Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Saidey is...well, the only world could be beautiful. She has dark brown hair that has grown out so that it now ends just below her chest, and the entire mass falls in a riot of gentle waves and curls. Her eyes are a light blue in color, and very expressive of her emotions. Often they can be seen twinkling with merriment and good humor. Her nose is not to long or short, rather Grecian in fact, and just right as she likes to say. Her mouth is full and firm, as if it were made for pouting or kissing.
Personality: Being of a mild temperment, she tends to be a little harder to make angry. Once she is angry it is hard to calm her down, though, and she has been known to throw things.
History: Saidey was born at High Reaches Weyr, to her green rider father and her crecheworker mother. This worked out rather good as she spent most of her time with her mother. She never saw her father, as he never really came around much since her mother was not a rider. Saidey never minded not having a father or brothers and sisters. The creche kids were, in a way, her brothers and sisters and she was never alone.
Information about Saidey's pets
Pet Name: Shiva
Pet Type: Flit
Appearance: Just like the egg she hatched from, this green draws attention, and you can be quite sure that she knows it. Her hide is a deep, cool green, but with an odd frost-like quality that makes it appear almost metallic. At several places her shade merges into teal, most specifically along her headknobs, tail, and wingbones. Her wingsails are adorned with swirling, intricate patterns of the same blue-tinted hue. In terms of physique she is almost flawless, with a beautifully sculpted wedge-shaped head, long neck, slender wings and body, and very thin, almost decorative tail. Poised and refined, despite her smaller size she can manage to look down her nose at almost anyone, and without ever resorting to such silly things as angry cries or foolish happy squawks. No, this is a silent one, and the occasional low, approving croon or challenging cry should be taken quite seriously.
Personality: 'Ice queen' will likely be the most immediate verdict after meeting this haughty, cold green. She is a creature of supreme and utter confidence, secure in herself and her superiority. She is not vocal about this – after all, her beauty and grace is so painfully self-evident, why should she possibly lower herself to parading it around? She is much more likely to simply disregard someone than to display her irritation or get into a fight – that really would be just beneath her. If she is engaged in her own business, she is unlikely to interrupt it for anyone, though she is not quite icy enough to completely disregard all company – there will be those she finds tolerable, though they may be few and far between. To those few males she permits to court her she will be a bit warmer, though by any other measure she would still be quite reserved, and any favor – even her
Information about Saidey's dragon
Dragon Name: Ornith
Age: 9 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Ornith is a larger blue, nearly the size of a small brown. His hide is ocean blue in color, no swirls of dots of darker or lighter, except on his wing tips, which are a slightly darker shade. His tail is whip-like, yet on the shorter side. He looks slightly bulky, yet most of it is muscle. Ornith's neck is a little on the long side, finished in a perfectly wedge-shaped head. He takes pride in his wings, which are larger to befit his size and bulk.
Personality: Ornith is more of a serious dragon. He likes to look at everything from a serious point of view, and often counter-balances his rider's laid-back view on things. He can be fun, however, and loves the water as much as the next dragon. He also loves to chase the fish around. Why, the world may never know.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Being a larger blue, he has marvelous staying power, and can last through the larger part of the longer falls. But he isn't the most agile thing in the world.
