"Don't know what's coming next
But I got this feeling
Don't have the answers
But I'd say things are looking up"

-Looking Up, by SafteySuit

GENDER: Masculine

BIRTHDATE: Early Autumn 2755
AGE: 17 as of Early Spring 2772
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Candidate, general helping hand
WING: N/A

APPEARANCE

PLAY-BY: N/A; art credits go to picrew.me
FULL APPEARANCE: Kash is slender by nature, but being unable to access food consistently for a long time has left its mark on his body, leaving him barely over the line of 'gaunt'. He stands at 5' 11", though he may have been taller with proper growth, and has very lean muscle, barely visible. His hair is almost always a mess, since he only brushes it once a day: when he gets out of bed in the morning. About an hour into the day, Kash's gleaming black hair is all over the place in a chaos of dark waves. His eyes are bright blue, like the water of a lagoon, and always full of fun and curiosity and a yearning for something new. Kash's skin is lightly tanned and his cheekbones and the bridge of his nose dotted with freckles, as he loves the outdoors and spends every second he can romping. His legs are long, built for running, and his arms long as well, made for reaching up high for things. With his gangly legs and not perfect eyesight, Kash has a tendency to run into things, and thus has small bandages everywhere.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Kash is a very upbeat, happy, and optimistic person. He has a happy-go-lucky nature, with a keen sense of adventure and a good heart. He is always bouncing around (Kash doesn't walk like normal people, he 'bounces', or skips) and trying to elicit a good laugh from those around him with corny jokes and other silly things. Kash seems like a bottomless pit of energy, up with the sun, eager to lend a hand anywhere he's needed. Despite being quite accident-prone and known for bumping into objects and people often, he never lets the little bumps in the road get him down...much.

Kash is a very passionate person in everything he does. 'Work hard, play harder' is Kash's mantra, and it suits him. He loves food of all kinds and won't let any crumb go to waste, as he had very little growing up. He'll happily finish off any food that no one wants, even swiping burnt or otherwise unwanted food before it can be disposed of. 'It's wasteful!', he'd shriek if confronted on the matter, and is firm in his beliefs that edible food must never go to waste. He also loves to sing, though he's not that good at it. One can hear Kash's shrilling when he's in the bath, working on chores, even occasionally in his sleep!

Unfortunately, Kash has several issues. He can be quite reckless in many things, from starting a five-way fight with no adequate cause to do so, to throwing himself in front of a friend to take a terrible blow. Kash also suffers immense anxiety, as he thinks others around him simply tolerate his presence and privately think he's too bubbly to handle. It's always on Kash's mind whenever he's interacting with someone, trying not to go overboard with his naturally-occurring happiness. He also has the tendency of hoarding preserved foods in a hidden spot in his private living space, a deep-seated habit born out of the necessity of his childhood.

All in all, Kash is a good friend to have at your side. He'll defend you from any threat, real or imaginary, without hesitation. He will always do his best to make you smile, and will love you to death if you make him good food. He might have a few problems, but he doesn't let the bad days get him down in the long run. Kash loves a good adventure, and the Weyr can provide him with just that; a whole new world to explore and experience.

HISTORY
FAMILY:

Father - unknown, left early in Kash's life
Mother - alive, living in Nerat Province
Siblings - none

SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None, but open!
BIRTHPLACE: Small cothold of Nerat Province
HISTORY: TW: mention of arguing & relationship split

Kash was born to a young couple in a small fishing cothold in the jungled province of Nerat, Northern Continent. Kash remembers little of his father, due to his young age, but what he does remember isn't all sunshine and rainbows. What he remembers most is the arguments between his parents over various domestic matters, particularly how they were going to make ends meet with the addition of a young child. Eventually, the strain was too much, and Kash's father left, never to return. Kash's mother adapted, almost always managing to somehow bring food home to the table with her hard work and aid from others. Almost always. They made do, but Kash has always remembered not having much growing up, but that was OK! Kash had his mother's love, and that was enough, even if the fish Kash's mother brought were small, and the bread stale.

