Name Pronounced: ha koo (ha koo ni)
Appearance: Birthingday- 3 turns before the start of the 8th pass 4th day of the 1st month
Personality: H’ku is a hard one to figure out; indeed it would take many hour in his company to get a good grasp on his character. He’s gentle and kind-hearted, friendly, caring, and compassionate above all else…providing you have in no way come between him and Zabuzath, if that is indeed possible. Zabuzath is his life, his all, and he lives solely for his dragon to live. Perhaps this will change one day, perhaps H’ku will meet someone special enough to show him otherwise, but for now protecting and remaining loyal to his bronze is H’ku’s only ambition. His sweet nature can turn in an instant if his lifemate is threatened, and one would be wise to back away before H’ku demonstrates his skill at either swordplay and combat...or in the worse situation, both.
History: Mother: Kuna, Deceased, Highreaches Cothold
Information about H'ku (Hakune)'s dragon
Dragon Name: Zabuzath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: A large bronze with a very deep, burnished hide, Zabuzath’s colouring avoids the reddish tinge seen in many a bronze hide and instead leans towards copper. On his muzzle the deep hide lightens a little, and this is seen again just above his eye ridges. In size and proportions, Zabuzath is large, dwarfing his lifemate is startling contrast, and powerfully built. Long in the body, limb and wing, muscles ripple down his length, portraying his strength. Hatched: 08.08.09.xx
Personality: Zabuzath mainly adopts a cold, indifferent demeanor around others. He’s sneering, impolite, and always seems to be evaluating your worth. Calculating, he would seem better fitted wrapped in a brown’s hide, until you encounter his ambition. Oh, such ambition. Zabuzath believes that he can do anything, defeat any obstacle, and is quite convinced that he’s the most powerful bronze in the Weyr already. His drive to conquer is fearsome, and yet he won’t risk sabotage by showing this to just anyone. With H’ku, he will surely be unstoppable- at least Zabuzath believes so. Just a whelp of a boy, but with his help, H’ku could go miles too. Just as well that they stick together, then.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: A large bronze, Zabuzath has mountains of stamina and can produce a long and consistent flame almost effortlessly. Unfortunately, though quick to point out others he tends to overlook any shortcomings of his own, like agility. Also, he won't admit to needing help or being injured if he feels it will make him look weak.
