RAINE
Image
"People...change. For better or for worse."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Adopt for Genis
NAME: Raine
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/her/hers
ORIENTATION: If you have to ask, you don't need to know.

BIRTHDATE: Late Summer, 2744
AGE: 26 as of 2770
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Dragonrider
WING: Starfall

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Pale blonde, kept shoulder length
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'5", slender
PLAY-BY: Raine Sage (Tales of Symphonia)
FULL APPEARANCE: Raine is a lovely woman, with delicate features and large, clear blue eyes. Her build is slender, but she is stronger than she looks, with lean muscles maintained by a vigorous training schedule. She keeps her light blonde hair cut to just above her shoulders, so it can better fit under her riding helmet. She favors trousers and tunics in inexpensive colors, clothes that can easily be replaced.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
In another life, Raine might have become a Scribe or a Harper. She enjoys learning about many things, particularly history, and is always happy to lecture at great length about the things she knows, regardless of the interest of her audience. In this world, however, Raine is a dragonrider and she takes her duty seriously. She sets high expectations for herself and others and is quick to snap at riders who fail to live up to those expectations. She doesn't believe in coddling people and she doesn't care if she hurts any feelings. Pern is counting on them to keep it safe and Threadfall is no place for slacking off or stupidity. Her high expectations extend to her family, including her brother. She loves Genis and wishes the best for him, which is exactly why she'll push him to be the best he can.

Raine is a deeply pragmatic woman who believes sacrifices for the greater good are sometimes worth making and who tries to see the world as it is, not as she'd like it to be. While she does have her limits, she won't let a rigid set of moral ideals blind her to reality. She'll make the hard choices if called to and advocate for the best possible result, even if a few principles need to be compromised to get there. Raine remembers how High Reaches used to be and while she doesn't hate bronze or goldriders, she doesn't entirely trust the weyr to stay on its new path. She fears that High Reaches will someday return to the hierarchy of old and dislikes traditionalists.

Raine isn't inclined towards domestic duties. She is a particularly terrible cook, due partially to her inability to follow a recipe and her tendency to add fruit to everything. Raine also has a strong dislike of the water, due to nearly drowning as a child. She will always try to bathe her dragon in the shallowest part of the lake she can manage and doesn't linger after her own baths.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Kloitz: Father, greenrider (Died in battle)
Virginia: Mother, greenrider (Died in childbirth)
Kvar: Uncle
Genis: Younger brother, candidate
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches Weyr
HISTORY:
Raine was born at High Reaches to a pair of greenriders in the time of Golre. As a child, she knew nothing but Golre's High Reaches, where people like her parents were mistreated and discriminated against.

When she was six, Raine wandered too far into the lake and nearly drowned. Her father pulled her back out but she was left with a fear of water she never entirely outgrew.

Raine was ten turns old when her father died in battle. She never learned the details. She didn't need to. Raine knew that at High Reaches, greenriders were seen as disposable and she never doubted that his life had been thrown away carelessly, when more might have been done to keep him safe.

Only a few months later, Raine's mother died in childbirth. Raine's uncle, Kvar, and her newborn baby brother, Genis, were the only family Raine had left. Raine loved them both. She looked out for her much younger brother as best she could and reminisced with her uncle often about her lost parents. Raine continued to grow and study, some part of her always aware that everything she did meant less than the color of the dragon she would someday Impress.

Raine entered candidacy the day she turned fifteen. Before Raine Impressed, Golre went to war again against Fort. And this time, she was defeated. The weyr started to change for the better. Raine remained a candidate. Her parents had been riders and so would she.

In 2763, Raine decided to temporarily transfer to Fort. She was curious about the oldest weyr on Pern, whose riders had reformed her home. She would miss her family, but Macath's coming clutch presented a perfect opportunity to see it for herself.

At the hatching, Raine, like her parents before her, Impressed a green. She was proud to carry on their legacy even as she feared what being a greenrider could mean, if the traditionalists every again came to power. Most of all, Raine loved Spriggth from the moment the little green knocked her to the sands in her eagerness to meet her. Spriggth needed to learn to focus on the right things but she had a sharp mind and a good heart. She was quirky and endlessly curious and surprisingly clever. Raine was glad to be her rider.

When Raine graduated, she went right back to High Reaches. It was her family's home and she'd been apart from them long enough. And there she stayed, through all the turbulence and struggles and changes in leadership. She fought thread diligently and did her best to help her wing and she watched her brother grow up, teaching and guiding him as best she could.

Even when stolen eggs appeared on High Reaches' sands, Raine stayed. Leaving High Reaches would change nothing. It was her home and her family's. Besides, her brother was beginning candidacy and taking a principled stand wasn't worth missing seeing him someday Impress.

SpriggthImage
BASICS

Name: Spriggth (Sprig-th)
BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2763
AGE: 7 as of Early Spring 2770

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: No
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1

APPEARANCE
Color: Green
Hex Code: #44c8a8
Length: 26ft
Height: 6.5ft
Wingspan: 40ft

FULL APPEARANCE: Spriggth should be called spring-th because she is nothing if not a bouncy little loving green. She's light on her feet and strangely adept at getting into trouble and places she shouldn't be. Little shelf where flits hide things? She's up there looting. She's got a narrow face and a bounce in her step. She is a light mint green all over, with the backs of her wingsails a more seafoam color. Her face has some slightly darker marks, one over the nose like a bandage, and little bits going up her headknobs. The same color covers her forefeet like gloves with little hash marks on her arms. Her favorite feature is her spots: evergreen spots that go up her left hind leg and over the inside of both wingsails like the craters on a moon. She loves them.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Spriggth is a quirky little green who likes to solve puzzles and get into trouble. Her curiosity is boundless, and she would probably try to follow furbeasts into their burrows if she thought she could fit. She is quite good at finding rather abstract solutions to problems, thinking significantly more outside the box than Rolth. If you need to distract her for a while, give her some wooden blocks and tell her to fit them into any shape, and she'll be happy to sit and play with toys until she's gotten a solution that fits her. She also likes telling stories, even if she really has no idea how to tell a good story.

To her human, Spriggth is their friend. She'll lounge around with them and encourage them to cut lessons and go find something that they would rather study. After all, it's easier to ask forgiveness instead of permission! Spriggth also loves the ladies. She's not shy about it, even if complimenting humans sounds silly. She's just as likely to chase greens as she is to rise herself, and if no ladies are chasing her, then all those males can sod off! They're not good enough for her. She's also got a huge squish on Aaneth, and Spriggth is a massive dorky romantic at heart. She would love to travel as well, and will probably volunteer as a search dragon as soon as possible.

Voice: Spriggth sounds Australian southern. Very southern. But her voice is chipper and cheery, even when she's upset.
