A'llyon

"I don't need friends. They disappoint me."

BASICS

NAME: A'llyon; originally Apollyon, Apollo for short

BIRTHDATE: Late Autumn 2748
AGE: 23 as of Early Spring 2772
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Amber, so dark they seem brown

PLAY-BY: N/A, art credits go to picrew.me, eye color was edited by our very own Jabberwoky! :D
FULL APPEARANCE: Apollyon is tall and lean, though his body is packed with finely toned muscle. His muscles may not pop like crazy, but he's strong. Like, 'carry firestone sacks over my shoulders' strong. He stands at an imposing 6' 5", and he knows it. His skin is lightly tanned, with no freckles to mar his complexion. His hair has grown long due to his lack of care for cutting it, and it flows to below his shoulder-blades in dark brown waves, flaming into a rich red-brown when the light strikes it just right. His eyes are cold and calculating, cutting anyone he looks upon to the quick, a deep amber in color. He doesn't care much about how people see him in regards to his clothes, so he will wear just about anything. Apollo will occasionally make an effort to appear presentable, and will then wear his nicer garments: simple pants with his standard well-worn boots, and a dress shirt. Yes, that's what he considers nice. Insult him, and feel his wrath.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Many of Apollyon's negative traits are present right on the surface, and he has several. Outwardly, Apollo seems uncaring of the feelings of other people around him, aloof, distrusting and spiteful; a lone wolf with a bone to pick with everything that breathes. He lashes out at everyone around him, his anger constantly simmering and misguided, inadvertently hurting those who don't deserve it. Apollyon is also fiercely independent and is loathe to ask others for help, even when he desperately needs it. He can be quite prideful at times, and often takes slight insults to great extremes; making a mountain out of a mole-hill.

Behind this ill-tempered man's frightful sneer is a surprise. Apollyon isn't all rude and crude after all! Underneath his cold exterior is a different person entirely. He can be shockingly gentle and kind, though he is still quite stoic about it; a tsundere, in essence. He has a hint of desperation about him, as he knows people aren't inclined to hang around him, thus making him go to great lengths to make them want to stay. To a lover, Apollo is completely devoted to them, extremely protective and willing to sacrifice anything for their safety and happiness, giving all he has to give. To friends, Apollyon is protective and loyal with only a hint of possessiveness, doing his best to make them all happy to be around him as well.

To summarize, Apollyon is a jerk at first, filled with anger and distrust of a harsh world. He'd rather fight than deal with the emotions of himself and those around him, but admits he must one day face the music. Deep inside lies a man of passion, wanting to protect those around him to the fullest extent. Perhaps, one day, he can learn to control and harness his anger into a weapon to hurl at those who dare to hurt those he cares for.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Brill (father, Journeyman Tanner, 52)
Haylie (mother, Journeyman Tailor, presumed dead, unknown cause, 26 at death)
Alexei (twin brother, Apprentice Tailor, 23)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None, but open! ;)
BIRTHPLACE: Outskirts of Nabol Hold
HISTORY: TW: death, grieving

Apollyon was born amid the Interval War, to Tanner Brill and Tailor Haylie. Their love was an odd one, with Brill quite a stiff and cold man, and Haylie a bubble of brightness and joy at all times. They had twin sons: the elder Apollyon, and the younger Alexei (Alex). Despite the chaos of Golre's reign, life was happy in the family. The parents practiced their respective trades and raised their boys well; they all wanted for nothing.

Then everything changed.

Apollyon's mother mysteriously disappeared around the time High Reaches Weyr started kidnapping potential Candidates. She was never seen since, and both Apollyon and his father Brill are convinced that Golre's goons killed her, though Alexei remains quiet on the matter. As their father struggled with his grief, the boys found themselves to have lost both parents in one fell swoop. Apollo kept himself and his twin fed and presentable, with the help of those around them, much to Apollo's inner dismay. It was difficult for him to have lost his mother and essentially his father at such a young age, and with no time to mourn his mother himself, the experiences began to steer him into becoming the man he is today.

