Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Brown-eyed and black-haired (Cut fairly short), medium-tall (about 5í7Ē Ė 8 hand-spans). Callused hands and sunburnt skin from Turns on fishing ships, followed by time as a rider in the hot South. Rian is quite strong and fairly handsome.
Personality: Quiet and soft-spoken, and somewhat shy at times. He doesnít like speaking to strangers or groups of people as he had a speech impediment growing up. Even though he managed to get over it physically, he hasnít gotten over it psychologically yet, often stuttering around strangers. Impressing Drurith, however, has more or less put a stop to that, and the stutter only appears when he's extremely nervous about something. If something needs to be said or done, however, he *will* say/do it.
History: Born: 03.17, 13 years before the present Pass
Information about Rian's dragon
Dragon Name: Drurith
Wing (Weyrling Group): StormHearts
Appearance: ShadowSweep - by Heyoshath, out of Juleth
Personality: Drurith knows that someday, his will be Weyrleader. However, that will require Drurith to catch the senior Queen, and as yet, the bronze has shown a marked lack of talent for chasing. Rian suspects this is due to the events of his first flight, though Drurith himself has forgotten the specifics (or even generalities) of the event.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Actually quite ordinary, for a bronze - neither particularly speedy nor slow, not really agile but doesn't move like a stuffed wherry. He does seem, however, to have recieved his rider's talent of predicting wind change.
