Manuel of Garnet Minevath

Manuel
"..."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire both
NAME: Manuel, Manny to those who he trusts
GENDER: Cis Male
PRONOUNS: He/Him/His
ORIENTATION: He's not really into dating or sex.

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2746
AGE: 21 as of Winter 2767
LOCATION: Semeca
OCCUPATION: Wingrider
WING: Mazurka Squad

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Brown, kept short but messy
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'10, Lanky. He's able to lift things but he's far from being the most muscular person at the Weyr.
FULL APPEARANCE:

Ever since he was young, Manuel's baby fat did not remain. He's a tall gangly man whose limbs seem a bit longer than they should be. He keeps his hair trimmed and kept under a bandanna if he can. His face is a bit longer, with a boxy chin. His hands have long fingers, which as spindly but dexterous. He also bears scars from when he accidentally hurts himself in the kitchens.

His clothes are constantly seeing wear and tear, and since his body is a bit longer than most, he finds it hard to get new clothing made just for him. But he knows how to take care of what he's got, and always does his best to keep his clothing as well maintained as possible.

His personal hygiene is not something he's overly concerned about. While he always keeps his hands clean, he doesn't always feel the need to bathe. The most he will do is twice a sevendays, sometimes more if he needs to. But he does make sure he's not terribly offensive, smellwise or visually.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Manuel is incredibly quiet. Like ghostly quiet. He's spent his whole life going unseen, and has worked on his listening skills since he was a young child. As such, this man is the man who will listen to your problems and never share them with a single soul. He knows that sometimes all someone needs is a person who will just nod and keep quiet so they can get issues off their chest.

While he's very methodical and set in his ways, he also is surprisingly accommodating when it comes to strangers. He'll offer you the coat off his back if you're cold, and offer you food if you're hungry. But if he knows you, he will do his best to pick up on your habits and signals so that way no words need be spoken.

Manuel is very much a caring person but when he is suitably angry, then he will do his best to avoid people and work his own issues out. However, if this proves impossible, his demeanor does a 180 and he immediately lets his problems out. Usually by scolding or snapping at the other person. Its a problem hes been trying to work on, as he knows its counterintuitive to happy, harmonious relationships.

As far as intra-weyr politics goes, he doesnt care as much as he should. Especially since his parents work as cooks for the weyr. But he knows he doesnt have the aptitude for leadership, and knows he himself cannot make a difference alone. So instead he chooses to help others and bring the weyrfolk and everyone else in Fort Weyr closer together.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Hogar ( Father, chef )
Muriel ( Mother, chef )
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Weyr
HISTORY:

Manuel is not a hero. He's not a villain. He's not even a side kick. He does not hold a special place in the heart of the community. At least not as strong as others. And yet, he still exists.

His origins are humble, having been born to two cooks who fell in love and decided to have a child. While the plan with Manuel was that he was to go off and become an apprentice at a Crafthall, he expressed no desire to go. And with some convincing, they decided not to send him away.

Instead, he helped them in the kitchens, cooking and cleaning all manner of utensils and learning the art of cooking large meals for all those who lived and worked at Fort Weyr. But he wanted more. He wished to try and be a Candidate, perhaps for a Dragon or a Wher. It didn't matter, he was curious. He wished to be more than just a cook or a kitchen boy all his life.

His day would come.

The day that she hatched, Minevath, a Garnet who was beyond regal in his eyes, was the day he felt like his life really started. Their bond was wonderful, and she had the added benefit of not having to speak aloud to converse with him. The pair would work hard, despite everything that held them back, and wind up in Twilight Wing.

Minevath

BASICS

NAME: Minevath
BIRTHDATE Early Winter 2764
AGE: 3 as of Late Winter, 2767

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 35 ft
HEIGHT: 8.75 ft
WINGSPAN: 52.5 ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #d570c0
FULL APPEARANCE: An absolute princess. Minevath is a dragon with an incredible elegance to her. She carries herself as if she is royalty, head high and her steps graceful. This does not mean she's fragile. She has a lot of guts, and a lot of strength in her. Despite that, she is not a very graceful flier, sort of awkward and uncoordinated. She's definitely not the largest garnet, heavily on the smaller end. She is a bold pink all over, almost magenta and really hard to miss. She has bright pink markings over her head, as if she is wearing an elegant crown with hanging earrings. On her chest and things are great, lavender emblems similar to Casvath. Her markings are quite interesting, beautiful pink across her forelegs and her hind legs.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Minevath is a queen in all but name and color. She is compassionate and kind, but she does not allow herself to be walked on. She is strong willed and a powerful negotiator. There is something very sweet about her as well, though she puts up a front most of the time. She does not want someone to think that she is weak, or something to be manipulated. She puts a lot of faith in Qeubeleth's guidance and opinion, finding the other garnet someone to be admired. She wants only to bring peace between mutations and the rest of Pern, having a very strong sense that they are not yet completely accepted by everyone among them.

To her rider, Minevath is a guiding light, a gentle voice that she wishes to stay close to and help. She does worry if she is strong enough, if she is doing the right thing. She second-guesses her actions frequently, for as strong as she presents herself, she never knows if she is right. She has a great fondness for Banajeth, finding the other dragon endearing and sweet. She is prone to taking risks without thinking fully of the consequences, or trusting that some other dragon or person will be there to bail her out. As such, others usually scold her for it. You can only freefall through a storm once and expect Banajeth to catch you before you get yelled at.
