Name Pronounced: Tuh-lack
Appearance: One phrase: Best looking guy in the Weyr. (See I even put it on his persona sheet so nyeh) OR as K'dar puts it "The most gorgeous stunning piece of man flesh this side of between... and in between too if you get my drift... ooo baby..." ; ) He has dark black short hair and green eyes. He is tall, well over 6 feet. He has a nicely tanned complexion that covers his slender, but very well muscled body. He's the type of person that makes most people, whether they find men attractive or not, pause for a minute to stare before continuing on their way, or not... as the case may be.
Personality: T'lack is a nice guy, but he can be a bit reserved at times. He's far more likely to be found spending time with Renth, K'dar, or his son then scouting the Weyr for new friends. But he is very loyal and loving the friends that he does have. (He has a surprisingly complex personality that craves a level of commitment most people would shy from. He has an artists eye for beauty and appreciation of subtleties and yet respects practical physicality and individual control and sense of self, says Vicky *winks*) He's also the type of person who knows that he looks good, but personally couldn't care less. For the most part he thinks that it was wasted on him, it being one of the things that he would never wield against people.
History: Born to Fort Weyr. He was the son of a drudge and a brown rider. He led a pretty normal life at the weyr, his parents both making the effort to raise him as best they could in between work, drills, and Fighting Thread. Finally, though, they realized that they could not properly raise him and sent him to Fort Hold to be raised. His mother took him for a time and raised him there in the relative safety of the Hold, figuring that he would be much better taken care of there than the Weyr.
Information about T'lack's pets
Pet Name: Cident
Pet Type: Blue Wher
Appearance: Cident is not an overly large blue wher considering his non-Callamere parentage but neither is he tiny either. He's a mostly light colored blue wher, his body is almost uniformly the color of a clear blue sky. The exceptions are his wings and tail tip which are a sharply contrasting almost royal blue and small spots of the same color blanketing his hide end.
Personality: Cident, not having the advantage of being of Callamere breeding, is not nearly as sociable as a Callamere. He's been trained well but T'lack must continuously reinforce the wher's training or he could easily become harder to control. He is quite possessive and when first being introduced to T'lack's potential love interests, or even just close friends wanting a hug, he needs strong reminders that it's not appropriate to try and force his way physically between T'lack and the other person. He doesn't usually get aggressive per se in such circumstances but even without being overtly aggressive a wher trying to force his body between T'lack and the other person can cause possible injuries.
Information about T'lack's dragon
Dragon Name: Renth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Renth is small. No other way to put it. She's small, and petite, quite a contrast to T'lack. She's so small that to people who don't know that dragons can carry about anything they want it appears that she'll never be able to lift T'lack's big weight. She has a light green stomach that gradually gets darker until you get to almost a hunter green when you get to the tip of her wings.
Personality: She's a happy little green, a bit hyperactive at times, but also just as content to curl up in a nice sunny space and soak up sun. Her personality is still developing, but she seems to be a very willing to talk to complete strangers should the opportunity present itself.
