After her late growth spurt, Rin is no longer a fairly short person. She is still a little shorter than Pernese average. She is an active individual, which leads to a healthy appetite at every meal. She is often described as 'hearty and hale', with strength aplenty and power just waiting to be developed. Nothing about her is 'dainty', which she finds just fine. 'Dainty', as far as she is concerned, is a twisted ankle and embroidery for days. Sturdy is a scraped up knee and a meatroll in her bag for dinner. Said bag is one of her apprentice accomplishments - a demonstration of her understanding leather seams. That's her story, and she's sticking to it.

Some call her a wild child, but the truth is that Rin is very active. She doesn't like to be cooped up, and she does not like repetitive, meaningless tasks. Her skirts are meant to be worn to the ankles, with up to three layers of petticoat beneath. Rin wears them without a single underlayer, and kilts them up in her definitely-not-part-of-the-outfit belt. This exposes her tall boots, which were finally agreed upon in order to protect her legs better than even proper trousers would. Her sleeves were originally all full and wrist-length, but after tattering them enough times, she was allowed to trim them to her elbows.

Her thick auburn hair is, by all rights, supposed to be in a neat and tidy braid every morning. But that takes time, and effort, so Rin frequently has knots and tangles in her hair. She ties it back with a thick ribbon , which...well, it mostly works. No doubt she would be happier if she were to cut her hair, but no one has suggested it and she hasn't thought of it yet.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Go ahead and make all the jokes. Rin has heard them all before - Rinzable sounds too forsking close to 'Miserable' and 'Warble' and 'Rinse able', which is why Rin goes by the first syllable of her name only. She is determined to be seen on her own merit, not the misguided attempts at parental naming, and so she goes to great lengths to hide her full name from the world. This has made her sneaky in various ways. She often requires her peers to complete certain tasks, such as beating her in a foot race, or finishing chores faster than her - before she tells them even her nickname.

Despite her roguish mannerism - Rin is nothing if not a tomboy, and she will succeed in anything she puts her mind to - Rin is surprisingly kind. She doesn't feel the need to be a jerk to prove a point. No, her actions will speak for themselves. In that, she is very truthful. Nothing will stop her from speaking her mind, particularly not if she's right, or should be. She's crafty, but she's not stupid. And she is endlessly curious, the kind that leads to the death of ignorance. Rin does not stop pursuing a course of action until her questions dry up and her inquisitive nature is sated.

And of course, no personality assessment of Rin would be complete without mentioning her persuasion. Rin is charismatic, and she has a tendency to create full plans at a moment's notice. Since people are more likely to follow someone with a plan, Rin rarely lacks for minions. She has a slight tendency to become bossy because of this, but her twin brother easily corrects her.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Father -Zabian, Master Smith
Mother Rinnaele, Master Starcrafter
Twin brother - Zable
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Nope
BIRTHPLACE: Telgar Hold
HISTORY:

The twins were born to a starcrafter and a smith. Rin emerged first, and has been running ahead ever since. She was always the more active twin, her mother's headache, and her father's pride. No outing was ever complete without an extensive and frantic search for the twins. Rin dragged her brother everywhere. Most of the fights she got into were directly linked to Zable, and the way the youth of Telgar Hold found him an easy target for cruelty. Rin was very much of the opinion that she was the only one who could torment her brother, and took a dim view of anyone who tried to usurp her rank.

The time came, as it must for all, for the twins to be apprenticed into a craft. Rin found her niche as a tanner - something complicated enough to sate her fill in here.

Despite being apprenticed to two different crafts, the twins were not truly separated until Telgar Searched the smithcrafthall. Zab was taken away by the Search dragon, much to Rin's disappointment. For once, her twin was doing something...completely without her. Telgar was not inclined to Search the hold, but Igen did. Since Telgar Hold fell into both weyr's territories, it wasn't unusual to have separate Searches.

Rin was Searched two seasons later, by an Igen blue. She has two garnet clutches under her belt, and volunteered when candidates were requested for Semaca's clutch.

UPDATES
  • Late Spring 2766 - At the Defenders of Solus clutch in Semaca, Rin's late arrival to the Hollow is mitigated when she Impresses bronze Markeeth.
  • Summer 2766 - The chaos of the Defenders of Solus clutch does little to convince Zab to stick around. He transfers back to Telgar to stand for the clutch their.
  • Fall 2766 - Cave in! While roughhousing in the barracks, Rin and Unay of green Ekkunath managed to cave the roof in. Weyrlingmasters Kina and Naxen work to free the girls while Markeeth panicked. Something hit Run in the head, giving her a concussion. Despite an initial dim prognosis, given her disorientationm at the time, it's not so bad. Aside from a headache that lasts three days, dizziness, and a little bit of memory loss, Rin makes a full recovery.
  • Summer 2767 - Graduation brings the choice of wing assignment for the Sol weyrlings. For the first time in nearly a Turn, fast friends and sparring partners Rin and Unay choose differently. Rin goes to Mazurka, where she can explore and cause Semaca's most troublesome squad grief.

BASICS

NAME: Markeeth
BIRTHDATE Spring 2766
AGE: three as of Spring 2769


APPEARANCE
LENGTH: fifty feet
HEIGHT: twelve feet and six inches
WINGSPAN: seventy-five feet
COLOR: bronze
HEX CODE: #b8af7f
FULL APPEARANCE:

A large bronze, but rail-thin. No matter how he grows or how much he eats, he will always be a stick. Narrow body, long limbs and thin neck and face. Markeeth is all angles. Even his wingsails are thin and unfortunately have a risk of tearing if he does anything too fast and fancy. He is a bit fragile. He picks his legs up incredibly high when he walks, like he is strutting constantly. He always has his head held high. He is a pale bronze all over, with his wingsails darker on the back and undersides. His markings are elaborate circles and wiring, accented with a more yellowy bronze. His front feet are darker, like he has gloves, and his tail is very daintily colored.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Markeeth is a haughty, proud bronze. He is almost stereotypical. Only metallics are worthy, everyone else is useless. The exception is Eboeth, who is the one and only dragon he will ever listen to. He is too proud to ask for help, and respect must be earned, but again, only from other metallics. Those chromatics are just a disgrace to Pern. He would ideally like to just see metallics reign all over. He is a bit of an asshole about this. He can be quite eloquent and protective if it comes to it, as he is essentially a snooty butler in dragon form.

To his human, they must be at his standards, and his standards are high. He will throw a fit if someone does not conform to his expectations. He is a spoiled creature and will need someone to set him straight. He finds Isith to be distasteful, even though the other dragon could rather easily trounce him and feel no remorse. Markeeth enjoys needling and insulting others, and will sulk incredibly hard if he is ever called out or beaten in a fight. If he is given a purpose, he is quite focused and good at tasks he can actually put his mind to.

Voice: Markeeth's voice has an unusual accent, and a weird, almost metallic timbre to it.
