Name Pronounced: Tra-Lynn
Appearance: Traylen has shoulder length Sandy blonde hair that outlines his face and sometimes hides his Bright Green eyes. His hair is rather messy and unkempt most of the time kept in a ponytail. He's 6' tall and weighs 160lbs. his body is build from having ridden in the wagons or on runners most of his life and now riding his dragon.
Personality: Traylen is very friendly making friends everywhere he goes. He's very protective of those he befriends also and if his trust were broken for any reason he is VERY slow to forgive. He’s been known to hold grudges for turns at a time. He hates rude people and lets his displeasure be known in the most polite way possible. He also refuses to be rude towards others, even those against whom he's holding a grudge. He doesn't like to cry and will go out of his way to hide such a fact. He takes on a distant and somewhat depressed attitude around spring and his birthing day, though he will attempt to be cheery for other's sakes. He's also known to be rather reckless and isn't too cut out for leadership for that reason. He can be somewhat of a coward when his recklessness has caused trouble.
History: Traylen was born on route to a hold near to spring. It was Late in the night and a bitter cold night. His mother died giving birth to him and his father and his Aunt raised him along side his cousin Emkengur. His father never blamed him for his mother’s death though when Traylen found out what had happened he took it to heart. Traylen met Shiest during his 15th turn when the caravan happened upon the lone traveling boy.
Information about Tr'len's pets
Pet Name: Lenore
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Lenore is just that a green flit. Her skin moves in beautiful shades from dark green at her head and face to a light green at the base of her tail. Her wing membranes match her body the Dark green starting closer to her body and moving to the lighter at the tips.
Personality: She is a wild little green with a mind of her own. She will however listen to Traylen in the presence of Shiest's Valfore. Any other time she is a right pain. She's very jealous of Jollieth and is outright ignoring Tr'len not even coming to visit him while Jollieth sleeps. Sh'es became very well behaved since she'd had to live with shiest and even considered herslef shiest's. however, when Tr'len was allowed to have her back she got worse and Jolliath encouraged her. from the first day she met Jolliath she loved her and hasn't thought differently since.
Information about Tr'len's dragon
Dragon Name: Jolliath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Averaged sized, Jolliath will be slightly on the thin side. Light green hide will dominate, relieved only by her hindlegs which funnily enough will be a dark,hunter green color. She will also suffer from the unfortunate affliction of thin skin. Like some runners bred for racing she will be more sensitive to things touching her than to most of her fellow dragons and her rider will have to have the utmost patience and care in washing and scrubbing her, and even more so when it time to harness her.
Personality: Jolliath thinks she's a flit. Well, not really. She just has a penchant for transporting messages and such. This will be cute while she's a young dragon and she can still move around inside the Barracks easily enough, but it will not be so cute when she is full grown and doesn't want to wait patiently for the recipient to come outside or to the ledge.She will also have the unfortunate annoying habit of getting confused easily curteousy of her green memory and will forget or lose any messages entrusted to her. This will improve slightly when she's older, but she'll never have the greatest memory. Jolliath will be one of those dragons without enough sense to get out of the rain. No matter the weather, whether the hottest day on record, a hurricaneblowing through, or a freak snow storm, Jolliath will want to be out in it and working or playing. Luckily for her lifemate, or not so luckily, she'll want him or her to be right out there with her, and if she can convince anyone else to ignore common sense she'll be all the happier. Other than that she'll be a rather average dragon, neither overly smart noroverly dimwitted, though her poor memory works against her. Nor is she overly loud or overly reserved, though she is quite friendly.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Tr'len gets motion sick while adragon back. He is also afraid of heights. Jolliath's skin never did thicken up and tr'len has to still be very careful when bathing her and puttign on her flight straps.
