EXPY SOURCE: N/A
FULL APPEARANCE:
Tamin stands at 5' 10" and is lighter in build than most, but can still perform his duties exceptionally. Oddly enough, his expression always seems blank, but that's his resting expression; stoic and neutral. No freckles mar his skin, which is perpetually light, no matter how long he spends outdoors. Almond-shaped and always alert, his eyes are a rich blue color, though rarely giving away what he's feeling. In a shaggy mop that's always getting in his eyes, his hair is black, gleaming dully like a raven's wing. Dressing simply, they choose function above fashion, while still looking presentable. More often than not, he's seen in shirts and slacks, topped by a dark sweater, as well as sound leather boots. Otherwise, he wears his riding leathers.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Overall, Tamin is a pleasant person. Being quiet and reserved, it can be hard to see how he hides a strong determination and drive to succeed, as well as remarkable intelligence. Betraying nothing he doesn't want others to see, his face seems to range from terrifyingly blank or completely neutral. Though they may not be terribly stubborn, they still won't tolerate someone trying to push them; he'll calmly identify flaws in someone's plan and suggest a better alternative. Tamin is very devoted to carrying out his duties, proudly pulling his weight and doing his fair share, aiming for perfection in everything he does. Being very dedicated, he will almost always follow orders and respect his superiors, even to the point of exhausting himself. But under extreme circumstances, he'll refuse an order, if doing so would violate his morals.

Tamin fears loud noises, particularly thunder. Though time and maturity has seen him better able to manage his fear, sudden loud noises will cause him to tense up at best and bolt at worst. During thunderstorms, he ends up practically paralyzed, hiding in his quarters and often searching for comfort, usually in Tamisk. Heavily introverted, he doesn't take well to large social gatherings, though he'll always attend as per his duties. Tamin prefers engaging intelligent and quiet sorts, those who he has traits in common, shying from boisterous or outspoken folk; conversation can be overwhelming if his company is too energetic. Tamin doesn't seem to be terribly fond of recreational activities; given a choice between socializing and doing something he sees as worthwhile, he'll do that worthwhile thing, including retiring to bed early. Wasting time is tantamount to a sin to him and he sees most social engagements other than Gathers or feasts, events that include every member of a Weyr, as not being worth his time and energy. Tamin is a bit of a workaholic, but he understands he has limits, though he usually disregards them in favor of completing his duties.

Tamin cares for his Tamisk immensely, devoting all his free time to making sure she's in peak condition and perfect health. If he has time left after his duties are complete and he feels he needs a break, Tamin will settle near Tamisk and spend time in her company. All while taking on a mountain of work, he does his utmost to keep his wher happy and comfortable, seeing it as his highest priority. For everyone else, his smiles are rare and must be earned, often coming off as distant and aloof. While he respects dragons and finds them interesting, Tamin had no interest in being a dragonrider himself; he'd like to keep his feet firmly grounded, thank you very much. Whers always caught his interest from a young age, while dragonriders seemed to get a lot more praise and notice, which is exactly what Tamin wanted to avoid.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Parents - both dragonriders - both living (presumed)
Siblings/Half-Siblings - none to his knowledge - open tie(s)!
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Telgar Weyr
HISTORY:
A green rose and was flown, resulting in Tamin's birth roughly nine months later. Raised in Telgar's creche as a weyrbrat, he kept to himself from a very young age. Though he had few friends, life was still good for young Tamin, for he had lessons to keep him busy. Countless things to learn, he wanted to learn it all. Throwing himself headlong into learning, he devoured every bit of knowledge was was provided and demanded more. Progressing through his lessons quickly, he almost immediately began taking on more and more chores around Telgar. Tamin was and always has been eager to do his fair share and more, to be useful and ease his superiors' workload.

