1) Tell us aboutyour character's background. Where did they grow up? What was their childhood like? Do they have siblings? Lots of extended family?

Tyrar was born at Bitra Hold, to a racer manager and his Healer wife. A certain aptitude for Smithing was cultivated when found combined with interest in the craft, and Tyrar was sent off to learn at the main Smithhall at the wee young age of 12.

He kept in close contact with his family throughout his apprenticeship, which was rocky enough due to his difficulties in anything that involves letters. Tutoring and extra Harper classes helped bring him up along with the rest of his class, and he walked the tables at a respectably young age: twenty-two.

With his new knot a posting was given— Tyrar was to go to Ista Hold. The metalsmith was working at settling in when his life was disrupted by a series of events: the arrival of his younger sister, then younger brother… and then, one late Istan night, a request to Stand for Ista's clutches.

2) Who is your character close to now? Fellow crafters, residents, lots of people, or a few in particular?

RYLI: His sister, who is unfortunately beautiful. She keeps him at the constant risk of having cardiac arrest from worrying over her virtue.


TRYSLAN: His brother, for all appearances a layabout gambler but a rather splendidly gifted jockey. Ty admittedly doesn't know how to handle his brother most of the time.


Q'LUIN: Ty would consider the dragonhealer a friend, a brother-in-arms against those who would impigne upon respective sister's virtues.


WYN: Not enough words to describe the complicated knotted combination of emotions that Tyrar has for the weyrwoman. Perhaps someday he'll unravel the knot and figure it out.


AVARRA: Tyrar has a habit of running into the greenrider more often than not, in the weirdest places. If he ever comes in with a black eye, she's probably to blame.


CORDELIA: A bemusing girl, if only because she's so easily baited by Q'luin. Tyrar's still waiting to see if he's going to die because he shielded her from Tia.


3) What personality trait or background element do you like most about your character? How would you like to build on that?

There are several key elements of Tyrar that are so intertwined that it's hard to pick just one! He is loyal, devoted, and his sense of duty and perception of priorities may be slightly skewed away from what would be considered "the norm". His blood remains first and foremost his priority in life. He's loosely based on the motif of a lion-in-sunlight, sleepy and bemused, satiated by a recent kill, with edges of bright fire for his passion regarding protecting his family and his anger at injustice. I'm not entirely sure where he's "going", or how things will build with his character— he's almost to the point of playing himself, already. ;P

4) What would you change about your character if you could? How might others help you do this?

I suppose I have a rough time answering this because a) Tyrar is a relatively new character and b) if I don't like something, I fix it. There's no fun in playing a character that you find yourself unhappy with. I /would/ like to see Ty season and mature and grow further than he is, and wild crazy random RP is the perfect thing to get him there, so that would be it, I imagine! ;)
