Rhaenys of White Cosmiath

RHAENYS OF WHITE COSMIATH
Image
"For the weyr and the weyrleader."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire character, adopt dragon
NAME: Rhaenys, just Rhaenys. Nicknames are unprofessional and female honorifics confuse wingmates' expectations
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Traditional. What- you didn't mean political orientation?

BIRTHDATE: Late Winter 2753
AGE: 17 as of 2771
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wingrider
WING: Daylight Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Light brown
HAIR: Black, never worn down
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'3, average
PLAY-BY: Azula (Avatar)
FULL APPEARANCE: For a teenaged girl of decidedly below average height, Rhaenys cuts a surprisingly imposing figure. She never leaves the weyr without her hair pinned in a severe bun. Her riding leathers are always neatly pressed and spotlessly clean. Her gaze is direct and sharp and she holds herself as straight and tall as any hold guard, making the most of the inches she does has. Rhaenys' expressions are disciplined and she rarely appears to be particularly intimidated or happy or...much of anything really, beyond professionally serious or occasionally wryly amused.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Rhaenys is a rider in the tradition of old. She is a dutiful, professional, ideologically rigid young woman who takes herself, her job and the ways of the weyr seriously. She deeply feels the legacy of all the riders who came before and will come after her and does her best to live up to her place in the dragonrider tradition. She doesn't have a lot of patience for fun or games or jokes. Rhaenys is not particular good at relating to others. This doesn't trouble her. She enjoys her own company and Cosmiath provides sufficient social interaction. Rhaenys is uptight and considers that a virtue, not a vice. What sense of humor she does have is wry and subtle and easily mistaken for her typical self-seriousness.

Rhaenys is not a woman given to self-doubt. While she isn't the sort to boast, she is confident to the point of arrogance and trusts in her own abilities and dedication to see her through pretty much anything. Rhaenys does not make back-up plans, because to make a back-up plan requires acknowledging the possibility of failure, if only to herself. Doubt leads to hesitation and hesitation leads to mistakes after all. Rhaenys is not at all aware of her own weakness or shortcomings and considers even her personal failings the superior way to be and live.

Rhaenys believes the old ways are the best ways, the product of generations of riders and weyrfolk striving to build something greater than themselves. The rights of an individual to freedom must come second to the needs of the weyr and Pern. Rhaenys acknowledges the impossibility of stopping garnets from hatching or bronzes from Impressing women and doesn't oppose the existence of unconventional pairs. Dragons will do what they will and that is part of the old ways too. But that doesn't mean all traditions need to fall by the wayside. A weyr should be led by a man and a woman, preferably on bronze and gold respectively, to ensure a balance of perspectives while keeping power concentrated in few enough hands to allow it to be wielded effectively. Wings should be led by bronzes and browns, whose high position in the draconic hierarchy naturally promotes obedience and respect from other dragons. That doesn't mean Rhaenys believes that bronzeriders are inherently superior, just that struggling against facts of nature will always be inferior to using dragons' natural instincts to strengthen wing and weyr, even at the cost of individual ambitions. The draconic hierarchy is neither right nor wrong in her eyes. It simply is.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Rider parents
Various half-siblings on both sides
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Igen Weyr
HISTORY: Rhaenys was born to rider parents at Igen Weyr. Like many weyrbred children, she was raised in the creche, with only sporadic contact with either parent and no particularly close ties to any of her half-siblings. From as soon as she was old enough to understand, Rhaenys considered herself first and foremost a child of the weyr. Her lack of close family connections didn't bother her, when she had creche workers to care for her, fellow weyrbrats to play with her and countless weyrfolk, riders and handlers to consider her people.

When Rhaenys came of apprenticing age, she declined to study a craft. Rhaenys intended to become a rider and to apprentice would be to implicitly admit she might not succeed. While she was aware Impression wasn't something she could control, she never doubted she would be chosen. She would devote her life to preparing to be a rider and ensure no candidate was better qualified.

Rhaenys entered candidacy the day she turned 15. She Impressed promptly at her first hatching to a white named Cosmiath. While some part of Rhaenys might have hoped for gold, she knew that dragons never chose wrong and it was an honor to Impress any dragon. She walked off the stands with her head held high and her pride unbent.

Cosmiath wasn't the sort of dragon most would have guessed would choose the self-serious Rhaenys. He delighted in teasing his new rider, constantly waltzed in and out of trouble and rarely treated their leaders with the respect they deserved. But he was also capable and reliable when he needed to be and Rhaenys wasn't the sort to question things that simply were. They had Impressed. He was her dragon. That meant he was the right dragon and she could have no partner she was better suited for.

Rhaenys and Cosmiath had a mostly successful weyrlinghood, marred only by a few of Cosmiath's pranks getting out of hand. But something was troubling Rhaenys. Igen was not the liberal bastion of High Reaches, Semaca or Telgar, but even it was changed from the weyr she heard about in old Harpers tales, with greenriders leading wings and female brown and bronzeriders serving as Weyrleaders. It was the wrong way and as a newly graduated white rider, Rhaenys had neither the power nor the right to try to stop it.

