BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Adopt both please :)
NAME: Xinia
GENDER: female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Uh... what?

BIRTHDATE: Late Spring, Turn 2750
AGE: 21 as of Late Spring Turn 2771
LOCATION: Now at Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: weyrling
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: blue
HAIR: kinda wavy strawberry blonde
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5’6 tall, of sturdy & healthy build
FULL APPEARANCE:

Xinia‘s strawberry blonde hair is very long and kinda wavy; the length actually reaches her hips, it’s so long. She has a very cute fringe (and random wisps of hair) that will occasionally get in her eyes, and she often kept her rather impressive hair bound back in either a braid or some kind of ‘tail hairstyle.
Wide blue eyes, framed with medium-sized eyelashes, sat on either side of her little pert nose, and her skin, fair enough to probably burn if she so much as stepped out for a candlemark into the sunshine of an hotter climate than her native High Reaches, bore a well-sprinkled dusting of freckles.
Her lips are quite average, if a bit on the thin side, with very much ordinary teeth.

She has a expressive face; its structure gave off a very delicate look which rather contradicted the appearance of her well-built muscled body. Her grin could light up the entire room whenever it made its appearance, and in its absence sometimes you could practically see a storm cloud hanging over her head (or feel her eyes burning holes into you) when she’s really mad at something or someone. A raise of an eyebrow could convey sarcasm, a twinkle in her eye could hint at mischief, and so on.

Xinia’s capable hands were strong, with clever nimble fingers and surprisingly neat fingernails. There was a small scar on the pad of her right thumb, its length reaching diagonally from almost at the top corner of her thumbnail to near the first joint. (Xinia had been fortunate - at the time she’d accidentally pressed her thumb on the sharp edge of her knife whilst cleaning it, and had miraculously managed to narrowly escape the need for stitches, although the cut was certainly just deep enough to leave behind its evidence of that small error.)

On one forearm she had several long bite and claw scars from an aggressively territorial wherry; the angrily jagged lines and beak marks marring her otherwise healthy skin, though the extent of the injury was thankfully contained to her arm, between the limits of her elbow and hand.

Xinia frequently has on her favourite fur-lined wherhide jacket nearly all the time; it was often thrown on over the top of whatever she happened to be wearing for the day. Apart from that, she almost invariably wore what would be considered appropriate HR clothing in the form of long-sleeved tunics, (seems that weather hot enough to involve short sleeves at HR are pretty rare and far between), beautiful if scruffy wherhide boots on her feather-light feet, and of course, slightly worn-down warm pants. A sturdy belt sat clinched at her waist, bearing her sheathed knife and all the usual everyday odds and ends.

Xinia will sometimes slip into skirts or dresses if the occasion calls for it, though she would often insist on either wearing her beloved jacket or something with pockets (or at the very least her belt) over the top of her feminine outfit.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:

If someone had to quickly describe Xinia’s personality in one sentence, that sentence would probably read something like “A outgoing problem child with a mischievous streak, and a tunnelsnake phobia. Has a grudge against wherries, of all things...” and that someone would’ve hit the nail on the head.

(And yeah, she does have a problem. Xinia silently freezes on the spot in fear when it’s tunnelsnakes, but HATES wherries to the point of yelling and running at any that gets too close to scare it away. Whenever someone wonders aloud in her hearing why she hates them, she will brandish her scarred arm as proof)

Otherwise, Xinia is friendly and indeed quite outgoing with most people, though she is also pretty average in terms of not being that selfless, nor really that selfish. Vanity shows itself by the way she takes pride in her long well-cared for hair, and her general appearance. She loves the great outdoors and her gold flit, and enjoyed cold weather because it meant snow, hot klah and lots of mischievous fun!

