Character type: Weyrling
Appearance: Seltyn is never still; some part of him is always in motion, whether a tapping foot or a fidgeting hand. He is average height, though a little skinny. His dark brown hair is roughly cut, possibly by his own hand. Other than that, he's made an effort to keep it presentable. His fair skin is tanned from the Southern sun, as he has spent months in this area of the continent. His eyes are a dark blue- gray. He is also a semi- accomplished actor, most of the time knowing just how to talk or act to create the impression he wants.
Personality: Seltyn appears shy and quiet at first glance, an image helped along by his nervous- seeming constant fidgets. He has a gift for attracting or avoiding attention almost as he pleases. He has a passion for challenges and complex problems, and may try to bend the rules, just to see if he can, and how far. If he gets in trouble for it, he'll insist he didn't *mean* to go that far, and it'll most likely be the truth. "Trouble is such a strong word... To those that make an effort to befriend him, he will do his best to return that effort with whatever he can. Seltyn is one of those people that *needs* to be busy. Maybe steady rules and discipline will even him out...
History: Seltyn was born the fourth eldest of six siblings, three brothers and two sisters. His parents were the leaders of one of the smaller, less- honest trader bands, and were often busy with the band as a whole. He and his siblings were kept fed and clothed, of course, but beyond that, they were left mainly to their own devices. Possibly because of that, they were always close, figuratively and literally.
Information about N'les's dragon
Dragon Name: Caracath
Age: 2-3 months
Wing (Weyrling Group): MelodyMakers
Appearance: Caracath is a mid sized brown with a hide that looks like something that could be found on a well worn- and thus comfortable- leather jacket. His wings are wider and shorter than usual but when put to the test he's a great natural flier which will certainly put his rider's mind at ease during his first flight.
Personality: He is generally a kindly brown, fond of small children and pets but he is also quick to take offence at real or imagined slights. He can take care of himself and his rider, thank you very much, and he'll view anything that he deems to be charity with a jaundiced eye and plenty of complaints. For example, if his rider is injured he'd rather go dirty than have to put up with a pity bathing from a bunch of Candidates.
