Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Katana's got long tawny brownish amber hair with a few light brown highlights. She stands at a height of 5'7". Her skin is tanned an almondy brown and her eyes are an icey-blue in color. She's got a heartshaped face with a cute little button nose right in the center. She's got a smattering of freckles on her skin but you wouldn't know it unless you were standing right next to her as her tan hides them. She's got a scar on her right leg from being bitten by a canine when she was a little girl.
Personality: Katana has a bubbly personality. She's playful and loves teasing her friends with anything that she can get away with, but she doesn't do it in a mean or spiteful way though, she just likes to see people with a grin or in a good mood. She has been known to go a little bit overboard with her jokes though. She likes growing plants and has created a small little garden for herself in one of the shady areas along the path to the beaches. She also likes to swim in the oceans and lakes located around the weyr. One day she went down to the ocean, Katana noticed a tide pool and found a few empty shells with noone living in them, these she took back to her garden to decorate it with.
History: Katana was the daughter of a Journeywoman Beastcrafter and a brownrider. They had a very long and loving relationship and ended up Weyrmating before she was born. She grew up in a happy and supportive family at Igen Weyr. A few turns later, when Katana was just ten-turns-old, her Mother gave birth to a younger brother named Artur. To keep Katana from feeling too jealous when everyone was paying attention to her baby brother, she went on a little trip and returned a few candlemarks later with a wher egg pot that held a medium-sized egg for her daughter. That night after Artur was asleep, she called Katana into the mainroom and gave her the wher egg pot then. Katana had always wanted to become a dragonrider ever since she was old enough to help her father wash his brown lifemate in the ocean. Once she was old enough to Stand, Katana stood for every single hatching that there was always leaving the sands empty-handed as she watched her fellow Candidates walk off with baby dragonets, leaving her behind each time. Finally, at what seemed like a repeat of the *last* few hatchings that she'd Stood at, the second to last egg hatched and made a beeline for the sides of Katana's legs and she felt a tiny mindvoice touch and enter her thoughts. ((Mine, turn around, your Luneth is here.)) After sinking happily down to her knees and warmly hugging her green's neck , she introduced her to her family. A turn and eight months later, Katana happily joined the ranks of the rest of the dragonriders. After spending a few Turns at Igen, she felt the stirrings of wanderlust and after being granted permission finally ended up at Arolos Weyr, to make a name for herself there.
Information about Katana's pets
Pet Name: Chocolate
Pet Type: wher
Appearance: Chocolate is a dark brown. His topside is a very dark brown almost the color of melted chocolate that was left out in the sun too long. His underside is a cinnamony-tea mixture. Both color schemes intermix and run the length of his deformed wings, giving him a very interesting coloring scheme.
Personality: Chocolate is a thinker before doing things. He sits and takes in everything before he makes his mind up to do anything. He is somewhere inbetween impetuousness and being laid-back about things. His Pet's care is his top prioity however and will watch any male who comes close to his Tana, sometimes even growling softly when a male comes too close.
Information about Katana's dragon
Dragon Name: Luneth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Luneth is a combination of foresty and emerald green on top, mossy green on her underside and slightly sea-green and a sabley-pearish colored green on her wings. She was born slightly smaller than her other green sisters from her clutch but a small exterior hides a big heart.
Personality: Luneth is a flirty, playful green. She likes to watch the other greens when they go on their flights through the air and can't wait until she can do the same thing with the browns and bronzes when its her turn to have her own flight.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: Lunath's abilities are that because of her small size, she can squeeze into tiny places and get the thread that the bigger dragons might miss or can't get at because of their bigger size. Lunath's weakness is that she sometimes has a hard time paying attention to the lead dragon because a part of her mind is always thinking of other things and going onto the next tangible item and not always paying attention to what she's doing at that moment.
