Persona Profile: A'vel
Birthday: m5 d12
Rank: Wingrider, Hurricane Wing
Location: Dolphin Cove Weyr
Craft Rank: Senior Apprentice
Physical Description of Persona:
Favelance is what his father calls a "late bloomer". All the girls are still taller than he, and his voice can't seem to go lower than a contra alto no matter how hard he tries. With his untameable blonde hair and large blue eyes, he looks like a little boy and he is starting to wonder if he always will.
Emotional Description of Persona:
Like many young boys, Favelance is a dreamer. He wants to do great things with his life - to be famous all over the Southern continent, maybe all over Pern! He dreams of growing tall and handsome, strong and brave! But part of him wonders if he has it in him to be any of those things.
As the smallest boy he had always been picked on, until he found his one great strength - the ability to make people laugh. Favelance found out early as his peers all started to get stronger and bigger than he that if he resisted them, they just picked on him harder. But if he could make them laugh, he could be part of the gang. This had become the young man's defense mechanism, whether faced with a bully or an instructer or one of life's problems - Favelance just finds a way to laugh it off,and hides what he is really feeling inside.
History of Persona:
He was born to a Sr. Journeyman harper and his wife at the Harper Hall. His father was destined for great things, and by the time Favelance was five turns old, his father was already a master composer. The young man felt forever identified as "Faveron's boy".
The young boy wanted nothing more than to get out from his father's shadow, but as his only son, it was expected that Favelance would follow in his father's rather imposeing footsteps. It was not even discussed or questioned when his harper classes finished that he be enrolled in the Hall as an apprentice.
But always he had dreamed of something more. There had to be something that he could do that was only _him_ and not his father, and not the other boys. He wants to be respected like his father, but he wants it to be for something all his own. Part of him always hoped that _maybe_ he could find that special something at the Weyr.
Favelance was never noticed by a Search dragon while he was at the Weyr, and when the Harper Hall returned to Emerald Falls he resigned himself to continuing under his father's shadow. But now in a twist of fate, a Search dragon has noticed him.
A'vel Impressed to green Tsogath his first time Standing. In response his parents cut him out of their lives. He threw himself into the studies and work of weyrlinghood in order to distract himself from the pain. He worked hard enough to attract the Weyrleader's attention and be placed in his wing after graduation, an honor A'vel is thrilled to receive.

Dragon's Age: 0
Dragon's Colour: Green
Next Mating Flight: m3 d23
Description of Dragon:
Tsogath is predominantly a bright green like new spring grass, but there are darker patterns on her muzzle and limbs that are like the banding of sun and shadow. Right now she has a very long tail and shorter wings. When she grows she will be on the smaller end of the size range, though her proportions will have averaged out.
Tsogath is a cheerful dragonet, very positive about the world around her and interested in others. She will have a tendency towards being a class clown to amuse other dragons and cheer her rider. She approaches the world with curiosity, but like many green dragons, her memory is not very good.
