Name Pronounced: t?n-yń
Appearance: Tenya looks like a woman who has made it her goal in life to have fun-- and does a pretty good job at it, too! She faces the world with a bright, wide, toothy grin, her gray eyes wrinkled above rosy, pudgy cheeks. When her round face is animated, Tenya appears much more attractive than she might otherwise be.
Personality: Tenya's base personality is vivacious, with a sometimes infectious zest for life. But the girl is not without her sour moods!
History: Tenya was born into the Wenyan Caravan of Traders, the sixth and final of her siblings. Her father, Deryan, was not the leader of the camp, but a distant cousin to Wenyan himself. He was content to sell his hoard of wine at Gathers, while his relatives made the more important decisions. Her mother, Tuella, was the caravan's main cook.
Information about Tenya's dragon
Dragon Name: Poth
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: This hatchling is a darkish mottled blue. In some lights the mottling can look almost unkempt, a bit like unruly fur on a feline. He is reasonably short in length for a blue, but still has the width of an average blue dragon. This can make him look quite portly, as though he has spent too much time eating herd beasts and not enough time flying. Indeed, this is a dragon who likes his food (and the sweeter, the better), and his rider will have to be careful to make sure that he does not over indulge and make himself ill.
Personality: This blue is very loving and easy going. He is happy to please and help others, although his attempts are not often successful. He is going to find being a Weyrling hard work. The lessons will take a while to go in as he can be a slow learner and will make many mistakes on his way to success. He will probably have many accidents and incidents that mean he spends quite a bit of time with the healers being checked over, but he will rarely do himself any real damage.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Poth is certainly not the most elegant of dragons to look at and this is equally the case when he is in the air. He does not have the speed or manoeuvrability to chase and catch many greens even if he were to try. He does have good stamina for a blue though which does mean he is a dependable fighter when it comes to flying thread.
