Crayon Awards: Favorite Male Persona (September 2015)

Physical Description of Persona:
He is five foot five inches right now, but it's obvious he hasn't hit his full growth spurt. Rohagelen is still growing, though he won't be a big man by any means. The youth is wiry, not bulky. His skin is a normal tawny color, thanks to the southern sun, but his short curls are a mix of brown with slight tinges of red on the edges.

Most of his body hints to a slender frame. His chin is slightly rounded and so are his other features. His eyes are a little more oval than normal, but it isn't obvious. Those eyes are brown, albeit a lighter shade.

Now that he's a rider, he's usually in dark riding leathers when flying though he favors earth tones otherwise. Trousers and tunics are staples, with vests, shirts, and sweaters thrown in occasionally.

Emotional Description of Persona:
On the outside he's just a simple country boy trying to make good. He's quiet and observes everything. He wants to make his family proud, but is unsure about living in a Weyr. On the inside, he's the eldest who is used to protecting his siblings. He works hard.

Rohagelen is afraid of failure. He may second guess himself because of that. He might also make the wrong choices, only to regret it later. Family is important to him.

History of Persona:
He is the son of Arohin and Syngel. His father was a farmcrafter and his mother was a farmer's wife. The two of them worked on the family's cothold along with some of his brothers and sisters. Rohagelen is the eldest of the five children and was recently sent to learn the vintnercraft at the Hall at Amber Hills.

The boy hadn't been outside of his cothold much so it was a new world for him. After learning about his famous Aunt, he was Searched for Dragonsfall Weyr. Nervous about his parents' reaction, Rohagelen had left his crafting behind to be a candidate. And apparently not for a long time since he Impressed bronze at his first Hatching-proving that there is indeed good Rider Blood in his Line. Walking off the Sands with Iroth at his side, he still doesn't know what he did right and is trying to figure it out.

Officially, weyrlinghood is over. However, he is too young to enter the wings so the Weyrlingmaster has decided to use the boy as an assistant until he's seasoned enough.

Dragon's Name: Iroth
Dragon's Age: 1
Dragon's Colour: Bronze
Description of Dragon:
At present this dragon is quite sturdy. Seriously, he's compact and muscled and has just reached his full growth which is normal-sized for a bronze. In temperament, he is neither imperious nor arrogant-he simply just tells it like it is because he has the strength to back up the orders he gives and someday he will have the experience to demand the respect he deserves.

His hide right now is undeniably bronze, but it has different shades. At first glance it appears a shiny molten light bronze, but there are darker tinges around his forelimbs and on his belly.
