Name Pronounced: Praise
Appearance: Tall at 6'3" Pr'ase is a well built man that gets a pouch about his middle during the winter when he refuses to do absolutely anything more than he has to. He has brown hair that curls if it gets too long, he doesn't let it get to that point, ever. He has dark green eyes that really are unremarkable. Pr'ase is also a very hairy man from head to toe. It's the firm set of his square jaw and his long, thin aquiline nose that gives him the little bit of handsomeness he possesses.
Personality: Some would label Pr'ase grumpy and they'd have a point, but it's really a facade. He's got a huge heart that is extremely biased when it comes to Candidates. Does that mean he lets them walk all over him? On the contrary, he comes across rather harsh at times because Pr'ase is a firm believer in tough love. He wouldn't reprimand you if he didn't care. He wouldn't assign you punishments if he weren't trying to build your character and prepare you for your future. Pr'ase has a dry sense of humor, and he's a workaholic, but not in the sense one might think. He hates doing paper work of any sort. He will however end up spending the night in the barracks working double and sometime triple shifts because he cares about his Candidates. Yes, they're all his whether they're his or not.
History: Born in Fort Weyr, Pr'ase grew up a son of a brownrider, who was a son of a brownrider, who was a son of a... you got it, brownrider so far back they can trace it in the archives endlessly. It was no surprise when at age twelve he impressed his brown and life truly began for him. He'd lived in the creche and was raised strictly by the women there and his father who would visit once a seven day to drill him on the previous seven day. He never knew who his mother was and never asked.
Information about Pr'ase's dragon
Dragon Name: Gloryith
Wing (Weyrling Group): CandidateMasters
Appearance: A milky brown like that of over washed leathers, Gloryith has a darker brown marking between his headknobs that reminds Pr'ase of a twisted star. He's a big brown, well muscled and like his rider he puts on weight during the winter months even in the South. Gloryith's wingspan is a large one, slightly out of proportion to his body but it's never hindered him since Weyrling training. He has a threadscore in a lacy pattern on his right flank, silvery streaks that cut into the brown hide rather prettily really.
Personality: This brown is typical in most ways. He's a father figure for any that he thinks need a bit of fathering. He'll go out of his way to be helpful, sometimes to the point of being annoying. He's not very talkative to any other than his rider but if he takes you into his trust he'll at least answer your questions.
