Name Pronounced: Tah-SHAY
Appearance: Despite now being a grown woman, her appearance really hasn't changed that much from when she began her Candidacy. She has shoulder-length, raven-black hair that she alternates between a ponytail and other different fashions; she never really keeps it the same style for long. Her normally fair skin tends to blister, burn, peel and finally tan if she spends too much time outdoors, and her eyes are a dark jade, flecked with olive. Her figure is very slim, with no real curves to speak of.
Personality: Never one to make her mind up, Tashae has always went with the flow of things and taken life as it's been handed to her. She's a bit obsessive-compulsive and tends to repeat important things, most often doing so when she's being rushed or in a hurry for one reason or another.
History: Born in Arolos Hold, Tashae had always had high expectations in life. Though her parents tried to bring her down to reality, she always had her head up in the clouds, floating from dream to dream. First, it was that she wanted to marry a wealthy Lord Holder and have a bountiful family, as Holdborn women usually do. Then it was she wanted to be a famous Harper and somebody become the first female Masterharper of Pern and then she was on to Impressing a gold dragon and becoming Weyrwoman of Arolos Weyr. The girl was never solid on one goal during her childhood.
Information about Tashae's dragon
Dragon Name: Gufath
Age: 7 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: As far as his hide, Gufath has a muted middling shade of blue. Nothing spectacular, nothing really notable, though it darkens a little on his underside. His wingspan is average, weight and size average. Everything about Gufath is average as long as he remains without temptation.
Personality: Gufath is a very permissive, almost meek blue when it comes to decision making -- any other dragon or his rider can hammer him into a bad decision, and he'll go along agreeably. He'll even trumpet it once he gets comfortable in it.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: His lack of drive keeps him from really doing anything extraordinary - or really, anything ordinary. He will never really take initiative on anything at all.
