Character type: Dragonhealer
Appearance: Standing at about 5’10, Oradette is a formidable looking young woman. The drudgework and Fort candidate program has done very well for a body that used to be fit, but soft and lazy. She is very well muscled and fit from the turns of hard work. Her strength and quickness is something often not seen in a female… she could throw around a man her size if it came into her head. Often, she will spend her morning in exercises, running laps around the Weyr. Her body doesn’t come easily to her, and she knows how much hard work it takes to stay fit and ready.
Personality: If she were on Earth, she might have been likened to Beast from X-men. A well educated person inside an extremely strong body. From the second Oradette opens her mouth, people know that they’re not dealing with a simple person. Oradette had received the best education her foster parents could get for her and she soaked it up like a sponge. She doesn’t mean too, but often she talks over the people she’s dealing with. Her large vocabulary and innate knowledge of mathematics tends to put a lot of people off. She carries her head high, as if she was a Lord Holder’s daughter herself… something that annoys many people around her. Imagine you had to deal with someone you got distinct impression thought they were better than you. That’s what it’s like with Oradette. She doesn’t win friends that often.
History: Oradette was born into love. Her parents were traders that have been trying to conceive a child for turns, so they saw their first and only daughter as a welcome addition. Oradette spent her young life traveling with the trading camp along with her mother and father, occasionally interacting with the other young ones her age.
Information about Oradette's pets
Pet Name: Skyebloom
Pet Type: Bronze Fire Lizard
Appearance: Skyebloom is a large fire lizard that seems a little out of proportion to himself. His neck and tail are several inches longer than they should be, giving him a stretched out look. His hide is a nice even tannish bronze color except for his belly which is a large splotch of lighter bronze.
Personality: Skyebloom is a goofball. A fun loving fire lizard, he enjoys other games, and will often poke his fellow lizards until they chase him through the air. A flit with the queens, he’ll probably plague Oradette with mating flights.
