Appearance: Kaelan has naturally wild Auburn hair, unfortunately as his parents taught him to be as tidy and neat as possible. He has warm hazel eyes that can appear both hard and soft depending on the situation that he is in and what is necessary and whether he is happy or interested in what’s happening. Kaelan is lightly tanned with freckles over the bridge of his nose which is small. He is quite short for his age and quite thin though he hopes that he will eventually be taller. Kaelan’s face is oval shaped with his chin slightly rounded. Kaelan is considered slightly cute which is starting to annoy him a bit more than it used to.
Personality: Kaelan is a very friendly person who is open to trying new things and ideas. Kaelan likes learning new things especially in a group where he can help others if he understands aspects that they didn't. He is also willing to accept help from others and willing to admit he does not know everything. However Kaelan does have a tendency to hate being underestimated particularly with regards to his size and will often work twice as hard as before to prove any doubters wrong. This can lead to him doing too much at times, but this is helped by the fact that he is a very loyal person and likes to have as many friends as possible. Kaelan also is a very neat and organised person as he was brought up to be. Kaelan also has a tendency to question things that does not make sense, however he is also willing to listen to explanations though if it still makes no sense to him, Kaelan will still continue to question it and stubbornly hold to his point of view if he thinks something is wrong. He is also a very active person.
History: Kaelan is the oldest son of Conal and Breida who live in Themis cothold near Forest Edge Hold. He has Four younger siblings Naithyn, Polla, Jervan and Bekka. Conal and Brieda taught their children how to read, write and figure as well as how to do lots of little jobs around the Cothold. His parents taught him to be as neat as possible in order to give the best possible impression to others. Kaelan helped out with his younger siblings but also explored the area near the Cothold. Kaelan has been brought up to be independent and resourceful but also responsible and to know that duty has to come first. Although this does not mean that Conal and Breida do not want their children to leave the cothold, they just wanted them to learn that once they have given their commitment to anything or anyone they should take it seriously especially when there are lives at stake. The family that Kaelan was brought up in was a very happy family and both Conal and Breida have encouraged their children to dream and work towards their dreams. Kaelan has always wanted to be a dragonrider but he has never shown any resentment towards the idea of him staying at home and helping out. His parents have said that if an opportunity comes for him to leave and do what he wants they would not stop him and would approve of what he decides. Kaelan has a small group of friends from the near cotholds: Zan, Kir, Kenvan, Amala, Brala and Thea who are very close to him and they often explore the area together when they are all free to do so. Kaelan has also helped his mother heal sick animals around the cothold by fetching and holding things for her and those he finds on his journeys. As such during those times he often has long discussions with his mother then and his father when they are fixing things around the cothold by holding and fetching things for him.
