Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Akira stands at 5'6" she is slender and willowy. Soft full blond curls (like her mothers) tumble down her sholders she usually puts it in a braid to keep it out of her face or cuts it and when she cuts it, it almost makes her look like a young boy. her face is angular and her cheekbones perfect, very high and broadly spaced but delicate. Her jawline is strong yet exquisetly feminine. Clear cobalt blue eyes (also like her mothers) fringed with thick ashen lashes. Her features are small, kittenish and make her look like a girl. somewhat pale skin she will burn easily in the sun and her only flaw besides her features is a thread score mark on her shoulder down to mid back. She prefers to dress in mens clothing because she finds them to be comfortable. The resembalence to her twin brother is very apparent. Her right arm is badly scored.
Personality: Akira is silent,often brusque when she deems it necessary to speak. Straightforward to a point if she is given a task she gives it her full attention. She is wise for her age though she seems sort of out of it sometimes. Very loyal and devoted to her friends she protects them with her life. She is one of those people that can keep calm and be mellow through any situation and she's definitly a woman of very few words. But on the other hand she is a very fierce dragonrider.She is sober, taciturn, and often sarcastic, she holds to a strong personal code of honor, despite some tragic disillusionments.
History: Akira was born in a cothold just off of Telgar weyr. She lived with her father, twin brother Albelezand and younger half sister Lyhnetta. Her mother died of an illness when she was young. Her childhood was uneventful up into she was twelve. She took an interest in beastcrafter and her brother in harping her father was outraged his son had to take over when he died and as for his daughter well she must be married. Although he disapproved of her choice let her persue her dreams hoping that maybe she'll attract a man while she worked and he let her brother persue his dream only until he felt it was time for his son to take control. But life changed when at seventeen both she and her brother were searched and taken to Telgar. Her father really disapproved. But he figure if they didn't impress then he'd marry her off. But to both of their surprise Akira impressed to green Risikath and her brother to a brown Azaseth to become A'lezand. Here is how her impression happened: she was standing near her twin brother watching people impressing when she thought she heard a soft purr like croon in her head suddenly a voice followed saying ((ah Akira i have hunted you down at last you are mine so come and feed me)) with that she found herself with her green Risikath. Well after weyrlinghood passed her father apologized with an egg, a flit egg which hatched into brown Armand. After a few years she got a bad threadscore which left a nasty scare and after seven years of fighting in Telgar Akira wanted a change of scenery so she put in a transfer to Arolos. She met a bronzer L'kait and felt somewhat attracted but during the goldflight she ended up with a browner L'cen. Things seem to settle down but soon Risi showed signs of porddiness as she flirted with a brown Anicath while Akira got to know the rider Br'chu. On 7.05.11 Akira picked up a flit egg to give her brown a companion hopefully. To her delight and surprise the egg hatched into a blue she callend Benji. Risikath rose not to long after that being chased by both Anicath and Hegemoth. And the winner was brown Anicath though Hegemoth put up a good flight as well. She remet L'cen and found out that her brother was going to transfer soon. The next big event was meeting I'teus and very big yet very devilish browner who made her pay attention could something be happening to the gruff greener? Her brother arrived much to her joy as the siblings were reunited. During the goldflight she found herself with I'teus, much sparks between them she seems to be really taken with him. On 18.104.22.168 she decided to get one more flit egg to add to her two and on 22.214.171.124 her egg hatched into a green she called Sybelle. She spent the gather with I'teus she is falling in love with him though is in denial. And of course the next goldflight was spent with him as well. During the threadfall nearly lost her right arm but was lucky and just got a bad scoring. She finally reveals to I'teus her feelings and he returns them finally she had found the perfect man for her. And she finds out she is pregnant. Finally she gives birth to her little girl she calles Irisika.
Information about Akira's pets
Pet Name: Armand
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Armand is a warm chocolatey brown with redish brown undertones. Near his eyes he is a darker brown and he also has some auburn/amber tones to his hide. He is fairly small for a brown but also pretty fast. He has a certain leaness to his form and a delicateness that seems almost unsuitable for a brown.
Personality: Armand is very loyal but also a loner. He is definitly a leader. He is sweet yet holds an innocence about him. He is always near Akira out of that loyalty he has a deep seated need for compaionship amongst other flits. Armand has a great love of paintings if he were a human he'd love to paint. Sort of detatched though in many ways. He is somewhat idealistic but yet kind of cynical.
Second Pet Name: Benji
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: With hide of a sea green, or maybe a better term would be sea blue as it is more blue then a normal sea green enough that it is clear he is a blue and not a green, he isn't exactly the most appealing boy ever. He is rather drab in truth with no real markings or fleckings to him, but every claw he holds to him is slightly longer then normal and defiantly sharp as can be, he makes sure of that.
Personality: This little boy seems to fancy himself a guard. If he catches you doing something wrong you will know about it. If he happens to find you being mean to someone you will hear about it. If he goes into thread fall with his pet he will probably be one to try and lead, not just other firelizards, but his pet and the big one too. He will find himself a ledge or two even that he can keep a watch out for
Third Pet Name: Sybelle
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: From the Ring of Fire came a medium-sized green who, despite her pudgy shape, seems more reminiscent of a statue. There are few occasions where this emerald green breaks her stillness. Her edges have a somewhat burnt coloration as though she suffered some
Personality: Sybelle won't make her presense known unless it's absolutely necessary, otherwise she perches like some stature on Akira's shoulder, or on Risikath...or among the rafters. It takes a fair amount to upset this green but once upset she seems to simply
Information about Akira's dragon
Dragon Name: Risikath (Risi)
Age: 11 turns 6
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Risikath is a lovely shamrock green with dark jade strips on her face and body down her legs but not on her tail. Her headknobs have that same jade color as well as a big blob on her tail. A spiral of the dark green wraps around her entire tail. Her underside of her muzzle is a light green and it spreads down past her chest to just past her back legs. She is very sinewy yet has power in her stride and grace in air. On the top of her muzzle she has a few dark strips and her eye rideges have them too.
Personality: Risikath is a loner she prefers solitude. She is very thoughtful and wise. She loves basking in the sun and will always eat just before flights and before she flies to be chased by males. She is quiet and yet she will do her duty and well for that matter. Nothing is more important than doing her duty. A cute male flying next to her in fall wont even register. She is very focused but yet she has a playful side to her. Very independent and for some strange reason you might seeing her rolling around in grass which is an odd sight to see for sure and when she is basking her tail will twitch on occasion. Somewhat teritorial she doesn't like other females in her territory.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: She is very powerful in flight quick like a terran tiger. Very focused but tends to miss the large picture because of that focus.
