Name Pronounced: Na -lon
Appearance: N'lon is not a man whom one would assume a bronzerider at first glance. He is not a relatively tall man, standing at a maximum of 6' 4". Through years as a dragonrider his unnervingly fragile-appearing build has gained enough firm, toned muscle to constitute lithely athletic. His gate seems more feline than human. He seems to glide along. N'lon has developed a slight tan it isn't the deep golden bronze but it is a light golden color. All in all, his proportionate build is necessarily eye-catching.
Personality: N'lon is most easily categorized as the helpful best-friend type. He'll be there for you when you need him and support you no matter the time of day, sticking by your side with a loyalty that could almost be considered a fault. If you need taking care of, he can provide it. He will offer a kind accolade or an inspiring word when the situation calls for it, stand by your side to face whatever comes your way, or even fight your battles for you if you ask.
History: N'lon was born Nalonen to a pair of Journeyman Weavers named Norilk and Talana near High Reaches Hold as the youngest of three boys. There was much competition between the three boys, most of which lead to healthy sibling rivalries and the usual boyhood banter. He was raised according to tradition and his parents tried to instill those determinations in young Nalonen, but blatantly failed. He was a free spirit in comparison to the rather traditionalist attitudes of his peers, something he learned to hide rather than be ridiculed for.

Information about N'lon's dragon
Dragon Name: Nirumoth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Flamespires
Appearance: Nirumoth is a large dragon even by bronze standards, allowing him to stand atleast a full head taller than the smaller bronzes. His hide is a bright copper, lighter amber highlights and burnished sienna undertones make his exact shade appear to never be the same from any angle. Lighter amber marbling artistically etches his legs which lighten to an almost tannish hue near his claws, similar swirling painted across his majestic wingspan of a darker color provide a different accent.
Personality: Nirumoth is your typical arrogant bronze. He believes he owns the Weyr; something he makes clear to anyone that chooses to defy him. He aspires for greatness, something N'lon would have preferred he didn't, and refuses to stand on the outside missing all the fun if something is happening on the 'inside'. Cocky, self-confident, and very posessive, he would probably qualify as the High School bully on Terra. And though his maliciously demanding attitude may get him into some tricky spots, he's as quick-witted as he likes to boast and will frequently charm his way out of a bad situation if able.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Strength provides him with speed and an endurance some can only wish for, but those boons were gifted at the price of his manueverability. He's quite an excellent Threadflier, but his size makes dodging renegade Threads difficult.
