Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Karosa has a lean, tall body. She has mousy coloured hair that is blonded by the sun and currently long. The blonde is mostly kept from about chin length down, the top often kept beneath her riding helmet or a bandanna type headband to keep any flyaways from her face- the sun bleaching is seen very clearly when she has her hair down. Her eyes are a stormy blue grey colour and are set in a strong looking face. Karosa's skin is a light tan- she is prone to getting burned, but it is only if she is out in the middle of the day with no or very little sun protection. She has a scar across her throat where she was injured during the attack on the candidate barracks.
Personality: Karosa is rather independent- if she can do something by herself, she will. Shells, even if she can't, Faranth forbid she ask for help. She takes a while to form an opinion of others, but once she does it is quite hard to get her to budge on it. She is quite caring, though has learned that she has to look out for herself first- which may seem conflicting but is something that was hard taught.
History: Karosa spent her childhood outside the weyr,in a moderate sized herder croft. She grew up around runners and often helped with the chores growing up. She always loved her lessons, and was quite good at them, for the time she spend on them.
Information about Karosa's dragon
Dragon Name: Pysketh
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: Pysketh hatched out of the shell an ugly dragon, and an ugly dragon he will always be He is a small blue with long and slender legs and oversized wings. His muzzle is sharp looking, and his tail just as thin. His whole face seems narrow, making his eyes seem to big for it, something which may look cute on some but just makes him look even more awkward and ungainly. His color is perhaps his only redeeming feature- a soft blue that is similar in look to well worn in denim, complete with fade areas on his joints.
Personality: Pysketh is eloquent, loving nothing more then to use flowery language in his day to day speech. He loves playing pranks, and having fun- be aware however that as much as he enjoys fun- he also enjoys making fun of others. It is this edge of cruelty that he will need his Rider to be his conscience- and to pull him up on his behaviour. This dragon is one who always wants to make friends- he just has trouble realizing that not everyone likes his idea of fun.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Pysketh is very nimble and fast in the air, however on the ground he is rather clumsy. He is however a smaller sized dragon, and tires quickly. He has to often be reminded to stay on task during things he finds boring- which is anything that isn't fighting thread.
