Name Pronounced: Leh-ses
Appearance: L'ses does not have the height of many other dragonriders and remains at 5'9" with a skinny build. His skin is a light brown, a shade that could almost be considered mocha. His hair is an ash blonde in color that flows down just past his ears. He keeps his hair parted and brushed towards the back, though he has a tendancy to tuck a few locks of hair behind each ear to keep it away from his face. His eyebrows are pencil thin and slightly arched and are the same ash blonde color of his hair. His eyes are a vivid pine green in color that look rather matte (flat, dull) and make it hard to read his emotions. His nose is of medium size and hawkish, with a pinched bridge and a sharply rounded end. His lips are a pale pink in color and are fairly thin, usually pressed into a thoughtful frown. He has a single shallow threadscore scar that runs from his elbow to his wrist on his right arm. He tends to wear colors such as light tan or green.
Personality: L'ses is a man of discipline and holds himself to a certain set of expectations. He makes sure to keep everything neat and tidy and in good working order. He is very in tune with the emotions of others, one of the traits that may have been why he impressed a green. He is a bit is of philosopher and likes to ponder the big questions in life, though he has yet to find an answer to many of them. L'ses prefers variety to route and will often try new things so he doesn't stagnate and do the same thing day after day. He has a fair amount of self confidence and not much can cause it to waver. Like everyone he does sometimes doubt himself but he will push past it and move on. He is perfectly content to trust those in leadership positions, after all they had to have worked hard to earn those positions and that alone is reason enough to respect them. L'ses finds it fairly easy to adapt to new situations and he warms up quickly to others once he gets to know them.
History: Lerses was born in Telgar Weyr, the son of drudge Syirana and drudge Kovun. He was not an only sibling for he had one sister and one brother. His sister Kherana was older than him by three turns and his brother Luerkes was two turns younger. His parents duties kept them too busy to look after their children; so like most born in the weyr he was raised in the creche as were his siblings. Seeing the hard work his parents had to do Lerses was determined to do something with himself. At the age of 12 turns he apprenticed to a Journeyman Tannercrafter in the Weyr by the name of Keikon. The first few months were spent on learning the bare basics, though Lerses picked up on those rather quickly. It was at 16 turns old that he became a Sr. Apprentice. He particularily was interested in making harnesses and Keikon was more than happy to show him how to make customer ones.
Information about L'ses (deceased)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Aisath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Aisath is rather large green that is a total of 25 feet in length. She has a rather interesting pattern across her hide. Mottled colors of khaki green, jungle green, and vine green spread across the expanse of her body in a camo pattern. This allows her to blend in quite well should she enter a forest or jungle. She has a medium build that is somewhere between bulky and thin. She has a small threadscore scar just below her right eye that is about two inches in length. Her wings are broad and strong with a splotchy camo pattern that spreads across the tops of her wings. Her legs are of medium thickness and her hind legs are slightly longer than the front. Last but not least is her long whip-like trail that is a little over half the length of her body.
Personality: Aisath is nothing if not incredibly stubborn and she's been that way since the day she hatched. Once she has her mind made up about something her rider has a very hard time convincing her otherwise. She is fairly intelligent and she won't allow anything to distract her when she has a certain task set before her. Her worst trait is that she tends to like to gossip and anything her rider tells that she finds important enough to remember will likely be shared with other dragons. She loves to socialize with other dragons and cares very little about what color they are. She can be a bit manipulative when it comes to associating with male dragons, often flattering them or asking for help in order to get something she wants. Like her rider she will put all her trust in those of leadership positions and will not hesitate to do anything that is asked of her. Aisath is working on a special landing in which she can hold something in her front claws and land at the same time. What she does is touches down on her hind legs and flaps her wings to keep herself upright for a few seconds. She then sets down her left front leg and lowers whatever she is holding in her claws on the right foot to the ground. It is a useful way to carry things and also for last minute rescues if need be.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: Aisath's size allows her a fair amount of endurance, though it has diminished her agility. She is good at a special landing with holding something in her claws. Her downside is that she's far too stubborn for her own good and tends to be manipulative.
