Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: C'lin is about 5’8” and weighs 160 lbs. He has short brown hair and green eyes. These eyes are about the most interesting thing about him, except the fact that he is an educated 9th-Pass young man who can barely write. He has a small nose, small ears, and a large mouth. He is an accomplished tenor due to his harper training (even after adolescence), and his light hands are well-suited to making and playing instruments.
Personality: C’lin loves music, so he constantly goes around singing or humming a jaunty tune. When sitting, he will unconsciously drum his fingers against a surface in a known or invented rhythm. C’lin has been described as “a human flirelizard” because of his epic curiosity and friendliness. Oddly enough, he has never wanted a flit, but enjoys playing with them. He loves children, but, being homosexual, never wants to have them himself. His most secret dream is to adopt a child one day. Asked about this, he will quickly try to change the subject, since it is not something he believes he should discuss with just anyone. He desperately wants love and enjoys a good mating flight, but wants a partner that his Rogth wouldn't mind flying over and over again. His ideal is a man who will love him and respect his privacy, and maybe even share in his dream. For now, though, Rogth is going to be as close of a friend as C'lin can have.
History: Corlin was born in a small hold that looks to Nabol Hold. He had average parents who had him educated by the local harper as per tradition. The only problem in his education was that he took far longer thannormal to learn how to write. The hold harper tried hard to teach him and Corlin tried hard to learn, and in the end, it worked out. When he was twelve, Corlin showed interest in being a harper himself, but, before he could do anything about it, he was Searched. Despite growing up during a Pass, he never considered himself as a dragonrider. However, he was taken to the incredibly cold High Reaches Weyr, where he Impressed his blue Rogth at his third standing. Not liking cold that much, C’lin was only too glad when his name was drawn to go to Arolos Weyr, where it was all tropical.
Information about C'lin's pets
Pet Name: Vicious
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Vicious is a large blue but not as large as a brown. He looks pretty average in his cobalt blue hide. On his stomach how ever is a electric blue shape of a shield.
Personality: Vicious has a air about him that says he is a fighter. He usually has a bad temper except when he is with his pet.
Information about C'lin's dragon
Dragon Name: Rogth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Rogth is almost an electric blue. He is not a metallic, but he could be if he were two sizes bigger. He is large, though, as big as a small brown, but can be clumsy at times. He has what look like fang marks on his rump, but are actually just lighter patches of blue hide that just so happen to look like a bite. His wings are slightly larger than normal, but that hasn’t hurt him yet… except that one time at his hatching where he tripped over it. Thankfully for him C'lin was there to help and Impress.
Personality: As stated, Rogth is clumsy. Often, he will roll off his weyr and squish C’lin accidentally, waking up only when C'lin yells at him. He is social, but will talk to a human only after his rider tells him he can. Like his rider, Rogth LOVES flits and will chatter with the best of them. During Threadfall, Rogth is very fast and almost a polar opposite of his normal self. He becomes fast and sure, almost never getting scored or allowing Thread to touch his rider.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: Rogth is clumsy to a fault, unless he's fighting Thread. He loves to talk to people, which makes him forget anyone else. It can be hard to get his attention at times due to this. When he's on the ball, however, he is fast, smart, and strong.
