General Description:
J'shom did not have a terribly athletic life prior to becoming a dragonrider. His mother was kitchen staff at the Harper Hall and his father was a Harper. He did little manual labor as a child, and then he became a Harper apprentice and did even less. He dis develop finger callouses from instrument playing, but that was really the only sign he did any work at all.

Being Stolen led to him having to do more 'actual' work, assisting around Katila in a larger capacity than he was used to, and then having to learn to ride and care for a dragon. J'shom picked up a few nicks and cuts here and there as a Candidate and as a Rider, so he has a few subtle scars nowadays in addition to the general increases athleticism. He still maintains his callouses for playing music.
General Dressing Style:
Loves wearing leather pants and leather jackets, as well as loose, flowy shirts. He's never lost his Harper trained flair for the dramatic, and it shows in his choice of clothing.
Ewan McGregor
Personality
Likes:
Children: He's a teacher at heart, and genuinely cares for the people he teaches. He spends a lot of time in the creche, teaching the children there because he genuinely enjoys teaching, not just because he has to. His idea of 'children' ends around 12 or 13 turns old, after which he's not so good at dealing with them.
Socializing : J'shom has great fun at social gatherings, meeting new people, hanging out with friends, all of it. He especially enjoys when there are other former Harpers there.
Firelizards : He thinks they're darling, and has three of his own. Other people neglecting the firelizards bonded to them makes him wish he could adopt all of them.
Strengths:
Persistent: J'shom has a deep well of patience that he can use to almost always get his way. This trait helps him in both teaching children and with his headstrong dragon.
Trustworthy: He will never share any information told to him in confidence, with the rare exception of his silence leading to someone being significantly hurt.
Unaggressive: People assume that J'shom would never fight back, and they're generally right. J'shom is hard to provoke and distinctly not eager to get involved in altercations beyond trying to solve the problem.
Dislikes:
Sleeping Outside: He is used to living in relative comfort. Even as a traveling Harper he was given decent lodgings where he stayed. Katila could've been worse, and he sure is glad he didn't have to live there before Recall. He very much likes to have a nice bed and a roof over his head.
Snakes: Awful, awful things, keep them far away from him.
Closed-minded People: Even before becoming a dragonrider, J'shom had been raised in the Harper Hall, which, other than the Weyrs, is one of the more open places on Pern. Due to this, J'shom does not like people who refuse to try new things or even attempt to understand other people or why they do things differently.
Flaws:
Nosy: J'shom thinks highly of his conflict resolution abilities, and often inserts himself in situations he isn't wanted (or even needed). His teacher instincts also prompt him to keep on top of other people's relationships so he can mediate if necessary.
Disorderly: The man has no ability to keep things tidy. Things get misplaced, lost, and forgotten. Don't lend him things if you want them back.
Well-meaning: He's likely to think the best of people, and even when someone has repeatedly screwed him over he'll still be willing to give them another chance because he's nice like that. This tends to get him in bad friendships, relationships, and situations.
Habits & Mannerisms:
He often goes into 'teacher mode' when someone asks a question or needs help with something, no matter who is asking or whether or not they really wanted an answer. It can make J'shom come off as overbearing and a know-it-all.
General Personality:
J'shom appears friendly and happy to help. Generally, both those things are true. Even if he isn't happy with the situation, he doesn't usually show it, preferring to maintain a laid-back air. Some of this is due to his training as Harper, and his desire to appear in control of the situation at all times (a technique that is useful when dealing with younger children). He likes to be liked, and does his best to encourage people to consider him a friend, or at least a positive acquaintance.

Mentally, he is perfectly happy to rant about all the problems about a given or situation, but he rarely voices these thoughts aloud. Siolilth and J'shom enjoy having telepathic bitch fits about all the people and things they don't like. Even when he gripes about a person, it's more about their actions than about them. He believes all people have the ability to change.

