Name Pronounced: Ta-na-lay
Appearance: She is maybe a fraction of an inch or so over five feet tall without footwear. She's naturally slender and almost unusually petite, with the slightest of curves that mark her body as female. Her skin is the color of brown sugar. Her face is slightly heart shaped, which allows her hair to frame it, without covering her eyes,her nose is petite, like the rest of her. Her hair is black,closer to brown in some lights; it is shoulder-length, and is somewhat wavy towards the outside. Her brown eyes are round, and resemble deep shaded forest pools. Her eyebrows are neither too thin nor too thick, but are well defined and slender. Her body is very feminine, thin and slender, it has gentle curves and a small bosom, not yet volupteous as if she is still growing into it.
Personality: She is quiet, reflective, and idealistic. Interested in serving humanity, she has a well-developed value system and is extremely loyal. She is adaptable and laid-back unless a strongly-held value is threatened. Mentally quick, and able to see possibilities, She is interested in understanding and helping people. To those who do not know her, and to aquaitences, Tanalei is resevered, even shy. Those who have gained her friendship - which isn't very hard to do as she is rather friendly - know that she's a little more outgoing, and downright talkative. Not to say that she is a loner in anyway- infact it seems that she needs to cling to her close friends in most situations.
History: Birthday: Month 5 Day 9
Information about Tanalei's dragon
Dragon Name: Salviath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Her large frame makes her one of the largest greens in her clutch but she won't break any records for greens being the size of small blues, she falls just under that distinction and it's just as well. Her wings contain the only color variation other than that misty moss green covering her body, and that variation only shows up when her wings are unfurled. Furled, her wings meld neatly in shade to the rest of her body, unfurled a bright jade streaks across her large wings and is extremely beautiful.
Personality: On par with a gold, this mossy misty green will have the "NEED TO BE SEEN!" attitude not associated readily with those of her color. She'll think she's the epitome of what all greens should strive for, the perfection of a green and of course she'll want others to think that as well. Will they? Probably not all but there may be some willing to indulge her and most certainly her lifemate will.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: For all that Salviath is outgoing to a fault, she shows a lot of restraint in her class during lessons. She won't be pushy or brag she can do something better. Salviath is content to just let others see through her actions that she is better. Outside of class she won't hesitate to instigate a challenging game to her fellow dragons just to show off. Her restraint during lessons will shape her into a wonderful fighting dragon and by the time she's full grown and able to join a wing she'll be a top pick in placement. It's easy to overlook her gold-like attitude out of drills and falls when she's clearly very competent in the air. She'll be one of those dragons that will surprisingly make it far before she's ever scored by thread.
