Name Pronounced: bee-ELLS
Appearance: Bee'elze is very tall at 6ft5”. He has a medium frame and large build, though he isn't overweight and is very muscular instead. His height hides all of this however.
Personality: Being a Rider suits Bee'elze in more ways than one. It's changed him from a weedy boy into a strong and confident man, and he can look very intimidating at times, especially when he's fighting Thread, when he'll shout at the sky and tell it to 'bring it on.' But that's only Arridth's eagerness running through him. Back on the ground he's surprisingly sweet, and has a kind heart.
History: : Beefreelze was never much good at anything. Every parent likes to show off about how their child is progressing, how they are progressing faster than average, even if it's only by a few days. But Beefreelze was never like that. He wasn't behind other kids his age, nor was he ahead, but simply average. So average in fact that most people forgot he was there. If you ask the Harper at Telgar Weyr, who taught Beefreelze for nine turns, he'll swear he never knew him.
Information about Bee'elze's dragon
Dragon Name: Arridth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: What an interesting rock. Do you think that was man-made, or just a strange, natural phenomena? Did...did that rock just move? No, of course not, don't be...wait a minute, it did move! By Faranth it's doing it again! Run!!!
Personality: Arridth is unusually fun-loving for a Brown. He believes in 'down time' and the importance of having fun to blow off steam. He'll often spend his time around Greens, happily joining in their games, but will also encourage other Dragons, especially Bronzes to join in, feeling that a healthy Weyr is a happy Weyr.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: He has great compatibility with all other Dragons. Where some won't be able to socialize with any but their own colour, Arridth is very versatile. But the fact that he's so generalised means that he has never been a specialist in anything, and sometimes Arridth can spread himself to thinly.
