Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Long. If one word describes him, it’s long. While he’s not really tall, per say, he’s very lean and thin. His gangly, adolescent arms and legs are, well, long and gangly! He’s growin’ here, give him a break. He’s got a boyish charm in his always-messy brown hair and sparkling green eyes. He’s got the makings of a real handsom young man, once he grows into himself a bit more, and looses the last bit of chubby, baby fat clinging to his face. He’s cute, no doubt about it, but more puppy-dog cute than girl-gushing cute.
Personality: Zerfon is all boy. Meaning, of course that he thinks girls have cooties—or used too, he’s starting to grow up—and that mud is his friend. He is starting to grow up though, and learn that, hello! there’s life out there besides him. Weyrbred, he grew up with the notion of “I’m gonna get a dragon” and was out on the sands as soon as he was old enough. However (thankfully?) he didn’t Impress, and it cooled his head a bit.
History: Weyr born and bred, Zerfon is one of the numerous children from a dragonrider, mother and father. He knows his parents, but he’s not close to them, being collectively raised by the lower caverns woman of Igen Weyr.
Information about Z'fon's pets
Pet Name: Bug
Pet Type: Firelizard, blue
Appearance: A fat, monochromatic blue. He's a solid sapphire from nose to tail tip, the only change in hue occuring in his tallons and thin wing sails. He's slightly pudgy from Zerfon's loving spoilings, but is still in good shape.
Personality: Noisy! Bug loves to talk, and talk he does--a lot! He'll chatter firelizard nonsense to anyone who crosses his path, expecting them to understand him fluently and becoming quite flustered when they don't respond in a way he wants them too. He's a horrible begger, too, having been spoiled almost rotten by the younger Zerfon.
