Name Pronounced: Key-Oh
Appearance: K'yo is not the tallest of riders out there but he stands at a fair height of 5'11" with a willowy build. His hair is quite distinquishable with its cinnamon brown coloration which flows down to just below his ears. He tends to keep his hair brushed down flat but there's often a few strands that stick out here and there. He has thicky spiky cinnamon brown bangs that hang down low over his narrow forehead. Kyo's eyebrows are pencil thin and are set rather close to his eyes, giving him an almost sinister impression. His eyes are a dark ginger brown in color that are wide and hold a lot of depth for emotion within them. His nose is rather angular and narrow with a thin bridge and oval nostrils. He has a fairly wide mouth, however his lips are thin and are a pale pink in color.
Personality: K'yo is a complex person and it isn't always easy to understand him at first because his behavior is a bit conflicting. He can appear overly serious and aloof and gets easily annoyed with people, saying the wrong thing when he doesn't mean to.
History: Kuyo was born in Crom Hold, the eldest of three siblings. His mother Hanaia was a Journeyman Weavercrafter and his father Rujon was a Journeyman Minercrafter. His brother Shagure was younger than him by two turns and his sister Kyai was younger than him by four turns. His father was an extremely strict man who had high expectations of him and Shagure, though he cared little for Kyai just because she was a girl. His father was someone who had a rather chauvinistic attitude and had a limited view when it came to women.
Information about K'yo's dragon
Dragon Name: Durcth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Durcth is a massive brown that is a full 35 feet in length and perhaps even an inch or two larger. His muzzle is both wide and broad, an expanse of dark brown, the color of rich loam soil. The loam brown coloration flows up to end just before his eyeridges. His eyeridges are gently rounded and very prominent, a combination of rich loam brown with faint streaks of cinnamon brown. His eyes are almond-shaped and narrow, helping to give him a more sinister appearance. Just behind his left eye is a silvery-white threadscore that trails down to end half-way down his cheek. The threadscore scar is rather faint and blurred around the edges, meaning it is likely rather old. Near the back of his head are two short stubby head knobs that are a light cinnamon brown in color.
Personality: Durcth is not as serious as some browns tend to be and he has a much more carefree attitude, perhaps in stark contrast to his rider's more rigid one. He works little by little on getting his rider to loosen up more and relax and it seems to be working to some extent. When it comes to dealing with other dragons he tends to be mild-mannered and perceptive, keeping a close eye on their behavior as much as his rider does with humans.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: Durcth has a great amount of edurance because he is so large and is also physically strong. He has a good strong flame that he can sustain for several minutes. He has the common weaknesses of most browns such as a lack of agility and being slow to turn. His memory is fairly good but he's forgetful of small details he doesn't consider important. He is reliable and encourages others but he tends to like to bend the rules often and it will get him into trouble sometimes. He is also overly protective of his rider and it will take some convincing to let others touch his rider when his rider is injured.
