"Ah... Hmm. Unimpressive."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Adopt
NAME: Ryoko
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/Her/Hers
ORIENTATION: Heteroromantic Heterosexual

BIRTHDATE: Early Spring 2739
AGE: 31 as of Early Summer 2770
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wherhandler, Dusk Squadleader
WING: Dusk Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Ice Blue
HAIR: Black, very long and slightly wavy.
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6' 3", lithe.
PLAY-BY: Ryoko Tamiya (Parasyte)
FULL APPEARANCE:
Ryoko is a tall, imposing presence. She towers over a good portion of PERN's population, and has enough muscle to avoid looking like a scrawny tree. She has long, slightly wavy black hair that reaches to her mid back, and piercing ice blue eyes. Intimidating as she is, she manages to be somewhat of a gentle giant. She's surprisingly delicate with how she handles objects, though it may have something to do with her long, slender fingers.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Ryoko is judgmental and self important. Anyone that doesn't live up to her expectations is below her, no exceptions. She expects everyone to live up to her ideals, and if they don't then they're a lost cause. Her political views are traditional, and exasperated by the fact that she impressed a gold wher. Garnets have no place in the color hierarchy, and she privately dislikes them. Colors should stay in their designates roles, and greens have no business clutching when there are the proper, ideal golds to do so.

Despite this, she cares deeply for the weyr she has a part in protecting. Her standards might be high, but part of the reason they exist is to keep the weyr functioning like it should. She might not be weyrlady, but she considers her role to be extremely important and treats it as such. She's content to let oddities exist, so long as they don't get in her way. Those that downplay her role will be met with cold, blatant animosity.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Luvenia (Mother)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: A Minor hold near Fort Weyr
HISTORY:
Ryoko was born to a prideful but distant woman and a father whom she never met. Luvenia is very largely the reason for her ideals as a grown woman. She wasn't neglectful, but she wasn't very motherly to Ryoko either. She learned early on that, to get the most positive attention from her mother, she had to assimilate to her standards. She was to be a proper young lady, and grow up learning that only the best would be accepted. And of course, she did just that.

At 16, she was surprised to be picked up by a searchdragon. Her mother approved, which surprised her just as much. Luvenia had never spoken of admiring riders, but she insisted it was a great honor, and encouraged Ryoko to accept. That was all the convincing she needed, and off she went to Fort Weyr as a candidate.

Several turns of standing for dragon clutches discouraged her. She, personally, had never had ambitions of flying, and was growing impatient with the lack of a suitable match. By 20, she had become a dual candidate in hope of speeding the process along a bit, and by 21 she had decided that her future lay with whers, not dragons. Whers, in her opinion had a job just as important as dragons, with some flexibility in impressions. Though, the rate of wher clutches didn't seem to be in her favor. Luckily, within her 22nd turn, she was able to save up enough to purchase one.

A large egg, of course. She would only have the best. A big, strong partner to help her with her goals. And, as her luck would have it, that egg hatched into a gold. The most ideal partner for her.

Ryosk's ideals didn't quite align with hers, but that was to be expected from a purchased egg. They worked well enough together, and learned how to keep differing opinions to themselves over the course of wherlinghood. Ryoko relaxed somewhat as she aged, and in response Ryosk began to voice her own opinions on things. Though it didn't change her mind much, Ryoko accepted them.

The chaos surrounding the weyr after High Reaches stole Neozeoth's eggs wasn't strange to her. While she didn't much care for garnet eggs, the principle of High Reaches being able to steal them angered her. It didn't help that Ryosk was furious. Eggs were eggs to her, and High Reaches had committed an unforgivable sin. Their stretch of the search was conducted meticulously, and sparked irritation when it yielded no results. But of course, High Reaches had dragons, and they were long gone. Ryoko didn't consider it a failure on her part, just a reason to grow. A reason to perfect her handler skills, and maybe a reason to acquire another partner.

Ryosk

BASICS

NAME: Ryosk
BIRTHDATE Early Winter 2761
AGE: 8 as of Early Winter 2769

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: <1

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 17 ft
HEIGHT: 5.25 ft
COLOR: Gold
HEX CODE: #F0C332
FULL APPEARANCE:
Ryosk is long and surprisingly elegant, for a wher anyway. She has a long tail and narrow face, on the thinner end for whers. She's built for running more than heavy lifting, though she is still quite strong. She is a pretty standard shade of gold, verging on orange-gold almost. Her markings are paler. The insides of her wingsails are solid, pale gold. She has several swirls of the same color on her hide, adorned with circular spots following the curvature of the swirls. On both shoulders, she has three rings of pale gold, and her front paws look like fancy stockings of sorts.
PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Ryosk is quiet. She doesn't speak much, and when she does she favors one or two word sentences. Her speech isn't necessarily more fragmented than the typical wher, she just doesn't feel the need to say more most of the time. She's fairly neutral on most things, and her opinions aren't expressed strongly. They simply are. One thing she feels strongly about are eggs; dragon, wher, and firelizard alike. She is indiscriminately motherly towards eggs and young creatures. The thought of eggs of her own brings out a fiercely protective side of her that isn't often seen in other situations.

Ryosks voice is always a hiss, almost as if she struggles to speak. Some of her words are drawn out, and she'll never sound anything but hoarse when she raises her voice.
