Name Pronounced: Erin
Appearance: Eiryne has a high, wide forehead, wide face, and a small, pointed chin. Her eyes are grey green, with dark lashes. She's got a full mouth, and somewhat broad nose. A smattering of light freckles cross her high cheekbones. Her hair is a mid back auburn tangle of layers. Most often she has it caught back in a messy bun, giving her a disorganized look.
Personality: Eiryne is confident to the point of cockiness. She's at an age where she feels herself to be invincible. Because of this, she has no qualms about arguing with someone, or giving them her rightful opinion. Fortunately she's enough sense to realize when she's been shown up, and handles being made a fool of surprisingly well. When she's acknowledged someone as her superior, she won't hesitate to give deference to them.
History: Eiryne was born to a flightmoth who didn't notice the pregnancy quick enough to abort it. She was left to the creche at Telgar, though her mother did take a bit of an interest in her. After all, Eiryne had been a pretty child, with wavy red hair and huge green eyes. Because the two had started drifting apart when she was eight, Eiryne was rather surprised when, shortly after she turned ten, her mother informed her she was moving south to Arolos, and she wanted Eiryne to go with her. Because a new weyr meant adventure, she was glad to go. There she was presented with a weyr full of animals for her to fawn over, and she eventually apprenticed under a beastcrafter.
Information about Eiryne's pets
Pet Name: Callum
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Callum is a handsome brown, and a rather large one as well. He's a deep, matte brown in color.
Personality: From the way Callum carries himself, you'd think he was a full-sized dragon; and a bronze dragon at that. Because he pet spends most of her time working, he's taken to perching on her shoulder and imperiously chirping at the beasts she works with. That they don't listen to him at all obviously doesn't phase him. While he's not yet of age, Callum is surely the type who will try to fly a queen.
Second Pet Name: Eldon
Pet Type: Feline
Appearance: Eldon is a half grown, leggy mass of fluff. He's mostly orange across the back, with a white stomach and paws.
Personality: While some male cats prefer to show their aloof side, Eldon would rather toss dignity to the wind and curl up in one's lap for a good petting. He hates having his paws touched though, and will surely slap you if you try.
