Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: She is pretty in a rather understated way, and might be described as plain by those who like stunning features or classic beauty. Some may not even notice her among all the others in the Dining Hall or Lower Caverns--mostly because she's usually at a table that's just empty enough to give her some space. If they did notice her, they probably wouldn't look twice because she is very, very quiet. As in, hardly-speaks-unless-she-has-to quiet.
Personality: She is quiet, even with close friends. However, she is not shy--she can actually be quite long-winded when she wants. She also tends to feel emotions very quickly and can't always put them in words, which both contributes to her quietness and makes her quick to act. Sometimes she forgets about conversations, either because she's just not used to talking or because Zedorianth butts in and monopolizes her attention. Mostly it's the latter.
History: Gisellaine lived a normal life as a cotholder near Ruatha; not rich, but not poor either. Her family were mostly farmers, which meant that Thread was exceptionally dangerous to their way of life.
Information about Gisellaine's dragon
Dragon Name: Zedorianth
Age: 9 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: Zedorianth is average sized for a green, but her shade is what catches people's eyes. She is the exact shade of Gisellaine's eyes--a deep, tropical green. The shade darkens gradually from deep green on her body to a very dark green at her wingtips. Gisellaine's family was quite surprised at the Hatching to see such an aesthetically perfect match with their daughter. Over her seven Turns fighting Thread, she has gotten the usual Thread scars on her back and tail, as well as several larger scars on her wings.
Personality: Gisellaine calls her "Zedo" most of the time, using her full name only at introductions. She's definitely the more talkative half of the pair, and is misleadingly childish and blunt. It makes her quite warm and exuberant, but most people take a while to get used to her and generally find her obnoxious until then.
Weyr of Origin: Benden
Abilites and weaknesses: She is fast and maneuverable, as is typical for a green, but tires easily and pays little attention to anything but Gisellaine and the wingleader while chasing down Thread. Gisellaine's the more watchful of their surroundings in Fall, but Zedorianth's lack of caution has caused consistent problems at the Weyrs they were at before Arolos.
