Name Pronounced: k"A"-rin
Appearance: Kaerene has a runner's build, lean and wiry. She's about average height and weight for her age, has tanned skin from being outside so often, and shoulder-length black hair which she keeps in a braid.
Personality: Kaerene is something of an oddball. Instead of focusing on the skills needed to help in the Trader caravan like the rest of her family, she prefers only to study animals and plants. She spends long hours observing and recording different behaviors and lifestyles, often losing track of time and place in the process.
History: Kaerene was born and raised on the road with her trader family. She’s an only child, but has several cousins of varying ages in the caravan, among other relatives. Her parents found her hobby to be a strange one, but put up with it when she proved to have a knack for scouting, and with caring for the draftbeasts. All in all she had a happy childhood. As she grew older and wandered further from the wagon train on her “expeditions”, Kaerene made herself a metal-lined hat to protect against Thread. She was never able to test the design however, since her parents wouldn’t let her anywhere near Thread.

Information about Kaerene's dragon
Dragon Name: Saewylth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Death Defiers
Personality: Saewylth will burst from his egg with all the dramatics a hatchling can manage. And from that moment for the rest of his life, everything this tall, thin blue does will be done as dramatically as possible. He likes the attention that comes with it and when he can get others to laugh because of what he does, all the better. His hide is one of the lighter shades of blue, with little variation other than on his face where he has several darker coloured splotches that will likely have at least a few people thinking of freckles.
