Candidate Viiox

"Quicker than the curious, and brighter than a meteor
Never knowing who to trust can make me insecure
Let me clear my throat, let me catch my breath
Let my heart bleed out till there's nothing left
It's my day to be brilliant"

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire
NAME: Viiox
GENDER: Female (Cis)
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Pansexual

BIRTHDATE: Late Spring, 2744
AGE: 25 as of Early Winter 2769 (just turned)
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate, Apprentice Dragonhealer
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: Short and muscular (not quite slender, but not quite bulky, either)
PLAY-BY: Ironicmemeing (Top, image cropped), themushroomancer (Bottom)
FULL APPEARANCE: Viiox is not especially tall, standing at only 5'7". Don't let her height fool you--she's evidently muscular, albeit in a lean way, without much bulk. That said, she's still sturdy-looking--a little like a runner or swimmer in build, but with a bit of a boxier, stronger shape, she definitely looks the type who can hold her own--and she can. Despite her size, she is a decent fighter, with speed, dexterity, and reflexes as her strong points. Her strength and endurance are hardly the best, however.

There is a scar running vertically down her left cheek, just below her eye. Beyond her scar, she is a bit plain in appearance, and has a relatively unremarkable face. Perhaps handsome or pretty, in a way, but she is not the type to draw looks. Her lips are full and her skin is pale; she boasts amber-brown eyes and dark brown hair. Her hair is straight and thick, with a slight wave, and usually worn in a long braid. Her eyebrows are low and thin, and her lashes are dark. Overall, her face is broad, with full cheeks and a low brow.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: an intelligent and passionate person who strives to be the best she can be and refuses to be hurt or used; she is caring, but comes across as casual and carefree.

Viiox is a woman of science; she believes in what can be observed and replicated. Innovation and invention are two values she has. She wants to answer every question, learn every detail, know everything. Incredible curiosity meets intelligence, as she has a strong mind to absorb new things. She is always questioning, always asking how and when and most of all, why. Nosy or inquisitive? Curious or a gossip? Either way, she is an explorer at heart; she likes trying new things, going to new places, meeting new people--and above all, knowing. Intelligence isn't the only thing she cares about, though. She is a kind heart, who strives to protect others, even if at her own expense (though naturally, she'd avoid that, if at all possible). She wants the best for others, but she does enjoy teasing them. She tries not to take it too far, but that’s how she shows affection.

Without a doubt, Viiox can be reckless. She tends to view her own health as inconsequential, a strange mixture of impulsive "invulnerability" and "curiosity killed the cat." She's confident in her abilities, even a bit cocky at times, and her ambitions know no bounds. She doesn't want power, she wants to help others, and she wants to achieve the life she desires. (Mastercrafter dragonrider? Why not?) Determined and goal-oriented, Viiox believes strongly in growth, both for herself as an individual, and for others/society as a whole. As a result, she hates the traditional status quo. She is fairly rebellious, and dislikes the dragon ranking system greatly. She is pulled towards things that are new, different, unexpected, or nontraditional.

She can be a bit morbid, often describing her healer studies in gross detail, forgetting that not everyone wants to hear about that. She can sound very matter-of-fact and detached, as well, making it even more unnerving. She loves dragons more than anything, and wants to learn dragonhealing, but she also likes animals. And humans! Charismatic and friendly, Viiox likes people and is generally a social, outgoing person. She seems very laid back, as though she doesn't take anything seriously. Despite this, she can be very serious when it serves her, and knows how to get things done. She's hardly lazy, though this would surprise some, with strong determination and a sense of duty. She can be goofy and silly, at least on the surface, and enjoys cracking bad jokes that make others groan. Her most powerful tools are her playful grin and her sharp mind--the duality of (wo)man.

She can be suspicious of others, assuming that they will harm her at some point and hiding her true self from them. She feels sadness and pain, like everyone else, but she hides this out of fear of being seen as weak, and people abandoning her or using her as a result. She is resilient, but never talks about her feelings. She loves easily, but doesn't trust easily, and is prone to intense relationships. She is quick to take responsibility and slow to let go of guilt, but denies having such feelings. She is quick to tell others that everything is fine. She can’t deny being hotheaded, however--no one stands in her way or harms someone else without answering to her. With a surprisingly vicious temper, she holds grudges and gets revenge--though these usually just manifest as loud arguments.

It should be noted that she is very passionate and energetic--and often a bit weird about it. She can talk a mile a minute, and go on for hours, if you get her started. A bit overwhelming and certainly strange, she can be a bit of an acquired taste.


