Name Pronounced: kim`ARA`nuh
Appearance: Kimarrena, known also as Kim, is an androgynous beauty--she is not well-endowed and very boyishly cute. Her dark chestnut brown hair is long enough to reach her shoulders but frames a face composed of strong yet rounded features. Her thick eyebrows rest above her dark green eyes and give her a bold stare.
Personality: She is a headstrong girl and lives by impulses, rushing into situations without thinking them through, and her resolve is unbreakable. When she puts her mind to something, she will follow through with it, and Faranth help anyone who tries to get in her way. She is a thrill-seeker and enjoys doing exciting, potentially dangerous things.
History: Kimarrena is the fourth child in her family, born to Journeyman Sailor Kimalon and his drudge wife Errena in the busy life of Atoll Hold. Even throughout her infant and toddler years she seemed to show the characterisitcs associated with an intrepid individual, and she grew into one mischievous Holdbrat, always stealing bubblies from the kitchens and taking toys from other children. Nothing was ever too hard for her up until her Apprenticeship. She Apprenticed into the Divercraft, a small branch stemming off of the Sailorcraft; she proved to be an adept at diving into the sea and retrieving things.

Information about Kimarrena's dragon
Dragon Name: Badoweth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Looking at him, you know right away this young dragon is formidable. Badoweth is impressively large for a blue, his size due to the muscular girth that he achieved when he reached full growth. He has very wide shoulders, thick with strong muscles, and that remarkable width doesn’t taper off until his tail narrows off into a tip. His back legs are brawny and allow him to take off quickly; his front legs are not nearly as defined. There is something about this dragon that makes you realize no matter what, he’s in it for the long haul.
Personality: This vibrant blue dragon is a virtual fireball! He is very tough - but not a mean little guy. He'll inspire fear while not being threatening; he'll command respect while not being oppressive. He's as solid as a stone wall and just as immovable when he sets his mind to something. Stubborn on a self-righteous vein explains Badoweth perfectly.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: A long-lasting dragon capable of flying the better part of Threadfall before resting; not as speedy as smaller blues but still just as agile; pretty average flame.
