Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: G'wyn is tall at six feet and lean, almost emaciated-looking. He has brown eyes and his hair is dark-- just what color it is, is unknown, as he keeps it almost shaved, only about an eighth of an inch of hair coloring his scalp. His hairline is unusually low, curving in deep over his temples, and coming down closer than normal to his eyebrows in front-- this may be why he keeps it so ruthlessly short.
Personality: G'wyn is very much a staunch believer in honor, glory, and dedication to duty. His Archivist training instilled in him infinite patience with tedium, meticulous attention to detail, and a phenomenal memory-- and encyclopedic store of information to draw from.
History: G'wyn, born Gerwyn, had a happy, normal childhood as the only son of a Steward and his wife, until the afore-mentioned childhood scuffle that almost ended his life before it had scarcely begun.
Information about G'wyn's pets
Pet Name: Kymbell
Pet Type: Firelizard- Bronze
Appearance: A Callamere, Kymbell is a large, healthy flit in the prime of life.
Personality: Dutiful as his Pet, but far more fun loving. Kymbell is sociable, eager to make friends and run little errands.
Second Pet Name: Helyn
Pet Type: Firelizard- Green
Appearance: Helyn is the blackened, dark green of deepest thickets and evergreens in winter. Only on her underbelly does her color lighten, to a blue-tinged pine green.
Personality: Helyn is vain, selfcentered, fussy, and utterly adored by Kymbell, Girrard, Bremoth and G'wyn. Which adoration might explain the fact that she's vain, self-centered and fussy. She is unshakably convinced that the lives of all four illustrious males revolve around her and her tiny dictates.
Third Pet Name: Girrard
Pet Type: Firelizard-- Blue
Appearance: A Callamere, like his clutchmates Kymbell and Helyn, Girrard is a glorious shade of blue, as if he'd been dyed in one of those achingly pure blue autumn days in the North. There are no faded or darkened spots on him-- just one clear, azure shade from nose to tail tip.
Personality: Poor Girrard-- he's loved just as much as the other two flits by G'wyn, but the blue has a bit of an inferiority complex all the same. Helyn takes advantage of his submissive personality to boss him about unmercifully. Kymbell alternately allies with him against Helyn, or competes with him for her attention, depending on her state of season.
Information about G'wyn's dragon
Dragon Name: Bremoth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: In color, he's a rich, even, classic bronze, and is as classically proportioned. Large, and looks at first glance as if he were the solemn pater familias of the Stormhearts.
Personality: Bremoth is not only a constant companion and comfort to his rider-- he's also a constant trial. It's said that opposites attract, and that's certainly true of this pair. Bremoth is loud, boisterous, happy-go-lucky, and more than a little indolent.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: The only thing Bremoth takes with total, complete seriousness and concentration is Threadfighting. In that, he's as precise and hidebound as his rider. An excellent wing pair, none need fear getting "friendly fire" from them-- but whether or not they have leadership potential, only time will tell.
