EDDA

"I-I'm sorry, Avere! I came as fast as I could!"

BASICS

NAME: Edda
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Heterosexual

BIRTHDATE: Early Fall, 2746
AGE: 26 as of 2772
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Dragonrider
WING: Healer's

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'5, slender
PLAY-BY: Edda Pureheart (FFXIV)
FULL APPEARANCE: Edda is a slender woman of slightly below average height, with wide brown eyes and a pointy chin. She dresses simply, but respectably. When not wearing her riding leathers, she still favors dresses that wouldn't be out of place in a High Reaches cothold. Her voice is higher than most women's and sounds surprisingly young. She is never seen without a gold ring that looks like a betrothal ring on her left hand.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Edda is a kind, sweet woman who tries her best. She wants to be helpful and make the people around her happy. She is quick to volunteer to do whatever needs to be done, whether it's flying on a rescue mission or getting more numbweed from a nearby hold. She is a chronic people pleaser and rarely considers whether she can actually do the thing being asked. She'll finish something poorly rather than getting help or leaving it undone. Edda has a surprising ambitious streak. She wants to be a great rider, the kind they write songs about. She's never given up on training and improving herself in hopes of becoming someone more. Edda is prone to hero worship and looks up to and is inspired by the weyr's greatest riders, wishing she could be more like them.

Edda doesn't give up on people easily. She is deeply loyal and if the people she cares about are cruel to her, she will only struggle harder to win their approval. She can be a bit of a pushover. She also tends towards obsession and clings to relationships past their natural end. The only one who can sometimes convince her to let go is Katakurth, who is her dearest and most trusted friend.

Since Avere's death, Edda has struggled to move on. She thinks of him often and is haunted by guilt for not being able to save him. Plagued by self-doubt, she panics easily and has difficulty making the quick decisions necessary during threadfall. She relies heavily on Katakurth's help.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Parents: Edmon and Rayda, weyrfolk
Several siblings, both older and younger
Childhood Friends: Avere of Green Satashath, Liavinne, Paiyo
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Former weyrmate Avere, deceased
BIRTHPLACE: Ista Weyr
HISTORY:
TW: Death
Edda had a happy childhood, growing up alongside her lifelong friends: Avere, Liavinne and Paiyo. Edda cared about all of them deeply, even if Avere bossed her around a bit more than she would have liked, Paiyo didn't seem to much care about her one way or the other and she sometimes suspected Liavinne didn't really like her at all.

Edda doesn't know when she first fell for Avere. It felt like she had always been half in love with him, her childish crush maturing into something deeper as they grew up. Eventually, Avere returned her feelings and promised to become her weyrmate after they both Impressed.

When Fort took over the rebuilding of High Reaches, Paiyo suggested the group transfer. Paiyo had heard the weyr struggled to retain enough candidates under Golre's policies and a smaller candidate pool would surely improve their chances of Impression. Besides, a weyr in transition could offer unique opportunities to young people looking to make a name for themselves. The group agreed to go and all four friends transferred, excited for the new adventures they'd have at High Reaches.

All four soon became candidates there. Edda tried hard in her lessons and practices, but was never the most competent of candidates. Answering questions in class made her anxious and she wasn't fast or strong enough to excel in drills. Her friends quickly surpassed her and never let her forget it.

The group's first clutch at High Reaches was donated by Lutrath, unexpectedly caught by a green. Edda naturally dreamed of being chosen as the goldrider, but it was instead a large blue who found her that day. Edda loved Katakurth from the moment her eyes met his and was determined to become the rider he deserved. As Katakurth grew and they began to train more seriously, however, it became clear that Edda was ill-suited to flying in a thread-fighting wing. She panicked too easily and forgot what she was supposed to do. At the suggestion of her mentor, and with Katakurth's encouragement and support, Edda decided to join the Healer's Wing instead and contribute to the weyr as best she she could in her own way.

Edda's three friends had failed to Impress at Katakurth's clutch and at the green and garnet clutches that hatched during Edda's weyrlinghood. Bored with High Reaches and disillusioned about their chances at Impressing in the weyr, they decided to go home to Ista, where there were more golds to lay "properly sized" clutches. They were going with or without Edda. Edda chose to transfer with them, not ready to give up her friends and, most especially, Avere.

