BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Adopt
NAME: Asherah, "Ash"
GENDER: Male
PRONOUNS: He/Him/His
ORIENTATION: Pansexual Panromantic

BIRTHDATE: Summer 2745
AGE: 24 as of Fall 2769
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Bronzerider
WING: Midnight Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Very pale blond
HEIGHT AND BUILD: Roughly 6'1," willowy
PLAY-BY: Nier - NieR RepliCant
FULL APPEARANCE:
Ash was born with light skin, light hair, and light eyes. He also leans on the tall side of "male average," and while awkward and gangling as a child well into his teens, he filled into a rather handsome adult. As if in an attempt to make himself blend into the background, he typically dresses very casually in muted tones of greys and browns. Ash does tend to keep up with fashions at the least, though only casually, and does have a secondary, more colourful outfit worn for particularly special occasions. His hair is kept a bit long for a dragonrider, layered loosely in an angle from his jaw to his shoulderblades at the back, silk-soft and well-kept. He has difficulty growing facial hair and is generally clean-shaven. His fingers are long and thin, quite delicate-looking despite Turns as a dragonrider.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
A kindly and gentle soul, in another life he may have done well as a mindhealer. He would rather listen than speak, and when he does his voice is soft, having a gentle and soothing, almost lyrical tone to it. This does mean his opinion is often overlooked or gone unheard, unless someone else brings attention to him. Outside observers tend see him as a meek pushover--a poor excuse for someone who could potentially be a Weyrleader. Far from it; he's quite stubborn, and very firm in his own opinion when he has one. However, because he rarely tends to speak out unless absolutely necessary, he does nothing to dispel these opinions. On the other hand, this indifference can also be seen by some as callousness, especially since he doesn't tend to have extreme reactions to things. Level-headed even when he's the cause, he's good to have in an emergency--unless you need someone shouting out orders rather than getting something done.

He dislikes physical contact save with those he is particularly close with, but may tolerate it in small doses depending on his opinion of the individual. Ash typically shows his own affection through gestures rather than words--something as little as leaning on someone can mean quite a lot from him--which can lead to misunderstandings or hurt feelings with those who need verbal affirmation. He does have a lovely singing voice, but is actually quite bashful about this and uncomfortable with singing in front of others. Instrument playing is a leisure hobby of his, and this he does not mind sharing with others, but will only play for a very small audience--he is skilled in both lute and harp, though has only saved enough to acquire a personal lute thus far.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Leserah - Father - Holder - Deceased (Sickness)
Ashilen - Mother - Holder - Alive
Lesilen - Sibling - Harper - Presumed Alive
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None Currently
BIRTHPLACE: Small Cothold near Ista Weyr
HISTORY:
Asherah was prematurely born the oldest child to a couple living in a tiny cothold near Ista Weyr. This led the couple to initially believe that the boy was frail and sickly. They sheltered him for a large portion of his childhood, paying the local Harper to give him private lessons, hidden away from the burning sun and other children who may have "gotten him sick." This did result in stunting him socially somewhat, however well-intentioned the couple was. The attention would lessen on him when his younger sibling was born, but he was still restricted to mostly-sheltered locations due to his tendency to burn badly in the sun. When he was finally old enough to pursue a Craft, he would opt for Tailorcraft (despite his teacher's pleadings to pursue Harpercraft), departing his family to learn at the Southern Boll crafthall. It would be shortly after arriving here that he would discover a clutch of firelizard eggs, bonding to a little green he names "Smudge."

Life at the Hall was about what he was used to, working from morning to night on his lessons. At the very least there were many more people present to speak toand learn from, though he quickly found he wasn't a fan of socializing with large groups. Things at the crafthall were fairly uneventful, and while news of the troubles related to the Weyrs was brought to them, Ash was more concerned with his education. This focus did lead to him graduating to Journeyman slightly on the early end of age, at eighteen Turns.

From the crafthall he would travel north for some time, stopping at various Holds along the way and picking up tips and tricks from the crafters there, things that weren't taught in the Hall and could only be learned through experience in the field. Along the way he encountered Searchriders pulling together individuals for an upcoming clutch at High Reaches. Though he initially declined, he would approach them again before their departure and instead leave with them. To some degree of personal amusement, the Hatching would occur around his own Turnday. Despite the tragedy of a Candidate's death, he would Impress to bronze Kakarith.

Through Weyrlinghood and beyond, the young man would keep his head down and largely do everything he could to avoid bringing himself into the conflict between Fort and High Reaches. Being somewhat of a wallflower, even with a bronze, sometimes paid off. He was able to arrange transfer to Fort shortly before the elections at High Reaches would take place.

Smudge

P2U Base © Mistywren - Colour by Tyto

BASICS

NAME: Smudge
BIRTHDATE Spring 2754
AGE: 15 as of Fall 2769

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #1D978B
FULL APPEARANCE:
Smudge is a soft shade of sea green, with each of her four legs and her tail dipped in a greenish white. Over her hide spatter a mix of lighter and darker spots, as if someone took a paintbrush, dipped it in paint, and flicked it at her from a distance. She does have a small spot on the very tip of her nose, "smudged" up toward her forehead. This little firelizard is certainly more dainty and petite, with narrow wings and slim form allowing her quick movement.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
To match her dainty appearance, Smudge is somewhat of a little princess. She prefers the finer things from her bonded, from the best sitting position on his shoulder to the treats he shares with her. She will also spend quite some time very meticulously arranging her "nest" she sleeps in at night. Prim and fussy, she has an odd fondness for soft fabrics, and actually likes to wear little garments made especially for her. Like the other two making up the trio (and most firelizards, it seems), she also loves music and "singing." When Ash plays, she will often "dance" in the air around him.

Kakarith
Image

BASICS

NAME: Kakarith
BIRTHDATE Summer 2764
AGE: 5 Turns as of Fall 2769


APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 52 feet
HEIGHT: 13 feet
WINGSPAN: 78 feet
COLOR: Bronze
HEX CODE: #54550c
FULL APPEARANCE: Slightly in the smaller end of bronzes, but no less magnificent, Kakarith is a slender, delicate-looking dragon. Every part of him looks like he was properly sculpted and making sure that he was going to be a handsome dragon. He has fine legs and narrow wings, and he is incredibly acrobatic. He is a fine bronze all over, properly shiny at all angles. The tips of his wingsails fade into a darker bronze color, and it all makes his markings pop. His markings are a pale, almost silvery-bronze, across nose like a mask, and over his neck like harp strings. There's strings curling over his legs, and his chest has a big white eye-like marking. There are geometric shapes across his back, wingsails, and legs.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Kakarith is a very observant dragon, the sort who seems to keep his thoughts close at hand and watch others to learn and study their character. He's very clever and works well with others; that is to say, he seems to have a talent for seeing where people's talents lie, and to offer complimentary abilities that make the two blend into something wholly better. In this way, he has a vast array of talent on his own, a knack for picking up skills and being decent at them. He is not a master in any one way, but he is competent with many things.

Kakarith has a love for music, particularly harps, and is very fond of going to listen to the stories and songs that Harpers often weave. In his own way, he is wise and thoughtful, and often offers odd, archaic bits of knowledge that do not seem to make sense at first but always have a way of working out into some semblance of truth. He is also extremely fit and capable, being an excellent flier and combatant. He focuses heavily on helping others and being a protector, and in this way finds his niche in life.
