-Lynda Carter


BASICS

NAME: Borealis, will often go by Alis (Alice)
GENDER: No Beans (Non-Binary, born female)
PRONOUNS: They/them/theirs, will accept she/her but GREATLY prefers they/them
ORIENTATION: Yes.

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2714
AGE: 57 as of 2771
LOCATION: Semaca
OCCUPATION: Journeyman Healer / Wherhandler
WING: Healer's

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Brown, chest-length
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'9", parent bod
PLAY-BY: Lynda Carter
FULL APPEARANCE:
Borealis looks like they really care about the way they look, and they do! Their brown hair, chest-length hair is always neat and tidy, and they always pick out clothes that compliment their body type. They aren't skinny, no, there's a bit of meat on their bones, and that's okay! They're happy with the way that they look.

Borealis has pale skin that is just starting to pick up wrinkles, but really only on their face. For the most part, they have crow's feet and laughter lines, the rest will come with an older age. They have a smile that could light up a room, and Borealis really strides to present themself as someone who would be good to hug. (Spoiler: they are.)

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Borealis is friendly, sincere, and just overall really sweet. They're kindhearted, hard-working and love making friends. They have the energy of a kindergarten teacher who wanted kids but never got to have them and dotes on their students like they were their own kids. If they baby people a little, especially those younger than them, then that's on Borealis.

While they are kindhearted, they are also thickskinned. They follow the principle of do no harm and take no shards. They are kind first and foremost, but can get very authoritative with people who just don't listen- especially their patients. They need to listen to their healers, and if they don't? Why are you in the infirmary? While they like being nice, they genuinely don't care what other people think of them. It's not other people's business and Borealis just wants to live their life. They are not the best team player, and that's on Borealis as well. They just think that it is easier to get work done on their own because too many cooks in the kitchen can lead to chaos. They decline every offer of help from others, regardless if they need it or not.

BIRTHPLACE: Ruatha Hold
HISTORY:
Borealis was an only child born to a couple at Ruatha hold. A daughter like any other, she did what chores were expected of her and played with the other kids at her hold. She greatly enjoyed looking after the younger kids- even though she was quite young herself. As she grew up, she wished for more do. Something else. Her urge to dote and look after turned into the urge to heal, and she left for Healer Hall to become an apprentice.

During her time at Healer Hall, she started questioning whether or not she was really a girl for the first time. It never really sat right, but she didn't really know what to do about it. She met a man, Sterling, who was also an apprentice at Healer Hall. The two fell in love pretty easily and began dating. Soon after their graduation, their transfer to Igen, and becoming weyrmates, they welcomed their first child.

Igen's neutrality during the war brought Borealis nothing but joy. They had no want to tend to wartime wounded, the amount of mental scarring that would have put on her... she didn't even want to think about it. She simply continued doing her job. Five more children came along, and she enjoyed her offtime visiting her children in the creche and being a mother whenever she could.

As time passed she realized that she, in fact, was not a woman. But, she also wasn't a man. She was somewhere in the middle, but also not at all? It was complicated. The term 'non-binary' came up and she adopted that pretty quickly, switching her pronouns from she/her to they/them and feeling a sense of completeness that they hadn't for many years. It was quite funny to them when their husband came out as non-binary not long after.

As a 'bonding activity', and out of service to their Weyr, the two bought wher eggs for each other when the traders and their caravans came along. Borealis found themself with a BIG but very sweet blue wher, while Sterling found theself with a green. Post wherlinghood and a bit of wherhandling, the couple lost their love of Igen, and transferred to Semaca. They needed healers! They were happy to help out.

Borealis believes that there should be regulations on the pirates- what they can and cannot do- and they have opinions on the stability of the weyr, how it is built, the wall, protections against flooding. But, they're not of the craft that builds, so they know their opinions may not be backed up with things or actually be feasable. They keep quiet on them, and have no intentions of sharing them with anyone other than their weyrmate.

BOREALISK
Image
Borealis. Am Borealisk. Nice to meet. Is nice night for meeting.

BASICS

NAME: Borealisk
BIRTHDATE Winter 2761
AGE: 10 as of 2771

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 14ft
HEIGHT: 5.25ft
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #2a6176
FULL APPEARANCE:
Borealisk is utterly stunning.

A very much unambiguously blue wher, his dark navy blue-black hide seems an eerily realistic replica of the night sky during Turnover in the North. Amidst countless multitudes of miniature stars scattered throughout the dark expanse, the luminous curves and looped lines of multihued blue ‘lights’ - exactly like the lights of the northern Turnover Ghosts in Pern’s skies - somewhat softens the harsh angles and shapes of his stout bulk.

These aurora-like ‘lights’ cover his wedge-shaped head, extending from there to nearly at the end of his short tail, while simultaneously fading a brief distance down all four chunky muscled legs and nearly joining around his substantial middle. His impressive markings gives the illusion of almost-glowing brilliantly as if real; the image seeming to twist and turn realistically at each twitch, coil and other movement of the muscles beneath the deep navy ‘sky’ of Borealisk’s hide.

His two-toed feet deepen to a midnight blue shade so dark it appears nearly black, and his short, stunted wings bears a small yet equally realistic-looking alien moon nestled between the wing bones on both wingsails. On the wing ‘finger’ bones there is a slight gradient from dark navy - starting where it meets the wing ‘arms’ - to an almost teal-greenish blue shade at the wing tips.

And he’s big and strong!

Borealisk is on the larger end of the blue wher size range, his stout build certainly appearing to be more substantial and bulkier than usual, though he doesn’t seem to care about that.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Beneath Borealisk’s Large And Almost Intimidating bulk, lies an equally big and surprisingly sweet personality with a heart of gold.

He is fiercely loyal to his handler/likes his person, and is very dutiful, often nearly to the point of stubbornly insisting he CAN continue working even when he’s badly injured. For this reason, Borealisk frequently needs to be persuaded several times to allow the healing process to proceed properly before he tries to do anything counterproductive to recovery. Trust me, he will attempt to keep working! (Funnily enough, he will absolutely insist on making sure his human rests/doesn’t work when they get badly injured...)

He has a big temper, which can often lead him into trouble - and straight into fights without thought for the consequences - as it can be easy to get him riled up almost beyond reason. However, Borealisk does manage to know how to pick his battles though. Somebody’s scarf got stolen? No problem. Not big deal. Someone just tried to steal dragon or wher eggs in the Weyr? Instant RAGE, peppered with plenty of audibly loud swearing. He has an reasonably good set of morals for a wher; a somewhat idealistic black & white sense of right and wrong being in his possession.

Borealisk quite enjoys stargazing - oftentimes delighting particularly in watching the Turnover Ghosts so eerily similar to his ethereally eye-catching hide gracefully dancing through the sky - during any spare moments the blue wher (and by extension his handler) can wrangle out of their wherhandling schedule.

VOICE: His mindvoice - composed of short, broken and bluntly straight-to-the-point sentences, as expected of most average wher speech - ‘sounds’ weirdly like a very polite if somewhat gruff man with an Canadian accent, even when he explodes into an angry cascade of very creative swearing!
