Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Devastatingly handsome, stunningly gorgeous- youíd probably never hear anyone use these words to describe Matay; his features are too feminine for that. Oddly, he inherited his motherís beauty in a masculine form. It is to his advantage, however. His lips, for one thing are full and thoroughly kissable, leaving people to want to do just that after looking at him once. His eyes are the same startlingly dark blue of his sisterís. And he has lashes that most women wish to have and is totally unfair on a man. When angry, Matayís eyes glint dangerously and dark flashes make him a menacing sight. However, when excited or happy, they take on a lighter hue of blue, making the blue more obvious. His hair, like his sisterís, is silky and commonly referred to as Ďkitten furí. He keeps it cut pretty short and easy to deal with. Thankfully his feminine features are toned down by a firm and strong chin, giving him a more masculine look.
Personality: Matay has an extreme sense of chivalry and protection of others. And heíll protect anyone who is in need of it. This means he is also, usually, very forgiving. The only thing that can rile Matay up is if someone tries to harm, emotionally or physically, someone he wishes to protect. Problem is, sometimes his interference can get him into awkward situations where he isn't wanted, for any reason.
History: Moltay was a kind, strong, and gentle man. Sadly he was also quite a poor Holder, just a bit south of the main Telgar Hold. Any of his neighbors, nay anyone who knew him for more than 10 minutes would know of Moltayís generosity, even if he hadnít much to give. You could have no more loyal a compatriot and no more loving a husband. This is exactly why it was he who won the hand of Kassaly. She was a great beauty, daughter of a rich Holder and sought after by almost every eligible bachelor in Telgarís borders. She was swept of her feet by Moltayís romantic adoration and kind heart. It was not long after they were married that Kassaly gave birth to twins! A boy and girl, named Matay and Katay. Matay was the younger by 15 minutes.
Information about M'ltay's pets
Pet Name: Beaut
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: Think of a German Shepard mutt. Beaut has floppy brown ears and paws that are too big for his body. He mainly has soft tan fur, except for a long black stripe down his back. Big brown eyes make him look like a puppy.
Personality: Beaut is the eternal puppy. Over three turns old, Beaut still dashes around like a puppy all the time. He can be calm sometimes and just plain lazy. And in a serious situation, Beaut always knows and can intimidate people something fierce with his menacing growl.
Second Pet Name: Torin
Pet Type: flit
Appearance: Typical in size for a Callamere bronze, Torin has a brassy sheen to his hide. Along his joints the bronze fades to a tarnished brass color.
Personality: Torin is quite vocal and prefers noises to sending images, unusual in a Callamere. This bronze is very much into communication though, making him a noisy little nuisance much of the time.
