Name Pronounced: Tear-rahl
Appearance: With his thick dark hair and piercing blue eyes, Tyrral could have a face that women would appreciate - if only he’d consent to smile every once in awhile. But sadly for them, a solemn, considering frown is the most frequent occupant of that face. Tyrral himself couldn’t care less how he looked. He always kept himself scrupulously clean, of course - to do otherwise would be shocking dereliction of his duties as a healer - but anything beyond the basic toiletries he couldn’t be bothered with. It is not uncommon to see him with disheveled hair, rumpled clothing, and dark circles under his eyes from staying up all night studying.
Personality: Tyrral is first and foremost a workaholic. When he’s not infirmary with his patients or in the classroom with his instructors, then he’s in the archives with a scroll or in the storage rooms with a mortar and pestle. Just as well - Tyrral wouldn’t know what to do with himself if he didn’t have work to do.
History: Born: 22.214.171.124
Information about Tyr'l's pets
Pet Name: Lacrimosa
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: Lacrimosa’s hide is a deep forest green, even all around except for two small light green patches one below each eye. She is large for a green - lengthwise anyways - but slender to the point of appearing scrawny, despite possessing a normal flit’s penchant for stuffing herself silly at every opportunity.
Personality: From the moment of her birth, Lacrimosa has never said a word - not a peep, not a chirp, not even a soft little croon. Silent she was born and silent she remained. Tyrral never figured out if it was a physiological issue or a psychological one, but Lacrimosa seemed perfectly sound otherwise and so he let it go. And it wasn’t as if she couldn’t make herself understood if she wished, using a combination of mental imagery and physical gestures.
Second Pet Name: Klemik
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: For All to See egg:
Personality: Hatched starving, even more so than most flits it seems, Klemik never seems to be full. Maybe it's because he doesn't eat a lot, or that whenever another animal or person joins him for a meal, he'll make sure they get their fill before he takes his. It doesn't matter how hungry he is, and most of the times he'll be extremely hungry, he'll wait patiently until everyone else is done. He isn't one of those flits who will go begging for food or try to steal it off someone's plate. It’s not just with food that he acts like this, with nearly everything in his life, Klemik will be willing to give it up if someone else comes along and wants it. The only thing he won't give up is the affection of a green he is flirting with. He doesn't flirt often, but if he is and another male flit comes along he will do everything in his power to drive the interloper away.
Information about Tyr'l's dragon
Dragon Name: Leviath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Leviath is a tiny blue with a mottled, almost purplish hide, there are probably greens who will grow to be larger than him. Small does not equal weak for this dragon however, his long lithe form is well muscled and while he's quick and graceful on the ground, a rarity in dragons, he is a wonder in the skies. His long narrow wings will see him reach speeds unseen in many of his green peers and anyone who rides him will be thankful for the straps because he can turn on a wingtip. Despite being small, he has a decent amount of endurance for a blue and will able to fly as long as the average blue. And probably twice as far due to his speed.
Personality: He is a friendly little fellow who never has a bad thing to say about anyone, even if he does tend to be a little nervous and tentative about reaching out to others, even his friends. He likes to be with his friends, but he doesn't want to impose, oh no even if he'll be ever so thankful for the invitation! And what if his rider needed him? If his rider is indoors, more often than not you'll see a little blue form sitting by the closest doorway. Patient and uncomplaining no matter how long it takes.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Leviath will prove himself a strong flier with the agility to surpass that of many a green. Once graduated, he will be a true asset to the wing that has him.
