Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: K'ylisn has dark brown hair with streaks of a lighter, softer brown running through it in the height of the summer. His eyes are beautiful, intense, radiant emerald green. Very expressive when he looks at you, you know what he's thinking, or at least you know what he wants you to think he's thinking. More often than not it's truly what's on his mind because he's always found it hard to dissimulate. He's found himself in trouble because of those eyes giving his true feelings away, part of the reason he learned to at least try to cover his more volatile emotions.
Personality: K'ylisn is an old soul in a relatively young man's body. He's not *that* young, but he's not considered old either. He thinks like an old soul, one who is contemplative and aware of consequences. Does this *old* side to him mean he can't be light-hearted, far from it. He usually has a slight curve to the corners of his lips as if a smile is just a heartbeat away. He has a great sense of humor but isn't given to practical jokes, he found out young they tend to backfire.
History: Born in the second month on the 18th day, prepass by 9 turns, K'ylisn is the son of a bronzerider and a pretty middle-aged drudge. He was raised in Telgar Weyr and when he was eleven turns old his father was killed in threadfall, two turns into the current pass. His death shaped K'ylisn's life and he went from a child into manhood abruptly because of the tragedy. Maybe it wouldn't have been so bad if his mother hadn't been so incredibly devoted to the bronzerider. He was the only one for her and he didn't care that she was older than him by a good ten turns. He didn't care that she'd only given him one child, and he was just as devoted to her in his own way. Of course he attended flight and had his share of flightlusting, but other than that he was particular about being with K'ylisn's mother.
Information about K'ylisn's pets
Pet Name: Kaptin
Pet Type: Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: Dark bronze in coloring, this bronze flit is on the small size but all is good. He's compact and well muscled, with a long tail.
Personality: Mischievious and playful, Kaptin has a mean streak too. He gets petulant easily and yet cares deeply about those he's attached to.
Information about K'ylisn's dragon
Dragon Name: Boksheth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Take a dark pigmented human and put them in the sun to bask for several day and that deep rich suntan they find themselves with is the same beautiful warm brown that Boksheth was hatched with. He's the same gorgeous color everywhere except on all for paws and it looks like he has dark nutbrown socks on. A rolypoly brown, Boksheth is on the large, round size and no matter how much K'ylisn exercises him he nevers loses that round pudgy shape that makes some call him fat. His shape slows him down a bit and cuts back on his agility, but he has amazing stamina.
Personality: Stubborn, Boksheth isn't so easy to get along with when he sets his mind to something opposing his rider. He's a sweet dragon though if he's not in the middle of a slight stubborn pique. He loves to swim and more importantly he loves to have company when swimming. Boksheth is a very touchy feely dragon. He loves to be tactile and that's something he's brought out in his rider as well.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: He's a fast swimmer, not so fast flyer, but he has great stamina. He can't tolerate the cold in his back right hindleg, it aches something fierces. He also doesn't like to be alone.
