Candidate Glory

Glory
"No way! A TREE? in the forest?"

BASICS

RETIRE INFO:Dragon - Adopt, Character - Retire
NAME:Glory
GENDER:Female
PRONOUNS:She/Her/Hers
ORIENTATION: Biromantic Bisexual

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2750
AGE: 20 as of 2770
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Green
HAIR: Auburn
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 6", lean
FULL APPEARANCE:
Glory has deep green eyes and long auburn hair, kept in a low ponytail on most occasions. Its just easier long, that way she can tie it back and not have it whip around her face and tickle her skin. She doesn't, however, put much effort into maintaining it. Keeping it clean is her only priority when it comes to her hair. This leads to it looking messy and windswept on many occasions. She doesn't mind much, as long as the knots are easy to brush out.

Glory is lean, built like a whip. She isn't necessarily speedy, but she has the upper body strength to make good on any threats she might make. Her muscles don't give her much bulk, but they exist.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Glory may be a bit small, but she makes up for it with a spitfire personality and upper body strength to prove her point. She isn't, by any means, polite. She's blunt, sarcastic, and has very little filter. If you piss her off, she'll tell you, and she won't be nice about it. Her resting bitch face doesn't help either. If anything, it makes her seem more unapproachable than her brash personality does.

Glory doesn't enjoy talking with strangers much, or give much of a thought of their opinions of her. With her friends, though, she's full of playful jabs of sarcasm and loving, but blunt, conversation. Their opinions are the ones that matter to her, though she would lie to the ends of PERN that she doesn't care what they think. Despite seeming aloof about the opinions of others, she understands how she comes off to a lot of people. Some have reinforced the feeling that she won't be anything but grumpy and rude. Glory often doubts if she can change, which has led her to believe that she doesn't necessarily need to.

Glory likes being in the sun, and finds herself feeling gloomy if she's suck in the caverns all day. She takes every opportunity to be out in the sunlight. Her mood can be considerably worse than normal if she's unable to get a few minutes of sun in her off time.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Grayce (adoptive mother)
Jambu (adoptive brother)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Weyr
HISTORY:
Glory's earliest memories have always been of the Creche. She has no idea who her parents are Not that she cared much, but the few occasions she bothered asking lead her to the same conclusion: they didn't care. That realization led her to stop caring, and pretend it didn't hurt her a little. All she knew was her 'family' at the Creche. Grayce was older, but she was effectively a mother to her, and Jambu was her unfortunately over exuberant 'brother'. He was exhausting to be around, but he was family.

Transitioning into candidacy was her only path. She had little interest in crafts or healing, but a spark of interest when it came to dragons. She craved some sort of Independence, a chance to prove she was more than 'too laid back' or 'too snippy'. The only person she wanted to prove wrong was herself. She wanted to silence the thoughts of inadequacy in her head. As much as it distressed her to leave, she figured Semaca could do with new candidates over Fort. Also, it was warmer! But she had every intention to visit her adoptive family. Heck, maybe Fort would be where she found her dragon partner.

Mangrove
Image


BASICS
NAME: Mangrove
BIRTHDATE Late Spring 2770
AGE: 0 as of Late Spring 2770

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Blue
FULL APPEARANCE:
Mangrove is a bold, almost blinding shade of blue. His markings are navy. He has one patch of navy over his right eye, and zigzagging stripes of navy on his tail. Each leg, save for his left front leg, has two stripes of navy on it. His wings are a little smaller than they should be, which makes his proportions look odd and lopsided, but doesn't affect his flight. He might not be graceful, but he's perfectly capable of it.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
To say Mangrove is grumpy is an understatement. He's irritable and easily annoyed, but not outright mean. He'll just huff and puff about it, or complain to Glory like she's capable of understanding him. He's rather alert and perceptive. He always manages to find Glory if she leaves her barracks without him.
