"Let's get one thing straight: I'm not."

BIRTHDATE: Early Summer 2750

WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Green, like summer grass on a bright day

HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5’ 9”, slender
PLAY-BY: N/A, art credits go to picrew.me
FULL APPEARANCE: Adelais is a bit on the pretty side, with wavy black hair that insists on sitting in a messy pile on their head. Their eyes, green as summer grass on a bright day, are almost always gleaming in amusement or interest at someone or something. His skin is white and slightly tanned, only marred by a small mole at the lower left side of his mouth. Adelais stands a little over 5’ 9” and is quite slender and petite. Their body is bordering on skinny with little muscle mass, as the most exertion he uses daily is perhaps moving some books around, but he has begun to run in an attempt to build himself up a little more. He is also quite against appearing dirty, and takes great pains to look perfect, with flawless nails and unblemished skin. As for clothing, Adelais experimented and decided a couple years ago that he’d like to both keep circulation in his legs and appear semi-respectable for his fellow Harpers. Thus, he wears a black turtleneck shirt with respectable slacks and dress-style shoes at formal occasions in the Harperhall, and a simple flowing tank-top shirt with a pair of odd legging-like pants and his favorite lace-up, knee-high brown leather boots for casual summer wear. In the cold seasons, no one can see what Adelais wears under his thick layers of coats and scarves.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Adelais, as a whole, can be quite a handful. In general, he is snarky and sarcastic, with little to no respect for people of authority, except the Masterharper. Adelais is also well-known around his hometown as a prankster, a shameless flirt, and general menace, and is almost always up to no good. The young Harper may seem a little ill-tempered, but he’s truly just a mischievous creature that enjoys fun a bit too much. This is due to the sheltered life he had with his grandparents. Kept indoors with little to do, Adelais found his own ways to entertain himself. Said pranks are harmless, meant only to vex the target and cause a good-natured laugh, but Adelais knows how to use ‘pranks’ to protect himself if need be.

Deep down, however, Adelais is a little lost. He never truly recovered from the loss of his mother and has very few memories of her, but he holds these memories close to his heart, just like her amethyst necklace, the only physical thing he has left of her. He also requires klah every morning to function. Without at least one mug of klah, Adelais will become unbearably grouchy and unwilling to listen to anyone for the rest of the day as he suffers a headache.

Adelais loves being a Harper except for the copying work. Adelais can also get bored very quickly and easily, so it can be rather difficult to get him to pay attention to something important that he considers mind-numbing. They enjoy playing musical instruments, with strings being their favorite, and drums their least favored. Unfortunately, Adelais has an issue with his pride. If he feels his pride has been insulted, no matter how slight the offense, he will use every prank in his book to get back at them until he gets bored and moves on or his vengeance is satisfied. In addition, Adelais doesn’t like to talk about their father, and if the topic is brought up, they’ll either get closed off entirely or fly into a fit of pique, spewing hurtful words in relation to the man who sired them.

Adelais enjoys the outdoors when he can, particularly in summer. He hates going out in winter, and will make every effort to stay inside and out of the cold. Adelais has only recently begun considering Candidacy for becoming a Dragonrider, feeling he has more of a chance to Impress than to become a Journeyman Harper. They have thus begun to ‘train’: run around the walkways, do more errands and physical work for his superiors in attempts to build his strength, and attempting to curtail the amount of complaining he does. Adelais also has a fondness for sweets, and can occasionally be ‘persuaded’ to do something in exchange for a good pastry.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Unknown father (absent since before Adelais' birth)
Clara (mother, deceased, died 2756 of illness, age 27)
Grandparents (mother's parents): living in Fort Hold
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None, as of yet. PM me. ;)
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Hold
HISTORY: TW: death

Adelais was born to a lovely woman in Fort Hold, with no father to speak of. The boy was raised by his mother alone and was quite happy in their snug little house, up until her death from a wasting illness in 2756, when Adelais was about 6 Turns old. With nowhere else to go, they were placed under the care of their grandparents, the mother’s parents. At a young age (around 9 Turns), Adelais expressed an interest and talent for being a Harper, and began to Apprentice in the Fort Hold Harperhall. However, he never graduated from an Apprentice due to ‘behavioral issues’, his habit of pranking anyone and everyone, and the attitude of disrespect toward superiors he cultivated as he grew older. Adelais thinks they should have graduated by now, three years after the minimum age of graduation, and is still quite bitter over what he sees as a personal failure.

