Mini Bio:
Quite the average dragon, nonetheless Apgeth exudes a comforting air. She tries to be non-threatening when she moves, all gentle limbs and quiet rustling of wings. She's not exactly a delicate dragon - hers is a middling build that will give her more stamina than smaller greens, but a lack of agility as well. However, she has an innate inner confidence, for all her attempts not to seem looming and scary - especially when it comes to children. her appearance is quite rounded, and Apgeth will always look as if it has a slight, friendly smile on her mouth. A dusky mid green, she's nothing special to look at.

If there's one thing that defines Apgeth, it's her love of children. She's not a gold, so she'll never have babies of her own, but that doesn't bother her in the slightest. She's just as happy observing children, both human and dragon. She'll watch them play, observe their apparent health, comment on the dynamics between them as they interact. Babies in particular will be a fascination for Apgeth, and she may try to get friendly enough with a gold or the Weyrlingmasters to be allowed time with the Weyr's youngest dragons.

She's a little obsessive over health, perhaps, and should her rider have any children she'll be both useful due to wanting to watch over them, but also quite wary of them falling ill. The merest hint of something being wrong will have Apgeth wanting to act. Her love for children is only matched by her love for her rider.

Apgeth will never be particularly interested in male dragons. They'll be friends, certainly, but Apgeth is very much about being equal with them. This won't extend to overacting to appear better or smarter than them - Apgeth simply believes that female dragons - and by extension, humans - are every bit as good as men. She's no flag waver for the feminist movement; she simply feels she doesn't need to be, because the genders are equal, and that's that. Her proddy periods will be extremely short; her flights over and done with quickly. Then she can get on with her life free of intruding males.

Inspiration: Virginia Apgar, the first woman professor at Columbia University College in the field of anaesthesia, after the field began to be taken more seriously. She would go on to invent the Apgar score, which is still used today to quickly evaluate a newborn's condition.
