Name Pronounced: Ko-Har-Ah
Appearance: Kohara is a young woman that stands at a height of 5'7" which is a fair height but not that tall. She has dirty blonde hair which flows down to end just past the edges of her shoulder blades. Her hair has a fair amount of volume to it and the ends of her hair tend to curl upwards, giving it a rather interesting appearance. She has a square cut of dirty blone bangs that sweeps down to end at the middle of her forehead, helping to frame her oval-shaped face. Two pencil thin eyebrows arch over her eyes with the base of her golden blonde eyebrows tending to be a bit thicker than the rest. Her eyes are a dark hazel in color and seem to hold a hint of mischief to them and there are a couple of laugh lines around the corners of her eyes. Her nose is on the small side but the bridge is rather angular, giving it an almost beak-like shape. Her lips are of medium thickness and are a light pale pink in color. His neck is narrow and her shoulders are angular but do have some muscle to them. Her upper arms a bit thick with muscle but thin out along the elbow and lower arm. She has a shallow threadscore scar across her left wrist that is faded, meaning it is likely rather old. Her chest is thin and she has breasts of medium size, though she is careful not to flaunt them by wearing clothing that covers them completely. Her stomach is on the thin side but she isn't overly skinny. Her legs are long and shapely and she has a small threadscore scar just above her left knee that trails down the side of her leg to just past the shin. Her skin is a creamy color, almost mocha in shade. She tends to wear fancy clothing and tends to favor pastel colors such as lavender or light blue.
Personality: Kohara is initially shy when meeting new people but she warms up to them quickly as soon as she finds common ground. She has a creative streak and can compose her own music which is usually designed so that she can play it on her flute. She has a real talent with the instrument and if she hadn't impressed Corsath she would have pursued a career as a harper. She can sing fairly well but her true talents are in composing music and playing the flute. Get her to try another other instrument aside from a flute or a reed pipe and her playing is pretty much average.
History: Kohara was born in Tillek Hold, the youngest of three siblings. Her brothers Tanmar and Kuryen were both older than her with Tanmar being two turns older and Kuryen being four turns her senior. Her mother Naytella was a Journeyman Weavercrafter while her father Aubren worked as a Sr. Journeyman Tannercrafter. Kohara was a rather timid and shy girl when she was young, rarely speaking and following her mother around whenever she could. Her mother thought it was just a phase but it didn't change much as she grew older, for she was still shy and timid although she no longer followed her mother around. The teasing from her rather rowdy brothers didn't help that much. Her mother taught her the basics of knitting and that seemed to occupy her for a while. She turned out to be rather dexterous with her fingers and learned some of the more complex knitting patterns with the help of her mother. On her 10th turn day her brother Tanmar gave her some small reed pipes as a gift, he said he hadn't know what else to get her since her parents and brother had already given her several knitting items. Kohara tried it and was delighted with the soft haunting sounds that came from it. That's when she discovered her talents for music and knitting was all but forgotten. She would spend candlemarks working out little tunes on her reed pipes, the melodies both haunting but beautiful.
Information about Kohara's dragon
Dragon Name: Corsath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Corsath is neither the largest of greens nor the smallest, her size an average 23 feet in length from muzzle to tail. Her muzzle is semi-broad with a shallow threadscore scar that runs along the bottom of her jaw for about two inches. Hunter green hues encompass her muzzle and flow up to end just before her eyeridges. Corsath's eyeridges are smooth and narrow, mostly a dark hunter green in color with a few faint speckles of ivy green overtop. Beneath her eyeridges are two wide almond-shaped eyes that whirl various colors depending on her mood. Near the back of her head are two long narrow head knobs that are a soft ivy green in shade. Her long slender neck is a solid hunter green in color with sharp stripes of ivy green running down diagonally in a jagged pattern. Corsath's neckridges are rather small and triangular in shape, mostly a dark hunter green with flecks of ivy green along the edges. Her front legs are of medium length and are a bit on the stocky side; they are both solid hunter green with misty bands of ivy green that wrap around rather like ribbons. Her dark hunter green front feet each sport a dangerous set of ivy green talons that have a slightly jagged edge to them. Her sides and belly are rounded, indicating that she eats rather well. Her curving belly is a soft sheen of ivy green that darkens to a hunter green upon her sides. Her wings are a little on the short side but to make up for it they are rather broad with thick muscle around the base of the wings. The tops of her wings look as if they are made up of thousands of hunter leaves, the various patterns mixing together and stopping only at the trailing edges. The undersides of her wings are a soft ivy green in shade with no other color or pattern present. Her back legs are a little longer than the front and more muscular and are a solid hunter green from haunch to hind feet. Her hind feet each sport a curved set of talons that are wider than those on her front feet. Corsath has a dark hunter green tail that is just over half the length of her body with an ivy green tail spade at the very end.
Personality: Corsath is a rather laid back green that follows the rules as much as she can and is generally obedient. She keeps a close eye on her rider since she knows Kohara will overwork herself if she isn't watched over carefully. She's forceful when it comes to looking after her rider and will demand she get some rest if she's been working too long. Corsath is sensitive to the emotions of others and often encourages others if they seem to doubt themselves. She likes the young whether they be weyrbrats or Candidates and will even go as far as to speak to them on occasion. She takes her duty as a search dragon very seriously and is very careful when she makes a selection. Corsath is a green who loves drama and will go out of her way to be overly dramatic when revealing her presence to a holder or a crafter that she wants to choose for search. That way they can have interesting tales to tell when they speak to other Candidates about how they were searched. She's quite amiable when it comes to dealing with other dragons and won't hesitate to speak to any color up to and including a bronze. She tends to be rather shy around golds because they are the highest of authority...to the point she will often avoid them if possible.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: Corsath is very obedient and will listen to orders well and do as she is asked without complaint. She is a bit nervous around golds because they hold such powerful positions of authority and tends to avoid them for that very reason. She has the average endurance of a green her size but her speed and agility are rather impressive. Corsath can be overconfident at times and overly dramatic, meaning her rider needs to keep a close eye on her. She has a talent for searching and tends to be about 70% accurate when choosing a Candidate. When it comes to fighting thread she has a medium length flame.
