Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: F'len has fair skin, and his hair is an often- sleek dark brown. His eyes are a cool slate-gray color. His features are thin and angular, giving him a bit of a bony look. On top of that, he is a bit tall, and seems to retained some of his gangly look of youth.
Personality: F'len is one of those people who do their best to avoid the spotlight. Or any sort of attention, really. Impressing a green, only made life harder for the naturally shy young man. He loves Mrralth deeply, but as the rider of a "lesser" color, he can't help but wonder if things would have been better if he rode a different color. His nervous nature makes hm prone to a vivid imagination, but at the same time can get him carried away. At first, he was overjoyed to Impress a dragon, but as reality set in, F'len more often than not found himself turning away, effectively becoming more and more introverted. At this point, he only cares about protecting himself and Mrralth, by whatever means necessary. Most of the time, he prefers to stay incognito, and he's more of the simmer silently until it explodes, sort.
History: Farlen was Weyrbred to High Reaches Weyr and was raised in the creche. His father was a brownrider, his mother an unknown They left him in the creche, and he never saw them. Even as a child, he wasn't one of the louder children, and as such, may not have gotten much attention, though the argument could be made for vice versa. He preferred to be by himself, anyways. The one moment that could have been said to define his life was when he realized that he wasn't attracted to women. In an attempt to appear "normal", he began to try and romance women anyways. After all, his mother may not have been a rider, but he knew his father rode brown...However, when he finally decided to stand, the Turn he became 17, green Mrralth made a beeline for him, effectively ending *that* idea. Besides, Mrralth being flown by dragons with mostly male riders made it slightly easier for him to relax, just a bit...
Information about F'len's pets
Pet Name: Chirp
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Chirp is small for a brown flit, more the size of a larger blue. However, his wings are large and strong, and his small body is lithe and muscular- probably from years of narrow escapes. His hide is the rich color of chocolate, with slightly amber undertones.
Personality: There are smart firelizards, and there are dumb firelizards. And then there is Chirp. How this brown survived to maturity is hard to pictuer. He will poke his snout into anything and everything, and will not take any correction without a good deal of fuss.
Information about F'len's dragon
Dragon Name: Mrralth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Mrralth is a beautiful light green, the color of new spring leaves, with a slightly darker head and back. She is large for a green, with an unusually large wingspan. As a result, she can hold her own in thread-fighting for longer than most other greens. Her wings are even lighter than the rest of her, more of a white-green, in fact.
Personality: Mrralth is of average intelligence for a green, and prone to random bouts of flightiness. She is also intensely vain, and will insist on staying as clean as she can. She will flirt with all the males, and will be happiest when she is being admired by more than one male. She can't understand why Hers isn't happiest in a crowd. After all, she is.
