Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: When stood together, it's obvious Torien and Meliana are brother and sister - his hair is the same golden-blonde as hers, though a little bit shorter, and less curly... he has the same slightly narrow face as hers, and the same slightly upturned nose. They're both slender and wiry... but there, the similarities end.
Personality: Torien is immature for his age. Slightly arrogant and a bit boastful, Torien tends to push away those few people who might consider him a friend. He's the sort of person who refuses to ask for directions, never once asks for help, and would sooner lose his foot to a tunnelsnake than admit he's in pain. Having grown up part of a large family made him stubborn and adventurous, and he's always willing to try something new... and his little 'adventures' tend to get him into trouble.
History: One of Meliana's many older siblings, Torien grew up the son of a Holder. Unlike his sister, he didn't care if he was noticed - the typical brat, he went everywhere and did everything. There wasn't anything he didn't want to do... and at one point, he somehow managed to weasel a flit egg out of someone, resulting in a beautiful - if spoiled - blue flit. This flit grew to be just as arrogant and headstrong as Torien.
Information about T'rien's pets
Pet Name: Kite
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Kite is a beautiful, sapphire color from head to toe, his large wings slightly darker than the rest of him. Due to the spoilings he's recieved, his coat shines. His wings are slightly larger than normal, which is probably where his name came from.
Personality: Kite is arrogant and childish. He's always doing his best to be slightly irritating - stealing pencils, hiding things... if it's a prank, he's probably right there, chittering away. He's possessive of Torien, and anytime the boy has gotten into an argument, Kite has been right there, voicing Torien's anger in his own energetic way.
Second Pet Name: Trapp
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: Trapp is still a puppy - a gift to Torien before he left home - but she's probably going to be a rather large dog, according to her paws. She has a soft, amber coat and her slightly narrowed snout has touches of black to it. There's a black spot on the middle of her long tail, and her big eyes have almost cheetah-like markings around them.
Personality: Quite the opposite of her master, Trapp is shy. She avoids people at all costs, and if backed into a corner, is liable to bark. Loudly. Loud noises send her running under any nearby object - but she's feircely loyal, and if called, refuses to leave Torien's side until he tells her to. She's incredibly intelligent, for a dog, and if one of the friends of her master doesn't meet her 'approval', she's growl, snarl, and avoid said friend until they get the picture and leave her alone.
