BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire both, expy idea but not exact app can be reused
NAME: Cornelia
GENDER: Cis female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Demiromantic demisexual

BIRTHDATE: Late winter 2736
AGE: 32 as of summer 2769
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Weyrleader, Wingleader
WING: Nocturne

APPEARANCE
EYES: Dark blue
HAIR: Red
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6' 2" with heels, sturdy
PLAY-BY: Cornelia li Britannia
FULL APPEARANCE: An imposing woman, Cornelia carries herself proudly, as befits a noblewoman-turned-dragonrider. She keeps her wavy hair as immaculately as she did when she had a maid to do it for her, and dresses herself in elaborate, but still riding-suitable, outfits in red and white. She switched from dresses to tight blouses and pants early on, and is rarely found in dresses, even for Gathers. She enjoys wearing high-heeled white boots to put herself on a more even footing with her brothers. She usually has a stern expression on her face, and it only softens when she's alone with her dragon or sister Euphemia.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: In another world, Cornelia would have been the best strategist of her generation. Though overshadowed by her half-brothers, she's still a formidable opponent. She has that rare combination of instinct and forethought, able to adapt her meticulous plans as soon as conditions change. She's not afraid to get her hands dirty and is a merciless warrior. She fights for a larger cause; she's devoted to her father and her Weyr, and Faranth help those that endanger them. Absolutely determined to achieve her goals, she will stop at almost nothing. She does value the lives of her subordinates, and would rather make a reluctant retreat then waste their lives unnecessarily. Guiloth has made her more cautious, for she does not wish to risk her dragon more than she has to.

Cornelia does have a softer side; she dotes on her younger sister Euphemia, one of the only siblings she's still on good terms with. If any harm came to her, Cornelia would use any means at her disposal to kill those at fault. Though devoted to her duty, she misses simpler times, where the two of them were just sisters and there was no politics getting in the way. She has a complicated relationship with Lelou and Nunnally and regrets their banishment to High Reaches Weyr. While she views Lelou as an opponent, she also misses being his sister. It remains to be seen whether she'll let familial love get in the way of her duty.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Lord Harel (father), Marianne (stepmother), Schneizel (half-brother), Lelou (half-brother), Euphemia (full sister), Nunnally (half-sister), several other siblings
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Minor cothold beholden to High Reaches
HISTORY: Cornelia grew up as one of Lord Harel's older children. Her younger sister Euphemia was the light of her life, and to this day she will do anything for her. Marianne helped raise her, and Cornelia grew to idolize her in place of the mother she'd lost when she was young. She and her younger siblings were happy, for a time. Then the war took Marianne, and in a way, Lelou and Nunnally, too. Her father exiled them to High Reaches Weyr, and though the by-then-adult Cornelia saw the need, she mourned the necessity.

She visited Telgar Hold in the hope of a political marriage with a distant cousin of the heir, but before much negotiation happened, she was Searched, and decided to go with the dragonrider to Telgar Weyr. She had other siblings to make alliances. Shortly before her twenty-fifth Turn-day, she Impressed - not a gold as her father hoped, or a green, but a garnet, still a strange new color on Pern. Guiloth was a partner, a perfect complement to Cornelia's force of will, and Lord Harel took to his daughter's new position with surprising grace.

She graduated and took her place in the Telgar wings, but at her father's behest, she transferred to High Reaches to keep an eye on the now-adult Lelou.

UPDATES
  • Winter 2765 - Cornelia transfers to Semaca, ostensibly to help boost their dragon population if Guiloth happens to clutch. Also, she considers it a nice vacation from Lelou and Suzaku. She's really fleeing Schneizel's leadership, but don't tell her that.
  • Spring 2766 - Guiloth clutches, and her eggs become part of the Sol clutch. She adopts the Omega Strike egg, which hatches into blue-bronze Isith. Isith Impresses Lelou, much to Cornelia's disgust.
  • Spring 2767 - Cornelia slightly strains her left elbow catching firestone sacks. When she lands, she is far more concerned about her sister Euphie, who cut her throat tripping over a knife.

Guiloth
Image
Art commissioned by Tortellini from Woky, do not reuse

BASICS

NAME: Guiloth (GILL-loth)
BIRTHDATE Early fall 2761
AGE: 8 as of summer 2769

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 45 ft
HEIGHT: 11.25 ft
WINGSPAN: 67.5 ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #B4ACC3
FULL APPEARANCE: Guiloth is a powerhouse; she's a large garnet, pushing the limits of her size, and is well-proportioned. She's sturdily built, though still nimble enough to execute basic acrobatics and catch smaller patches of Thread. Her hide is a stunning mix of purples. A lavender base with the faintest hints of a metallic sheen is heavily overlaid by a rich mauve, coating her back, the back of her wingsails, and belly and extending upwards and downwards with swirling patterns. This mauve also covers her head in a masklike pattern.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: As dragons go, Guiloth is intelligent, enjoying helping her rider with strategies and sometimes coming up with some of her own. Like her rider, she has a caring side, though she's even more reserved with her affection than Cornelia. She's a risk-taker, seeing the end as above the means, and is willing to put herself in danger to achieve her or her rider's goals. If it ever came to it, she would sacrifice herself so that Cornelia could live without a second thought.

To her rider, she's a devoted partner, and the bond between the pair is strong and unwavering. There are few barriers between the pair, except during mating flights. Guiloth isn't that fond of them, and knows her rider isn't either, so she thins the bond on purpose. She will always return to her rider immediately afterward, though, no matter what mate she chooses. Cornelia will always be first in her mind and heart.

Strudel
Image

BASICS

NAME: Strudel
BIRTHDATE Early summer 2765
AGE: 4 as of summer 2769

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: Large
HEIGHT: Large
WINGSPAN: Large
COLOR: Bronze
HEX CODE: #954300
FULL APPEARANCE: Rather orange for a bronze, Strudel is nonetheless a glorious example of his color. Or so he thinks. He'll always be a little on the pudgy side despite Cornelia's best efforts, since he can convince people to feed him even if Cornelia puts him on a strict diet. And she will. He's basically unremarkable other than being large for a bronze and having marks of lighter orange around his ankles and on his snout.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Strudel is a brat. He isn't even consistent about it. He could be a great messenger if he tried, but he's extremely finicky and takes great delight in taunting Cornelia by obeying her perfectly about 20% of the time. He's extremely sweet to people when he wants something - everyone except Cornelia. He's mean to her without reserve because he knows that deep down she has some fondness for him and wouldn't let him go wild.
