Physical Description of Persona:
Harki is of middling height and muscular rather than curvy. Her hair is an attractive honey-brown and her eyes are dark and lively, but her favourite feature are her legs, which are the most feminine thing about her. She tends to gesture with her hands when she speaks and she laughs very loudly.

Emotional Description of Persona:
Harki likes to provoke people and often comes across as loud, abrasive, and self-absorbed. She also has a bit of a problem with authority, especially when she doesn't agree with a decision or finds it hide-bound.

That being said, she's also enthusiastic, an adrenaline junkie, and knows how to have a good time. She'll staunchly defend the people she cares about but is rather scornful of weak or helpless personalities. She believes in personal accountability and isn't scared to accept the consequences of her actions-but only if she's caught or called out. Her close friends see a slightly softer, kinder side to the greenrider, but she gets embarrassed if her nicer acts are fussed over.

History of Persona:
Harki is a Dragonsfall weyrbrat who grew up under a series of foster mothers. She led a small pack of children around her own age and tended to get them into a lot of trouble - it would have been more if she hadn't had some talent for also getting them _out_ of it! When she was 12 her foster mother at the time apprenticed her to the Bakers. She didn't show much of an aptitude for it and spent most of her apprenticeship plotting ways to escape her lessons.

She surprised a lot of people when she Impressed at 14, and surprised them again by surviving both weyrlinghood and the first Fall. Harki has grown into a reliable wingrider, but her Weyrlife is still coloured by her rebellious nature.

Harki recently thought she'd fallen in love, enough so that she followed a brownrider named B'lac to Rising Moons Weyr. Their relationship quickly soured, but Harki was too proud to return home to Dragonsfall Weyr until the Weyrleadership started recruiting wingriders after a small Clutching.

Dragon's Name: Cerillith
Dragon's Age: 21
Dragon's Colour: Green
Next Mating Flight: m1 d26 of turn 12
Description of Dragon:
Cerillith is a midsized green with an outgoing nature and a bit of a lazy streak. Harki has to watch to make sure that she doesn't take shortcuts, although now that a few Threadscores mar her perfect green hide she's learnt to save her lazing until after Threadfall.
