just depends on who you are.
History: Weyrbred, G'del was always in the middle of _something_. Natorious at a young age for his propensity to fight, he earned many a bloody nose in the time before his Impression of Deltrath. After that Impression, things slacked off long enough for the pair to survive Weyrling training before brain and brawn with the addition of dragon went into action. Since then he's made himself a frequent part of anything he can that is in the least bit of interest to him. That tendency got him into trouble with a young woman named Sage, who he had a prolonged relationship with and who, it is possible, gave birth to his child. Now returning from time spent away, he has no idea what he faces in trying to win her back. He just knows that he's going to try and damn anyone who gets in his way. Things have changed now and he's given up on her, instead intent to find someone who will give him a chance.
Information about G'del (deceased)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Deltrath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Deltrath is a deep muddy brown. Average size for his color, he is unremarkable excluding the Threadscores. This brown maintains a steady pattern of Threadscores earned in the first couple Turns of flying before rider and dragon finally learned not to screw around during fall. Other than that? He's pretty ordinary
Personality: Deltrath is unremarkable in looks, but not mind. Scarily like his rider, he'll make sure to pass on anything interesting he thinks G'del might enjoy. He'll insinuate himself into any conversation, and if he can, idlely drop in whatever his rider thinks he should to the other dragons. He breeds roomer and discord, though he honestly doesn't know any better...or so he claims.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Prone to "dropping" comments that shouldn't be dropped, and showing off far too blatantly. Perhaps his major redeeming asset is once in a while his since of what's right and wrong asserts itself over his rider.
