Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Keal'ol it seems will never lose his boyish face under his close cut mop of brown hair. It's a decent looking face, for sure, despite the light freckles that constantly bug him, but it doesn't have that ruggedness that most male riders get after 5 years of riding. He does, however, bear his share of smaller scares, more from scratching himself in his forrays out of the weyr rather than from threadscoring, although that fact could be contributed to luck rather than carefulness. His hands bear most of the scars, the mark of a boyhood spent climbing in and out of places he shouldn't have been.
Personality: Keal'ol should know better by now. Scratch that, he _does_ know better by now, but that doesn't mean he listens. He's well aware of the fact that he should be more careful in fall, that he should show up to meetings on time, that he shouldn't drink when he has to be up in the morning, that he shouldn't go after people with weyrmates, that he shouldn't...well do most things that he does. Most of his actions won't get him into too much trouble on his own, but people do get sick of saying 'Keal'ol, no!' The constant refrain is usually more reserved for a wayward child or dog than a full grown dragonrider, but c'est la vie.
History: Keal'ol was born and raised in Ista. His parents were a green dragonrider and a male drudge. his mother, Kalaneal was more than happy to take care of him, at least until he started crying his head off. Apparently she wasn't as fond of motherhood as she thought she would be when she was pregnant. That was easily fixed, though. Jol, his father, was more than ready to fill her shoes. Although it was likely he had other children, no other women came forward and told him, so he was more than pleased when Kealjol was dropped off on his doorstep.
Information about Keal'ol's dragon
Dragon Name: Herronth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Herronth is a auburn brown colored dragon, much more reddish in color than dark brown. He's tall for a brown dragon, but lacks the bulk he should have. Although he is lighter, and thus slightly faster than he would have been, he lacks the stamina and agility afforded to a bulkier or more compact dragon. He has a curious little swirl of darker hide down the middle of his forehead and some small, but discernable, spots on his flank. Keal'ol claims it makes the dragon unique. Herronth insists that it makes him look funny.
Personality: Herronth should have been a bronze, at least judging by his preoccupation with his looks. He won't as readily Chase, often missing flights becuase he's complaining that his swirls make the females ignore him, but he will Chase a confident moment hits him.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: Herronth tends to be distractable and impatient. He wants what he wants when he wants it. His size makes him awkward in the air and he tires easily.