(The trade off though is that her scars would frequently ache due to the chill, and that her mischievous streak could land her in trouble every now and then)

She would sometimes like to play harmless pranks on her friends and her fellow classmates (sometimes even certain authority figures too - no one’s safe!), and she probably wouldn’t mind too much if she herself got pranked as long as it was harmless. (Like that classic bucket dumps water on your head prank - she’d be annoyed for a while after she innocently falls into that trap, but then she would quickly see the humour of the situation, and then turn the tables on the prankster when it was least expected.) Sometimes she was caught, sometimes not, sometimes she caught them, but it was always in good fun or being done just to see what the reaction might be. If the pranks she received weren’t harmless or was an emotional/manipulative prank of the sort that shouldn’t be used, well, Faranth help those who ended up in her bad books!

Xinia is capable of focusing on what she does, sometimes to the exclusion of all else, but more often she could be found roaming the outdoors, now and then merrily flashing a mischievous grin at you as she starts a snowball fight; and even if she was quietly absorbed in a few Records, oblivious to the rest of the world in a quiet corner somewhere, she usually wouldn’t sit still. Her fingers would tap, her leg would jiggle, and if not those parts, then some other body part would still be in motion. Xinia CAN be completely still when it’s called for, though she‘s normally driven by the instinct to move. Even if it’s just occasionally wriggling her toes.

Xinia, like many children during childhood, dreamt of becoming a dragonrider one day, although such a wish was obviously pretty dependent on whether the Searchdragons would find her suitable, and in turn was only possible if she ever came across them, and then to find herself planted in the Weyr as one of the Candidates. (Though that would be an excellent experience, in her private opinion.)

During Candidacy, Xinia would be driven by that common childhood dream, and, mischievous streak aside, her secret desire to fit in as well as find her place in Pernese society, and to at least attempt to help make her part of the world a happier place, if not better than it was before.

HISTORY
FAMILY: (open to play)
mother, father, older sibling (23 as of Turn 2769), 4 foster siblings (ages 25, 20, 16, and 14, respectively, as of Turn 2769)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: n/a (yet)
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches
HISTORY:

Trigger warning: brief mention of bleeding injuries/scars

As the second child born to her Holder parents, Xinia grew up around multiple ‘siblings’ in a small remote Hold in High Reaches. Four of the sisters and brothers she shared her life with were fostered by her family, though as a child Xinia still adored them all; treating them as if they were in fact blood-related. She loved to play with them, were very close with her firstborn sister, and she were often thick as thieves with the kids closest to her in age.

During the terrible reign of Golre, of which the entire Hold was relatively unaware of due to its remoteness, Xinia and her siblings had a very normal childhood despite this. At the age of 13, Xinia discovered a well-hardened (and apparently abandoned) firelizard nest, due to hatch any day, and brought it home with her. Not long after, the eggs started to crack, and she had excitedly yelled for as many of her friends and family as she could get to attend (and to hopefully gain their own firelizard pets). In next to no time, Xinia had found herself feeding and gently cradling a little hungry pale-gold flit hatchling, whom she had promptly named Moonshine, because of the newborn flit’s darker gold crescent moon markings.

Then, a few days later, Xinia had a.. incident, involving a wherry.


She’d unfortunately walked past a little too close to a wherry’s nest that day, which of course led to a very outraged territorial creature of a wherry deigning to attack, flying straight at her. Xinia had thrown up an arm in self-defence just in time, and was ‘rewarded’ with several bites and scratches on her forearm deep enough to scar, received in a matter of seconds. With a pained yell of fury, Xinia had had the courage to punch it with her other hand, stunning the aggressive bird long enough for its mindless attack to cease, and giving her time to make her escape home with her heavily bleeding injuries. And sent straight to a Healer.

Fortunately Xinia still had the use of her arm, as scarred as it was, but ever since that day she completely hated the avian creatures with a vehement passion.

Now, a sevenday before she reached eighteen Turns, Xinia left home to travel to a distant Gathering with some of her older siblings as an early birthday treat. Once they got there, she was officially 18, and her group were having fun doing what one does at a Gathering, when they’d come across a dragonrider and their dragon. An unusual enough sight to Xinia, given that her home Hold were rarely visited by dragonriders due to its small size and remote location, and she’d never really had the opportunity to see them, much less actually meet a rider and dragon up close. In any case, the dragon had made the meeting even more memorable by its proclamation to an awestruck Xinia that she, yes, she, had Candidacy potential. What an extremely wonderful surprise!

