FULL APPEARANCE:
Towering above most, Aodh stands at an impressive 6' 6" in height, all broad shoulders and strong musculature. Regarding his other features, his skin is relatively light despite his occupation, his eyes a fierce blue color, and his black hair kept neatly trimmed. Variety doesn't seem to be a strong suit in Aodh's wardrobe, though he certainly knows how to dress well for an occasion. Unless a Gather or other celebration is planned, he'll be wearing some gear suited to a wherhandler; finely-stitched leather and boots to match, sometimes accompanied by a brown cloak on top.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Aodh is a complicated man, but not one that's easily approachable. Aloof and distant to everyone, he sees little value in engaging others except in a professional setting and not longer than strictly necessary, making a point to otherwise avoid pointless fraternizing. Though he's known for being shrewdly patient and tolerant, he can be incredibly sarcastic and caustic once he's pushed too far, often giving little warning to what he's thinking before someone finds themselves facing his ire. Incredibly harsh and blunt, so much as to be be considered cruel by some, he seems to find it difficult to muster enough effort to be even remotely polite. Some might call him lazy, some might call him an irredeemable forsker, but Aodh wouldn't bat an eye to both of these complaints. In fact, he doesn't seem to respect an opinion that isn't his own or from someone close to him, but input from someone of superior rank is also usually accepted. Seeing it as very important to respect his leaders, Aodh is one to follow orders and deviate as little as possible, unless he thinks he has a better course of action and will bring up his view.

Aodh is an odd man, hiding behind carefully maintained armor that few can see past. As his parents were a very strong influence in his life, his pride in his Craft often manifests as an air of superiority, something he maintains into today. But despite his parents' teachings dictating that it would be best to let others fail and focus on his own path, he does his best to help others find success, finding a strange joy in teaching others to be self-sufficient. Deeply self-critical and even stricter to himself than everyone else, he has a tendency to over-analyze everything; accounting for things that aren't really an issue, sometimes even detracting from more important matters. Being a private sort, he doesn't like questions into his personal life, quickly shutting down conversations where he feels necessary; permitting others to see too close would easily allow them to see where his flaws claim origin, to identify and exploit his weaknesses.

Aodh cares for his weyrmate deeply, no matter how snarky a comment he throws Enma's way. But he can't help but get jealous should someone else occupy Enma's attention too long, growing incredibly hostile and aggressive, whereupon he usually withdraws elsewhere until his nerves settle. Though rebuffing everyone else, he is very fond of being physically close to Enma as often as he can, though he's loathe to admit to his affectionate nature even to Enma himself. Despite Enma's confrontational and stubborn nature, Aodh is always ready to support him should his fight be just, while there to calm his anger should Enma be facing a misunderstanding. Though reserved, he's a caring man, otherwise expressing his love through meaningful gestures and acts, gifts bringing less emphasis for him. Aodh is also incredibly close to Aosk, going to great lengths to make sure she is comfortable and happy. Very protective of his garnet, a threat to her is enough to get him to swing on someone, where little else could.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Parents - Journeyman Tailors - living
Siblings/Half-Siblings - none to his knowledge - open tie(s)!
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Enma of Garnet Enmask
BIRTHPLACE: A small hold between Southern Telgar and and Big Bay
HISTORY:
Aodh was born to Journeyman Tailors in a small hold between Southern Telgar and Big Bay Holds. While his parents thought themselves to hold importance and carried themselves as such, it was more realistic to consider that they were more talk than talent, something they wouldn't dare consider. Regardless, Aodh was destined to be a Tailor, being taught basic stitches and observing his parents before he entered Apprenticeship at eight Turns. But sewing wasn't all he observed from his parents. Both too proud and self-focused, they were a poorly-matched couple and fought behind closed doors, often about Aodh and how he should be trained, but they stayed together for some reason beyond him. It left him a quiet and reserved child, focused more on his studies than making friends.

Proceeding through Apprenticeship normally, Aodh was expected to graduate into practicing as a fully-fledged Journeyman. Despite how tumultuous his youth had been, he took comfort and pride in his Craft; there was no better feeling than producing a fine piece of work. But it wasn't meant to be, as a dragon of Igen Weyr flew Search and landed in his small hold of no significance. It didn't take long for her to decide that Aodh would be an apt Candidate. Aodh took some time to consider before he'd say yes, where his parents insisted he wouldn't go; his place was here, a Tailor of utmost importance. But Aodh insisted he would go. It got heated, words were flung that could never be unsaid, but he left before supper. Heading for Igen Weyr, he began Candidacy, practiced his Craft as his secondary plan and solace, and didn't consider visiting or even writing his parents.

