Sundew of Green Bertruth

Sundew
"It's the best part of my day, a little tiny bit of vengeance every morning."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire
NAME: Sundew
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/Her/Hers
ORIENTATION: Biromantic Bisexual, female leaning

BIRTHDATE: Summer 2750
AGE: 20 as of 2770
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Weyrling
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Dark Green
HAIR: Dark Brown, mid-back length.
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 6", broad shouldered and muscular.
FULL APPEARANCE:
Sundew is an intimidating young woman. She's all glares and scowls with muscle to back up her attitude. She has dark green eyes and long, dark brown hair. If it was shorter it would curl more, but the length of it keeps it fairly straight. For the most part she doesn't do anything with her hair besides keeping it organized. It's usually down, and reaches the middle of her back. If she's working or if its too warm, she'll begrudgingly tie it up.
PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Sundew is hotheaded and quick to anger. She has a very 'shoot first ask questions later' attitude despite the fact that PERN doesn't have any guns, and there are very few things that get more thought. She's learned to keep her hands to herself, but hasn't quite got a handle on her foul mouth, and if things come to blows she's all for a good brawl.

Sundew values her dignity and dislikes embarrassing herself in front of others, namely those whom she respects. This likely comes from the perceived need for perfection she feels due to her parents high expectations. She pushes herself to be the best she can be subconsciously, even though she recognizes that, being away from her parents, she doesn't need to impress anyone. Although she wouldn't like to admit it, underneath the prickly exterior she has the capability to be quite compassionate. This is often shown only to those close to her because part of her thinks that her softer side makes her look weak.

She's also quiet tactical and intelligent, with a soft spot for plants. She has an excellent memory, and, though she never had intentions of being a healer, she has some knowledge of helpful (and harmful) herbs. It wouldn't be strange for her to ask questions while in the infirmary.
HISTORY
FAMILY:
Belladona (Mother)
Hemlock (Father)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Willow
BIRTHPLACE: A minor hold near Fort Weyr
HISTORY: TW: Homophobia
Sundew had a fairly unremarkable childhood. The only thing of note was the high expectations her parents put on her. She was expected to marry into an important family, something she found out very quickly she had no interest in. It was the subject of many arguments between them, and Sundew found herself longing for an escape.

She found that in Willow, who was a pleasant change of pace from her parents. There were no screaming matches, no arguments, just quiet conversations about nothing in particular. She realized, after spending time with Willow, that this is what she wanted from a relationship. She wanted Willow by her side, and the feeling was mutual. Their relationship, however, was a secret. Sundew knew her parents wouldn't approve of it. Hell they may even be disgusted by it. She feared they would force her to stop seeing Willow if she told them, and she wasn't about to take her chances.

Things came to a head when she was searched with Willow at 15. Suddenly she had a hundred more responsibilities in her parents eyes. Impress gold, or something high ranking, make a name for herself. She was bitter, truthfully. But Willow proposed the idea of Semaca. Something so far away from her parents sounded like sweet relief. Any weyr would have done, but being an entire ocean away was comforting. She was more than happy to leave her parents in the dust. Willow, bless her heart, presented Sundew with a firelizard egg, to celebrate her freedom from her parents' expectations. It hatched into a mean little flit which Sundew called Vengeance.

Three turns came and went, and despite being with Willow, Sundew found herself growing restless. She wasn't happy with her lack of impression at Semaca. Willow suggested a temporary transfer, to test her luck elsewhere. It hurt to leave, but she wished Willow the best. Besides, she had Vengeance there to be a messenger between them. High Reaches was the polar opposite of Semaca. But she found her luck there after two turns of waiting, through stolen clutches and political upheaval.

Bertruth was a strange one. A grouchy green who was born as old as some of the senior dragons at the weyr. They found common ground, but still butted heads a bit. Sundew wasn't used to someone's desire to be alone all the time. Only time would tell if they could compromise to satisfy both of their desires. At least they had an interest in plants in common. It seemed like a good enough place to start. The only problem now was that she was stuck at High Reaches for the foreseeable future.

Vengeance
Image


BASICS
NAME: Vengeance
BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2765
AGE: 5 as of Early Summer 2770

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Green
FULL APPEARANCE:
Vengeance is a soft, spring green all over, save for her markings. Her markings are emerald green in colors. She has two circular markings on her wings and one on her flank, as well as what looks like stockings on her front paws. The furthest half of her tail and the tips of her wing sails are also emerald in color.

She's pretty standard size for her color, with a narrow face and wings made for speed. She's a little tall, which comes from her long legs. If she weren't so awful, she might be described as a graceful flit.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Vengeance likes exactly two people in this world, and everyone else can get forsked for all she cares. She's a horrible little thing, who bites like she's trying to take fingers or toes with her. Her one redeeming quality is that she listens, if only to Sundew or Willow, and will behave herself if she's told to. She also makes quite the good messenger, even if getting the message from her is a little frightening for most.

BERTRUTH
Image

BASICS

NAME: Bertruth
BIRTHDATE Late Fall 2770
AGE: 0 as of Late Fall 2770

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: No
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 31ft
HEIGHT: 7.75ft
WINGSPAN: 45ft
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #2c4436
FULL APPEARANCE:
On the larger end for a green, Bertruth is stocky and decidedly more sturdy than graceful. Her tail is notably thick, even within the context of the rest of her build. Her face gives the impression of perpetual displeasure and her rider should expect repeated questions about what exactly has her so grumpy. Bertruth's coloring is quite lovely. Her hide is a subtle gradient of different shades of green, brightened by thin lines on the ends of her wings, thicker streaks on her headknobs and a single circle in the middle of her forehead, almost like a third eye.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Bertruth seems like she was born old and a little bitter. She greatly prefers to be left to do her own thing, and can be seen as difficult. She finds herself better suited to a healer's wing, having quite a talent for sniffing out useful herbs or hidden caches. How she truly manages such a thing while flying, no one really knows. She comes off as always judging, and always looking at the world around her in the hopes that they will just leave her alone so she can work and do something good. However, she does let her real self be known, rarely. And that self is one who is kind, and caring.

To her rider, Bertruth is a tough nut to crack. Even they will have to work to get used to her as she will them, and eventually they will see each other for who they truly are. She has no ambitions to lead wings or oversee Pern. She would be very content just being allowed to go out with Search, or to just poke around various parts of Pern to find plants and useful fungi to help heal or poison people - depending on her mood.

Voice: Bertruth's voice is gravely, like an old crone.
