"Take my hand. You'll be OK."

BASICS

NAME: Natira; occasionally called 'Gnat' much to her dismay
GENDER: Feminine
PRONOUNS: Feminine (she/her/hers)
ORIENTATION: Biromantic Heterosexual (prefers men/masculine people)

BIRTHDATE: Early Spring 2744
AGE: 28 as of Early Spring 2772
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Apprentice Starsmith, Brownrider
WING: Pavane

APPEARANCE
EYES: Hazel (greenish-brown), doe-eyed and bright

HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 4", delicately-built and slender
PLAY-BY: N/A, credits go to picrew.me, eyes edited by Ignys! :D
FULL APPEARANCE: Natira is small, at 5' 4" in height and very light in weight. Even a slightly-built man could throw her over his shoulder with little difficulty. Her skin is a light tan and unmarred by freckles or other marks or scars, with a cute button nose and slender features. Her hair is a dark brown, brushing her shoulder blades when let down, often held back in a ponytail. Her eyes are doe-eyed and hazel in color, green sparkling amid the brown, an intelligent gleam deep within. She typically wears modest clothes around the Weyr, and a heavy duty jacket when flying or Thread-fighting, as she can chill easily.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Natira is caring and kind and sweet, and very rarely finds any reason to lose her temper. She loves to help others, and often goes out of her way to do so. She is a dreamer with a gentle soul, who believes that the stars hold many secrets that have yet to be discovered, and a love for all things in life. She loves to read on any subject, often taking a mug of chocolatey klah and settling in her weyr with Khalbath when she has a free moment. Natira is also notably shy, though not as shy as some. She has a tendency to efface herself and try to pass by unnoticed, though she is perfectly comfortable in conversation with others.

Just because she's sweet doesn't mean she's a pushover. Well, most of the time. 99% of the time, Natira is perfectly fine with being ordered about and following the lead of others. She feels that people with bad tempers will soften if she is kind and willing. Yet there's that 1% of her that is stubborn as all hell. Piss her off, and she'll make a decision that she thinks is best and refuse to budge. She can see your way, but she isn't stupid, and it doesn't mean she feels that your way is best. That said, she is devoted to serving her wing, and won't make a choice that is detrimental to the wing's goals and wellbeing. While she doesn't like it when others take credit for her work, she'll often keep her mouth shut and keep her head down, just for the benefit of others.

Stress: all day, every day. If Natira has a flaw, it is her ability to stress out over every little detail of every little thing. That doesn't mean she is a perfectionist; she simply gets very stressed over inconsequential matters. This takes a minor toll on her ability to function, leaving her occasionally forgetful in high-stress situations and wearing her down mentally. Often, Natira's tendency to over-stress, on top of her personal star-recording and duties as a brownrider, exhausts her. She does her best to serve everyone around her that she often forgets to take care of herself, though she always sleeps the sleep of the content and the just...when she sleeps.

All in all, Natira is a sweet girl with a heart of gold, but her tendency to stress like crazy drags her down from reaching her full potential. She is rarely stubborn, but when she is, good luck getting her to follow you. She is intelligent and kind, a motherly and patient individual, always glad to help others to the best of her abilities. She loves her Khalbath and serving her wing deeply, even more than reading, which is saying something. She is also a strict vegetarian, but she doesn't try to foist it on others, and she is happy to cook meat for others on request. She is a very good cook, and loves her chosen hobby.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father - Glasscrafter, living
Mother - Starsmith, living
Older brother - Smith, living
Two younger brothers - both living and being obnoxious as usual
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Cove of Green Eponath
BIRTHPLACE: Benden Hold
HISTORY: Natira had humble beginnings. Both her parents were Crafters, her father being a Glasscrafter and her mother a Starsmith. She inherited her big heart from her father and her love for the stars from her mother, and from both her creativity and her wandering dreams. Natira was an older sister and the only girl, and very good at her job. She learned from her mother how to cook and tend a house, so that Natira could care for her siblings while the mother worked her Craft. Natira was a momma's girl, through and through, and followed her mother's footsteps as a Starsmith and a hobbyist cook.

She was Searched from her home in Benden Hold when she was 16 and brought to Benden Weyr, though she did not Impress there. She loved weyr-life all the same...until she started realizing what was happening around her. Friend Alayna and Wyzeth disappeared from public sight, and the clutches of the other Benden queens suddenly got larger than any other queens'. This was all quite confusing to the Candidate, making her worry more than usual. Feeling too uncomfortable and sure that something was wrong in Benden, in addition to a failed relationship with a fellow Candidate, Natira transferred to Ista Weyr, Impressing brown Khalbath not long after. It was the happiest moment of her life, and she immediately entered weyrling classes with pride. The strange occurrences of Benden got swept to the back of Natira's mind, as her duties ramped up as Khalbath grew. She never truly forgot her friend, however, and wrote to Alayna as often as she could. Natira never got a reply, and the letters eventually tapered before finally stopping.

