Name Pronounced: Krystyn
Appearance: Long, ebony hair tumbles over slim shoulders and into eyes that are almost shockingly midnight-blue. Her skin seems to be forever sun-kissed, never fading to anything less than tan - perhaps it's due to her lineage, or maybe it's just the fact that she's forever in the sun, whether she's exercising, or simply lounging on the beach with her dragon. Krystyn has a very toned, slender build, standing just shy of 5'6", and carries herself with a confidence that is sometimes perceived as condescending. Her smile is full of the promise of some deep, seductive mystery hidden within her, and her eyes ever carry a mischievous glint within their blue depths.
Personality: Spunky and outgoing, Kryssi has never had a problem making friends, though her opinionated nature has a tendency to rub people the wrong way. She's quite confident in both her looks and her skills, sometimes coming off as arrogant...which never helps her case. She's also a little judgmental, and it sometimes comes across in exactly the wrong moments. She's very trustworthy to those who earn it, however, and is more than willing to lend a sympathetic ear and some advice to those who ask for it. Though she's very flirtatious, she tends to shy away from anything *too* serious - preferring to 'keep her options open'.
History: Born to a respected Farmer and his wife in the Northern Holds, Krystyn was taught values since she was able to understand them. Hold women were to be betrothed, married, and were expected to have large families. At first, that didn't bother her. It wasn't until a horrible first-time sexual experience that she decided that, well, that destiny was total wherry shit.
Information about Krystyn's dragon
Dragon Name: Setyth
Age: 12 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Flamespires
Appearance: Setyth is a slender dragon, her hide a gleaming sea-green with hints of emerald flashing here and there - wings like dark kelp. She seems almost too slender to be in proportion, hardly holding any bulk at all to her form. However, she's not at all small, and is actually an incredibly attractive dragon to look at - and she has the same confident air that her rider holds, and somehow she holds that same mysteriously secretive attraction - as though there's something undiscovered, just beneath the surface.
Personality: Just as spunky and outspoken as her rider, Setyth tends to inform people exactly what her opinion is, regardless of the situation, and won't think twice about speaking to anybody at all. She's as unpredictable as the sea - perhaps that's why she loves the water - and if not on any other assignment, she often insists that Krystyn take her to the seaside, so she can play in the waves. She's almost painfully protective of her rider, and very much a tease - having a tendency to flirt with dragon and rider alike.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Being stubborn, she tends to avoid listening to good advice, though she doesn't do it on purpose - and her recent months of being ground-ridden has left her a little weak, her muscles no longer used to the constant strain of flight. She's working on getting back up to par, so to speak, and in due time she will be able to hold pace with any bronze.
