Candidate Lotor [RFR]

L O T O R

Don't expect me to lose any sleep over it.

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: retire Lotor, adopt dragon
NAME: Lotor
GENDER: male
PRONOUNS: he/him/his
ORIENTATION: Is 'pomposity' an orientation?

BIRTHDATE: Late Fall 2747
AGE: twenty-one as of Early Winter 2768
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: candidate, political refugee
WING: wait for it

APPEARANCE
EYES: green
HAIR: light blonde, left long and unbound
HEIGHT AND BUILD: six feet and six inches, built lithe and powerful
PLAY-BY: Prince Lotor from Voltron: Legendary Defender
FULL APPEARANCE:

Lotor looks good, and he knows it. He is long and lithe, more elegant than lanky, and he moves with the kind of cultivated grace one can only achieve by knowing one's own body. He is as vain as a Lady's Heir when it comes to his hair, which he leaves long and unbound. It's a point of pride, for him, that he always look very refined and proper. He favors dark colors and swishy coats that emphasis his powerful figure.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: The first thing you may notice about Lotor is that he is both patient and focused. He seems unflappable when it comes to things that traditionalists would find sticking points - women on bronze? Very good. New colors? All is well. Cross Impression? Dragons are never wrong about their riders. He comes off as very progressive, at first.

His biases are buried a little deeper than that, and come from what he considers to be character flaws. These so-called 'character flaws' might be as mortal a sin as cruelty, or as mild an infraction as ignorance. He is vindictive when it comes to people he deems unworthy, preferring to punish them through spite.

For all his flaws, though, Lotor is a strategist. A little too cocky to be properly called brilliant, he bluffs his way through what he can't back up. He rarely confirms his beliefs, and so fits in with a number of groups with varying world views. At first. There will come a time when he cannot abide foolishness, and he will turn on those once considered allies.

He has a soft side, or what passes for a soft side, anyways, for smithcrafters. Anyone with the ability to take raw material and turn it into something both beautiful and useful is worthy of regard and respect. While this describes many forms of crafting, it is the smiths that capture his attention.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Estranged, particularly since the balance of power shifted at Benden.
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: none
BIRTHPLACE: Benden Weyr
HISTORY:

Lotor was born to a bronze rider and his crafter weyrmate at Benden Weyr. His father thrived in the war between the weyrs, finding the cause of the conflict to be good and just. Benden was right, and so they had to prove that to the incorrect usurpers. It didn't matter to him that he was killing people whose only crime was to have a different opinion, so long as his opinion was the correct one to have.

Despite being primarily known as his father's son, due to his notoriety, Lotor prefers to acknowledge only his mother's side of the family. They were, to his knowledge, smiths of various specialties, and he has always held some sort of fascination for the craft itself. His plans to become a smith himself - glass smith, as befitted his fluid and adaptable learning style - were derailed when it became clear that being his father's son would be a detriment. His father was one of the upper echelon of Benden, having retained his high status after the armistice was declared. Unknown to Lotor, he threatened the smithcrafters with sanctions if they should accept his son.

Since he had no desire to pursue another avenue of crafting - which he might have been very good at any number of things - Lotor remained at the weyr, and became a candidate at the appropriate age. He distanced himself from his parents, and stood at every clutch, no matter how odd the circumstances surrounding them.

He was offered a fire lizard egg following his failure at the Starfall clutch, a gift from someone who turned out to be a member of his extended family on his mother's side. The largish egg hatched a spotted blue, and Sincline joined Lotor. Despite being proven attractive to dragonkind, Lotor was left standing until a Fortian bronze rider revealed Benden's hidden queen. The aftermath left Benden unstable, with sanctions placed on Lotor's home by the Conclave of Weyrs. The worst of it came when the leadership was toppled.

Lotor's father turned out to be one of the bronze riders holding Alayna and Wyzeth hostage. He was stripped of every rank and privilege except the continued existence of his dragon, because even Majima would not condone forcing someone dragonless as a punishment.

Without a guarantee that this change would allow him to continue Standing, Lotor hopped a ride to Semaca. Things are not more stable at Semaca, as he hoped they would be. Clutches are infrequent, chores are more involved, and half the weyr was recently destroyed by flooding.

IC Information
What type of candidate is your character: Dragon

What color/s does your character want?: Bronze, of course. Big, strong, and powerful enough to choose his own course.
Does your character have any personality preferences or concerns?: Lotor is tired of feeling like he has no control over his life.
Does your character have any other preferences or concerns?: He could, potentially, be convinced that a brown is big enough, or a unique/mutation might give him what he wants. But he mostly wants feel like he deserves to go on a power trip.

OOC Information
If your character is a dual candidate IC, do you have a strong preference on whether they Impress dragon or wher?: not applicable, not dual

What color(s) are you willing for your character to impress to?: I will reiterate my noted love of chromatics, with a tagline that I prefer good plots over all else.
Do you have any personality preferences or concerns?: He wants PHENOMENAL COSMIC POWER, but I prefer that he should have to learn, and adjust, and expand his world-view because of his dragon. Whether that's in a good way or a bad way is up to y'all.
Do you have any other preferences or concerns?: make his life difficult ((but, like, in an interesting way))
Why do you think these choice/s would be a good fit?: What canonically happened to my Trash Son was a fxkening crime.

Do you have any preferences about the conditions of your character’s impression?: He deserves better than canon, that's all.
Are you alright with your character getting hurt? What injury level is acceptable/what should be avoided?: make him dizzy, make him ill, but don't kill him
Is there anything you will ABSOLUTELY NOT accept?: *disjointed muttering about character arcs*

BASICS

NAME: Sincline
BIRTHDATE Late Fall 2765
AGE: three as of Early Spring 2769

APPEARANCE
SIZE: Large
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #1F195C
FULL APPEARANCE: Sincline is a very pretty fire lizard. He is a lovely shade of saturated blue for most of his body, broken up only by circular markings along his sides. These instances of lighter blue break up his silhouette so that's harder to tell at a distance how big he is.

Which is large. Sincline has a powerful presence, from his overly whippy tail to his short neck. His confirmation is not particularly good, but he doesn't seem to mind.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Monster. Disgrace. Abomination. Sincline gets what he wants by force, and woe betide those who would deny him what he most desires. He is very nearly a true mirror of his person, without the veneer of civilization that Lotor sports. There is no offense small enough to avoid his wrath, and no offering placating enough to mollify him. His only redeeming quality is that he listens to Lotor more often than he does not. That's about it. He is not a particularly convenient fire lizard, but Lotor will not hear complaints about him.

-Why doesn't Lotor acknowledge both families? If his parents are weyrmated, it's pretty obvious who his father is and you haven't established their relationship being strained.

-Just because Lotor's father has rank at Benden does not mean he's powerful enough to threaten the smiths, who live at a different crafthall with their own hierarchy. There is also no reason he couldn't train as a smith and still be a candidate and stay at the weyr. Many weyrkids do so. Glass-smithing doesn't require a fluid learning style more than any other type of smithing does.

-Were Lotor's father directly involved in the Alayna affair, Majima would absolutely have been willing to kill father's dragon- or father himself. I suggest moving him to another weyr, killing him off or having him having known but not been directly involved.

-Sincline can be a grumpy ill-tempered flit but not many are going to be intimidated by a firelizard, regardless of temperament.
