D'ark

"At the end of the day, you're on your own."

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Adopt
NAME: D'ark (correctly pronounced Duh-ark, but often pronounced Dark), born Deronark
GENDER: Male
PRONOUNS: He/him/his
ORIENTATION: M'love. Only M'love.

BIRTHDATE: Late Winter, 2744
AGE: 22 as of Fall, 2767
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Reluctant garnetrider, devoted weyrmate, bitter-about-it wingsecond
WING: Moonshot

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Platinum blond
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'0, spindly
PLAY-BY: Tom Felton
FULL APPEARANCE: D'ark is always put together. Hair combed, leathers neatly polished, skin clear of any trace of dirt or ash. He wears his shoulderknots as discreetly as he can, as if in hopes they'll be forgotten. His walk is more of a strut, seeming to speak of endless confidence, but his eyes are always darting at the shadows, in search of threats no one else can see. There's a new seriousness to his expression as if he's just waiting for the next bucket of shards to be dropped on his head.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Sometimes the cavalry comes too late and the only one you can rely on is yourself. D'ark still would like to believe in tradition. Being the expected garnetrider, led and cared for? That sounds lovely. Where does he sign up? He could be with his weyrmate, raise his kid and leave all this "saving the weyr" to someone else. But that's all in theory. He no longer believes the bronzeriders are sweeping in to make everything right. Or that they should. Because outside the world of Harper tales...people handed unlimited power do terrible things

Because D'ark is the one nobody came for. At the end of the day, he was on his own. And he has not forgotten. His trust in authority has been essentially shattered. He no longer really expects to be rescued. In other words- D'ark grew up. The petulant boy is gone. He's now a man with a family he loves, a dragon he considers his partner and a job he reluctantly tolerates.

He does not enjoy being wingsecond. He also doesn't expect anyone else to step up now. So he studies and tries his best and when certain veteran riders complain about the way he does things, he'll remind them that they had a chance to lead, were all but begged to lead. And they said no. Given time, he will rise to the occasion but despite his childhood ambitions, D'ark will never be a man that relishes power.

The one person D'ark is sure of is M'love, his wife and weyrmate. He loves her absolutely as he will any children they have. He'll be a doting father and is a devoted husband. He's also a bit of a prude, who is just as happy for all the weyr to think their relationship is entirely celibate (it isn't). Somehow, weyrborn D'ark has acquired a very holder-like sense of propriety and is easily embarrassed by any mention of what happens after dark. He's a bit of a dork who will insist for years that the stork brought his kids and that he has NO IDEA how M'love keeps getting pregnant. D'ark does not sleep with or flirt with other women, not even during Flights. And does not appreciate anyone making a pass at M'love. Weyr casualness in these matters is not for him.

D'ark was raised to be the perfect High Reaches rider. Respectful. Traditional. Efficient. He wears a sort of cool arrogance easily, making it clear he thinks himself above the rest of the rabble. He claims to be a staunch traditionalist, who believes High Reaches should return to the old ways and would defer to metallic riders- if they were PROPER leaders instead of rebel scum.

The problem is...none of that's really true. It's what he should believe, what he desperately WANTS to believe and tries to convince everyone ELSE he believes. But...he doesn't. Golre was a monster and life is better with her gone. He knows that. Even if admitting it to himself makes him feel like a traitor to his weyr and kin. It's just one of the many ways D'ark can never QUITE stack up. A perfectionist who always seems to fall short, he lives in a state of perpetual frustration, never able to become who he wants to be.

D'ark drives off most people with his general unpleasantness, despite the fact he would very badly like to have friends. He can't quite seem to figure out how to reconcile who was raised to be and what would actually make him happy. His relationship with Masreith is highly confrontational and he will never admit that she is the best part of his life and that he's happy he's hers. When push comes to shove, D'ark will usually do the right thing- and find a way to blame it on his dragon if anyone ever mentions it again.


