Name Pronounced: Manny
Appearance: Though a bit short for a full-grown man, Maninhol (or Manny) dosen't let that stop him. With short dark hair, deep brown eyes and a striking face, Manny loves himself even more than he loves the ladies. Always snappishly dressed, even in usually drab uniforms, he manages to turn heads whereever he goes (especially while walking by a mirror: gives him whiplash) He takes scrupulous care of his body, resulting in amazingly clear skin for a teenager and a toned set of muscles that he likes to show off, of course. He looks Turns older than his age due to his seriously handsome face, except while sleeping when a sense of wonder comes back into his face while he dreams.
Personality: Manny's favorite thing is himself, of course, and what makes him look good. Oddly enough, he dosen't talk about himself much, encouraging instead others to open thier hearts to him while wiping down the counter and offering one more drink. He likes girls, too, instinctivly coddling and protecting them which might prove insulting at a liberal place like the Weyr. Most people find him condesending and suck-up-ish, but he geunuinely tries to be helpful in whatever situation possible.
History: Manny, always self-sufficient, has built himself a strong support base. Beginning young by running errands as gopher in seedy places like the Maw, he's worked his way up to bartender with an option for part-ownership at a place with high-class patrons like the Lord Holder. Easy comraderie with the high rollers and bumping elbows with pretty women has given him a hunger for the high life. He loves the added spice of danger as well, and when he wins he just loves the spoils. One high-stakes game (in which he nearly indebted himself to the third generation) won him his fire-lizard. Just one more indication of the lengths he's willing to go to ensure quality for himself.
Information about Maninhol's pets
Pet Name: Huskie
Pet Type: Brown fire lizard
Appearance: A rather stout lizard, strongly built like his mate, Huskie lives up to his name. With a dark dusting of his scales and a long, tactile tail, Huskie is a rather handsome lizard, if you're a green or gold, but indimidating if one of the other lesser males. He's big for a brown, and won't let you forget it.
Personality: Inherenly lazy and a shamless show-off, Manny has a hard time getting him off the sunning perch and running errands. He's the king of his domain, though, everything he can see from his perch is HIS. Huskie has delusions of grandeur, often thinking he's as good as or better than any bronzes he happens to meet.
Information about Maninhol's dragon
Dragon Name: Layseth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Personality: For all intents and purposes this little white (green) hatchling that appears from the Cracked Crystal Egg is amazing. She's a small white (green) but so compact you can readily see all the various definitions of her muscles beneath the white hide she sports. To look at her she's very unassuming really. You think cute and part of you wants to add, helpless to that but you can't. She's amazingly sweet to look at but a lot brighter than you're going to give her credit for based on appearance.
