Persona Profile: R'taran



Name: R'taran
Age: 26
Birthday: m8 d18
Rank: Wingrider, Hurricane Wing
Location: Dolphin Cove Weyr

Physical Description of Persona:
R'taran is a ruggedly handsome man - or would be if the superior expression ever came off his face. He spends much of his time outdoors, so his already dark skin has gotten that much darker. His eyes are steel grey and his hair auburn, which he wears past his shoulders and tied back with a leather thong. His hands are calloused from turns of working out of doors. He's several inches over six feet tall and has a sturdy build.

Emotional Description of Persona:
R'taran is a Southern man and that's all there is to it. He is firmly convinced of a woman's place in life and refuses to think otherwise. He follows orders without question, and always insists on following rules. Tradition plays a big part in his life. "Change" just isn't a word that's a part of his vocabulary. Hardworking and ambitious, he has exacting standards for both himself and others. He can act very superior at times, borderline of being snobbish. To most, he's very cold and standoff-ish, warming to very few.

History of Persona:
Born near Emerald Falls in a mid-sized holding, as the second eldest son. All were expected to contribute to life in the hold, even the women (but only tasks deemed suitable to them). He wasn't raised in a particularly happy home, but it was a busy one. He tried his best to follow in his father's footsteps, working harder than anyone else around. He, of course, was properly aghast when two of his cousins - one of them male - Impressed greens at Dolphin's Cove. To his further horror, he was Searched also, and an obscure honor code that he and his father both share required him to go - albeit reluctantly.

Dragon's Name: Qharterioth
Dragon's Age: 8
Dragon's Colour: Brown
Description of Dragon:
Good sized, with uniform dark brown hide, lightening only slightly at his underbelly, Qharterioth mirrors his rider's pride and fastidiousness. Far more flexible and patient than R'taran, he tempers his rider in a positive way while evidencing the same ambitious nature. Being of a more social cant, he consistently encourages his rider to be more approachable, particularly to female green riders.
