Name Pronounced: jah-rin
Appearance: What to say about Jírin. He is one built rider. From being a miner for the start of his life, and then becoming a rider, he just added more and more muscle. He has medium brown hair that he doesnít let get too long. He stands at 6í2Ē. He is tan from his turns at Arolos. He has a great smile and strong jaw. He is often found with a shadow of a beard on his face. He has nice dark brown eyes that are often shining with thoughts of trouble. All in all he is a well built man. He does have a few small thread scores on his body but they have faded since they were not bad scores. He is often seen with a smile on his face. He does have more body hair than he wishes and would have liked to have been one of the men that didn't get a lot of body hair.
Personality: Jírin is a smartass plain and true. He is best described as a joker, and well, he is good at it. He really needs to learn to shut his mouth, but he hasnít learned so his mouth gets him in trouble. He is nice though but it is covered up by is annoying jokes. He has never found one person he has stayed with for a long time, but he believes he will find someone for him. He loves searching for candidates and that is one of his favorite hobbies. He is helpful and offers his services for free to any who ask, be it a non-rider or a rider who doesnít want to do something themselves. He will give people lifts to places, taken messages to people, and other small things riders can do. He knows that his faults will get him no higher in rank, but what can he expect for a bluerider. When he was younger he didnít think he was handsome, but when he got to the Weyr he found that women liked his looks, and even men. At first the thought of men liking his looks scared him, but when he spent his first goldflight with another man who showed him the other side of love. The fact that he knows he his handsome makes his ego bigger, so when someone pops his ego he mopes around for a while until someone lifts it back up.

Information about J'rin (Janrin)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Rinth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Rinth is beauty in Jírinís eyes. He is a soft robin egg blue on his body that is interrupted by swirls of darker blues. His wings are midnight blue with light spots on them in odd places, just like stars. His belly is a royal blue that goes from his bottom jaw to the tip of his tail. His neck ridges are an ashy blue that really stand out next to his wings. His size is quiet impressive since he is bordering the size of a small brown and almost has enough stamina to stay the whole fall. His wings are huge for his body, which makes carrying a load of candidates back to the Weyr to stand for a clutch easy.
Personality: Rinth is a helpful blue. He looks down on his riders jokes but he canít stop his rider from putting his foot in his mouth. He loves searching like his rider. He has found that he has a real talent for it. His life would be great though if his rider would just straighten up and stop being a fool, but he loves him with his life. When he fights thread his is all business and tries his hardest to get as much thread as he can and not get hurt. When he does get hurt, he nearly goes crazy from being inactive. It takes all that Jírin has to keep him from reinjuring himself, for trying to get back into the air sooner than his body can take it.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: He can last longer than in fall then smaller blues. He lacks the ability to turn quickly which means he wonít be able to catch some of the smaller greens that are really able to maneuver.
