EXPY SOURCE: Wiggins (Pocahontas)
FULL APPEARANCE:
At 5' 7" tall, D'tius is a twiggy man, almost reedlike in his build and demeanor, though deceptively strong from Turns of dragonriding. Relatively plain regarding his features, he has light brown hair long enough for a low ponytail and dark brown eyes, his skin a soft tan from spending time outdoors. For his everyday affairs, he's fond of wearing his Weyr's colors in a tasteful tunic and breeches, though most of his clothes in his wardrobe are still Ista's colors.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
D'tius is quite notably a featherbrain, incredibly scatterbrained and usually clueless. In contrast to his almost comical ditziness, he can be uncannily perceptive, easily missed in how quiet and reserved he can be, though it's rare that he acts on what he observes. On these infrequent occasions, he's factual and straightforward in relaying what he knows. In fact, he's usually very blunt and honest in how he speaks regardless, seeming unaware that there are times where tact is necessary. Being a creative sort, he's fond of arts and crafts, as well as those who practice them, eager to observe them in motion as his responsibilities permit.

Speaking of his responsibilities, D'tius is a very duty-oriented man, being raised from a young age to take his obligations very seriously. Into today, he has a strong respect for authority and an acute sense of honor, following a more traditional mindset in approaching his day-to-day activities. But stemming from his deference for those in charge and his focus on duty, he struggles to assert himself and stand up for himself, finding it almost impossible say "no" if someone asks him to take on additional assignments. Due to his forgetful nature, while a rare occurrence, it's not unheard of for D'tius to neglect his responsibilities, much to his chagrin and shame.

But in spite of his flaws, D'tius is a eternally happy, albeit a somewhat fretful, man. There's little that gets him down, though his worries sometimes take command of his senses on occasion. Above all else, he's absolutely devoted to Cliraffeth. To him, his garnet can do little wrong, no matter what awful things he might say. Determined to be there to support his dragon and help him through his insecurities, D'tius is often found catering to Cliraffeth's every demand, from scrubbing and oiling him to letting him feed more often than he should; it often puts him in conflict between knowing what is right in regards to his duties and his love for his dragon.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Parents - manservant (father) and seamstress (mother) - both living
Siblings/Half-Siblings - none to his knowledge - open tie(s)!
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Minor Hold of Ista
HISTORY:
Born to drudges in a Minor Hold of Ista, Decentius was expected to live a quiet life much like his parents. As his father was one of numerous immediate servants in his Lord's service and his mother a seamstress, Decentius was taught honor and respect at an early age, following a traditional way of life. Once he was old enough, he was taught practical skills and permitted to take a place alongside his father, to prove his merit through practice. But at twenty and two Turns, his fortunes would change wildly as a Searchdragon from Ista Weyr sensed in him a worthy Candidate, granting him a new path: to Stand and Impress, to fight for Pern against Thread and all else that threatened her.

Of course, Decentius accepted such an incredible honor, though utterly flabbergasted that he had been chosen, of all those he felt were worthier. Regardless, he went to Ista Weyr and adapted to his new routine, taking on new studies and showing his value in new ways; Weyr ways. But he couldn't help but worry, seeing as he was dangerously close to Candidacy's cutoff age before he'd seen his first clutch. Would he see success? It was a Turn later that a garnet strutted from his shell and chose Decentius, demanding to be fed immediately. D'tius obliged posthaste, eager to meet his Cliraffeth, who seemed confident that D'tius was his as much as he was D'tius', now and for all his days.

Weyrlinghood was a change of pace that D'tius struggled to take in stride, but he and Cliraffeth graduated soon enough. Entering Ista's Threadfighting wings, it was a harsh introduction to a dragonrider's reality to face Thread directly, after so long hiding from its ravages at home. Hissing silver tendrils made him restless by day and crept into his dreams at night, until being forced to face and master his fears, as well as time and perhaps some unspoken help from Cliraffeth, steadied him. As a present for his graduation, a brief friend had acquired firelizard eggs, to which one was given to D'tius. It hatched into a white he named Percy, of whom he was incredibly fond, though Percy seemed more interested in being Cliraffeth's friend.

But it seemed there was unrest farther from home too, beyond his own personal troubles. A coup was staged, egg thieves were discovered and punished, strange dragonriders appeared across time itself to Weyrs Fort, High Reaches, and Semaca. Semaca, a land untamed and untouched that called for those brave enough to brave her shrouded jungles. D'tius didn't think he was that sort of dragonrider, but an intrigued Cliraffeth insisted to go; it was an opportunity that wouldn't be found here or elsewhere. So he applied for transfer, selecting Mazurka as his new position; surveying and mapping resources sounded so peaceful! It would be a worthy compromise for both D'tius and Cliraffeth.

Cliraffeth

Image

BASICS

NAME: Cliraffeth
BIRTHDATE: Late Summer 2770
AGE: 6 as of 2776

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: NO
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 40 ft.
HEIGHT: 10 ft.
WINGSPAN: 60 ft.
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #5e277a
FULL APPEARANCE:
Cliraffeth is a large and strong garnet, though notably round in shape and stature. Between an imposing barrel chest and a muscular frame, he cuts an intimidating figure. Regarding his coloration, he's a singular bright purple across his entire body. A darker purple paints his toes, tail tip, and all across his wings.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Cliraffeth seems to be in total control at all times, cool and calm and collected through and through. It's hard to rouse his ire, but he's in no way an easygoing or particularly friendly garnet. In reality, he's lazy and self-centered, wanting nothing more than to be doted on and let everyone else work in his place. Very greedy and power-hungry, he'll stop at nothing to get what he wants, seeing nothing wrong in being relentless and remorseless in getting what he wants. Though he's full of personality and somewhat charismatic in his own way, he often feels more powerful than he actually is, his wits and charm sometimes getting him into trouble.

To his bonded, Cliraffeth isn't nearly so high and mighty. Though he portrays confidence and strength, he's actually somewhat insecure, feeling as though he'd be readily forgotten if he didn't project himself so intently. D'tius often cows to Cliraffeth’s vanity, dutifully scrubbing and oiling him until he shines as bright as a new mark, so that others cannot miss him, so as to not forget him. More often than not, once he's lost control of himself and is beyond reason, he's scathingly rude and blatantly insulting, not to mention bullheaded; once he's decided something, it's incredibly difficult to change his mind.

Cliraffeth prefers masculine/masculine-identifying dragons in his flights and will chase masculine-identifying dragons, but is biologically female.

VOICE: Cliraffeth has a strong masculine voice, though a rolling effect often colors his words, like an accent from a faraway land.

Percy

Image


BASICS

NAME: Percy
BIRTHDATE: Early Fall 2771
AGE: 5 as of 2776

APPEARANCE
COLOR: White
FULL APPEARANCE:
Percy is a small and pudgy white, who somehow looks like he's always frowning. It doesn't help matters that D'tius is always easily persuaded into giving an extra snack or two. Very simple in regards to his coloration, Percy is a plain white all across his body, but a darker grey covers his headknobs and muzzle.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Percy is a snotty and snobby little white, as well as demanding and easy to upset; he's a fiery thing if angered. Suspicious of strangers, he isn't fond of being touched, nor does he readily share his things. While oddly canny for a firelizard, he uses these observations to decide who to disregard or who might possibly earn his favor. Though D'tius spoils him and acquiesces to his every whim, sees to his every need and want, it's Clireffeth to whom he's closest. More often than not, if he's not sulking somewhere for some reason, Percy is usually curled up somewhere near or on Cliraffeth. But while it's hard to see under all his attitude, he can be something close to a friend, singularly loyal to those he holds dear.
