Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Standing at 6'˝", Shigura is a tall woman. She is slender with long black hair spilling down to her shoulder blades that ends to hide her face. Mysterious, icy, cold and piercing dark brown eyes that gaze continuously out from her delicately shaped face but on any other person they might show life and light but these show nothing. Her skin is very fair which causes many burns that don't stay long. She would be very beautiful if it weren't for those eyes of hers. In fact if her eyes just were softer somehow then she'd be almost alluring in fact she is very alluring if she ever wanted to be.
Personality: Shigura is an enigma to those around her. Cool, calculating, calm and stoic with quick reflexes Shigura gives the air of dark and mysteriousness. She hardly speaks but when she does, it is always in monotone rich and feminine but monotone none the less. One wonders just what she is thinking. She is quiet and frail she has a dark frightening power about her deep down. She is a good person at the sort of semi-heroine level. She is serious and an outcast but yet she will help someone out to her best extent. She has been blaming and punishing herself for not saving the one she loved but she has been able to work through her issues. She can be somewhat rude and sarcastic to those around her so most leave her be. She has unusually refined ethical standards which add even more to this very mysterious woman. When around the one she loces and trusts she becomes more freer with her feelings and with herself joking, laughing things you wouldn't think she'd do.
History: Born 2.30 to two traders Alannia and Shingi who wanted a child badly Shigura was an only child. She spent most of her youth wandering with her parents learning how to trade until her mother died to save someone's life just whose she never knew. She never had friends at all most avoided her which she never minded. While visiting a cot hold Shigura fell in love with a man Lucrecio a healer. She stayed taking up guard work to be near him. Little did she know that Lucrecio was the person her mother saved he felt guilty so he rejected Shigura to be with his assistant named Haja whom he got pregnant. Shigura was sad but she wanted him to be happy and he gave her a flit egg which hatched into brown Chaos. Shortly after that, Lucrecio died tragically and Shigura began blaming herself because she felt she could have saved him it was during to volcano that he had died he was killed in the avalanche she felt that if she had just gotten there in time she could have rescued him. That forever changed her into what she is now. So she left the hold and began travelling with Chaos trying to escape the haunting memories. She stopped one day at West Bay hold where much to her muted surprise she was searched and taken to Arolos. She met a fellow canidate Felysca and quickly established a kind of friendship well sort of and she also met Canesiay which she felt an intrest for him. But then hatching came and she heard these words in a demanding voice ((You! My Shigura! Give me attention!)) Shigura found a green, Ayeshath, running up to her as Impression took place and plowed her over, crooning and rubbing depserately for attention. After feeding her demanding dragon in the wallow next to her she found to her surprise Felysca had impressed as well and to a green Thoreyrth but Canesiay did not she wonders if she and him will still be friends or not but after recieving a leter from him she was reassured that they would and underneath it all she might be developing feelings for him. Already after a few days Ayeshath began "helping" Shigura meet people. She got a new haircut and during the getting her uniform her dragon got her into toruble by threatening the master in charge of making the uniforms.

Information about Shigura's pets
Pet Name: Chaos
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: This brown is a very big brown he is the size of a small bronze. He is powerfully built even when he first hatched, despite this power he has much grace to him and is very quick in the air. His color is the darkest brown, so deep and so dark from tip to tail. But wait could that be a lighter brown playing on the surface of his hide. One will rub their eyes and shake their head in confusion, as that light seems to disappear was there really a lighter brown hidden on his hide or was it just a trick of light? Only his pet knows the true answer.
Personality: Just like his pet, Chaos excludes the air of mystery. Most will find it impossible to fathom the flit's true personality. He is quiet, contemplative and protective. He seems uncontrollable and dangerous but his pet knows how to handle him. No one will be able to touch him but her. To her he is a comfort and companion forever loyal.He is also never leaves Shigura's side unless asked by Shigura herself but even then he'd be ready to return the instant he could. Another strange thing is he just doesn't act like a flit he isn't friendly, bosterous, or energentic like most would think of when they think of flits but then again flits have different personalities like dragons but still this flit is incredibly different from others.
Second Pet Name: Harmony
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: When Harmony emerges from within the confines of her shell she actually reminds you of the shell. she is a very warm and soft looking shade of green. Hard to say exactly what shade of green it is but it's definitly warm and soft. With a bit of warm sunny looking green color to compliment that main color of her hide. She will actually grow to be a very big girl about the size of a small blue when fully grown. Other than that she'll be very well proportioned and very nicely compliment to Chaos. She now has a tattoo on her body identifying as belonging to Shigura, her mark is a black dragon wing and a white dragon wing facing opposite directions.
Personality: Harmony will be as soft and warm as her shell and hide indicate. She is made to curl up on someone's shoulder when they are stressed to bring them peace. She is the living example that even in the midst of the chaos of life there is harmony. She is an incredibly sweet little er big girl. She is so delightful she will be very surprising to everyone like the direct opposite of Chaos. She indeed reflects the harmony of life perfectly suiting her given name.
Information about Shigura's dragon
Dragon Name: Ayeshath (eye-ee-sh-uh-th/Ayesha)
Age: 2 turns (5
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Ayeshath is beautiful, mesmerizing and regal. She has different shades of green throughout her body. From very dark green under her wings to light lime greens, leaf greens, it seems almost like all the shades of green have been somehow incorporated into her hide. She has some light green spots that stick out like on her shoulder along her legs but yet it all blends together perfectly. Very mesmerizing the way the lights play on the various colors. She is slender in her build and seems to be average in size. A band of not quite as dark as the darkish green on the tail sticks out.All in all just like her egg:
Personality: She has an attitude from Hatching that she is the centre of the universe and everyone is there to serve her pleasure but though she retains that attitude she has began to realize she needs to earn the right to be so and thus wants to be the best. She will regard pretty much all other dragons with a few exceptions as virtual slaves in comparison to her and will be very annoyed when that doesn't turn out to be the case- ( For annoyed, read 'spectacular tantrums and plots of revenge'!) She will however adore her lifemate with an all consuming rather jealous passion and will expect them to be of a similar mind.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: her wonderful memory will be a fine asset to any wing
