Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Tinalla looks kind of Asian, with slightly slanted eyes and long black hair. She usually has it pulled back, and wears clothes suitable to the kind of work she does as a trader. She can sometimes look a little ragged, but doesn't really care. She's always been thin because she splits her rations with her dog. She's not dainty exactly, but not particularly muscley in any way.
Personality: A tomboy, Tinalla can sometimes be a little stuffy, but she likes to have fun in whatever she's doing. Tinalla misses her friends, and wants more than anything to make some at Arolos. She's not always serious, and will break rules if she feels it's necessary. She only knows the basics in reading and writing, but is extremely proud of her meager skills. She's really proud about everything actually, and will fight someone if they insult her or her family. She's just quick to act. Having grown up with her two brothers, she's a pretty good fighter too. She really wants to fit in at Arolos though, and won't do anything unless she's seriously provoked.
History: Tinalla's mother died at her birth, and so she was raised by her father and two older brothers. She lived in a trader van, learning all the points of haggling and sometimes stealing when necessary. She was friendly with everyone in the trader van and often made friends with people they met too. Her dog was given to her as a pup when she turned nine Turns old, and she trained her herself. They've been inseperable since they met, and Tinalla depends on her quite a bit. Each of her brothers had a dog too, but they weren't as close, nor were they well-trained.

Personality: Seya is strictly a one-person dog. She's extremely well trained, but won't listen to anyone but Tinalla. She likes to play with flits and to swim, but her favorite thing is hunting. She is really protective of Tinalla and is easily angered if she's threatened.
Second Pet Name: Cat

Information about Tinalla's dragon
Dragon Name: Abbeth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Abbeth is a bright, pure green. Her hide doesn't have any blemishes or different shades on it. Just a springy bright green. She often has her head cocked to the side, trying to look cute to get what she wants.
Personality: She's playful, and not overly-flirty. At least for a green. She wants Tinalla to teach her to dance, and constantly is wiggling around, trying to imitate the movements of people dancing. She loves music as well. She gets carried away easily, and will probably end up injuring herself because of it. She can be quite deaf when told to calm down or stop.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: From her 'dancing', she has exceptional coordination, speed, all-around grace in the air. Her endurance can be affected by it though.
