FULL APPEARANCE: Natira is small, at 5' 4" in height and very light in weight. Even a slightly-built man could throw her over his shoulder with little difficulty. Her skin is a light tan and unmarred by freckles or other marks or scars, with a cute button nose and slender features. Her hair is a dark brown, brushing her shoulder blades when let down, often held back in a ponytail. Her eyes are doe-eyed and hazel in color, green sparkling amid the brown, an intelligent gleam deep within. She typically wears modest clothes around the Weyr, and a heavy duty jacket when flying or Thread-fighting, as she can chill easily.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Natira is caring and kind and sweet, and very rarely finds any reason to lose her temper. She loves to help others, and often goes out of her way to do so. She is a dreamer with a gentle soul, who believes that the stars hold many secrets that have yet to be discovered, and a love for all things in life. She loves to read on any subject, often taking a mug of chocolatey klah and settling in her weyr with Khalbath when she has a free moment. Natira is also notably shy, though not as shy as some. She has a tendency to efface herself and try to pass by unnoticed, though she is perfectly comfortable in conversation with others.

Just because she's sweet doesn't mean she's a pushover. Well, most of the time. 99% of the time, Natira is perfectly fine with being ordered about and following the lead of others. She feels that people with bad tempers will soften if she is kind and willing. Yet there's that 1% of her that is stubborn as all hell. Piss her off, and she'll make a decision that she thinks is best and refuse to budge. She can see your way, but she isn't stupid, and it doesn't mean she feels that your way is best. That said, she is devoted to serving her wing, and won't make a choice that is detrimental to the wing's goals and wellbeing. While she doesn't like it when others take credit for her work, she'll often keep her mouth shut and keep her head down, just for the benefit of others.

Stress: all day, every day. If Natira has a flaw, it is her ability to stress out over every little detail of every little thing. That doesn't mean she is a perfectionist; she simply gets very stressed over inconsequential matters. This takes a minor toll on her ability to function, leaving her occasionally forgetful in high-stress situations and wearing her down mentally. Often, Natira's tendency to over-stress, on top of her personal star-recording and duties as a brownrider, exhausts her. She does her best to serve everyone around her that she often forgets to take care of herself, though she always sleeps the sleep of the content and the just...when she sleeps.

All in all, Natira is a sweet girl with a heart of gold, but her tendency to stress like crazy drags her down from reaching her full potential. She is rarely stubborn, but when she is, good luck getting her to follow you. She is intelligent and kind, a motherly and patient individual, always glad to help others to the best of her abilities. She loves her Khalbath and serving her wing deeply, even more than reading, which is saying something. She is also a strict vegetarian, but she doesn't try to foist it on others, and she is happy to cook meat for others on request. She is a very good cook, and loves her chosen hobby.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father - Glasscrafter, living
Mother - Starsmith, living
Older brother - Smith, living
Two younger brothers - both living and being obnoxious as usual
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None at the moment, but open!
BIRTHPLACE: Benden Hold
HISTORY: Natira had humble beginnings. Both her parents were Crafters, her father being a Glasscrafter and her mother a Starsmith. She inherited her big heart from her father and her love for the stars from her mother, and from both her creativity and her wandering dreams. Natira was an older sister and the only girl, and very good at her job. She learned from her mother how to cook and tend a house, so that Natira could care for her siblings while the mother worked her Craft. Natira was a momma's girl, through and through, and followed her mother's footsteps as a Starsmith and a hobbyist cook.

She was Searched from her home in Benden Hold when she was 16 and brought to Benden Weyr, though she did not Impress there. She loved weyr-life all the same...until she started realizing what was happening around her. Friend Alayna and Wyzeth disappeared from public sight, and the clutches of the other Benden queens suddenly got larger than any other queens'. This was all quite confusing to the Candidate, making her worry more than usual. Feeling too uncomfortable and sure that something was wrong in Benden, in addition to a failed relationship with a fellow Candidate, Natira transferred to Ista Weyr, Impressing brown Khalbath not long after. It was the happiest moment of her life, and she immediately entered weyrling classes with pride. The strange occurrences of Benden got swept to the back of Natira's mind, as her duties ramped up as Khalbath grew. She never truly forgot her friend, however, and wrote to Alayna as often as she could. Natira never got a reply, and the letters eventually tapered before finally stopping.

