Character type: Dragonrider
Appearance: Sykorie is a slim young woman, lithe and graceful in appearance while her height, around 5’8” makes her a bit awkward when she actually tries to move. But she has left childhood behind and is looking more mature with each day. Her curves are developing and she isn’t exactly flat chested.
Personality: Sykorie’s appearance is in a way misleading. Although pretty in a demure sort of way Sykorie has moved away from the wall flower she was before becoming a dragonrider. She is a funny, teasing woman, who enjoys the hilarity of being around wilder people.
History: Sykorie was born to a young drudge, Syla, at Nerat Hold. Her father has always been unknown to Sykorie and she always just assumed the man who'd sired her had been handfasted to someone else, or had left her mother before either one realized there was a child involved. Syla, barely fourteen with a babe, left her life at Nerat to travel with a Journeyman harper took her with him to the nearby Farmercrafthall where the unlikely pair created a family. Harper Corbin became Sykorie's real father and soon provided her with several brothers and sisters to make their family complete.

Pet Name: Dara
Pet Type: Canine
Appearance: Dara is a sweet faced canine. She has liquid brown eyes, and knows how to use them when she wants something. Dara looks very similar to a terran black and white collie. She's not overly large. While her body is mostly back with white spots, her face is predominantly white.
Personality: Dara is very friendly and loving. She loves her Sykorie, but is also very outgoing towards others. She loves to play tug-a-war, and wrestle with her fellow canines. Dara doesn't like being alone for long, and while she'll grow more independent as she gets older, she prefers company, even if she doesn't know them.
Information about Sykorie's dragon
Dragon Name: Rezymth
Wing (Weyrling Group): InfernoStorm
Appearance: Rezymth is a pretty dragon all told. Her hide is an even, peridot green. Her wingspan is wide and while it once plagued the young dragonet is now an efficient tool for graceful liftoffs and gains in altitude. Her body is on the small size, something that bothers her to no end. She often takes the role of younger sister longing to be the large and stunning older sister. But while she whines about it there’s nothing to be done about it. Any male dragon looking for her favors would do well to avoid the words ‘little’ in her presence.
Personality: Rezymth is a friendly dragon, like her rider, but a bit more reserved. Although she has rarely ever chosen the same male twice in flight she is a green who enjoys being around the same group of friends. Occasionally she plagues her rider by developing heartfelt crushes on older handsome dragons, proclaiming them her true love. These crushes sometimes have painful endings in which the normally happy green broods, but those never last too long.
Weyr of Origin: Ista
Abilites and weaknesses: Rezymth’s demure size gives her trouble in flight. While a magnificent sprinter she needs a few more breaks than she would like. She is a team player and just wishes she could be a team player throughout a threadfall.
