Name Pronounced: Ve-drick
Appearance: V'dryk is both a seasoned Dragonrider and a well-experienced Journeyman Dragonhealer. His flesh is a crisp red-bronze color, thanks to the Arolos weather. His hair is a blend of color, but primarily it is a light brown; there are streaks of near-blonde hair and darker strands of reddish-brown hair nearer his neck, where the hair has been shaved. His eyes are a deep blend of green color, a mix between an olive green and a forest green. He is a rather overwhelming man at first sight, standing at a full six-foot-two and weighing close to two-hundred-thirty pounds. His square-shaped head leads to a neck that branches out into a pair of broad-shoulders and an equally broad chest. He's not comprised all of muscle, he's just a naturally large man. Despite his 'bodybuilder' appearance, strength is not his primary skill--it is his charisma and his wisdom that takes the lead in this man.
Personality: He is a diligent worker, and though he disapproves of those that fool around and slack off of their duties, he leaves their decisions to them and silently wishes a harsh reprimanding. He is naturally calm and not so easily angered; he has never snapped nor barked at a person for something right off, he usually must be antagonized for quite some time before he will get even slightly angered.
History: Vanddryk was Craftborn, born within the Harper Hall at Fort Hold to Journeyman Harper Vandel and his drudge wife Dryka. He was the first born of twin boys. His brother Vanddrel was born second. Both boys survived and thrived. Their mother, Dryka, completely exhausted herself giving birth to them, but she lived as well.
Information about V'dryk's pets
Pet Name: Tuvix
Pet Type: Brown firelizard
Appearance: Tuvix is the color of klah and is not overly large for a brown. In fact, Tuvix is average everything. The poor male is so non-descript that he just doesn't stand out in anything. He is clutch brother of V'dryk's blue flit Andori.
Personality: Tuvix could be considered the nerd of the flit world. Female flits don't take him seriously. Other brown flits seem to ignore Tuvix. Tuvix just contents himself with being a gopher for his pet, V'dryk. V'dryk and his blue dragon Damyrth along with clutch brother blue Andori are Tuvix's whole world.
Second Pet Name: Andori
Pet Type: Blue firelizard
Appearance: Almost as large as his brown clutch brother, Tuvix, Andori is a sapphire blue with a lighter blue belly. Where Tuvix would be the nerd, Andori is the jock of the flit world.
Personality: Andori is a little more self-centered than Tuvix, but adores his pet, his pet's blue dragon and his clutch brother. Andori also protects Tuvix when he needs to.
Third Pet Name: Velkin
Pet Type: Bronze Callamere Wher
Appearance: Velkin's color is beautiful creamy shade of medium bronze that gleams in the light especially when he has been freshly oiled. Velkin's wingflaps are the same color, but darken to a deep bronze by even shades to the edges of his wingflaps. Just a little bit on the large side for even a bronze Callamere, he is a credit to his breeders.
Personality: Velkin has been raised not only by V'dryk, but also V'dryk's other three draconics, being blue dragon Damyrth and V'dryk's two grown flit clutchbrothers blue Andori and brown Tuvix. Velkin appears calmer and a little more intelligent than his wher peers, but if his pet V'dryk or even his flit father's are threatened, Velkin can be a force to be reckoned with. Dragonhealer V'dryk has already found Velkin helpful in his treatment of belligerent whers. With some, Velkin can have a calming effect. Where more cocky, violent male whers are concerned, Velkin seems to know how to use his bronze strength and superiority even from a wher standpoint. His wher baby-talk will also quiet and calm some patients and their owners. He is a male though and can be expected to chase a female wher on her mating run when he is old enough. This is one wher that knows that flits are friends, not food.
Information about V'dryk's dragon
Dragon Name: Damyrth
Wing (Weyrling Group): CloudDancers
Appearance: Damyrth is a fine sky-blue coloured dragon, with a unique splotch of darker, royal blue on his back and fanning out to cover the base of his wings, like paint had literally been dropped directly onto him. He has two Threadscore marks: one on his snout and one on the calf of his right hindleg.
Personality: Damyrth is well-matched with his rider. He is intolerant of slackers and wise-cracking pranksters, though he is more verbal about it than his rider is. He isn't a free-chaser as some males are, chasing after whatever green rises...usually, he'll pick a green and stay with her until another dragon catches her or she dies. He is strong on committment. Outside of the rush of the mating flight, Damyrth likes to engage in polite conversation with the greens, rather than flattering them to no end.
Weyr of Origin: Fort
Abilites and weaknesses: Damyrth is an excellent flyer. He learns well from his mistakes in flight and 'Fall alike, and has mastered several flying techniques than he can use to his direct advantage.
