Name Pronounced: teh-RAY
Appearance: T'erey is 6'3 and has finally filled out, though he is by no means muscular, retaining a rather lean look from his youth. His luxurious head of wavy dark auburn hair is often unkempt, lending him a rakish appearance, while his brown eyes tend to soften the look and make him seem more serious. He has a scar on his left leg from a deep threadscore. He was scored nearly to the bone and it didn't heal cleanly, giving him a deep pucker.
Personality: T'erey is something of a loner and doesn't warm up quickly to people. The one exception to this is his baby sister, Trissa. T'eray adores his baby sister and would do almost anything for her. If he ever hears that she is in trouble or hurt, he will break all rules to help her. Not even Faranth would be able to help the one that brought her to harm.
History: Tinderrey is the oldest child of 4. his mother and father are both healers. His father Drashon is journeyman, while his mother Timmara is a senior apprentice. She chose to leave with her journeyman love when he was assigned to a small hold west of Benden.
Information about T'erey's pets
Pet Name: Drummer
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Drummer is small for a brown, being closer to the size of a blue. This means he is less apt to fly a green (and almost no chance of flying a gold), but is more agile.
Personality: Drummer is hatched at Healer Hall in Fort. From the very start, he begins to imitate the drums he hears from the Harper Hall, so gains his name.
Information about T'erey's dragon
Dragon Name: Marenalth
Wing (Weyrling Group): Direflame
Appearance: Marenalth is the brown of a rich cherry wood, with warm reddish brown highlights in the sun. This is more pronounced on the wingsails. His claws up to about halfway up the leg to the second joint, about a flit-length of his tail tip, his snout and knobs are a shade darker. Marenalth is no stranger to the pain of a threadscore, having had several tangles with the deadly stuff. He sports a criss-cross of scars on his right foreleg and a long meandering pair of scars on the left flank.
Personality: Marenalth is generally a quiet, thoughtful, observant dragon. He is good at keeping track of draconic relationships around the weyr, as well as any hints of rider-dragon relations. If he learns of something bothering a dragon's rider, he remembers. He keeps this information to himself, though, unless it seems to be needed in relation to dragonhealing. This sometimes means relevant information doesn't get passed on, as Marenalth doesn't always see the relevance or the potential benefit of informing his rider.
Weyr of Origin: Benden
Abilites and weaknesses: He is a large brown: not the largest, but close. He is a bulky, muscular dragon. His wings seem a tad short for his size, but as with the rest of him, they sport huge muscles attaching them to his body. This gives him great strength for quick launches but that bulk comes at the price of agility and speed. The muscle also gives him a greater need for meat than the average dragon his size.
