Name Pronounced: Se-rin
Appearance: S'rin has short, thick black hair and black eyes. He has a very serious and delicate face, with elegant high arched eyebrows and raised cheeck bones. His muscle build is more inclined towards lean than burly, though he is not to be underestimated as an opponent. More often than not he sports a 'mysterious smile' (his words) that others might consider a condescending smirk if they aren't too fond of him. His good looks make him both loved and disliked... He is healthily tanned from being outside a lot and he has a golden ring in his right earlobe, giving him a handsome devil/bad boy kinda vibe. He has a tattoo of two feline eyes on his chest, a painful reminder that being young and stupid can have long lasting consequences. He sports a five-o'clock shadow that draws attention to the scarring on his left cheeck, because scars are pretty badass.
Personality: Being Hold bred, and mommy's little angel to boot, S'rin was brought up to have excellent manners, just like his numerous brothers and sisters. Being one of the youngest siblings offered him the twin advantage of a good education and enough freedom to find his own way. Sorin never had any wish to become a Lord Holder but learned pretty early on in life that being a fancy Lordling gets you all the good stuff. To that end he has perfected a roguishly handsome gentleman act which he has successfully used to sway many a young (and not so young) maiden (and not-so-maiden, very married) heart. He likes the finer things in life, like music, flowers and deep red wine. He's a good dancer and, since he outgrew his boyish demeanor at age 23, carries himself with a new confidence and dignity.
History: Sorin was born in Lemos Hold as the third son to the Lady Holder. His father always encouraged his children to find their own paths in life, especially since he couldn't be bothered to find all of them a suitable occupation. Since Sorin had no claim to Lemos Hold unless by some unfortunate miracle half of his siblings dropped dead, he was free to play around in the mud with the other kids and get into all sorts of trouble. Sorin learned pretty early on that being overly polite and proper made him look adorable and irresistible to the women around him, who in turn doted on him for being such a 'perfect little gentleman'. He shouldered the mockery and mean remarks from his older brothers and sisters with a smile: he was mommy's little angel, and he could get away with a lot of shenanigans that would get his older siblings into real trouble had they attempted any. When Sorin had just turned 13, he stole 2 firelizard eggs from his older brother, Daninan, who has a golden and a Bronze firelizard. His mother, Lady Drela, couldn't believe her little boy actually did this. Both his parents were furious, but he looked very sad and wailed like a little child, claiming he was sorry and didn't mean anything bad by it.
Information about S'rin's pets
Pet Name: Daninan
Pet Type: flit
Appearance: A brown, tiny firelizard. He has a little white spot on the tip of his nose. His brown is like the bark of an oak, and there's a mossgreen sheen on his tail and his neck, as if to emphasize the resemblance.
Personality: He is blessed with the same brand of charm as S'rin, including the sly streak that gets him what he wants. His affections are a lot more sincere, though. He's a real charmer, that likes to be spoiled by anyone. It's quite easy to bribe this little flit into liking someone, as he'll do anything for a juicy slice of meat. He used to be mated to Lass, and even though he has been unable to catch her in the last few mating flights, he is still very fond and protective of her.
Second Pet Name: Lass
Pet Type: flit
Appearance: A beautiful green firelizard. She is very energetic. Her little wings are emerald-shiny with a vaguely yellow shine on them, which she is well aware of. She tries to clean it of all the time, not aware of the little fidgety habit making her look adorable.
Personality: Lass loves to swim, becaus the water makes her hide shine. She is overly fond of S'rin, as firelizards sometimes tend to be, but where most flits grow out of their need for physical proximity to their human, Lass never really quite 'left the nest'. She has claimed the patched spot on S'rin's left shoulder as her own and rarely ever leaves his side. The first few turns of her life she was mated to Daninan, but after some time at High Reaches Weyr she has opened up to the thought of different suitors. She's a very dominant figure and has severe abandonment issues. She used to freak out when Daninan would go wandering off on his own, but has calmed down in recent turns.
Third Pet Name: Corral
Pet Type: flit
Appearance: A blue flit with fine wings, with a little green weaved into them. He's bigger than his brown 'brother' Daninan and never lets the brown forget that. He has a very dark blue smudge on his left front paw.
Personality: An extremely shy flit with a need of love and as much attention as possible. He loves to fly around people's heads, to see how that they react, driving more than just S'rin insane. He has his eye on the coveted spot on S'rin's left shoulder and constantly challenges Lass for it. So far he hasn't had much luck; she pull ages on him, and when that didn't work (once! only once!) she pulled Daninan's rank on him. Corral grudgingly acknowledges Lass as his rival and worthy opponent.
Information about S'rin's dragon
Dragon Name: Gorath
Age: 13 turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): Unforgettables (Adoptables Wing)
Appearance: He's one of the bigger, Browns in the Weyr. He has a little bit of bronze weaved into his brown colour, swirling in an almost vine-like pattern over his entire body, making his eyes look somewhat feline-like due to some pretty awesome optical illusions by mother nature. He has big, overly muscled wings and he hardly needs to jump at all to get airborne... should he be bothered to take off from the ground... which he hardly ever is. He has a long threadscar running over the left of side of his body, starting at his front paw to half way his haunches. His left shoulder itches very often due to some minor nerve damage.
Personality: He likes to fly around above the Weyr in the night. He isn't like his rider, not at all, he's very calm, and doesn't like it that his rider is such a charmer, especially if S'rin's latest 'victim' is a dragonrider or otherwise emotionally unavailable. He hopes to find a good Weyrmate for his rider and is known to play matchmaker on numerous occasions. He's not very chatty but, so S'rin's dismay, isn't very picky about who he talks to.
Weyr of Origin: High Reaches
Abilites and weaknesses: He can hold his breath for twenty-five minutes. He's a little ticklish.
