Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Mirande is a slightly stocky- yet strong bodied from years of dragonriding- young woman who stands at 5'5. Well suited to the South, her skin has an olive cast that will tan well and keep it. Her hair is one of her vanities and she refuses to cut the thick wavy almost black mass even if it does get hot. She does tend to tie it up into a knot or a runners tail when working or when the days get excessively humid.
Personality: Friendly and gregarious, Mirande is happiest spending time with friends or with her son. She loves social situations of all kinds, from one on one to large groups and gathers. On the other hand, she hates to be alone and its a good thing that her dragon loves company as much as she does.
History: The daughter of a greenrider, who was the daughter of another greenrider, Mirande grew up at Telgar Weyr and then continued the family tradition by Impressing green Sarenth when she was 14 turns old.
Information about Mirande's pets
Pet Name: Berdie
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Berdie is a large, generally well proportioned brown flit- his neck and tail are a little long but they don't really detract from his appearance. The majority of his hide is a warm shade of cinnamon brown flecked throughout with a deeper darker shade which almost makes him appear pitted.
Personality: Berdie is a quiet, calm flit which is a bit of a contrast to his owner. He isn't a particularly snuggly fire lizard, he likes to be near Mirande but he is more often seen on a shelf or a rafter rather than perched on her shoulder. He's a clever fellow, and will follow simple directions such as delivering notes with ease and can be trusted to do such things in a timely manner.
Information about Mirande's dragon
Dragon Name: Sarenth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CandidateMasters
Appearance: Sarenth is a large stocky green with a shorter than usual tail which adds to her stocky appearance. She is as strong as her body type suggests and has more stamina than the average green so she can last longer during fall but her agility suffers for it.
Personality: Like her rider, Sarenth is friendly and gregarious. She loves other dragons and most other creatures in general. She even likes herdbeasts but not to the point where she agonizes over eating them when hungry. She will occasionally speak to someone who isn't her rider if she feels the urge too. Usually if she feels that they need a kind word or a bit of encouragement.
Weyr of Origin: Telgar
Abilites and weaknesses: As a large stocky green, Sarenth has more stamina than the average green but less agility. She is obedient due to her eagerness to please other dragons and will listen carefully to orders.
