Writer: Heather

Name: K'lvin
Age: 48
Birthday: m13 d25
Rank: Wingrider, Lightning Wing
Location: Dolphin Cove Weyr
Craft: Dragonhealer
Craft Rank: Senior Journeyman

Physical Description of Persona:
K'lvin is six foot one and weighs just over two hundred pounds. The bronzerider has a broad set of shoulders and a frame that has thickened with age. Every bit of it is kept in shape, however. You'll not find an ounce of fat on this dragonrider's body. He has dark auburn hair, shoulder length that he usually wears down, and pale green eyes. K'lvin's face is square with a defined jawline. A neatly trimmed goatee usually adorns his chin, giving him a more distinguished air. Despite having been a draognrider for several Turns, K'lvin has no major scars to speak of other than a few flecks along his arms from ash burns.

Emotional Description of Persona:
K'lvin is a reformed bed hopper who’s slowly returning to his old ways. The ending of a long term relationship has not soured or depressed the man; he simply sees it as another stage. He likes small gatherings of friends. He's a devoted rider and reliable in the wings. K'lvin is fairly frank and to the point and has often been accused of being blunt- he doesn't mind though, he often likes the stunned expression people get on their faces when he speaks.

History of Persona:
K'lvin was born in the Weyrhold, to dragonrider parents. He was expected to impress and did not disappoint them. At thirteen he impressed his bronze Xmrenth. Without thread K'lvin found himself with time on his hands after weyrling training and chose to train as a healer. The craft suited both himself and his dragon. It also lead to a long term, relationship with a fellow healer, Cylena. K'lvin curtailed his bed hopping habits drastically, reserving his other liaisons for flights. Early in turn three Cylena approached K'lvin and expressed her opinion that her goals had changed and the fact the K'lvin’s had not. The bronzerider accepted her decision to leave, and to prove that there where no hard feelings, helped her move away from Dragonsfall. For a while after Cylena left K'lvin was sure that she would wish to return, but that was to never happen. Nine months after she left, Cylena sent a message to K'lvin that she wished to see him. And when he arrived it was to find that Cylena had born him a daughter.

Fast forward 8 Turns and K'lvin has made the decision to transfer to River Bluff Weyr, but he is not traveling alone. An ailing Cylena, by some stroke of fortune for K'lvin, agreed to let their daughter move with K'lvin to River Bluff Weyr.

While at River Bluff K'lvin met and fell in love with a woman much younger than he, Bahji. She was a blind weaver student who he found entrancing and more importantly, she loved him in return in a way that Cylena never had. Together Bahji and K'lvin had one daughter, Kaliha before the tsunami that destroyed River Bluff also claimed Bahji's life in a cave-in.

K'lvin and his two daughters moved to Dolphin Cove after the close of River Bluff. Not long after his move to Dolphin Cove K'lvin suffered a heart attack that left lasting nerve damage, preventing him from being able to fly Threadfall.

Dragon's Name: Xmrenth

Description of Dragon:
Xmrenth is a dark, honey colored bronze with hints of a chocolatey brown beneath his wings and tail. Although only mid-sized for a bronze, Xmrenth is proportioned beautiful with a compact body build and musculature. The bronze is just as blunt as his dragonrider, but may harbor a better sense of humor.
