Name Pronounced: Kee - ah - dree - ah
Appearance: Kiadria is of medium height, with a lean body that is covered in lean muscle. Her body's curves are neither very big or very small, and look very good on her. She has chin-length auburn hair and bright, inquisitive green eyes, that seem to be just slightly too large for her face, with just a few freckles dusting her nose. Her skin is tanned a dark brown from long hours working in the hot sun. She tends to wear her rider gear on most informal occasions, albeit without the thick jacket. She gives the impression of slightly ephemeral beauty, though she is definitely not fragile. She is neither plain nor a beauty, but is reasonably good-looking.
Personality: Presently, Kiadria is quiet and withdrawn, keeping mostly to herself, her child, and her dragon. Her eyes hold a tragic gaze to everyone who meets them, but she was not always that way. Before the series of events that led to her transfer to Arolos, Kiadria was a happy, carefree young woman with an engaging smile and a clever tongue, who loved to join in the activities of her Weyr and interact with both the Lower Cavern women and the female dragonriders alike. Hopefully after she has time to heal she will begin to resemble that woman again, but even so, some parts of her are lost forever.
Information about Kiadria's pets
Pet Name: Haku (Kohaku)
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Mother: Aeja, green flit
Personality: He's just hatched, so he doesn't really do more than eat and sleep, but he already shows an unusally strong bond with his Pet. He wants to be right next to her as often as possible, and if he wakes up when Kiadria is not present, he'll cry as loudly as he can until she appears -- even if someone tries to give him food. He's not very fond of Bireth, however, due to a scare she gave him right after he hatched, and sometimes tries to keep her away from HIS Pet. This is somewhat disappointing to Bireth, who hoped that Haku would see her as his mother, but maybe he'll get over it -- only time will tell.
Second Pet Name: Torne
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Torne is smaller than Paska, average size for a medium green firelizard. Her coloration is also of a dark shade, but it is a more dusky pine green. Her body could be described as lithe and she is much more graceful than Paska. She also bears no scars or marks.
Personality: The introverted one, Torne is what most people wish firelizards were like; Calm. She is devoid of excitable emotions, except of course in flight, and she isn't noisy or annoying. She is perfectly content to sit on Sy'ons shoulder for hours, barely moving or chattering. She is the ideal flit for sending messages, because Paska as a nasty habit of getting distracted.
Information about Kiadria's dragon
Dragon Name: Bireth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Bireth is a large for a green, though not comparable to a blue in size. She is a shade of dark forest green, that, while not particularly iridescent in color, seems to shimmer and sparkle with light, especially on sunny days. Bireth is a perfectly proportioned green, no long neck or tail or oversized wings for her, and is posessed of such a perfect grace when moving around that it just begs to be noticed.
Personality: Bireth is very even-tempered for a green, sweet and gentle in her behavior. She has a tendency to be motherly and loves Kiadria's two-year-old son to death, as well as any felines, canines, or flits she comes across. She a melodious mindvoice and almost never snaps or raises her tone to any dragon or rider. However, this easygoing nature may make her too trusting of people she would otherwise not let be around her rider.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: In Threadfall, Bireth is a very dependable green, never indulging in the wild displays that many greens and blues do. No, she sticks to her job of fighting Thread -- and looks good doing it. She somehow almost never becomes scored in Threadfall, and her flame is very constant and well sustained for a green. However, her compassionate side makes her try to save other dragons and riders that are in trouble, putting herself and her riders in danger -- sometimes when she doesn't strictly need to.
