Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Aproximately 5 feet and 8 inches tall. Short blond hair in a swept back style(like he's just just been running). Large eyes, very bright blue, and a thin nose, slightly longer than average. Ears always visble, slightly thin and elongated. Weight aproximately 115 pounds. Thin. Not extremely muscular, sprinter type athlete (which means he's not the most endurant person ever, but acceptably strong & quick in small bursts[say, running for 2 or so minutes, most likely less]), kind of fluid-like motion constantly, moving rather like a cat. Caucasian.
Personality: Fairly kind, but impatient with people he doesn't know very well or people he can't explain himself to. A little shy at first meetings. He has an infectious laugh, and he really likes to laugh. He likes to try to impress people, so when somebody he doesn't know very well is nearby he tries to act nice and formal (usually ending up making himself look like an idiot). And he likes to learn things. In his free time, he'll either stay with the Harper and ask him things, or else sleep. Intends to buy a firelizard at the next gather, or to get one from the first person whose queen, or green, even, clutches (who is someone he knows and is good friends with, of course). He is often oblivious to the absurdly obvious. For example, if a door did not open when he pushed on it, he would spend about ten minutes trying to figure out how to pick the lock before he realized it was to be pulled. And his two favorite beings in all the universe are Bredeth and Brazz. And he's rather protective of the both of them.
History: Born on the 19th eve of the 5th moon of the Turn. Originally lived in Telgar Weyr until age nine, at which time his mother (Saloraa) brought him to Arolos after his father (S'bast) was killed by Threadscore (spawning his desire to 'kill Thread back'). Whereas he took an immediate liking to the new Weyr, Saloraa decided that she would try out a different Weyr before she settled on one. And so, they moved to Ista. Matthias, however, retained a liking for Arolos, and as soon as his mother would allow, he begged his way to a quick ride on a Istan green, and there he was, at Arolos. Arolos Hold. He hadn't been the most specific with his request, and the rider was gone. Not a problem. Okay, maybe it was a problem. But staying at Arolos Weyr was a big prize, so he decided to walk. Then again, that big ol' peice of driftwood looked like it would hold him. He could paddle with his hands. He got about 30 yards out before the driftwood sank. So walking really WAS the only choice. He is now, however, quite happy being a Weyrbrat at Arolos (but if things go according to plan, he'll soon enough for his tastes be a Weyrling).
Information about M'thias's pets
Pet Name: Brazz
Pet Type: Flit(brown)
Appearance: Brazz is a very nice color brown, the brown of Mahogany wood. He is also very large in general (as big as some of the bronze flits), but in particular he has very large eyes, an overtly long tail, and his wings are also very long (and thin) improving his speed and stamina in flight, but slightly decreasing his maneuverability.
Personality: Of it was it for Brazz is very loving. He's also very nice to anyone who is his friend, or even the friend of a friend, and is very obedient to Matthias. He is quite vicious to those who've made him mad, and hisses in a rather disturbing fashion when angry. He was bought as an egg by Matthias on the first day of a Forest Edge Hold Gather, and hatched a sevenday or so afterward. At the time of the Hatching Bredeth was born in, he was about five and a half months old, and is completely inseparable not only now from M'thias, but Bredeth as well (and they have similar attitudes). And goes nuts if anyone harms either of his pets- kind of like the Hulk with ADHD.
Information about M'thias's dragon
Dragon Name: Bredeth
Age: 18 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Weyrling Wing (Under 16)
Appearance: Bredeth is one of few dragons who looks like his egg. His hide is a beautiful chocolate color (although I personally can't stand chocolate... but I may try some just because of this 'lil guy) and he even smells like gingerbread (another snack food which I don't eat). If somebody sleepwalks near him, they might dream he's a big piece of gingerbread (although if they bit him they'd have Brazz's claws in their skin and M'thias's foot in their face before they could say 'Oh my god the pain! Aaaaaaaaaaaaagh!!!!!!!'). He is a large brown(larger than the majority of his clutchmates), and will be larger still when he's fully grown. His forelegs, and even more so his feet, are even larger, and give him all the sturdness he needs to run faster on land than almost any other dragon- and run he does! His wings are also large- but primarily ignored at the moment. He can run! Why mess with flying?
Personality: Bredeth is as playful as His is. He runs and plays games whenever he can- although he sometimes ingores other things, like where he should be going with M'thias to lessons. He will play with anyone who will play with him- on the odd occasions when M'thias cannot play, Bredeth will play with Brazz, or with any nearby dragons in a similar mood and situation. Eternally cheerful, he has quite the brightening effect on a person (Take Bredeth brand antidepression pills!), although his attention span is sometimes short.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Bredeth has a great work ethic, but sometimes a bad attention span. He is intelligent and strong, but he'd rather play than sit and learn (unless that is what His is doing).
