Name Pronounced: jair-us
Appearance: J'rous has multi-coloured eyes; but they're primarily stormcloud grey, which gives others the impression that he's thinking about something constantly; and that he knows more than you think. His hair is a brownish-burgandy; that he usually keeps in a runnertail, though he'll wear it loose occasionally. He has a scar just under his left eye; as a result of a fight he had a couple of years ago, and a small dragon tattoo on his right shoulder.
Personality: Easy going for the most part, J'rous doesn't like violence; and will back away from most fights, though once his tolerance has reached its limit he can fight with the best of them. Once a loner, his being bonded to Tann cured him of that soon enough. It's really difficult to remain alone, when your dragon is asking every person he sees awkward and often embarrassing questions, though thank Faranth that Tann grew out of that. Sort of. J'rous is also deathly afraid of the dark, due to an accident in his early childhood that happened at night.
History: Born in a small village outside Pyran Hold, he was moved to and raised in Pyran with his father; after the death of his mother when he was 5. He does not remember much of what happened, the more traumatic memories being blocked out, but he does remember her going into the forest at night; and never coming out again. Growing up without a mother was not easy, as he was constantly picked on by the other kids; having to endure their endless stories about why his mother was gone.
Information about J'rous's dragon
Dragon Name: Tannebauth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Cobalt blue for the most part, his belly is a soft; powdery blue, while the undersides of his wings are only slightly lighter than the rest of him. His hide is smooth to the touch, though it looks rough from a distance, enabling it to be easily cleaned. It was thinner than most dragon's skin when he hatched, and easily torn, so great care had to be taken when cleaning it.
Personality: Tann has a natural curiosity about him, and often embarrasses his lifemate be asking awkward questions. Both of them having poetic minds, they are sometimes found sitting at the Rim, just looking at the moons and talking with each other.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Due to his bond with J'rous, Tannebauth is afraid of the dark, although he does not know why and, when asked, his bondmate hesitates to reply, often changing the subject.