It wasn't long before Aodh decided that he wasn't interested in being a dragonrider. Whers were much more familiar to him, beasts he knew and understood. Being Searched at seventeen, he Impressed at his second hatching at eighteen Turns, a bright garnet emerging from her shell and naming herself his Aosk. Proudly entering wherlinghood, he had no idea he'd be meeting someone else who'd completely change his life. Enma was trouble in human form, not afraid to start a fight for a good reason or not. It was rare to find a moment where they didn't argue, but it rarely felt like an actual fight; it was almost like they were simply talking to each other, in a unique way. It persisted all through wherlinghood until graduation, whereupon they found themselves inseparable friends. Even as fully-fledged wherhandlers, Aodh and Enma seemed to possess a deep mutual understanding, working well together even as they tried to outshine each other. But they didn't quite hit that mark. Rather, they complimented each other; Enma was more suited to manage tasks requiring strength, whereas Aodh was analytical and used his wits to succeed.

Turns went by, but Aodh and Enma did nothing but grow closer. It was a slow thing, Aodh even slower to realize it, but realize it he did. How he looked forward to even meeting Enma's eye every day, how even a single snarky grin from Enma was enough to make him smile in return, how horribly he hated seeing someone else at Enma's side. But he said nothing, resolute in his decision that he permit Enma speak first. Perhaps he was afraid that what they had would be broken beyond repair if he said something about how he felt, but he wouldn't admit to such a ridiculous notion. As time went on, even a glance between them held a charge like nothing before, full of longing and something unspoken. It wasn't until they found themselves together during and after Enmask's run that Enma found it within him to say something. Aodh revealed how he'd been waiting for Turns for Enma to speak first, despite feeling so strongly for him, but they didn't speak of it much more before they moved to considered themselves officially together.

It took a long while for Aodh and Enma to settle into being a couple, though nothing changed regarding how they argued and needled each other. Taking some time to really discuss how each felt, as difficult for both as it was, Aodh let his guard down and revealed how afraid he'd been speak first; to possibly lose Enma even as a friend. There wasn't much said after that, but they'd never been much for talking about feelings. Some things were best expressed wordlessly, as demonstrated through little gifts and other small gestures between them. It wasn't long after that Aodh and Enma moved in together, alongside both garnet whers. After more than ten Turns, Aodh found himself bonded to an amazing garnet wher and weyrmate to his beloved Enma; he couldn't be happier. In recent times, they'd both decided to transfer to Fort Weyr, seeing a change of pace in order for them.

Aosk

Image

BASICS

NAME: Aosk
BIRTHDATE: Late Spring 2767
AGE: 9 as of 2776

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 4

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 14 ft.
HEIGHT: 5 ft.
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #f8d0de
FULL APPEARANCE:
Decidedly average in her dimensions, Aosk is nothing special in regards to her size, though perhaps she compensates in every inch of her body being strong muscle; her movement is reminiscent of a large feline, her every step carefully calculated and oddly graceful. Standing too close to Aosk seems to bring a risk of going blind, her coat being an almost obnoxiously bright pink, lightening to flower-petal pink closer to her head. In comparison to her lighter-hued hide, her markings seem to belong more to a mighty warrior. Decorative "armor" runs along her shoulders, sides, and legs, even lacing down her tail in shades of bold magenta and crimson red.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Aosk is a wher whose pride knows no bounds. A wher who acts like she should've been born gold, she turns her nose up at everything and everyone she sees as beneath her notice, unwilling to expend an ounce of effort to even pretend to care for them. Displaying a very intense holier-than-thou attitude, she appears incredibly judgmental and critical toward everyone but herself and those closest to her, pointing out every tiny flaw and mistake. To make it obvious that she's always better than everyone else, she takes great pains to stay perfectly clean and on time to every occasion, often badgering Aodh into assisting in these efforts. Though she dislikes getting too dirty or exerting herself too much, she's always happy to show someone up by working that extra mile.

Few but Aodh gets to see her true nature through her mask: Aosk is a deeply insecure and anxious wher. Wearing her facade of entitlement like armor and her opinions her sharpest weapon, she repels everyone from looking too closely at her; to make light of her flaws both actual and those she perceives. Aosk is deeply dependent on Aodh, though she often tries to downplay and disguise it. Always in close contact to Aodh, even while they're apart, she's not truly content unless he's there in her mind, but it's even better to be near him in person. Aosk is also very reliant on Enmask to protect and guide her, basing much of her decisions on observing what Enmask does, especially in new situations. Despite her fearful nature, Aosk is a garnet of such potential; all she has to do is emerge from hiding in her handler and sister's shadows, where she can shine so bright.

VOICE: Aosk sounds like a beautiful young lady, well-taught and well-bred. Under most circumstances, she affects a tone of haughtiness and syrupy-sweetness, punctuated by airy sniffs. After wearing down her walls enough, she lets go of her facade; she speaks very softly and rather shyly, almost girlish in her more gentle tone, though she always sounds a little tired.
