But I got this feeling
Don't have the answers
But I'd say things are looking up"
(SafetySuit, Looking Up)


BASICS

NAME: Kash
GENDER: Masculine
PRONOUNS: Masculine (he/him/his)
ORIENTATION: Panromantic Homosexual

BIRTHDATE: Early Autumn 2755
AGE: 21 as of 2776
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Squadrider
WING: Chopin

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Black
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 11"
PLAY-BY: Picrew
FULL APPEARANCE:
Kash is 5' 11" tall and naturally lighter in build. Though he might've been taller otherwise, being unable to consistently secure food has left its mark on his body, making it easy to describe him as gaunt. But after almost four Turns living in Semaca, he's gotten stronger and not looking quite so pathetic, his clothes not hanging so loose on his frame. Kash's skin is lightly tanned, his cheekbones and his nose dotted in freckles, as he loves being outdoors and spends every second he can romping. Since he brushes it once a day (upon getting out of bed every morning), his hair is almost always a mess; about an hour into his day, Kash's black locks are all across his face in a chaos of dark waves. As bright blue like clear lagoon water, his eyes are always full of curiosity and fun. Built for reaching for things lost on high shelves or fruit on trees, for running far and fast, his arms and legs long; but given his gangly stature and poor eyesight, Kash has a tendency to run into things, resulting in small bandages frequently dotting his face, hands, and knees, to name a few places.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Kash is a very upbeat and optimistic person. A happy-go-lucky force of nature, he has a keen sense of adventure and a good heart. Always bouncing his way about Semaca (Kash doesn't walk like most would, he bounces or skips everywhere he goes), he loves trying to elicit a good laugh from those around him. Very adventurous, Kash seems like a bottomless pit of energy, up at sunrise and eager to help wherever he's needed. Though he's quite clumsy and known for bumping into both others and objects often, he doesn't let those little bumps in his path get him down...much.

Kash is a very passionate person in everything he does. "Work hard, play harder" is his mantra, which it suits him well. Food is a surefire way to earn his devotion. Loving food of all sorts since his childhood, he won't let a single crumb go to waste, as he had very little growing up; he'll happily finish off what food no one else wants, going so far as to swipe things that are burnt or otherwise unpalatable before it can be thrown away. If confronted about it, he's firm in his beliefs that edible food mustn't go to waste, ever; he can be incredibly defensive if pushed about it. In addition, Kash loves to sing, though he's not that good at it. One can often hear his shrilling while he's bathing, working on chores, or sometimes in his sleep.

Unfortunately, Kash struggles in his own way. Being quite reckless on occasion, he can start a five-way fight at no adequate cause or throw himself in front of someone else to take a terrible blow, giving no thought for his own safety. It's everyone in his life that he cares about most, cherishing those he loves so much, meaning he'll put himself in danger for them if need be. Kash also suffers immense anxiety, as he thinks others simply tolerate his company and inwardly think he's too bubbly and outgoing. It's always on his mind while he's engaging someone, trying not to go too far in his exuberance. In addition, he often hoards food in a hidden spot in his living quarters, a habit born of necessity, thanks to his childhood.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father - common fisher - living (presumed) - open tie!
Mother - common fisher - living - open tie!
Siblings/Half-Siblings - none to his knowledge
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Small cothold of Nerat Province
HISTORY: TW: arguing, separation
Kash was born to a young couple in a small fishing cothold of Nerat, Northern Continent. Being so young, Kash remembers little of his father, but what he does remember isn't all sunshine and rainbows. Most of what he remembers is arguments between his parents about various domestic matters, particularly how to make ends meet while caring for a young child. It was too much for Kash's father, who left and didn't return. So Kash's mother adapted, almost always managing to somehow bring food home to her son by working hard and accepting help from those who saw her struggles. Though Kash has always remembered not getting much growing up, he had his mother's love, which was more than enough for him. Due to such a difficult situation that mother and son found themselves in, both learned to ration food supplies and make do on little, in spite of assistance from neighbors and friends, as well as her hard work as an unskilled fisher. Kash was molded from a young age to appreciate what he had and not take food for granted.

As soon as Kash was able, he began working too, trying to help his mother and take some of her load. Kash performed various odd jobs within his cothold, continuing for Turns. In his fifteenth Turn, he was running a message and happened upon a clutch of firelizard eggs. Beyond excited, he carefully packed them up, profusely apologizing to a clutchmother that rapidly fled, before brought his find home. Though he distributed them all to everyone in his cothold that wanted one, Kash managed to keep one, which hatched into Kash's beloved Skipper. Kash was ecstatic, exorbitantly glad for his new friend. But after a time, Kash felt restless. Though he had his work to occupy his time and both his mother's and Skipper's company, there was something missing. That's where a dragon on Search swooped in. Wanderlust plucking at his soul, Kash decided he'd throw caution away (as usual) and accept Search to Benden Weyr. But it didn't take long for such an upbeat young man to grow crestfallen and saddened. There was an oppressive air here, not to mention Benden's history! Benden wasn't right for him, so Kash applied for transfer to Semaca Weyr, to explore a new land and try his hand at a distant dream: life as a dragonrider or wherhandler.

