Name Pronounced: Sha-lan
Appearance: Sh'lan is 5'5" and weights less than he should being only at only 100lbs. due to a high metabolism and some psychological issues that spurred up in his life. If he begins to gain too much for his liking he’ll go without eating for days at a time until he's dropped back down. He tends to hide the fact that he is so under weight by wearing clothes that are a size or so too big unless M'night can convince him otherwise. His Brownish black hair is short and straight. He keeps it cut to just at his shoulders. His eyes are dark seawater blue. Sh'lan has the same problem with his air complexion and sun burning though he hardly dresses down enough to burn he is more suceptable to heat related problems.
Personality: Sh'lan has a very twisted personality. One moment he's friendly and cheery the next he's volatile as hell. He's sometimes very absent-minded. There are moments he doesn't like being around too many people, but one on one he can open up somewhat and that person may be able to coax him into a gathering. He's always up for a mind game and possibly telling riddles.
History: Sh'lan is the elder brother of Midnight (M’night when he impressed). He was born to Nytisha of Green Liath and B'velle of Bronze Xeneth at Telgar Weyr a month and a half early. He and his brother were raised in the crèche by a worker named Mihera though they were able to see their parents often due to the fact that the pair would bring their children down to help them care for their dragons.

Dragon Name: Vemerith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Vemerith is a robust dragon with a distinctive head and slender neck. Vemerith is a very strange colored dragon with a beautiful pattern. The base color is a beautiful sky blue with darker blue markings. Over his body is a broken pattern of these darker blue markings. Down his tail the broken pattern solidifies into banding of the same color. The top of his head and along the line of his lower jaw is the same light blue as his body with a Dark blue stripe on each side of his face spanning from the nostril over his eyes and connecting at the back of his head. His under belly neck and tail are a deep midnight blue.
Personality: Vemerith is the strong silent type. He tends to be very controlling when it comes to his rider. Ever since the hatching the dragon knew something was wrong with his life partner that no one else had foreseen. He is quite friendly to everyone and enjoys the company of flits sharing his kills with any who come to call. He has even been known to befriend wild whers though this is only when he goes off alone without Sh’lan, which cannot be often.

Abilites and weaknesses: Sh’lans mood swings is the only thing that holds the pair back.
