Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Mikklae, or Mikki as she prefers to be called, has dark skin, blue-grey eyes and sun-streaked light brown/dark blonde hair. Her eyes are slightly almond-shaped and slanted upwards, and her hair is kind of ragged on the edges due to exposure to salt water. Standing at a mere 5'2", she is tiny in anybody's records, but her roguish grin tends to set off her somewhat cute appearence. Mikki's teeth - white, even, and almost too large - are framed by bow-shaped, pale lips and her snub nose is flanked by two round cheeks and dimples. She verges on the plump side, but is losing weight due to the rigours of Weyrling Training and the famine. Her neglected hair fuzzes and curls around elf-pointed ears, and she looks a lot like a Terran pixie - light, smiling, carefree and airy - but her voice is a surprising contralto that is light but full, and all too often filled with mischief.
Personality: Once ripped to mental shreds by a combination of the intense personal shame of being left Standing at two Hatchings and the sudden death of her father, Mikki clawed her way back to her usual (tenuous) grip on reality and sanity to regain her bubbly, mischevious and vivavious personality. She is terrified of dying, however, and that's an unusual trait in a dragonrider - they are usually destined to die an untimely death, and many can accept this fact, but Mikki freaks out every time she thinks about - so she doesn't. She busies herself looking after her beloved Davarth, doing her chores and lessons, pulling pranks with her friends and composing her music. The young greenrider has a peculiar weakness to animals that hate her - that is, every animal on the face of Pern, despite the fact that was raised in a beasthold and can competenly handle most creatures - and can't abide the taste of klah, which is a definite disability to someone who is NOT a morning person and can't wake up fully before noon. She holds grudges for as long as five minutes before forgetting them, and is excellent at keeping secrets. She may not be officially Harper-trained, but she does well enough, and knows enough about politics and tact to survive in most corresponding situations. She's intelligent, and therefore has moments of the kind of utter stupidity that only intelligent people can achieve, and often finds it hard to stop bobbing and bouncing when she walks.

Information about Mikklae's dragon
Dragon Name: Davarth
Age: 2 years
Wing (Weyrling Group): MountainStars
Appearance: A lean little green with a splotchy, olivey hide, Davarth is not, per say, nice to look at. It's not even a nice shade of green, but one that could blend into half-burnt underbrush. No pretty paler underbelly, either, but a darker shade of hide there, and under the long line of her neck. She's never going to be very large, but commands tremendous prescence in every line of that small, haughty body.
Personality: For her personality, imagine the usual proddy green. Now, take that proddy-ness, and add a flair for the dramatic, and unwavering disgust at failures. Mind, it's a flair for the dramatic, and not the melodramatic. Davarth can't stand show-offs, and with her snappy temper may very well lead her to flame the wingtip of a

Abilites and weaknesses: Does making other dragons 'cry' count? ;D
