Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Slender almost fragile looking but looks can be deceiving. A little small in the hips but she is still young and busty on top. Her long limbs give her a very willowy appearance.
Personality: Very quiet and shy most of the time, but actually has a very strong will. Tries very hard to be polite and respectful, unfortunately this often gets her walked on because people see it as weakness. But when she loses her temper watch out. No one would guess without knowing her that she can be a good leader when called upon. Has a very strong sense of loyalty and is quick to defend those unable to defend themselves.
History: M6 D13
Information about Novessa's pets
Pet Name: Oichelair
Pet Type: Runnerbeast
Appearance: Standing around 15HH, by no means a big animal. She is a glorious pure black, with a heavy saddle animal build but all can see in her thickly muscled and thick boned body that she hides the strength of a work animal. She is not fast but can run over great distances. She has one crystal blue eye often hidden by her lush long mane. This blue eye is the reason Novessa was given the foal. He father felt the eye was a flaw and would lead to blindness, though to this day no sign have appeared to prove this true.
Personality: Novessa hand raised her making sure that she was well mannered and trained. The result was a elegant and devoted mount and friend. Novessa would spend hours telling her troubles to the sleepy eyed mare that would sign and lovingly nibble the girl as if to say "silly humans just don't undersstand but I do." She was a playmate to many of the children of the Cothold, patiently walking from fence to fence in her pasture giving them rides. Novessa and she were often called upon to help her father drag the feed to the wherever it needed to go.
Second Pet Name: Sage
Pet Type: Green Flit
Appearance: Smaller then average green, with a very long tail and wonderfully delicate features. Her color is very intreging, a very soft warm pale green almost the color of the plant she was named after, but with a creaminess that makes you just want to touch her to see if she is velvety as she looks. Her little feet are a touch darker then her body. Her eye ridges, back ridges and the tip of her tail are so pale that from a distance the look almost a yellowed cream color.
Personality: She became surious not long after Novessa impressed her with a group of wild flits and ventured off with them. Upon her return she has bonded strongly with Novessa never to far though not always in the open a trait Novessa assumes is from staying in the wild for so long. She is working on learning ot care messages and retrieve items for hers, plus socializing.
Information about Novessa's dragon
Dragon Name: Blancath (Cath)
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Artistic Beauty Egg: Beautiful and artistic, this egg will capture the attention of the Weyr artisans, and call to masters as far away as High Reaches. Exquisite symmetrical beauty will inspire glass smiths as they are called to copy this unique design. There are no flaws in this shell whatsoever and while some would turn the egg over and dig it out of the sand to view it in its entirety none would dare to try. Instead, daily sketches are drawn and when Ormanth turns the egg- which she does a few times a day- new sketches are made. Even those not standing on the hatching sands waiting to Impress wonder what magnificent dragon grows within. Some say bronze, it has to be a bronze, only such metallic splendor could be formed from something so perfect. Others disagree commenting on how a wonderful brown would compliment the fine glassy etching. Yet others insisted a blue or a green- all having various reasons to support their theories. It’s a magnificent egg to be sure and come hatching day many are hoping when it cracks open it doesn’t shatter into a million pieces like so many eggs tended to do. Maybe, just maybe they would be able to talk the Impressed pair into letting them piece it back together again, something more than one person was seriously contemplating.
Personality: Blancath is an innocent with an indomitable spirit. She can take adversity
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: We shall see as she grows.
