Physical Description of Persona:
At first glance there would be nothing particularly unusual about M'galec. His ears are a bit big and his forehead broad. M'galec's nose
is high bridged, his eyes wide-set, and his hair, neatly swept to the side, is a non-descipt brown touched with grey. He is neither ugly nor strikingly handsome. What draws people to him is his clear blue eyes that snap with intellengence and leave people thinking that he knows a bit more than they know. This is further supported in the way he carries himself. He seems to walk with the confident stride of one who is in complete control of the world around him and within. No movements seem to be random or clumsy so much that even when he swats at a fly, it seems to be a trained and skilled motion. This rule also applies to M'galec's
rich voice, which seems to command attention even when talking about the most mundane matters.

Emotional Description of Persona:
M'galec is in control. He might not be in charge, but there is little doubt that he is in control. It was his steady confidence under pressure
that has made him an excellent surgeon. He is at all times the picture of calm, even when angry or excited.

He also has an aura of intellegence that eminates from him. His eyes seem to drink everything in, analyze it, and find it to be of no surprise. Very little seems to catch him off his guard, for guarded he is - his inner most thoughts are his own. His quick sense of humor is dry, sarcastic, and whitty, and he has very little patience for what he considers "childish" humor. It only proves a person's ignorance if fart jokes are the best they can do. He much prefers double meaning and inuendo.

Though he was raised outside the Weyr, M'galec has a lot of respect for many women crafers, especially healers. However, he has maintained strict measures for what makes a woman into a lady, and if a woman is not a lady they are only good for one thing.

History of Persona:
Mahgalec was the only son born to a Holder and his wife. He was doted on by his parents and older sisters. They were not a high born family, but
many would mistake the youngster as being the son of someone important in his polite manners and knowlegeable conversation. He drank in his studies and took more pleasure in having debates and meaningful conversations with adults than he did with boys his own age. He developed a profound sense of duty to his Hold and Lord and a deep
affection for his fellow Holders. His family was proud when he announced that he decided that he could best serve the people of the Hold by
learning to be a Healer and one day curing their aches and pains.

Mahgalec had studied at the Healer Hall for three turns before he was found on Search at the age of 15. He felt it was his duty to stand as a
Candidate, but his true love was Healing. That is, until a little bronze dragonet found him on the sands.

M'galec continued his studies in Healing after graduating Weyrlinghood. Since fighting Thread was no longer the main occupation for a dragonrider, the bronzerider threw himself into studying surgery and had his sights set on gaining his mastery.

The return of Thread spoiled those plans as he and Dwarkanath took to the skies. After fighting a Fall of Thread, M'galec often found himself
spending candlemarks in the infirmary, helping to patch up injured riders. His ablility to stay calm and focused despite the pressure and fatigue made him particularly suited to battlefield surgery. He began to wonder if it might not be better for him to stay on the ground during Threadfall. Finally, he asked for a transfer to River Bluff Weyr to
serve as a Weyrlingmaster Second, both to teach weyrlings how to ply their new craft and to have the freedom to practice his own.

Soon after arriving at River Bluff, he found a woman who seemed perfectly suited to him, the Weyrwoman Second, Lenala. After a quick whirlwind romance he moved into the golderider rooms as her weyrmate.

Dragon's Name: Dwarkanath
Dragon's Age: 33
Dragon's Colour: Bronze
Description of Dragon:
Dwarkanath is on the larger size for a bronze and
enjoys sunning himself so he can admire and be admired. He has proven very patient when dealing with weyrlings and can calm his rider down
when their antics prove too much of an annoyance.