Of course, she’d all but tripped over her own feet to accept this unexpected birthday ‘gift’, and soon, a wide-eyed Xinia and Moonshine had found themselves at High Reaches Weyr, where they stayed, and for a Turn, experienced what life as a Candidate in a weyr was like. Xinia discovered she actually enjoyed her new life very much, once the novelty of being among dragons for the first time in her life had worn off; and by the time she was nineteen, had resolved that she would somehow stay on at the weyr if it was at all possible, even if Xinia were to ‘age out’ and miss out on a dragon, though she hoped she would find her partner (or rather, that her partner found her, given the nature of Hatchings) before that happened.

MOONSHINE
Image


BASICS

NAME: Moonshine
BIRTHDATE Spring Turn 2763
AGE: 06 as of Turn 2769

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: almost 2 and a half feet in length from nose to tail
HEIGHT: nearly 3 feet tall, the same height as a blue-and-gold macaw
WINGSPAN: just over 3 and a half feet in wingspan
COLOR: gold
HEX CODE: ?
FULL APPEARANCE:
A pale sandy-coloured gold flit with darker true gold moon-crescent shaped markings all over her body, and a golden skull-like mask on her face. She is roughly the same size as an average blue-gold macaw, with wings almost as large as her body, and a pair of curiously inquisitive eyes. Her flit smile seems to be practically permanent, the way it gently curved upwards at the corners even when she’s relaxed. Her claws are sharp, as are her little white teeth, and she has a habit of carrying herself in a very regal-like manner; just as clearly a marker of her gold queen status as the subtle yet obvious metallic shine of her hide.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Moonshine can get along well with most, people and creatures alike, although she does have a very fierce protective streak/maternal instinct to protect ( especially her mistress and those human or creature friends the flit and her person liked). Moonshine is also a flit who believes herself to be almost always hungry, so she can be found hanging out near the kitchens, regally hoping for a sneaky snack, about as often as she can be seen loyally staying by her Xinia’s side.
She too liked outdoorsy activities, although sometimes she much preferred remaining near the warmth of a fire, or nestled deep inside Xinia’s winter clothing (despite her mistress’ good natured complaints), than voluntarily freezing out in the open air when it’s the snowy season. She is also somewhat more intelligent than the average flit, though she is by no means anywhere as clever as a dragon!

Yhargulth
Image


BASICS

NAME: Yhargulth
BIRTHDATE Spring Turn 2770
AGE: Newborn as of 2770


APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 35ft
HEIGHT: 8.75ft
WINGSPAN: 52.5ft
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #090a43
FULL APPEARANCE:

An average sized, incredibly lean blue. Yhargulth is built for speed and efficiency. He is all sharp angles and narrow wings, quick and brutal. He is a deep blue all over, with a pale blue face. There are bold blue streaks going down his body from his neck, like trailing ribbons or long feathers. His wings have pale blue, feathery wing markings all over, giving him a weird, almost huntbird quality to him. There are pale blue, twin markings up his forelegs, like twisted blades.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:

Yhargulth seems like he's been around a lot. And for a long time. Every job is efficient and done well, with no less than 100% every time. It is not out of some sort of perfectionism, but instead Yhargulth believes that if he does not do everything he can, someone else might get hurt. And he cannot stand that. That said, Yhargulth has a rather friendly disposition, even if he is a bit sassy and very capable at laughing at tragedy. He enjoys the presence of Essengeth and Yharnath.

To his rider, Yhargulth may simply insist that they do things a certain way, but most of his methods are so others will not get hurt. He is very protective, even if he will say over and over that he's not. It's better that he get hurt than anyone else, or so he thinks. Who else is going to do the job right if not him? He is not above learning to do things a different way, and the more he can do to help the weyr, the better.

Voice: Strangely, Yhargulth sounds like a weary old woman which may lead people to think he is female.

Why me?: Yhargulth has the forethought to keep Xinia out of trouble, but the sass to make life interesting still.
