Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: How to describe Jadzea. Well, she's average height for a woman on Pern. Average weight, too. Her hair is brown, but it isn't mousy brown, it's just brown and she wears it in a low ponytail most of the time because she's a dragonrider and it is more efficient that way. Her eyes aren't blue exactly, no, on second look they are a blue-grey almost looking less blue when she's angry. Is there anything not average about this woman? Under the dragonrider clothing is a very shapely figure. Not overly shapely, but nicely curved. Under all that soot from flying thread while astride firebreathing green Teddith is a sweet, but not beautiful face. Jadzea cleans up nice after a day of dragonriding. Nice like the twentysomething turn old girl next door who any mother would like her son to bring home as his fiance.
Personality: This lady is a giggler at times. She can't help it. It just bubbles up when she is amused. But don't let that fool you. This gal can handle anything life throws at her and that includes lust happy dragonriders. She's smart and knows how to show off her feminine assets and when Teddith rises, Jadzea doesn't shrink away from getting the most out of flightlust. She took her dragonrider training seriously and has decked a overzealous rider and walked out on him a time or two. There's a time for business and a time for fun and she knows the difference. She's young yet, but her biological clock is ticking a little louder and that desire to find a weyrmate is beginning to settle in, too.
History: Jadzae's parents met at a Gather some 26 years ago. Her father is a cotholder in Telgar protectorate who found a lady who caught his eye who was a tanner senior apprentice who was working a stall. They married soon after and she carried her craft to his cothold and continued life as a cotholder's wife. 7 children were born to this couple. Jadzea was the 3rd of the brood of 7. At 13, Jadzea found herself searched by a Telgar Weyr rider and her parents somewhat grudgingly, but a bit proudly, let the rider whisk their Jadzea away. Jadzea stood for 2 years before green Teddith found her on the hatching sands. Her parents and brothers and sisters were at each hatching to watch and were proud to have a dragonrider in the family.
Information about Jadzea's pets
Pet Name: Sipper
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: Sipper is a sky blue flit. He is a little small and from a wild clutch.
Personality: Sipper is faithful to his pet and to his big green cousin. He's not the smartest flit, but has learned a few simple commands and has learned to carry messages.

His mindimages aren't brilliant, but he gets the message across even if it is to the wrong people at first.
