Name Pronounced: Tin-su
Appearance: Tinsu has brown hair, short but not to short (it reaches his neck, but not his shoulders). He has deep brown eyes that show different colours of brown as you look at them closely: there's mud brown, amber and hazel. He's quite average looking, not very handsome, but not quite ugly either. The kind of person that blends in with the walls. How he acts, how he dresses, how he stands, all very average and not special at all. His face is soft and caring and his walk could be described as slightly femine. His clothes, however, don't catch attention, always matched to the tiniest of details. He loves to pay attention to how he dresses, even if it doesn't catch attention. He is more for the detail, though he loves making the more eyecatching clothes for others.
Personality: Tinsu feels guilty very quickly, he is an emotional guy, and it shows. He lets people walk all over him, then if he says something about it he is quickly convinced that the argument that follows is all his fault. Maybe even everything was his fault? Sometimes he is paranoid though, quickly thinking that people that are around him are there for a reason besides his companny. If he's either gullible or paranoid, it always gets him hurt some way or the other. Thats why he leans on his friend's decisions more then anything, if something goes wrong he can blame them. Not that he means it wrong, it's just in his nature. So is he all bad? Not at all, he has a very sensitive side, and is a good listener. Friends easily confide in him, he never tells anyone a secret he heard from one of his friends. Tinsu loves to help people, as it makes him feel good about himself. Tinsu is bisexual, though he leans more to the homosexual side.
History: Tinsu was a flightbaby at Telgar weyr, his mother, a bluerider, visited him at the creche from time to time but that was it. She loved her son, but she was always busy with rider duties, and with her lovers. Tinsu didn't mind, he got all the attention he needed from the creche mothers and was quite a happy child. When he was ten he started with Tailor crafting, enjoying it a lot. However his mother persuaded him to try to impress a dragon, she would like to see her son a rider. Maybe it was her guilt, maybe she thought that if he impressed he'd understand why she had been too busy to raise him. However, Tinsu gave in and used his birthright to stand. At that time he was 15 turns old. He stood a couple of times, untill he was nineteen, and to his own surprise he *really* wanted a dragon. In his craft time he kept Tailor crafting, his Master was really enthusiastic about his talent. He was one of his Master's favourite aprentices, maybe even thé favourite. It was on one of his free days that his life changed forever. His Master had bought a really expensive Callamere wher, a really small egg but still very expensive. It was on that free day the egg was hatching. Tinsu was with his Master when the first cracks started to appear. There was no meat, and his master decided to go get it. Ofcourse, this was a mistake as he should have sent the boy for the meat, but he didn't. When he got back he was just in time to see his favourite apprentice impress his wher. The boy had had some food on him, the green had found it and impressed to Tinsu. Ofcourse he was mad at first, but there was nothing that could be done about it. Tinsu, however, felt very guilty and, ashamed, he decided to leave. He told his Master he would save all his extra money and buy another wher egg and give it to him as a payback. His Master, not willing to let go of Tinsu, knew he couldn't talk the guilt out of the boy and instead and gave him a Journeyman status before he left. Tinsu was twenty at that time, a young age for someone who used to be a candidate to become a Journeyman, but his Master thought that way he had more chance of earning a decent living, and he also knew Tinsu had the skills. So Tinsu and his green wher left Telgar, and went to Arolos by dragon, wich was quite an adventure, since the wher was very young. But it worked out and now they're at Arolos, where Callamere whers are cheaper...
