Name Pronounced: tabaran
Appearance: Dark red hair tumbles forth from his scalp, reaching an average of three inches long. It's thin and tends to stand on it's own, much against T'baran's wishes, especially after pulling off his riding cap. T'baran spends a lot of time combing into submission and will often pat down the top and back of his head.
Personality: T'baran is a fairly relaxed individual. He's a team player, having no problems in following his duties and obeying his wingleader's orders. Not many things faze him on a surface level, though he takes oaths and promises fairly seriously and will make sure you follow through. He can be jealous in serious relationships but has learned to not attach himself to anyone he beds.
History: T'baran was born in Igen Weyr, the product of his mother losing a flight and finding solace in a lucky candidate. Tolba birthed him and left him in the creche and from that point on barely had much of a relationship with her son. His father Iroh did not impress and returned to his craft. Tolbaran often wondered later in life if his father knew he was a father, and if he might have half brothers and sisters scattered all over Pern. His expectations weren't very high, though, considering that Tolba didn't even tell him his fathers name until he was in his twenties.
Information about T'baran's pets
Pet Name: Red
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Nothing is peculiarly special about the size and proportion of the dragonet, except for the reddish clay-brown color that covers him from nose to tail.
Personality: Patient and curiously cautious, Red likes to be near his rider but rarely approaches him when he's with company unless it is something important. His favorite place to bask is atop Bolleth's snout and at night he sleeps curled up against T'baran's left side (meaning the left side of the bed his his). When T'baran has company for the night he mournfully retreats to Bolleth and gives T'baran a hard time the next morning.
Information about T'baran's dragon
Dragon Name: Bolleth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: A moderately sized baby-blue dragon. He could be considered a handsome fellow. Bolleth is in constant movement, always flicking his tail (even when asleep) or following the action with his head. He'll reposition himself three or four times throughout the night.
Personality: Curious for curiosity's sake is this dragon's motto. He wants to know and see what's goiong on, even though ''human things'' always end up putting him to sleep (his draconic memory is no good either). He likes to do things, he doesn't not like doing things, but he'd be rather doing than not doing.
Weyr of Origin: Igen
Abilites and weaknesses: He is /sure/ he's a search dragon, even though his record for candidates he's searched to impressed is zero. Still, he insists.
