Name Pronounced: T-sin-ga
Appearance: Tsinga has rather fair skin. It is not of a sickly pallor, just rather pale. Due to this is burns rather easily when exposed to the sun for to long. Her eyes are a very light shade of green. They seem to be brought out by the pale color of her skin. Long, black hair flows down her back. It goes roughly down to her waste where it falls unevenly due to a bad cut. Height wise she is about five foot four, rather average. Her built is strong and fit, as expected of a rider.
Personality: When living in a rather tight-knit community many people like to make the best of it and forge friendships. Tsinga does forge relationships, just not the kind you would expect. She takes joy in tricking people for her own amusement. When others attempt to approach her she take on a rather dark and disturbing persona. When talking with others she often includes death, destruction, and dark stories in her topic of conversation. This is a mix of two things. The first is a part of her true self, a love of the odder things. Second is on purpose, an attempt to scare others off. If people get close to her not only do they get a chance to hurt her but they might begin to expect things of her. They might expect her to be a good person, they might expect her to be kind and understanding. These are things that she fears she can't live up to, so she makes it so people would never expect her to be anything but rotten.
History: Tsinga was born to telgar hold to Tsivala and Rainga. She was an only child, with no older or younger siblings. However, this didn't necessarily mean that she got a lot of attention from her parents. They where rather busy around the hold, leaving her to find her own entertainment. It was not long before she began to find fun in trouble. As she got older she began to pull more and more pranks that got more and more complicated. However, she never fessed up to doing this because of her fear that it would affect her chances of getting searched. In order to not be found out she carefully covered her tracks.
Information about Tsinga's dragon
Dragon Name: Caileth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Caileth's base color is a rather deep shade of blue. Light blue splatters go across his back, varying in size. Swirls that are only slightly lighter than his base shade wrap around his legs. His size is rather small for a blue, only slightly larger than a green.
Personality: Caileth can rather easily be considered a worry wart. Whenever his rider goes to pull one of her pranks he attempts to stop her out of concern for her safety. He is a hopeless romantic that believes that everyone has a soul mate. Whenever a dragon flies he desires to chase her in the hope that she might be 'the one'.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: He is rather small in size and a little bit of a slower flyer but he has good stamina for a blue.
