M'lak stands just shy of 5'7", his slight stature fitting with his short height. His hair is starting to thing, a bit of grey streaking his temples, the rest of it no longer the same rich brown it was. Dark brown eyes have wrinkles forming at the corners, while his long nose balances small spectacles. His fingers seem to be permanently stained a tone of grey from working with little oily parts, and usually a smudge mars his face as well.
He wears simple riding leathers, in a medium brown, that have grease spots on them here and there, and the knot of the High Reaches weyrlingmaster sits on his shoulder.


M'lak, formerly Melak, was born and raised at Xanadu Weyr, son of a headwoman and her brownrider mate V'raf, rider to Shevarith. Growing up, he caused a fair number of headaches for his mother, as he tended to spend his time with a nose deep in a book rather then doing what he was suppose to do, when he was suppose to do it. He read anything and everything he could about the stars, often staying up all night, wandering away from the Weyr proper with the resident Starcrafter, to observe anything and everything he could.
A short period of his life was spent during his preteens at Honshu, taking advantage of the ancients' apparatus there. He returned to Xanadu Weyr at the request of his mother, only now he was a truly apprenticed StarCrafter. At 14 he was Searched for Genevraith's clutch, impressing a small blue named Adenylath. A few minor problems occurred during weyrlinghood, most a result of his tendency to get completely absorbed in his current job, forgetting what's going on around him, but eventually he graduated, joining Monsoon wing where he has been since. As a technical crafter, he earned his Journeyman knot, and has spent the time since split between his craft duties and his wing duties.
Until recently he was weyrmated to blue rider Serva at Xanadu Weyr, and with her he has a son, age 7, who spends his time with the two of them. The reason for the split is unknown, though they are still on friendly terms. He rode in the technology wing at Xanadu Weyr but has recently transferred to High Reaches to help with their Weyrlings.

Twilight of the Universe Blue Adenylath
Darkness enfolds the lithe form of Adenylath. Deepest indigo covers his form, settling across the curves of bone and sinew. The color deepens across his belly and under his tail to almost back. Aside from whirling faceted eyes, no light breaks through the deepest night that cloaks his chiseled head. As if lit by the rainbow regard of his eyes, cheekbones lighten to cerulean, fading back to indigo at the tip of his long muzzle. Then, it seems as though darkness loses its power over the blue. Dusting his long neck are pinpoints of powder blue. Some small, some larger, they dance and almost twinkle with every move of his muscles. Bulk does not characterize this blue, though. His smaller stature does not allow for it. Not stocky either, every muscle is smooth as liquid in its shape and movement. As Adenylath unfolds over large wings, the universe in all its glory shines for all to see. White, blue, green, gold, and bronze all find their way in the constellations across his wing sails. From leading edge, the stars seem to burst into existence, trailing off to midnight again as the sail makes way toward the trailing edge. Some slide into whirls of galaxies or bursts of novas. Others simply stare coldly at admirers, their stories left untold. Beyond his wings, the stars begin to die again, their beauty burning out in the furthest reaches of space. Down his tail, their numbers dwindle, the indigo fading once again to the black of his tail tip.
