Candidate Ephraim

"I'm Ephraim. Now, how about we cut this short and get to sparring? It's a better way to get to know each other."


RETIRE INFO: Character-Adopt, Dragon-Adopt
NAME: Ephraim
ORIENTATION: Bisexual Biromantic

BIRTHDATE: Early Spring of 2751
AGE: 19 as of 2770
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr

HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6' 2", muscular
PLAY-BY: Ephraim
Ephraim sits right around the average height for PERN, with a stature that gives him a large presence. He has wide shoulders and an intense gaze, but an overall friendly disposition. His hair is brown, barely long enough to hang in his eyes.

He is often covered in small wounds due to his tendency to favor sparring over mental stimulation, though he does not have many noticeable scars. He prefers using his hands and being active over things that require him to sit in one place. Due to constantly working with them, his hands are calloused and rough. They are also large and have a firm grip, good for the strong handshakes he likes to introduce himself with. He will get fidgety if he has to be still too long.

Ephraim's personality can be described as 'act first, think later'. He is straightforward and to-the-point. He doesn't particularly enjoy sitting still, and will use any excuse he can think of to get out of it. This contributes to his dislike of lessons, which prompts him to consider -and attempt- to get out of them. That isn't to say he's not intelligent. He just prefers to learn things in a more hands-on approach, as opposed to sitting still listening to someone lecture.

He's not shy by any means, willing to go up to complete strangers and introduce himself (in his search of sparring partners, he'll reason). In reality he is just a genuinely kind, caring person, though he may come off a bit brash and rough around the edges. He struggles sometimes with being considerate of others and communicating, due to only opening up to his sister and father in the past. To those with authority he is respectful to an extent. He has his own reservations about them, certainly, but he's good at keeping them to himself. He understands the importance of keeping risky opinions to himself, though he may let them slip if he becomes agitated enough.

Fado (father)
Eirika (twin sister)
BIRTHPLACE: A minor hold in the west
Ephraim's childhood was full of big dreams of grandeur. He was always encouraged in his dreams, though he had to be held back occasionally when he got too far ahead of himself. This was mostly his father's doing. Ephraim had every intention of becoming a rider and joining a wing, but he moved a bit too fast. He was reminded time and time again that he couldn't be a candidate until he was of age.

By 14 he was discontent with his mostly quiet life, doing everything in his power to get the attention of search dragons. His Hold life wasn't going to get him to where he wanted to be, and candidacy seemed like the next step in his overall goal. Though his dreams would require him to leave behind his family, he couldn't slow down now! He was so close to taking the next step in his path to success.

Finally, at 16, he succeeded in gaining the attention of searchers. His anxious need to get out of his Hold had finally been realized, and he was one step closer to seeing his dream come to fruition. Once he actually got to Semaca Weyr, he assimilated to life there fairly well. He thrived on the hands-on aspect of it. Now all there was to do was to impress a dragon.

IC Information
What type of candidate is your character: Dragon

What color/s does your character want?: All colors! Preferably larger ones.
Does your character have any personality preferences or concerns?: He'd have to say a hard no would be a dragon that disliked his sister or choice of friends.
Does your character have any other preferences or concerns?: A meek dragon probably won't do well with his personality. He'd want one that can handle him.
OOC Information
If your character is a dual candidate IC, do you have a strong preference on whether they Impress dragon or wher?: N/A

What color(s) are you willing for your character to impress to?: All of them!
Do you have any personality preferences or concerns?: Nope!
Do you have any other preferences or concerns?: Just what I put in the IC concerns. A dragon that can't handle him probably won't be good. I'd prefer one for him that isn't completely against fighting. I feel like the relationship wouldn't develop well.
Why do you think these choice/s would be a good fit?: Ephraim can be a bit intense and hard headed. He needs to know when to pull back, but he shouldn't be completely subdued. That would probably build resentment to an extent, and sour a relationship with a dragon like that.

Do you have any preferences about the conditions of your character’s impression?: Whatever the admins see fit!
Are you alright with your character getting hurt? What injury level is acceptable/what should be avoided?: Yes, but I would prefer injuries be limited to things that will scar, but heal. He'd like to keep all his limbs in good working order, preferably!

Is there anything you will ABSOLUTELY NOT accept?: Nope, nothing comes to mind!
