Name Pronounced: Hid-drawn
Appearance: Standing alone or at a distance, H'dron appears to be a man of an increasingly imposing stature. However when up close or in a crowd that perception immediately changes to that of a welcoming, magnetic feel that is a direct reflection of the soul. His long, narrow limbs, taught chest and broadening shoulders add a towering effect to his already impressive height for the average rider, standing at a slim 6'3" and apparently, not the mention thankfully, finished growing.
Personality: Of the more amiable collection of riders, there is little to be said of H'dron's temper and much to be said of his wit. He's one who's forever cracking a joke or smile at someone, adding a snarky comment here or there and is generally someone who delights in the simple social pleasures of life. A charming, engaging sort of young man, he's the type who finds common ground among just about any company and feels just as comfortable talking with them as he does with childhood friends.
History: C'dron/Cadron- father, 46, blue Direnth
Information about H'dron's dragon
Dragon Name: Oradanth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: A shower of faded periwinkle dots the wings and shoulders of this fair sized blue dragon. A fair contrast to his supposedly uniform navy coloration, Oradanth is a pleasantly shaded sight for any set of eyes. Unlike his rider, he is no imposing specimen no matter where he is. His carefully rounded haunches, finely arched, sinuous neck and elongated tail soften any jagged look he might bestow otherwise, and by the way he carries himself its evident he's all male all the time. Not the largest dragon of his color, he could only ever be described as 'good' because he's dead on average; no sense of green-like delicacy by a small stature and no brown-like bulk by being over-sized.
Personality: Nothing short of fabulous, Oradanth's perception of himself is just as charismatic as his rider's... only Oradanth has more sense. A calm, relatively introverted example of blue dragon, if H'dron's temper is minimal than this dragon is permanently sedated. He's quietly contented with sunning on a ledge or cuddling a green than he is zipping about the Weyr like a love-struck weyrling. He's his rider's grounding force and tranquil presence that is just as peaceful as a spring's morning or quiet country creek. A brave soul, however, he fears nothing and faces Threadfall like a mid-evil warrior about to charge valiantly into battle.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: While Oradanth is a good sized blue he's a bit short in the stamina department but has the agility his color permits to zip about in both flight and 'Fall. Also, his weakness for compliments by greens tends to make him a bit vulnerable to manipulation, especially if the green realizes what control she has over him.
