Character Number: 1
Rank: Rider, Journeyman smith
Where they are from: Silence
Caexon looks weird for a number of reasons. He's about 6'2" and stick thin: the high metabolism of a young man hasn't faded out for him yet, but it promises to with age. He has little muscle mass- it's all awkward, lanky features that look a little too long for him. His hair he keeps short and otherwise ignores completely: it's usually messy and unkempt. It's a sandy brown color, bordering in dirty blonde, but just a shade dark. His skin would be a uniform creamy tan, except for an odd genetic condition known as Vitiligo. Patches of white skin patch him symmetrically, crawling unevenly up his body. He's especially careful in sun because of these— they increase with sunburns and stress or illness. At the moment, they're around his palms and wrists, feet and ankles, lips, eyes, and there's some patching along his back, neck, and very slight patching on his chest.
Likes: Explosions, bright colors, what happens when you drop certain shavings or solutions of metal in a flame (Especially copper), Acidic compounds and chemistry.
Dislikes: Reading, being bored, not being allowed to light things on fire, chickens and rainy days.
Fears: The vitiligo taking over his entire body, going blind
Goals: Not get sunburned again ever (Good luck), find a way to be allowed to play with his chemistry experiments in the weyr.
Quirks His interest in smithery is more an interest in explosions and fire that he's harnessing to good use, He tends to grin creepily a lot.
The biggest observation that people can attack to Caexon is that he's weird. He also really, really likes his job.
The man has a very strange enthusiasm. This specifically applies to anything he really likes, though in practice it's most frequently applied to chemistry and smithery in general. It's a sort of quiet, hyper enthusiasm— a motivation to move forward, combined with something like caffeine-induced jitters. He likes it, he's motivated to be around it and to do things with it.. people, activities, it matters not. Usually this sticks to activities however: you know. Setting things on fire, blowing things up.
He's always slightly manic. He talks a little bit fast, his eyes are a little bit wide, and when he's active, he's really active— bustling around, doing a lot of things at once, etc. If he's sitting still, he's either crashed because he's used up too much energy, or he's fidgeting because he hasn't used enough. He really hates being bored and having nothing to do- and conversely, he also hates doing busy work, work for the sake of work, or things he doesn't WANT to do. He wants to be productive, and he wants to be productive in ways he finds mentally enriching.
A lot of people find Caexon unnerving, partially due to this manic streak, and partially because he almost always is grinning. This, combined with a tendency to slouch and eyes that are perpetually wide with interest, makes him come off a bit odd upon first meeting. Also slightly unnerving is the fact that he's forward— he'll talk to anyone, right away, and occasionally he'll seem rather callous with teh sorts of comments he might make. There are some social graces he deliberately ignores, and some he may just have never learned in the first place. He doesn't seem to notice or care how strange some of his habits are. Caexon is somewhat social, though he can survive quite happily on his own if he needs to, and prefers to keep a few close friends at any given time.
Caexon really loves chemistry. a lot. He loves it for it's own, and for it's wonderful clockwork equations that fit together so perfectly, at least in his head. He has an advanced understanding of it and of numerical systems, though it's chemistry, more then any other smith-speciality, that lets him play with fire on purpose. He is a guy, and a teenage guy, at that. He likes taking risks, he likes adrenaline, he's prone to doing the occasionally stupid thing because it seemed like a good idea at the time (he's usually aware of that, and deliberately thinks that's a good reason: it's a freedom of expression and a thrill of life by the horns thing.). He really likes fire, and explosions, and making things explode in fun colors, or burn in fun colors… He adores his lab time— he'll do your standard work, like maintaining flamethrowers, but what he really adores is the lab time that lets him play with principles and conduct experiments. His resentment of hte weyr comes from the fact that they are preventing him from doing exactly that.

Curious, Bossy, Self-Assured, Helpful, Dare-Devil
Gazardieth is a curious little thing that /loves/ new things- ‘out with the old, in with the new’ is this girl’s motto. She quickly bores of routine and repetition, and will try and rebel against it- especially drills and chores. She’ll often try to boss her rider around in order to get out of these things, and there isn’t really a persuasive bone in her body- she prefers to strong-arm others in to her way of thinking.
Not that she is cruel, mind you; Gazardieth can be quite helpful if you have a problem that interests her. Added with her curious nature, she’ll often nose her way in to a problem that has nothing to do with her, and there is no way to get her to leave it alone. Like it or not, Gazardieth will stick with you until she feels the problem has a good resolution.
Gazardieth is also too self-assured, completely cocky and believing that she can do anything. It doesn’t take much goading to make her do some dangerous stunt off to prove how amazing she is, and she will sometimes see something and try to do it too… Just to prove that she can do anything any other dragon, human, or even firelizard can do. It’s be a good idea if her rider kept her on a tight leash, or else Gazardieth will easily do something to get herself injured.
mischievous, looks for trouble sometimes, bright, adventurous, fun-seeking, curious, likes attention, likes to make an /entrance/ and an impression on people, not easily intimidated, really only cares shat rider thinks, graceful.
loves new things, gets bored of routine, rebellious, bosses rider around, not persuasive- tries to force her opinion. not cruel- nosy, minds business. can be helpful. Inventive.

C'naex's history is not particularly atypical in one way or another. He was born to middle-class parents, both of whom were involved in the smith guild. He grew up in an environment informed by physics and chemistry. This influenced him, and as soon as they would take him, he also joined the smith guild. Neither of his parents specialized in chemistry, though it came frequently he also joined the smith guild. Neither of his parents specialized in chemistry, but he took to it with a joyous fervor.
There wasn't much to distraction from his studies (/expirements) for awhile. He threw himself at chemistry with joy, learning everything the smith guild had to offer that he could get to. The only distraction was when the weyr came to ride search: they pulled him, and... well. Dragons breathe fire. How could he resist?
He was met with success there, and has lived at the weyr since. He impressed Gazardieth, and a handful of firelizards. He has, after weyrling training and the rest, picked his studies with the smithcraft back up, but at a much slower rate. He has recently graduated to journeymanhood in the last year.
C'naex, Gazardeth, and all of the pets were 'ported in from Skyguard Weyr. Gaz is by the admins team there, whereas the pets are all by me. Things have been changed as appropriate.