And then she heard of Z'osh, who had seen his own weyr spiraling into chaos and rather than stand helplessly by, had reacted. He had removed an unfit weyrwoman, was seeking a new, more proper goldrider and opening his weyr to sympathetic riders. Rhaenys requested transfer immediately. At Fort, she would be able to truly live in the old ways. If Z'osh succeeded, he would be a hero and the example Pern needed that the new ways were not the inevitable march of a progress but a choice they could choose not to make.

She tries not to dwell on the grounding of female bronzeriders and garnetriders. It mildly troubles her, but it isn't her place to question the weyrleader's choices. The weyr must be led by one weyrleader and one weyrwoman.

COSMIATH

Image

BASICS

NAME: Cosmiath
BIRTHDATE Summer 2769
AGE: 2 as of 2771

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 28ft
HEIGHT: 7ft
WINGSPAN: 40ft
COLOR: White
HEX CODE: #7c7c7c
FULL APPEARANCE:
Cosmiath is a simple study in greyscale gradients.

His slim but strong body starts out white on his head, neck and the front top edges of the back of his wings; the stark colour fades to a soft storm grey, which gradually grew darker the further it travelled, until even his tail forks - and the majority of his wings down to its wingtips - appeared evenly coated in black. Basically, Cosmiath looked like he’d been very carefully dip-dyed in a dragon-sized vat filled with grey and black ink.

The same colour gradient is mirrored on his wing ‘arm’ and ‘finger’ bones - fading to white up his ‘arms’ from the grey shoulders - only to reverse - and from there, continued darkening from the white ‘palms’ out along the ‘finger’ bones into the black wingtips. And if you look very carefully, an vaguely white ‘sock’ can be discovered on his left hind foot.

The true masterpiece of Cosmiath’s otherwise simple appearance, however, are his utterly stunning wings.

A jaw-dropping vista of starlit cosmos rendered in greyscale, Cosmiath’s incredible wingsails seemed to be an open window to all the endless beauty of space.
Nebulous ‘clouds’ appeared to go on and on forever, interrupted only by his wing bones; and lit with the ‘light’ of a multitude of different-sized stars scattered across the canvas of his wingsails. Cosmiath cuts a stunning figure, and he knows it!
PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:

Cosmiath is a sassy, snarky, mischievous creature of a dragon.

Occasionally called ‘Trouble with a capital T’, the white probably wouldn’t be above poking fun at others or causing trouble whenever and wherever he wants (mostly with either the traditionalists & non-traditionalists groups, or really just being a troublemaker in general). He can land himself in hot water with authority sometimes just by behaving like a snarky young adult!

Cosmiath loves to play pranks on people, especially to those who probably deserved it (or to those who “seriously need to lighten up!” because they can’t be serious or sad and gloomy all the time), whenever he can get away with it.

Mischievous tendencies aside, Cosmiath is an intelligent dragon - he won’t put up with any shards from anyone, especially the dumb or dangerous kind!

He is also an affectionate Sassy Best Friend to his rider, and he would likely make a great Searchdragon.

Cosmiath can be trusted with some responsibility, though to him respect has to be earned. Never mind that he’s ‘only’ a white - respect is still earned!


Voice: The sound of eternity. Waves on the shore, the constant shine of the stars in the sky, the silent chaos of space; the magical ephemerally shifting dreamscape of dreams. Winter nights and summer days. Waterfalls and rushing streams. Sound and silence. All these different things, and yet all the same feeling, the same sound. One can almost practically hear and feel the history of all time and space being told in this echoing mindvoice. What sounds like forever? If it could be distilled to only one sound, only one dragon, it would probably be Cosmiath. His mindvoice sounds like Cosmiath has seen it all, past, present and future, and survived to tell the tale. That doesn’t stop him from speaking like/using the speech of a very snarky & sassy young adult though!

AMICUS

Image

BASICS

NAME: Emiel
BIRTHDATE Spring 2768
AGE: 3 as of 2771

APPEARANCE
COLOR: White
FULL APPEARANCE: Amicus is undoubtedly a black white, with a lighter color showing only on his wings, face, feet and tail. He is small in size, with a bit of a round belly from his tendency to overeat no matter how Rhaenys tries to limit his food intake.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY/HISTORY: When Rhaenys purchased Amicus' egg, she hoped to hatch a firelizard whose Impression would help prepare her for her dragon yet to come and who would remain her steadfast, loyal helpmate throughout all the turns ahead. Instead, she got Amicus.

Amicus is lazy, grumpy and greedy with little interest in anything that isn't eating or sleeping. He tolerates Rhaenys at best because she is a convenient source of food, warmth and occasional scritches but is entirely willing to squawk or nip at her if she disturbs his nap or tries to take the food away. He does not do tricks or follow orders.
