Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: R'sil is definitely cute. Longish brown hair, bleached almost blonde from the Southern sun, hangs to his shoulders and constantly in his face. He generally refuses to tie it back though, insisting that it makes him look girly. His eyes are a pale blue, one that almost matches his dragon. Straight teeth and a charming smile complete his ever young-looking face. He's almost always grinning about something.
Personality: Irresponsible, annoying, infuriating- take your pick. While he doesn't -try- to be, well, irritating, R'sil can often be quite a pest. Badgering people can often be like a game to him, and if you don't wanna be around him, TOO BAD! He's not leavin' any time soon. He seems to like making people slightly uncomforatable by walking up and just talking to them. Especially if he doesn't know them. He hates to be rejected, in any manner, and will probably try to make a game of it by following you around/ stalking you if you do. As for the irresponsible part, well, there're only two things that he's -ever- taken a responsibility over, a flit egg he once had -it was a dud- and Alairth. Though he's developed a keen sense of responsibility for weyrmate Sasse and their son, Sassil. He's extremely protective of them both at times. Though other times he's still as much of an idiot as he's always been.
History: Resil's parents were harpers, and they expected he would be one too. When he was young anyway. As he grew up, they soon realized that he was, well, not exactly fit to be an apprentice. As well as being a pest, his musical abilities were probably worse than a decapitated wherry's, and besides, who needs to study when you can stare out the window and daydream about dragons? When he turned 16, his father gave him a small flit egg, hoping that maybe he'd develop some type of responsibility. He did, but not for his studies- instead, his every waking moment was spent worrying over his egg. When he was Searched, the egg came to Arolos with him as well as his parents' relief that he was finally out of their hair.
Information about R'sil's pets
Pet Name: Gnat
Pet Type: firelizard
Appearance: Gnat is a very small bronze, only about as big as a brown. He is a deep, dark bronze color.
Personality: Alairth has definitely rubbed off on him. Gnat's an idiot who enjoys playing, doing whatever Alairth wants him to, playing, annoying R'sil, and playing. He gets excited easily and often mimics anything he sees Alairth do. He's all but useless as a messenger.
Information about R'sil's dragon
Dragon Name: Alairth
Age: 3 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Weyrling Wing (Under 16)
Appearance: SPROING! A vibrant, nearly neon sky-blue body pushes itself into your range
Personality: Alairth is well-suited to his body, for he shares a disdain for slowness
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Because of the shape of his wings, he'll have more agility than most blues, though his stamina might not be as great. His biggest weakness is deep thinking of any kind. If he doesn't understand something and he thinks it's taking you too long to explain it, he'll leave to go catch bugs.
