2023/08/04 Hello loves! While I haven't been writing, I have been working on updating some issues that have been hanging around on the layout! The Character change box is now at the bottom of the page, beside the up/down arrows! Green and Gold dragon flight dates have been shifted to the bottom of the page, where the (useless!) discord widget was located. Where the dragon flights were in the header, is now replaced by a Monthly Event box! This will be updated at the start of each month, with a fun mini-event you can take part in, if you want to! Thistle!

Hair Colour:
General Description:
She has dark brown hair and eyes, a wide smile that frequently turns into a "I know more than you do" smirk. Her dark brown hair swings to about her waist and is usually a mussed mess because she's been running around doing all sorts of chores or playing.
General Dressing Style:
Tunics and dresses, neat for the most part unless she's been helping out a rider then she's in oil stained clothes and is mucked up.

People who make no effort to understand her
People who cheat
Walking (she'd rather run)
Going slow
Easily bored if it's not a topic she enjoys
Gotta go fast 99% of the time
Makes mistakes in chores and the like because she's always ready to go onto the next thing and isn't as careful as she should be
Habits & Mannerisms:
Chews her fingernails when nervous
Eats like a hungry dragonet, then runs
General Personality:
She's a bouncy, bright, hilarious ten turn old who is everywhere all at once or would be if it were physically possible. She wants to do all the things right now but she's fixated on dragons and anything dragon-like. Zarel is a curious thing, always getting into something or another and really enjoys learning new things -- even if they might seem stupid to others.

She definitely wants to Stand as soon as she can and is forever trying to get a glimpse of the Sands and pestering her mother for a firelizard egg of her own. At some point, Zahrah, her mother, will relent. If there's one thing she's good at, it's wheedling people into things like...getting that egg or an extra bubblie pie. She can be super good at using her charms to get what she wants out of life.

Alekse, soon to be dad, yo
Taydarell - friend
Her bronze firelizard, Jasper, was meant for her friend Tayderell but due to unfortunate circumstances (Taydee being on the pot), she Impressed his firelizard. While they're not on speaking terms at the moment, Zarel is deeply, deeply guilty about the Impression. She would rather have Taydee as a friend than have his firelizard any day.

But now that she has Jasper, she's honour bound to take the best care of him ever. One of the reasons it hit her so hard was because she kinda had a crush on Taydee and now he hates her forever.
Zarel is fantastic at drawing and is always sketching something. She likes dragons best and firelizards. Her art skill is actually pretty fantastic and as she ages will only get better with practise. She has a particular skill with freezing an image in her mind like a painting and then using that to draw from.

She has a bronze firelizard named Jasper.
Important History:
731 &0: Born without complications to Zahrah and Dannel in the early hours of 28.01.731.
735 & 4: Nearly dies in mudslide, mother rescues her just in time. Has nightmares about it.
736 & 5: Moves to Telgar Weyr with her mother and grandmother. When her grandmother looks to Ista Weyr and they move for the warmth, and her grandmother's bones, Zarel takes to the new location readily and with a curious nature. She runs everywhere, zooming all over the place to the constant, shrill creche workers telling her to slow down.
738 & 7: Helps oil a dragon, gets covered in oil and doesn't care. Proclaims she wants to be a Dragonrider or...bust, basically. Continually puts herself into situations that allow her see, touch, or help with dragon care. Bugs her mom for a firelizard of her own, though she loves Shard. Still has nightmares about the mudslide. She runs a great deal and enjoys it, and her mother doesn’t object because it wears her out.
740 & 9: Wins a race at a Gather for running - and she's fast, too.
741: Moves to Benden Weyr with her mom, still vows to become a Candidate and Dragonrider.
741: Meets Alekse for the first time as he runs in for a stay with her mother. Adores the man immediately. Gets running shoes from him and they go on runs together sometimes. She's very careful with her running shoes and only uses them on the traces she practises on.
Watches as her mother Impresses the gold, Sedath, at Fort! She's torn between becoming a Runner and Standing for a dragonet of her own, though she has a turn to decide.
Impresses Tayderell's bronze firelizard on accident. Causes a rift between the two weyrbrats that Zarel feels deeply guilty about. She swears to make it up to him and begins working extra hours for the Candidate Master, hoping to gain an egg early so she can give it to Taydee.

General Weyrfolk education; reading writing, maths, all of which she enjoys and is good at. Perhaps her math is a touch lower than her reading but she gets it.
