Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: At first glance, she appears to be a quite pretty girl about four years younger than she really is. The first thing that gives this illusion is her shortness, barely reaching five feet on her tiptoes. Her build is around that of straight from her ribcage to her hips, with only a small dip to show where her waist is. People have a tendency to mistake her for a very short boy, especially with her tendency to wear baggy tunics and pants. Her limbs are built on the slim side, with long, dexterious fingers on her hands, small feet, and a thin neck.
Personality: One word to describe her would be oblivious. She's outgoing, and friendly (though she has a quick temper,)and tries to make friends with everyone. A sad result of this is a general tendency to butt into the middle of conversations, and get everyone royally peeved off at her.
History: She was born in Arolos hold, the daughter of a bronze rider and a drudge, but she wasn't raised by her birth parents. The rider was from ista, so couldn't exactly stay to raise the child, and the drudge just disappeared somewhere. She was raised by a woman called Arin, though raising involved feeding, clothing, and disciplining her, leaving her to run wild through the hold with the other holdbrats, causing all manner of mayhem and mischief. How fun.
Information about Zeeda's pets
Pet Name: Mercury
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: He is small, even for a blue flit, being more along the size of a medium-sized green than a normal blue firelizard. Most of his soft hide is a dark, midnight blue, fading several shades on his underbelly, with a pattering on the wings getting lighter blue the farther from the wingbones the sail is. His most distinctive marking is a streak of pale, silvery blue that curls around his right eye and a few centimeters down his neck.
Personality: He's quite the ladies man. At least with green flits. If he sees one, he'll drop everything he's doing (except maybe getting oiled... or fed...) and go try to woo her. All this usually results in is him getting snubbed, then going for the next green he sees.
Information about Zeeda's dragon
Dragon Name: Betulath
Age: 18 Months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Betulath is a bit on the fickle side, something evident even in her hide. At first glance she seems pretty uniform in color, being of a dark, almost hunter green with only a few flecks of a slightly lighter hue. Upon closer inspection, however, her hide will prove to be an array of different greens packed close together to create the darker, more uniform tone. The effect is quite dizzying if watched too closely.
Personality: Betulath herself is even more dizzying. She tends to be quite flighty, even for a green. One minute she's the bounciest dragon in the Weyr, the next she'll sulk in the corner and demand to be left alone. Still, she has her lovable traits. So long as she's not sulking she's affectionate and outgoing, making even the most shy and reclusive person warm-up to her inmost cases. And anytime, she loves to get Zeeda wet. Shells, getting anything wet is fun.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Her personality that seems to conflict with itsself can be a bit bizarre and annoying. One minute she'll be in a corner, and it'll take many promises of liberal scrubbing from Zeeda to get her to move, other times she'll be so bouncy and curious she'll get herself into bad situations. Unfortunatly, there doesn't seem to be a middle ground with her personality either, and Zee's going to have to find a way to deal with it.
