Name Pronounced: Uh-Tren
Appearance: The young weyrling has short mousy brown hair. If he lets his hair grow too long, he gets curls. He'd rather not have the curls since it would only give the weyrbred boys another reason to tease and torment him. His big brown eyes stand out against his pale skin which only makes him seem even more helpless. He's tried hard to stand up for himself, but the only thing he's gotten for his troubles are more bruises.
Personality: A'tren wasn't a very loud person to begin with, but his short time at the weyr has reinforced that part of his personality. He'd much rather sit in a corner and be unnoticed than add to his collection of bruises. He's not a stupid boy, but his short time in candidacy left him lacking in knowledge. He's constantly coming up short in class.
History: Amatren was born in a hold near Fort Weyr. He was a quick little boy who didn't have much to worry about. He has three older brothers who were more than happy to beat up on anyone who was making fun of their little brother. After all, they were the only ones allowed to do that. When the bluerider came to the hold and Searched young Amatren with eggs already on the Sands, he was sent off with best wishes. The other candidates at the weyr didn't take long to show him just how different the weyr was from his little hold. Holdbred candidates weren't held in high esteem and some of the weyrbred candidates decided to show him this with their fists. He cried the first time they beat him which only got him branded as a green candidate. They were convinced he'd never Impress anything higher than a green. One month later at the Hatching, A'tren proved them all right when he Impressed curious little Peregrith.
Information about A'tren's dragon
Dragon Name: Peregrith
Age: 2 year
Wing (Weyrling Group): Weyrling Wing (Under 16)
Appearance: Peregrith turned out to be an odd looking little hatchling. Most of her body is a very pretty sumer green color, but the coloring on her head darkens until her cheeks and the very top of her head is a dark looking green. Her underbelly is an incredibly light shade of green. It's hard too imagine how a little dragon managed to be such an odd mix of greens. Her rider insists that she argued with herself so much about what shade she would bbe that she came out looking like this.
Personality: Peregrith is a very curious little creature. She's constantly asking questions. "Why is the sky blue? Why does water 'flow'? Why can't I have eggs?" If her rider doesn't have the right answers, she'll most likely wander around trying to find someone who does.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
