"It's never easy...but if we turn our backs on our principles, we stop being human."
Captain Kathryn Janeway, Star Trek: Voyager,


BASICS

NAME: K'ryn; originally Kathryn, sometimes called Kat
GENDER: Feminine
PRONOUNS: Feminine (she/her/hers)
ORIENTATION: Heterosexual, but who has time for that?

BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2728
AGE: 48 as of 2776
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wingrider, Wingsecond
WING: Aurora

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Red
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 5"
PLAY-BY: Kate Mulgrew
EXPY SOURCE: Kathryn Janeway (Star Trek: Voyager)
FULL APPEARANCE:
K'ryn is 5' 5" in height and her build light, but that doesn't mean she should be discounted or overlooked. Though she often alternates between letting it grow long, keeping it out of her way in a neat bun, or trimmed short and neat, her hair is a bright auburn red. Dark blue, her eyes are bright, full of intelligence and cutting if she glares. Regarding her clothing, K'ryn isn't particular, though she's been a little more aware of her appearance since her promotion to Wingsecond. So long as it's functional and doesn't make her look as though she'd been living under a rock, it's perfectly acceptable. Usually, she wears something like a simple blouse and black slacks, as well as boots; she is fond of red. A habit developed from past experience in bad periods of Threadfall, she's rarely far from her fighting gear.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Above all else, K'ryn is dedicated to her duties as a dragonrider. Ever since she was a child, her main goal has been to help others as best as she can; being a dragonrider is her ultimate dream come true. Brave and loyal, she will always place others before herself. But K'ryn strictly holds herself to dragonrider principles, following her orders exactly, though she isn't above bending them a little. K'ryn has a strong moral compass and immense empathy for others, so if an order stands between her and doing what she sees as right, she'll find a loophole which would allow her to proceed unchallenged.

K'ryn has a tactical mind, high intellect, and sharp wit, but she's utterly lost in most relationships' subtleties, as she knows little else but duty. Romance especially eludes her, though flattery and wooing often amuses her. K'ryn is sociable to an extent, but rarely can she attach a true friend. Usually, she comes across as blunt and somewhat untouchable, but she is a very compassionate woman who cares for everyone, no matter what situation they come from or find themselves in. But she's also incredibly hardheaded, as well as struggling to manage her occasional bouts of impulsivity and recklessness. If she sees that there's a hefty reward waiting beyond some risks, she'll take her chances, her willfulness driving her to keep at it and not give in.

Into today, K'ryn struggles. Depression is a dark shroud across her shoulders, guilt like weights dragging her down, but she keeps everything she feels inside. But she doesn't she let others see her damaged core, as she must be strong for others, not vice versa. Should something go wrong, she blames herself, certain it was her actions behind it; she looks for ways to make it right, which sometimes puts herself in danger. Occasionally, she can be self-righteous, blind to what alternatives others suggest. While she's so sanctimonious, she's rather sensitive to criticism and rarely sees reason. Additionally, K'ryn is sometimes so absorbed in her personal goals and negativity that she's almost consumed her, driving her to extremes that are unlike her usual self. Once she returns to normal, K'ryn is often regretful of what she did, searching for ways to to make amends.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father - dragonrider - father - deceased (Threadfall)
Mother - dragonrider - mother - living - open tie!
Siblings/Half-Siblings - younger sister - living - open tie!
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Ista Weyr
HISTORY: TW: death, depression
Kathryn was born of flightlust, like numerous Weyr-bred children. Raised mostly by Ista's creche, she had little contact from her busy parents, so she lived a simple life among other creche children. While she made friends where she did, she was mostly unnoticed, performing well in her lessons and staying on top of her chores. As time went on, she emerged from her shell, less antisocial as she matured, soon blossoming into a young woman ready to take her first steps on her future path as a dragonrider

Kathryn was bright and driven, excelling in her studies and eager to serve her Weyr. As war exploded across Pern, some were rattled, but not her; she would sign up for Candidacy, Impress, and fight for Ista Weyr. As soon as she proved eligible, she volunteered herself as a Candidate and waited. And waited. And waited. For Turns, she thought she'd walk from those sands in triumph, but always left in disappointment. It didn't matter what color, every single dragon that met her eye found her unacceptable.

It was her twenty-fourth summer that saw Kathryn Standing once more, in careful control of her emotions, though inwardly crestfallen at her previous attempts. Though she stayed further behind to graciously allow newer Candidates a place up front, today was her lucky day. A voice dragged Kathryn from her thoughts, a green introducing herself and requesting to be fed. Ekavieth was everything K'ryn could ever want in a dragon; she felt they'd go far together, joy suffusing her every waking thought for her green. Proudly entering weyrling classes, she graduated a good student and a fine dragonrider into her first fighting wing. Everything was well and good, seeing K'ryn happy and content.

Until things started going wrong. K'yrn had seen forty Turns before her father fell in Threadfall. K'ryn found herself spiraling, unable to come to terms and face what had happened. From simple acquaintances and those she had known and loved all her life, she lost more and more as time went on, these deaths mostly regarded as part of life's harsh realities, while she lived on to pick up what was left after losing her father; to her, there was nothing but ashes. It left her crippled in emotional turmoil, but Ekavieth was there for her, until K'ryn found enough strength to pull herself free from her mind's darkness and start again, almost two Turns later.

But she still had to face her monsters; considering flying Ista's skies against Thread left K'ryn quaking in her boots, even after so long spent fighting. It was an onslaught of unknowns. What if she lost someone again? What if she herself took serious injury or perished before Thread's ravages? What if her Ekavieth fell prey to Pern's ancient nemesis? But it was Ekavieth herself that suggested transferring elsewhere; to recover in a new place and let K'ryn find her courage again. Deciding that was her best option available, K'ryn filed for transfer and said her goodbyes before she left for Fort Weyr.

UPDATES
  • Early Spring 2774: In Threadfall, Ekavieth has a really bad landing, clipping her tail on her ledge and causing vertebrae to dislocate halfway down her tail. (Moderate)
  • Late Spring 2775: In Threadfall, Ekavieth tries to get to a clump of Thread to flame it, but puts herself in another clump's path, which scores her right hind leg. (Moderate)
  • Late Spring 2775: K'ryn is promoted to Wingsecond!

Ekavieth

Image


BASICS

NAME: Ekavieth (eh-KAH-vee-ehth)
BIRTHDATE: Late Summer 2752
AGE: 24 as of 2776

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: NO
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 28 ft.
HEIGHT: 7 ft.
WINGSPAN: 42 ft.
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #123326
FULL APPEARANCE:
Ekavieth’s hide resembles the night sky as much as any green dragon’s can, a tapestry of pale green spots like stars overlaid on a deep forest-green backdrop. While most of her hide resembles a clear night sky, stars unshrouded, her wings have faint hazy patterns reminiscent of a cloudy night. Her hide is the main thing that stands out about her, though; otherwise, she’s just about average for size, built for speed like many of her color. She holds herself proudly, with confidence rather than arrogance.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Ekavieth is a consummate partner. Though she is a dragon, and the workings of her mind are not human, she nonetheless does her best to support her rider, giving advice and comfort. She’s good about asking which one her rider would prefer in a given situation. She has a soft spot for her rider, but holds everyone else, herself included, to an incredibly high standard. Ekavieth is not good at making friends or being social, and even her flights are affairs of efficient business rather than the fun escapades some other dragons enjoy.

Ekavieth also has an odd penchant for klah. She doesn’t actually drink it, but really likes the smell for some reason. She’s not quite sure why.

VOICE: Ekavieth’s voice is a low alto, brusque but not harsh.
