Name Pronounced: Luf-FIN
Appearance: L'fin has cream skin, twinkling sea green eyes, and short, straight, dark brown hair. A few freckles dust his cheeks. He has a lean build, though muscled. In direct sunlight, he tends to burn, so he wears mostly long sleeves. He is small for his age, and appears younger than he really is.. He has several slight scars on his back, from where a wher trampled him, that will never entirely fade.
Personality: L'fin tends to be mostly quiet, although he can become animated over certain things, like flits, or which dragon-rider pair flies his Nilanth. He is an average dragonrider in that he loves his dragon dearly. He prefers to accept his life the way it is, although at first he wasn't sure he wanted to come to the Weyr. L'fin is loyal to those close to him, especially Nilanth, and can get touchy if he feels she's being slighted. He also tends to take harshness badly, especially if he feels he deserves it.
History: Both of his parents are alive, but his mother is in poor health. He fears (or feared) his father, because Joran was harsh to all his siblings, especially Lafin, who bore most of his displeasure. He is one of five siblings, the second eldest of four sisters and himself. Also, before he Impressed Nilanth, he was slightly nervous around dragons. So when he was Searched, he went to Telgar Weyr only because his mother encouraged him to. The character's family had emigrated to Telgar Hold when he was 6. He is the first generation born in that area. While young, he was befriended by a person who turned out to be an extreme snob. As a result, he is sensitive to the jibes of others.
