Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Tarin is a small, slender boy with dark blond/light brown hair and blue-gray eyes. He is delicate in appearance, almost girlish, but this is beginning to change as he matures. He is currently 5'4'' in height and growing rapidly in the beginnings of his adolescent growth spurt. His skin is fair and burns easily. His body possesses a wiry grace, and it is already apparent that he will run to lean muscle rather than a body-building physique as he matures, and his hair already shows signs of darkening into brown.
Personality: Tarin is quiet and rather shy with new people, but when he gets to know them he reveals himself to be a cheerful and friendly boy with a generous nature. He is willing to help his friends out in any way he can, which occasionally leads him to be manipulated into doing other people's chores, but he takes this sort of thing good-naturedly. He likes to play outdoor games and sports, and is not above putting in some good-natured teasing. At this point in his life he is definitely a follower rather than a leader, but if the group is doing something he really disapproves of, like torturing an animal or child, he will detach himself from the group, although he probably will not tell on his friends. Tarin is always quiet and well-behaved at his lessons, working hard on finishing his work, though he will not volunteer an answer unless pressed. He is a clever boy and bores easily. In his spare time he likes to work on making things, like mending leather or fixing agenothree flamethrowers. He seems to have an affinity for machines as he has fixed flamethrowers and other simple machines with only basic guidance.
History: Tarin has five older brothers and one younger sister. His family lives on a smallhold in Lemos, where they help farm and tend to animals.
Information about T'ran's pets
Pet Name: Mini-Al
Pet Type: Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: Mini-Al is about the normal size for a flit his age, and will likely be of normal size once he fully matures. His shiny hide has an odd reddish tint to it, redder than the coppery hue of some other bronzes, tmaking the flit look almost dark
Personality: Mini-Al will go through his life having a hero, someone he desperately wants to please and emulate: Albath. Ever since the little bronze saw the big brown dragon, it's been love at first sight and Mini-Al would do anything to be like the dragon. He knows he's a flit, not a full grown dragon, but Mini-Al tells everyone he sees that he's really just a very very small dragon, and he's just as strong as one of them, a strong fighter like his 'hero,' and will worm his way into dragon-only activities to try to prove that. While Mini-Al is fond of his Pet, T'ran, every minute that he is able he will be curled up on Albath's back, or riding on his headknobs. Thank Faranth the brown seems to be tolerant of him.
