Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Panthenos was born with light hazel green eyes and dark brown hair but over the turns his hair has lightened considerably. The Southern sun had a hand in altering the darkness to a soft sandy brown with a few blond highlights. While the hair on his head lightened his eyebrows remained steadfastly dark, as well as any other facial hair which he seems to grow in abundance and quickly unfortunately. He's constantly shaving every day where a lot of men seem to get by doing so once a seven day.
Personality: This young man grew up with a semi-serious nature, not one to laugh easily. It wasn't anything traumatic bringing about what some would consider a flaw in his personality, but more of his inbred nature shining through. He took his harper lessons as a child seriously and was very studious. At one point he actually had the harpers thinking he'd be cut out for their craft. It was his single-minded purpose that seemed to change their thinking. P'anthos has been obsessed with being a dragonrider since as long as he could remember. The reason for the seriousness of his lesson taking was brought on by the fact the majority of those lessons had a lot to do with learning about dragons. Even at 19 turns, P'anthos hasn't out grown that obsession, not even now with his becoming a dragonrider himself. He's a bit of a loner, not many wanting to deal with his obsessive need to talk of dragons and for the time being it suits his nature perfectly. Being a Weyrling just might show a whole new side of this young man.
History: Born Prepass.-4.1.10
Information about P'anthos's pets
Pet Name: Thel
Pet Type: Bronze Wher
Appearance: Thel is a dark bronze and a middle sized wher for a bronze. If you stare at Thel's hide you can sometimes make out a few light spots that look to be symbols of some kind though they aren't recognizable.
Personality: This wher is a very determined wher. When it wants something he will find a way to get it even if his Pet doesn't want him to have it. He has a liking for dragons and flits and will easily make friends with them.
Information about P'anthos's dragon
Dragon Name: Marwarth
Age: 3 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Flamespires
Appearance: This brown will roll out of his shell drenched in egg goo, as if he didn’t get to stay in there long enough to absorb most of the nutrients he was supposed to and the extra liquid just gushes out upon the sands. Marwarth will be deemed extremely healthy after his first dragonhealer inspection, but he’s tiny. He’s no bigger than a blue and most of his limbs and features just seemed to be miniaturized somehow. His head knobs and tail will seem a touch out of proportion to his size, as if he’ll never fully grow into either- and he won’t.
Personality: Hatched: 8.16.01.22
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: He is fast in flight and agile in as any blue. He is confident and takes the lead when he needs to.
