LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Bright Brown
HAIR: Fiery Red
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 5"; skinny and lithe
PLAY-BY: Expy of Timon (The Lion King); Art by Fated character maker picrew
FULL APPEARANCE:
Timon is a slender young man, with a height of a mere 5' 5", but he doesn't let his size stop him from following his dreams. His skin is very tan from his days spent romping in the sun, dotted with freckles all over his nose and parts of his cheeks. His eyes are a bright brown color, full of life and joy. His hair is a bold bright flaming orange, in a mess of wild curls, always falling in his eyes, with one sprig of hair refusing to lay flat.

Timon enjoys looking nice while still being able to frolic. Thus, he wears button-down shirts and slacks with fine suspenders, with standard shoes for running and climbing and whatever else he does. The problem is that he rarely can do his shirt buttons properly, giving him a lopsided and messy look. Regardless of his less-than-perfect appearance and general disarray, he usually greets people with a bright smile and a joyful greeting.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Timon, at first glance, is an energetic young man. A wanderer and an explorer with a good heart, he loves experiencing new things. Oddly enough, Timon can be both a bold daredevil and extremely cowardly. Dare him to eat a weird bug? He'll eat three. Sudden loud noise that can't be explained? Good luck finding Timon. Loyal to the end, he is devoted to his family and his friends, and always willing to help out in anything. His boisterous and loud attitude can overwhelm some people, but with a few prods and a little explaining, Timon is capable of toning himself down to make others comfortable.

Timon is forgetful at times, as his daydreamy nature can take him far from Pern. Additionally, he can have difficulty identifying the emotional state of others, thus resulting in offering the wrong help, resulting in potential further problems. Unfortunately, Timon has a few flaws to note. Though it may take time for him to realize his mistakes and get over his selfish desire to keep denying his role in the problem in question, Timon will ultimately admit his guilt and apologize.

Timon holds a seed of selfishness in his heart, and absolutely hates it. Yet he can't help it! At times, bitterness and frustration plague him, and he feels he ought to have received the good things others have acquired. Timon hopes that, with time and effort and family, he can overcome this facet of himself, but it has lately proven unsuccessful. This self-centeredness can be seen in the physical world through Timon's words, as he can become sarcastic and sharp-tongued when experiencing these complex feelings inside.

It may not be obvious, but Timon is capable of being very brave. If he can overcome his fear of the threat at hand - which becomes very easy if his loved ones are in danger - he will face the hazard head-on...even at the risk of his own safety. This reckless tendency is likely to get him into trouble more often than not, but he can never stand idly by when people are in danger. It completely goes against his nature! Even as he struggles with his own problems, Timon will do his best to help others, though his current tactic of yelling loudly at the threat isn't very effective.

SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None, open!
BIRTHPLACE: Igen Weyr
HISTORY:
Timon has always been an ordinary weyrbrat in Igen Weyr, born of a pair of dragonriders and raised mostly by the creche workers. He had regular contact with his parents, especially his father. While his mother was often "too busy" to visit her son, his father always made time to be with Timon. A sense of awe for dragonriders developed from time spent with R'mon and his enormous, warm, and friendly brown dragon, and an intense desire to become a Candidate, and later a dragonrider, bloomed in young Timon's heart.

Timon spent his childhood roaming the Igen sandplains, romping around and going on adventures, under the watchful eye of his foster mother. A generous and loving woman, hoping he'd like her gift, she presented Timon with a flit egg when he returned from playing one evening, and oh how delighted he was! Taking extra good care of the egg, it soon hatched, granting Timon with a large brown flit he dubbed Pumbaa. Now, Timon had an eternal companion at his side.

Timon had a near brush with danger on one of his romps outside of the Weyr, when he was about twelve Turns old. Exploring the sandy wastes in the shade of the Weyr, a sandsnake was disturbed from its rest by an oblivious Timon's walking. Loyal Pumbaa sensed the danger and didn't hesitate to charge the snake as it lashed out. Timon bolted away unscathed, but tremendously surprised, while Pumbaa fled the scene before the snake recovered and decided to counterattack. After that, Timon stuck a little closer to the Weyr, and his love for his Pumbaa increased by nearly tenfold.

