Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Having just hit a growth spurt, Grendil stands at around 5'11" and still growing. He is lightly tanned, with a case of acne that centers on his nose and forehead, probably due to the fact that he only washes his dark brown hair when reminded to. His eyes are a clear hazel. He has an average enough look to him, with a nicely porportioned nose and nothing insightly save his acne. When he smiles he can almost look boyishly handsome.
Personality: Grendil doesn't get along too well with many people, probably due to his mood swings. Of course he is a teenager. Most times he can be nice enough and actually does have a tremendous sense of humor when he isn't in a bad mood.Bur other times he can be a pain in the arse and annoy people to the point that they have to walk away before they slap him. How does he achieve such a high state of annoyance? By pointing out every little thing you do incorrectly. He'll nitpick every little thing you say and always find at least one thing to corrrect you on. One of the reasons he's so good at catching mistakes is that he memorizes names and faces so well. Grendil is more a follower then a leader. If he's with a group of strangers he'll just smile and nod alot. Right after Impressing Johireth he was injured and came down with a fever that wiped his memory. Now he is very childlike and innocent. He and Joh should be in a fighting wing by now, but they are not ready for such responsibility.
History: Gr'dil was born the son of G'eriak, a blue Fort rider. He never found out who his mother was, and frankly, was never interested to. He has always just let things happen to him, and eventually, at age 14 he found himself at Arolos. Not really protesting, he soon found himself at the Weyr that his father seems to think is so much better then Fort. After standing his first Hatching and not Impressing, Gr'dil decided to buckle down and really try. He was helping some other candidates try and feed their flits when they discovered a nest of flit eggs, intact and just Hatching. He Impressed two of them, Seaspray and Sandy. After he Impressed his dear Johireth he took ill with a fever and lost his memory. He hasn't ever recovered any of it and it has caused the pair to fall behind the rest in their training.
