Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Nav is a somewhat pretty young woman who stands a short 5'0. She has glossy wavy black hair which she keeps trimmed short in a bob cut because its easy to take care of *and* fits well under a riding helmet. She has a slight build though she is fairly strong due to taking care of her dragon over the years. Her large eyes are a deep liquid brown, almost black and stand out well on her lightly tanned face. She walks with a limp due to wrenching her knee badly when she was a weyrling but refuses to use a cane though she could probably benefit from one at times. She usually sports a serious intense look on her face but has a pretty smile when she chooses to show it.
Personality: Nav is a quiet young woman who generally likes to listen more then she likes to talk. People often think that she is shy but that is far from the truth, she just doesnt want to fill the air with idle prattle unless she is thoroughly enjoying herself.
History: The daughter of a greenrider, she was the discarded result of a mating flight and spent her childhood growing up in the High Reaches creche. She never sought out the company of her mother as she grew up...she had little desire to speak to the woman who had left her alone though being a child of the Weyr she understood the choice that her mother had made. She was always a serious child which tended to alienate the more carefree children and she often chose to entertain herself rather then be bothered by it.
Information about Nav's pets
Pet Name: Fisherman
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Fisherman or Fish, is a medium sized, long bodied, slightly chunky green. She is a uniform deep forest green except for her hindquarters and tail which are a bright and vivid chartreuse green. The colour separation is clear and it almost looks as if someone had grabbed the poor flit up and dunked her behind in a bucket of paint.
Personality: Fisherman is a bold active green who expects to get her own way in most things, and is not above acting sweet in order to manipulate Nav and Novatoth. She will follow commands and deliver messages but only if shes in the right mood for it, and she will happily leave on her own if shes feeling bored with whatevers going on. She can be surly if pushed and is not above giving a slap to whatevers annoying her at the time.
Second Pet Name: Flash
Pet Type: Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: Flash is a long and lean Callamere bronze flit. His length makes him look a little bigger than he is, and his wide wings add to the effect. His main colouration is a deep dark bronze though his head and neckridges are a brighter, almost burnished brassy shade.
Personality: Flash is extremely protective and mindful of Nav, Fisherman and even Novatoth. He is generally a little standoffish and even suspicious of strange humans at first though he likes other flits and dragons well enough. He eventually will warm up to people that Nav likes or knows well though it may take time and a treat or two. He loves to be petted and fussed over by people he likes.
Information about Nav's dragon
Dragon Name: Novatoth
Wing (Weyrling Group): WeyrlingMasters
Appearance: A strong and muscular blue, Novatoth is on the large side of the blue dragon scale and if not for his colour would be a match for a small brown. His hide is a deep-sea cobalt blue that reveals a rather striking darker blue dapple pattern in the bright sunlight. He knows full well that he is large and beautiful and tends to sit up straight and loom rather then lounge as it makes him appear even larger still. He has an overly long tail which tapers to a thin end and there are two long pale thread scores on it which he is strangely proud of.. they show that he is a fighter after all. He has a habit of tucking his lower lip under his fangs so that they show a little.. he thinks it makes him look dangerous and his Nav doesnt have the heart to tell him otherwise.
Personality: Novatoth has an egostical agressive personality that could put a bronze to shame. He dislikes being looked down on for being a blue and tends to be snooty and sometimes downright rude to the larger dragons much to his rider's dismay though he will be polite to any dragon with a specific rank in the hopes that they would be willing to let him prove himself. He can be condescending towards the smaller blues and greens and secretly feels sorry for them for being smaller then he is... which doesn't tend to win him many draconic friends. He adores his rider and is very possesive of her, and if another rider gets to close to Nav for his comfort he will often snap at the dragon and tell it to make its human 'back off'. On the other hand he loves non-dragon riders, especially candidates because they are more likely to admire him.. and he loves to be told how wonderful he is. He is well spoken when speaking to his rider but tends to be short and to the point with other dragons. He has a stubborn streak and will sometimes be contrary just for the fun of it and his drive to prove himself matches his rider's perfectly.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Because of his size and build Novatoth can last longer in fall then a smaller blue and is a sturdy strong flier with a good flame. He is less agile then he would like to believe at times also due to his size and has been scored on the tail twice as a result of not being able to turn fast enough. He is an aggresive thread fighter and will push himself to the absolute limits if allowed.
