Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Eyldral has straight, dark brown that is kept cut short, though it's a little on the long side now and has a tendency to hang in his eyes, causing him to frequently brush it to the side. He is of average height for his age and his skin is tanned from working on the family cothold from a young age. He has warm brown eyes, and he has a few freckles scattered across his cheekbones, though those are gradually fading.
Personality: He makes friends readily, but is rarely the most popular in a group. In any group, he's likely to be the one diffusing tensions and finding an amicable situation among his friends. He is no stranger to hard work, and will set to any assignments given with a good attitude. He has a strong sense of right and wrong, and most of the time tries to do the right thing, at least, the right thing as he sees it. He can be quite timid when encountering unfamiliar adults, and sometimes becomes upset and emotional when put in unexpected alarming situations. He lacks confidence in his own abilities, but becomes more confident when encouraged by someone he looks up to. Not one to break the rules often, he tends to jump to the worst case scenario and panic when caught. When he perceives that he has messed up in some way, he often becomes upset with himself. When he gets upset (for any reason) he tends to retreat to get some space and calm down so that he can sort things out. All in all, he's a good, hard working kid, and does the best he can.
History: Eyldral had a happy childhood growing up in a cothold beholden to Ista Hold. He has seven brothers and three sisters. The family was far from prosperous, and dry years often saw the family having barely enough to scrape by. As the third from the youngest with a rather quiet, unassuming demeanor, he often got overlooked in the hubbub of his large family, but he always had what he needed and was generally happy. He excelled in his lessons, and when the harper recommended he be sent to harper hall for further training, his family was happy to send him. He did well enough in his training, neither failing nor distinguishing himself as exceptional, until just one year into his training he was searched and brought to Arolos as a candidate by Elayne and Skith.
Information about E'dral's pets
Pet Name: Flurry
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: The lovely little green that emerges daintily from her shell will be a round little thing at first, with short wings and a shorter neck and tail. However, as she matures, her at first unremarkable size and shape will fill in to make this girl quite the beauty, her size and shape small, though perfectly proportioned. She will have her mother's jade- green coloring, with a darker smudge over both eyes, almost like a pair of goggles.
Personality: Flurry is a brave little thing, always darting and dashing off in search of a new adventure. She's a friendly flit, and won't have much fear of anything. Why, when it's so clear the world is her friend? She might be a bit tricky to train at first, due to her attention span, but that same energy may also make her an invaluable messenger- flit.
Information about E'dral's dragon
Dragon Name: Kilgiath
Age: 3 Months
Wing (Weyrling Group): Firedance
Appearance: Kilgiath is a robust but pint sized coppery hued bronze, strong and stocky from the very moment he hatched, even if he does fall into the smaller end of the bronze spectrum. Size doesn't matter after all, and he'll be eager to show that he can keep up to the bigger bronzes. No! His plan is to surpass the bigger bronzes one day, even if it means working his wings and his lifemates fingers to the bone.
Personality: He's a physical dragon, the type who knows that there's usually a way to creatively smash through all of life's problems, and that violence is quite often the solution. Especially against enemies that deserve it like bullies when he's younger and various natural disasters including thread, when he matures. He is going to be an awesome- if a bit alarming- threadfighter.
