Candidate Kinkajou

Kinkajou
"Isn’t this exciting? I’m so excited I can hardly STAND IT."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire
NAME: Kinkajou
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/Her/Hers
ORIENTATION: Panromantic, sexually uncertain.

BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2754
AGE: 15 as of Late Spring 2770
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Green
HAIR: Blond
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'3", lithe.
FULL APPEARANCE:
Kinkajou, while not fully grown by a long shot, is a tiny package of muscle. She's lean; thin without being spindly but not quiet muscular. Her hair is dirty blond, and falls past her shoulders. Usually she has it up in a low ponytail, but she likes experimenting with the style from time to time. She enjoys sticking brightly colored flowers she finds in it as well. She has wide, bright green eyes and long eyelashes. Kinkajou also has a collection of burn scars on the back of her upper right arm and the right side of her upper back, which are the result of an incident in the kitchens involving boiling water.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Kinkajou is very much still a kid. She's bouncy, easily excitable, and seems like she doesn't have a care in the world. She tries to make the best out of any situation, even ones that don't seem to have a bright side to them. Her volume control is virtually zero when she's excited, but she's getting better about catching it. She will, however, get a bit touchy with people and fidget. She also doesn't take too kindly to people hurting her friends. Her anger is much like her excitement; loud and uncontrolled. She's capable of being somewhat frightening with how animated and heated she gets.

Kinkajou is also capable of being somewhat snarky. People that get on her nerves often receive silly nicknames, which she isn't opposed to using in front of them. Sometimes she also wonders if her exuberant nature leads her to find things out later than most people. She often feels like she's the last to know things, which brings her some level of distress. This is far from the truth, as Kinkajou is fairly perceptive. She just doesn't see herself as such.
HISTORY
FAMILY:
Gardenia (Adoptive Mother)
Tamarin (Adoptive Sister)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Weyr
HISTORY:
Kinkajou never met her parents, and that's honestly okay with her. The family she does have, blood or not, is more than she could ever ask for. The Creche was home, and her small little 'family' was more than enough for her. She knew, being where she was, that she had a pretty good chance of becoming a candidate. At first, she wasn't so sure that was what she wanted. Threadfall scared her. She had seen a few people coming and going that bore the scars of it, told the horror stories of flying it. She couldn't imagine actually going through with something so scary.

As more turns passed, though, she began to really think about it. Dragon riders kept them safe. They put themselves in harms way to keep the people on the ground from getting hurt. She got a little braver with age, until eventually, at 14, she decided she would stand the next turn. Despite her concerns, she figured the benefits of a dragon outweighed them. She wanted a friend, a partner, someone who would be by her side no matter what.

Her candidacy led her to High Reaches, under the news of the massive hits they were taking from thread. Sure, it was more dangerous, but she had a much more important role to play there. The future of the sparse wings! No impression happened at the donated Bended clutch, but that didn't deter her. She went about her chores. One incident in the kitchen led a pot of boiling water to be knocked over and splashed over the right side of her back and arm. The burns were treated, but still ended up scarring. Her recovery kept her from things for a while, but with no eggs on the sand, she wasn't too bothered. She knew she would recover long before the next clutch, and only had to be patient for her chance.

Except, her next chance didn't come when she expected it. With two eggs mysteriously appearing on the sands, and the hatchlings confused and hurt and angry. It was shocking, more so when she learned the eggs were stolen. And from her home no less! Suddenly she wasn't so sure she wanted to be at High Reaches, if they did things like steal eggs.

Firefly
Image


BASICS
NAME: Firefly
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2770
AGE: 0 as of Early Fall 2770

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Labradorite (Unique)
FULL APPEARANCE:
Firefly is a beautiful, striking flit. The majority of her body is black, occasionally lightened by smoky white markings. She has a few whispy yellow stripes stretching from her shoulder all the way to her wing tips. Her face and the furthermost half of both wings is bright blue, making her not a chimera, but a unique color of firelizard.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Firefly is sweet and tolerant. She has to be with Kinkajou. There's not much that will get her to snap or hiss, and it takes a lot to get her to that point. She loves to be held, and will climb into people's laps or drape herself over shoulders. Kinkajou always makes it a point to hold her like a baby when possible. She's not very skillful at tricks, but she makes an excellent messenger.
