Persona Profile: C'dinin
Birthday: m7 d5
Rank: Wingrider, Rapids Wing
Location: River Bluff Weyr
Craft Rank: Senior Journeyman
Physical Description of Persona:
Not a particularly tall man, C'dinin makes up for his lack of height with his breadth. Broad shoulders, a stocky build and an impressive set of muscles are what everyone notices first about him. Dark brown eyes and sandy brown hair accompany a rather weathered complexion, his face creased with laughter lines and his hair starting to turn white - not grey - at the temples.
Emotional Description of Persona:
In spite of having such a powerful build, C'dinin is not much of an outdoors person, preferring to spend his time with old hides and instruments - and even occasionally trying his hand at composing the odd tune or two. His ready laugh and easygoing nature mean he is never short of companionship, although he is wary of letting anyone too close - he has been hurt once too often in the past.
History of Persona:
Born at Far Island Weyr, he spent an unremarkable childhood growing up as a weyrbrat, son of a fostermother and a journeyman harper. Although his father died of a wasting disease when Caidinin was still quite young, the man still succeeding in passing on his love of harpering to his son. Caidinin apprenticed to the craft as soon as he was old enough, but continued to stand as a candidate even though he thought he'd never impress, especially since he had a complete lack of dragonriders in his family.
This assumption was proved to be unfounded when he attended a Hatching not long after being promoted to senior apprentice. Having become used to being passed over, he was considerably surprised when a blue dragonet chose him after examining just about every eligible boy in the cavern. But then, Terebinth always was picky.
C'dinin, as he became, threw himself into being a dragonrider with the same enthusiasm as he showed for harpering, and although his craft had to take second place from then on, he still found occasion to practice it.. as often as he could manage.
He never thought that he would want leave Far Island, but an ongoing relationship with a greenrider that turned sour changed his mind. Deeply wounded emotionally, he requested and received a transfer to River Bluff weyr.

Description of Dragon:
Terebinth is picky about everything, from the fit of his riding straps to which greens he chooses to chase. An even deep blue, with odd swirls of lighter shades on the undersides of his wings and around his eyes, he considers himself to be very handsome, and never misses an opportunity to preen and pose.
