"Words, the false and true, have power. The right rumor can overthrow a weyrleader. A message received by the wrong Lord Holder can start a war. A careless slip of a naive girl's tongue can cost her everything. There's more than one way of winning a fight."
TW: Mentions of abuse, victim blaming

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire
NAME: Goes by Norell, full name Norelli
GENDER: Female
PRONOUNS: She/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Interested in the general idea of kissing. Reserving judgment on who she wants to kiss until she tries it.

BIRTHDATE: Late summer, 2755
AGE: 14 as of 2770
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Apprentice Harper, waiting to be a candidate

APPEARANCE
EYES: Hazel
HAIR: Brown, with a bit of a curl
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'4, slender
PLAY-BY: Jena Malone
FULL APPEARANCE: Norell is in the in-between phase between girl and woman. She has reached her adult height but hints of childish softness linger in her face and figure and she has sporadic flare-ups of teenage acne. Her features are fairly average and she isn't particularly lovely, but her looks are improved by with her-tended, shiny brown hair and her well-chosen clothing, which always perfect fits her coloring, figure and the current style, giving little hint to her personal tastes. She has dimples that come out when she smiles.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Norell is a deeply angry young woman. She's furious at the world and at herself, for all she gave away, for all that was taken from her, all the things she can never get back. And she knows- it's all her own fault. She put "coolness" over her family. She wasn't as clever as she thought was. She forsked up in a way that's unforgivable. Now, she's stuck at a foreign, enemy weyr. Everything she spent her life working to become, everyone she thought she was, is gone and there is no going back. Any letters she receives from Fort will go unopened and unanswered. She's a traitor to her weyr and she accepts that exile is the fate she deserves

But Norell is a survivor and a girl on a mission. She will find a way to bring down everyone complicit in ruining her life, especially Majima. She knows she doesn't have power yet, so she'll use what does she has. She'll plot and she'll scheme and she'll dig up as many secrets as she can find. And someday? She'll have a dragon of her own and be strong enough to bring them all down.

Norell has a good eye for people and a keen understanding of how social capital operates. Highly observant, she is quick to read the dynamics of any room although she does have her blind spots. Norell assumes everybody is using or being used by somebody else. Genuine affection tends to confuse her. She instinctively sizes up the vulnerabilities of those around her and isn't afraid to use them when necessary. Norell still isn't nice, she still isn't soft and someday...someday she still plans on being someone.

Oddly, she's picked up a recent interest in learning how to actually be a Harper. There is a different type of power in old cothold songs, sung together by families who've shared a homestead for generations or carried it across Pern to somewhere foreign and new. Her study of folksongs is one of the few things outside of candidacy and Ramala she is genuinely interested in, although she's slow to admit it.

She's also extremely bright, but rarely demonstrates it. Her test scores and homeworks will always be solidly mediocre...Although a Harper or two might notice that said mediocrity? Comes strangely fast for an "average" student who arrived at the weyr entirely illiterate. But that's the way Norell likes it. She has no interest in impressing any teachers, but even less interest in looking like the ignorant rube from a backwater cothold. She'll catch up fast and catch up well...and then shirk off as much as she can to focus on what really matters.

She's also...not very nice. Status conscious and self-centered to the core, she refuses to associate with anyone she views as a liability. She doesn't care if it upsets them or hurts their feelings or makes them cry. Norell looks out for Norell. Which means her family of losers? Out. The only one worth acknowledging is Essa, who is a bronzerider and acts normal. But the rest of them? Totally lame!

It's easy to miss exactly how smart Norell is because she masks it all beneath a whole lot of superficiality. She calls power "coolness" and liabilities "lame". She acts like the stereotypical bubble-headed popular girl. Because it's fun. And helps her fit in. And means that nobody will ever see that knife to the back coming until it's too late.

She's usually seen with at least one of her girlfriends. They're not terribly nice either and are almost all the children of riders with deep weyr roots. She doesn't hesitate to mock other weyrbrats if it helps enforce social cohesion. Her clique is her friends but they're also her allies, carefully hand-picked and brought into the fold of her slowly evolving group. They're not the types of girls who SHOULD want to be friends with the scion of a no-name cothold...but Norell has a way of making people forget where she came from. She doesn't trust adults at all, seeing them as pretty useless, and is not close with her mother, who she does at some level resent for leaving Norell to protect herself against her father.

Norell might have been born in the hold, but she's quickly lost all relics of hold custom. Because they're stupid and lame and holding her back. She's not a traditionalist, in any sense of the word, and plans on riding bronze or brown someday, because "goldriding is a cliche and she's better than that". Translation: Norell has no interest in being forced into a proscribed role but still wants power enough to ensure she is never at anybody else's mercy. Yes, Norell is a weird, vaguely unsettling child...and most people will never see it.


