Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Already large for his age at a tall 6'2, and with a frame hinting at a powerful physique in the future and a height ending around 6'4, Sanvic still retains the somewhat gangly look of a young man who's last and probably final intense growth spurt saw the bones outrace the rest of his body. He's not a particularily handsome speciman, not ugly by any means but rather plain and average in his facial features. The only thing that really stands out about him at the moment is his height. He prefers to keep his rather dark brown hair cropped rather short, and what remains often curls in a haphazard way due to the heat much to his chagrin. Neither striking, nor vivid, yet pleasant all the same, his eyes are a medium grey/blue and stand out well when his fair complexion is sunburnt, a state he often suffers. His voice, having long changed is light, friendly and pleasant, though nothing the harpers would be knocking down his door about. Suffering from the heat, he tends to wear lighter clothes and often a wide reed hat when outdoors to protect his face from Rukbat's harsh rays.
Personality: Usually pleasant and friendly, Sanvic learned long ago from his mother that it was easier to catch trundlebugs with sweetener then with vinegar, and he will always attempt to put on a friendly face even if it is the last thing he wants to do at the moment. Rather then showing anger in situations that call for it, he will instead restrain his feelings and grow more cold and polite the further he is pushed. As with most people who bottle up their emotions there is always the unfortunate chance that after enough has been built up an explosion could take place, and sometimes not at the thing that had been bothering him the most. His fits of temper can be explosive and startling to those who have never seen it happen before, and he always feels horrible afterwards for losing his cool, especially when he recalls what happened when his father lost his temper during his stint as a candidate. His generally mellow attitude coupled with his large frame can give him the impression of being rather slow to those that dont know him, though that is very far from the truth.
History: Sanvic grew up in a small cot hold on the outskirts of Crom, where his family raised wherries. He is the middle child of three siblings, having an older brother and a younger sister. He had a fairly happy childhood, times were lean on occasion but his father knew his craft and managed to keep his family relatively well fed and happy even during the worst of times. His father was a gruff humourless man, but his lighthearted mother more then made up for the worst of his fathers tempers. A temper that became more frequent once thread began to fall and dragons were most often seen overhead. For the longest time he assumed that his father was angry over having to send of a selection of his prized wherries for the tithe to Telgar Weyr every year, but his mother soon set him straight after his father had ranted one night for hours about an arguement he had with a rider when Sanvic was 10. It turned out that his father had been a candidate at Telgar many years back, but had been turned out from the program in shame after he knocked several teeth out of a fellow candidate during a fight. Embarrased and disgraced he had gone back to the family farm where he immersed himself in the beastcraft, eventually meeting his wife and inheriting the cot hold from his own father. Understanding why his father was so bitter, Sanvic took care after that to never mention dragons again to his father, though he would watch them avidly whenever they passed overhead, and signed up for the ground crews pretty much the moment he was 12 turns old. After his 12th birthday he also started working with the family wherries in a more serious manner under the strict eye of his father, and especially enjoyed learning to keep the breeding records up to date though he wasnt very fond of the stupid dirty creatures themselves.

Pet Name: Nipper
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Nipper is a smallish milk chocolate brown Flit with a slightly darker back then belly. His hide shows off his good health and careful tending with a scar on his side being his only blemish. He recieved that scar when he was 5 months old after he got too close to one of the holds canines while teasing it, and was clipped on the side by a tooth before he managed to pop between. That incident caused him to hate canines, and he will squeal and posture aggresively at them though he is always careful to stay out of reach.
Personality: Almost 2 turns old now, Nipper is a good little flit, decently trained and reasonably dependable with the delivery of messages. He likes to hang around his pet as much as he can, and can occasionally become annoying in his neverending quest to be scratched and petted.

Information about S'vic's dragon
Dragon Name: Jsonneth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Egg - Weaver's Delight Egg: The Weaver's Delight Egg frankly looks as if a few highly trained weavers had started to weave a complicated set of fabrics while under the influence and had some how come up with a cloth that was suitable for any occasion. From impressing someone (in all senses of the word) to every day wear, to the sort of comfortable thing you would throw on for visits of people you knew so well it didn't matter what you were wearing. A fabric for every occasion, tough or easy, it would be the garment you turned to without even thinking about and perhaps that you might just take for granted.
Personality: Jsonneth is a dark brown of medium size who has some of the best traits of a brown dragon. He's strong, he's reliable, he's intelligent and even from the egg he will be worried and concerned about others. He also is a great conversationalist and can give as good as he gets and match anyone quip for quip.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