HISTORY
FAMILY:
-Father: N'il of Blue Dragon [Naeviil] - HRW
-Mother: Loxana of Green Dragon - HRW
-Sister: Oxna of Blue Dragon (+3 turns) - HRW
-Brother: V'nan (Vianaen) of Bronze Dragon (-1 turn) - HRW
-Sister: Xanaviia (-3 turns) - Semaca
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches Weyr
HISTORY: TW: violence
Viiox was born into an interesting situation--Golre's rule was well-established, and High Reaches was in an era of darkness. That said, Viiox's family had a rich rider history. Chromatics were in their blood, for several generations. Her parents were blue and green riders, both of which had chromatic-riding parents themselves. Her heritage is something she was proud of; but Golre's reign made that hard. Her parents were looked down on, treated like dirt. Some of the other children mocked her and her siblings for their rich heritage. As a youth, Viiox got into several fights with other young children over it. By the time she was a candidate, however, she'd mellowed out (slightly).

Shortly before Onyx became a candidate, her big sister, Oxna, Impressed to a lovely blue. Naturally, the Weyr hated her for it. She was seen as a failure, but Viiox never understood it. She despised her weyr, her home, for how they treated her family; but she knew she could always rely on family. She loved her family dearly, and was determined to make them proud--not by Impressing gold, but by Impressing chromatic. She was proud of her oldest sister, doted on her (slightly) younger brother, and adored her youngest sister.

Despite being treated poorly by the weyr, the candidates and their chromatic-riding family were close. Her family wanted the best for her, which meant Impressing a shiny, but...she didn't want that. Even if she hadn't been born into HR, she would have wanted to become a chromatic rider. She was so proud when her brother became a candidate, and at his first hatching, Impressed a bronze. The bronze was pompous, however--after being a loving brother, he was suddenly too good for his family. He basically disowned them, turning against them, mocking them, almost hating them. Viiox, who thought she could trust her family, even if she couldn't trust anyone else at HR, was devastated by the "loss" of her brother.

Viiox's trust issues would only increase, with the candidates constantly stabbing each other in the back. No one could be trusted; everyone would turn on you. No one treated candidates well, and they all wanted to step on each other to Impress gold/bronze. Anything, to be safe from the Weyr's ire. Politics continued, and Viiox was a ticking time bomb. The environment was chaotic and inconsistent; her family was treated poorly; and her brother had turned on them. It was no surprise that she got injured in a brawl, and subsequently kicked out of candidacy.

A fellow candidate had been picking on a greenweyrling, and Viiox wouldn't take that sitting down. She broke their nose, which never healed right, and they brought a knife out, giving her the scar just below her eyes. Viiox feels bad; the candidate was only 15, and Viiox was 17--they were much weaker than she was, and she feels, in retrospect, like a bit of a bully, despite her own injury. Both were dismissed from candidacy. It was just before Golre died, after Golre declared war on Fort, in Spring of '61. Viiox was only 17--she hadn't even been a candidate for long.

After the loss of her candidacy, she became a healer apprentice at the Weyr. She still dreamed of dragonriding, but wanted to be a dragonhealer. When Golre died, Viiox returned to candidacy at High Reaches. A turn after Golre's death, she Impressed to her brown flit, after finding his egg.

Semaca, after it was formed, was an area of interest to her. In 2765, she took her little sister, Xan, with her to Semaca, transferring as candidates. Viiox felt bad for leaving her family, but the opportunities and intrigue at Semaca were more alluring than the scars and wounds that High Reaches had left her with. She still keeps in contact with the rest of her family, other than her brother.

As a part time candidate, part time apprentice, she kept up with her healing studies as best she could. Often, she would simply help out the healers, waiting for her chance to Impress. She did not Impress, but continues to stand at clutches--even at other Weyrs. Xan, too, is a candidate by her side.

VIJR

BASICS

NAME: Vijr
BIRTHDATE Autumn 2762
AGE: 7 as of Winter 2769

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: sienna
FULL APPEARANCE: Vijr is awkward in appearance, all angles and edges. Despite his coloring, he is hardly handsome. His proportions are a bit odd, in a way that you can't quite place your finger on. Maybe his head is just a tad too big, his tail just a pinch too short, his brow just barely too wide. That said, his coloring is stunning. A rich, ruddy brown that could pass for red under the right lights is colored with swirls of a pale, almost-yellow tan. The contrast is stunning, as is the intricacies of his markings. Although more than a bit scrawny, Vijr is neither large nor small, in terms of length, for his color.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Flighty and unpredictable when it comes to most people, Vijr nonetheless adores Viiox. He is somehow 10x less forgetful and tumultuous when around her, and listens to what she says. Surprisingly, he does his job of ferrying Viiox's communications well, but good luck if anyone else wants him to do something! He becomes flustered and embarrassed around any female firelizards. He's a mercurial thing, prone to sudden mood shifts, but no matter how he's feeling, he's quite energetic and certainly scatterbrained.
