Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Short. Tarek is rather short for a guy his age. He is 5 feet tall. He is not thin, and not muscular, he is average. His only distinguishing feature is his eyes. They are always bright and happy with a mischevious twinkle. They are an odd combination of green and gray. They are green in varying shades when he is happy and a gray when he is upset or very tired. He can also run, exceedingly well, a result of his small build and lightness. Also, it wouldn't appear so, but he is extremely agile. Years of dodging bucking or rampant runners can do that. He had blond hair that he keeps rather short. He has an air about him that makes him appear to be innocent and cute.
Personality: And the exact opposite is true. He is a mischevious little devil, who goes out of his way to make trouble or pull a prank. His pranks never do harm though. He makes sure of that. He appears to have a smile permanently plastered on his face. His eyes always appear to be hiding his next trick. He makes the best friends with the girls he meets. He has been openly bisexual since he was 14. He does not push his opinions on anyone. He is like all the other lads, he just prefers them as well, on occasion. And he is fierce in his loyalty to his friends. Even if he doesn't do much good, he always sticks up for his friends and would fight (and lose) to keep his own honor and that of his friends.
History: He is the son of a master beastcrafter and his mother was a journeywoman until she married and stayed at home. Needless to say, he took to beastcrafting very easily and was apprenticed early, at the age of eleven. He has a great love for runners and has even won a few races on his runners, he is an excellent rider! Tarek was content to live his life as a crafter and perhaps marry, something his folks pressured him to do when he was older. This presented a conflict, when at age 14, shortly before being Searched, he told his parents that he was also interested in boys, sometimes more so. He hasn't spoken to his father since. His mother accepted it though, she said there was always something different about him.

Appearance: Moe is an almost mottled blue flit. He is very light and has a large pale blue spot on his back. He is also a very small blue. He is just a bit larger than most greens.

That is legendary in Tarek's small hold.
