Name Pronounced: Wy-lan
Appearance: I wouldn't call W'ylan drop dead gorgeous, he's more ruggedly handsome, maybe not even that.But he does have his appeal to both sexes. The young rider stands 6'2. He has broad, very broad shoudlers. He has a buff body, muscles everywhere and a six pack stomach that most would die for. He will use his strength to get what he wants.His language can be terrible, he's very foul mouthed, swears constantly. His hair is jet black and he wears it shoulder length, pulling it back into a runner tail most of the time, he does have some bangs. He's always got a five o'clock shadow on his jawline. He thinks it makes him more enticing and older looking. But frankly it just makes him look mean and cruel. His eyes are like a cobras, there mid-night blue and glitter when he's got his prey in his sites.His nose his long and straight and he has a square strong jawline. He does have a few scars across his chest and back from fights that he had been involved in before he impressed. He's a fighter or at least he tries to be but his dragon usually stops him.
Personality: Well like I hinted to in the previous paragraph. W'ylan isn't the easiest guy to get along with and does love a good fight. Although his dragon usual has him well in hand and doesn't let him fight but there are those rare instances when things happen. He's very foul mouthed and loves things rough. The rougher the better,especially sex. A rough flight has him on high for days afterwards. He has yet to find anyone that can stand being with him more then once out of flightlust because he is so physical. Maybe he'll find someone to tollerate him sometime be it male or female or maybe even both.
History: W'ylan was born Whaylan. His mother was a pillowcrafter and who knows who is father was. How did a pillowcrafter's son become a Dragonrider of Pern you ask? Well even if you didn't ask, I'm gonna tell you anyway. It was purely by chance and good luck. But before he impressed he worked at several Inns, he most worked behind the bar and helped to keep everyone peacable. Although he had been known to start a fight or two even though he was suppose to be braking them up. He was at a hatching that was being held at Igen when he was 18 turns old. Standing near the entrance to the hatching sands, he watched as dragnet and candidate paired off and left the hatching sands. It came down for the last egg to hatch and a large dark blue dragnet came out of the shell. He went from one candidate to the next looking for his lifemate. But he didn't want any of the candidates he saw before him it wasn't until he saw Whaylan and cried out to him, the large blue dragnet ran for the youngman and the impression was made.

Appearance: Tyberoth was a large blue at birth and continues to be on the large side of the scale as blues go. Even though he is a larger then adverage blue, he doesn't look out of preportion. He is very dark in color and has no lighter colored areas. Which is unusual, but it's the way he is.
Personality: Tyberoth's personality isn't quite like his rider but he isn't a softy either.He tries to keep his rider in line but isn't always successful. He isn't a cruel blue , but he does stand by his lifemate in most situations. The only thing he doesn't approve of is his lifemates thrill for being so rough and cruel at times.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: His weakness is his size, he manuevers like a brown when in fall or in any flights. He doesn't have much staying power in either case.
