Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Roguishly handsom features are carved into a proudly tanned, youthen face. Hair of blackened auburn is cropped short at the shoulder and usually swept up and somewhat tamed in a haphazard runnerstail at the nape of her neck. Sturdy, defined eyes the hue of a stormy sea sky shift endlessly between dark grey and a blue to rival even the deepest of the salty brine. A dress has never been allowed to soil her sea roughened skin, well bronzed under the sweltering rays of the sun. She prefers, rather, soft leather breaches and a cotton tunic to match, color irrelevant so long as they aren't displeasing to the eye, as well as a pair of soft souled boots to accompany the ensemble if she's even in the mood to be wearing shoes. Tomboy barely even begins to scracth the truth's surface with this young maid.
Personality: Stubborn, the word in itself that might serve to sum her all up in a nice neat package. She carries a lot of pride in what she does, who she is and what she stands for and this more often than not tends to rub off as tenaciously stubborn to most. She loves a hearty challange and will apt not turn down any that someone will cast her way. Some might call her reckless because of it, but she preferes to call it passion. If she beleives the cause is just she fight for whatever or whoever is behind it. If it is something she loves to do, she is obedient in her tasks and carries them out with a fervor to match any dragon's fire. Quitting is not in her vocabulary, nor is letting those around her lose hope. She knows well enough when to holster that lighting that crackles behind those stormy eyes, for the most part, to keep herself from getting into too much trouble. To match her tomboyish ways she prefers to be known as Shael. Fair luck to any who seek to catch and properly tame this young lass into the petite lady some think she needs to be.
History: Shael is the proud daughter of a Seacrafter born in the protective coves of Thonet Hold. Her mother, Yamera, sadly passed in fever and weakness shortling after giving life to tiny Shaelere. So her father, Imain, did his best to raise his energetic daughter on his own. Shael was never much for the sewing, dolls and other girlish things the other hold ladies tried to amuse her with. Instead, she was fascinated with Seacrafting from the instant her tiny fingers could wrap themselves around a twine of rope. From then on she was like a shadow to Imain, soaking in anything he or his shipmates saw fit to teach her. As she grew the tomboyishness such an upbringing held didn't fade, instead it strengthened in both spirit and appearance. As soon as she was of age she officially apprenticed under Liern, captain of the Dawnfire and well loved family friend. She worked well and hard, quickly disbarring any patriarcal ideas that she was a weak home-maker that should have well been left ashore before they arose to matter, to the extreme that most who know her think of her as merely a strangely pretty boy. She, to some psychiatric point, has even managed to convince herself of this in her years of strutting around like one. Hence her bisexual tendancy, she tolerates pairing with a man but mostly for lack of any other sport, she fancies chasing after flattering young ladies to be much more fun. Her history explains her masculine air and firm desire to prove herself, whether on the Dawnfire, or if fate sees fit, amidst her peeres on the hatching grounds. She's ready to face life and whatever challenges it holds for her.
Information about Shaelere's pets
Pet Name: Brine
Pet Type: Kitten
Appearance: Brine was the runt of his litter so he's an the smaller end as far as kittens go and has remained on the smaller end up through adult hood. He's completely black that reflects the slightest hints of brown in brighter lighting, save for the off white splotch on the left side of his nose that seems to throw his entire face a bit off-kilter. He has kiteenish-ly large light green eyes that suit his coat very handsomly.
Personality: Despite his small size, Brine is the most tenacious little thing. He absolutely loves to play 'attack kitty' with his pet's ankles, hair, hands, what have you. However, he knows when people are paying attention to him and has the uncanny ability ot ham it up and get the most scratching/petting he can out of the encounter.

Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Neilth's speed and confidence combine to make his strogest asset. However, his love of games and lack of seriousness often take a bit more coaxing from Shael in order for them both to perform as well as his and her potentials dictate.
