ORIENTATION: Romantic Homosexual

BIRTHDATE: Late Summer 2744
AGE: 23 as of Late Fall 2767
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Grey
HAIR: Black
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 11" Lean
PLAY-BY: Keith Kogane (Voltron Legendary Defender)
FULL APPEARANCE: Keith is of average height with a lean, athletic build. He has thick black hair with uneven bangs that fall in his face and curl slightly at his nape. He's on the pale side with eyes that are steely grey, particularly intense when he's focusing hard on something. He tends to keep a straight posture, though he's just as likely as anyone else to slouch when tired. Most of his clothing is practical and not particularly flashy, though he tends toward reds as that is his favorite color.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
At first glance, Keith comes across as a hotheaded loner, something he doesn't try to dispute. He has trouble opening up to others due to bullying he suffered as a child, and as such his first instinct is to push people away. Underneath that hardened exterior is a vibrant young man with a lot to offer. He's loyal to those he deems his friends and will go to the Red Star and back to keep them safe. He can be awkward around them if he misses social cues, such as confusing good-natured teasing for genuine insult and may lash out. He's not too proud to apologize, though, and will do so once he's simmered down and reflected on the situation.

Outside of personal social situations, Keith is rather perceptive, though this perception can be clouded by his emotions and cause him to miss things. This can lead to impulsive decisions that may not always be the right ones. When he takes a breath and focuses, he's quick on his feet and can read a situation to determine the right course of action. He's cautious when needed, but has the courage to dive into dangerous situations or knowing when not to act.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Mother: Krolia of Green Marmoreth
Father: Taran
SIGNIFICANT OTHER:
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches
HISTORY:
Born the one and only to Greenrider Krolia and herder as a result of a Flight, Keith spent his childhood in the creche. He was attached to his mother at the hip, spending as much time with her as her position allowed. He idolized her and Marmoreth even if the rest of the Weyr didn't. When he wasn't with his mother, he was 'helping' his father care for the Weyr's herdbeasts, though as a small child he was more in the way than anything. His father didn't mind, enjoying his little one's enthusiasm. He'd be able to help in his own way once he got bigger. Krolia tried to keep the harsh realities of Golre's reign from her boy, but it was abundantly clear where she stood in the hierarchy. Between the war and Golre and Vizeth's tyranny dragonback was the last place she wanted Keith, even if he wanted to if only to help her.

It only became worse when he began his lessons. Keith was defiant, prone to talking back to his instructors and had a hard time sitting still. He was outspoken as a child as to the injustices facing dragons who weren't Bronze or Gold. His reasoning was about as articulate as a young child could be ("It's wrong!"), but it still brought him scoldings and ridicule from his teachers and peers alike. It took many a talk from both parents before he grudgingly let things go, if only to keep himself from facing worse punishment than he already had. He withdrew and kept to himself for the most part, having alienated many of his classmates. The only place he stood out was during physical activities, preferring to be active to reading. Knife fighting became his favorite past time as soon as he was old enough to learn.

He was eleven turns when the war ended, though that meant little for the state of High Reaches. Golre was still Weyrwoman and it was business as usual. As soon as he was old enough to stand he became a candidate not entirely by choice even if that was a path he'd considered for himself, just maybe not at High Reaches. Still, he stood in earnest, because those dragons did nothing wrong and deserved to have people to pick from. It was a miserable in the beginning, but two turns after he'd begun standing Golre made one final attack on Fort where she and Vizeth were killed.

Things began to change after that, and being a candidate wasn't so terrible anymore. Keith actually began to look forward to hatchings, though he continued to be passed up time and time again. He started transferring to other weyrs to stand at their hatchings, his frustration mounting each time he wasn't picked. Not one to give up, he continued standing, hoping that soon he'd Impress and be able to be a proper rider.

SHINADOTH
Image


BASICS

NAME: Shinadoth
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2768
AGE: 0 as of Early Fall 2768

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 36 Feet
HEIGHT: 9 Feet
WINGSPAN: 54 Feet
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #1e253d
FULL APPEARANCE:
A hulking, bulky blue, Shinadoth is muscular and large. He is winning no speed contests anytime soon, his movements lumbering at best. He is slow to take-off and slow to settle into a landing. That said, he is a strong blue. He is a pale denim-blue all over, with a darker underbelly that is broken up by darker blue spots and splotches over his entire underside down to his tail. There is a dark blue diamond over his snout, with a darker line and small blocks on the outer line. The backs of his wingsails are a darker blue.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Shinadoth is a dragon of dualities. He wants to see the best in humanity but he sees the anger, sadness, and despair most of all. And it angers him that no one is doing anything to change this world. No one is able to prevent the bad parts of their lives, be it regrets, despair, or Thread, and why is no one bothering to try? How dare they, really! That anger festers in him. That anger will keep growing in him, finding outlets in fighting Thread and what he could one day be. He is emotional, there is no doubt about that.

To his rider, Shinadoth is constantly questioning. Why do they not try harder? Why does Pern not unite under one banner? Why don't they try to do something better? He feels like he has something to prove, and something to show. Deep down, he wants Pern to be a better place. He wants things to grow and be prosperous. He deeply wants things to just be better and he doesn't know how to do it.

VOICE:
Shindaoth's voice is deep, like echoes in the mountains.

ROMELLE
Image

BASICS

NAME: Romelle
BIRTHDATE Late Summer 2768
AGE: 0 as of 2768

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Gold
FULL APPEARANCE:
Romelle is a delicate looking firelizard. She's average in size, but very slender in build. She's deceptively strong, though. When determined, she can give a rather strong headbutt. Her hide is a bright goldenrod with darker swirls on her shoulders and flanks. Her wings are a pale gold.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Romelle is a bubbly, enthusiastic firelizard, embracing life with more energy than a creature her size should have. She's always checking on Keith and making sure he's doing okay. She can be a bit dim sometimes when it comes to performing tasks for her boy, but she usually manages to figure things out. Reflective surfaces confuse her. She tries to solve many of her problems by headbutting them with varying success, occasionally failure and lost marks for Keith when he has to replace something she breaks. She's not fond of Shinadoth, but perches on his head anyway.
