K'ton has a rather strong dislike for firelizards, he likens them to tunnelsnakes and outside that he hasn't quite figure out why he dislikes them so. K'ton is a bit annoyed that his rough and tumble (okay not really) blue has a simply moronic fascination with them. Ironth is steadfast in his refusal to disregard the little things and continues to plague K'ton with requests for one or four.
K'ton thinks he’s a ladies’ man. This isn’t helped by the fact that he is rarely without feminine company. He doesn’t particularly like children but he tolerates them because Ironth seems to enjoy their company. There are times when, like Ironth, K'ton needs to be alone and will bar his door to company. Likes to feign a broken heart at the slightest provocation. Taps his foot with irritation and has an annoying habit of wiggling his brows.
K'ton is rather honest for a womanizer. He isn’t afraid to tell anyone the truth whether they like it or not. Not necessarily a strength but because of his rather large ego K'ton has somewhat of a hero complex and will come to the aid of those who need it. K'ton’s flaws are varied and possibly many. He is arrogant and rather uncaring when it comes to people. The only thing K'ton really cares about is Ironth and himself. He has a rather overly inflated sense of self. None of these makes for a very “friend” friendly man though he never seems to have much trouble with the ladies.Appearance:
K'ton is a taller man standing 6’ with a fit muscular frame, broad shoulders ending in a neatly tapered waist. He possesses startling blue eyes inherited from some distant relative on his father’s side of the family and they tend to sparkle with his good humor. His wavy hair is on the dark side of brown and he tends to keep it in a rather unkempt fashion. His has something of a youthful looking face, think baby face and to combat this K'ton tries his hardest to always has at least a 5 o’clock shadow.
His is a swarthy complexion from the years spent working on his parents’ cothold and from flying in the cold temperatures in the sky. He is an attractive man with his easy smile and is a hit with many of the women in the weyr. K'ton can mostly be found in wherry hide riding pants and jacket. Either that or he’ll run about half naked given the chance. What better way for the ladies to admire his form?Family:

Keaton was born some twenty five turns ago to a pair of cotholders beholden to Telgar. He joined one older sister before being joined by two younger brothers. Keaton's life was rather uneventful, nothing extraordinary seemed to happen to him outside a broken arm and fever when he was around ten. The most exciting thing to ever happen to Keaton was the appearance of a blue rider from Telgar Weyr. A blue rider that told him and his parents that he had that certain something. A dragon was in his future and it didn't take any stretch of the imagination for Keaton to agree with the rider.
Candidacy was fun, Keaton taking to it like a fish to water and he stood for a few clutches with no success. It was no big deal to the easy going kid because he just knew his searchrider couldn't be wrong and he refused to accept it. His faith was rewarded when he impressed Ironth. The smallish blue hatchling yelled his name into his mind and everything for K'ton was complete. Throughout his weyrlinghood K'ton hears about the new colors that keep cropping up here and there but he really doesn't give much thought to it. They're just dragons and Pern always needed dragons.
It was about three turns after impression that K'ton realized that his dragon was painfully shy. Ironth avoided others with a pointed ability and K'ton worried slightly that his dragon would be left stunted if he couldn't change it. They worked on it and while there were a few people that Ironth enjoyed enough to come out of his shell, K'ton still has not been able to get his dragon to engage in group activities with an open attitude. Flights not withstanding, Ironth much prefers the company of his rider and only his rider. Even other dragons are an issue.
Throughout their years, K'ton and Ironth heard of the troubles that seemed to plague that western weyr, Dalibor. Everything from murders to candidate death to attacks by strange people. The blizzard that struck the western continent made K'ton glad he didn't live there. No matter how interesting that place was, he had no desire to deal with that level of snow fall.
Thread fell in strange patterns and K'ton worried. When it came in sudden massive storms, K'ton thought for sure they were done for. But they survived. If it was one thing the bluerider and his dragon did well was survive. The loss of their weyrleadership hit Telgar hard. It didn't take long for a new set to rise though and the weyr survived. When that little queen flew, Ironth joined the rest. K'ton couldn't fathom what his blue was thinking at the time, blues did not fly queens but someone did - a blue at that! - and thank the first egg it wasn't them.
They still heard about those interesting happenings out at Dalibor and K'ton finally decide he and Ironth needed a chance of scenery. K'ton put in the request and with a bit of side eyeing, his weyrleader relented and let them go west. Now to have a bit of fun and maybe this change of a weyr would get Ironth out of his shell and entice the blue to make more friends. Dragon Name:
10 turnsDragon Color:
Where his rider is outgoing and exuberant in his nature, Ironth tends to be more subdued. He always thinks before he reacts and at times will do what he must to keep K’ton out of trouble. Ironth is a perfect stabilizer for K'ton. Where K'ton rushes ahead and does what he pleases Ironth is there to reel him in. He is a rather steady eddy, he is K'ton’s voice of reason and it takes much to actually ruffle his feathers.
He can be somewhat shy when faced with the rest of his species unless a flight is involved and is always the last to reply. He prefers to speak to K’ton and only K’ton causing many eye rolls from his bonded as he conveys Ironth’s wishes or words. He enjoys being around human children and will sometimes even let them climb on him but not as often as they would like. K'ton of course is his number one like. For all his rider is a silly man Ironth enjoys him immensely. Ironth also has taken a rather strong like for firelizards and bugs K'ton incessantly to find a few so he can have some friends. Dragon Appearance:
Ironth is a medium sized blue coming in at around 32ft long with a wingspan that is roughly 48ft in width. Ironth is much the same color as the deep ocean waters with lighter hints of blue along his wings and bony ridges ending in a fairly light blue on his tail tips. He has a few faint splashes of brighter color along his spine. His coloring is deepest along his flanks and the top of his neck. Ironth sports a few scars here and there from various flights won during his stay at Telgar and has a particularly jagged one along his right flank. Dragon History:
Ironth knew nothing before his hatching and finding of K'ton. After which was a fairly uneventful werylinghood and finally, adulthood. Ironth enjoyed his life at Telgar Weyr for the most part and he was around 3 turns when he and K'ton realized how shy this blue was. His rider tried hard to help him overcome it but the only time Ironth is not so shy is during flights. He won his first about five years ago and his last just before their transfer to Dalibor.
Neither Ironth or his rider were particularly concerned when Telgar got it's first fighter dragon jr. weyrleader but both of them were relieved that it was not them. Ironth didn't argue with his rider when K'ton requested a transfer to the odd little weyr and they have come to have a little fun so his rider says. Adoption Preference:
