Name Pronounced: Keye-anna
Appearance: Long strawberry blonde hair, which she keeps in a bun while riding and Threadfighting, but otherwise lets hang loosely. Round, full face which makes her look younger than her Turns, and will only continue to do so as she gets older. Fair-ish complexion – she doesn’t go out in the sun much. Actually, that’s the biggest thing she hates about Sef Weyr – the location. Why couldn’t it have been up North? Large green eyes which are hidden by the glasses which she wears. Her eyesight is less than stellar.
Personality: Very outgoing, active, and curious. She works hard and loves harder. Her dragon is her life, but the people of the Weyr are her blood. She is almost fanatical in her belief that what Sef Weyr is doing, is the right thing to do – up to and including allowing the scientists which she trusts the most one egg per clutch from Wyeth to experiment on/alter. Wyeth isn’t quite so on board with this, but she loves Kyana and puts up with it.
History: Kyana was born at Telgar Weyr, to an engineer and a geneticist. When the SEF project was announced, they were among the first to volunteer to go south, and took their five-year old daughter with them. And that was when Anibal found out that Kyana was extremely curious, and smart. She fostered Kyana’s curiousity, teaching her while she worked, and even allowed Kyana to handle some of the less dangerous equipment and chemicals.
Information about Kyana's dragon
Dragon Name: Wyeth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Ignore
Appearance: So far, the largest gold ever Hatched on Pern (which, when measured against the Arolosian golds is laughable.) Very pale gold overall, but with darker gold shading. Quick and lithe.
Personality: Wyeth is actually the most laid-back gold anyone has ever seen. And friendly. She likes to talk to people – any people, whether they are riders, candidates, support staff. Because she is so laid back she also sort of shares Kyana’s passion for SCIENCE!!!. She allows the scientists to experiment on her, to see how the Clutches come out. She's even been known to offer up one egg per Clutch for experimentation – provided it is not a gold egg. Since most experimentation happens either before or during pregnancy, her offer hasn't been taken up yet, but she's curious to see something happen. She's a very friendly, sweet and talkative dragon, and yet very protective of any eggs when she's Clutching.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: She is large, but because she is more sinuous than chunky, she is quite agile. And because she is so agile, she tries to do more than she actually can.