In time, Avere and Liavinne Impressed. Paiyo decided he had had enough of waiting for a dragon that might never come and purchased a wher egg. Avere and Edda became weyrmates, as they had planned all those turns ago. Avere bought Edda a hold-style betrothal ring to commemorate the occasion. Avere's dragon was a green named Satashath, fast even for her color. Edda thought it would be very romantic for Katakurth to catch her, but the blue was never quite quick enough to win her flights.

Avere proved a domineering weyrmate, delegating to Edda all the tasks he didn't want to deal with, from mending his straps to cleaning the weyr to maintaining their supplies of oil. He was quick to blame Edda for anything that went wrong, whether it was her fault or his or both of theirs or neither. It took time but eventually Katakurth, who had never particularly liked Avere, convinced Edda she deserved more and the pair split up. Edda's friend group fell apart soon after, Paiyo drifting away from all three of them and Liavinne siding with Avere. Liavinne soon confessed her long-held fondness for Avere and the two became weyrmates.

Time past and Edda grew into her role as a rider. With Katakurth's help and the benefit of experience, she learned to keep a cooler head during threadfall and came to enjoy her role helping rescue the wounded. That all changed one terrible fall, Satashath's wingsail was struck by thread. Edda and Katakurth were the nearest members of Healer's Wing and flew to help. Hurting and scared, Satashath panicked and flew away from rather than towards the pair. Her strength gave out and she crashed to the ground before Edda and Katakurth could catch up. Both rider and dragon died.

Liavinne, who had failed to flame the thread that wounded Satashath, lashed out at Edda, blaming her for Avere's death. Haunted by guilt, Edda decided to return to High Reaches, away from her former friends. She started to wear Avere's ring again, a reminder of the price of failure, and resolved to become a better rider, so no one would ever die again because she wasn't good enough.

KATAKURTH
Image
Straighten up. There is a storm coming, and your Katakurth must be here to help you weather it.


BASICS

NAME: Katakurth
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2762
AGE: 10 as of 2772

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 39 feet
HEIGHT: 10 feet
WINGSPAN: 60 feet
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #353a62
FULL APPEARANCE:
Katakurth is a giant blue. He is positively tall and imposing, with long, narrow wings. He can hold his stamina with some of the smaller browns, and while he isn't exactly fast on his feet, he has quite the endurance. For as large as he is, he has a rather light and dainty step. He is a smoky denim blue all over, and his markings are almost invisible at first glance. The markings are a very faint, lighter denim, tracing in blocks over the outsides of his wings, and in asymmetrical bands over his legs.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: While Katakurth is outwardly stoic and serious, he presents himself as such because he is a very dutiful and strong dragon. He prefers to be the rock that everyone can lean on, and he wants to be someone that people can count on. He likes being a protector, and he likes to be there when someone needs him. He is something like a big brother and a parent all in one, and he has no problem scolding older dragons if he finds their behavior deplorable. He has a fondness for gardens and growing plants, and it will be hard to keep him from trying to sneak into the Healers' gardens to lose at everything and find plants to grow.

To his rider, Katakurth is a protector. He is loyal to a fault, but he is not above calling them out on their poor behavior if they deserve it. He will mold them into proper dragonriders come thread or high water. That isn't to say he is devoid of humor! When he allows himself to relax, he has a pretty good sense of humor, and while he isn't one for playing pranks, he does know how to have fun, and how to keep himself in shape. It take a lot to wear on his patience, but when he does finally snap, all that anger he keeps deep inside will burst forth like a rainstorm. No one irritates him more than Hisahith and Beihath, and he refuses to work with those two.

Voice Katakurth's voice has a velvety smoothness to it, but there is a sharpness to his tone that commands respect and authority.

PROMISE
Image

BASICS

NAME: Promise
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2772
AGE: 0 as of 2772

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Gold
FULL APPEARANCE:
Promise is a pale gold, with subtle swirls along her hide and stars on her wings, most evident in the sunlight. She is on the larger side for a gold flit in length, but built slender and elegant. Her muzzle is slightly short and rounded and she has slightly squinty eyes, which are quite cute.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Promise is a flit who takes life at her own speed. She'll get where she needs to be when she needs to be there and no amount of nudging will really make her move any faster. She is a sweet firelizard though and quite good company in her own way. When she flies, her flights will be long, meandering and winding and she doesn't seem overly trouble if chasers don't care to follow it through.
