Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Ranennae stands at a height of 5'6" after her last and final growth spurt. Her body though is already one with a muscled torso and long athletic legs. Her breasts are small, more like apple shaped obviously they are undersized. Her hands and feet are both really small and delicate looking and are obvious as well they offset her muscular look. She has wavy dark red hair that she keeps in a braid though pieces do escape because it is hard to handle. She has a square face that isn't beautiful nor pretty but can be described as handsome. For it it is full of character and personality as well as being vividly alive. Grey green eyes and a generous mouth add more to this woman's look. She definitely has a spare hard edged beauty. Her back has a long scar from a fall and her hands are callused. Like her half brother she has well-tanned, caramel skin but it still burns.
Personality: Ranennae is an interesting woman to say the least. She has what people would call an over-hasty tongue; not in saying what she shouldn't but doing so too sharply and scathingly though she has gotten a lot better about curbing her tongue. She speaks truth clearly and often without sugarcoating things. A hot temper that is slow to cool though even that she is trying to control as well as an ability to hold, even treasure grudges long past the time when they should have been buried and died add more to her personality though in all honesty a part of her wants to be able to forgive and let it go. She tends to fling herself into the midst of disagreements before she understands them basing her response on what just happened rather than what lead up to the situations. She is impatient with fools and scornful of those who are lead by emotions rather than logic and she takes no care to hide it either. Despite all her faults she is loyal, faithful, truly caring and intelligent. She is not afraid of her intelligence and tries to do the best she can within her abilities to be considerate of others as often as herself. she has a big sense of responsibility and justice built in.
History: Ranennae was born to a bluerider Fir'nen and a greenrider out of a flight. The greenrider had previously given him a son Radheg but betweened in an accident shortly after Ranennae was born. At the age of three her father transferred from the weyr in Telgar down to Arolos taking them with him because it was the right thing to do. She and her older brother were left to the care of the creches. Four turns later though her father weyrmated to a journeyman dragonrider who born him her little half-brother Firdenrard. she was instantly jelous because he was getting attention while she and her true brother were left to the creche. One day while all of the children were out at the lake getting some lessons by the crech mothers she slipped and hit her back against a jagged rock. The healers took good care of her and she made a good recovery despite the fact she'd always carry the scar. Shortly after she found out her father had died from a human tunnel snake raid, apparently a gang had loosed some tunnel snakes and her father had died saving her young half brothers. She moved on with her life when she turned twelve she went to be a crafter and chose to do the chemist part of smithcrafting. Her older brother having already left to become an apprentice miner sent her a gift of some marks and with it she brought herself a flit egg which came a green she called Gwena. More years past as she crafted but soon the idea of becoming a rider was to great to resist so went to the acms to ask them if she could be a candidate. Which happened rather recently shortly after the last hatching in fact so now she is a candidate. She meets up with her younger brother and makes two enemies but spends a goldflight with a very handsome candidate. She actually finds an ally in an euqally logical male named Leonard. she stands and doesn't impress glad that 'firdy' also didn't impress. She makes her first female friend in a girl named Rhenna. She also spends the ext goldflight with a nice bluerider. Rane gets together with her best friend Leo and decides they should date. Then the clutch occures and to her shock and infinite delight she hears ((Ranennae you see that that thing is a monster, don´┐Żt you?)) and finds herself impressed to blue Indihath on 126.96.36.199. Leo her love does but her other friend Rhenna does quite a sad thing to say goodbye. Rane watches her brother impress to a bronze and approaches him with a heartfelt apology. She gets a wher egg for Indihath and it hatches 188.8.131.52 into a green she calls Terra. She graduates and finds in front of her door a knives with bits of her owndragons shell in its hilt. At the end of the hilt of the knife was a small, carved dragon's head. It seemed to be a functional piece, but still made to be used if she chose. She had no idea who it actually was from but she suspected it might be from the Lady Kassia. She watches as Leo *finally*impresses his blue. Things though go downhill as Leo her mate tells her he wants to go north after graduation.

Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Gwena is a very light green and not a single darker shade of green marks her tiny hide. And she is tiny and very delicate looking almost as though she could break.
Personality: Despite her delicatness, Gwena is a headstrong little green. She'd easily match heads against her pet to try and help her do what the little flit feels she sould be doing. she is very helpful in many ways and would definitely try and protect her pet if she had to.
Second Pet Name: Terra
Pet Type: Green Wher
Appearance: This green is quite large for her color. She's the size of a small blue in bone and muscle mass. Her paws are enormous compared to the rest of her and much heavier. She will leave deep footprints behind her wherever she walks if the surface will allow. Her claws are equally proportionate to her paws. Her tail is naturally thick and heavy and, when she's distracted, can easily send things and people flying. Her eyes are small for a wher but her eye ridges are long and narrow. Her color is a mossy green on top then it blends into an olive green towards her legs and belly. She also has a spot of the same olive green on her snout, a spot on her back , and a part of her wing.
Personality: She is a very hard and very loyal worker and will do anything her handler asks. Unless, of course, she spies something much smaller than herself. Then she'll want to run over and put it on her back. She enjoys lying in the grass and especially near rocks.
Information about Ranennae's dragon
Dragon Name: Indihath
Age: 3 turns 10
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Indihath's unusual hide is covered in an ever changing hue of blues reminiscent of a flickering flame. Decorating his hide are hues from the lightest blue possible to the darkest blue and everything in between. Indihath will always be small and petite for a blue, just a little bit bigger than the biggest green. And if a blue's frame could ever be considered almost feminine, this lithely built blue would fit the bill.
Personality: Indihath will thrive on adventure, and if that adventure leads him to some small, dark, unexplored place all the better. He may just become known as the class escape artist as he tries to sneak off in the middle of the night to explore some new nook or cranny. And it's just as likely he'll try to find a shiny or other object to bring back to his lifemate. Even when he's far too big to explore most caves he'll want to go flying off away from the Weyr and explore the forests and lands elsewhere.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: With this need for adventure, Indihath could find himself in danger because of doing things that are too risky. But he'll also be willing to make riskier rescues and thus may save a few lives, and possibly risk many more, as he tries to save fellow wingmates during Thread.
