Physical Description of Persona:
Rhosyn cuts an average figure. At 5'3", she isn't tall. Never thin, she doesn't look quite heavy either. Not much about her stands out. Preferring to wear long hair, she plaits it. It's a copper color, pretty in the sunlight.
Usually seen in dark riding leathers and costumes, she doesn't set out to attract attention. Her features are a bit on the rounder side. Her hazel eyes are slightly slanted for a felinic look, but her cheeks are filled out. Her nose isn't too overly large. She does have plump lips though.
Emotional Description of Persona:
To make up for her lack of looks, Rhosyn is loud. This Weyrwoman has no shame and will call someone out when she thinks it is necessary. Boisterous to a fault, she has been called mannerless.
Sometimes she makes a noticeable effort to curb her outgoing nature, but it's hard to fight one's nature. On the other side of her is a woman who loves to laugh. She appreciates everything she has and will stubbornly hang onto it.
Determined to live her life on her terms, she is a force to be reckoned with once she has made up her mind.
History of Persona:
She was the fourth child in a family of eight. They lived in a cothold beholden to Baili Hold. Everyone worked together to eke out an existence that usually ended up in nights spent drinking and dancing before the hard work of farming the next day.
As such, Rhosyn grew up with the boys while her two sisters followed their mother. She wasn't afraid to get dirty or catch tunnelsnakes. She adored runners and would ride off any chance she got.
It was one of those days when she was riding with her older brother that the worst happened-they came home to find their father had passed away in his sleep. Her mother tried her best to keep it together, but had to foster some of her children.
Rhosyn was sent to Vista Point Weyr. Life in a Weyr was very different, but she managed. She proved herself to be a survivor. When a gold egg was laid, one of the male candidates bet her that she'd never Stand. She wasn't rider material. Taking that bet, she became a weyrwoman at 14 turns, much to everyone's shock including her own.
With Orlaith, she managed to get through weyrling training and enter the wings. She quickly managed to alienate the Weyrwoman and alot of the rest of the Weyr with her brash attitudes. Given over to one of the old ones, she learned how to act proper. However, it never quite fit her.
After so many turns at Vista Point, she took a chance when someone said there was an opportunity at River Bluff. Jumping to get out from underneath the Weyrwoman's nails, Rhosyn and Orlaith went to River Bluff. K'sedel's Nikornath has managed to catch the gold so far. They've had two successful clutches and Rhosyn has settled into her Weyr.
Unfortunately for her, she's decided she is in love with N'vanik, the Dolphin Cove Weyrleader. She has also managed to spawn rumors around the South that she's a very loose woman-some have even called her the Whorewoman. Despite her reputation, Rhosyn has remained at River Bluff, and seems to be a stable influence for the Weyr despite her interesting mannerisms. Recently, she welcomed her first child into the world-a daughter.

Dragon's Name: Orlaith
Dragon's Age: 20
Dragon's Colour: Gold
Description of Dragon:
To match her rider, Orlaith is a very courageous gold. She isn't afraid to take on anything and would be comfortable leading a Queen's Wing and running a Weyr in every aspect.
A pale gold that almost looks white, but isn't just, Orlaith will catch anyone's eye. She is large to fit Rhosyn's small.
