BASICS

NAME: Nhelin
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Pansexual

BIRTHDATE: Early Spring 2730
AGE: 41 as of Summer 2771
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wher candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Green
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'4" with firm muscle, slightly more bulky than a runner's build
PLAY-BY: Djarn picrew
FULL APPEARANCE: Nhelin is tall, standing around 6'4" with a well-muscled build. She is not entirely bulky, but one can tell she is strong just by looking at her. As an athletic woman--the type who excels at physical pursuits--she is a capable fighter and adept at various practical and physical tasks. She wears her brown hair short, but femininely so; cropped just above her shoulders. It has a natural wave to it, and her long bangs are pushed to the side. Her eyes are green, with a small mole beneath the left. A scar mars her face, stretching over her lips from mid chin to just below her left eye. She holds herself like a soldier--strong posture and decisive, almost rigid movements. Her expression ranges from neutral yet judgmental to downright hostile--the definition of 'resting bitch face.'

Her voice is low and gravelly. She often omits words that feel irrelevant to getting her point across, and isn't against single word responses, or even grunts.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Nhelin takes herself very seriously. She is equal parts disciplined soldier and bitter grump. She challenges and pushes others to be their best, but pushes herself twice as hard, running herself ragged just to improve and grow. Although she may seem demanding, judgmental, and critical, it comes from a well-meaning place. She is a dutiful, protective sort, working too hard and refusing to sit still even for a moment. She is very honest, even blunt (but a terrible liar). With no tact or patience, Nhelin struggles with knowing how and when to be gentle, and is generally a prickly and externally unpleasant woman. At her best, she is awkward and quiet. She is terse, preferring to get to the point or say nothing at all. This woman is strong-willed and even willful--determined to do her best and stubborn as a mule.

Nhelin is also hateful, angry, and bitter. She isn’t afraid to back up her claims with her fists if needed, and she does not take any shards. Due to her jaded outlook, she trusts no one. It’s her against the world. As a result, she gets defensive easily. If she feels attacked, she lashes out like a cornered animal to protect herself. She generally seems cold and aloof, even rude, with a sharp temper. Her sense of humor is dry, sarcastic, and rarely present.

She often worries that she is not good enough or strong enough. Nhelin has a good heart, deep down, and feels guilt over things that have little to do with her. She wants to do right by her weyr, despite Golre’s reign, despite her own bitterness. Despite her love for High Reaches, she hates dragons and their riders--especially metallics. Vigilant to the point of paranoia, Nhelin never trusts when others are being nice to her.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
-Mother: Anhe
-Father: Malinir
-Son: Liniral [Linny, -25/16]
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches Hold
HISTORY: TW: Kidnapping, injury
Born in spring of 2730, Nhelin wasn't even a turn old when the interval war began. She never knew a life without Golre. High Reaches Hold, while not the weyr, was impacted throughout Golre's reign, as candidates were eventually kidnapped, rather than typical search free of coercion. As the child of a loving but unimportant pair of drudges, Nhelin never assumed she was meant for greatness. She was not the type to be kidnapped, surely. She assumed the role of her parents with ease, working as a drudge when she turned of age. Her parents worked hard, and she took on their work ethic.

It all changed in 2748. Shortly after her 18th nameday, she was kidnapped--albeit not forcefully by any means--by a rider on search. She'd never had much interest in dragons, but began to hate them with a passion after this point. She wasn't given much of a choice, and went reluctantly. She wrote to her family, but eventually, she begrudgingly allowed High Reaches to become her home. For much of her life, she kept her head down, not wanting to bring any ire or attention upon herself, but she quietly seethed, hating metallics and riders alike--but especially Golre.

In 2755, thread returned and the war ended. While riders were suddenly less reprehensible, she still hated them. She aged out at 25 (though the age of candidacy would rise, later), and to celebrate her freedom and delegation to 'weyrfolk,' she enjoyed the company of a man. Nine months later, her son was born, with no involvement from the father. Nhelin used her father's name for inspiration, rather than typical naming conventions. She dearly loved her son, and was very involved in his life. Luckily, she hadn't Impressed, so she was able to be more involved in raising him.

