Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: N'kka is horribly disfigured and scarred since his tangle with Thread. His left eye has been permanently closed, his arm is still broken and in a cast, and his lip hangs down slightly so he does actually tend to drool a little bit. His hair is still a very healthy brown colour and serves as one of the few good-looking parts left on his body. His back and legs are riddled with scars and when he does walk, he walks with a limp. His one good eye is still the hazel colour.
Personality: N'kka is the epitome of depression. It was only the kind words and comfort of his brother Es'kay that kept him from staying *between* when they decided to come to Arolos. Es'kay is his world, and everything that is comfortable and sweet to him comes from Es'kay. He doesn't believe that anyone else would want to comfort him in the way his brother does (or anything more) so he tends to be anti-social and a bit quiet.
History: N'kka was born as Nikkau in Igen Weyr to the drudge Anailee. His brother Es'kay (Eselkay) was born two Turns later. However, Anailee never found out who it was that impregnated her either time and so both boys grew up without the knowledge of their biological father(s). They grew up proceeding down different paths in their life; while Eselkay tried to flirt and hang around girls as much as he could since he hit puberty, Nikkau was always much more feminine than his brother and kept himself busy with girls as well but in a different way. Despite the difference in personalities, the two brothers were always on good terms with one another and they supported each other right into Candidacy. Then, unexpectedly, both brothers had Impressed dragons from the same clutch; Eselkay had found his fudge-brown Dzorrth and become Es'kay, and Nikkau had found his sea-green Munaith and become N'kka. For the first few months of Weyrlinghood, they were separated as their dragonets were untrusting of one another. But after graduation, the brothers became close again.
Information about N'kka's dragon
Dragon Name: Munaith
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: Before her tangle with Thread, Munaith was a very beautiful dragon. Her sea-green colour was as bright as her personality and she was a very nimble and dainty little dragon. But then, Thread got to her and not only scarred her ego but parts of her as well. She looks like someone took a giant paintbrush and set to work painting the ugly, albino-white scars that practically litter her neck and front arms.
Personality: Her clutchbrother Dzorrth cares for her every need, so that Munaith will never have to move. If she's hungry, Dzorrth will supply fresh herdbeasts. If she itches or needs bathing, Dzorrth will do everything in his power to oil and bathe her. It may seem odd to see a dragon bathing another dragon but Munaith and Dzorrth are just that loyal towards one another.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: She can no longer fly as long or as high as she used to, even though mating flights are beginning to be the one true freedom she has left.
