"lyrics or quotes here"

BASICS

NAME: A'llyon; originally Apollyon, Apollo for short
GENDER: Masculine
PRONOUNS: Masculine (he/him/his)
ORIENTATION: Bisexual

BIRTHDATE: Late Autumn 2748
AGE: 28 as of 2776
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wingrider
WING: Stormlight

APPEARANCE
EYES: Dark Amber
HAIR: Dark Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6' 5"
PLAY-BY: Picrew
FULL APPEARANCE:
Standing at 6' 5" tall and all sinewy muscle, A'llyon can be intimidating and he knows it. Lightly tanned, his skin has no freckles to mar his complexion. Recently cutting it shorter for simplicity in his new life as a dragonrider, his hair brushes his shoulder blades in dark brown waves, flaming into reddish brown in some light. Cold and calculating, his eyes are a dark brownish amber in color. Since Impressing and graduating, A'llyon has gotten a little more aware of his appearance, though he still doesn't care too much about how other view him in regards to his clothes. Unless he has to look nice, he usually wears a decent enough shirt and breeches, as well as his usual faded boots.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Most of A'llyon's negative traits are obvious to a perceptive eye. Outwardly, Apollo seems not to care of others' feelings, being aloof and distrusting; a lone wolf who seems inclined to fight everything and everyone that draws breath. Misguided anger constantly simmering under a visibly spiteful surface, he lays into others to keep them from getting too close, inadvertently hurting those who don't deserve it. A'llyon is also fiercely independent, loathe to ask others for help, no matter how desperately he needs it. Being quite prideful, he often takes minor insults to great extremes; making a mountain out of a tunnelsnake burrow.

Behind such a frightful attitude is quite a surprise: A'llyon isn't completely socially unacceptable. Underneath his cold exterior is a different person entirely, someone who can be shockingly gentle and kind, though he's still quite stoic about showing as much. Desperation sometimes clouds his judgement, as he knows others aren't inclined to stay close to him, which sees him go to great lengths to make them stay. To friends, A'llyon is protective and loyal, but somewhat possessive, doing his best to make them happy to be close to him. But to a lover, he's completely devoted to them, extremely protective and willing to sacrifice everything to bring them safety and happiness, giving all he has to give.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father - Journeyman Tanner - living
Mother - Journeyman Tailor - deceased (presumed) - open tie!
Brother (younger) - Apprentice Tailor - living - open tie!
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Outskirts of Nabol Hold
HISTORY: TW: death/loss
Apollyon was born in times of war to Journeyman Crafters. Seeing as his father was quite a stiff and cold man and his mother a bubble of brightness and joy, they had a strange love, but one that made for a strong union. A Turn after his birth, his parents had a second son, making Apollo a big brother; a position he took proudly. In spite of Golre's chaotic reign, life was happy for them all. Both boys wanted for nothing, as both parents kept practicing while raising two sons.

But Apollyon's mother mysteriously disappeared as High Reaches Weyr started kidnapping Candidates, changing everything. Both Apollo and his father are convinced that she didn't survive Golre, though his younger brother has put forth no comment or opinion. As his father battled grief, both boys found themselves to've lost both parents in one fell swoop. Apollo kept himself and his brother fed and presentable, helped by those sympathetic and understanding such a great loss, much to Apollo's inward dismay. It was difficult for him to lose his mother and essentially lose his father at such a young age, taking charge of his own and brother's care giving him no time to mourn his mother himself.

Apollyon's father eventually emerged from his grief shortly after Golre's fall, though he was somehow more aloof than ever before, losing his beloved being a blow from which he couldn't recover. While his brother was overjoyed to welcome his father again, Apollo was wary. Both were soon old enough to begin Apprenticeship in a Craft; his brother took after his mother as a Tailor, while Apollo did not take to a Craft at all. While his brother was occupied in his Apprenticeship, his father returned to his own Craft, which saw Apollo staying to assist as much as he could.