HISTORY
FAMILY:
Mother: Relli, garnet handler, Fort Weyr
Father: : Geronor, holder, cothold
Many, many siblings and half-siblings
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: A cothold beholden to Fort
HISTORY: People might want to blame Norell's upbringing for who she is. Norell would say those people are wrong. Yes, her father was an abusive asshole and her mother was a pushover and perennial victim. But Norell knew that before even they did. She might have been too young to put it into words...but Norell saw exactly what was going on and understood.

And when her father tried to turn that abuse on her? Norell realized he was a bully, but he also wasn't all that bright. She learned quickly that the best way to get him to leave her alone? Let him yell and scream his little heart out...And then yawn, act bored and strike back. Hard. Nobody else might have known why his wine cellar flooded. Or how the carefully stitched seam of his pants had torn. Or where that rumor had come from that Relli was having an affair with the fishmonger. But Geronor always did. Norell ensured it. He wanted to call her stupid and worthless? Fine. Hope he enjoyed the coming public humiliation. She turned typical childish pranks into a weapon and he quickly learned that it was best to leave Norell be. And she never bestirred herself to save anyone else. If they couldn't figure out how to protect themselves, they didn't deserve to benefit from her efforts. Nobody had ever come to her rescue, why should she ride to theirs?

She was only four when Essanora robbed her ex-fiance and rode away into the night. So for most of her life she came from the "bad" family. She figured out through the next few turns how to turn that to her advantage, crafting herself into a rebellious, edgy figure who was above her lame, boring neighbors. Which meant even when G'er Impressed garnet? Eh. She'd worked out what her siblings and parents couldn't- if you couldn't change things, embrace them and use them. She was going to be that girl your parents warned you about and you hung out with anyway, because what did parents know? It wasn't her favorite role to play, as she was always the outsider looking in but it was the best she could do while burdened with her family, who never seemed to think very much about her at all.

When she was ten, Norell was finally plucked from her hovel of obscurity by Essanora of all people who after running away, had actually become kind of cool. Or at least cooler than the rest of Norell's epically lame family. She didn't entirely understand why they'd left NOW of all times, when they'd been dealing with her father for turns, but she was happy they had. She was going to build a new life at the weyr, where she would no longer be the "rebel" but an accepted part of the group. And she was going to have as little as she could to do with her family, to ensure they wouldn't ruin things again.

PAMITH
Image


BASICS

NAME: Pamith
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2770
AGE: 0 as of 2770

CLUTCHING
[Whers/Dragons only]
(please remove for non-clutching dragons!)


CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 40 ft
HEIGHT: 10 ft
WINGSPAN: 62 ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #b70d29
FULL APPEARANCE: While Pamith's size is fairly average for a garnet, her coloring ensures she won't want for attention. Pamith's hide is a deep, true red. Like her sister Tamith, she has featherlike markings on her wings. Swirls and stripes of a darker red accentuate the lines of her body and the same color covers the back of her wings. Pamith has a narrow face with an almost bird-like muzzle. Her wings are also quite narrow, but luckily, it doesn't seem to hinder her ability to fly.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: For as beautiful as she looks, Pamith is not to be trifled with. She will sell out her fellows for the greater good. No price is too great, though she tells herself. Not that she does not feel guilt for these actions, but she knows Pern being whole is worth it. She has a greater view of the greater good, and she will see the world change if she has to do it herself. She can resist some compulsion, but not completely. On the surface, however, she seems rather kind, if more than a bit sly. She's smart, and she can be dangerous.

To her rider, Pamith will see greatness in them, but not too great. She has no problems telling them off, or scolding them, or even fighting with them. Maybe it will make them both better, she doesn't know. She will eventually apologize for going to far, as guilt is strong in her mind. She is happiest when in flight, and she is, at the core, a good dragon.

Voice: Pamith's voice is smooth, and on the deeper end despite being distinctly feminine.

Why me?: One good betrayer deserves another.

RAMALA
Image

BASICS

NAME: Ramala
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2766
AGE: 4 as of 2770

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Green
FULL APPEARANCE: Ramala is a pretty flit, in a feral sort of way, all deep green hide and savage looking strips of neon green. She's long for a green and slender, but not so much pretty or delicate as wiry and strong. She is usually found sitting on Norell's shoulder, watching everyone around her with unblinking eyes.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY/HISTORY: Once upon a time, a greenrider's gold firelizard lay a clutch. The greenrider gave a few eggs to her daughter, who kept one for herself and distributed the rest to her friends. One of those friends was Norell, whose egg hatched a green she named Ramala.

Norell would carry the firelizard with her everywhere, in her arms until Ramala grew old enough to sit on her shoulder. The green was a sign of her status and belonging in the weyr and a potentially useful ally. The flit would always be a bit wild and retain that feral edge, even as Norell won her loyalty with treats and training. She would learn to mostly behave so long as Norell wishes her to but if Norell let her go? She remained a fighter to the core and very good at it.