Then the truth was discovered when Alayna escaped to Fort, and Natira was absolutely disgusted when she heard. She stayed only long enough for Khalbath to reach full size and for their graduation. When the time was right, Natira applied for transfer, wanting to see her friend again. Besides, there were problems in the dynamic of her wing, only bolstering her decision to transfer. Khalbath, in a rare moment of decisiveness, heartily approved, wanting to see Wyzeth and protect the queen wherever she went. Suddenly too wary, she rejected both Fort and High Reaches, on the basis that Fort was still 'traditionalist' and High Reaches was still recovering from Golre's reign of terror, and absolutely refusing to return to Benden. Things were just so...off now. Thus, she and Khalbath packed up their things and transferred to the budding Semaca Weyr, cutting off ties to Benden and shunning new developments; she didn't need any more of that Weyr in her life.

When she arrived at Semaca, Natira was withdrawn and too shy to approach. She visited her family often, drawing comfort from home. That was where she acquired a firelizard egg, a birthday gift from her mother. It hatched out a peaceful little white, and Natira dubbed him Hope. Then his true colors shone through, revealing him to be possessive and overly protective of his human. Natira doesn't hold it against him, and loves him all the same, even when he makes things difficult.

Natira has remained shut off from everyone up until recently, when the brownrider finally got done berating herself for leaving Alayna in Benden all those Turns ago. She emerged like a phoenix from the ashes of her former self, beginning to interact properly with her fellows riders and others around her. Natira may no longer be truly fresh from Ista, but she hopes to make a positive impact on the world in the Southern Weyr, to erase what happened back at Benden.

Khalbath

Image


BASICS

NAME: Khalbath
BIRTHDATE Late Summer 2768
AGE: 4 as of Early Spring 2772

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 43 feet
HEIGHT: 11.25 feet
WINGSPAN: 67.75 feet
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: #4e2a11
FULL APPEARANCE: A gorgeous specimen of brown, though on the smaller end of the brown size scale. He is a deep klah brown all over, except for the paler brown on his chest, neck, and front legs. His body is completely dotted all over with star-like markings, and Natira is convinced that these markings shine on dark cloudless nights.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Scatterbrained. This is Khalbath in a nutshell. He rarely can focus on a thought for long, something in his surroundings always distracting him and sending him on a new train of thought. The only exception to this is Thread. When in Threadfall, Khalbath is extremely focused and sharp. He is a protector at heart, devoted to saving those that need saving and shielding the weak from harm. When he needs to fight, he rarely uses his teeth or claws, preferring to use his body to shove an opponent away in a defensive manner.

Khalbath loves to stargaze with Natira, observe insects, eat, and talk to anyone and everyone interested in a conversation. He is not picky on whether he uses his mental or physical voice, and loves to engage with others in mindless chatter, be it human, dragon, or lizard. Khalbath is reasonably intelligent, but can be confused easily at times, and is quite vulnerable to tricks and pranks. He is playful and curious as well, and absolutely obsessed with insects.

To his rider, Khalbath is a sweetheart and best friend. Natira helps Khalbath with his scatterbrained tendencies, keeping him focused on the task at hand. He is very attentive to her needs and wellbeing, though he doesn't always know how to word his suggestions to her. He adores her with everything he has, and would protect her from anything. His love of humans and gentle nature make Khalbath a good Searchdragon...when Natira keeps him focused.

Voice: Khalbath's voice is high-pitched like that of a young boy and filled with wonder at everything he sees. He has a tendency to shout when he's happy or excited, or to be heard over others.

Hope

Image


BASICS

NAME: Hope
BIRTHDATE Late Spring 2768
AGE: 4 as of Early Spring 2772

APPEARANCE
COLOR: White
HEX CODE: #252525
FULL APPEARANCE: Hope is a deep midnight black color all over, with a faint white sheen to his entire body. His eyes are a deep red color generally, beady and always fixed malevolently on whoever has Natira’s attention. He is average size, around the size of a cat. Simple as that.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Hope can be called a jerk. He is very possessive of Natira's attention, only tolerating Khalbath because the brown could squish the lizard if he so chose. Hope won't hesitate to bite and scratch to get what he wants, be it Natira's immediate and undivided attention or anything else that strikes his fancy. He'd never scratch or bite Natira...just everyone else who is getting her attention. Hope takes it as his mission to protect Natira, always staying close to her side and attacking anyone he sees to be a threat to her. That said, he isn't all bad. He often gets very cuddly with Natira in private, especially after eating. He loves wherry meat above all, though he isn't as food-motivated as other lizards.
