Name Pronounced: Zah-sai-ya
Appearance: Standing at 6’3”, Zasaiya towers above most other women and a goodly number of men as well. Her figure is lanky, with only the barest hint of womanly curves. She is stronger than her slenderness would suggest. Her form is packed with lean, wiry muscles, the product of a decade of active living. Riotous brownish red curls frame a long, serious face which features a pair of lively hazel eyes, a thin, imperious nose, wide, though well-defined lips, and high arching cheekbones. Hers is by no mean a beautiful face, but for those who could appreciate such things, it holds an appealing strength.
Personality: Zasaiya is a woman of no pretension. She always speaks her mind, regardless of whether anyone else actually wants to hear it, and will always act according to her personal sense of right or wrong. She will never willing tell a lie, not out of some moral obligation, but simply because she doesn’t see any sense in dressing the truth up as something that it’s not or vice versa.
History: Zasaiya was the byproduct of a gold flight encounter between a lower cavern woman and an unknown dragonrider at Benden Weyr. She never knew her father and saw precious little of her mother, but she never felt the loss. She was content growing up along side the other children in the Weyr Creche, under the watchful eyes of the creche mothers. They were more her family than her own flesh and blood.
Information about Zasaiya's pets
Pet Name: Quagmire
Pet Type: Green Wher
Appearance: No Liquid Center Here Egg
Personality: When it comes to a personality this girl couldn’t be much more green if you tried. She is as flighty and unthinking as a wild green flit. Those muscles of hers aren’t just for show as far as she is concerned if “If at first you don’t succeed, put more muscle behind it” and it will take work from her human to get more.
Information about Zasaiya's dragon
Dragon Name: Beringath
Wing (Weyrling Group): WeyrlingMasters
Appearance: Beringath is a large blue, of a size almost on par with small browns. Not only that, he is also disportionately lanky, with a large wingspan and longer than average limbs. These features gives him an edge in the air, but makes him unusually clumsy when on the ground. His hide is a deep blue, even throughout except for a lighter patch on his left shoulder.
Personality: Beringath is a serious and hardworking blue, not given to frivolities. He has what may be described as a singularly direct mind. When given instructions, he will follow them to the exact letter. When told to fly from point A to point B, he’ll do so in a perfectly straight line. He’ll perform drills with uttermost precision. However, he struggles when faced with anything more abstract. Any lies you tell him will be taken at face value. Sarcasm and allegory will go completely over his head. He will struggle with any decision that’s not completely clear cut.
Weyr of Origin: Benden
Abilites and weaknesses: In the normal course of things, Beringath is an incredibly reliable flier and flamer. He will execute maneuvers and drills with perfect precision and his larger size gives him more stamina than the average blue. However, don’t ever put him into a position where he has to improvise because that’s when he’ll freeze up and become completely helpless.
