"Everybody has a secret world inside of them. All of the people of the
world, I mean everybody. No matter how dull and boring they are on the outside,
inside them they’ve all got unimaginable, magnificent, wonderful, stupid, amazing
worlds. Not just one world. Hundreds of them. Thousands maybe."
- Neil Gaiman


BASICS

NAME: B'lak
GENDER: Male
PRONOUNS: He/Him/His
ORIENTATION: Biromantic Bisexual

BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2747
AGE: 24 as of Summer 2771
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Garnet Rider
WING: Twilight Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Blond
HEIGHT AND BUILD: Average height and Wiry
PLAY-BY: William Macbeth (Blood Blockade Battlefront)
FULL APPEARANCE:
As far as looks go, B'lak is... a little misleading. He has a face that makes him appear younger than he is, and tends to dress in looser shirts that hide his build. As a child he was small and scrawny, but since adulthood and becoming a rider, he has filled out--if only a little. He's built with wiry muscle, more lean than bulk, so he still looks rather scrawny at first glance, but thanks to training and constant work he is much stronger than he appears. He likes to dress in darker-shaded clothing. He keeps his blond hair cut short, and his eyes are bright blue. Surprisingly, he doesn't have any noticeable scars.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: B'lak is a sweet and caring person, and also rather talkative. Although he is insecure and has low self-esteem, he has no problem with meeting people, introducing himself to new faces easily with a relaxed and friendly manner. He is also clumsy and a bit awkward, tending to panic in embarrassing situations. Despite his own insecurities, he seems to have no issue in poking fun at others in a good-natured sort of way. As long as they aren't offended or upset by it, of course. He would prefer not to push a sensitive issue for someone, knowing full well what it is like to be legitimately bullied.

B'lak likes to share his knowledge with others, though isn't obtuse about it. He strongly believes that any pursuit is worth being proud of. He is also incredibly protective, especially of his younger twin sister. Unfortunately, he does view himself as emotionally weak, and is easily brought to tears under stress or emotion, but is much stronger and braver than he gives himself credit for. He would, without hesitation, willingly put himself at risk for someone he is particularly close to, without regard to his own well-being, and has done so on more than one occasion for his sibling.

It takes a lot of mental preparation for him to fight in each Threadfall, and then some relaxation time following for his own mental well-being. He prefers to spend this time with Kinnirath or his sibling (preferably both).

HISTORY
FAMILY: Mother, Father - Deceased
Fraternal Twin Sister - Alive
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Cothold in Fort Territory
HISTORY:
B'lak was born a handful of minutes before his sister, making him, technically, the older between the two. Growing up in the small cothold beholden to Fort, their parents loved both of their children wholly and unconditionally, giving them both ample opportunity to succeed in their own way. As handlers of one of the Cothold's Watch-Whers, which their family had been for a few generations, they were excited to have two children to bond whers to when they matured. However, only B'lak seemed to draw the wher's attention, creating the implication that he would be the one to inherit the "family wher" when their parents passed.

Viewing himself as inferior to his sister, B'lak tried to close himself off from the wher and declared he did not want to pursue the family wish, though he would still have much encouragement from the entire family to do as he wished. His parents didn't push him to do something he didn't want to do, though they were saddened to hear he didn't wish to take up wherhandling.

The Turn of 2761 was a time of massive tragedy for Fort territory, it seemed. Golre declared war on the nearby Weyr and was later killed when launching a full-scale attack. A new dragon colour appears to the world, an immense shock and bad omen to many. What hit B'lak the hardest, however, was losing his parents. Threadfall in late fall of the year saw the handler pair off to assist with the aftermath, news of Thread that had taken root near the cothold--only for a sinkhole caused by said burrows to collapse beneath them, taking both parents and their wher with it. B'lak was devastated by the news of their loss.

