Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: As thin and limber as a plank of wood, when you look at Airani, you tend to think, "When did this girl eat last?" She's oddly small and thin, her frame very-fragile looking and her arms and legs carrying barely any muscle. However, don't let that fool you. Airani has a serious lack of physical prowess, but in place of that she has a very strong, bold character, and a voice to rival a Harper. Her dusty brown hair was cut short just after her Impression, and she has kept it that way since. Her face is a collection of slightly imperfect features: her nose is thin and sticks out a bit too much, and on top of that it leans off to the left a little bit, which is probably a product of her quick birth. Her almond-shaped, dark blue eyes seem to be spread out a bit too much, and her thin lips are a paling pink that leaves much to be desired.
Personality: Airani has no physical prowess whatsoever, so she is virtually useless at any kind of serious physical labour. However, she does hold quite a powerful voice and her leadership skills make her a valuable asset on an occasion or two. She can command virtually anyone's attention with a call of her voice. However, she does have manners! She's not about to yell at the Weyrleader while he's busy, nor does she ever make an attempt to stand out and proclaim some bout of egocentric nonsense. She's just...Airani.
History: The child of two drudges, Airani never expected much of herself, and neither did her parents. Born in Telgar Weyr, she grew up around dragons and quickly grew accustomed to being around them at all times. As a Weyrbrat she got quite mischievious in her younger years: pulling pranks and stealing bubblies from the kitchen, very cliche Weyrbrat acts. Into her adolescence, she turned face and straightened up...perhaps for the better. She became a diligent worker, studying every chance that she got and taking chanes at higher positions very seriously. At thirteen Turns she was given the opportunity to Stand for Impression - but it ended in empty-handed failure.
Information about Airani's dragon
Dragon Name: Saikath
Age: 24 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Saikath has been roughed up quite a bit in the past, and it shows. Her hunter green hide is marked with several, albeit tiny scars, and her wing has a fracture scar from where her wing had broken. Still, despite the odds, Saikath still perseveres and knows that her wing will heal enough for her to fly regularly again. She is still a carefree green with a lot on her mind, and a lack of control against voicing what's on her mind. Her frame is small and thin, comprised of little muscle.
Personality: Saikath refuses to believe that her injuries can get her down. In her mind, she's still as capable a flying green as she was when she first flew, and it's up to Airani to make sure that she doesn't pull anything stupid. She's just as strong-willed as her rider, though, and the two have been known to butt heads until one side gives up. Usually, it's Airani that gives way.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
