OCCUPATION: Laborer (furniture construction), Bluerider, Wingsecond
WING: Chopin Squad

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Bald
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 7’0, muscular
FULL APPEARANCE:

Barold is a pretty big guy. He usually wears looser clothing that he has learned to make himself from his parents, but if he can get away with not wearing a shirt, he won’t wear one. He started losing his hair a bit younger than most so he just started donning hats as needed. He’s pretty buff from his lifetime of hauling wood and building materials around, and he does his best to keep himself in good physical shape.

While he comes from a rough and tumble lifestyle, he values being able to clean himself up and keep himself presentable as much as he can. He doesn’t object to getting dirty, but will always wait until he’s completely done with work before cleaning himself off.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:

Barold is incredibly self sufficient, and will always encourage others to be self sufficient as well. He doesn’t like relying entirely on others and hates not having at least some input on things happening around him. Of course this is kept down at a level he can understand, as he doesn’t feel comfortable enough about chiming in on intra-weyr politics. However, if it’s a topic involving workloads or his areas of expertise, he will most certainly make his stance known. He’s thankfully tactful enough to not be a jerk about it, and will try to hear others out before making sweeping accusations about incompetence. Unfortunately, he can still be oblivious to the feelings of others if he's too deep in his own head, and can be kind of a jerk without meaning to be. He does his best to be as good of a leader as possible but isn’t afraid to admit that he’s messed up if he has. It just takes someone speaking up about it to get him to admit it.

Despite all this, Barold is kindhearted and will do his best to help others around him. He loves kids and will do what he can to present himself as a reasonable authority figure. He wants to start a family one day, but he feels very little connection with people on a romantic level. But he feels it’s fine, as long as he can do good work and leave an impression on the weyr he works in.

HISTORY
FAMILY:

Holstal - ( Father, Tannercrafter )
Jessuni - ( Mother, Tailorcrafter )
Norrick - ( Younger brother, Tannercrafter )

BIRTHPLACE: Minor hold
HISTORY:

Holstal and Jessuni started life in a minor Hold near Benden. They worked hard and eventually had Barold. They were a happy family, and they were overjoyed to see Barold was taking a serious interest in the crafts they had presented him. In truth, they were glad, as they had wanted to avoid letting him be a Candidate. Dragons and by extension whers were bad news. Mostly because Holdstal's eldest brother and dragon made each other arrogant and kept arrogant company. Both riders and dragons looked down on them as people and a couple, which only strained the relationships Holstal and his brother had. They bullied non-riders when they could get away with it, and generally got away with it so long as it was kept outside the weyrs.

However, as things began to heat up between the Weyrs, one of Holstar’s less obnoxious younger brothers, a dragonrider at Ista Weyr, told them they had positions opening up at their Weyr. While they did want to avoid dragons if possible, they did acknowledge that a weyr was arguably more safe than a minor hold out in the open. So with hesitance, they moved there with 5 turn old Barold on tow. At least they would get along with this relative, and be further away from the ones that they could not stand.

Life wasn’t too bad though. Barold showed little interest in dragons for a good long while. While he appreciated them, he also just never thought of riding one. Once he started to learn how to make furniture, his brother Norrick was born. Unfortunately, due to busy schedules, they had to release him into the Creche for the most part. Other than that though, the little family did their best to keep close enough with most of the child care being done by the Crecheworkers.

Barold would spend his days studying and working, learning to make serviceable furniture and doing it well. Their family was all about the quality of their craft and were proud of it. However, during this time, he couldn’t help but be curious about dragons. He had a friend who was a bit younger who was looking to get a wher after he graduated, and that only spurred his curiosity. And while he felt accomplished upon walking the tables, he still couldn’t help but gravitate towards candidacy. Furniture makers were needed, yes but it wasn’t like he needed to make a new table or chair every day. So he decided to try his hand at Candidacy. If he aged out, he wouldn’t need to worry about his future, after all! So he consulted his uncle, and it was found he had the potential thanks to the riders in his family tree. Of course nothing was assured, so his accepting attitude towards Cadidacy was more than acceptable.

And so he poured himself into his studies when he wasn’t working on furniture for the weyr. Juggling things was a little rough, but his family encouraged him and were sure to attend when he did stand for any clutch. Spending time around dragons and dragonriders had helped soften their view on the species as a whole. While they didn’t trust dragons completely and utterly, they were glad Barold was wanting to expand his interests elsewhere. Even if they were worried about the quality of his woodworking. And while he himself didn’t hold much faith in actually Impressing, life had a way of surprising him.

He was close to aging out, almost reaching his 25th turn. But a large clutch with more than a dozen eggs revealed a blue that immediately run to him the second his feet were on the ground. Impacth was a happy blue, very eager and drawn to Barold’s energy. And life was rough sometimes since balancing work and tending to a dragon was a lot. Barold however, was stubborn and refused to give up on his responsibilities. And before he knew it, 6 turns had passed. Norrick had gone the path of his father and had taken up tanning, and the family was overjoyed when he finally graduated. However, it was around this time that they heard that Semeca Weyr was in need of assistance. So the family gladly let Barold go, as they weren't sure about taxing Impacth so much. Regardless, they had work to do on the mainland anyway. There was honest work to be done and he were going to do what he could to help. Though, he did what he could, and proved that he was capable of leadership. He humbly accepted the position of wingsecond, and promised to continue to provide support and encouragement to the rest of the squad no matter what.

Impacth

BASICS

NAME: Impacth
BIRTHDATE Summer 2763
AGE: 6 as of Late Summer 2769

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 34 ft
HEIGHT: 8.45 ft
WINGSPAN: 55 ft
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE:#83C5E5
FULL APPEARANCE:

Impacth is a mess of blue and patterns. His wingsails are like if an artist took a brush full of paint and decided to violently shake it around a canvas. His head is darker than his main body, with a curling pattern coming down past his headknobs. His front paws look as though he is wearing socks, with a dot denoting the point between his claws and his elbow. His hind flanks have a garter like pattern with a crescent shaped mark on his thigh. He has similar looking ‘sock’ markings coming up to his first back joint.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:

Impacth is about as subtle as someone tripping down stairs. A brash and easily excited blue, he likes to stick his snout where it doesn’t belong, and will fuss if he’s pushed away. But it’s all only because he’s curious about his surroundings, and only wants to help as much as he can. He follows his rider’s lead most of the time, often too distracted with the nearest interesting thing to really put too much thought into things. Some consider him a hindrance but when focused, he can work just as hard as any dragon.

To his rider, Impacth is a breath of fresh air. He likes to focus on the big picture, not fretting over details if they’re not THAT important. He has simple tastes and will appreciate things as they are, be it a meal or a pretty looking table. He prefers functionality to form, and doesn’t always see why the little details, be it in furniture or in plans, are needed.