A clutch would see Searchriders out two seasons later, and B'lak would be Searched alongside his sibling and taken to the Weyr. Reasonably rattled after hearing about the previous Hatching where the Gold hatchling killed a candidate, it was to his great surprise that he Impressed to his Garnet Kinnirath. Although he wasn't frail, Weyrling training was tough for him, and their first Threadfall was severe (and mildly traumatic for B'lak)--though both rider and dragon escaped miraculously unscathed.

Between violent Hatchings, attempted kidnappings, eggs vanishing into oblivion or appearing from nowhere (he deeply worries for the day Kinnirath might clutch) and now the tenuous peace between High Reaches and Fort evaporating... Really, B'lak just wished for peace and quiet.

Maybe he should move to Semaca.

KINNIRATH

Image


BASICS

NAME: Kinnirath
BIRTHDATE Late Summer 2762
AGE: 9 as of Summer 2771

BIRTHPLACE: Fort Weyr (Cosmic)
DAM: Gold Keahith (Lanian)
SIRE: Bronze Eoreanth (M'rnei)

CLUTCHING
CLUTCHING: Yes
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 40ft
HEIGHT: 10ft
WINGSPAN: 60ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #625083

FULL APPEARANCE:
Kinnirath is a large garnet, and she is very aware of it. She has an intimidating, commanding presence, and it is pretty easy to just feel her before she actually is seen. She is built strong with powerful hind legs and a whip-thin tail. Her face is narrow and pointed, her wings broad. Her colors are a deep purple and an almost blood red. The purple covers most of her body and the backs of her wingsails. The red colors her underside, and her feet, like a canine's coloration. The color paints the undersides of her wingsails as well. On her sides, over her ribs, are bright pockets of an almost white-purple, like luminescent spots.


PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Kinnirath may have the presence of a queen, but she is very aware that she is not, and that is okay with her. She doesn't want to grab power. She doesn't want to get involved in a power struggle. She'd rather find a quiet place to rest, and a quiet weyr where she can just live out her turns in peace. She has a talent for picking out music and tunes, and though she cannot replicate them herself, she enjoys listening to what humans can come up with, and what expressions can be made through song. Kinnirath sees herself as a mother, wanting to learn from elders and pass down knowledge to anyone younger than herself.

To her rider, Kinnirath will be very, very sure they do not seek fights or do not harm others. Self-defense is one thing, looking for a problem is another. She is a wonderful caretaker, and she does want to see her human succeed, but she doesn't want to be overbearing or smothering. She is afraid of being left alone and forgotten. Kinnirath finds comfort in the stars, and will volunteer frequently for any sort of evening or night shift, even if it will leave her very tired in the morning.


VOICE
VOICE:
Kinnirath's voice is soft, and sometimes garbled, as if there are several voices speaking at once. She likes to call older dragons and leaders by titles, such as calling golds (or any female dragon older than her) "Old Queens" or bronzes by "Old Soldiers". She rarely uses "I", instead using "we", not out of a sense of superiority, but as a sense of feeling that she is a part of something greater.


EXTRA

Hopeful Light Egg
Image

"A larger egg, this one looks almost like it glows. Sure, it is a trick of the light, but that doesn't help things being spooky and some candidates spreading stories about it glowing. It's a dark egg, with a bright spring-green-yellow band curling from the top and wrapping around the bottom, dotted with crescents. This egg seems to be calm, and rather serene."

INSPIRATION: Rachni Queen (Mass Effect)

Willa
Image


BASICS

NAME: Willa
BIRTHDATE Spring 2771
AGE: ~3 Months as of Summer 2771


APPEARANCE
COLOR: Green
FULL APPEARANCE:
A soft pastel green, her body is flecked with brighter green from her feet coming up to about the midpoint of her body. Her head is a similar shade of light green. From her head toward her tail is a soft gradient, not incredibly noticeable unless you squint.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Willa is a gentle, quiet green. She loves to listen to music from Harpers. She spends a lot of her time with wild faires, but always stays close enough to hear her bonded if or when he needs her. She's openly affectionate and likes to sleep with her human, either curled up beside him or in his belongings.
