Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: 5'10" tall, 190 lbs, Lucthor is a lithe young man. His blonde hair is the color of straw, cut short for the southern heat. His eyes are close together, a dark chocolate brown and lit with a cynical humor that never seems to fade. He has one scar, across the back of his non-dominant left hand from a run-in with a large cat.
Personality: Cynical and easily bored, Lucthor is always looking for something new and exciting to spark his interest. The problem is, nothing does for long. He is full of energy and interest when first introduced to a project, and may even pursue it for up to a turn. Unfortunately, inevitably boredom strikes again and he is off looking for the next thrill. Relationships do not fare any better. About the time his latest lady friend is looking for a hand fasting he is looking for a new lady friend.
History: Born to Southern Traders, he travelled from one location to another for as long as he could remember. Unfortunately, while the travel suited his transient nature, the idea of selling anything became much too mundane. As soon as he was old enough to strike out on his own, he did. One season building ships, a second fishing them proved that seacrafting was not for him. A season with the foresters honed his hunting skills and gave him his scar, but the lull between hunting season left him cold. A trip up north to Bitra taught him to gamble fairly well, but once the other gamblers knew his style it was a difficult way to make a living. Searched while playing dragon poker with an Arolos rider, Lucthor was convinced that perhaps the uncertainty of weyrlife would finally give him a place to fit in.
Information about L'thor's pets
Pet Name: Pere
Pet Type: Flit
Appearance: Hatched from a green's egg, Pere is not a very big flit. It isn't that he's a runt, just will never have the size of those born of a gold. His coloring is almost sky blue. One spot of darker blue on his head, another at the base of his tail, make it look like an artist dripped while paitning him.
Personality: Born with an attitude that matches his human, Pere tends to flitter off to do as he pleases, coming back to Lucthor when he's hungry or needs an oiling. Almost never found on Lucthor's shoulder, the easiest way to track him down is to convince his human to bath or swim. Pere hates water, and is constantly telling Lucthor about it.
Information about L'thor's dragon
Dragon Name: Metriath
Age: 11 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: Metriath is best described as two-toned blue. A lovely dusky sky blue, his headknobs,wings, back, and forlegs are a shade darker than his chest, belly, rear legs and tail. He believes his darker shade is much handsomer than his lighter shade, so seldom extends his wings when not in flight.
Personality: Metriath wants... everything. That warm woollen blanket over there. The shiny thing that girl's wearing. The bowl his rider feeds him out of. He wants it all, just because. His greed will, rather unfortunately, lead him astray sometimes. Where earning Marks are concerned he might at times become a little less than honest - not exactly lying, just stretching the truth a little. And he'll talk, manipulate and coax others to follow along in these grand money-making plans of his, not always telling *them* the full truth either.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: There *is* a part which will think of others, protect his friends, look after people. He can save a life, a heart and a friend in an instinctive moment because under his ambition is a sentimentalist.
