Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Seeing double? You might be. This girl and her twin sister, Elenli, are identical, ever their poor father couldn’t tell them apart. She has short dark hair, it was once long, but it was cut as a Weyrling and she hasn’t had the chance to grow it back out yet. The color is really dark brown and, when in the sun, looks as though it is made up of many different colored hairs. She has dark green eyes, the type that seem to stand out even when her chin length hair falls in their way. She is a good looking girl with a small frame and is skinny. She stands about 5'5"ish or less, she only seems tall because of the way she carries her self, proud and confident. She probably weighs just around 120 lbs. This young girl is also strong, out of the pair (her and her twin) she is got the muscle.
Personality: She is well....everything she “wasn’t supposed to have been born to be”. She is strong willed, self confident, adventurous, a risk taker, daring...NOT good things for a Holder’s eldest daughter. She was supposed to be “more like her twin”, someone to marry a future Holder and become a Lady Holder. She liked racing runners when she was supposed to be learning etiquette. She was, still is, a handful. She is energetic, overbearing, rebellious, and stubborn. She’s also got a knack for convincing her sister to join her in whatever crazy scheme she’s got her mind on. She is, at heart, a kid, a tomboy. She thinks that she is just as good as any boy which made her an odd fit at Fort where she Impressed. While there she learned to be quiet and to blend in with shadows. She learned to become invisible (no, not literally). She develpoed a mood in which she could go throught the motions of things without thinking of them and then just forget, push it into a deep corner of her mind so as to avoid thought on whatever that was.
History: She was the firstborn to a Northern Holder. Her and her twin were raised by only their father, their mother died in their childbirth (she was young). Their father didn’t remarry so they were his only children. She was supposed to marry a Holder’s son and become a Lady Holder, but she was not the right...type. Her father loved both his daughters dearly for they reminded him of their mother so he spoiled them and ignored their flaws. She knew she was a disappointment, but her father still loved her and her sister would make a fine Lady Holder, so she never worried.
Information about Shmi (Sh'mi)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Asheth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Her hide is a dark, deep green. It almost matches Shmi's eyes except that is it not as bright, unless she is going to rise, that is. She is not large, nor is she small. No, she is somewhere in between.
Personality: She is as stubborn as her rider and, just as her rider, thinks she is just as good as any other dragon. She is. She insists on calling Shmi Sh'mi. Why can't her rider be honored too.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: She is fast and good at flying, even at her young age. She sometimes doesn't think an idea through and can be over confident, but that has helped her too. She has guts and her not knowing that she can't do something sometimes helps her actually do it. She is also a show off, this is probably a weakness.
