Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Shorter, with a stocky build, C'din has wavy blond hair and gray eyes. His skin is fair, and though he appears a little "plump", he is in fact made of heavy muscle. He bears a slight scar on his back from where Tsath walked over him at Impression. His hair is dark brown and short cut.
Personality: At first glance, C'din appears cool and collected, frosty, even. However, like his dragon, C'din is possessive of what is *his*. He takes pride in having everything in his life neat and organized, and is one of the first to complain if something is "out of order". Truth be told, he doesn't really like the idea of Arolos, but he supposes, he can live with it.
History: C'din was weyrbred, born to an unknown brown rider, and his mother placed him immediately in Fostering. Cardin grew up among a pack of weyrbrats, and never thought for a minute that he wouldn't Impress. He had high hopes for a bronze or brown, but for the first two times he Stood- nothing. And then Tsath chose him. He was 14.
Information about C'din's dragon
Dragon Name: Tsath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Wind-dance Fury
Appearance: Tsath is large for a blue, with a paler hide and wings that appear a bit too big for him. From above, he appears a bit like a sailboat. And if dragons were ever plump, Tsath would be the first to take that title. His larger size, however, means that he can outlast other blues, and maybe even small browns.
Personality: Tsath is a hardworking blue, and he knows it. Therefore, he feels *entitled* to have whatever he wants, and often tries to convince C'din. He does not rise to chase greens very often, but when he does, he wants their full attention, even after the flight is over. He was disappointed when Nilanth and Hers transferred, and wants to go after them.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: Tsath is somewhat bulkier than other blues, and he has to work a little harder to build up speed, but on the same note, he is stronger and more enduring.