Apollo's father eventually returned from his hiatus of grieving shortly after Golre fell, though he is still very gruff and cold to this day, never quite recovering from the loss of his wife. Alexei was overjoyed, but Apollyon remained wary. Alexei and Apollyon were soon old enough to begin Craft Apprenticeships, and Alexei took after his mother as a Tailor, while Apollo did not take to a Craft at all. Crafting just...didn't appeal to him. Apollo's father, Brill, returned to his own Craft, and Apollo remained with him to assist as much as he could.

After everything with his mother, Apollyon grew to distrust dragonriders immensely, though the spark of curiosity in his heart remained, which would eventually become an insane desire to become the very thing he once hated: a dragonrider. Apollyon has heard rumors of their might and majesty, and has decided to see for himself if these words are true. Why not give life in the Weyr a shot before resigning himself to float adrift in the Hold for the rest of his life? Thus, with a heaping pile of caution, Apollo has decided to forge a path to High Reaches Weyr, somehow, and make an attempt at becoming a dragonrider.

UPDATES

Ysstoth

Image

Disgraceful. Absolutely disgraceful. We're going to have to work on you. A lot.


BASICS

NAME: Ysstoth (Yiss-toh-th)
BIRTHDATE Early Summer 2772
AGE: Newborn as of Early Summer 2772

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 38ft
HEIGHT: 9.5ft
WINGSPAN: 58ft
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #22335f
FULL APPEARANCE:
Ysstoth is a blue whose expressions seem to range from "mildly peeved" to "suppressed fury." No matter the situation, his face just seems to fixed in a perpetual scowl. Yssoth is on the larger end of blues and is strong and muscular, with wide wings, plenty of staying power in the air and little difficulty carrying heavy loads. His hide is a dark blue, with lighter markings tracing abstract, geometric designs along all four of his legs. All in all, he looks like an intimidating blue not to be taken lightly.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
A serious, no-nonsense dragon to a fault, Ysstoth seems to be a dragon who has never been cheery in his life. In truth, he is not terribly expressive. He is absolutely terrible at relaxing, and some days it seems like the concept is absolutely alien to him. There is always more work, and always more things to do. He is a very clean dragon, going so far as to try to pick stones out of the dirt when he walks so they do not get between his toes, or so his rider would not trip on them if walking the same path. He is quietly very kind, and he takes care of his own. His own family is small, and he takes good care of them.

To his rider, Ysstoth is very caring. He also may go overboard, trying to pick out their clothes (he has no sense of human clothing, it will be a disaster), offering to try their food so it isn't poisoned, things like that. He means very well, he does. He just has no sense of personal space. Ysstoth, if he can learn to relax, would be a fine teacher. Drilling will be a breeze to him, it's something he can work on and he can always strive for improvement. He cares very deeply for his rider and his family.

Voice: Ysstoth is as stern as he looks, his voice deep and serious. It is hard to tell when he is happy.

Why Me?: Whether or not Apollo wants a dragon to take care of him and make him grow by flinging him off balance, well, Ysstoth doesn't care. He's made his choice and he's sticking to it.

VOLHIKAR

Image


BASICS

NAME: Volhikar, called Voll for short
BIRTHDATE Late Spring 2767
AGE: 4 as of Early Spring 2772

APPEARANCE
GENDER: Stallion
SPECIES: Equine (Runner)
FULL APPEARANCE: Volhikar is a gorgeous specimen of a runner. Built for speed and stamina both, he is long-legged and strong, with good musculature. His coat is a rich blood bay, with black stockings on all four legs and a white spot in the middle of his forehead. His mane and tail are black and flow wildly, freely in the wind. Voll's eyes are the standard equine brownish color, though some dark amber can be seen occasionally.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: To put it simply, Volhikar is a jerk, similar to his owner. Voll is stubborn, refusing to do things he considers to be unpleasant, and often a general nuisance to the average person who tries to handle him. Even when not being ridden, he likes to make things difficult. For instance, he'll roll around in the mud right after being groomed, dump his water everywhere, drag his tack through the dirt, the list goes on. However, Volhikar has a couple of redeeming qualities. He is noble and brave, willing to face down a wher if his master asks it of him. He is also very loyal to his master, to the point people other than Apollyon get flat glares from the runner if they approach him.
