Name Pronounced: (tuh`HALL)
Appearance: He is almost a perfect carbon copy of his father T'kai. Through the combination of remarkable genetics and the rigorous life of dragonriding, T'hal has filled out very nicely. He has nice broad shoulders that taper down into a slim waist and his musculature has been toned well by his active lifestyle. His skin is a dark bronze similar to Indian/Middle Eastern peoples.
Personality: T'hal shrugs off most situations with a remarkable amount of carelessness, sometimes to his disadvantage. In his mind there is only one thing worth truly worrying about and that is Thread. He has taken in most of Iaranth's naive and playful nature, which only adds on to his personable attitude and makes him a very friendly and likeable fellow.
History: Tohalokai was born to Haloya, a drudge working in Fort Hold, after a fling she had with a handsome bronzerider one Midsummer Gather. His childhood was an average and happy one; he grew up among other Fort Hold brats. Early on he developed a skill for being the leader of his little ragtag group of pals. It convinced Haloya that it was something of a necessity for her young son to meet his fath. When she felt it was the right time she introduced Tohalokai to T'kai, then-Weyrsecond of Fort Weyr and rider of bronze Zaelth.
Father: T'kai (38), bronze Zaelth - Fort Weyr
Mother: Haloya (30), drudge - Fort Hold
Siblings: Halnor (17), half-brother

Information about T'hal's dragon
Dragon Name: Iaranth
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: Like a draconic reflection of his rider, Iaranth was given a lanky, tiny frame to begin with but as time passed and he grew, he filled into that frame very nicely. His entire body is nice and long at twenty nine feet, and his wingspan is a whopping forty-three feet long. His hide is a colorful reflection of his bright, childish personality: the center of his body is a large circle of a light, powder blue and as it fans out across his sleek, muscular body it lightens to a beautiful, darker baby blue. His face holds some small shades of a periwinkle colour. In girth he looks like a giant blue stuffie that was made nice and extra soft for a child to cuddle. He is stocky for a blue and Iaranth is lucky to be so large - he just looks so cuddly soft and fun to hug, and there is nothing that Iaranth loves more than cuddling!
Personality: A bit naive and innocent at heart, this hyperactive little dragon's mind is all about fun and games! He can easily turn any stressful situation into something optimistic and exciting. His rider is in for a lifetime of happiness and giggles for Iaranth never lets himself nor his rider be depressed for long. With a childish mindset he will believe that everything is a game, so he will try to play along as best he can while trying to understand the "rules." He despise conflict but will give his best effort to resolve any issues that come up in his presence, believing at heart that everyone has the potential to be best of best friends.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Though he looks plush and cuddleable, Iaranth's stocky body prevents him from being as fast or nimble as other smaller blues. He can pace himself well in the sky and fly with impressive stamina for his color and he is a little stronger than he looks.
