down on us
We can share everyday in every way we hold the promise of tomorrow"


BASICS

NAME: Datte (rhymes with batty)
GENDER: cis Male
PRONOUNS: He/him/his
ORIENTATION: Asexual, unsure on orientation

BIRTHDATE: Early Winter 2754
AGE: 16 as of Early Summer 2771
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Weyrling
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'4", lean and wiry
PLAY-BY: Asbel Lhant [Tales of Graces]
FULL APPEARANCE:
The first thing people notice about Datte is that he's short, definitely too short for his age. He hasn't hit a good growth spurt yet, and he's hoping that he'll actually be tall. It's a touchy subject. That said, he's rather lean and wiry. A sprinter's form, not so much a distance runner, if one could make the comparison. He's also rather hardy and sturdy, and he rarely gets ill. When he does, it usually is something major and knocks him around for a while. His hair, a very dark brown, is kept short. It always looks messy, even when he tries to comb it. He wears clothing in dark reds or grays, fitted to him so he can move and still look presentable.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Datte is a young man who, on the surface, is ready to fight all the time. He is quick to jump to the wrong conclusions, and he is incredibly sensitive about his height. He's a young man with something to prove, especially to Gaius. He feels like he owes the man for adopting and mentoring him, and he stubbornly refuses the idea that he does not owe Gaius, or that he has paid his debt. He may never actually think he's repaid the man. Noisy, crowded places make him anxious, and anxiety leads to lashing out more often than not.

When in private and quiet situations, Datte is much easier to get along with. He likes peace and quiet, eager to take frequent trips across Pern to find places he can get away from the bustle of the Weyr. He loves his home, yes, but he also needs time to himself. He does enjoy knitting, it's something he finds calming to do in his dwindling free time. He has been known to donate whatever he's made to the creche.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Gaius
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: (optional)
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches Weyr
HISTORY:
Datte was born as unremarkable as possible. No fanfare, no celebration, he simply was. Quickly sent to the creche, Datte was always a short child. He took it personally, always. Teasing lead to shouting which lead to fights. He never could get a handle on himself. Everything was a slight against him.

It didn't really improve as he got older, getting in trouble for picking fights with... nearly everyone. It ended poorly most of the time, especially if it was a rider, or a handler. Weyrbrats didn't hold power, and Datte held less power for his need to fight everyone who may or may not have insulted him. It didn't matter who to him.

Of course, it turned on him, frequently. Datte was labeled a problem, and being so short compared to so many others, he frequently ended up in the infirmary from biting off far more than he could chew (which was pretty much all the time). Black eyes, bruises, all of those and more seemed to plague him, and he was too stubborn and bitter to really realize that he was the problem, that he didn't need to take everything as an insult. It was a turbulent time, with the Weyr held under Golre's tyranny, to the fall of the Reaches, and the slow rebuilding. It was too chaotic for him. Everything was loud, everything was changing, and everything was overwhelming. It only lead to more fighting.

Finally it all came to a head, with Datte picking a fight with the wrong person, and ending in the infirmary with a broken arm at 15. That was when an older man - dragonless, as Datte found out - came to him, sitting down with him and talking. It was just the two of them, and in the calmness, Datte found himself actually talking, not picking fights, just talking about him, the real him, the confused, overwhelmed young man who didn't actually know what he was doing with his life. Or what he should be doing.

Gaius was a guiding comfort, and incredibly patient. He adopted Datte soon after he was released from the infirmary, and set him on the path to candidacy. It turned out to be a good thing, for just before he turned 16, he stood for the Herald of the Rites clutch. Waiting was painful, and the sound and noise only made him more anxious.

That was when he found Tarith.

Or, rather, Tarith found him.

A perfect, calm white who was there to even out and temper Datte's anger (somewhat). Datte loved him, loved him the moment their eyes met. This was his life now, to be a rider, to do everything he could to pay Gaius back.

Tarith
Image


BASICS

NAME: Tarith
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2770
AGE: 9.5 months as of Early Summer 2771

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 28ft
HEIGHT: 7ft
WINGSPAN: 42ft
COLOR: White
HEX CODE: #a6a6b1
FULL APPEARANCE:
A lean white of average size, with a narrow face and a faint hint of a metallic shine, Tarith is unlikely to be mistaken for any other dragon that happens to share his color. His markings are striking and unique. Markings resembling crescent moons appear across his hide. Markings on his tail resemble the notes to a Harper's song and if an enterprising harper tries to read them as such, they can produce the beginnings of a jaunty yet vaguely ominous tune.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Tarith feels less like a dragon and more like an otherwordly observer. He has a calm, yet very mysterious air around him, and he finds the world quite an interesting place. He and Aldoeith are as close as one could get, the two of them taking it upon themselves to shoulder some great burden, to guide Pern through some unknown rites. Tarith is more relaxed than his sister, and finds nothing wrong with occasionally shirking his duties to go to a hold to simply watch those around him. He is quite talented at sensing potential riders. He has a fondness for music.

To his rider, Tarith may be a mysterious companion, but he is a comforting one. He keeps many things to himself, specifically only sharing with Aldoeith when things are right. Such secrecy will do him no favors. He has a fondness for Scryth. Tarith is a mysterious sort, and he seems to see the world beyond what it shows, making him quite a candidate for diplomacy when he is older. He is quick-witted and clever, and he fears nothing. He is less strict than Aldoeith when it comes to tradition.

Voice: Tarith's voice is surprisingly soft, and subdued. He can warble along with a tune pretty well.
