Name Pronounced: Knee
Appearance: Born: 7th Month, 28th Day
Personality: Kioni is a quiet child, often seen staring at everything hungrily with his large eyes. He is in desperate need of love and will accomplish any task given to see that love in another's eyes. But he will not ask for it and will often disdain any offer to help. He's making plans, you see, to become the best ... at what, he doesn't know. His only known weakness ... dolphins. When it comes to them, he will fight to the bitter end to make sure they are treated well, standing his ground against all odds.
History: Born in Bitra, Kioni's father was a blacksmith, his mother, a hand-maiden for the Lord's oldest daughter. Having two brothers and a sister, Kioni had a peaceful childhood, the Lord's daughter giving them more than most would receive. Until one cold winter's night when his father placed a bet he could never hope to win. The loss required Kioni's father to steal a runnerbeast in payment. The Steward caught him and dismissed him from the hall, the entire family included. The sudden change in life was hard, his father began taking it out on Kioni as he was the oldest. Even his mother couldn't stop the large man that she loved. Within a fortnight, his mother was dead from an illness, followed by one child, then another. His father was frantic in trying to save his family, but was unable to as he, also fell from the illness. Kioni was 8-turns old when he found himself alone.
Information about K'ni's dragon
Dragon Name: Moenith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Flamespires
Appearance: Moenith is a thin blue with an oddly long body. It is not that he's tall-far from it, in fact- but his body is stretched out as though someone yanked him in all directions while he was still in the egg. His color is a velvety, dark blue that appears as if it should be soft to the touch, though there are lighter spots of milky white that are liberally sprinkled across his hide.
Personality: He is almost outrageously positive about everything. Whenever his lifemate doubts himself, within five seconds Moenith will offer encouragement so warming it's almost suffocating. He sets impossible goals for himself and works doggedly to achieve them. Once graduated, he'll do his best to last the entire Threadfall, though he knows such a thing is impossible. He'll be quite good at charring the Thread that gets away from the larger dragons, his odd shape allowing him to slip through those awkward nooks.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: His thin body makes him nearly slither through the air, finding space to move within any Thread clumps. He's fast and very agile but his stamina is seriously lacking.
