Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Slender and of average height, this girl hovers at the edge of womanhood. Sandy brown hair falls in ringlets and curls over her shoulders, framing delicate features and a pert nose, her complexion is neither overly pale nor heavily tanned. Dark brown eyes peer from beneath arching brows. She as yet has little in the way of curves, but that is most likely only her age and lack of 'development'.
Personality: Somewhat quiet and soft-spoken, Irilia had a somewhat conservative upbringing, which is reflected in her tendency to expect men to be in charge, and sometimes, she does not stick up to them even when she should. In fact, she does not stick up for herself at all, even when she should; outwardly respectful, inwardly, she is shy and somewhat lacking in self-esteem.
History: Irilia's father is a journeyman weaver, posted to Telgar Hold for many turns. That is where he met her mother, the daughter of one of the Telgar cotholders. They have three children, of whom Irilia is the youngest, and the only girl. She is, thus, utterly spoiled, and the apple of her father's eye.

Appearance: A smallish, dark colored green, even in color over her entire form, with slightly shorter wings than average. An unusually angular face gives her a somewhat sharp appearance.
Personality: An extremely friendly firelizard...she prefers Iri's company, but failing that, will settle for anyone willing to give her an eyeridge scritch. Or, better yet, a treat. She seldom wanders far, and would basically not hurt a fly unless proddy, when she can become rather snippy.

Weyr of Origin: Arolos

He has an ability to move his body in ways a lot of dragons would be incapable of...or not brave enough...not everything he tries works, but he will get better at figuring it out in time...he could be a strong leader, if he doesn't injure himself too badly.
