Name Pronounced: Janno
Appearance: Janno is just hitting his growth spurt and is that slightly thin and lanky looking stage where he is not completely coordinated. He is a good looking lad, taking after his father J'shar in that respect but his sandy blonde hair started darkening as he got a little older. Its approaching a dark blonde brown and there is every indicator that it might end up a darker brown. and it has a tendency to go a bit messy. He has the green eyes of his father and mother and an easy grin. From the way he is sprouting up he will probably reach about 6ft tall, but will never be of a massive build - he will be athletic and wiry more than over muscled.
Personality: Janno is a friendly youngster who likes other people and generally gets on with people. He was fairly well behaved as a child but now is starting to get the adolescent interest in a bit of rebellion. He likes excitement, he loves anything to do with flying and speed. At the moment, he is the one likely to organise "adventures". He is conscious that he is the son of a bronzerider and a goldrider and occassionally waves that around - usually as a bluff to imply that it's perfectly fine that he and his group of friends are doing something, no REALLY.
History: Janno is the eldest son of bronzerider J'shar and Halle, the first Arolos goldrider. He was one of a set of premature twins and Halshar, his twin unfortunately died. Janno survived and thrived at Arolos. His mother Halle went to Ista and against J'shars wishes took their children with her, and though he visited after a while, they made it difficult for him to see them. Things came to a bit of a head and J'shars friend K'ligh engineered the return of the children to Arolos where they were taken care of with the other creche kids and became weyrbrats. Miraculously, Janno has survived all the various disasters of Arolos Weyr intact. He considers himself a bit of a veteran of exciting stories and will often relate a bit of Arolos history to anyone who would listen. He's perfectly happy being weyrbred, and has in all had a happy childhood with regular contact with his father and regards Wygelle as his principle mother now. His half brothers and sisters are his family and he gets on well enough with them all but has been looking forward to turning twelve and becoming a candidate so he can do his own thing. So far he hasn't done anything to outrageous or even had much in the way of near death experiences. But then he' only just starting off as a Candidate - there's plenty of time!
Information about J'anno's dragon
Dragon Name: Dewinth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Personality: Dewinth is going to be a compact white (bronze), not overly small by any means but densely packed with muscle. He'll be a very good looking bronze, with well proportioned features and a real winning way with the greens and golds as he is a consummate charmer. He'll have a tendency to swagger just a little if he thinks the greens are looking! He's a bit of a daredevil, a risk taker and an adrenalin junkie in a lot of ways, and has no hesitation lunching himself into action with probably less forethought than needed - at least at the start.
