Persona Profile: D'kere

Writer: Heather

Name: D'kere
Age: 36
Birthday: m9 d5
Rank: Wingsecond, Willow Wing
Location: Barrier Lake Weyrhold
Craft: Dragonhealer
Craft Rank: Junior Journeyman
Face Claim: Richard Madden

Physical Description of Persona:
D'kere has somewhat shaggy blonde hair with darker streaks of brown that give it an over all dirty-blonde look. A couple of days worth of facial hair is usually on his face, but underneath that is what his mother has always called her "sweet baby face." Which is probably the reason why D'kere has facial hair. He has an oval face with strong cheekbones that flare slightly, and are set beneath a pair of bright blue eyes. Not tall and not short, D'kere is average in height but whipcord lean with muscle.

Emotional Description of Persona:
D'kere was always something of a quiet child growing up, and the characteristic has stuck with him all the way into adulthood. He has a somewhat off-kilter sense of humor, which is probably the reason he finds making friends to be somewhat difficult. Unlike the stereotypical bronzerider, D'kere is not the smooth-talking womanizer that his good looks would suggest. Having been raised by just his mother, D'kere has a softer side once you get to know him.

History of Persona:
Born and raised at Dragonsfall, D'kere was raised mainly by his kitchen worker mother. She always told him stories about some grand and glorious bronzerider that had been his father, but D'kere never met such a man and if he was so "grand" wouldn't he have come forward to get to know his son? D'kere's mother was always the sickly sort and so even as a weyrbrat he found himself helping her out a lot in the kitchens when he could.

At fourteen he apprenticed to the dragonhealer's and by sixteen he had Impressed Kenirath and was eligable to become a Journeyman someday, which he did. At twenty D'kere became a junior journeyman, and practiced in his craft up until Thread returned. After flying a few Turns of Threadfall, D'kere has now settled into the new position of Weyrlingmaster's Second. With his nuturing nature and experience in dragonhealer, D'kere is a great addition to the Weyrlingstaff.

More recently the bronzerider has developed a relationship with the mercurial Talwynn. While they're not always the most traditional couple, D'kere finds himself irrevocably drawn to the greenrider.

After finding himself in a sticky situation with a green Weyrling, D'kere stepped down from the Weyrlingstaff at Dragonsfall. Later, he and Talwynn applied for positions at Barrier Lake where he accepted Weyrwoman Kapera's offer to be her Wingsecond.

Family and Friends
Talwynn, 26, Wingrider, Skybroom Wing, Barrier Lake Weyrhold (Girlfriend)
Devra, 56, Kitchen Worker (Mother)
Delryn, 19, Candidate (Half-Brother)

Dragon's Name: Kenirath
Dragon's Age: 19
Dragon's Colour: Bronze
Description of Dragon:
Kenirath is at the top of the size charts for a bronze dragon, which just made his impression to the quiet, and sensitive D'kere that much more ironic. The bronze is authoritative and intelligent, and much more confident than his human counterpart.
