Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Quios is still growing into his five-feet-nine-inches and his hands and feet. Prone to tripping over his own feet, he nevertheless stands taller than his friends. With a shaggy mane colored golden-brown and grim-looking eyes the color of a vivid green sea, he is the more serious member of the trio. His skin is heavily freckled, which can make him seem younger than he actually is. Tall and lithe, he'll be graceful once he gets used to his height.
Personality: Quios can be serious. Well, more often than Bruin or Teknun anyway. Born in a hold unlike his two close friends, he's a little confused over what to think about Teknun liking guys, but decided he'd think on it when they're both older. Shy around girls but commanding around his friends, he can be a leader as long as it doesn't involve talking to girls, at which point he becomes very, very flustered (much to Teknun and Bruin's amusement). Though now that he has Haafsanth that won't be changing anytime soon. But the bronze will certainly be forcing him into situation where he'd have to deal with females.
History: Quios was born in a hold near Ista Weyr. At age thirteen, he was Searched, and moved to the Weyr to immediately befriend the two biggest troublemakers of the place. Enjoying the havoc they brought, he nevertheless straightened out once he was threatened with being sent home. Not that he didn't like the hold, of course. It was just.... Why would anyone choose being a holder over a dragonrider? When Teknun told him about Arolos, he couldn't contain his curiosity, and off they went.
