Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Sh'ain is 5’10”, with light green eyes with flecks of grey and bright red hair, which he wears shoulder-length and tied back. While in good shape - a fringe benefit of being a 'rider - he's never been overly strong. He's also fairly attractive, often made more so by the fact that he doesn’t really seem to realize it. He's got a faint network of scars across his back, a result of many 'lust-fueled 'mothings with women with long nails, and a small scar on his right thumb that even HE can't remember how he got.
Personality: Sh'ain is friendly, charming, and outgoing, the kind of person who can make friends with pretty much everybody. He has a perfect memory; if he’s seen or heard something, he can remember it – though it may take a moment’s thought if it was just in passing - so he can often be seen leaning back, apparently staring into space (or napping) while really "playing back" a memory.
History: -Born: 06.12, 16 years before the present Pass
Information about Sh'ain's pets
Pet Name: Abatos
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: The spitting image of his father Maxel. Large and black, Abatos can appear quite menacing - or just as cuddly. It all depends on how much he likes you. He's a few Turns old. Still has his tail, unlike his deceased father.
Personality: Abatos is fiercely protective of Sh'ain, and will defend his master in a fight. Friendly to those who don't try to harm Sh'ain, he still watches them with a guarded eye until he comes to trust them.
Second Pet Name: Arolos Dancer (or "Not Food", to Rhyth)
Pet Type: Runner
Appearance: A strawberry roan stallion standing just over 14 hands tall; black mane and tail and black stockings. Dancer has a white star on his forehead, narrowing to a stripe. Built for distance, he can still be rather quick, like his sire Artaq.
Personality: Fortunately for everyone at the stables, Dancer is a lot more... accommodating than Artaq ever was. Where Artaq only suffered a few trusted people to handle him, Dancer will allow most people to handle him - although he'll kick up a fuss if anyone outside "the family" tries to ride him.
Information about Sh'ain's dragon
Dragon Name: Rhyth
Age: 17 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: -Hatched: 8.06.05.01 (StarShines)
Personality: Like rider, like dragon: if there's a flight, no doubt Rhyth is participating. Probably not winning, due to all his attempts, but still giving it his all. When he's not chasing or engaged in pesky activities like drilling, Rhyth can often be found by the Lake chatting up a green (or 3).
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: With his size comes great stamina - Rhyth can easily last an entire Fall. He doesn't have the agility or speed of other blues, but that's fine by him: he can last almost as long as the average brown (and far longer than the average blue) and is quicker than them to boot.
