Name Pronounced: Taly-aye
Appearance: Growing up to be a rather petite woman, Talyai stands only 5'6”. Working with runners and more recent turns of being a dragonrider have developed her body into a tightly shaped and lightly muscled form. Her legs and arms are well defined thanks to her fondness of running. Her bust is about a C-cup, an ample size for her shape without making her look top heavy. Being so small certainly gives her the impression of being delicate but Talyai grew up treated no different then if she was her father's son. She has no issues with getting her hands dirty and doing some rather physical work.
Personality: Confident and very much a free spirit, Talyai is much like the unbroken runners her family trained. She isn't one to ever ask for help, preferring to take care of things on her own. She's a friendly person who can get along with nearly anyone. People who especially catch her eye can expect some flirting. Headstrong in her goals, Talyai pursues her lusts (certainly not love) full on. When necessary she will use her beauty to her advantage. More often it's just for the purpose of entertainment when she isn't involved with her duties. She would rather be outside flying with her dragon or riding her runner then anything else. Being cooped up inside too much makes her rather uncomfortable.
History: Born Pre-pass -02.04.16
Information about Talyai's pets
Pet Name: Rampage Runner "Rampage"
Pet Type: Brown Firelizard
Appearance: Called Rampage for short, this firelizard is very strongly muscled and has a rather stocky looking build. His tail looks a little bit longer then what would be fitting for his body making him around 18 inches long. His hide is a deep shade of chocolate that only darkens slightly on his head, traveling down his spine to the tip of his tail. The Arolos colors are branded on his right foreleg as a mark that he belongs at the southern Weyr.
Personality: Stoic is the best way to describe Rampage. He's a very steady and reliable firelizard who seems indifferent to much of the world around him. The brown holds his head high with pride in knowing he's done a good job for his owner. He is a well trained messenger and rather quiet as far as flits go. Only low croons are reserved for Talyai as is his happy affectionate side. He is an absolute sweetheart and much in her hands. Rampage really isn't very social and rarely chases after greens. He prefers the quiet company of other flits like himself though usually he tends to be a loner and sticks by Taly's side. Being a very intelligent firelizard there isn't much that bothers him. Dragons, runners and other creatures are nothing to fear and he tolerates them well having grown up around such large beasts.
Second Pet Name: Scoffyld "Scoff"
Pet Type: Blue Firelizard
Appearance: As a hatching Scoff appears lanky with a bit of a rounded head he has yet to grow into. Dark blue lines crisscross his sky hued body building imaginary blue prints for an unknown structure. Not that he'll hold still enough but staring at his markings for long, pathways seem to appear in the random dark lines. His leg muscles will be well developed like he was built for running yet flying is where he excels. Quick dips and dives are natural choices in the sky making him a great contender in any chase or race.
Personality: Scoffyld is a flit of great thought. Every action seems to have a well planned out attack to leave nothing to surprise. He's an expert at squeezing out of tight spaces and difficult situations. Confidence fills this firelizard and makes him seem almost stoic yet his affection only reveals itself for Talyai. His mind voice is deeper then expected from a flit as are his chitters and croons. His loyalty lies with his older brown brother, Rampage who he looks up to and seems to follow quite often and mimics the older flit's mannerisms. In any setting, Scoff surveys his surroundings taking in every possible detail, noting exits and escape routes. He's a reliable messenger yet very cautious around strangers quick to drop off his message and return to Talyai's side. Scoff blends into the background often times making himself appear forgotten to those around him. He is fiercely protective of Taly often snapping and hissing at strangers.
Third Pet Name: Kadense
Pet Type: Runner
Appearance: A relatively short Terran-like Appaloosa, Kadense is a deep chocolate brown with white hind hocks. His hind quarters are white with dark brown and almost black spots. His mane and tail are a dark brown like the rest of his body. Over all he's well muscled from a good bloodline and turns of training.
Personality: Kadense is the definition of well trained. He'll follow obediently like a dog without a lead and respond to the slightest gesture. The runner does have a soft side for Talyai, remembering that she was the one who spoiled him as a colt. He will not follow directions by anyone except Taly and one other care taker. He tends to be quite aggressive and problematic to strangers.
Information about Talyai's dragon
Dragon Name: Kawaleth
Age: 7 Turns
Wing (Weyrling Group): WeyrlingMasters
Appearance: Cloaked Goblet Egg
Personality: Some dragons are quiet and unobtrusive. Some dragons are loud, obnoxious, and rude. Kawaleth is the former, or at least she is (most of the time) when she is not sleeping. When she hatches she will slowly start chipping away at her shell until finally she loses patience and bursts forth out of her egg and starts jabbering away to anyone who will listen her emotionless comments about how pathetic the other hatchling dragons and their Lifemates are. After all none of the other hatchling dragons got to Impress _her_ Lifemate and she'll remark that they don't get to be fed and oiled the same way. And those shinies and toys that Kawaleth threw a temper tantrum to get? None of the other dragons had those either, and shards if she was going to share them.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Speed and agility are Kawaleth's greatest assets yet her stamina leaves her mating flights and thread fighting quite short.
