Character type: Candidate
Appearance: Tradsin is 5' 10", with black hair and deep penetrating black eyes. His clean shaven face shows the knowledge and philosphy that is beyond his years. He has a light build, with long and agile legs. He has a dark skin, with moles in his right hand, the most prominent of which (and the biggest) is in the backhand.
Personality: Tradsin is friendly lad, with a ready smile for his friends, but when surrounded by strangers, he usually keeps to himself. He loves to explore, and the thrill of the unknown inspires him. He has a gift with history, and loves to read whenever he can. He likes to sing,and is in fact a great lover of music, but he was not given the voice, nor the musical acumen.
History: Tradsin was born in a minor hold that looks to the Telgar Lord Holder. His father, Abram, is a master miner. He has one brother, Adran, who is now following his father's footsteps. His mother, Engeline is a healer, and was born in Telgar Hold.As a boy,Tradsin became close with old the harper of his hold, Sranti. Journeyman Sranti, although suffering with joint ail, always had time to teach the children, especially young Tradsin. Unfortunately, Tradsin had no talent for music, and it was obvious he can't be a harper. But still Sranti taught him everything he knew, from dragonlore to the important points of Pernese history. Tradsin had also no liking for mining. He was quite unhappy when Sranti told him he can't be a harper. He had no choice but to follow his family's line of work. But oneday, when dragons from Arolos came, he was Searched, and his father gave him his blessing. Now he was off to become, if he was lucky enough and found worthy, what every children in Pern dreamed of, to become a dragonrider!!
