A small and slight boy, clearly not having hit any adolescent growth spurts as yet. His shoulders are slender and his hips narrow. Jet black hair is worn slightly long for a boy, framing a rather delicate face. He might, thus, be mistaken for effeminate, although at his age it is hard to tell. His eyes are dark brown, set beneath slender brows. He is the kind of boy who could well be accused of being 'pretty'. In motion, he is quick, perhaps too much so, and his hair has a tendency to fall across his face.
He wears plain clothing, although when he does dress up, he shows a preference for deep reds. His voice is in the process of breaking. It holds the rough tones of adolescent uncertainty, often fluctuating between light alto and tenor ranges.

Doval is almost, but not quite, a young man. In many ways, he is still a boy. He doesn't like hard work much, is a bit too fond of bubblies, and never walks anywhere if running will do the job. He tends to run verbally, too, often explaining things people don't want explained and hearing the words 'Shut up, Doval' fairly often. Weyrbred, Impressing a dragon is pretty much his assumed goal. He can't imagine any other life and doesn't want to. With his father being a bluerider, he has half an eye on getting better than that, but he doesn't care as long as its a dragon. Hey, even greens have their place...although he's not so keen on the actual color.
Doval has got over girls having cooties, but he still doesn't know what to make of them. His shyness around females is likely to grow into an adult trait if something is not done. He's a good kid on the whole,, even if getting him to comb his mop of hair is often tough. And he's just hoping his dragon is in the next clutch. He'd even settle for a wher, but not yet. Not until he gets close to aging out and is actually worried about it. Seriously, lots of people stand lots of times.
In fact, nothing really worries Doval. Or ruffles him. Happy go lucky is definitely one of his traits, and he always seems to be happy. Perhaps that will change as he leaves the vestiges of childhood behind him...
\\ History //
Doval was a flight brat. Not unwelcomed, but not particularly embraced either. His mother handed him off to the creche at weaning and both parents have been visitors to his life rather than deeply involved in it. Despite this, he was always close to his father.
He was, of course, a typical weybrat. It was taken as read that he would reach twelve and Stand until he Impressed. With no ambitions otherwise or interest in any craft, he paid attention in his lessons only as much as he needed to. Then bad things happened. Very bad things. Doval's mother was killed in the war, and his father was never quite the same afterwards. Doval...being Doval, he showed resilience, although the one thing that became able to get him down was mentioning his mother. He has already stood once, not long after his twelfth birthday, but he did not Impress.
Maybe he's not ready yet. In the interim, he'll enjoy his life, do his chores (as little as possible) and hope for his dragon in the next clutch.
