Mini Bio:
Xayreth is, to most outward appearances, a very symmetrical dragon, down to the very way she holds herself—typically sturdy and upright, wings and limbs at mirrored positions. The awkwardness that plagues most hatchlings she will mostly be free from, except at bedtime, in which she seems to sleep in an only vaguely dragon-shaped pile of tangled wings, tail, and limbs. Xayreth’s true beauty comes in flight, where she able to perform the most lovely loops, corkscrews, and dips, all of which she executes with amazing uniformity and precision. Her light green hide is dappled with darker spots, which form X’s that spread symmetrically across her body on both sides.

This green has a bit of a chip on her shoulder, and seems to attract controversy. It’s not as if she isn’t as capable as her clutchmates—she surpasses many of them, in fact, but her accomplishments have a tendency to go unnoticed where it really counts. Her disposition would not suggest this tendency to be overlooked, as Xayreth has a direct, rather intense way of interacting others, so maybe a lot of them, especially the males, are just intimidated by her. Either way, this green does not work exceptionally well with most of her counterparts, coming across as superior and even a bit cruel at times to the more timid dragons. Given the right set of teammates, however, Xayreth’s accomplishments will be many, even if she never really stands out.

A determined Threadfighter, Xayreth is perhaps just a little too fascinated with Pern’s oldest enemy, especially with determining the structures and mechanisms surrounding the parasite. A close up look at a good specimen of Thread will be one of Xayreth’s greatest goals, but in the mean time she is content observing forms here on Pern. She is able to find beauty in even in the smallest of creatures and structures—the fine texture of a dragon’s hide, the many facets of an eye, the delicate structure of a human’s hand. Her intensity persists even in these more serene pursuits, but there is something encouragingly all knowing about this dragon, as if she has the key to life itself figured out.
