BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Adopt
NAME: Shuri
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Unsure

BIRTHDATE: Late Spring, 2751
AGE: 16 as of Fall 2767
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Apprentice smith, wingrider
WING: Nocturne

APPEARANCE
EYES: Dark brown
HAIR: Black, generally worn in braids
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'2 and slender
PLAY-BY: Letitia Wright
FULL APPEARANCE: Shuri is a small-boned, petite girl with smooth dark skin and eyes that sparkle with intelligence and mischief. She dresses in a casual manner that gives no hint to her lineage as a Lady holder's daughter and conducts herself with a sort of friendly informality. The wealth of her birth hold is hinted at only by the iron she wears- iron knives, iron studded gauntlets, iron tips to her boots, iron beads around her wrist and in her hair.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
For such a young apprentice, Shuri is quite simply brilliant. With a quick, creative mind and a steadfast devotion to her craft, she's always working on some little improvement to something or other, whether it's a cooking pot that heats faster, a more streamlined knife or a trigger for the queenriders' flamethrowers that doesn't jam quite so often. She knows more than most Pernese girls her age, having been shadowing Wakandan smiths since she was small. She loves sharing and showing off her latest advancements, especially those that will keep her brother and other riders safer as they fight.

Shuri isn't what you'd expect of a genius or a lady. She's friendly, irreverent and often snarky, a girl who knows her own mind and doesn't hesitate to voice it. She cares deeply about the world and people around her and believes in using what she has and knows to help others. Shuri is still young and can be a bit naive, trusting that the world is good and fair and that everything will be okay in the end.

She's loyal and supportive to her friends, her dragon and her family and will go out of her way to help them. There may be some complaints and sarcasm along the way, but in the end, Shuri does what she needs to do to take care of her people.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Mother: Ramonda, Lady Holder
Father: Bronzerider T'chaka, deceased
Older brother: Bronzerider T'challa
Older sister: Ramaka, heir to Wakanda
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Wakanda Hold
HISTORY: To most of the world, Wakanda is a remote mountain hold like any other, beholden to Telgar, sparsely populated and with few resources, its sole curiosity being the matriarchal customs of its leaders. What they don't know is that the small hold has a secret, carefully hidden for generations to protect their land and their people from outside exploitation. Wakanda sits on one of the richest veins of iron ore on all Pern and boasts some of its finest smiths. It is an isolated hold, unwelcoming to outsiders. Few come and few leave.

Wakanda's caution and isolationism protected it when the weyrs went to war. They grew rich off trading iron on the black market, carefully and through layers of intermediaries, and were otherwise resigned to let the holds and weyrs fight among themselves.

One of the few Wakandans who did leave was Shuri's father, T'chaka. He went to Telgar Weyr initially as a spy for his homeland, but after he Impressed, he pledged himself to the protection of all Pern. He began and continued her relationship with Shuri's mother, the Lady Ramonda, in secret and they had three children together. T'chaka continued to visit Wakanda as often as he could and was very much a part of his family, even though his primary loyalty was to his weyr.

Shuri was the youngest of them and the second daughter, with no expectations of inheritance. From an early age, she showed an interest in and an affinity for metalcraft, something which was much encouraged. She proved a bright and eager student and her teachers all knew she would be a gift to her people.

Shuri, however, wasn't content to stay put. She worried about the rest of the world and believed that Wakanda should share its knowledge and riches. It became a frequent source of argument between her, her mother and her siblings.

And then T'chaka died, killed while fighting Thread. T'challa decided to leave Wakanda for the weyr in order to honor his father's memory. Soon, he too Impressed bronze. He continued to visit their family and every time he came, he brought with him tales of the outside world.

Shuri was fascinated, especially when she heard tell of a small, upstart weyr called Semaca, strained for resources and people. She started bugging T'challa to take her there, where she might do some good for the world. And when she reached candidate age, he at last agreed and Shuri set forth- determined to make something of herself and maybe help save the world if the opportunity came about.

Luckily, she quickly found herself a good partner to help along the way. Her first Hatching ended with her knocked to the sands by a bouncing dragon. Brown Motath. Who was good and exuberant and someone she knew she could rely on. Even if he never quite knew when to turn it down.

MOTATH
Image
Image
Hey! HEY! Hey Shuri! Good thing you're still here. Been one crazy day, hasn't it?

BASICS

NAME: Motath
BIRTHDATE Late spring, 2766
AGE: 1 as of Fall, 2767

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 53 ft
HEIGHT: 14 ft
WINGSPAN: 69 ft
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: #4a381f
FULL APPEARANCE: Motath is large. And weirdly proportioned. He has a small head, a massive torso, and shrimpy back legs that somehow not only carry the weight of his bulk but also let him actually jump and lunge at things. His wings are almost comically undersized, and flying will be a challenge to him. All his power is in his front end, and he has quite the muscled frame. He looks like some weird-ass dragon. He is a pale, sandy brown all over, with darker, leathery-tan wings. His markings are a dark, chocolate brown. They go over his face like facial hair, and curl down his back. There is a big M on his hips, with two fingers on his forelegs, and little bands over his ankles.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: There is no part of Motath that is not a big, jovial sort of dragon who is friends with everyone. He even has a theme song. That he kind of wrote himself. He is a big doof, loved by everyone. He is a big damn hero and he loves it. He is aware that he is large and awkwardly proportioned and is a little self-conscious about it. Almost everyone is his best friend, but he's not a pushover. He likes camping and telling lots of outlandish stories that may or may not be a little bit embellished. He may or may not name his muscles, like Hector the Pectoral. He does not seem to feel heat or cold, and can take hits like nobody's business.

To his partner, Motath is a big, loveable friend. He is absolutely friend-shaped. If there were a book club, he would be a part of it. He likes being around people. He is always cheery, and it is genuinely difficult to get him in a bad mood. He feels pretty good about himself, confident for days and has no problems being a buddy to pretty much everyone. He is a good friend. He has no trouble standing his ground when things come down to it, and he sticks to his metaphorical guns. He is pretty level-headed, all things considered.

Voice:Motath's voice is about as bold and big as the rest of him, deep and loud.
