Candidate Willow

"If you scatter your anger around like dandelion seeds, you’ll hurt everyone, tire yourself out, and end up with a bunch of indignant dandelions."


RETIRE INFO: Retire both
NAME: Willow
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/Her/Hers
ORIENTATION: Lesbian, but very taken

BIRTHDATE: Early Spring 2749
AGE: 20

EYES: Green
HAIR: Brown, shoulder length and wavy, sun bleached at the ends
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 4", thin but not spindly.
Willow isn't built like someone who's capable of manual labor. She's thin all over, not well defined in any aspect of her body. She's far from weak, but she'll never be able to look anything but willowy (get it?). There's still a bit of baby fat in her face, but she'll grow out of it with time.

Her hair isn't the longest, stopping just past her shoulders. Its darkest at the roots, and grows a few shades lighter near the tips due to sun exposure. It's naturally wavy, and the shorter it is, the more it curls. At its current length, it isn't a hassle to take care of. Her eyes are dark green, framed by long lashes and accentuated by a near permanent smile.
Willow is kind, first and foremost. Though she's fairly quiet, she has no reservations about being kind to everyone she talks to. Her introvertedness doesn't run deep, and she's more than happy to speak to anyone, whether she initiates or they do. On top of that, she's fairly insightful. Sometimes she can be wise beyond her years, but there's a limit to how much she can help. She can get overwhelmed quickly, and may withdraw into herself for a while to recharge. The more intense someone is, the more likely she is to be drained quickly by being around them. The only exception to this seems to be Sundew, who she's more than happy to listen to for hours on end.

While she isn't prone to anger, she is the ice cold rage to Sundew's explosive anger when she gets there. There's a period of time where she will be icy and cruel before she admits to being angry. She won't yell, since it makes her feel horrible, but her solution to her anger isn't the best either.

BIRTHPLACE: A Minor hold beholden to Fort Weyr
Willow was born into a loving family. Her childhood days were filled with what they should be filled with; friends, Hold restricted adventures, and dreams of dragon riding. She was ten when she met Sundew. There was something a little different about her. She wasn't nearly as carefree as some of the other hold kids, like she had a weight on her shoulders despite being younger. They developed a fast friendship, Willows calm and caring meshing well with Sundew's tendency towards aggression. By the time they came of age to be searched, those feelings had developed into something deeper, almost without them noticing.

Willow was searched first at 16, and by then she knew the circumstances of Sundew's family. She brought Sundew up to the searchdragon, ecstatic when she was also considered worthy to be a candidate. Sundew hesitated, which Willow had expected. She took her hands, pleading gently with her to go. If she could get Sundew away from family stress, this would be her chance. It didn't take much convincing.

With Sundew coming along, though, she decided that going to Fort Weyr might not be far enough away. If they went further, Sundew could relax, and so could she knowing that her weyrmate was at ease. Semaca was a budding Weyr that could use them both, too. Somewhere they could both grow, somewhere they could settle down together.
