BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Character - Retire, Dragon - Adopt
NAME: Leena
GENDER: Cis female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Biromantic homosexual

BIRTHDATE: Early summer 2735
AGE: 34 as of summer 2769
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wingrider
WING: Daylight Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Hazel
HAIR: Light blond
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 0", curvy
PLAY-BY: Michelle Williams (face only)
FULL APPEARANCE: Leena and her twin were born prematurely, and while Leena came out of it healthier, she's still tiny. Even by Terran standards, she'd be considered short, and on Pern she's shorter than many teenagers. Her body and face dispel any misconceptions quickly, though; she's very curvy, bordering on plump, and her face is far too mature to be that of a child. Before her twin's death, she was usually seen with a small smile on her face, though now lines have started to make their mark. She keeps her blond hair cropped in a pixie cut, though it's gotten messier since Sarah's death.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Leena is a Mom, with a capital M. She doesn't really care about having biological children, because she has a huge family already, related by blood or not. She has a tendency to "adopt" bullied weyrbrats, especially girls, inviting them to her weyr for sweets and checking up on them for Turns afterwards. She's made a point of going to every Hatching that her family has Stood for, and considers it a point of personal pride when one of her charges Impresses. She adores animals and wishes she had the time to devote to raising a menagerie of sorts, though she's acquiesced to Verinth's stubborn refusal to have any sort of non-dragonkin around her.

The death of the one family member she loved the most has brought out a bitter streak in her, though. She despises Danielle for failing to protect her twin and feels a strong sense of guilt that she wasn't there to save Sarah herself, though Verinth has tried to convince her that she would probably have died along with Sarah. She's become jealously protective of her family lately and is refusing to acknowledge the fact that her younger "children" are growing up, even trying to dissuade some of them from Standing.

When it comes to tasks unrelated to her family, Leena's a bit of a slacker. Surprisingly laid-back and calm, she prefers to have life come her way rather than try to control it. She's decidedly unambitious, much to Verinth's displeasure, and likes to spend time with her family as much as possible, even at the expense of some of her duties. Oh, she'll get done what she needs to get done, but she doesn't believe in going above and beyond.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Sarah (identical twin sister, deceased), several other biological siblings (all younger), parents, a horde of quasi-adopted "children"
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Weyr
HISTORY: Sarah and Leena were born a bit earlier than the Healers would have liked, Leena just a few minutes behind Sarah. While Leena thrived quickly, born larger and stronger than her sister, it was thought that Sarah would not live past a few sevendays. Sarah ended up stubbornly clinging to life, though she would always be sickly and had a strange seizure condition throughout her life. Leena quickly learned to protect her twin from the unthinking cruelty of other children and the more deliberate cruelty of her elders, using fists with the former and words with the latter.

The pair's parents were weyrmated riders, and they spoiled their children but didn't actually have much hand in raising them. They and their siblings were creche children, Sarah dragging Leena and their younger siblings into all sorts of mischief. The twins loved dragons and Stood together as soon as they were old enough. Leena was wary of her sister's attachment to fellow candidate Danielle, though she relented a bit when they were officially dating and happy together.

Sarah and Leena Impressed at the same clutch when they were eighteen, both to beautiful greens. Verinth, a grumpy yellow-green, had a soft spot for her rider's look-alike and her bonded, and striped Lukith loved Leena and was on friendly enough terms with Verinth. Leena continued to help Sarah with her condition throughout weyrlinghood, assisted by Danielle, who hadn't Impressed in all her Turns of standing. She was genuinely happy for her sister's weyrmate when she bonded a green wher, though a good part of it was Sarah's happiness.

Just a Turn after Danielle Impressed, as they were going to celebrate Danisk's first birthday, tragedy struck. Sarah was killed and Danielle injured. Leena turned against her sister's weyrmate, blaming her for not being able to protect her, and blaming herself, too, for not being there. They haven't been on speaking terms since, and Leena has grown overprotective and bitter.

UPDATES
  • Early Spring 2765 - The pair are promoted to Wingleaders of Daylight Wing, a step up from wingriding in Aurora. Verinth is pleased, though Leena is not nearly as enthused.
  • Late Summer 2769 - After two fatalities in her wing, one caused directly by Leena's misdirection, Leena steps down from her post as Wingleader.

Verinth
Image

BASICS

NAME: Verinth
BIRTHDATE: Mid-fall 2753
AGE: 15 as of summer 2769

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: NO
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 28.5 ft
HEIGHT: 6.75 ft
WINGSPAN: 47 ft
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: 476F00
FULL APPEARANCE: Though Verinth is of average length, she's thinner and shorter than expected, and her wings are quite large, making her seem longer than she actually is. Most of her body is a chartreuse color, and her hide is glossy. Her lower legs and a mask-like area covering the front of her face and neck are a dark forest-green with the same gloss as the rest of her body.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Where Leena is fiery maternal instinct, Verinth is cool logic. She doesn't like people nearly as much as her rider and is grumpily tolerant of her rider's family. Her protective instinct is reserved solely for Leena, and she's rather glad that she never had anything to do with clutching. Weyrling dragons, she thinks, are tolerable at best and a huge bother at worst. They just get in the way and eat all the good food. Oddly enough, she has a soft spot for firelizards and young whers, though she thinks mammals are filthy, and dotes on her "little cousin" Nissa.

Verinth is ambitious, wishing her rider would strive for a wingleading position, and has even mentioned transferring to High Reaches once or twice after hearing that the Weyrwoman's dragon is a green. She tries to get her rider to be more proactive, with little success. She worries a lot about Leena because of the effect Sarah's death has had on her, and thinks a change of scenery would do them both some good, though Leena adamantly refuses to budge. Verinth is secretly proud of her for being so stubborn, though she'd never say so out loud.

Nissa

BASICS

NAME: Nissa
BIRTHDATE: Early spring 2751
AGE: 18 as of summer 2769

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: Average
HEIGHT: Average
WINGSPAN: Small
COLOR: White
HEX CODE: #F8F8F7
FULL APPEARANCE: For this smallest of colors, Nissa is surprisingly average, his wings being smaller than expected but still good enough to carry him around. It isn't like he chases, so it wouldn't be as large an issue as it would on another color. He's faintly off-white, the distinction only being visible when he's compared with either a pure white specimen of his color or something that's been bleached to oblivion. A streak of black, like a scar, slashes above and below each eye, but otherwise he's unremarkable.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Nissa is male, and by the time Verinth was around to inform Leena of her mistake Nissa had already internalized his feminine name. Obviously, having no concept of gendered names, he doesn't care either way. He's a calm, loving white, balancing his rider's protectiveness and his big cousin's aloofness. He loves exploring and being sent to carry messages, and he's a very reliable messenger, with a knack for memorizing people. A picky eater, he'll only eat certain animals when he's hunting, though he's surprisingly tolerant of whatever Leena decides to feed him.
