Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Sasran is long and tall. Extremely tall, actually, standing at 6'3" with more than half of her height in her legs. Her red hair is shoulder length, keeping it out of the way while still being attractive in her opinion. It's usually tied back to keep it out of the way as well. As she's outside a lot, she's tan--for a redhead. Her eyes are sharp and brown, and she doesn't miss much with them.
Personality: Sasran--sometimes just Sas--can live up to her nickname, but prefers to be quiet if she's on duty. After all, Runners have scruples and are supposed to deliver messages, not add their own commentary. She's not really shy, but if she doesn't feel like she measures up for some reason (usually her height) she's apt to get very awkward and nervous.
History: Sasran was born into a family of Runners, and is an only child. Her father, Gotirm, began training her in the family craft almost as soon as she could walk. When she was seven Turns old, she began racing other children her age and discovered she not only _liked_ running, but was really good at it, seeing as she won quite a few of the competitions.
Information about Sasran's pets
Pet Name: Merry
Pet Type: Firelizard
Appearance: Merry is saphire blue, almost entirely the same color save for his wings. Those are a lighter tone, closer to sky blue.
Personality: Merry has the firelizard version of ADD. He's always playing with something, chittering, flitting about, or eating something, but never doing anything for terribly long. His goal in life is to keep Sasran happy, or at least make her laugh. He got his name from this habit. However, he can become quite upset if something bothers him or he's reprimanded, and for anywhere bewtween fifteen minutes and an hour he's extremely bad company.
Information about Sasran's dragon
Dragon Name: Gazaleth
Age: 18 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): StormHearts
Appearance: Hatched 188.8.131.52 from the Emerald Glow Egg
Personality: Gazaleth is a sweetheart, there's just no way about it. She's the type that will knock her rider over for nuzzling as often as possible or getting dragon slobber all over her rider by licking her. She'll chatter to anyone who will listen, or will at least pretend to listen. She will be very sensitive to how other people and dragons will feel and she'll unfortunately take on how those around her are feeling. If those around her are feeling wonderful she'll feel wonderful. If those around her are feeling depressed she'll feel depressed. And if there's a mixture she'll be miserable as she's trying to sort out how she should be feeling.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Gazaleth picks up on others' feelings almost too well, which can often hinder her performance. She's very agile in the air, partly stemming from her competitive nature and partly because of her slightly longer than normal tail. Her competitive nature can drive her to push herself harder than she should at times as well.
