Awards
Crayon Awards: Most Intriguing Female Persona (March 2013)

Physical Description of Persona:
Catrien is tiny, under 5 foot in height, and slender to boot. She has a boyish figure and a very small, delicate face. Her blond hair is cropped short and, with her large blue eyes, makes her look much more innocent than she is. She would be quite beautiful if she didnít scowl all the time.

Emotional Description of Persona:
She was born tomboyish and has remained so all her young life. All her best friends growing up have been gay boys and she counts herself as their protector and confidant. At this moment in her life, she is focused on only one thing, and that is to Impress. Falling in love and other such childish things are beneath (more like beyond) her, or so she thinks.

History of Persona:
Catrien was born to a tough-as-nails greenrider, the youngest of three girls. Both of her sisters have Impressed, one of which is still at Dragonsfall, the other girl moving in with her weyrmate over at Riverís Buff two turns ago. She had an un-enventful childhood, hanging out with her three best friends, Kadara, Sevin and Galwen. When they were all 12 Kadara Impressed but lost her dragon and suicided and, over the turns, several others in their group were killed by threads or Weyrling accidents until, at the present, itís just the three of them left.

Catís mother was made a wingthird nine turns ago, which makes it a bit shameful for Catrien that she has not Impressed yet as, in her motherís eyes, she fully expects her daughters to follow in her footsteps and rise to become leaders in their Weyrs.

Until recently she worked in the kitchens doing menial jobs. Being the only one left of her peer group not to have Impressed did weight heavily on her, more than she would admit to her friends. But all that changed once little Oranth saw her!

Dragon's Name: Oranth
Dragon's Age: 2
Dragon's Colour: Green
Next Mating Flight: m1 d21
Description of Dragon:
Oranth is tiny, even for a green. She's as dainty as she is small, a perfect compliment to her likewise tiny rider. Her eyes are huge and doe-like and her face is dished and ends in a tiny muzzle, like that of a deer. All her proportions are delicate and give the impression of fragility.

Her colour is a pale sage green, almost frosted looking or like that of a roan runner beast. Her legs, head and wingsails along the bone structure are a deeper sage whilst her back fades to a pale frosted sage.

She's going to be a rather serious little dragon (if dragons wore glasses and sat in the library all day, she would be that one)
