Name Pronounced: Tar-ren
Appearance: Taerren has Blue-Black hair that ends brushing his collar and a fringe that just falls in his eyes that he has to occasionally brush away for him to see. He has slightly tanned skin, just enough to not get burned. His eyes are a bright azure blue especially when he is excited or determined about something. Taerren is just under the average height for his age, but will grow to be about average as he has not had his biggest growth spurt.
Personality: Taerren is a very loyal person, if you become his friend he will be there for them no matter what. He is generally a very friendly and talkative person once he has settled in but at first he may appear shy. Taerren likes helping people even if they are not his friends, he just tends to go a few extra lengths for his friends as in he is willing to get into to trouble to help his friends but will stop just short of that for others. Taerren is a very hard working person who likes to learn new things. He is the sort of person that always knows where he put something even if it’s been an hour and he left the room and he did something else in the meantime, but Taerren’s mind works well in what he calls organised chaos with different levels working at the same time. Taerren listens to others well although he can appear to not be listening at the same time and thus likes surprising new friends if they think he hasn’t been listening to them.
History: Taerren was born in Cliff Edge cothold not that far from Arolos Weyr so he often sees dragon's flying straight. Taerren's parents Arkadren and Toraea have two children Taerren and his older brother Drendred. Drendred nicknamed Taerren Taer when he started toddling as Taerren would tear about the place trying to follow his father. Arkadren often works with the animals around the area looking after the cothold's canines, felines and any runnerbeasts nearby and taught Taerren how to help heal them. Taer and his friends would often explore around the area and bring back wounded animals to get them help and to learn more. Once Taer realised that dragons could get hurt too he wanted to help them as well as ride them. Toraea made sure that both her children learnt how to read, write and do figures.
