Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: O'tan still hasn't quite grown out of the stereotypical preteen messiness even though he's been at the Weyr - and a Weyrling - for more than a turn now. His shaggy, sandy blonde hair just misses getting into his brown eyes and when he isn't in uniform, it's quite common to find him wearing clothes that don't quite always match each other. But it is a fact that without his tendency to untidiness, there is very little to set O'tan apart from anyone else. He's cute without being too attractive and he's right in the middle ranges for both height and weight - but he smiles easily and has lots of energy to get through the day.
Personality: Mangto was a sweet little boy who's growing up into a well-adjusted, if occasionally naive young man. Most of the time with teasing he can give as good as he gets as long as it stays good-hearted, though occasionally he may need a moment or two to think. He notices girls now more, but it's still fairly easy for him to be embarrassed, even though he has spent his Weyrling turns with a number of older girls around.
History: Omney and Mangto are from the same family and grew up in and around Callamere Hold. Mangto's childhood was relatively safe and protected, though of course he was affected by the same disasters that everyone else has faced over the last 14 turns and the occasional trouble or injury that comes with being an active boy. When he was old enough to decide on his life path, he was rather conflicted. Should he become a holder like his parents? Follow his older brother who he idolized into the Guards? Or maybe a beastcrafter or a hunter or something equally useful. It took a few months, but finally he decided that joining the tannercraft - specificially to make harnesses for runnerbeasts and herdbeasts - seemed interesting enough for something to do for the rest of his life.
Information about O'tan's dragon
Dragon Name: Rorth
Wing (Weyrling Group): FeastCrashers
Appearance: Rorth is a quieter-seeming blue, content to not stand out. He has finally grown out of his 'teenage gawkiness' phase though he hasn't quite got the size of other dragons - and indeed may never be particularly bulky. His unmarred hide is a dark blue shade, close to a deep cobalt colour.
Personality: Rorth at first glance, is humble, one who knows his place in the ranks of dragonkind, timid around the rankers and cautious when it comes to the unknown. But despite all of this he will face his fears down and learn to cope, especially when it comes to protecting his loved ones. Though he will be prone to a bit of sourness and sarcasm when its time to do something unpleasant, yet necessary.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Rorth and O'tan are still somewhat reckless and prone to believe they will come out of things unscathed because of a lack of experience.
