Appearance: Davquil stands at an average height of just over five feet and possesses a natural olive complexion that leaves her slightly darker than most of the people born and raised so far north. Her once long, thick hair is a dark brown that looks almost black and seems to transition between curly and wavy, never really deciding which it would like to be. Because of this it is often hard to control unless contained with a thick braid though even then chunks and strands wriggle their way free. Dav’s face is mostly round and very much like her mother’s with a blunted chin and dimples. Her eyes are almond shaped and a brown color, nearly black and her nose small and straight. Her smile is cheerful and readily available and freckles are scattered across much of her body, her face included.
Since Impression and graduation she has acquired an array of scars, the most noticeable being a long, deliberate slash on her left cheek as well as burn scars across her shoulders and neck.
Personality: Growing up with two older brothers, Dav learned early on how to stand up for herself though thanks to her mother’s constant attention she wasn’t allowed to become one of those rough and tumble girls that are sometimes the result of too many brothers. Instead she often tagged along when her mother went out to help with the birthing of a new babe and because of this, grew very fond of babies and small children. With seeming infinite patience, not much ruffles this girl’s feathers and she seems to reserve her opinions unless asked. For the most part, Dav is a happy person and prefers being such; she also likes to see those around her happy and so is always ready with a joke or two if necessary though they are rarely any good. One of her most noticeable traits is her nearly constant smile and her bubbly laugh.
History: Davquil was the third child born to Daventar and Quilla, a couple residing in Icy Cavern Hold. Her father was a weaver and her mother a midwife who helped the local healers when asked and otherwise tended to the pregnant women of the Hold from time to time. With two older brothers, and later a younger brother, Dav was the only girl child born of the marriage and so she was a bit spoiled by her parents. It didn't rot her like it did some children as she still had plenty of responsibility, often for her younger brother and to help her mother with her tasks. Growing up in Icy Cavern Hold, Davquil was a bubbly child and made friends easily though of all the children her own age, her best friend was the daughter of the local healer; Barenda. The two of them constantly planned frivolous, romantic futures for each other that included dashing dragonriders, gallant Lord Holder sons and even dangerous adventures. The two are still close, though Dav has recently been allowed to stand as a Candiate for the clutch at Ice Stone Weyr, courtesy of her brother V'quin.
Not long after arriving at the Weyr Davquil met a lad who would become perhaps the best friend she'd ever had, aside from Barenda, a young man she'd oddly enough met in passing a few times in her earlier youth. His name was Tivax Cavernborn and the two hit it off quite well during a round of chores and both were lucky enough to Impress on the Sands. Davquil to a rather perplexing creature; Purple-Grey Male Niekolgoth. Tivax, now T'vax though Dav still calls him Tiv, Impressed to Chrome Slinesteth which sent up a cry of ill portents which Dav just thinks is silly. How can a baby dragon mean doom, after all? It's just a baby after all.
Now, during their stint as weyrlings, the two have formed a bond that only seems to grow stronger and is echoed by their dragons. It is uncertain the direction Dav's path with take but she knows one thing for certain; Niekolgoth will travel it with her; as will T'vax and Slinesteth as she will not have it any other way.

Dragon's Name: Niekolgoth (NEE - eh - KOL- goth)
Dragon's Gender: Male
Dragon's Age: Adult (born 3073.13.21)
Dragon's Color: Purple-Gray
Dragon's Size: 26 Feet
Dragon's Personality: This odd dragon seems to have a hard time balancing his feelings. He got the energy that most purple dragons have, but he needs his rider to give him support, otherwise he bolts away for a sulk. Frustration comes to him easily and he actually likes arguing. This is less because he doesn't like people and more the way he likes getting to know people. He doesn't understand when people take arguments to heart, as he accepts people have different views when it is all over. It's not easy to change his mind on things, if only because he feels it's more about learning the views then forcing others to take yours.
