Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Petra is taller than average, standing at 5‘8“. Large dark brown eyes sparkle with gentleness, at odds with a narrow face. Full wide lips are often parted with a sweet smile, taking attention away from an upturned nose. Petra's blue-black hair has been cut short into a trim pixie cut that crowns her head and gleams under the light of glows.
Personality: Petra is quiet, with a sweet nature and an easy smile. Very reserved and shy, as she's grown and become more used to Weyr life, she has begun to develop an inner strength and gentility, as well as a calm serenity that adds to make an inner beauty that is striking in it's own right. She is extremely difficult to anger, what little temper she may have is buried deep inside and rarely surfaces. She is soft spoken, and embarrasses easily in the presence of men, never having become comfortable with them. When embarrassed or worried, she tends to stutter and wring her hands, a compulsive habit she has yet to break.
History: Birthing Day: 5th Day of the 3rd Month

Personality: The brown is a chatterbox, and a scamp all rolled into one. He's playful, a bit too much so, and considers himself a ladies flit. All greens and golds should swoon over him as far as he's concerned.