Kassk

Image

BASICS

NAME: Kassk
BIRTHDATE: Early Fall 2772
AGE: 4 as of 2776

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 12 ft.
HEIGHT: 4 ft.
COLOR: White
HEX CODE: #888888
FULL APPEARANCE:
Kassk is long and lean, with a build almost more in line with a dragon than a wher. He's borderline scrawny, and while he'll never be as strong as most whers he has an impressive amount of endurance, able to run for hours without tiring. The base of his hide is a medium steel gray, darkening to an almost charcoal color on his underbelly and legs. His markings are unusual, regular shapes that seem like they wouldn't be out of place in a forge: dark metal plates and tubes on his sides, and lighter shapes overlaying them. There are light "wheels" on his legs. There's a fuzzy white circle on his forehead, which he'll refer to jokingly as a "head-light".

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Kassk is a wher with a purpose. He know what he was born to the Weyr to do: fight Thread. Without that, he'd be utterly lost. When confronted with the possibility of outliving the current Pass, he'll usually try to deflect the matter with a bad joke; he really doesn't like to think about having to face an existence where he isn't absolutely certain of his purpose. When not working, he's a wher that loves his sleep; napping is one of his favorite pastimes.

Kassk is witty and sarcastic, often liking to complain about how hard he has to work even if he's perfectly happy doing what he knows he's supposed to do. He likes jokes, though he's extremely bad at telling them, being prone to mixing up words with similar ones when he speaks. He enjoys the company of other whers, though he's not particularly fond of being around other humans without his handler present, as he's somehow gotten the idea that they might try to steal him and deny him the work he's supposed to do.

Why Me?: They each need someone to balance out the other's energy levels.

Ksk

Image

BASICS

NAME: Ksk
BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2776
AGE: Newborn as of 2776

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 15 ft.
HEIGHT: 5 ft.
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: #8B8059
FULL APPEARANCE:
Ksk is a large brown wher, albeit a relatively lean one. While he isn't the bulkiest of whers, he is undoubtedly very strong and muscular, in a more compact way. Ksk is an eye-catching wher, with a pale, almost golden head fading into a deeper brown tail. Markings like a strange wreath of alien leaves ring his neck and his face is accentuated by marks of a darker brown above his brow and around his headknobs. He has an additional pair of markings around his forelegs, resembling some strange variety of bracer.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
For as big as he is, Ksk carries himself with a presence that reflects his strength, but with a gentleness that would be uncharacteristic of a wher. Do not let it fool you, he can be a ruthless beast, a vicious fighter. He will need his handler to properly rein him in, and he is monstrous when he must be. He does know that he's strong, and he is also smart. Plans and formations are easy for him, and he is vigilant. One would think this wher was a fight commander in another life, and maybe he was. He is just the pinnacle of what a wher should be, strong but firm, steady without weakness.

To his handler, Ksk is a kind, understanding wher. He is firm but fair, and he wants to try to find his way in the world alongside them. He wants to explore, but he wants a routine. He would volunteer for guard duty as much as possible if he were permitted. Failures will weigh heavy on his heart, not mistakes. He loves Nollask, the wher holds his heart and the two are quite intertwined. He will not chase, for he has no attraction to female whers.

VOICE: Ksk's voice is soft but powerful. He can command a room if he so chooses.

Why Me?: Ksk admires Kash's good heart and enthusiasm for life. He thinks he needs Ksk's strength and wits, to lead them on many fine adventures togethers.

Skipper

Image


BASICS

NAME: Skipper
BIRTHDATE: Late Summer 2770
AGE: 6 as of 2776

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Blue
FULL APPEARANCE:
Skipper is small for a firelizard, his build light for tight maneuvers. Simple in regards to his coloration, he is completely dark blue except for a lighter blue painting his body down his throat, along his belly, and encompassing most of his tail. As one looks further along his wings, that dark blue fades into a near black shade of an ocean's depths.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Skipper shares some traits in common to Kash. Being bubbly and cheerful, he's a fun-loving firelizard that absolutely loves being doted on by humans, but he fears most dragons and demonstrates caution about whers. Being smart enough to know that he's more likely to get treats if he behaves cutely, he utilizes such tactics to get choice morsels of food. While he's somewhat intelligent, Skipper isn't suited to standard firelizard tasks like carrying messages or fetching objects. While he'll happily help, he has difficulty distinguishing individuals from each other, which often results in errors. But tricks are right up Skipper's alley, being very good at aerial tricks such as cartwheels and somersaults. Loving to make others laugh, he's eager to perform and utterly ecstatic if Kash asks him to do a trick.
