Name Pronounced: rye-ANN
Appearance: A sultry southern beauty, Rhyann is nothing if not easy on the eyes. She has striking features: high cheekbones and dark, expressive eyes, lush lips. She favors long chestnut curls and dramatic eye-makeup, both of which she's willing to go to a lot of trouble for. She spends a healthy amount of money procuring quality kohl for her eyes at Gathers and from merchants, and a healthy amount of time maintaining her long hair. When riding or doing anything strenuous, of course, she's forced to tie her curls tightly back to keep them out of her way.
Personality: Rhyann's inner strength is apparent to anyone who meets her. She's a confident woman, self-assured in a way that sometimes intimidates people until they get to know her. Her wit can be a little dry, and sometimes her tendencies toward brutal honesty can be a little off-putting.. but no one will ever say that she hid the truth from them, or sugar-coated something that they needed to hear. She's a loyal friend and lover.. but that loyalty won't spare her loved ones her blunt nature.
History: The result of a brief affair between a bronzerider and greenrider, Rhyann and her twin were raised together in the creche at Ista Weyr. They were happy children; they got into the appropriate amount of childhood mischief, made the appropriate amount of friends... and waited for the day that they would find the lifemates destined for hem.
Information about Rhyann's pets
Pet Name: Puzzle
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: This boy is large for his color, far out-sizing other flits of his color. He is built more like a brown than a blue, with a sturdy frame and a strong form. He has a determined, slightly harsh looking face which many will mistake for one of scorn, but this blue has no time for such pointless things.
Personality: The Flit of Evilís Bane. Or so he would have you believe! This firelizard has an incredibly strong sense of justice and righteousness and will go to any length to ensure the protection of the vulnerable.
Information about Rhyann's dragon
Dragon Name: Medrinth
Age: 4 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Medrinth is a sleek green, the color of dark, burnished jade from the tip of her nose to the end of her tail. Her wings are kelp-colored. There's also some lighter coloring about her neck, giving her the impression of wearing an emerald-colored necklace for decoration. All in all, she's very elegant, very regal.
Personality: Medrinth is perhaps one of the most carefree dragons in existence. She lives to, well, *live*, and to dream, and to laugh, and to love, and - well, generally, to have a good time. She's also a little bit of a daredevil - she'll do anything once, as long as it *looks* fun, and thus is incredibly dramatic in flight, taking high twists and narrow turns that other dragons could only *dream* of attempting. This has, of course, gotten her a few more scrapes and bruises than the average green, but she wears her scars proudly. After all, they're proof that she enjoys life...right?
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Medrinth's daredevil nature means that she often attemps death-defying feats - even during Threadfall. She wants to rescue -everyone-, and sometimes tries to be in too many places at once - or she forgets about the Thread above her when making an incredibly dramatic twist, turn, -flame- at the Thread below her. Her rider has long since learned little tricks to keep her focused, and once she's learned how to function within a specific wing, she works like clockwork within it. It just takes time for her to *fit*.
