Candidate Tallarook

Candidate Tallarook

-Peregrin "Pippin" Took, The Lord of the Rings

LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Taste-Tester, Candidate

EYES: Green
HAIR: Reddish Brown, ridiculously curly and wild
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5' 8", reedy and weedy, yet roughly average
PLAY-BY: Billy Boyd
All hail the mighty Tallarook! 7' tall is he, and as strong as a thousand herdbeasts!

No, Tallarook isn't 7' tall and as strong as a thousand herdbeasts, no matter how much he wishes he was. In actuality, Talla is about 5' 8" tall and of average build, but he's got a ratty air about him when it comes to his stature, like he's got plenty of growing he could be doing.

Tallarook's skin is lightly tanned, dotted with freckles over his nose and cheekbones from days of fun in the sun. His hair is a light chestnut brown color with red scrubbed in, in a pile of wild curls that refuses to be tamed. His eyes are a simple green, relatively standard in color, but alight with intelligence and plenty of mischief and a hunger for fun.

Tallarook wears whatever clothes is tossed his way, so long as he's allowed to get 'em dirty. He has a fondness for scarves and warm capes, however. Makes him feel somewhat dashing. For Gathers...who said he was going to any Gathers?

Tallarook is likely one of the most cheerful and friendly people you'll ever meet. While not the loudest, he will always try to lift the spirits of his companions with a rousing song and dance, a testament to his big and agreeable personality. Talla loves being around people, and is likely to get anxious if he's left alone. He does his best to hide his troubles, however, always tossing a grin everyone's way. Tallarook has a mischievous streak in him, enjoying playing pranks and all around having fun and sharing laughs. Additionally, the way to Talla's heart is food, and lots of it. Food is one of Talla's passions in life, and he indulges it often.

Tallarook is, unfortunately, both clumsy and forgetful. If he doesn't write something down as soon as he hears it, it'll go in one ear and out the other, his memory nearly as bad as a flit's. Don't entrust anything fragile to Talla if you want it back in one piece or otherwise unharmed. No matter how hard he tries, he seems cursed with fumble-fingers, much to his dismay. Tallarook's natural curiosity is hard to beat, and often difficult to manage. Left to his own devices, he'll wander off in search of an adventure, leaving his head in the clouds. This can get him into trouble, as he'll miss hearing some important information or other similar problems. Tallarook's habit of empathy is a fine trait, but one that troubles him, as there are many who need his help, and some who would take advantage of his feelings.

It may not be obvious, but Tallarook is actually quite brave, utterly fearless and without mercy to those who'd dare threaten those he cares about. While he's far from perfect, he does his best for everyone around. However, Tallarook fears being alone. Talla is a social creature, and thrives with the group. On a similar note, he fears abandonment by those he considers his friends. Leaving Whitwell and Merry was the hardest thing Tallrook had to do, and he often gets a pang of longing in his chest, missing home and his best friend quite terribly. Well, food will always help!

Paladin - father
Eglantine - mother
Pearl - sister
Pimpernel - sister
Pervinca - sister
Merry - best friend (open tie!)
Everyone is like Tallarook's aunt, uncle, or cousin, so he's got plenty of family besides.
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None yet, but most certainly open!
BIRTHPLACE: A cothold known as Whitwell, in a part of Nerat nicknamed "The Shire"
Tallarook was born to a loving couple in a small cothold in Nerat, among the vines and drooping trees of Nerat. With three doting older sisters and a big-hearted mother, Talla was babied and coddled for many years when he was younger. Talla, even from a very young age, loved the outdoors and found many friends, but there was one that stuck with him: Meriadoc, or as he was fondly called, Merry. The pair were near inseparable, always together and causing mischief all over.

Tallrook grew up into a fine young man, though he never took a Craft, rather lending a hand in anything he was asked to do. And Tallarook was happy, so very happy! That was when a Searchdragon from Ista came by, selecting Tallarook out of many...but not Merry. Sad for his friend and swearing to send many letters and visit, he accepted the Search, Talla packed his bags, said his farewells, and journeyed to Ista Weyr.

Tallarook happily settled in Ista, taking his lessons and working hard at chores. The people were nice...but there was something missing. Sure, he was a Candidate! What an adventure! But Ista was known and explored. Old news, to put it bluntly. Then the name "Semaca Weyr" came floating past his ears, and Talla was intrigued. Gathering more information, he came to a fast decision: he would transfer to Semacan Weyr Candidacy.

Packing his bags once more, Tallarook arranged transport with a dragon en-route for Semaca. Even if he had to scrub the floors every day for even a chance of Impression, Talla would gladly accept it. There was a whole new land to explore across the ocean!
