Name Pronounced: Vae len
Appearance: Although tall for his age, 6', Va'lyn looks like a shorter and deflated version of his oldest full brother Sl'sh. He too has long blond hair, but his tends toward the redish shades. Va’lyn’s eye color is also different, where his brother's are gray, his are a warm brown. Being a Turnager, his body is still developing, he doesn't really have any muscles so to speak of, and looks very much like a pretty girl rather than a male, 'cept that his body is definitely male albeit skinny. He likes to wear tight clothes and boots. AND jewelry, he loves bracelets, and will hunt down the gaudy things in Gathers.
Personality: Va'lyn isn't shy, although he doesn't talk much unless he's been drinking, then he can get downright silly or even obnoxious. Like his brother he too likes to gamble, although in his case he learned after he Impressed, thereby depriving his father from reprimanding him for his vice. Va'lyn likes to sing and can actually hold a note. However, he is not a harper and had never wanted to be one. He can also play stringed instruments, but again, nothing worth Betweening home about. He likes both females and males equally, him being a turnager and a greenrider.
History: Va’lyn was born to a blue riding mother and a bronze riding father who are weyrmated and live in High Reaches Weyr. He has two brothers who ride brown and bronze and a sister who rides blue. He also has numerous half sibs from both parents as a result of flights. His father is a dragonhealer and his mother is a healer. He, like his sibs, lived in the crèche but spent a lot of time with their parents when they weren't on duty.
