Character type: Dragonrider
Personality: Shy to a fault, Zydak finds it hard to talk to anyone whether it be male or female. He's a hardworker and will do everything asked of him, no matter what it is. He's definitely a follower, not a leader and will buckle at the least little argument. Unfortunately, he becomes depressed quite easily and he'll mope on his cot for at least a candlemark before bouncing back.
History: Not everyone from River Mouth Hold is as smart as a certain RedStar. His mother, Zylise went to work in the kitchens after her mate Daklin died in a fishing accident, raising their three children on their own. Zydak is the youngest. His brother, Dakise is a fisherman like their father and his sister Liselin is a seamstress for the Hold. Only his mother was pleased with his being Searched because it would get him out of her hair!
Information about Z'ak (Dead)'s pets
Pet Name: Akhil
Pet Type: Bronze flit
Appearance: Smaller than the average Callamere, this bronze is thin and streamlined, his wings and tail are long so he is faster and more agile than his fellow bronzes. His coloring is a deep burnished bronze, almost more of a rust color than the shiny, pretty bronzes some could be.
Personality: His name meaning "whole" in Sanskrit, he is everything that Z'ak and Filoth are not. Flirtatious, bold, daring, bossy ... Akhil is not at all shy, knowing what he wants and going after it. And he'll work out ways to get what is best for his Pets. Akhil loves to play and will often be seen zooming between Z'ak's good leg and his crutch, finding it immensely amusing to do it while he's walking.
Information about Z'ak (Dead)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Filoth
Wing (Weyrling Group): WeyrlingMasters
Appearance: Hatched: 18.104.22.168
Personality: All Filoth wants is a quiet gentle life, with his lifemate, having a bit of fun, doing his duty well and just aiming for contentment rather than glory. A simple enough aspiration you would have thought, but Filoth seems to be one of those beings that strange and bizarre situations happen to. Things that shouldn't, couldn't, wouldn't happen test the mettle of this fine brown, forcing him to defend and fight when he would much rather retreat because it is *right* to do so.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Although unable to fly, Filoth is very good at calming young dragons, empathizing with their hurts and instructing them to pay attention to lessons so they wouldn't end up like him.