Though he was eligible for Candidacy at fifteen, Tamin did not Stand. Why? One, he wasn't fond of heights. And two, he found whers to be absolutely amazing. Tamin considered that if he did Impress a dragon and his bonded died, a real possibility fighting Thread, he'd be left suffering, from what he'd learned of being dragonless. But Impressing a whers, that pain might be less, which meant he'd still be able to function and serve his Weyr. So he left a dragonrider's privilege and honor to interested parties and pursued volunteered for Candidacy at seventeen, standing for wher clutches soon after.

It was also in that timespan that Tamin began to feel a little...strange. Something was wrong and he didn't like it. After sevendays of trying to understand what was up, he found its source: himself. Tamin realized he felt uncomfortable being singularly masculine in gender, soon deciding to explore, soon quietly and politely requesting nonbinary pronouns, though still accepting masculine ones. About a Turn afterward, they made a second discovery: except perhaps a spark of friendship now and again, he had no interest in women. Quickly coming to understand his orientation, he since proceeded about his usual routine; so far, they've met no one that has sparked romantic interest, which doesn't trouble them.

In 2769, on a warm summer night, Tamin attended a wher hatching. It wasn't his first hatching, where he'd been passed up, so he arrived hopeful, but not expectant. That was where they realized they were now in possession of a wher egg. Out hatched his gorgeous garnet and they were cemented quickly, much to Tamin's joy. Afterward, he proudly entered wherling classes, graduating well before he entered active duty. Accepting his place proudly, Tamin was eager to make his mark. But both grew restless in Telgar. While both worked hard, it seemed like trying to walk in quicksand; there was always more that had to be done. It didn't help that Tamin and Tamisk had an ongoing disagreement involving another wherhandler. After Tamin fell asleep in at mealtime, drained from a long day of working his hardest and a new bout of arguing, Tamisk insisted on taking action.

So Tamin applied for transfer to Fort, hopeful he and Tamisk would find a fresh start in a new Weyr

UPDATES
  • Early Spring 2773: Tamisk runs and chooses garnet-blue Relsk, later laying a clutch of four eggs! [Clutch]
  • Late Fall 2774: Tamin is promoted to Squadsecond!
  • Late Spring 2775: In Threadfall, Tamisk smells a burrow just before Tamin can walk straight into it. While she manages to stop him, she can't stop herself from falling in as ground beneath her gives way; her left foreleg and wing are badly scored. (Major)

Tamisk

BASICS

NAME: Tamisk
BIRTHDATE: Late Summer 2769
AGE: 7 as of 2776

CLUTCHING

RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 13.5 ft.
HEIGHT: 4.5 ft.
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #59098B
FULL APPEARANCE:
While her build is graceful, Tamisk is agile and light, letting her keep up as well as everyone else. Comprised of various shades of purple, her throat is a light lilac color, which flows along her flanks to her tail. While her legs and her wingsails are royal purple, dark purple covers much of her face, behind her wings, and along her body in dots, as though it dripped down her flanks.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Tamisk is a noble garnet, always holding her head high and stepping carefully, gazing at others in a manner befit a queen; regal and proud. Unless she's spoken to first or Tamin introduces her and it would be proper to give a word or two, she doesn't often speak to others. While she isn't extroverted, she'll put in her two cents where it feels necessary, standing by her opinions. Though she knows she can't be right in everything, she doesn't take well to being corrected in a disrespectful manner. Unless it's to defend herself or her handler, she does not bite or otherwise fight.

To her bonded, Tamisk is his closest confidant. Though she doesn't initiate physical contact often, she allows Tamin and select few others to cuddle her if they need that closeness, enjoying it immensely. Tamisk takes duties assigned to her very seriously, not resting until she sees her work complete. While a bit aloof, she's not cold or heartless, taking it upon herself to be an encouraging force to keep spirits high. Once it's time to rest, Tamisk keeps a watchful eye on her bonded. While she doesn't baby him, she does urge him to take it easy sometimes, to relax and quit working so hard. Additionally, Tamisk is a motherly wher who enjoys dragonets, wherlets, and children.

VOICE: Tamisk sounds distinctly feminine, her voice warm, but firm and confident if she needs to be.
