Name Pronounced: Lie-leen
Appearance: The first thing most notable about this greenrider is her height; in comparison to other women she’s a tall, willowy creature for someone so young. Standing at about 5’10", if perhaps a little higher, Lailine holds the great advantage of being able to peer over most heads without much assistance. The base of her height is, as a whole, contributed to her elongated, bony legs. While not overly noticeable when in riding leathers or trousers, her legs are actually a little mismatched in contrast to the rest of her body. Still, the exaggeration isn’t huge and while they may look slightly odd at first due to their knobby curvatures, its not a negative trait and in fact actually aid her in hurrying about the Weyr. Her stride is relatively normal but if annoyed it lengthens considerably and most have to jog to stay in time with her. Weyrlinghood was good to her in providing the customary muscle mass any good rider has, and needs, and while hers is an adequate amount it is evenly distributed to provide a lean look that she’s rather satisfied with.
Personality: From the day she was born Lailine has always been a bold force conceived of quick wit and a shock of wry humor. Primarily a mild-tempered young woman there is a cool grasp of life, an unwavering sense of righteousness and the outgoing frivolity that keep her spirit young even as she matures into adulthood. A level head is perched securely upon her shoulders, coupled with a great sense of tact and eloquence for everything said and done. As a whole she’s a polite, gregarious person, but she has her quiet moments of reflection and at times can be a little daunting if in one of her more edgy moods.
History: Linedar, 40, father
Information about Lailine's dragon
Dragon Name: Hasanth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: It might just be her arrogance and ego but Hasanth somehow looks bigger than she really is. Despite being somewhere in the average to small end of green charts she has some way of making herself seem longer, taller and just all around huge when standing alone. When amongst other greens, however, the first conception of her being a large dragon is quickly set aside, she looks almost like a miniature when the heftier of her color are contrasted. That’s not going to stop Hasanth, though, no way. Her long, gently arched back bestows a serpentine effect, similar to a tunnelsnake in the soft curves that extend to her hind-quarters, wings and shoulders; she’s streamline and perhaps a bit on the skinny side. Like all dragons she does have the customary muscle-mass and bulk developed early in their first few turns, but this green’s is distributed evenly about her entire body so that it is well concealed and gives the effect of extreme litheness.
Personality: Straight from the get-go this is a green that intends to leave an Impression wherever she goes. There is a strong-will and ferocious determination embedded deep within her heart and soul, something that arises whenever she feels the need to show off or draw attention. Hasanth is well-focused to her goals and when approaching whatever obstacle that slides her way, she has in set in her mind to accomplish it bigger and better than anyone else ever has. She will not be held back by anything and has little tolerance for people or dragons that waste her valuable time. She has to always be busy with *something* and if not she’ll strike out on her own to find what might amuse her. However, she gets bored very easily and if not sufficiently entertained when *she* wants to be there is no doubt that she will become extremely petulant and annoying to those around her.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: A good threadfighter for many reasons, this greenie is a rocket when it comes to speed and is an expert in dodging both Thread and other dragons, this also applying to flights. She's a sprinter though, and it shows, as she can barely last half a 'Fall with such limited stamina. Also, Hasanth's self-centred, whining tendencies are not the most favourable to deal with and may cause some problems with just about everyone because of it.
