Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Makani is a slim young woman that lacks curves in pretty much every possible location and she knows it. Her sun-kissed complexion doesn’t hide the whipcord over muscle, something that she no doubt keeps up with constantly, though she’s never going to be bulky. Her one vanity is the long wavy blond hair that hangs down to her waist, its always fixed to stay out of her way but with ribbons or flowers to give it that little extra touch. Her wide-spaced sea green eyes are just a bit too wide, and along with her strong cheekbones she can often be mistook for a boy if it wasn’t for the hair. To offset this she embroiders her clothing with the latest in feminine stitchery, trailing vines, pretty flowers or some sort of beautiful bird she’s heard about in Harper stories. Then again she dresses mostly in breeches and tunics, so she’s a study in contradictions.
Personality: Makani is a strong minded woman, one who knows what she wants and isn’t afraid of going after it knowing full well of the consequences. She’s respectful of her betters and she will listen to them in detail, before nodding acceptance if she doesn’t toe the line and then doing what she deems best. She’s not stupid, in fact she has a keen grasp of how things work and she generally agrees with them. Some might think her harder than a woman should be, because she often gauges what the outcome of an action will be and if it’ll gain her anything before she even considers going through with it. Right down to her liaisons with riders, not that she doesn’t enjoy the results of that regardless.

Information about Makani's dragon
Dragon Name: Raltiath
Age: 3 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: There are those you can look at full in the face and then forget mere moments later. Raltiath will be one of those kinds of dragon.
Personality: Raltiath isn’t a blue to take lightly. For all his colour is considered ‘lesser’, Raltiath will be a dragon to watch, to be wary of. Which makes it ironic that most people and dragons will overlook him until it is too late. He will never want to be one of the leaders of the Weyr, he has little desire to lead or have men or dragons follow him, but he will be good at what he does, and he will expect to be respected and even praised for it. Because Raltiath will be deadly in the air. He’s fast, very fast, sharp and precise. His thread fighting skills will be some of the best in his class and then in his wing.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