A turn after her son's birth, she began wondering about wher candidacy. It was strongly discouraged for a woman--if allowed at all--but that was part of the allure. Someone told her that as a woman, she shouldn't have a wher; she fought him, an altercation that grew bloody when his belt knife slashed her face, leaving a scar.

Starting in 2760, although the war had officially ended, High Reaches continued to cause drama. It was a strange time, one of women bronzeriders and strange new garnet colors. High Reaches declared war on Fort, and finally, Golre died in an attack, along with some bronzeriders. Chromatic dragons began to lead High Reaches, but Nhelin continued mistrusting them. The age for candidacy was raised around this time, but even had she been young enough, she wouldn't have wanted to. That said, she did become a wher candidate, officially. Beware a woman with a wher? Yes, you should beware of her. She's a wher candidate now.

Eggs were stolen from Fort, and Nhelin grumbled about it. Dragonriders and their petty politics, their awful ways. How could someone steal the children of another? It seemed horrible, especially to such a loving mother.

High Reaches had poor luck with golds, but Nhelin couldn't complain about the structure of High Reaches. So what if no golds wanted to transfer in? It was tragic that people died, sure, but why should she care about the fact that High Reaches struggled with golds? After a while, she relented. Maybe High Reaches did need a gold, to replenish the wings. After traditional Aldoeith's hatching--with rumors that Toki was pushing for power--Nhelin changed her mind. Toki could freeze between, for all she cared.

In 2770, at the age of 15, her son became a dragon candidate, much to Nhelin's worries.

NHELISK
Image

BASICS

NAME: Nhelisk
BIRTHDATE Early fall 2771
AGE: 00 as of 2771

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1-2 (Please select how many times per Turn your dragon/wher will rise or chase. These do not have to be on-screen! )

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 17.5 ft
HEIGHT: 6 ft
COLOR: Gold
HEX CODE: #DA3F1D
FULL APPEARANCE:
Despite the slightly reddish tint of her hide, there can be no doubt that Nhelisk is queen, large and shining, regal and a bit intimidating. She towers above her clutchmates and carries herself with obvious self-assurance. Nhelisk is a wher whose will always make her look like she is wearing a mask and gauntlets and like her tail is alight with golden flame. Her markings are a lighter gold that would make clear her true color, if the shine of her hide and her size didn't already give it away.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Nhelisk is a wher of extremes who doesn't understand the meaning of "too far." She is capable of great heroism, but will not hesitate to do terrible things for the greater good. She believes the ends justify the means and does not flinch away from the dirty work necessary to turn ideals into reality. Once she has a goal set in her mind, no rule, no advice, no appeal to reason, morality or the laws of the weyr will sway her. She is perfectly willing to use physical force or compulsion when she considers it necessary and feels little guilt about it. Charismatic, strong and intelligent, Nhelisk is utterly confident in herself and her own abilities. She will perform her share of impressive feats but these successes will only fuel her hubris and further convince her there is little she can't handle. Nhelisk will risk everything for a doomed mission, believing until it's too late that she can pull it off in the end. At heart, however, she is a good wher who wants to help others and protect her home.

Nhelisk enjoys gathering her own little pack of friends and allies and is a natural leader. The color of a wher or dragon means little in her mind and all must prove their worth through their actions and choices. To her self-chosen pack, she'll be what she needs to be: Teacher, general, friend. She is willing to lead them into danger alongside her. Although she doesn't relish the thought of her companions coming to harm, she doesn't allow loyalty to blind her to the bigger picture. She will treat her handler as her partner, if they're willing, but will work around them if they try to get in her way. Nhelisk is mostly a serious wher, but has occasional flashes of humor, which can veer into the surprisingly petty.

Voice: Nhelisk's voice is deep and commanding but still decidedly feminine

Why Me?: Nhelisk needs someone like Nhelin who won't sit idly by but will challenge her worst ideas and Nhelin could use someone like Nhelisk who is more comfortable navigating delicate social situations. They both have good hearts, strong wills and a few rough edges. They could become a force to be reckoned with together or constantly be at odds.
