Name Pronounced: Luh-NEHL
Appearance: L'nel is about 5í10Ēó when he actually stands up straight. He slouches almost all the time. He has lanky black hair that goes down to his shoulders and sticks out around his head. He has sunken-in eyes that are so dark blue that they are almost black. These eyes have very dark circles underneath because he never, ever sleeps. He is moderately pale with hollow cheeks. He wears black and white shirts and pants- always both colors and the garment is always a solid color. Despite his unhealthy appearance, Línel is more than capable of keeping up with his work with energy to spare for training his body afterwards. Not only is he extremely mentally fit, but he is lithe, strong, and graceful. Also, Línel has a small Threadscore on his right arm from right before he left Ista.
Personality: Línel seems like he would be a loner, but really he enjoys people. However, he is a tactical genius. After Threadfalls, he studies reports and devises strategies that, he believes, are better than the ones used. He has only one other friend, Near, and he concurs with Línelís ideas. Línelís voice is naturally quiet, but is made even more so because he frequently chews on his thumb. Despite this, his attitude, and his posture, Línel always clearly and efficiently conveys his thoughts.
History: Named Lunannuel, Línel was born in Ista Weyr on 22.214.171.124, sired from a dragonflight. He never interacted much with anyone except Near, another youth whom he met and became exceedingly close friends with. Lunannuel stayed by himself when he could, which was surprisingly often, given the amount of work that needed to be done.
Information about L'nel's pets
Pet Name: Blinker
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: Blinker is a very furry little kitten. She has a white undercoat with orange stripes. Her eyes are green and very wide in her head. Her tail is almost always flicking while she stares at some strange object or another.
Personality: No, she isn't an alien and acts much like a regular kitten should. Except for those occassional moments when her eyes get very large and she tilts her head just so... and stares at you. It doesn't take long to grow uncomfortable under that stare because it's not unlike being analyzed but when it is directed at something else it is amusing. She
Second Pet Name: Stitch
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Stitch is a little bit chubby, but his wings are long and narrow, looking almost as if they belong to someone else. When he does fly, he's surprisingly
Personality: Blue flits may have a reputation for laziness, but Stitch takes it one step further. There's nothing wrong with his wings, but he'd rather climb than fly - walls, furniture, his pet; if there's any way to scale it, he'll find it. Stitch will take to the air to get from one place to another, but only if if he can't get a ride on someone's shoulder. All of this may have something to do with his build.
Information about L'nel's dragon
Dragon Name: Hemiseth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Short tailed and extremely stocky, Hemiseth is a strong little blue who has the aerial grace of a tossed brick. His power makes up for his lack of grace though, he has the unusual strength and stamina for a blue to ride out an entire fall without a break. Of course that doesn't mean he won't pay for it more the next day than a brown or bronze would. You can't really call him an attractive dragonet, even his hide is an odd sort of hazy murky blue, reminiscent of sky on a particularly hot and humid day but his abilities make up for his appearance.
Personality: He is a blustery quick tempered dragonet, prone to flying into rages over the littlest things and his rider will have his work cut out for him in finding ways to sooth the hot headed blue. Thankfully his fiery outbursts tend to be short lived, once he's blown off his steam he'll be back to his normal, if somewhat crotchety self.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Hemiseth has astounding stamina for a blue if no grace whatsoever. His temper tends to get the better of him but he's loyal to his friends.