As his experiences with people grew as he learned at the Harperhall, Adelais felt less and less comfortable being defined simply by the gender he was born as. He felt freer the day he allowed himself the thought of blending himself, rather than simply remaining only male. Besides, he’d never quite fit in with other boys as he grew up, both due to his physical size in comparison to his peers and the attitude differences between them. Ever since that time, they’ve wanted to be called ‘they/them’ pronouns, but they still accept ‘he/him’, knowing it’s sometimes simpler to refer to their born gender at times. Even before the time they’d become guild with their gender, Adelais came to terms with sexuality. He had felt no spark when interacting and flirting with the girls of his Hold, but the exact opposite happened when he did the same with the boys. Thus, they’ve accepted their gayness with pride, and has voiced their pride to the world several times when prodded to do so.

When they reached adulthood, Adelais semi-moved out of his grandparents’ home, though he still visits frequently and occasionally stays the night. They have secured a room in the Harperhall to stay in, and has been continuing their training, still an Apprentice to this day. It was only recently that Adelais began to think of becoming a Candidate to the nearby Fort Weyr, as hopes of becoming a Journeyman Harper faded. As of late, when the weather and their schedule permits, they go on runs and perform other such strengthening activities in an attempt to grow fit enough to be considered for the Weyr.

Katzenjath

Ah, it has been quite a journey, hasn't it? I hope you are ready for more.
There is an entire world out there that has to be seen.



BASICS

NAME: Katzenjath
BIRTHDATE Early Spring 2772
AGE: Newborn as of Early Spring 2772

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 0 (1 per Turn)

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 36.25 ft
HEIGHT: 9.25 ft
WINGSPAN: 53.25 ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #B57980
FULL APPEARANCE:
Unlike her clutch siblings, Katzenjath is well below average in size for her color. She is a delicately built garnet with a long neck and tail and narrow wings. She moves gracefully, whether she's on the air or the ground. She isn't the strongest of garnets, but she is fast and agile and excels at flying tricks. Her hide is a dusky pink in color, without any distinguishing markings.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Katzenjath is a dragon who is very secure in who she is. She's a dreamer, a wandering soul, and always searching for something more. Maybe something more than her, she isn't sure. She is confident in every choice that she makes, without any regrets even if that decision leads to negative consequences. She changes her outlook like the weather, always learning and processing, always taking what she learns as an opportunity to improve who she is. No matter what she chooses, she's going to live it. It's a gamble and she will always play.

To her rider, Katzenjath's infectious confidence will be hard to ignore. She's the sun, the moon, and the stars all at once, always gazing to the horizon for the next journey. Were there more places to explore, she would be the first one in line to do such a thing. And who knows, maybe she'll find something. She's not without limits though. She knows when something is over the line, and she learns from the mistakes that she makes.

Voice: Katzenjath's voice is high and melodic, with a comforting sort of air that is easy to listen to.

Why Me?: Katzenjath will both tolerate his joyful nonsense and push him into shape. It'll be fine! She's only gonna be his best friend but also tell him when he's being a doof.

JINX

Image


BASICS

NAME: Jinx
BIRTHDATE Summer 2770
AGE: 1 as of Winter 2771

APPEARANCE
TYPE: Feline
FULL APPEARANCE: Jinx is nothing special in terms of color. She is simply black all over, from head to tail, in short fur. Her eyes are the standard yellowish green of most cats, with a bit more yellow than green. She is a bit smaller than a normal cat, but is just the right size for curling up in laps and small spaces.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Jinx is Adelais' true spirit animal. She is a little menace, taking delight in knocking over various trinkets, cups, and grooming products in front of her owner, much to his dismay. Other than knocking over objects, her favorite pastimes include unspooling and tangling balls of yarn, chasing fire lizards and mice, and dozing in the sunlight...in the middle of the path of people. Jinx is aloof, as most cats are wont to be, to most everyone except Adelais. Adelais knows how to pamper a cat, and Jinx enjoys his attentions. She will rarely look at a stranger for more than a moment before turning her nose up at them and leaving to find something more interesting to do.