HISTORY
FAMILY:
Father: L'ron of Bronze Hyperioth
Mother: Denna of Green Supleth
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: M'love of Blue Skyloth
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches Weyr
HISTORY: Deronark has always known who he was: a bronzerider's son, destined to follow in his father's footsteps. He had to be perfect. An inspiration. A future leader. Anything less would be unacceptable. The young boy worshipped his father and never doubted the truth of his words. He became a candidate as soon as he was able, as everyone had always known he would, and expected Impression to follow shortly.

Only...it didn't. Instead came war and a hostile takeover by foreign invaders. D'ark's father fled the weyr in the middle of the night. He never told D'ark where he went or why he left his son behind. He simply disappeared one day and never returned.

D'ark had nowhere else to go and no way of finding him. So he stayed and remained a candidate, even when foreigners with wrongful ideas and alien ways took over. Maybe if he Impressed a bronze and continued to live by the proper principles, someday L'ron would return for him. Or he'd be able to find him himself.

The first clutch after the takeover was highly irregular and simply wrong, sired by a green of all dragons, and D'ark was secretly grateful to be left standing. The next clutch was even worse, mothered by a GREEN and a GARNET. D'ark attended anyway out of duty, because unlike some people, HE still remembered his duty. To his shock and consternation, he was chosen by a garnet: Masreith.

She was noble and strong and beautiful, everything a dragon should be. She had also stolen every dream he ever had and cut off his last hope of finding his father again and taking his proper place in the world. He loved her. He hated her. He was confused and angry and lashing out at the world.

He graduated in spite of himself, with Masreith hauling him over the finish line. A clutch followed soon after, a reminder of how wrong their pairing was. Men might have ridden greens since the beginning of time but no man was meant to ride a CLUTCHMOTHER. And worse- a WOMAN rode the clutchsire. A woman an inch taller and a season older than him, at that! It is simply unacceptable. Unfortunately, no one gave him a vote in the matter.

UPDATES
  • Late Spring, 2767- D'ark and M'love officially become weyrmates during the conclave. They are very much in love.
  • Early Fall, 2767- D'ark is one of the few riders in his wing left uninjured and becomes wingsecond by default. M'love is badly threadscored (and pregnant) and he'd much rather be with her. It's a disaster but nobody else is willing to take over even temporarily.

MASREITH
Image
You can't leave me, D'ark. Your Masreith needs you, and we have work to do. You must stay now.

BASICS

NAME: Masreith
BIRTHDATE Late Fall, 2763
AGE: 4 as of Fall, 2767

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


CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 1

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 40ft
HEIGHT: 10.75ft
WINGSPAN: 63ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: 660033
FULL APPEARANCE:
Masreith is a beautiful multitonal garnet. Her base body color appears to be a very pale lavender. From the shoulders, stripes of bright color burst forth. Thick lines of blackberry purple and tangerine red lick over her wings, the reddish color curling to look like flames along the edges. The red continues down her tail in thick ridges as well. A sharp set of lines in a matching purple around her eyes make her look like she wearing goggles as well. Across her wings and the top of her tail, a gradient of reds and purples seems to saturate her, giving her a bright, clean look. A small symbol somewhat like a heart rests on her right thigh.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Masreith is a very strong dragon, a quality she looks for and admires in others as well. She has a strong belief in being self-reliant, and speaking your mind when you have something to say. She can be impatient with people who are petulant or childish for the sake of being so, and has no problem calling them on it. That said, she refuses to give up on people, especially who have potential, and will work them - and herself - to the bone in order to make sure things get done.

She can be extremely hot blooded, and is fiercely protective of the people she claims and considers her own. Her flights will always be full of passion and fire, but she is not a flamboyant dragon. She can be prone to outbursts on the rare occasions she gets frustrated by her inability to do something, but this fades as soon as she's figured it out. She is very determined, and is a strong believer in justice - if you break the rules or do something wrong, she'll go to all the lengths of the universe to make sure things are righted and that all are well. She has a lot of discipline, and is not afraid to push her rider when she thinks its needed.

VOICE: Masreith has a firm and serious feminine voice, with the occasional hint of exasperation and kindness.
