Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Jezíry is a very tall man, almost 6í4Ē and lanky with his height. If he wasnít a rider he might have a bit of a belly, but due to his duties heís pretty skinny with broad shoulders. His height is his only remarkable feature. Otherwise, Jezíry is fairly ordinary looking with a somewhat stubborn chin. He has light brown hair that he keeps very short because of its tendency to curl. Itís slowly shifting to a full gray, a fact Jezíry accepted a long time ago. He has blue eyes that are only worth noting when heís up to no good because they tend to light up with glee. Jezíry, despite his age, has the grin of a mischievous little boy, a sure sign of trouble.
Personality: Jezíry is a lover of mischief, and occasionally mayhem. He is the first man many even half his age go to in order to have a good time on a night off. His age doesnít restrict him from getting in trouble, but he has become a bit more responsible, or some would say sneakier, with his pranks. Although the stodgier folks might find nothing amusing about his mischief, in general itís fairly good spirited. He doesnít set out to mortify people, and doesnít target anyone he senses would be hurt by his games. In his work he has found his ďcreativeĒ mind is helpful in trying to find scenarios that will interest and challenge those he is teaching.
History: Born at Farmcrafthall to a pair of young farmers, Jezamry was a delight to his parents. Due to a disease she acquired not long after her sonís birth, his mother was unable to have any other children and so both parents doted on their son. He grew up to be a troublemaker, playing pranks on the beasts and the people alike. His mother try to dole out slaps and strokes in equal measure, but always found it hard to punish the boy when she was laughing. His father, a generally solemn fellow, couldnít begrudge the joy Jezamry brought to his mother whoíd always wanted a large family.
Information about Jez'ry's dragon
Dragon Name: Astemth
Wing (Weyrling Group): WeyrlingMasters
Appearance: Astemth is built for almost a singular purpose: speed. Although on the ground he looks a bit awkward with such powerful wings and the light body, in the air there are few blues to equal him. He has a handsome hide, a deep blue with thin bands of lighter blue running down his sides. His head is beautifully streamlined. His built for speed body does make him more delicate than his fellows. As a young dragon he would often end grounded by small injuries that bulkier, sturdier dragons could shake off.
Personality: Astemth is a very bright and friendly dragon though not as mischievous as his rider. He is often one of those surprised by Jezíryís pranks despite their connection. Astemthís recklessness reveals itself in his love for speed, for more excitement in the air. He loves pushing himself to be faster, with little thought to how that helps him in flights or threadfall.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: Astemth is an incredible flier, but that speed comes at a price. He isnít as good at distance flying and can often push himself too hard.
