Name Pronounced: Zim-me-an
Appearance: Zhaimian stands at 5'11" and is a fairly slender young man. He has a round face with high set cheek bones, and his dark blue eyes have a slight slant to them. His shaggy black hair has a slight curl to it, and falls to his shoulders. Zhaimian has a lightly tanned complexion, partially hereditary, and partially from working outside all the time.
Personality: Zhaimian is a rather kind, good-natured fellow. He firmly believes in good manners and hard work, and doesn't shirk on either thing. Zhaimian always tries to do the right thing, even if others around him don't always approve of his actions.
History: Zhaimian is one of several children born to a pair of farmers in a small cothold near Arolos Hold. Like any young boy, he often got into mischief, and annoyed his sisters, but he never got into any serious trouble. As he got older, he took up his place working on the farm, where he showed a great love of working with and taking care of the crops that his family grew.
Information about Zh'mian's pets

Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Muut is a dark mud brown color with lightly streaks of brown on the undersides of his wings. He's an average sized brown flit with a solid build.

Information about Zh'mian's dragon
Dragon Name: Vnaath (vnawth)
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: What colors are bright? Not browns. That honor was reserved for blues and greens, even some bronzes and golds. Someone mustn't have explained these facts to Vnaath. His hide's not the dark or dull shades associated with browns; instead a brilliant copper-brown gleams so bright on him that he's a shade short of being shiny. He claims he'd make a better bronze, but, from hatching onward, his size is medium, nowhere near what'd rival the smaller bronzes. That's a small problem, one he won't even consider were it pointed out to him. The vast sea of muscles apparent on him are spread evenly, letting him stay airborne as though he was larger.
Personality: Vnaath won't let people lump him in among other browns, nor does he consider himself a bronze. If only there some position between bronze and gold he knows he'd be there. But alas! He must make do with what there is, but he aims higher, beyond what browns should be capable of. He wants to fly, he wants to rule the air as much as the golds do during their flights. When freshly hatched he'll have little luck testing his wings but he'll keep at it, should anyone give him some leeway he'd take the chance at getting into the air.
