Name Pronounced: van "a" pronounced as in fan
Appearance: As Vanyan nears age 20 turns, the cute boy is growing into a strong, intelligent, rugged, good looking man. Vanyan's hair is much darker brown-blond and his skin stays a nice bronze tan. Vanyan's deep hazel eyes are nicely set in a well-angled strong facial structure with a strong chin and high-cheekbones. He has a visible beard shadow.
Personality: Vanyan has always been a good kid and coming from a hard-working farmcraft family has insured that he had the upbringing to stay that way as he reaches the end of his teen years and is considered a man. Vanyan learned there were times for work, for tears, for love, and for laughter. He understands the differences. Vanyan had a mild mischief streak when he was much younger. Like any normal male, Vanyan enjoys a little fun and can even laugh at himself. Vanyan enjoys dancing and playing a guitar. He can sing, but will refuse unless he is alone or with just his family or in the bath by himself. Noone knows why and Vanyan isn't telling, but those who spy on him love his baritone voice.

Information about V'yan's pets
Pet Name: Toughy
Pet Type: brown Callamere firelizard
Appearance: Toughy's main body color is a milk chocolate brown with a small almost unnoticeable bit of dark chocolate color swirled in. He has a few of barely visible scars on his sides from too many rough games with canine Digger and chasing rising female flits.
Personality: Toughy is a tough, smart brown Callamere firelizard and Toughy wasn't the name Vanyan first gave the little brown when he hatched. It was when the still tiny brown flit challenged canine, Digger (now deceased), for his food for the first time. The tiny brown hatchling stood up to the canine with a great deal of hissing, growling, teeth snapping,and spread wings warning the canine to back off from the food. The confused canine backed off not sure what to do. Vanyan picked up the flit, he teasingly called him "Lil' Toughy" and the name stuck. Digger learned to just back away from his food especially as Toughy grew and got brave enough to nip the dog's nose. Poor Digger learned to back away until someone enticed Toughy with a more interesting morsel.
Information about V'yan's dragon
Dragon Name: Cleath
Wing (Weyrling Group): Skystrikers
Appearance: Cleath is small, striped, medium hued blue whose movements leaving a watcher's mind to think feline even though Cleath is a dragon from head to toe.
Personality: One would think that a quiet dragonet would equal a calm, well behaved dragonet. Cleath would be happy to prove them wrong. Though not a particularly wordy or even vocally loud dragon, Cleath's mind is always awhirl with some form of mischief. He will be the type to push things over just for the fun of it, flick mud on his classmates and hide objects belonging to others. Does he care about getting caught? Faranth no! And if apologies are needed, well, that's just one of the many things that lifemates are good for.
Weyr of Origin: Arolos
Abilites and weaknesses: Cleath's weaknesses would be his mischief and maybe not being as agile as his blue brothers. His abilities will be his ability to think quickly and his stronger stamina for a blue his size.
