WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue-Gray
HAIR:Black
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'2, Lithe

FULL APPEARANCE:
Stephen is a tall, thinly built man. His hair is well maintained, swooped to the right and beginning to gray just above the ears. He has a mustache and beard that he keeps neatly trimmed and short.

He already has the beginnings of wrinkles above his eyebrows and above his nose, likely from the near constant frowning he does. Stephen has sharp, defined cheekbones and an oval shaped face

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Stephen is not the kindest man. He can be described as extremely blunt and often inconsiderate. Underneath his cold exterior he hides a caring and damaged man, with a touch of dark humor and immense intelligence. He also holds a deep sense of moral compass. Though it has been tested and warped by his life, he feels a need to help others.

Getting close to him is difficult. He keeps everyone at arm's length, though seems to have a soft spot for younger people. To them he is less of a cold, unfeeling man and more of a strict but understanding mentor. He largely keeps to himself, but will speak when spoken to and often enjoys intellectually stimulating conversations.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Donna (sister, deceased)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches Hold
HISTORY: TW: Death
For the majority of his childhood and young adult life, he aspired to be a healer. His passion started when his sister fell ill. They were both younger, and the illness was chronic and had no cure. He set out to learn, and to attempt to find or develop a cure for her. In the end his journey to save her life was unsuccessful and she died when he was a Senior Apprentice. The loss of his sister and the sense of failure he felt from it led him to be much colder and less optimistic. Still, he didn't regret his choice of craft.

He poured himself into his work after his sister died. He made it his life's goal to help people he could, though he became a bit fatalistic when it came to extreme or near insolvable cases. After a few turns at High Reaches Hold he began to feel like he was stagnating in his work. That, and hearing all the misfortune that had happened at High Reaches Weyr with threadfall prompted him to travel to the Weyr, in an effort to further his craft. He transferred after the heavy threadfall in Fall of 2767.

At 25, he had a lot of work to do. He largely tried to ignore the turmoil of Weyr politics, focusing instead on the many injured from threadfall. So many wings were in ruins, so many riders injured. He just hoped his skills would be enough to save some lives. High Reaches seemed to need every healer it could get.

CARTH
Image

BASICS

Name: Carth
BIRTHDATE: Late Spring 2770
AGE: 0 as of Late Spring 2770

APPEARANCE
Length: 33ft
Height: 7.5ft
Wingspan: 48ft
Color: Blue
Hex code: #101080

FULL APPEARANCE:
Lean and wiry, Carth is as quick a blue as you'd ever see. He is fast, with narrow wings and an agile frame. He doesn't look like much of a fighter, and it doesn't seem like he'll be much good for anything but fighting thread. If that. He is a pale blue all over, with his markings a vibrant sapphire. The bold blue colors around his face like armor, and in sharp 'scales' over his shoulders. The same color juts sharply from his toes, and over the backs of his wings and ridges. The insides of his wings are still light, but marked up with 'scars' in the same sharp blue that colors the rest of him.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
At first glance, Carth doesn’t much care. He talks back to authority, shows up late for lessons and generally acts like nothing matters. Beneath his irreverence, however, Carth can be every bit as single-minded as his sister. He’s ambitious and competitive and wants to get ahead. He just doesn’t much like sucking up to the people in charge. What he does like is winning and he isn’t afraid to cheat a little to get his way. He has a streak of ruthlessness to him and will do what it takes to reach his goals. He’s a surprisingly good manipulator when he cares to be, knowing what to say and do to get what he wants. He’s entirely willing to twist the truth or outright lie if it that’s what it takes. Given the right motivation, he could make it far.

Carth expects absolute loyalty from his friends. He takes betrayal hard and doesn’t have much tolerance for people placing their own goals or values over him. He doesn’t much care whether he’s on the right side or the wrong side- he’s on the side he’s on and he’s going to do the best he can with that. His relationship with Adorath is complicated. She’s his sister and he loves her, but there’s a part of him that resents that he can never quite seem to catch up and that wonders if he wouldn’t be better off if she wasn’t there to overshadow him. When it comes to his rider, Carth can be a little clingy. He’ll sleep on the foot of their bed for as long as he can fit there and his head or tail may end up on their blankets even after he’s grown. They’re his person and he expects to be their first priority. He'll try to do right by them, so long as they put nothing else above him.

Voice: Carth's voice is suave and often a bit wry. He sometimes makes hissing sounds when startled.

Why me?: lol get rekt Stephen. This is your problem now.
