Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Prawga is 5'6 and weighs 135. She has brown hair and brown eyes. Her hair is shoulder length and curly. She has a scar on her left leg that she got during weyrling training, when she and Ninenath were goofing off instead of working on some training they were supposed to be doing. As a result, Prawga slipped and fell on some rocks near the lake at High Reaches Weyr and got a long cut on her leg. She wears no jewelry but has a belt knife, given to her by her mother when she impressed Ninenath.
Personality: Prawga makes friends easily but has a bad habit of not obeying rules. She is given that since she has a problem obeying rules and orders, that she has never risen above wingrider. But she is good with helping people and she adores firelizards, even though she has none of her own. Though she has trouble obeying orders, Prawga is good with working with others. She likes helping out others and is willing to listen to anyone who has problems. She will put aside her problems to assist others, no matter what. Though she is totally different than her brothers and sister, Prawga still makes sure that she stays in touch with them, using a friend's firelizard to deliver the messages. Prawga hopes that if she is transferred to another Weyr, that Calara will move with her.
History: Prawga grew up at High Reaches Hold, the middle child of 4. She has an older brother, N'van-26 who is a bronzerider at High Reaches Weyr, a younger sister Calara-16 who is a candidate at High Reaches Weyr and a younger brother, Bralo-14 who is a harper. Their parents are proud of their children's accomplishments but were most proud of Prawga and N'van who both wanted to be dragonriders and both became dragonriders. But Prawga wants to be transferred to another Weyr, as she believes that maybe at a different Weyr, she could be a searchrider. She figures that maybe a bigger Weyr would have better opportunities for her and Ninenath than High Reaches. She also wants a change of scenery. She believes that if they could be transferred somewhere south of High Reaches it would be better for both of them. Although, Ninenath doesn't care where they transfer, as she believes that some of the greens at High Reaches dislike them and would rather they transfer to another Weyr. Prawga knows that a few of the female greenriders thought that Prawga shouldn't have impressed, but they couldn't do a thing about it. One greenrider, Terava thought that her sister should have impressed at the hatching that Prawga had impressed Ninenath but her sister had been left standing. Since then, Terava has never forgiven Prawga for that slight.
