Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Not too tall, I'vin is 5'8" and of a slender, yet sturdy build. He has developed muscles from being forced to do the obstacle course several times for being irritable and irresponsible during candidacy. I'vin has ear length black hair and dark blue eyes that sparkle whenever he is anxious. He has a score mark on his left shoulder from the weyrling accident. He has a tattoo of Ciroth on his left shoulder and takes pride in it's accuracy.
Personality: I'vin is pessimistic most of the time due to the tragedy surrounding his life. He loves his Ciroth and takes any advantage to spend time with his dragon to scratch those ever seeking eye ridges. He loves the orange color that Ciroth's eyes become when he is happy and is normally only happy when his dragon is. He enjoys the partners he gets from the flights Ciroth wins, but would prefer a weyrmate just for him. The only problem with that is he has his eye on a new girl every couple sevendays or so. He loves to swim when Ciroth does and enjoys grooming his big blue. The only thing he doesn't like are the days they boil the numbweed to make the miraculous salve so Ciroth and him make sure to make themselves scarce those days.
History: Born in a herding hold, Irvin was taught to watch for danger at a young age. His mother died when he was aged 8 turns by the claws of a wild wherry, leaving him and his aging father to watch over their herd.
Information about I'vin's pets
Pet Name: Sasha
Pet Type: beige canine
Appearance: A black coat with a predominating light beige underlying layer of fur gives off the appearance of brown on black. Sasha has a notch in her left ear from a fight with another canine when she was one turn old.
Personality: A smart canine (as far as canines go) she does tricks to please I'vin and anyone else who's upset. Sasha generally likes everyone, the only people she doesn't like are people who she can instinctively tell are out to hurt her owner. One of the ways she shows I'vin she understands him (when he's sad or angry) is by closing her jaws over his hand and biting down gently to make him forget his troubles.
Second Pet Name: Tiamat
Pet Type: green firelizard
Appearance: Tiamat is a somewhat small, lanky green due to constant exercise. She is quite young, only about a month old and has a lot of energy to keep her moving almost constantly. She is a plain color green, like a crayon, with only a tiny spot of yellowish green on her chest. She has a long graceful neck and tail, perfect for twining with those males when comes time for her to rise.
Personality: She grows up with a blue dragon to love her, and now she is turning into quite a flirt, even for such a young green. She is a chatter box, and that sometimes gets on I'vin's nerves, but he loves her all the same. She swims, but doesn't like it too much, only doing so to get fish which her pet refuses to store for her.
Information about I'vin's dragon
Dragon Name: Ciroth
Age: 7 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): StormHearts
Appearance: Ciroth is a large blue as far as blues go but doesn't like the attention that comes along with it. A bright, sky blue color, he appears to reflect the baby blue sky he so enjoys flying under. Ciroth has a 2 meter score along his right side from a bad lacing in weyrling training and is missing a small part of his right wing tip which is slowly healing do to an infection from going between right after the incident. Any new healing only being noticed after several sevendays.
Personality: When he's happy, his eyes are almost always seen swirling gently in their more green than blue contentment. He basically is the dragon version of I'vin and is extremely protective of his rider. Anyone that is formally introduced to Ciroth (Seer- oth)is a permanent friend so long as they remain so to his. Ciroth likes the greens and is a tremendous flirt with no problem finding a willing mate though he longs for a mate that is all his and his rider's own. He loves fighting thread and swimming, and feels that he'd make a great searchrider someday.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: Is the third fastest from his clutch and is very maneuverable during Fall and rarely gets scored. Has less than perfect distance judgment which caused the accident during weyrlinghood.
