Name Pronounced: V ren (vai ren)
Appearance: Vairen is well as typical as any boy can be. He stands about 5’7 and weighs something like 140 pounds in total. He isn’t quite all muscle, but he isn’t an overweight thing either, you can tell he does have plenty of muscle but it doesn’t have the definition that someone who works out more has though candidacy may very well fix that. His eyes are a hazel in colour the brown flecked green actually matching his hair oddly enough due to the brown being the same shade as the brown of his shoulder length hair. His skin is on the darker side, what would be a darker mulatto on terra in truth though if he spends more time outside it can get darker not overly so, but some.
Personality: He would never have been called shy, in fact he’ll be the first to say hi to any new person he meets simply because he loves to meet new people. It does make him a bit intimidating to some, but poor Vairen hasn’t realized it and it has caused him to run off more then one potential friend. It probably doesn’t help that his attention are usually turned on those who look like they are trying to ‘hide’ either. Beneath that friendly nature though is a boy looking to make up for the acceptance he could never get from his father. He needs to have friends to fight off the loneliness that had been present since Vaion rejected him.
History: Vairen was born one turn before the start of the eighth pass nineteen days into the second month. He had a relatively normal life in the cothold he was born in that is until it became clear that he wasn’t nearly as interested in learning to care for the hold as his father thought he should be. In fact when his younger sister Reon was born he was more content to look after her then he was to pay attention to what his father was trying to tell him. Then Vare came and his younger brother too was far more interesting then the crops and ovine his father wanted him to help with.
Information about V'ren (Vairen)'s pets
Pet Name: Liquid Land
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Egg - Molten Tracks Egg: A black core eclipses the center of this egg, whatever might be behind it and surrounded in molten orange and yellow. The fiery colors glimmer with a heat like the surface if made from molten metals no human should dare touch barehanded. However it seems like something has touched the egg. Along one side a trail of webbed feet have left seeming imprints in the fires although the egg itself has no indentations on the smooth surface.
Personality: He's a creature who enjoys the finer things but there's a darker side, enjoying conflict. It entertains him how situations play out. Sure he protects his 'pet' from anything, anyone else though is fair game for pranks or observing what strife may come their way. He won't get involved himself nor does he ever regret leaving others to their own device, a least not that anyone can tell. This brown just goes on his merry way to the next item of interest.
Information about V'ren (Vairen)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Hwintth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Caged Egg - The Caged Egg is a fairly straight forward egg as eggs go. At first glance this egg might get everyone all excited because the base color is a yellow that could be argued to be gold. But of course the egg isn't big enough, the yellowish-goldish color not true gold, and the second part of the egg is a pattern that literally looks like the egg is enclosed entirely in a cage just slightly larger than the egg. The pattern is so convincing that the 'cage' almost seems to hover over the yellow color. Of course anyone close enough to touch would find that once again a clutch has produced an amazing illusion.
Personality: Hwintth is a charming dragonet, from his first moment out of the shell, taking a look up at the sky and enjoying a nice bright day in a good, solid Weyr.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: He's got a keen memory, keener than he ought to have, and he'll serve his rider as a useful tool in threadfall, falling and catching onto patterns. He can last his time in fall, plus a little extra is needed, but he doesn't have the best control over his flame. He can of course direct it properly, but even after this long he hasn't quite managed to become as effect as he thinks he should or could be.
