L'ark of green Anuketh

L ' A R K

There's a thin line 'tween the dark side,
And the light side, baby tonight
It's a struggle, gotta rumble, tryin'a find it


BASICS
RETIRE INFO: Retire
NAME: L'ark, Luarken
GENDER: nonbinary, generally presents as male
PRONOUNS: xe/xym/xyr
ORIENTATION: panromantic homosexual

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2742
AGE: twenty-six as of Late Fall 2768
LOCATION: High Reaches
OCCUPATION: Rider, apprentice Weaver
WING: Firestorm

APPEARANCE
EYES: blue-green
HAIR: brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: six foot two, slender and awkward
PLAY-BY: Chris Colfer
FULL APPEARANCE:The past few Turns have held a late growth spurt for L'ark. Xe has grown nearly eight inches since Impressing Anuketh. Since xe is still growing into xyr lanky frame, xe is physically awkward, more likely to trip over xyr large feet than glide smoothly through a room. Xyr limbs are long, xyr fingers dexterous. And while they have plenty of strength to them, they are not bulky.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: L'ark is an adorable dork. Xe would very much like to glide through life, smooth and suave, but life has a different plan for xym. Xe spends a lot of time either embarrassed, apologizing, or some combination of both. It gets to the point where xe over-exaggerates certain gestures in the hope of not messing up.

Xe's about as sweet as can be, and will give until xe has nothing left for the people xe claims as xyrs, but xe prefers to hide that sweetness behind a mask of sarcasm and judgemental snobbery. Xe has learned how to apologize in such a way that it makes xyr audience feel as thought they are to blame. As xe puts it, xyr body already betrays xym on a daily basis. Why should the rest of the world know xym well enough to have the same privilege?

HISTORY
FAMILY: Single father, step-mother, step-brother and his family
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: none
BIRTHPLACE: Nerat Hold
HISTORY:

TW: character death

Xyr home life was not particularly exciting. Xe was the first born of a pair of holders, and was intended to be only the first of several. But xyr mother never truly recovered from her pregnancy, and was one of the victims of a winter virus. Xe was four at the time, and xyr father would not remarry until xe was seventeen.

Luarken was apprenticed to the Hold's main weavers when xe was just eight. Xe tried many crafts under their tutelage, and was eventually tapped by the Master of Knitting. There was soon nothing xe could not do, or figure out, or invent, with a few smooth sticks and some spun wool. Xe immersed xymself in knitting to the point that xe neglected other, basic, weaving skills. In fact, it was to the point that xe was not expected to walk the tables until xe was twenty Turns old!

Well, that expectation fizzled to nothing when a rider from Ista Searched the young weaver for a clutch at nineteen. Luarken was told that xe would be a fool to let such an opportunity pass xym by, and bundled onto a dragon amid protests. Xe did not Impress at the current clutch.

Xe did not Impress at the next clutch, either.

In fact, xe requested to be transferred to Benden Weyr shortly before xyr twenty-first birthday, in the hopes of learning other forms of weavercraft while xe waited for this mysterious dragon that might potentially choose xym. Xe was struggling with the art of bobbin weaving when Vilketh Rose, and laid ten eggs.

When Anuketh hatched, Luarken was not prepared for it. Xe had watched many dragons find their riders on the Sands, and hadn't gotten a particularly strong reaction from any of the eggs in the clutch. But xe was unexpectedly worried as the green inside of the Grace Begets Speed egg struggled to leave her shell. But when she finally emerged, and sprawled across the sand in front of the candidates, Luarken irrevocably became L'ark.

Ah, L'ark! I might need a little bit of help, here. The floor is unsteady.

But L'ark's joy of Impression was overridden by one of the last eggs to hatch. It contained Benden's next gold, and she chose one of the daughters of Laretta. Weyrling training was doomed.

L'ark transferred to High Reaches in the Spring of 2765 to escape a particularly obnoxious brown rider who seemed to think that because her brown had caught Anuketh during her first Flight, she should have exclusive access to L'ark's bed. Xe was also very tired of defending xyr dragon's color from the metallic assholes that ran the weyr. After the attempted execution of a Fortian white rider, xe wanted to belong to a weyr that valued Anuketh for who she was.

After all, the only gold dragons were weyrlings, and they were notably not part of the official ruling Council. There were two greens on the Council, and a white rider, too. L'ark is eager to experience this new dynamic in the hopes that xe will finally fit in somewhere.

UPDATES
  • Summer 2765 - Xe is beauty, xe is grace, xe will fall flat on xyr face. It turns out that several of xyr clutchmates have made it to High Reaches, and they have a small gathering in the weyrbowl. L'ark displays xyr typical grace when an attempt to dismount leaves xyr face down in the dirt.
  • Fall 2765 - L'ark was horrified to hear people talking about needing more golds around. Xyr objections were upheld by xyr classmates.
  • Early Spring 2766 - A terrible Fall! Anuketh suffers a bad score on her left side. It causes her to crash land, which prompts a skull fracture. She will be out of commission for the rest of the season, at least. L'ark broke xyr left arm in the crash. Xe will be out of commission for the rest of the season.
  • Late Spring 2766 - Coup!

BASICS
NAME: Anuketh
BIRTHDATE Fall 2762 [Deities]
AGE: five Turns as of Fall 2767

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: thirty-two feet
HEIGHT: six feet six inches
WINGSPAN: forty feet
COLOR: green
HEX CODE: #34925E
FULL APPEARANCE:
Anuketh is a very small green. On any other dragon, her most prominent feature would be her wings, which are a little large for her frame. But Anuketh has another prominent feature that outshines her wings - her tail. If her tail was proportionate to the rest of her, Anuketh would measure only twenty-six feet long. But her tail adds a good six feet beyond what normal proportions would dictate.

The majority of her body alternates between the same two shades of green. One is more of a bluish green, and the other is a lighter, spring green. Her abnormally long tail shades into a third color, this one with more yellow than the rest.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Anuketh loves the water. She is a coastal dragon, despite living in a mountain. Her moods ebb and flow as easily as the tide, and nearly as strong. Shiny things captivate her, and she can get distracted from the intensity of a Flight by something as simple as the sparkle of the sun on the waves. She is easily put back on task, though.

She is not much of a nurturer, though she is quite protective of those individuals she decides are 'hers'. Her clutchmates, other greens, and anyone who talks to L'ark are all fair game to be considered hers. Her first priority, though, is and always will be her rider.

VOICE: Anuketh has a deep, feminine voice, deeper than her size would suggest. She uses her words like a weapon, aiming to strike with as much precision as possible. This can make her either an effective leader, or an antagonizer.

HATCHING

Clutch: Wild Animals theme, Egyptian deities names
Egg Name: Grace Begets Speed
Dam: Gold Vilketh
Sire: Brown Laenth
Hatching Number: six of ten
Impression Number: six of ten
Details: Anuketh hatched tail first, and had a little bit of trouble finding her way out of her shell. Once out, she proceeded to trip over her already abnormally long tail, and sprawled in front of the candidates.
