Kami

BASICS

NAME: Kami
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Meh, doesn't matter.

BIRTHDATE: Born Fall 2747
AGE: 24 as of 2771
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Weryling/Dragonrider
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Bright Green
HAIR: Vantablack (because I'm being cute)
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'3 - Tall and curvaceous
PLAY-BY: Original art
FULL APPEARANCE:

Kami is considered quite the beauty by most. A lovely feminine face, with sharp eyes that can cut with a mere glance. With a small slightly turned up nose and thin chin, she almost always accentuates her facial features with powders and rouges, to make sure she's generally noticed when she enters a room. Kami usually looks almost bored and uninterested much of the time, but can turn that into a charming smile with trilling laughter in a mere second.

Her hair is an almost impossibly black, being perfectly straight and long enough it a reaches the back of her knees. She typically has sections pulled in loops on the sides and into a small bun at the back of her head, letting a large deluge of hair remain loose below it. It can be quite the burden, but she takes takes immense pride in it and it shows. She also has a bust to easily get her on the board of the 'tiggle biddy committee'.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:

At first glance, Kami seems like the book definition of a 'femme fatale', and she unfortunately could be considered that. She's very calculating and isn't above manipulating to get what she wants or have things go her way. This trait did not come about from her own desires or experiences, but she was merely raised this way and considering it has worked relatively well, she sees no reason to try other methods (yet).

Kami can be very superficial about her appearance; she must look her best or as best as she can in the situation. As she knows she looks quite appealing, she is not above using that to her advantage, whether by catching someone off-guard or playing the part of 'helpless maiden'. One might think she'd be as superficial for everyone else's appearance as well, but it's hard to know if that is true. Her aloof expression, as she looks someone over might hint that, but she'll only say something if she feels slighted by that person. Her tongue can be quite sharp and she has no problem cutting someone to the bone with her words if she feels the need.

Despite having little interest in intellectual pursuits, Kami is rather smart and quite good at predicting outcomes on her logical observations. Life is all about moving the pieces so that one can claim victory at the end of it, and it's only made sweeter when the opponent in none the wiser.
For all these seemingly 'underhanded' type of traits, Kami actually has very little ambition to 'be on top' or 'the best' or much of anything else. Since many aspects of her life were decided for her prior to this, at this point she doesn't really know what she wants for herself now. She atleast appreciates she has the chance to do so.

One of her favorite past-times is to comb and pamper her hair. Her hair means a great deal to her, as it was something she felt she had a say over and was allowed to take care of all herself. Deep down, she can be very devoted and doting, though she is largely unaware currently. It wouldn't be hard for someone to misinterpret when she's playing for her own gain or being genuine, and perhaps the same could be said of Kami as well.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Father (mystery~), Mother (alive but estranged now) (no siblings)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: -
BIRTHPLACE: Minor Hold near Fort Weyr
HISTORY:

Kami was born to a moderate but unimpressive family in a hold, beholden to Fort. Her father was not present for any of her childhood, and she has no memory or attachment to him. Her mother, strangely seemed almost disgruntled and spoke of him in poor taste. Whether he died or left them is unclear, and relatively unimportant. As such, Kami was left to be raised solely by her mother, who by the time she was born, was quite sick of being so low in her lot in life. They were never in threat of going hungry but surely there was better out there for them.

Finding her daughter to be quite pleasant in appearance and personality, the older woman knew she would grow to be a well-off adult, and thus expected Kami to reciprocate by making something of herself and pulling them from the wallows of 'poverty', as her mother called it.

From an early age, Kami was taught to prioritize her looks and use them for her own gain. Kami's mother had little hope for her daughter in much of anything but her appearance. Being from a minor hold, there was a general lack of options for her raise herself above their current standing. So, the solution her mother came to was to have Kami 'marry up', whether to a Lord Holder or someone of similar standing.

It didn't particularly matter whom, but the person had to be someone impressive: with a useful skill that would bring prestige or wealth and a good name. Her mother dreamed for Kami to catch the eye of someone from the Blooded families, but they had to be realistic.

Though Kami went along with such things obediently, she never grew close with her mother other than seeing her as a mere guardian. Someone simply trying to improve her future, but one that did not offer much in terms of love. Kami didn't really share her mother's 'ambitions', but ultimately went along with them as she also disliked her current life and hoped for better. Even if she didn't have specific requirements as her mother did. Frankly, after hearing it her whole life, she had no expectations for herself other than being something 'pretty' to admire.

Kami's future seemed set for one path, until a passing Searchrider and their dragon came across her. While her mother had not been present at the time, a sudden new option was offered to Kami. The woman had no interest in dragon riding or weyr life before that day, or even conceived the notion, but suddenly her options seemed changed in an instant. Whether she was capable of more than being something to look at, Kami was unsure still. But, she was unhappy as she was currently and was not really content anymore with the idea of simply being handed off like a bartered item for mother's gain and satisfaction.

Unsurprising, Kami's mother was ecstatic to hear of her daughter's chance to be a possible dragonrider. This would be just as fortunate as a good marriage choice, though now they had to figure how to make this arrangement work for the both of them. The most obvious option would be for Kami to bring her parent with her to the Weyr, to be able to finally bask in the payoff of all her hard work.

For the first time in her life, Kami did not want to simply go along with things just because of her mother's demands.

In a spur of selfish desire, Kami left for Fort Weyr to become a candidate on her own, leaving her mother to remain where she was. Whether this proved fruitful or not, it mattered little to her now. For once, Kami wanted to make a decision for herself and it was time she paved her own future, and let her mother handle her own now. She wanted to experience a life that was different than what she'd been told she would have to eventually accept. A life without having to cater to the desires of her parental figure simply because the other was unhappy with their own lot.

UPDATES
  • 2773 - Kami impress to Garnet Silksoth. Silksoth, being unable to find her at first, bites at the other candidates - drawing blood on one's ankle.

Silksoth
Image


BASICS

NAME: Silksoth
BIRTHDATE Early Spring 2773
AGE: Newborn as of Early Spring 2773

CLUTCHING
CLUTCHING: Yes
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 34ft
HEIGHT: 8.5ft
WINGSPAN: 51ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #b73e3f
FULL APPEARANCE:
While she is quite small for a garnet, Silksoth nevertheless manages to look at least a bit fearsome. Markings resembling cobwebs drape across her wings and onto her back. Her base color is a deep crimson and her her face is a pale pink. Her build is lean and she is quick in the air, perfectly capable of whiplash turns and sudden bursts of speed. Her face is long and narrow.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Silksoth is a dragon that judges a book by its cover. She is a cautious dragon, finding that a quick judgment first saves a headache later. She is always pleased to be proven wrong about someone, but not until she has put them through her own internal challenges. If someone unknowingly conforms to her expectations, then she changes her stance on them, but her standards are high. She is a fighter, throwing herself into defending the Weyr without hesitation. She seemingly has no fear, keeping herself regal and guarded among those around her. She does not truly see herself as part of the clutch, they are hardly siblings in her mind, they were just there when she was hatched.

Though somewhat arrogant, Silksoth will need her rider to earn her trust. This is easier said than done, as the garnet has her own ideas of how things should be done. Once that trust is gained, however, she is a powerful ally. She is strong, and deep down truly wishes to believe in the best in those around her, though she finds it harder and harder to do some months. She has little interest in firelizards or children, finding them too bothersome to deal with.

Voice: Though her voice is somewhat high-pitched, Silksoth speaks deliberately and without a lot of flowery language. She is very to the point.


Why Me?: Silksoth sees a powerful ally in Kami. Maybe they're alike, maybe they're too alike, but she's made her choice.
