Name Pronounced: Quinn
Appearance: At 6’1 some consider him tall. He takes good care of himself eating right and working out everyday when he can which is the reason for his well cut muscular build. Claw mark scars run down his chest to about his waist from when Haimerth hatched tired to climb up him to reach his face.
Personality: K’wen is one of the most straight-laced people one could ever meet. He takes his position as a dragon rider very seriously and it shows in his actions and words, and he expects the same from his fellow riders. Those who fail to meet his high standards often find themselves drilling with K’wen until they do. While he can be strict with those in his wing, he will work with them every step of the way to help them improve.
History: Kitwen was born to crafter parents at Benden Hold. His father Ukaytz was a tanner and his mother Geledse was a glass crafter, and they both tended to be more involved with their crafts then with their son. At the age of two Kitwen was fostered to a guard named Arorvin and his wife Nihite, they were strict but fair parents to the boy. Arorvin taught Kitwen to stand up for what he believed in, and to protect those who were weaker then himself. Nihite taught him to be an example to others around him. Often saying, “If you show others you are not above working hard to achieve goals they will more likely to follow your example.”
Information about K'wen's pets
Pet Name: Ashitaka
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Oh my, what a handsome brown he is, practically gorgeous. Just take a look at his beautiful, sepia brown hide, rippling with a coppery hue that seems to forever indicate his marvellous health and vitality. Like a good blade, this colour will rarely dull and continues even then to linger brightly, remembered, like a waning star. Considering this brown always appears to be in excellent health, this ‘waning’ will be very rare indeed.
Personality: As beautiful within as he mostly is in appearance, this brown’s personality does not suffer from a dark area as his hide does. Instead, the heart and soul of this valiant brown is flawless.
Information about K'wen's dragon
Dragon Name: Haimerth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CandidateMasters
Appearance: Haimerth is a large brown roughly the size of a small bronze. His coloring is a raw umber brown with brushes of burnt umber across his muzzle and on his wing tips. He is an oddly put together dragon with wings that almost seem to large for his muscular frame and an elegant head that almost seems too small. Not that he minds he actually finds it amusing when someone does a double take when they look at him.
Personality: Haimerth is a calm and relaxed brown. Nothing seems to faze him and he always seems to be a voice of reason even in the most pressing moments. The most difficult tasks seem to come easily to him and he completes them with a confident grace. This ability stems from the constant drilling he and his rider perform in training the younger riders.
Weyr of Origin: Benden
Abilites and weaknesses: An experienced flier with great stamina and maneuverability for his size, Haimerth is a great thread fighter. However, he seems to burn more energy than other browns. To make up for the loss of energy he eats nearly twice as much food as a regular brown, and after the threat of thread has pasted he falls into a deep long sleep for at least a day before he is useful again.
