Physical Description of Persona:
Glorious, glossy black hair, combed back from a face with a razor-sharp nose, is the first thing typically noticed about D'erik. Expressive blue eyes and a quick smile make his bedside manner as a healer superb. Around 5'10", D'erik is about average in height. Thanks to a rigorous exercise routine, the bluerider's body is roped in lean muscle that his bed partner always appreciate.

Emotional Description of Persona:
D'erik is more than slightly arrogant, but it comes from his natural talent in the healercraft, and his overzealous blue dragon. Beneath the arrogance, is the heart of a healer who wants to save people, especially dragonriders. Quick-witted, and sometimes sharp-tongued, D'erik enjoys outdoor pursuits such as fishing, rock-climbing, and exercising.

History of Persona:
Born at Dragonsfall Weyr to a pair of healercrafters, healing is just in D'erik's blood. Growing up as Duerik, he always assumed that the healercraft would be his one true love and only pursuit in life. However, the return of Threadfall changed everything for everyone. Seeing dragonriders chewed up, disfigured, or killed by Threadfall changed his course.

At twenty Turns of age, Duerik stood on the Dragonsfall sands and Impressed to blue Sherath. While his healercraft had to take a backseat for a while, D'erik once again began working in the infirmary once he was out of Weyrlinghood. Being a dragonrider and a healer gives D'erik a unique perspective as he treats fellow dragonriders.

In D'erik's personal life he's bounce around from different relationships in his life. There was a lovely redhead that stuck around for a few Turns, but eventually she found herself tired of competing with D'erik's love of the healercraft. Whenever the bluerider isn't carrying out Wing related duties, participating in drills, or flying Threadfall, he's in the infirmary.

Dragon's Name: Sherath
Dragon's Age: 15
Dragon's Colour: Blue
Description of Dragon:
Sherath is a lovely slate shade of blue, like the shade of a rain cloud right before it bursts open. Sherath's personality is like that too, quiet at first, but once the floodgates open he's nearly unstoppable - at gossip, at flirting, at everything!