When Timon was fourteen Turns old, he came to learn that he had siblings! Half-siblings, but still more family! He had two older half-brothers - one traveling with a caravan somewhere and the other an Igen bluerider - and the other - a big sister! - was a recently Impressed whiterider. Yet uncertainty held him back a brief time, until he found the courage to approach his elder brother. Time spent with A'den was like finding a paradise! But by the time Timon turned to truly greet his sister, Rhaenys had transferred to Fort. Sad, Timon returned to daily life, determined to write letters to her.

Timon entered Candidacy the day he turned fifteen, eager to become a rider like his family. Perhaps a brown would like him, or a blue, or a white! Standing for several clutches with great excitement. No dice. Oh well. He still had many Turns left to try! Then news came to him that his half-brother A'den was transferring to Fort. Wait - Rhaenys was there! If he moved to Fort too, he'd be with his siblings! Requesting transfer as well and saying goodbye to his father, Timon hitched a ride with his bluerider brother to Fort.

UPDATES
  • Early Spring 2773: Timon Stands for Serapheth's Kingdom's Edge clutch and is left Standing. But hey, he got to see his roommate Megumi Impress to blue Zoth! That, and had an interesting encounter with green Clohoth, as the dragonet shoved past him to get to her T'rix - "haha, BONK"

IC Information
What type of candidate is your character: Timon may say he's a dual Candidate, but he's really dragon all the way. xD

What color/s does your character want?: Brown! Timon wants a brown, just like his big sister and his dad. But, um...he's open to all of them! Brown is the color that interests him most, though he will rarely say so.
Does your character have any personality preferences or concerns?: Timon would adore any dragon that notices him, but he'd love one with a fun-loving, happy-go-lucky personality like his own.
Does your character have any other preferences or concerns?: Timon is mildly concerned what would happen if he ended up a bronze/goldrider, but he's not overly hung up on that. It's the dragon's choice, after all! :D

OOC Information
If your character is a dual candidate IC, do you have a strong preference on whether they Impress dragon or wher?: Dragon, but definitely open to whers. :3

What color(s) are you willing for your character to impress to?: All!
Do you want your character to be eligible for gold?: Sure? It'll go horribly wrong, I'm sure of it, but yes. Consider others first, please!
Do you have any personality preferences or concerns?: I'd love Timon to end up with a dragon that would either help him combat his selfishness or help him grow into a mature young man. Perhaps both, if possible, but it isn't necessary. Best match trumps all! :D
Do you have any other preferences or concerns?: None!
Why do you think these choice/s would be a good fit?: I put Timon's fate in your hands. c:

Do you have any preferences about the conditions of your character’s impression?: Impress at any time and under any condition! Getting whacked in a fun area might be amusing, but not necessary. ;)
Are you alright with your character getting hurt? What injury level is acceptable/what should be avoided?: Avoid major scars, limb loss, and death. Take care of my sweet child. <3
Are you willing to Impress a creature with a mutation/oddity? Anything that should be avoided?: Nothing that needs to be avoided! If the match is good, feel free to bond Timon to a mutation/odd dragon! :D

Is there anything you will ABSOLUTELY NOT accept?: Nope!

Pumbaa

Image


BASICS

NAME: Pumbaa
BIRTHDATE Early Summer 2766
AGE: 6 as of Early Winter 2772

APPEARANCE
SIZE: Large
COLOR: Brown
FULL APPEARANCE:
Pumbaa is utterly massive for a flit of his color, with a girth to match, from Turns of good eating and spoiling from his doting human. Pumbaa has a dark brown hide, with a streak of lighter brown running down his belly. A snub of pale brown colors the tip of his nose, giving him a cute little spot on his face.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Pumbaa may not be the most intelligent or graceful of flits, but he more than makes up for it with his loyalty and warm, gentle nature. He loves food and belly-scratches, and is very friendly toward everyone he meets. While it isn't obvious or often, he has a stubbornness and hard-headed attitude that can rear up in certain situations. Pumbaa's bravery is hard to see, but it is ever present. When his bonded human is in danger, Pumbaa won't hesitate to attack the threat head-on to protect Timon or others he cares for, such as the sandsnake incident when both Timon and Pumbaa were young. Pumbaa is intelligent enough to understand what an insult sounds like, and refuses to tolerate it. He can get very ill-tempered if he himself or his bonded is insulted, and it can become difficult for Timon to hold his friend back.