Important History:
703 AL & Birth: Jiershom was born, the second child and first son of a Harper and his wife, a kitchen drudge. His older sister, Lashell, was overjoyed to have a sibling.
Year & Age:
706 AL & 3 Turns: Larshom and Jeriel's third child is born, a daughter named Lariell. Young Jiershom loves his tiny sister and spends most of his time with her.
708 AL & 5 Turns: Jhom, Jiershom's first brother is born. He continues to spend most of his time with his siblings.
710 AL & 7 Turns: Jiershom's singing and storytelling talent is discovered by his mother and the other women who watch the children, as he often sings to his siblings to help the sleep or calm them down, as well as making up new songs or stories when he runs out of ones he's heard.
711 AL & 8 Turns: An illness sweeps through the Hall, and while it is rarely fatal Jeriel hides away her children to keep them from getting ill for about 2 months. Jiershom has plenty of time to practice singing and storytelling with his captive sibling audience. He is often joined by his elder sister, Lashell, in his efforts, as she is also a naturally talented singer.
713 AL & 10 Turns: Lashell, now 12 turns old, wants to be apprenticed. With some hesitation, this is allowed, mostly due to the fact she has a beautiful singing voice and their father is a master Harper.
715 AL & 12 Turns: Jiershom was apprenticed as soon as he was old enough, as he had been shown to have a talent for the craft. He doesn't know many of the other apprentices well, as he spent most of his time with his siblings. It takes little time for him to figure out how to make friends due to his genial nature.
716 AL & 13 Turns: By the end of the year, all dragonriders (to the North's knowledge) are dead or gone. Jiershom, who liked many of the songs about dragonriders, is saddened by this, but life goes on. He had to learn a song about it, along with the rest of the Jr. Apprentices in the apprentice choir.
718 AL & 15 Turns: An older Harper who works as a scribe takes Jiershom under his wing and Jiershom becomes a Sr. Apprentice. He spends a lot of time helping the older Harper going through recorded texts and re-writing them where necessary (Jiershom did not do the writing, as his penmanship was not trusted just yet, he did the sorting of the documents). From this experience, Jiershom learned a lot of songs and stories, including older, less well known ones.
719 AL & 16 Turns: Sometime over the turn Jiershom starts working with the youngest apprentices, helping them get adjusted to apprenticeship and teaching them various studying techniques and the like. Several master Harpers take note.
722 AL & 19 Turns: His older sister Lashell has been an apprentice for 9 turns. When questioned, the masters show no interest in promoting her to journeyman any time soon. They plan on keeping her as an apprentice for at least another 5 turns. Incensed, Lashell leaves the Hall. The family is shaken, with Jeriel blaming her husband for not doing enough to keep their daughter around (assuming that his status as a master gave him some say in the situation) and Larshom claiming that the masters make decisions based on talent and facts. The sibling are split, with Lariell strongly disavowing their sister's actions, while Jhom (now a Sr. Apprentice, and higher ranked than his elder sister ) supported her choice. Jiershom was conflicted, not agreeing with Lashell's choice to leave, but thinking that maybe her work and training should have been more acknowledged. Relationships within the family fray a bit, as everyone takes sides.
723 AL & 20 Turns: Jiershom graduates his apprenticeship and is now a Jr. Journeyman. Due to the masters noticing his propensity for teaching, he is almost immediately asked to be a teacher, and go around between Holds and towns to make sure all children are receiving at least a basic education, and children of talent are sent to the Hall. He is somewhat happy to escape his family, still feuding in the wake of Lashell's departure.
724-729 & 21-26 Turns: Traveling and teaching becomes Jiershom's life. He returns at least once a turn to the Harper Hall to check in, learn any news or new songs he hasn't picked up already, and visit his friends, family, and former mentor. He has a few short relationships and one-night-stands in these years, mostly with women but the occasional well concealed tryst with another man.

Wherever he went, he kept an eye out for Lashell, but never found her, or even word of her.
730 AL & 27 Turns: While traveling between outcrop villages Jiershom is kidnapped/Stolen by I'shan and brought to Katila on the Southern Continent. Jiershom is a bit put out by this, but in addition to his Candidacy the dragonriders are perfectly happy to allow him to teach the children of Katila the teaching songs and the other general education given by Harpers on the Northern Continent, so he is somewhat appeased by this. He hopes the riders will eventually move North again.
731 AL & 28 Turns: Jiershom gets used to life in Katila, and he is one of the Stolen who is more kindly inclined towards the dragonriders. He has no expectations as to Impressing a dragon, but he does have a bit of hope that he will. He bonds to a blue firelizard in this time, and he decides he is happy with his firelizard, even if he never Impresses a dragon.
732 AL & 29 Turns: Halfway through the turn, he Impresses to green Siolilth and becomes J'shom. He loves his young dragon.
734 AL & 31 Turns: J'shom and Siolilth return North, which makes J'shom happy; he has the chance to see his family and old friends, as well as get caught up on all the new songs composed while he was 'away.' He does, sadly, learn that his father has died while he was down South, which brought up complicated feelings for J'shom, having not been there for his father.
735 AL & 32 Turns: Siolilth's talent for Searching is discovered, and the pair are promoted to searchriders now that they have returned North and have resumed regular Searching.
736-739 AL & 33-36 Turns: The next few turns are spent mostly Searching and assisting in teaching weyrbrats. He does buy himself a very fancy standing harp sometime 738 or 739, using a very large percentage of the marks he makes as a greenrider.
741 AL & 38 Turns : Gets together with B'kit at the beginning of the Turn.

Additional Information:
Jiershom is not untalented with instruments, and his voice is quite good, but his real skill lay with teaching children. He was sent out as a traveling Harper to teach the children of outlying villages as soon as he was deemed ready. A good number of Harpers aren't fond of their role of teacher, and much prefer adult audiences, so someone like Jiershom was who actually favored that part of the job was to be used to great effect by the mastercrafters.

Dragon Information
Name:
Siolilth
Colour:
Green
Pronounced:
See-oh-lith (second 'l' is silent, J'shom just writes it there cause he's Like That)
Wing and Rank:
Wingrider of
Siolilth
Adult Stats
21 foot length, 12 foot tall, with a 30 foot wingspan.
Clutch Details:
Gold Krypth x Brown Tyrrisath at Katila Weyr on the 15.07.732 AL [Clutch Page]
Weyrlinghood
Pale green with a few darker speckles. A pretty self-possessed hatchling.
Siolilth
Adulthood
Her hide darkened a bit, still fairly light in color, but darker than in weyrlinghood. Her underbelly and wing edges remained paler, but brightened and became a more vibrant green. She also has some brighter patches on her legs. Siolilth is thin and delicate, a rather dainty dragon.
Mindvoice
Silvery, but gets sharper when she's upset.
Personality
Siolilth likes being a bit of a lady, and often acts polite and ladylike when around others. With just her rider, and on occasion close friends, she can be much cattier, more stubborn, and much less polite than she usually is. She's very headstrong and likes things to go her way. To her mild frustration, J'shom is well suited to handle her, experienced as he is in dealing with bratty children (a comparison she always glowers at).

One of her real talents is Searching, and she always finds at least one viable candidate. She is best at finding riders for female dragons, golds and greens, both of which are important when it comes to Searching, as greens are the most populous dragon color in the Weyrs and golds are the most important. Siolilth is very proud of this skill, and gets put out and snappish when someone questions her choices.
Quirks
Very catlike, Siolilth curls her tail around her feet when she's sitting or lying down.
Flight Records
Ugh, some randos, Siolilth doesn't care about literally any of them enough to remember.
