BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Character - Retire, Dragon - Adopt (someone feel free to make a Barriss expy)
NAME: Barriss
GENDER: Cis female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Demiromantic graysexual

BIRTHDATE: Midsummer 2739
AGE: 30 as of summer 2769
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wingrider, Journeyman Healer
WING: Healer's

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Black
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 10", sturdy
PLAY-BY: Barriss Offee (Star Wars)
FULL APPEARANCE: Barriss is distinguished more by her clothing and tattoos than her natural features, save perhaps for her large blue eyes. Even those are relatively ordinary, except for their contrast against her brown skin. She has regular features, with full, dark lips and a straight nose. Clothing-wise, she wears ankle-length black dresses with full-length sleeves and simple, sturdy boots. She always wears a matching black headscarf that completely covers her short black hair. Perhaps the most unusual thing about her is a series of diamond-shaped black tattoos across her nose and cheeks.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Years of conditioning have taught Barriss to be a completely different person than she might have otherwise been. Outwardly, she appears calm, patient, thoughtful, and observant, the very model of a good little journeyman healer. If one scratches her surface, though, one finds a surprising strength of will hidden behind the mask. Her patience is persistent and unyielding, like the ceaseless beat of the tides. Sometimes, if she lets her guard down, it gives way to a fiery, impulsive streak that surprises even her in its intensity. This impulsivity led her to follow Ahsoka when the other woman fled Fort Hold, stopped her from staying behind and being the good little guard-healer her mother wanted.

Strangely for a healer, she prefers combat to diplomacy as a way of resolving conflict - or, as she likes to call her methods, "aggressive negotiations." She thinks that talking, rather than acting, is wasted time that could have been used to solve problems. She pushes herself to her limits in both combat and healing, trying to achieve the peak level that she can in each craft.

She isn't entirely lacking in the compassion necessary to be a healer, though it manifests in a different form than some might wish. While willing to focus on individuals in the field or infirmary, she generally acts for the greater good. People are necessary sacrifices, she thinks, and if the time comes where she is such a sacrifice, she will gladly lay down her life for what she believes will further Pern's advancement.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Luminara (foster mother/aunt, estranged)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Ahsoka
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Hold
HISTORY: Barriss's parents died when she was young, and she was taken in by her aunt Luminara, a healer who worked closely with the guards of Fort Hold. Luminara was a strict guardian, sparing with her praise and affection. From an early age, Barriss took an interest in combat perhaps more than healing. She continued to study under her aunt, but secretly enjoyed her training sessions with her guardling friends more. Her best friend was Ahsoka; the pair grew increasingly close over the Turns, training together and teaching each other what they knew.

Luminara accepted that her charge was more a fighter at heart with surprising grace, but continued to push her to be an excellent healer. She was distinctly unhappy when Ahsoka and Barriss became lovers near the end of Barriss's apprenticeship, viewing Ahsoka as a distraction. Nonetheless, when Barriss walked the tables at age 22, Luminara performed a risky tattooing procedure on her face to mark her gain in rank. It was a tradition among their family, and only done by and for the healers among them.

Shortly after Barriss walked the tables, when she was settling into her new role as journeyman healer and Ahsoka's girlfriend, Evander came to power. Barriss smelled a metaphorical rat immediately, but Ahsoka stubbornly maintained her loyalty to Fort's leadership. For the first time, the girls did not see eye to eye on an important issue, and there was friction between them, increased when Ahsoka was groomed for the elite Hold guard and rewarded with a garnet wher egg for her loyalty. Barriss was scared for her girlfriend, and more than a little jealous of her wher.

After Evander's assassination, Ahsoka fled, taking Barriss with her despite their frayed relationship. Over the sevendays spent in the wilderness, surviving off their training, they mended their relationship, and are closer than ever before. They arrived at High Reaches, a little leaner but otherwise alive and healthy, and settled in well. Ahsoka jumped at the chance to move to Semaca when the new southern Weyr was opened, and Barriss went with her willingly. She put herself forward as a dual candidate once she arrived, based on a small childhood dream of flying she'd always had.

UPDATES
  • Winter 2765 - Barriss Impresses green Moorith at the Etudes hatching. She's thrilled, but it has created a rift between her and Ahsoka due to the 18-month separation and their now-opposing schedules.
  • Spring? 2767 - Barriss transfers back to Semaca to reunite with Ahsoka and help the healer's wing.

Moorith

BASICS

NAME: Moorith
BIRTHDATE Late winter 2765
AGE: 3 as of summer 2769

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: NO
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 26 ft
HEIGHT: 6.5 ft
WINGSPAN: 40 ft
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #35805e
FULL APPEARANCE: A dainty, serene green who looks like she is made of blown glass, Moorith is a beautiful creature. She does not look like she should be up there, fighting with others against Thread. Actually, some might say she should have been gold, there is just some otherwordly loveliness to her that is hard to describe. She is a soft, evergreen color all over. In the right light, she looks more of an emerald color. There is a light color over her head and eyes like a veil, and down her neck in crescent moon shapes. There is a flower-like design on her left shoulder that trails down her arm, and it looks like she has pearl bracelets on her forelegs. The same pale color covers her toes.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Serenity incarnate, Moorith is a princess. She is poised, dainty, and composed at all times. She shows no weakness, only a softness that can be described as grace. But she is not maternal, and has no feelings towards caring for small children or eggs. She would rather have none of that ever. She is firm in her opinions, and holds herself above so many others. Not out of arrogance, but out of genuine thought that she is not part of Pern, and that this is just a visit that she is taking. One day she will go 'home,' but she is in no hurry to do so or to say where 'home' is.

To her rider, Moorith is a dedicated diplomat. It takes a long time to warm up to someone, even her partner, but she picks everything with care and plenty of thought. Though it may seem hard to get to know her at first, know she did not make this choice without careful consideration. She is especially close to Zappath. The two are almost inseparable, and it seems they are the only ones who really understand one another. She wants to just enjoy the life she has before her.

Voice: Moorith sounds like Audrey Hepburn like a woman of mystery and elegance. Serene and strong.
