BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire / Adopt Wher
NAME: Shiko
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Bisexual

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

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'6", Solid Muscles
PLAY-BY: (n/a)
FULL APPEARANCE:
Shiko is a little on the short side while not managing to be called small, though the densely packed muscle and the way she holds herself both tend to make her seem larger than she is. Mid-length brown hair reaches to the middle of her shoulder blades on the rare occasion she allows it freedom, but is more often than not subjugated into a thick ponytail where it won't get in her face while she works. The corners of her eyes are perpetually pinched, as though she spent a great deal of time staring into the sun or constantly in bright light and just forgot how to open her eyes the whole way.

Her right arm from the elbow down is covered in old, light burn scars that have been well exercised to ensure that they don't interfere with her freedom of motion, but she keeps it wrapped in bandages or long sleeves since it seems to make people uncomfortable. At least that's the reason she gives when people ask; more likely it's because she has a hard time with extreme temperature changes around her arm.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Shiko throws herself into everything she does, believing that if she's going to do anything at all she might as well do it as best as she possibly can. Life tends to throw things at her that she doesn't expect, and while she's become a bit of an expert at rolling with the punches, she can only handle so much before she shuts down and goes into survivability mode.

Shiko has very little use for lies, finding them a waste of time and borderline offensive, though may occasionally allow herself a white lie or a lie of omission if the person she's speaking to is genuinely better off without the real information. While generally a good person, she's more willing to venture into morally gray than most, as long as it doesn't harm the whole.

Shiko is also painfully social, hating everything about being alone, and will try her absolute best to discreetly insert herself into friendgroups. If she gets the slightest hint she's unwelcome, though, she'll retreat like a frightened bird.

HISTORY
FAMILY: Mother (Unnamed), Father (Deceased)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None, Yet
BIRTHPLACE: Minor hold beholden to Nerat Hold
HISTORY:
Shiko grew up as part of a small, insular crafting family who strangely didn't fall prey to the habit of having dozens of children to help continue their work. She and her parents were one of many groups who made and sold the ever important marked candles necessary for both telling time and for light all around Pern.

She started learning how to mark and dip candles almost as soon as she could read, and was incredibly enamored with the entire process. Something so simple was so important to so many people, and what could be better than making sure everyone had light? Even if Glows were better and safer for light, people still needed timekeeping. She probably would have continued to do make candles for the rest of her life if things hadn't 'happened,' as they're wont to do.

It was entirely an accident even if it was a stupid one. One really shouldn't actually have open flame around a lot of candles. The inside of her house went up so fast it may as well have been hit by dragonfire, and her father never made it out. They lost everything, and this was how Shiko earned her scars on her forearm. At fourteen, Shiko was old enough to set out on her own, and decided (perhaps erroneously) that it would be easier if she did so and sent marks back to her mother to help support her while she rebuilt.

She wandered the countryside and labored as parts of trade caravans, becoming enamored with Whers on the way. During this time she built up a decent reputation as a reliable workhand, and at the age of twenty, she found herself at Nerat proper at the end of a long, difficult convoy. It was there she was searched by Ista and, when opportunity arose, transferred to Semaca at the potential promise of lots of work and new things to see.

Shisk

BASICS

NAME: Shisk
BIRTHDATE Early Summer 2770
AGE: 0 as of 2770


APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 14 ft
HEIGHT: 5.25 ft
WINGSPAN: --
COLOR: Blue
HEX CODE: #38D9FD
FULL APPEARANCE:
Shisk is a rather difficult to miss blue despite the fact that he doesn't go out of his way to make his presence known. He's big, and heavily muscled for his size, though this makes his wings look proportionally a bit stubby even for a wher. His hide is a bold, bright royal blue. Under his eyes are turquoise markings that look almost like waves, with the same pattern reflected on his flanks and the outsides of his forelegs. His wings have an overlapping curved pattern in the same color, giving them the appearance of a rippling pond in the sun.


PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Shisk is on the quiet and reserved side. He prefers to observe things that are happening rather than involve himself when he believes it's unnecessary. Petty concerns are beneath him; he's better than the common rabble and doesn't want to deal with them, even when he's fairly certain that everyone else is doing everything wrong. Scheming and careful, when he wants something, he prefers to manipulate others into doing what he wants rather than doing it for himself.

Even when he does care to act, he sees himself as a mediator or advisor, rather than liking to act more directly. Some may view him as lazy for this, but he seems unconcerned by this assumption. Neither does he protest accusations of arrogance, which even he admits are somewhat founded--though he believes he truly is better than others.



Voice: Shisk's voice is on the soft side, but deep. He has rather good enunciation.

Why me?: I hope you like your reserved, seemingly-lazy wher, Shiko.
