Name Pronounced: Jay-sin
Appearance: A rather muscled lad from turns of work, Jayssin stands tall at 6 feet. He keeps his brown hair shaved short and his face is often covered in scruff from not shaving as often as he should. His hazel eyes are distinct and show hints of kindness as well as a determined stare. His skin is dark like his parents who were born in the south. A long scar runs from shoulder to wrist on his right arm, the result of being thrown from a particularly angry runner. Over the scar on his wrist he has a crest tattooed in honor of the traders he grew up with who helped him realize his love of beasts.
Personality: Rather reserved about his personal life, Jayssin is still friendly to those around him. Often times he comes across as gruff and blunt, with no fear of stating exactly what is on his mind. He has a feeling of duty for what is right and is quick to defend those close to him from injustices. Occasionally it has resulted in a scuffle quickly won with fighting skills he learned from his trader friends. He has a love of travel wanting to see everything there is to see in Pern.
History: Born Pre-pass 1.08.01
Information about J'ssin (Jayssin)'s pets
Pet Name: Porter
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Clearly a Callamere brown, Porter is an evenly muscled firelizard. His long body has proved to be useful when it comes to speed and agility making his over sized wings look a bit more fitting. He's a dark shade of chocolate brown with hints of copper coloring dappled over his hide.
Personality: Porter is a well trained flit seemingly calm in any situation. He has faced angry beasts with his owner and fears nothing he's come across yet. Clingy while he was young the flit has become a bit more independent though he never really leaves Jayssin's side except to deliver messages. He has proven himself an excellent messenger with a keen sense of where there is danger. A bit standoff-ish with strangers he is apt to snap and hiss until reassured that the new people he faces are alright. His one weakness is chasing. Any sign of a rising green or gold has him sprinting off after them.
Information about J'ssin (Jayssin)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Emryth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: A gangling lanky hatchling, with rather pointy headknobs, Emryth will also grow to be a long, lanky brown dragon. What will be surprising will be the sheer amount of power and stamina contained in that comparatively thin frame and large wings. Emryth will be faster than anyone would give him credit for, incredibly agile in the air and able to keep up with the bronzes. His overly long tail seems to be his biggest downfall in his younger days, always finding it's way under foot or accidentally swinging into someone. J'ssin affectionately calls it 'happy tail syndrome', the appendage reflecting his dragon's moods. On the ground he appears so clumsy he is a bit of a laughing stock, and weyrling training will be a bit of a trial to him and his life mate. Expect a few punishments - at least until he starts flying!
Personality: In terms of personality, Emryth is incredibly loyal and goodhearted, and often gets himself into a mess trying to help out others. He will make an excellent Wingsecond's dragon, because he shies away from taking too much credit, but has a lot of talent to support a leader who can see beyond the surface.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: As a young dragon Emryth is so long and lanky he is often very clumsy. Over time he'll adjust to his body and find his speed and agility in the sky.
