BASICS

NAME:Kinley
GENDER: Male
PRONOUNS: he/him/his
ORIENTATION: Taken

BIRTHDATE: Summer 2711
AGE: 59 as of 2770
LOCATION: High Reaches
OCCUPATION: Dragonrider
WING: Firestorm

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Grey, cropped short but never shaved, generally a bit of a mess.
HEIGHT AND BUILD: Somewhat stocky but still well-built, 6’4”.
PLAY-BY: Hugh Grant
FULL APPEARANCE:
Unlike his wife, who he frankly considers to be the most beautiful woman in any room, Kinley has not quite aged gracefully. While he’s remained muscular and has maintained the muscle definition in most areas of his body (minus the completely genetic-based softness around his middle), he wears the weariness of years of fighting and dragon riding in deep wrinkles on his face and near-permanent dark circles beneath his eyes.

Kinley generally wears darker colours - mostly shades of navy, grey, and maroon, but never black, because he feels black makes him look much more pale than he actually is. (It’s an unfounded fear - he’s actually rather tan, just a bit too vain for his own good.) His hair looks as if it has never been introduced to any sort of styling product, and he’d prefer to keep it that way. He’s well-dressed and poised, and his hair is the only part of his appearance that will ever look anything but perfectly arranged.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Kinley seems to perfectly fill out the idea of an “alpha male”, which is exacerbated by the extra boost of confidence that he gets from being a bit taller than average and more muscular than most. Around most people, he somewhat leans into that idea, but more because the traits have been pushed on him because of his appearance for as long as he can remember. He’d never call himself an “alpha male” of any sorts - far from it, actually, especially considering he avoids exhibiting the most negative “alpha male” traits the best that he can. Around those he’s comfortable with, he’s kind, charming, and funny, if a bit clueless at times.

He’s generally good with children in particular, but he has the tendency to be a bit too lenient (especially with his own children) and can come across as the pushover parent. All in all, he wants what’s best for his children, but in trying to avoid parenting like his own parents, he’s become very slightly wishy-washy, though he will be stern when he has to be. He makes almost an exaggerated point to not get angry at anything to avoid coming across as too strict or stern, and tends to bottle any of his anger up and avoid experiencing it altogether.

He’s the type of person that’s always happy to hear a joke, even if it’s at his expense - but if someone jokes with him, they had better be prepared to get what they dish out thrown right back at them. Boundaries are not exactly his strong suit, and he has a tendency to cross lines when making jokes and not entirely realise that he’s upset someone. His lack of tact and inability to tell when he’s crossed a line has managed to get him into trouble more than once, especially with the people he’s close to, but he’s never been entirely sure how to remedy that - it’s not like he can just change the way his brain works. At this point, if he comes across rude with his jokes, it’s rather hard for him to even feel very bad about it, because it’s just a thing that happens.

HISTORY:
[TW: ABUSE, DEATH]
Kinley was an unexpected child, though he certainly wasn’t unwanted by any means. His parents hadn’t intended to have two children so incredibly close together, but they supposed that the extra bodies in the house would certainly do good for the needs of the family - specifically in terms of keeping everything in order. The youngest of the two boys, Kinley narrowly escaped the worst of the strictness and near cruelty of his parents. It instead fell mostly on his brother Varikin, who made a point to protect him from anything too horrible as best as he could. Of course, he could not be protected from everything, but even now, he is aware that he owes the fact that his childhood was even occasionally happy not to his parents, but to his brother.

This all changed, though, when he and Varikin both were searched - they were 15 and 16, respectively, and both more than happy to finally have a concrete reason to leave home. They were sent to High Reaches, where Kinley felt slightly out of place until he met Orville, who he clicked with immediately. They became fast friends and then roommates, swearing to each other that they would stay friends for the rest of their lives with the most sincerity 15-year-olds can possibly muster.

At 17, Kinley bid Orville goodbye, promising to write from Telgar, where he was headed for a hatching. There, he impressed to an incredibly kindhearted brown, Rucifeth. The letters between him and Orville slowed to a stop over the next year as they each settled into their lives. The period of settling didn’t last long, though, as when Kinley was nineteen, he was thrust into the Interval War and forced to fight against the people that he had been raised with. Of course, he did his best to take no issue with this, but it did take its toll on him - a toll which came to a head when he received news after six years of fighting that Orville had been killed. He then immediately returned to High Reaches to pay his respects.

He ended up falling in love with Orville’s ex-weyrmate, Nanette, there, and they soon became weyrmates, having three children before Kinley was called into the fight against Threadfall that came with the end of the war. In every battle that Kinley was called into, he seemed to survive while someone else close to Nanette would die, giving him a sort of survivor’s guilt complex - a complex that very nearly pushed him to retire, had he not felt so compelled to continue fighting. He would simply have to do everything he could to keep himself out of harm’s way the best he could so he could continue to be there for and wholeheartedly support Nanette, even if her blood relatives could no longer be.

He’s not particularly fond of the recent actions of High Reaches - he’s certain nothing good can ever come from stealing from another Weyr. He’d definitely like to avoid any more fighting, if at all possible, but if it comes to that, he’s more than prepared to protect High Reaches. Despite his disapproval of stealing eggs, he has a certain sort of pride in High Reaches and the way that things are run in his Weyr that keeps him from being too critical of what goes on there. He doesn’t consider himself anti-gold, so to speak, but he’s more than slightly wary about the idea of another gold in High Reaches. In fact, he’s rather wary of most golds, though he tries not to show it too much, because he’s still holding out hope that Aldoeth will prove him wrong and be anything but tyrannical.

BASICS

NAME: Rucifeth
BIRTHDATE Fall 2728
AGE: 42 as of 2770

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 46 ft
HEIGHT: 11.5 ft
WINGSPAN: 69 ft
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: #854A1E
FULL APPEARANCE:
Rucifeth is an average-sized, muscular brown with orangey-brown on the back of his wings, pale brown fading on the inside of his wings, and bubbles in that same pale brown up the legs and down his neck and covering his entire face. One might describe his gait as a bit clunky, as if he is not entirely sure of his own size to a certain extent.
PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Rucifeth is extremely kind-hearted, having more of a warm, loving disposition than anything. He tends to dote on Kinley a bit, but he feels that is to be expected, as he could sense that Kinley needed a stable presence in his life and was more than happy to be the one to attempt to provide it, even if just for a bit before he could make his own stability. In the style of a caring father, Rucifeth wants nothing more than to be a source of support and kindness when Kinley needs it the most.

In battle, the gentleness slips away, and he is all focus and intensity. Everything he does is out of necessity to protect, and fighting only exacerbates that feeling in him. He takes pride in being a protector, but he also takes pride in Kinley’s ability to do the same.

VOICE: Deep and smooth, but in a way that feels more velvety and gentle than anything else.
