Name Pronounced: Nay-lee-na
Appearance: At 5'8", Naylena is taller than average but constant slouching makes this less noticeable. No one would describe her as "willowly" - her shoulders are a bit too broad and keeping active gives her a bit more muscle. Her blonde hair is kept just barely longer than her ears and kept out of the way with a leather headband. When not at work she likes to decorate it with whatever catches her fancy. Light blue eyes look out of a heart-shaped face and carefully take notice of her surroundings. Naylena has fair enough skin that she has to be careful in the sun or be stuck smelling like witch hazel for a few days.
Personality: Naylena isn't one for the spotlight, unsure of herself and hesitant to speak up in public. This leads to her trying her best to hang back and not be noticed. Her tendency is go along with what's expected as she tries to figure out things out and work up her courage. When she does have a opinion on something she will stand firm, quietly, unless she gets carried away and forgets to be shy. While she is quick to smile most of the time it takes something unexpected to surprise a laugh out of her. Once she's comfortable with someone she relaxes a lot more and will actually voice what's on her mind and even get outright giggly.
History: Naylena's family has been at the Arolos Healer CraftHall for as long as she can remember. Her mother Rirosima works as a midwife while her father Raidwir is one of the Hall guards.
Information about Naylena's dragon
Dragon Name: Niwalth
Wing (Weyrling Group): DreamKeepers
Appearance: This dainty little blue isn’t just beautiful, its almost as if there’s something ethereal about how lovely he is. Niwalth is a very pale creature, almost like the colour of fresh snow with an icy blue hue to it and he’s positively radiant in the sun. He’s rather petite for his size, but nearly perfect in conformation, though perhaps a little more sleek than is normal for a blue. He’ll be quick and agile with the grace and elegance of a the smaller females. Truly he’s an amazing specimen of his colour, sure to turn heads wherever he goes.
Personality: Perhaps if he’d been hatched a bronze there would be some arrogance to Niwalth, but it's impossible to mistake this blue for anything but sweet and gentle. There’s almost an annoying amount of innocence to him and he’s pure in his devotion to doing what is right. Humble and caring, it's hard to imagine Niwalth so much as stepping on a trundlebug without the greatest sadness for said squashed critter.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Niwalth is a complete sweetheart... but not good at considering things in the long-term. He reacts immediately to things and faces the consequences afterwards. Since he's still young, trying to stand up for something can mean he misjudges a situation and leaps in pre-emptively.
