Kas of Garnet Vaheoth

KAS

With a thousand lies and a good disguise
Hit 'em right between the eyes, hit 'em right between the eyes
When you walk away, nothing more to say, see the lightning in your eyes
See 'em running for their lives

-You're Gonna Go Far Kid, by The Offspring


BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire (Vaheoth adopt, of course, though)
NAME: Kas (Kasrin)
GENDER: Male, cis
PRONOUNS: he/him/his
ORIENTATION: Bisexual, technically, but like 90% men. Poly.

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2743
AGE: 28 as of Early Fall 2771
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr (if not: Fort, but will transfer very soon)
OCCUPATION: Wingrider
WING: Minuet Wing (when at Semaca)

APPEARANCE
EYES: Light brown
HAIR: Brown, worn down, reaching nearly mid-back.
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'2"
PLAY-BY: art by insec-sess
FULL APPEARANCE: At 6'2", Kas is on the taller side for a cis man, but by no means towering. Slender, with a narrow form, he nonetheless enjoys athletic pursuits (and physical training, "just in case"). As a result, he is stronger than his lean, elegant form would suggest. Handsome, certainly, with a pretty face and lovely hair. Medium-long, it has a bit of a wave, and is a rich brown in color. Kas is attractive, and he knows it. He usually sports a charming smile, carefully crafted to be disarming to others. Standing with confidence, he has a strong, sturdy gait and good posture. Pretty boy extraordinaire, he plays up his naturally attractive features with a good sense of fashion and flattering clothing. He tends to wear expensive, fancy clothing.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Frivolous and foppish in presentation, this man seems a bit slow and superficial at first glance. The truth is that, while Kas seems carefree--even indulgent and vain--there is an edge beneath the surface that he doesn't try to hide. A glint in his eye, a hint of his smile, a way of phrasing things so that you know just who is in charge. While his true ambitions are hidden, many realize there is more to this man than what is immediately evident. He seems charming and charismatic, but perhaps a bit too much so. Someone would get the impression that if they crossed him...it would end poorly for them.

One thing is certain: Kas is far too confident. He acts cocky, very sure of himself. He tries not to underestimate others, however--he suspects most people are better than they let on. He's often surprised when someone is easier to manipulate than he imagined, and suspicious of what game they're playing. In general, Kas is socially cautious and mistrusting, even edging on paranoid in some cases. He'd stab many people in the back who think he is their friend--why should he let them do the same to him? He does trust, eventually, but his suspicions make it difficult. Kas hungers for power, rank, and money (he's a little materialistic when it comes to luxury), but dislikes others who have those. He is rebellious in nature, disliking authority, but prefers to act in hidden ways. He's got the long game in mind, and will bite his tongue with ease, knowing that someday, he'll be in charge. He knows when to push, when not to. Ambitious and ruthless, Kas does what needs to be done, seeking to gain control over each situation. In the meantime, before he's in charge, he will try to use those in power--even at their detriment. He plays by the rules, but knows when he can bend them...and when he can't. In the future, he'll make his own rules, so he'll play along for now.

