Name Pronounced: kay ge
Appearance: Kaji is actually a rather tall boy for his age at somewhere about 5’8” tall now having grown another two inches in just the last turn, but he has very little in the way of weight on him at somewhere about a scant 140 pounds.
Personality: Kaji’s first dream he can ever remember was to be a rider and have a FireMaker of his own so needless to say he was so beyond ecstatic when his dream came true though it was hampered some by the loss of one of little FireMakers. He loves all three of his beloveds and will not hear a word against any of them and scoffed fighting all the harder the time he was told Kawaii wouldn’t live past the sevenday. He will never give up on any FireMaker at least not if he can help it and he has only become all the more dedicated to the ‘cause’ after the severe injury of his beloved blue.
History: He was born three turns into the new pass on the eighth day of the first month to a greenrider due to a goldflight. She had been mothing the flight and ended up with one of the bronzeriders to lose. He had as normal a childhood as any Weyrbrat did, his mother keep him long enough to nurse him before turning him over to the crèche for the better part of the day. He was never actually fostered out like most brats though instead his mom came to get him from the crèche for the night more often then not so he is closer to her then some children of dragonriders.
Information about Kaji's pets
Pet Name: Green Star
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: She was hatched on the larger side and she stayed that way now landing her towards the size of a smaller blue; this girl was named ‘Star’ for a reason. While she is clearly green there is also a hint that maybe she isn’t. Her hide is a darker green something close to a hunter green for the most part in truth except for the sails of her wings while are couple shades lighter. The only thing ‘marring’ her appearance is what makes it questionable that maybe she is gold under there someplace. Her hide is well flecked with a lighter green that is almost yellowish in tint, it’s not a true yellow but it is an odd enough shade of green that just maybe that /is/ a goldenish color just there. If she shifted though the illusion is ruined and you have to watch her again for it to come back letting the ‘gold’ fade once more and she is clearly green. So she was named ‘Star’ for the goldenish color as it reminds Kaji of the sun and ‘Green’ because she clearly is. Hatched: 8.15.02.10
Personality: This little girl seems to think herself to be golden somewhere under that green hide of hers. She is not like a typical green with a golden complex though, no hers has a new twist. She likes to stick closer to her pet to be there incase he needs her, but will always be there to bale her clutchmate, as she sees Cloud, out of problems she may get into after all that is what a good gold does. Not only that but she has a fondness for the shiny hide that is usually associated with her longer sisters as well and seems to only want to flirt with the bronzes mustless her pouting if she isn’t chased by any, when she gets older of course. The same goes for her clutches, she wants no one near them except for her clutchmate and her pet anyone else is off limits. Which means problems for Kaji if he tries to give away any of her clutches he may find, but like any ‘Lizard golden green or otherwise a firm enough command and you can usually get them to do anything you want.
Second Pet Name: Kawaii
Pet Type: Green Firelizard
Appearance: This firelizard is white, the pure clear white of untainted snow. His coloring makes the eye long for something to break the monotony, the crispness of the pure absence of color. As you look at him the eyes will paint him with whatever color he is around, whether it be the blue of the skies, the red of a coat or the green of trees or the tint of gold from candle light. However, no matter all the colors you think you might see in his smooth hide or even the colors you might want to see there, there is little doubt that there really is no color to his hide and that in itself is almost eerily beautiful.
Personality: He is very much an asexual firelizard, no green, nor gold will ever gain his attention. He is very much his pet’s boy, always near enough to his pet to see him. He is driven by the need to keep his pet safe, to protect him from any enemies. All who meet him for the first time will be greeted with a steady glare. Should they come closer it is a hiss, or a growl. He will not attack until provoked, and even when provoked he it will take a while for him to loose his control. Any insult to his pet, or those his pet values however must be dealt with by force immediately. His tiny size is nothing compared to his dragon sized protective streak- he will willingly put his body on the line to protect his pet.
Information about Kaji's dragon
Dragon Name: Chateauperth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Thunder Flame
Appearance: Egg - Ropes of Many Colors Egg: What an unusual egg, but then again aren't they all? Your eyes just don't seem to be able to focus as they gaze upon this egg. When you stop trying to piece this egg together, mentally twisting and turning it to align things just right, you'll finally notice just how remarkable it is.
Personality: While his looks may make one think Chateauperth is stuck up or conceited it is also good to remember looks can be deceiving … sometimes.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Chateauperth was one a rather strong flyer, able to pull his part in fall easily and still have a bit left in him. Since the accident though he's barely able to sustain flight any longer and aside from brief flights to hunt doesn't in fact usually fly as he is so hampered now.
