"Objectively, I'd say I'm very smart, although it has nothing to do with my ass."
-Temperance Brennan, in response to being called a smartass


BASICS

NAME: Temperance; allows Caedance to call her "Tempe"
GENDER: Feminine
PRONOUNS: Feminine (she/her/hers)
ORIENTATION: Not your business nor concern.

BIRTHDATE: Late Autumn 2744
AGE: 29 as of Late Winter 2773
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wherhandler
WING: Mazurka

APPEARANCE
EYES: Pale Blue
HAIR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 9" || average
PLAY-BY: Emily Deschanel
FULL APPEARANCE:
Temperance is an average woman in regard to her appearance, standing at 5' 9" and possessing a standard build for a female wherhandler. With warm brown hair and pale bluish-green eyes, she's nothing special, as she often states. Temperance enjoys wearing professional attire or working gear, situation dependent. In addition, she's rather keen to acquire and wear beaded necklaces others might call "clunky." Jewelry ancient or otherwise antique appeals to her as well.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Temperance is often viewed as cold and aloof, since she values fact and science above all else. Lying is very foreign and wrong to her, so much so she could not or would not even lie to protect those close to her, as much as she wants to do so. But she's not cold nor aloof; not through conscious intent, at least. While she takes everything in a literal sense and doesn't understand or place much value in emotion, she's very close to select individuals. Caedance, her younger sister, is one such person, who Temperance would die to protect. Temperance is one to get straight to a matter's point and not dance about a subject. Rather blunt and even obtuse, she's not one who navigates social situations with ease or grace; metaphors pass over her head, as does sarcasm and humor.

Though she has difficulty interpreting social cues and acting on them in accordance to her translation, Temperance is a woman with extreme intelligence, driven to find an answer to each problem placed before her. A person all for working all reasonable hours, she prioritizes duty above fun or frivolous pursuits, to her relationships' detriment. In addition, she is very stubborn and convinced she knows everything. Once she's found an answer, she sticks to it, until proof arises that states her theory was wrong. Though she doesn't like it, she will admit she's wrong so as not to contradict her disgust for deceit. It's hard to get close to Temperance, ever since she lost her parents. To her, Caedance and Temperask is all she needs in her life; everyone else will continue to fade in and out without materializing as someone she can rely on or trust.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Parents - farmers - both deceased
Caedance - wherhandler - younger sister - living
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Single
BIRTHPLACE: Cothold in Keroon Province
HISTORY: TW: death/loss
Temperance was born to farmers within Keroon Province, near a Minor Hold beholden to Igen Weyr. As a whole, Life was uneventful for young Temperance...until her younger sister Caedance was born. While she didn't understand why such a loud and unpleasant bundle was something to rejoice, she grew fonder and closer to Caedance as she grew older and less...smelly. Together, Temperance and her family worked Keroon's fields and lived a quiet life. It was fine; neither Temperance nor Caedance lacked a single basic need. But Temperance wasn't satisfied being a simple farmhand her whole life through. Something bigger was calling her, pulling her to find it; to explore and discover what Pern could offer.

But before Temperance could find it in her to depart without Caedance, both her parents fell ill. Upon summoning healers, Temperance kept herself and her sister from falling sick, but her parents were too far gone to be saved. Pushing aside her own pain and grief, Temperance took her sister under her wing as both went to live with distant Crafter relatives. Settled in Lemos, being near her relatives struck a fire within her to learn as they did, so she endeavored to Apprentice. But being fifteen at her parents' death, she was too old to begin Apprenticeship. Bitter and disgusted, Temperance was determined to find another path to independence. A caravan, paused in Lemos before passing on, caught her attention. Calling Caedance and speaking about wherhandling to her sister, it was soon decided both would purchase an egg and Impress.

With both girls' allowances and some additional funds from caring relatives, both Temperance and Caedance got an egg. Both eggs yielded bronzes for them, though Temperance was most surprised. Needless to say, she was most pleased, bonding to her Temperask without further ado. Temperask was a good partner, one Temperance could rely on and trust. With both her and Caedance attached to strong bronzes, no-one could ever hurt them. But as Turns passed and both women and bronzes grew older, that niggling spark reignited in Temperance as news about an upstart Weyr called Semaca began making rounds through Lemos. It was an opportunity like no other; one Temperance couldn't pass up. Together, Temperance and Caedance traveled to Semaca with both bronzes and applied to join squads.

Temperask

Image


BASICS

NAME: Temperask
BIRTHDATE: Early Autumn 2764
AGE: 9 as of Late Winter 2773

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 15 ft.
HEIGHT: 5 ft.
COLOR: Bronze
HEX CODE: #eeebde
FULL APPEARANCE:
A bronze with average proportions, Temperask is no mighty warrior beast. In fact, he is more lithe, with narrow shoulders and long limbs. In regard to his hide, he is a pale bronze with darker bronze speckling across his face, shoulders, belly, tail, and legs.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Temperask is an odd wher. One that enjoys witty banter and conversation, yet one that would see himself and his bonded in perfect solitude. Silence and solitude is nothing foreign nor uncomfortable for him; in fact, it's rather soothing. Nothing is above or beneath him to defend those under his care, including lying, stealing, or even killing, though he doesn't find pleasure in it. In conflict, he is rigid and unmoving; he will never break nor yield. Rather pleasant to engage, yet he hides his natural state with skill and grace.

To his bonded, Temperask will travel with them until death parts them. Temperance is his best friend; his single trustworthy confidante. Temperask will see to it that everything Temperance wants is delivered; he's not afraid to work hard and get his claws dirty. To Temperance, he is obedient and unwavering, but he isn't afraid to offer his advice and see it rejected. Living beings learn best through experience, as Temperask thinks, be it good or bad. It isn't his place to change natural order, but he'll ensure someone knows about a poor choice before it's made. But who's he to stand in another's path?

Voice: Temperask sounds rather unnerving, with a whispery and raspy voice like an old man.
