Character type: Dragonrider
Personality: Oltarya is a thinker. She'll mull over things where others tend towards being impulsive. She's always the last one to agree to a daring adventure and it's not through fear she hesitates. She likes to think through all possible scenarios of a situation so she is prepared for anything that might crop up. Going diving into the deep narrow trench? She wants to know what length of rope will be tied around her waist, who will be manning the rope and what will they do if the rope is accidentally cut on a piece of sharp shale. She is overly cautious with reason. Her mother was overprotective and it was only through persistance that she ever broke through her teachings and took on the dangerous profession of diving.
History: Oltarya grew up at Atoll Hold raised by her father- an older seacrafter who lost both his legs below the knees in a shipping accident, and her mother who was supposed to be barren. When her mother caught pregnant at long last, she worshipped the ground Oltarya laid, crawled and walked on.
Information about Oltarya's dragon
Dragon Name: Glowith
Age: 18 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Bright and perky in attitude right from the shell, Glowith in color is actually darker. His navy blue hide is speckled by faint flecks of a stormy sky peeking out, perhaps in reference to his muddled thought process. Well, they're not quite muddle but Glowith's thoughts go in a straight line without a break... unlike his large lanky body that can't get anywhere without stumbling over something, somebody or some part of himself. Coordinating the long limbs isn't easy for this dragon who's thoughts tend to be about completely irrelevant issues. Once Glowith gets started on something there is no distracting him until either there is no more subject or the blue falls asleep. His single-minded attention makes it difficult for the blue to learn anything that isn't related to what is currently on his mind. His rider will certainly has an interesting time trying to get Glowith to focus on weyrling lessons.
Personality: Given his relative unconcerned reaction to tumbles or missteps it will be clear that Glowith has no care about whether he is graceful. Just so long as he gets to his destination then all is well in the world. And what's his destination? It varies but more often than not this blue adores draping himself upon sunny rocks, though when he is still small he prefers laps and people over the stones. His rider will more than likely be a perch for the hatchling until Glowith gets too big for that activity.
