Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Tsoryca always has a look of self-possession, even if she's in half a mind to blow her stack. She has chin-length, dirty-blonde hair that she wears behind her ears to keep it out of the way. She prefers clothing that is easy to manuever in, though she enjoys looking nice. She's rather normal- tall and lanky, moderately tanned skin- but for her eyes. One eye is a deep chocolate brown so dark it seems endless. The other is a bright emerald green that reflects sunlight like a prism.
Personality: Tsoryca is generally a self-possessed person, meaning she knows herself well and expects at least that much from the people around her. She is not easily angered but will fly off the handle if pushed to her limits. She may come off as odd when first met, but soon it becomes apparent that it was only her twisted sense of humor and perception. She is a natural-born leader but balks at the fact when it is brought in the open, wondering exactly when that happened. She isn't the most coordinated person, matter-of-fact, she's quite clumsy and more likely than not she will fall at least once a day. Despite her accident-prone nature, she makes friends to keep, and doesn't hold grudges...very long.
History: Tsoryca is the eldest of three children, a relatively small amount of children from her family. Her mother is often sickly since her father died when Tsoryca was 14. The eldest of her siblings, Tsoryca was appointed leader of the family when her mother fell ill the next year and she ended up supporting her sisters. Tsoryca was originally apprenticed to a harper when her mother got sick, and was forced to discontinue her apprenticeship to provide for her family by assuming the role of a kitchen drudge. She learned she has relatively paltry cooking skills over the past 2 years and doesn't enjoy the kitchens. Though she hasn't the time now to continue, she still retains her love of music.
Information about Tsoryca's pets
Pet Name: York
Pet Type: Fire Lizard
Appearance: York is a male brown with a slightly crooked tail due to a tragic door accident. He has a very peculiar patterning of hide, and is often found sunbathing on the roof when not being an all-around busy-body.
Personality: York is very energetic, always on the go, and super hyperactive. He cares for Tsoryca fiercely and, unless warned back, he will attack any that bother her without question. Tsoryca always keeps a close eye on her defiant little flit, and over the years he's slowly learned that he cannot attack everyone he sees. Though quick to fight, he is also very loving and enjoys children.
Information about Tsoryca's dragon
Dragon Name: Jehanneth
Age: 18 Months
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: A pale and gentle colour covers the hide of this green dragon. She is almost the colour of the new buds on trees in the spring. Her soft eyes are full of watchfulness, following the movement of those around her with a look of interest. This is a beautiful green dragonet that will grow into a prime figure of a dragon.
Personality: A quiet green in many ways, Jehanneth is unlikely to approach strangers. She is not worried about making too many friends either and will gladly practice her lessons rather than playing with other Weyrlings. To her rider she will have a sweet nature, always pleased to talk if her rider wishes it or to do anything asked of her but she is unlikely to talk to anyone other than her rider unless they approach her. Her lack of desire to play with the others of her clutch and her quietness is likely to cause her to be laughed at, but this does not worry or affect her.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
