History: Canlyna was a weyr brat raised in a creche at Telgar weyr. Kids would pick on her because of the way she acted to being picked on. She would get mad to the point where she was screaming at the kids. They thought that her reaction was funny and kept doing it. Because of being picked on alot, she built a guard in her mind to protect herself. She used this guard she had set up by pretending not to hear the other kids when they teased her. She never really learned how to properly interact with others because of this, making it hard for her to make friend. She never knew who her parents were except thar one was a green rider and the other blue. When she was 12 she was searched and became a candidate. On her second hatching, when she was 13, she impressed a green dragon. The dragon immediantly broke through her guard to find the sweet and talkitive person underneath. Soon, it was learned that the pair was good as a watchrider because of fine senses. The first time that she tried to fly thread, her dragon's beleif of always being correct hurt her dragon and killed another rider pair in the wing. Canlyna and her dragon soon listened a little better when fighting thread. Canlyna soon lost alittle bit of her guardedness after first flight. She had a daughter, at the age of 16, (from that flight with a bronzerider named K'orlyn) that she named Harlina. She also was given a firelizard egg at this time by K'orlyn to try and keep her interest in him, it didn't work. She had her second child, Kyril, at the age of 18 to the brownrider R'pylin. She left both these children at the creche when she decided that she wanted to move to Arolos weyr.
