Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: K'wur stands at 6'3" tall and likes to partner with men who are also tall. For all that K'wur is a greenrider he is a masculine homosexual rather than a feminine homosexual. He has dark brown eyes that lighten in the direct sunlight , and straight longish hair in shades of brown, from light golden brown to a rich deep chestnut, as a result from the Southern sun, and he likes to maintain a two days growth of stubble, rather than be clean shaven. He likes to wear comfortable clothing, that accentuated his fine physique, in harper colors. K'wur also has a small scar on his right hand from a fight with a wingleader.
Personality: K'wur is flight bisexual but his personal life preference is homosexual. He's very friendly to most people, though he has a dry sense of humor, and is just as quick to tell someone - even friends - to feck off. It used to burn him up when people degraded harpers when he was younger, but as his metamorphosis from a harper to a dragonrider became complete in his heart and mind, he no longer cared what people thought. Now, he's committed to being a dragonrider, however, he still retains his Journeyman knots and likes to play his instruments and sing; secretly he writes tunes only to hide them away from everyone but his closest friends. K'wur considers himself a ‘down-to-Pern’ type of person, and is very excited about the new band.
History: Kalewur was born in the Harper Hall to a Journeyman and Journeywoman Harper. It was expected that he would become a Harper, and he became an apprentice as soon as he could. When he was 20 turns old he was sent to walk the tables and made a Journeyman. His proud parents gifted him a flit egg which hatched into his blue flit, Delie. K'wur was so happy; he didn’t think that life could get any better. He was well trained in all aspects of his craft and was even taught some non-harper things when he was sent to Holds to observe and learn.
Information about K'wur's pets
Pet Name: Delie
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Delie is 12 turns old and he's a large dark blue flit, except on his tail. There he is a lighter harper blue, turning almost white in some spots.
Personality: He is very friendly and outgoing. He also likes shiny things, and will seemingly attack anyone to get anything shiny, of course when K'wur catches him at it he makes him give it back, or if he refuses K'wur tries to find his stash and return the said shiney thing to its owner. Most of the time however, folks just grin and let Delie keep it thereby earning a friend that would have no problems swiping another shiney thing from said new friend.
Second Pet Name: Goldie
Pet Type: Runner
Appearance: Goldie is a beautiful 13 year old pony-type runner in her prime. She has a beautiful golden-brown mane that goes down past her shoulder and is the same color as her coat and tail, and it's where her name originated from. Her front of her muzzle is a smoky dark grey kohl. She is a real head turner with no bad habits. She is small but well proportioned with strong short legs that support her body magnificently. Goldie is gentle, making it easy for anyone to ride her, but she has plenty of speed when asked for it.
Personality: Goldie is a gorgeous mare and she has always had a very calm clear head. She will go any speed for anyone, at anytime. She is not a work runner but rather a leisure runner since she is owned by a dragonrider who cuddles her as much as he cuddles his beloved Green Zentath and his little blue flit Delie. She is always well groomed, fed the best that K’wur can finagle or gather for her, and exercised regularly.
Information about K'wur's dragon
Dragon Name: Zentath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: She has no Thread scores on her, which is surprising for a dragon as old as she is. She is still young, and can last very long in Threadfall. She is also very agile, and beautiful. She is dark green all over, but has lines of medium green crisscrossing all over her body, as if she was slashed by a knife that put permanent paint on her, instead of causing pain. She also has dots of a very light green on her wings.
Personality: She is very active, and tries to be involved in everything around the Weyr. Many people have reacted angrily to her having K'wur ask what they're doing if it looks vaguely interesting, which makes her depressed. She'll bounce back from it, though, until another person gets angry at this. She is generally very happy, though, and enjoys fighting Thread, but probably won't once she gets scored a few times.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: Although it might seem like a weakness she is very inquisitive and asks a lot of questions, but to K'wur this is an asset as his beautiful Zentath's nature is more that of a harper's than most harpers he knows.