Then the truth was discovered when Alayna escaped to Fort, and Natira was absolutely disgusted when she heard. She stayed only long enough for Khalbath to reach full size and for their graduation. When the time was right, Natira applied for transfer, wanting to see her friend again. Besides, there were problems in the dynamic of her wing, only bolstering her decision to transfer. Khalbath, in a rare moment of decisiveness, heartily approved, wanting to see Wyzeth and protect the queen wherever she went. Suddenly too wary, she rejected both Fort and High Reaches, on the basis that Fort was still 'traditionalist' and High Reaches was still recovering from Golre's reign of terror, and absolutely refusing to return to Benden. Things were just so...off now. Thus, she and Khalbath packed up their things and transferred to the budding Semaca Weyr, cutting off ties to Benden and shunning new developments; she didn't need any more of that Weyr in her life.

When she arrived at Semaca, Natira was withdrawn and too shy to approach. She visited her family often, drawing comfort from home. That was where she acquired a firelizard egg, a birthday gift from her mother. It hatched out a peaceful little white, and Natira dubbed him Hope. Then his true colors shone through, revealing him to be possessive and overly protective of his human. Natira doesn't hold it against him, and loves him all the same, even when he makes things difficult.

Natira has remained shut off from everyone up until recently, when the brownrider finally got done berating herself for leaving Alayna in Benden all those Turns ago. She emerged like a phoenix from the ashes of her former self, beginning to interact properly with her fellows riders and others around her. Natira may no longer be truly fresh from Ista, but she hopes to make a positive impact on the world in the Southern Weyr, to erase what happened back at Benden.

UPDATES
  • Summer 2772: Reunites with Alayna.
  • Early Fall 2772: Garnet Quadratoth rises; Khalbath gives chase and wins her favor.
  • Late Spring 2773: At Semaca's second Dragon Day, Natira and Cove express their deep-seated affections for one another. The two become official weyrmates!

Khalbath

Image

BASICS

NAME: Khalbath
BIRTHDATE: Late Summer 2768
AGE: 8 as of 2776

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 43 ft.
HEIGHT: 11.25 ft.
WINGSPAN: 67.75 ft.
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: #4e2a11
FULL APPEARANCE:
Khalbath is a strong brown, though smaller than most. A rich klah brown paints his entire body, except a lighter brown across his throat and chest and down his front legs. Completely covered in markings like stars, a galaxy on his chest and a circle of giants on his wing, Natira is convinced that Khalbath shines on cloudless nights.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
In a nutshell, Khalbath is scatterbrained; he's rarely able to focus on a thought for long, something in his surroundings always causing him to lose his concentration and sending him along a new thought. Thread is his single exception. In Threadfall, Khalbath is extremely focused; he's a protector at heart, devoted to saving those that need saving and shielding others from harm. Be it human, dragon, wher, or firelizard, Khalbath loves to engage others, often in mindless chatter about what's presently on his mind. Though he's reasonably intelligent, he can be confused easily, quite vulnerable to being tricked. A playful and curious dragon, he's absolutely intrigued by insects and loves learning new things.

To his bonded, Khalbath is a sweetheart and best friend. Natira helps him manage his scatterbrained nature, keeping him focused and on task. Khalbath absolutely adores Natira and wants to do everything in her company; stargaze, observe insects, eat, absolutely everything under Rukbat. Though he's very attentive to her needs and always thinking of her wellbeing, he doesn't always know how to word his suggestions to her. Between his love for humans and his nature as a gentle giant, Khalbath is good at Searching Candidates, something he both loves and excels at, so long as Natira keeps him focused.

VOICE: Khalbath's voice is like that of a young boy, high and full of wonder at everything he sees. If he's happy or excited, sometimes to be heard above others, he has a tendency to shout.

Hope

Image

BASICS

NAME: Hope
BIRTHDATE: Late Spring 2768
AGE: 8 as of Early Spring 2776

APPEARANCE
COLOR: White
FULL APPEARANCE:
Hope is average size for a white firelizard, though unusually strong for a creature so small. For his coat, he's midnight black, though there's a soft white sheen across his entire body, while his eyes are beady and usually narrowed malevolently at whoever took Natira’s focus off him.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Hope is a jerk, being incredibly possessive of Natira. Hope won't hesitate to bite or scratch to get what he wants, be it his bonded's immediate notice or something else that strikes his fancy. While everyone else is subject to his constant ire, Natira is always an exception, safe from being bitten or scratched. Hope takes it as his mission to protect Natira, always staying close to her and attacking those he sees as a danger to her. That said, he isn't all bad. In private, he's often very cuddly toward Natira, especially after eating; he loves wherry meat above all, though he isn't as food-motivated as other firelizards.

Nightmare

Image

BASICS

NAME: Nightmare
BIRTHDATE: Late Spring 2776
AGE: Newborn as of 2776

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Chimera (Garnet/Brown)
FULL APPEARANCE:
Nightmare is a large firelizard, but he walks so proudly it makes him seem bigger still. Being both a chimera and wearing colors so bright, he's hard to miss. While predominantly a rich purple color, a lighter violet paints his face in a little mask, wine-colored "tears" streaming down his face. A bold golden brown stitches down his flanks and covers his wingfingers, while his front paws and tailtip are yellow brown.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
In contrast to his name, Nightmare is a charming little gentleman, rather personable and friendly. Though he can get a little touchy about who comes close to his Natira, he's usually very friendly to everyone he meets. An energetic and excitable firelizard, he can get very loud and too up-close-and-personal if he's spun up. Nightmare is a bit of a beggar at mealtimes, seeing as he's very fond of human food and loves trying new things. If he gets too overwhelmed or overstimulated (which happens on a regular basis), he always looks to Natira for comfort and support.
