Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Tarhrean's eyes are almost the same color as her dragon's skin. They are a slate blue. They are normal sized but when she gets extremely excited they widen immensely. Her hair is cut short and even. It's extremely plain. It is a dark dark brown color, almost black. It is always tangled but she doesn't usually mind.
Personality: Tarhrean seems as unemotional and easygoing as her lifemate. She really is easygoing and thus appears more unemotional than she is. In reality she bubbles with emotion, but does not show it. This does not mean she is dull. She can get as excited as a green's rider on occasion, but does not do it frequently. She loves having conversations with people, especially about other people. She likes to sit back and observe, then discuss it later. She does not gossip, but occasionally her spoken observations will unintentionally lead to gossip. She enjoys questioning everything in her own mind, but does not usually seek the answer. She accepts that she'll get answers as she can.
History: Tarhrean was born in Thonet Hold. Her mother was closely connected to the Dolphin Hall as a former senior apprentice. Her father was a fisherman who descended from a long line of fishermen. Because of both her parent's backgrounds, her life was full of the sea. She never tired of it, loving to go out with her father on his ships and collect fish. Her parents never had a son, and as the eldest daughter, she was to take on the fishing business. However, when Tarhrean turned 7, things changed.
Information about Tarhrean's pets
Pet Name: Kari
Pet Type: Dolphin
Appearance: She is very grey in color. Kari is a rather large dolphin but not extremely so. She has many scars from small battles and suckers but they have all healed nicely.
Personality: Kari is very bright and fun loving. She enjoys playing and chasing fish, but also enjoys talking to Tarhrean. She feels things deeply and one of the things she feels most is happiness. Her main problems are suckers and other physical injuries. She does not concider herself Tarhrean's pet, and is not really. Instead, Kari always wished a human friend and Tarhrean has become that. (For more on how they met, see Tarhrean's history)
Second Pet Name: Sunny
Pet Type: Blue Wher
Appearance: Sunny is a sprightly blue. He's streamlined and light on his feet. It almost appears that he has a spring in his step. His hide is the same blue as a cheerful Spring sky. Sunny has wide eyes that take everything in.
Personality: Sunny is, well, sunny. From the moment he first laid eyes on Tarhrean, he knew that he had to impress her so she'd take him home. He rushed to her and began babbling away. He'll do this to anyone, human, flit, dragon, or other wher.
Information about Tarhrean's dragon
Dragon Name: Nikutath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Nikutath's strangest feature is the color of his hide. It is a slate color more than blue. He is not sickly, that was just the color he was born with. He is a medium sized blue. His skin is marked with the occasional threadscar but nothing serious. He's always been able to pop between before it became serious.
Personality: Nikutath is rather unemotional as most blue's seem to be. In his case though, he really is unemotional, except when it comes to his lifemate. He is easygoing but tends to be rather talkative. Nikutath enjoys conversing with anyone who will hear him.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Nikutath is a rather brilliant blue. He can hold rather long conversations with his lifemate. He does not fly extremely fast but this is made up for with his stamina. The energy that could be put toward speed is instead put toward stamina. He can last longer than most other blue's he's flown with. He is not over agile nor under agile but just normal.