After losing his mother, Apollyon learned to distrust dragonriders, though curiosity was a damn hard thing to kill, a thought that one day yielded an insane inclination to be exactly what he once hated: a dragonrider. So at a Searchpair's arrival in Nabol, though he almost refused in spite (he might've if his brother hadn't encouraged him to consider such a chance), he accepted what was being offered: a chance to see if these rumors of draconic might and majesty were true. Why not give life in High Reaches Weyr a shot before resigning himself to be aimless all his life?

UPDATES
  • Early Summer 2772: Apollyon Stands for Morriseth and Aldoeith's clutch and Impresses blue Ysstoth! Apollyon officially elides his name to A'llyon. [Hatching]
  • Early Spring 2774: In Threadfall, A'llyon gets a chunk of smoldering Thread on his face and in his right eye. It will take a while for his vision in that eye to return to normal, but no lasting harm is done. (Moderate)

Ysstoth

Image

Disgraceful. Absolutely disgraceful. We're going to have to work on you. A lot.


BASICS

NAME: Ysstoth (Yiss-toh-th)
BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2772
AGE: 4 as of 2776

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 38 ft.
HEIGHT: 9.5 ft.
WINGSPAN: 58 ft.
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #22335f
FULL APPEARANCE:
Ysstoth is a blue whose expressions seem to range from "mildly peeved" to "suppressed fury." No matter the situation, his face just seems to fixed in a perpetual scowl. Yssoth is on the larger end of blues and is strong and muscular, with wide wings, plenty of staying power in the air and little difficulty carrying heavy loads. His hide is a dark blue, with lighter markings tracing abstract, geometric designs along all four of his legs. All in all, he looks like an intimidating blue not to be taken lightly.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
A serious, no-nonsense dragon to a fault, Ysstoth seems to be a dragon who has never been cheery in his life. In truth, he is not terribly expressive. He is absolutely terrible at relaxing, and some days it seems like the concept is absolutely alien to him. There is always more work, and always more things to do. He is a very clean dragon, going so far as to try to pick stones out of the dirt when he walks so they do not get between his toes, or so his rider would not trip on them if walking the same path. He is quietly very kind, and he takes care of his own. His own family is small, and he takes good care of them.

To his rider, Ysstoth is very caring. He also may go overboard, trying to pick out their clothes (he has no sense of human clothing, it will be a disaster), offering to try their food so it isn't poisoned, things like that. He means very well, he does. He just has no sense of personal space. Ysstoth, if he can learn to relax, would be a fine teacher. Drilling will be a breeze to him, it's something he can work on and he can always strive for improvement. He cares very deeply for his rider and his family.

VOICE: Ysstoth is as stern as he looks, his voice deep and serious. It is hard to tell when he is happy.

Why Me?: Whether or not Apollo wants a dragon to take care of him and make him grow by flinging him off balance, well, Ysstoth doesn't care. He's made his choice and he's sticking to it.

Volhikar

Image


BASICS

NAME: Volhikar; Voll for short
BIRTHDATE: Late Spring 2767
AGE: 9 as of 2776

APPEARANCE
SPECIES: Equine
FULL APPEARANCE:
Volhikar is a gorgeous specimen of runner. Built for speed and stamina both, he's long-legged and strong. Voll's eyes are brown, as standard for runners, while his mane and tail are black. Though his coat is a rich blood bay, he has black stockings on all four legs and a white spot on his forehead.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Volhikar is a jerk, much like his owner. Hardheaded and willful, he'll refuse to do things he doesn't like, quite often a hazard to others who try to master him. In addition, he likes to make things difficult. For example, he'll roll in fresh mud shortly after being groomed, dump his water everywhere, drag and throw his tack, and other such things. But Volhikar has some redeeming qualities. Though rare, he can be noble and brave, willing to face down a wher if his master asks him. Being very loyal, those who aren't Apollo usually get flat glares from Voll upon approaching him.
