Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: All joints. Like a puppet, poor Mianall seems to have knees and elbows everywhere. Awfully clumsy, and horribly selfconcious about it. However, his shoulders and arms have begun to fill out a bit with all the chores from training. He is about 6'1" but now a more filled out 165 pounds.
Personality: A romantic, Mianall hasn't yet learned that bad things don't always just happen to bad people (boy, is he in for a shock) He also tends to fall in love quickly and obsessively, will trail the object of his affections with pleading eyes, and wake him or her at dawn each morning with bad love songs, sung in a voice that is breaking with adolescence and changes on every other note. Terrible poetry with be read to you, or left on your pillow. He will state his adoration in public for all to hear. Turning him down creates heartbreak, and then disbelief and he DOESN'T GO AWAY. He can be one Scary Obsessive Guy without even REALISING it because he doesn't hear the word "no" easily. The words "I've got a boyfriend" don't work well either.
History: Brought up in a Hold the fact that he was Searched came as quite a relief as he was terrorizing the Holders oldest daughter. The fact that she was betrothed didn't appear to put him off and he was causing an awkward situation all round. Sent to Arolos he moped for a few weeks and started looking for someone else to fall in love with.
Information about M'nall's dragon
Dragon Name: Pencyth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: Penscyth is a smallish blue. After being a kind of mottled blue throughout his first two turns, his colouring has finally settled on a deep sky blue fading into a paler blue along his belly. His features and head are small and almost dainty. The young blue is lean but now strong after all his flight training.
Personality: Pencyth cares deeply for his one but he is also fond of whatever girl his rider has by his side. He is a thoughtful dragon, always adding some cool comment to calm his rider. Or he just simply likes listening in on the very 'greenish' (as he calls it) way his rider speaks to females. He has yet to begin any flirting of his own but he likes spending time with almost any dragon who will lounge in the sun with him.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Penscyth is a very quick and agile flyer but his rider must keep firm control of his in the air as he may tend to overshoot his target.
