Information about Draken's pets
Pet Name: Noble
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: Noble has grown into a very strong and protective canine. He grew into his overly large paws and his pointy ears now stand straight up. Noble is a Shepard type with dark brown, tan and black fur. A saddle like marking on is back, his muzzle, top of his head and ears are black. Rings of black cross his chest and meet the black of his back. Deep browns and tans fill in between the black. As a pup, his fur patterns changed slightly as he grew but the coloring stayed mostly the same. After Noble was discovered casterated and bound to a table, he was never the same. A deep scar runs on his belly between his hind legs and it's unsure whether his fur will ever truely grow back in there fully. His forelegs are a lot stiffer in movement from being broken.
Personality: Noble's personality is solid. He is very affectionate to Draken and Blanth. He walks with his head held high and barks at any who come to his door. With training, Noble has learned to follow his rider leash less and be a protective companion. After his accident, the canine has become more of a homebody. His ventures out of the Weyr and into the woods have ended. He's slower and stiffer in his movements. Since his injuries are still so recent, Noble doesn't make much of an attempt to run or play. He's content to sit in Draken's weyr sleeping on the ledge next to Blanth. The protective spirit is still in his eyes but it's doubtful he'll ever be the same again.
Second Pet Name: Striker
Pet Type: Bronze Firelizard
Appearance: The solid bronze Callamere flit was a birthing day present to Draken from Kam'ran. Striker grew into quite the large flit with a slightly stocky appearance. His hide is a deep bronze with almost tarnished looking highlights. His tail has long been lengthier then expected but it fits with his large wings and body.
Personality: Striker grew into quite the over protective companion. If he isn’t with Draken he’s babysitting Teriken while he’s playing. The flit rarely left the baby’s side when he was younger and now that the little boy is grown he’s a constant companion in his adventures. The large bronze never grew out of his habit of copying the family canine, still growling at people though he’s come to accept A’cei as the permanent man in his owner’s life. Still quite bold he has been known to snap at the obnoxious and annoying. He’s a reliable messenger and quite the chaser when there’s a green or gold around.
Third Pet Name: Devlin
Pet Type: Brown Wher
Appearance: As a Callamere wher, Devlin was never mean to grow as large as his wild cousins but he's always been very large for his color. His hide is an almost black-brown with deep reddish highlights on his muzzle, legs and tail. He was very stocky and strong since hatching but finally gained a bit of height to in his last growth spurt.
Personality: Devlin from a very young age understood that his Drake is the most important person in his life. He tried to follow her everywhere as a hatchling and lets out a very mournful cry when told he has to stay put and away from wing drills. He now is content to guard the weyr and the greenrider’s son when needed.
Information about Draken's dragon
Dragon Name: Blanth
Age: 18 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Blanth has a deep emerald green hide that shines in the sun. Her eyes seem to be constantly swirling blue from happiness. She is bigger than most of the green dragons of her the Weyr yet Blanth is graceful and flexible. She is all muscle and definitely uses her size to intimidate who she views as threats to her rider. Her left foreleg bears the scars from her tornado injuries. Her left wing is spotted with lighter areas where the thread pierced through. Some of the injuries left thickened scar tissue but that has been loosened up with salves and extra training.
Personality: Blanth loves to be around people. She tends to be more outgoing then her rider. She is both easy to get along with and intimidating. Blanth's big size makes her quite an opponent for wrestling and playing with other dragons. Blanth is the dragon version of a tomboy and enjoys every minute of it. She's brave and the first of her group of weyrlings to learn to fly.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: Blanth's size and strength make her a bit more of a challenge in mating flights. She can out manuver many a male but even long after her threadfall injuries she still isn't quite 100% on stamina. Her mating flights are a little shorter then they used to be but not at all any easier. Her sense for Candidates is dead on, 9 times out of 10 and she's always seems to pick the favorites to impress. It is Blanth's concern for Draken's wellbeing can be distracting in dire times.