As a thrillseeker, Kas requires things to be exciting and challenging. If you aren't interesting enough, he'll get bored. Once he's hooked, he will be loyal, no matter what; but the initial attraction of intrigue must be there. He also might let you THINK he's in your camp, when he isn't. Similarly, Kas is king of hyperbole. Theatrical and dramatic, Kas will exaggerate for his own amusement. His casual, devil-may-care attitude mostly hides his ambitious, cutthroat edge. Mostly. Socially, he is willing to step on (almost) anyone to get to the top. He uses and manipulates others, a natural conman with a silver tongue. You need to succeed at others' detriment, after all--it's kill or be killed. Despite having an aggressive streak, most people think he is passive. He wants people to think it's their own idea, and underestimate him, after all. Kas is intelligent, with a sharp, clever mind. He's resourceful as well as perceptive--always watching, waiting, sniffing out weakness. He uses anything to his advantage--his appearance (he's a flirt), among other things. He almost enjoys manipulating and messing with others. Still, he's a heartbreaker by nature, afraid of commitment. Settling down with his Weyrmate in the way that he did was odd for him. He can be protective of his loved ones, if someone can break through his walls--even affectionate, loving, and chivalrous. His possessive traits don't mean that he's above sharing--he just doesn't take kindly to those who mistreat HIS people.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
-Mother: Mikase
-Father: Rinaros
-Siblings: Mikros (M, +2), Rinasen (M, +1), Karos (F, -2), Inase (F, -4), Romikas (F, -5), Asekinas (M, -7)
-Best Buddy: Jiaryai of [Unnamed Dragon]
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Dragonless [Unnamed]
BIRTHPLACE: Minor hold
HISTORY: Kasrin was born into a large yet poor family at a minor hold under the thumb of a somewhat corrupt holder. At a young age, he resented his family for their station, only to later realize how unreasonable that was. It wasn't their fault they were nothing more than drudges--it was the holders' faults, for treating unskilled labor so poorly, for giving his family no power. No, it was those born into power that were the real problem, and with a difficult childhood filled with hard work and struggle, Kasrin quickly gained quite a bit of resentment towards those born into their power. As a result, he still hates Lord Holders and even queens and bronzes--but mostly just at more traditional weyrs, where that power matters, and only if they seem corrupt with their power.

Not that Kas hated power, though, oh no. He sought power from a young age, seeking to rise in rank until he had control over everything around him. He realized early on that lofty ideals and ambitions got you nowhere, not without something concrete to work with. His main tool was manipulating others. Subtly, slowly, he'd set the scene and twist the scenario to get what he wanted. But in order to get far, he'd need a skill. Not to mention, his desire to get away from his roots, the hellhole he'd been raised in. He would move forward and never look back, barely contacting his family as he aged. He didn't find a craft that suited him, however, instead choosing to join a trader caravan. He met a young girl around his age, both only 16 at the time. Despite their similar ages, Jiaryai acted like a tired older sister--or even a mother--despite teasing him endlessly. She babied him in a lot of ways, but he tolerated it for her. Jiaryai was more of a guard for the caravan, while Kas quickly rose to selling products directly.

Most of the time, they ripped off rich people who were looking for one of a kind masterwork pieces. Eventually, they turned their eyes to the skies; and anything Kas wanted, he would get. He wanted a dragon. They left the caravan without looking back. Naturally, they'd avoid High Reaches Weyr--with Golre so recent, it would be best to Impress somewhere with less of a rocky past. They'd transfer between Weyrs for hatchings, but they agreed that there was a safer option. Even if the Weyr had irritating political views about colors and rank, as far as Kas was concerned, it was a good option for them.

To Fort Weyr they went, and both were searched as candidates. Despite Fort's views, they enjoyed their time there, though Kas tried to manipulate situations to his benefit. He'd wait to Impress, and then...he'd make his move. Jiaryai Impressed at Fort earlier than he did. Kas hated the Benden bronzes with a passion, but was sickened that a queen would use her flight to take them out. In some ways, he could respect it--removing a threat when emotions were high, making sure things were in her favor. That said, it was needless and brought ruin to Nornth and her rider. Not to mention, it was cruel to murder dragons, leaving their poor dragonless behind...

Nornth's hatching, as a result, had no touching. At the hatching, which took forever, the dragons seemed confused, lost, afraid. They all took too long to Impress, which concerned Kas. Naturally, it was Nornth's fault--the awful tyrant! When Vaheoth finally hatched--almost last--she dragged herself towards the candidates, exhausted. She took a break, before she finally reached Kas. Kas, I'm so tired... but can we wait for Apocryth? I would like to go over with him. Kas knew from that moment that he would never be alone, and that his sharp mind would be matched by his dragon's. They waited for Apocryth, of course, and then...Kas's training began.

For her maiden flight, Vaheoth rose early. To his surprise, she didn't pick Apocryth, or even any other dragon she knew well. Instead, she chose an unassuming, sweet blue. Kas never expected that the first time he experienced flightlust, he would end up in his soulmate's bed. About the same age, the young bluerider shared Kas's ambitions and wits. To his thrill and dismay, Kas fell in love. He was a softer man around the bluerider, and together, they were a force of nature. Kas moved into a weyr with his weyrmate. Just before winter of 2769 started, however...the bluerider rose to fight thread. His dragon sustained severe injuries, and managed to get the rider to the Weyr, before collapsing. Both were in critical condition, but the blue didn't survive the night. Despite his lover's sudden change--a hollow, empty man--Kas remained by his side. This surprised many, given Kas's nature, but he refused to leave his love behind, no matter how distant the dragonless grew.

