P'PIN

"I make my own fate."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Adopt
NAME: P'pin
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Trouble

BIRTHDATE: Early Fall 2743
AGE: 24 as of Fall 2767
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Weyrling, Apprentice Starcrafter
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Red
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'7, sturdy
PLAY-BY: Eleanor Columbus
FULL APPEARANCE: An average looking girl of ordinary height and build, Poppin dresses to blend in with the crowd. She's never much seen the point of developing a personal style and prefers to be inconspicuous. Her clothes are usually fairly simple and she never wears jewelry, as she comes from a family of modest means. She generally wears her hair in a ponytail and neither cowers nor struts, adopting an unassuming gait that gives few hints to her character.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Poppin is practical and intelligent, willing and able to do what it takes to survive. She feels little obligation to society and its mores as a whole. She does what's best for her and her friends. She's not always the most diligent of people, as if she doesn't see the point in something, she'll do the bare minimum to get it over with. She has little respect for authority figures and while she won't openly mouth off as she prefers not to get in trouble, she won't go out of her way to please them and will disobey them when she thinks she can get away with it. They don't care about her, so why should she care about them?

Poppin is actually a fairly sweet girl, to her own peer group and those she considers friends. As she sees it, they're all in the same boat and ought to stick together. The rest of Pern may be stacked against them or indifferent at best, but they're her family, sort of, and she'll do what's best for them. She's eager to make friends with people who don't think themselves above her and is quick to defend those less capable than herself. You need someone's homework to copy? Poppin's your girl. Want someone to clean extra latrines? They have drudges for that- don't they?

While she tries to protect those weaker than her, Poppin does have her blindspots. To her, certain people such as drudges are simply there. When she bends the rules, she rarely considers the trouble it will cause people outside her immediate orbit, as she's prone to myopism. Her group-currently the candidates-that's important. Everyone else? They're someone else's problem. If someone points out to her she's making trouble for others, she'll apologize and correct it, as she's not malicious so much as thoughtless. But thoughtless she most certainly can be.

Poppin is a quick and eager learner, of things both permitted and less than allowed. She can pick locks and knows a bit of basic knifework, skills learned from various friends over the turns. She's hardly an accomplished criminal, knowing just enough to get herself into trouble.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father: Popper, Holder, Fort Hold
Mother: Lollin, Holder, Fort Hold
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: Nope
BIRTHPLACE: The wilds near Fort
HISTORY: Poppin's parents' hold fared poorly in the war. She was born in the woodlands, to a group of refugees, and her earliest memories are of hiding from weyr soldiers and hunting game to survive. By the time a truce was declared, Poppin was seven turns old and had never known life inside a proper hold. When Fort Hold decided to have mercy on them and offer them sanctuary (courtesy of a few remaining connections their lord's family possessed), Poppin was already set in her ways.

She tried not to cause trouble, for her parents' sake, but it was hard. She didn't understand why all these strange adults were in charge of her and telling her to do things NOT connected to their survival. Poppin paid attention only to the lessons she found amusing and her parents apprenticed her off to the starcrafters as soon as they were able. She knew less than everyone else did to start, but she had a quick mind and caught on readily enough to be permitted to stay.

As Poppin was nearing her journeyman knots, one of the younger apprentices had a valuable necklace confiscated by a Master, as punishment for a prank of some sort. The young girl's parents were furious over the loss of their family heirloom and Poppin agreed to get it back. She broke into the master's room while he was away and cracked open his trunk. Unfortunately, she was caught by a visiting searchrider and might well have been branded- but his dragon saw potential in her and argued with the rider until he offered her a choice. Come to Fort Weyr, stand as a candidate and try to contribute something worthwhile to Pern or be turned in and risk the consequences. Poppin chose candidacy, entering Fort Weyr with the firm warning that if she caused one whiff of trouble, he'd tell everyone she was a thief.

Palath
Image
Everyone has families.

BASICS

NAME: Palath
BIRTHDATE Early Winter 2767
AGE: 0 as of 2767

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 39 ft
HEIGHT: 9.75 ft
WINGSPAN: 58.5 ft
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: #3d1407
FULL APPEARANCE: Spitfire incarnate, Palath is a stunning brown and there is no question he is Nornth's son. A lean, scrappy brown, Palath is small and wiry, and has no problems getting into fights. He is a myriad of colors, with his body a pale, stone brown and his wings a fiery copper-brown. His wings have the same spirally patterning that Nornth has, that is reflected in Haenath's coloration as well. Amber-brown colors over his face like a skull mask, and over his body in flames, bars, and diamonds. A darker, richer brown accents these, notably in little 'glove' patterns on his feet.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Fire and fury, Palath is the incarnation of 'act first, think later.' He acts on instinct, with the idea of planning things out just considered "wasting time" to him. He has a job, he wants to do it his way, even if that way is flawed. He is the type to throw himself repeatedly at a wall to see if the wall will break first. He needs to learn patience, and learn how to focus... as he is terrible at both things. He is very territorial, and frequently clashing with Haenath about how they should be doing things. While not outwardly arrogant, it runs in him, and his pride is frequently on the line. He wants to protect everyone around him, and his self-sacrifice streak is dragonlengths wide.

To his rider, Palath has problems opening up. Well, to everyone. He means well, he means so well... he's just so bad at it. He lashes out with anger and gets offended easily. The world wears on him, and wears on him badly. He's terrified of being alone. Not being left alone for a few hours, but of being abandoned, of having everyone he knows just leave him behind. And worse, he's afraid of not being strong enough to protect anyone. Palath needs a friend. Several of them.

Voice: Standoffish, Palath's voice sounds calmer than he is, but very emotional.

Why me?: Good luck.
