Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Es'kay is only beginning to show his age, with the grey beginning to appear in his jet black mane of hair and wrinkles starting to frame those green eyes of his. Though the signs are coming in, Es'kay is still a very intimidating man at 5'10" and with a very fit and toned frame. He refuses to let age get him down. He has the traditionally dark and rough-looking skin of an Igen dragonrider.
Personality: He's just as protective over his brother N'kka as Dzorrth is over Munaith. The relationship, to anyone ignorant to their being brothers, looks as though they were weyrmates. Es'kay constantly consoles and comforts his brother these days, as N'kka has been horribly deformed and scarred for ilfe by Thread. He is willing to risk any consequence or danger for his brother and could easily kill anyone who tries to harm N'kka.
History: Es'kay was born as Eselkay in Igen Weyr to the drudge Anailee, healthy and full of life. His brother Nikkau was born two Turns earlier. However, Anailee never found out who it was that impregnated her either time and so both boys grew up without the knowledge of their biological father(s). They grew up proceeding down different paths in their life; while Eselkay tried to flirt and hang around girls as much as he could since he hit puberty, Nikkau was always much more feminine than his brother and kept himself busy with girls as well but in a different way. Despite the difference in personalities, the two brothers were always on good terms with one another and they supported each other right into Candidacy. Then, unexpectedly, both brothers had Impressed dragons from the same clutch; Eselkay had found his fudge-brown Dzorrth and become Es'kay, and Nikkau had found his sea-green Munaith and become N'kka. For the first few months of Weyrlinghood, they were separated as their dragonets were untrusting of one another. But after graduation, the brothers became close again.
Information about Es'kay's dragon
Dragon Name: Dzorrth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Dzorrth is a very dark, fudge-brown colour even at his age, so much that it just makes you want to reach out and lick him. Just to make sure he's really chocolate. In the darkness, he looks positively scary. He is a bulky brown with more width than length but don't let such a fat appearance get to fooling you. He was born with abnormally strong wings, most likely to compensate for the fact that he weighs most than other browns.
Personality: Dzorrth cares for Munaith above all else, though it is not a romantic relationship. Still, that doesn't stop him from almost biting your head off should you choose to pick with his injured clutchsister. If you stay away from pushing those buttons, you'll find Dzorrth is a very quiet and self-kept dragon, much unlike his rider Es'kay.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