He'd set up connections at Fort, but he left it all behind. His weyrmate struggled with the memories attached to the Weyr, so he left with Kas and Jia. The trio made their way to Semaca, which Kas thought was more interesting anyways. He could get behind Semacan politics, and found the climate lovely. The move was difficult for his weyrmate, as it was a mere month after his dragon's loss, but he seemed to do a bit better in the mild temperatures of Semaca. Some days are harder than others, but Kas will do anything for his mate.

UPDATES
  • Winter 2770: Kas meets Dirys. Cute boy.
  • Fall 2771, Threadfall: An unexpected gust of wind blows a piece of firestone right into Kas’ face, leaving him with a cut on his nose. Apparently, according to her dragon, Anoni dropped it.

VAHEOTH
Image


BASICS

NAME: Vaheoth
BIRTHDATE Early Winter 2767 [Paladins Weyrling]
AGE: 2 as of Early Winter 2769

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 35 ft
HEIGHT: 8.75 ft
WINGSPAN: 52.5 ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #9992a0
FULL APPEARANCE: Vaheoth is not the largest garnet, and she doesn't have to be. She's soft, with bright eyes and a gorgeous form. She is delicate, built like something straight out of a fairy tale. She is lean and petite, with a whip-like tail and a narrow face. She is a gorgeous color, two sharp shades together. Her base color is a soft, pale lavender that almost looks like moonlight. The dark, royal purple that colors the backs of her wingsails is stunning. The same color crawls over her face and runs down her neck like brush strokes. It connects to a great swirl over her sides that slides down to her forelegs like some ceremonial gauntlets. Then it spreads from her tail in large waves, never fully connecting to the brushes on her sides.

Image

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Endlessly resourceful and sharp as a blade, Vaheoth is prone to getting swept up in the details. She is very clever, with a 5 day memory instead of the standard 3 day. Her mind is her best asset, and she is not above using it to get others to do her bidding. She enjoys figuring out the world, and planning for the best way for herself and her own to be successful. While she herself does not want the spotlight, she will strive to open the way for those around her. She is more interested in the chase, the pursuit of knowledge and chasing the next interesting thing. It is very easy for her to get consumed by this chase, and will need to be pulled back to reality often.

To her rider, Vaheoth is here to make them be better. Her love may be unconditional but she will make sure they don't get into the wrong sort of mistakes. Or she will try. She wants them to be the one in the spotlight. She wants them to be getting praised. As long as she has her pursuits, she will be fine. That said, she has no problem manipulating others to get what she wants or needs, and that includes potential candidates if she is ever send on Search. She is very close to Apocryth, but she and Kalzeoth get along more than they would like.

For as gorgeous as she is, Vaheoth sounds ancient, like some being of shadow.

Egg: Broken Heart
Class: Paladins
Inspiration: Haggar/[Spoilers]
Info: I told you to settle down, but that might just help your chances.
A medium-sized, gray egg.
Dam: Gold Nornth
Sire: Steel Anderoth
Number: Hatched and Impressed 14 out of 15.
Details: The hatching was slow and wrong, with each dragon confused, afraid, and/or drained, from the lack of a touching. It took forever, but finally, Vaheoth hatched, and after resting out of exhaustion, she Impressed to Kas, but insisted on waiting for Apocryth to hatch.
Location: Fort Weyr

Image

BIRTHDATE Late Spring 2770
AGE: Hatchling as of Late Spring 2770

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #ff1157
FULL APPEARANCE: Little Lady is lithe and elegant, but large for her size; she was handsome, with lovely ruby markings. She looks every bit the lady, beautiful and regal in her bearings.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Vicious, Little Lady doesn't care if she accidentally hurts someone when going after what she wants. And if she wants it, she will have it.

She can be pleasant if she wants, but usually tries to get her way by brute force.
