Name Pronounced: My-seer-ah
Appearance: Myceera has a delicate heart-shaped face, but it's the only delicate thing about her. She's sturdy of form with lightly muscled arms and legs, squared shoulders, broad hips, and a full chest. At only 5'4, this can lead to her looking stocky, or even fat, in the wrong clothing. Her face is pretty enough with wide blue eyes, a short, straight nose, and wide mouth. Her hair, dark brown in colour, is usually described as wavy, though some days it's almost straight, and some it's almost curly. Most days it's unmanageable. She keeps it cut short, just below chin length, and it's usually obvious that she cuts it herself.
Personality: She may look like a hard worker, but Myceera can be a bit flighty. She's always found it hard to commit herself to one task. She's got a quick mind, and a lot of energy, though. When she finds something she's passionate about, she can focus on it so intensely that she excludes everything else. These bouts of intensity are infrequent though. On most days Myceera is fun-loving and highly social. She avidly follows talks of the latest trends and fashions, though she never follows them herself.
History: Myceera was the third of four children, the second girl. She was born barely a year after her older sister, Armenia, and the two fought continuously. At the same time, she grew jealous when anyone spent more time with her than she did. She has the closest bond with Armenia, perhaps because she lacked the immense amount of respect and hero worship she felt for their older brother. Surprisingly though, she spends almost as much time with Jalyson, the younger brother, who's a good seven turns younger than her. All together she's had a happy, hold-born life, with an apprenticeship within the tailorcraft. She's not overly creative, so she'll never advance far within the craft, but she can turn out a decent product. The family moved south to Forest Edge, where Myceera was trying to wrangle a new apprenticeship. However, barely days after their arrival, she was searched.
Information about Myceera's pets
Pet Name: Gil
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: Gil is a grey female, with darker striations down her back. Full grown, she's not much larger than she was at six months. Her face is angular, with large ears. Her tail is long and thin. She has a white patch on her chest that thins and stretches down her belly.
Personality: Gil is a pampered creature, and she hates going outdoors. She very firmly considers Myceera's weyr to be her home, and won't venture beyond it's demesnes without being forced. She's content to spend most of her time alone, but demands attention in the evenings. She has her own section of play toys, and guards it zealously. Even Myceera is forbidden entry into her area.
Information about Myceera's dragon
Dragon Name: Oiramith
Wing (Weyrling Group): SandConquerors
Appearance: Oiramith is small. Despite being closer in size to a large green, he's definitely a blue but a blue that barely meets the standard height of his colour. Stretching a little he makes it, but not by much. Oiramith, has a rather impressive name for such a small blue. . For all that his length is at the very end of the scale, Oiramith is a bit robust. He isn't fat though, oh no, it’s all muscle on this short guy. So what if he has a short neck, a large head with a big muzzle, his eyes are big too and so are his hind and fore paws. He doesn’t look disproportionate not to the point he’ll be ridiculed or a laughingstock to his rider, but that doesn’t make him any less striking with all his attributes.
Personality: From the start people are going to think this blue won’t amount to much but they are going to be shocked. He’s very fast even on the ground. He loves to jump and while he’ll content himself with jumping just a little bit, there are going to be times he leaps so high in his jumps you can’t believe your eyes. He doesn’t just jump to jump though, he’ll be jumping over things and it doesn’t matter what type of things. Don’t be surprised if this little guy with his powerful hind legs starts jumping over people, much to their dismay.
