- Ralph Waldo Emerson


BASICS

NAME: Amelie
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/Her/Hers
ORIENTATION: Undecided

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2756
AGE: 15 as of Summer 2771
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Blonde
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' and petite
PLAY-BY: Picrew.me
FULL APPEARANCE:
Amelie is small. She's only 5' tall and slight, making her look incredibly fragile. She is much sturdier than she appears, but much to her chagrin it is easy for others to misjudge her. Her hair is long and blonde, her eyes brown, and her skin pale. She burns easily in the summer so it's fairly common for her to cover herself as well as possible and smell faintly of numbweed mixtures during the season.

She has a few faint nicks and scars on her arms and legs from childhood, but nothing of particular note. For the most part, she is fairly unremarkable in the distinguishing scars or blemishes department, but has a very youthful appearance, and is often mistaken for much younger than she is.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Kindly and gentle, Amelie has a soft, breathy sort of voice when speaking, sounding almost lyrical in a way. She is fully capable of yelling or raising her voice if she has to, but prefers not to do so unless absolutely necessary, so sometimes it is a little difficult to hear her. In general she has a very calm, relaxed atmosphere about her, which can lead others to feel at ease in her presence. However, due to her youthful appearance and her soft-spoken nature, she is often overlooked or ignored.

She believes that people are inherently good at their core, and everything someone does they do believing it is for the right reason--even if others may not see it as such. Due to this way of thinking, she can be a bit naive. She also tries to find the good or rational side of things rather than sitting on the bad. This gives her a heavily optimistic viewpoint on life, and as such she is generally able to find a reason to be in a good or at least decent mood even when things are looking down. She is very non-confrontational and dislikes violence of any kind, and will always try to calmly talk through an argument rather than becoming hostile.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Mother, Father - Alive
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Small High Reaches cothold
HISTORY:
Amelie was born at the very tail-end of the Interval War and just before Thread returned. She has no memory of wartime or a time without Threadfall. Her family raised her in the small cothold, living in an area which was more like a farm to one side off from the main cothold and consisted mainly of her family and cousins. They traveled by wagon with their harvest for supplies and trading of their grown goods.

There really weren't any particularly grand happenings of note while growing up. She was an only child of her parents, though she had many cousins both older and younger, and no lack for friendly faces. However, she wasn't particularly adventurous and mostly helped her mother around the house or worked the farm which, despite everything, did absolutely nothing to help in making her taller or bulkier.

During a trading visit to the cothold proper, a handful of Riders visited from High Reaches on Search, picking through the local children to see if any of them might be suitable as Candidates. To her dismay, she was just shy of Searching age--a few months, at worst. Unfortunately, this meant she was required to wait out the winter season, but luckily the Riders made note that they would be returning. Not specifically for her, of course, but in the future for more Candidates. Hoping to be chosen and wanting to be able to keep in touch with her family, she traded with a passing caravan for one of their firelizard eggs, which soon hatched into a little green she named Squeaker.

As soon as she turned fifteen, she went on each visit with her parents, hoping that the Searchriders would be returning--and luckily, she didn't have to wait long!

Squeaker
Image


BASICS

NAME: Squeaker
BIRTHDATE Winter 2770
AGE: ~6 months as of Summer 2771

APPEARANCE
FULL APPEARANCE:
Squeaker is a bright, lime green Firelizard, with limbs dipped in faded green from the elbow/knee down. Halfway down her tail also shares this colour, as well as each of her headknobs. She's a little smaller than average for a green, but also a little on the plump side.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
This is one of the laziest firelizards you'll find. She spends most of her time napping in the sun, and when she's not napping she's stealing tidbits of food from the kitchens. She's very food motivated, and most of the time all it takes to get her to do something is promise her a treat.
