Candidate Cricket

Cricket

"I guess I believe in some rules, and I think rules in general can be useful, but I also think it's all right to stop and and question some of the rules sometimes, if they feel wrong to you."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire Both
NAME: Cricket
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/Her/Hers
ORIENTATION: Heteroromantic Heterosexual

BIRTHDATE: Spring of 2751
AGE: 19 as of 2770
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Amber
HAIR: Brown, lightly wavy.
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'6, lean.
FULL APPEARANCE:
Cricket has decided for herself that she looks decidedly ordinary. She has lightly wavy, shoulder length brown hair and warm amber eyes. Across her cheek bones and the bridge of her nose she has a light splattering of freckles. More often than not she can be seen squinting slightly. She is mildly nearsighted, but doesn't have the means to acquire correction to the problem. It doesn't affect her much unless she's reading, which, incidentally, is one of her favorite activities.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Cricket is a curious soul. She's rebellious and booky and has a hundred questions about everything all at once. She doesn't seem capable of thinking instead of speaking sometimes, and has overwhelmed people with how many questions she asks. She's not mean spirited in the slightest, and believes that there's something good to be had in all people, or most people, but convincing her that someone is a lost cause will be hard. That being said, she doesn't like to be told no or have her curiosity suppressed, and most likely won't take well to someone trying to.

There's also an element of nervousness that comes with having so many questions. Her childhood included many an instance of being told she asked too many questions about the wrong things. She often finds herself worrying that she'll say the wrong thing or ask the wrong question and make someone angry. Instances where this occurs affect her greatly, and she withdraws into herself for a time afterward. Silence from Cricket is an odd thing, and should be approached with kindness and gentle concern. She doesn't like making people worry, but sometimes that's out of her control.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Cadelle (Mother, estranged)
Katydid (Older Sister)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: A small hold beholden to Fort Weyr.
HISTORY: TW: Abuse/Neglect
Cricket was born to a small family, the only members being her, her older sister, and her mother. As she aged, she considered it to be a bit of a mixed bag when it came to them. Her older sister adored her, and loved her unconditionally. Her mother, well... the same couldn't be said for her. As Cricket grew, it became more and more obvious to her that her mother wasn't fond of her, or her sister. She was prone to be snippy and short tempered with both of them, to the point that Cricket developed unease around her.

Cricket was 8 when her mother handed her and her sister over to the Creche. She had decided at that point that they were both too much trouble to deal with, and she had better things to do with her time. There was a period of time where Cricket was saddened by the loss, as she desperately wanted her mother to like her despite everything, but her sister helped her realize that it was likely for the best that Creche life wasn't bad, anyway. She had Katydid there with her, and bigger, better dreams! She had always been told stories of dragonriding, but had considered them largely out of reach to her. Now, though, it was a bright, shining possibility! And, when she was 15, a searchdragon finally stopped by.

Candidacy required her to leave her sister, something she didn't want to do, but a little encouragement from Katydid, and promise that she would be in touch, solidified her decision to go to Fort.

IC Information

Does your character have any other preferences or concerns?: Nope!

OOC Information
If your character is a dual candidate IC, do you have a strong preference on whether they Impress dragon or wher?: N/A

What color(s) are you willing for your character to impress to?: Any!
Do you have any personality preferences or concerns?: Cricket is a good girl. She deserves a dragon who is nice to her. Otherwise, none!
Do you have any other preferences or concerns?: Nope!
Why do you think these choice/s would be a good fit?: Cricket was led to believe early in life that she was strange and too curious. She could use a dragon who will respond thoughtfully to her, not negatively. A dragon that will ask her questions too, make her think.

Bumblebee
Image


BASICS
NAME: Bumblebee (Nickname: Bee, Bug)
BIRTHDATE Early Summer 2770
AGE: 0 as of Early Summer 2770

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Brown
FULL APPEARANCE:
Not quite a gold, but a queen in her own right, Bumblebee is a very yellow brown. If it weren't for her markings and the fact that her hide isn't shiny, she could very easily be mistaken for a gold. Her face and feet are dark brown, and she has a few spots of faded brown on her body. Her tail is striped with the same dark brown all the way to the tip of her tail fork.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Bumblebee is a chatty firelizard. She likes to be held and does her very best to mimic human speech. She's a friend, first and foremost, even though she might act like a child or a bratty younger sister at times. She likes being helpful, and seems to take great pride in completing tasks successfully. She's not without her quirks, though. She seems particular about people, and categorizes them as friends, enemies, or entertainment.
