BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire / Character
NAME: Toki
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Heterosexual (Unexplored, curious)

BIRTHDATE: Late Summer 2750
AGE: 18 as of Late Winter 2768
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Black, extremely long and in a high ponytail
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5’4”
PLAY-BY:
FULL APPEARANCE:
Toki is short by Pernese standards, but seems much larger than life just due to the way she carries herself and her personality. She’s compact with lean muscle and very little in the way of padding, and angular in ways that may seem harsh and intimidating. Her eyes often pinch slightly at the corners, making her seem perpetually unamused.

Toki’s black hair is long enough to seem as though it has never been cut, and is bound in a ponytail high on the back of her head. She enjoys long ribbons or strips of cloth as accents, and it’s one of the few feminine frivolities she allows herself. While she prefers to wear long tunics and leggings, she hates any form of sleeves or binding of her arms, and has been known to slightly mutilate and mend her own garments in order to get out of wearing them (poorly, she’s not good with a needle). If not disallowed by some sort of rule, she carries a long quarterstaff as both walking stick and weapon.

While Toki has no scars to speak of, it is not at all uncommon to find her with several bruises or a bandage.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Toki is a lot of personality in a small body, and could often be described as a force of nature. She’s accustomed to having to be somewhat loud and ‘large’ in order to be noticed, and it’s a hard habit to break. She isn’t ladylike, and can be brash and coarse, and doesn’t particularly care if people are upset by her not rolling over to take what is given.

Loyalty and duty are a muddy, gray, chaotic squiggle rather than a line for Toki. She is unfailingly loyal to people and ideals, and less so the letters of the law that govern them. That isn’t to say she’s a law or rulebreaker, in fact she’s inherently good and prefers to follow them; but should something arise that conflicts with her chosen ideal or one of her favored people she will look the other way. She is a strong believer in going for what will net the most good for the most people, even if she has to sacrifice something of herself or her reputation in order to attain it.

That said her loyalty is hard to earn and once it has been broken she has little use for those who have lost it. It’s difficult to regain her respect, and one might say she holds grudges.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Former-Harper Mother, Herdbeast Shepherd(?) Father, Five Older Brothers
SIGNIFICANT OTHER:
BIRTHPLACE: Cothold
HISTORY:
Toki was born in a small cothold in the greenfields, the youngest child of a former Harper and a Herdbeast handler. As the only daughter, she ended up incredibly close with her mother, who filled her head with stories of fantasy and how a nice young man might come sweep her off her feet some day. At the same time, however, her brothers treated her as just one of the boys (if smaller and more fragile); and her father believed in group punishment, as her brothers would never do something wrong if they dreamed it would get their precious little sister punished as well.

Despite learning how to rough and tumble with the boys, Toki naively believed that life was going to be rather like the fantasy stories her mother told her, where some brave man would come in and sweep her off her feet and fly her off into the sunset. When a boy from a neighboring cothold showed interest in her, she thought it was her fantasies come true. But it eventually came out that his family’s farm was failing, and he was hoping to marry into Toki’s stable, steady family. She immediately cut things off.

Somewhat disillusioned, Toki realized that fairy tales were just that, and that waiting for your dreams to come to you was childish. She convinced one of her brothers to teach her self-defense, and at fifteen-and-a-half, moved to Crom Hold. She still held on to the dream of flying off into the sunset, at least, and knew her odds of being searched were greater in a larger hold. In the meantime, she apprenticed to the Wherhandler at Crom, hoping that if a dragon wasn’t an option she could bond with a Wher, and would still learn valuable skills for dragon-caring in the meantime.

She kept up her practice with her staff and hoped to learn archery eventually. She had been at Crom Hold for just over two years when she was Searched by High Reaches Weyr.

IC Information
What type of candidate is your character: Dual

What color/s does your character want?: Toki just wants a dragon, and has no strong preference on color or gender. While she would like a gold, she isn’t going to be heartbroken if she doesn’t get it.
Does your character have any personality preferences or concerns?: Toki would prefer a playful dragon, or at least an active one.
Does your character have any other preferences or concerns?: No.

OOC Information
If your character is a dual candidate IC, do you have a strong preference on whether they Impress dragon or wher?: No.

What color(s) are you willing for your character to impress to?: Any
Do you have any personality preferences or concerns?: No
Do you have any other preferences or concerns?: No
Why do you think these choice/s would be a good fit?: Absolutely anything will progress Toki’s story and personality in interesting ways. A Gold would have Toki remembering her younger years as a naïve youth, and would be rather adorable to see her remember how to be a ‘girl’ and less crass. At the same time, any other type of dragon will still bring her dreams to fruition. A wher is her fallback plan and while it would be a further blow to an optimistic outlook on life, she would still throw herself into it wholeheartedly.

Do you have any preferences about the conditions of your character’s impression?: I have no preferences or restrictions.
Are you alright with your character getting hurt? What injury level is acceptable/what should be avoided?: Toki can get hurt in any shape or form, as long as she lives. Short of death, anything is on the board.

Is there anything you will ABSOLUTELY NOT accept?: I would prefer for her not to age out as the eventuality, but when it comes to colors, personalities, type of dragon, and whatever have you I have no preference. As a player I very much enjoy flying by the seat of my pants and adapting to new things or things that I had not thought of.