Due to the difficult situations mother and son found themselves in often, both learned to ration food supplies and make do on very little, despite assistance from neighbors and friends and Kash's mother's hard work as an unskilled fisher. Kash was molded from a young age to be a minimalist and never take food for granted. As soon as Kash was able to, he began working as well, trying to aid his mother and ease the strain of the hard work. Kash performed various odd jobs and errands around his cothold, and became even leaner as a result. This has continued for many years, Kash working to ease his mother's strain from working so hard.

When Kash was 15 and running a message, he happened upon a clutch of fire lizard eggs in the jungled area of his homeland. Beyond excited, he carefully packed up the eggs, profusely apologizing to the mother lizard, and brought the eggs to the cothold. The eggs were distributed, but Kash managed to keep one. After a short time, it hatched into Kash's beloved blue lizard, Skipper. Kash was ecstatic, and exorbitantly glad to have his new best friend.

After a time, however, Kash felt...restless. Even with his work and the company of his mother and Skipper, there was something missing. Then the dragon swooped in. With wanderlust plucking at his soul, Kash decided he'd throw caution to the wind (as usual) and accept a Search to Benden Weyr. However, it didn't take long for the normally upbeat man to become crestfallen and saddened. There was an oppressive air to the Weyr, stifling Kash terribly, not to mention the Benden's past actions! Finding Benden wasn't right for him, Kash applied to transfer to Semaca Weyr, to explore a new land and try his hand at a distant dream: life as a dragonrider or wherhandler.

IC Information
What type of candidate is your character: Dual

What color/s does your character want?: Any color is fine by Kash! Except maybe bronze. He feels he doesn't have the confidence needed to be a leader of any kind, and is one who'd rather follow the herd than give the directions. Still, if a bronze would want Kash, he'd love to oblige! :)
Does your character have any personality preferences or concerns?: Kash would enjoy a partner with a similar 'live life to the fullest' nature, but it isn't a must. Simply a friend to relax with would make Kash happy.
Does your character have any other preferences or concerns?: Nope.

OOC Information
If your character is a dual candidate IC, do you have a strong preference on whether they Impress dragon or wher?: No strong preference, but maybe leaning toward dragon? I can see Kash with either a wher (or two) or a dragon. Whatever you admins deem best! xD

What color(s) are you willing for your character to impress to?: Any and all.
Do you want your character to be eligible for gold?: No, thanks.
Do you have any personality preferences or concerns?: No real personality preferences or concerns, no. Maybe avoid pairing Kash with an overly gloomy dragon? I trust you admins to make good matches! :D
Do you have any other preferences or concerns?: Nope.
Why do you think these choice/s would be a good fit?: Kash will be anyone and everyone's friend for life, if he can. He is an upbeat soul, and I feel he'd pair well with a similarly upbeat dragon/wher. Or not. He can just try his best to cheer up a gloomy partner. xD

Do you have any preferences about the conditions of your character’s impression?: No preference. Just Kash Impressing is fine! Or not, then he'll roll with whers, LOL
Are you alright with your character getting hurt? What injury level is acceptable/what should be avoided?: All injuries are fine, minus any that leave any crazy scarring/limb-loss. Or death. ^^'

Is there anything you will ABSOLUTELY NOT accept?: Nope! Though I would like Kash to be able to fly, if he's paired with a dragon, as flying's been a dream of his.

Skipper

Image


BASICS

NAME: Skipper
BIRTHDATE Late Summer 2770
AGE: 2 as of Early Spring 2772

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Blue
FULL APPEARANCE: Skipper is simply dual-colored, dark blue all over except for the pale blue painting his entire underside, the tops of his wings, and the lower half of his tail.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Skipper shares several traits with his person, Kash. Skipper is bubbly, cheerful, and fun-loving, absolutely loving attention from humans. He fears most dragons and is wary around whers. He is smart enough to know that people are more likely to give tasty treats if he behaves cutely, and thus utilizes this tactic to get choice morsels of food. While he's semi-intelligent, Skipper is simply not suited to standard fire-lizard tasks such as carry messages or fetch objects. Sure, he'll happily help; it's in his nature, after all. Skipper simply has difficulty distinguishing objects and people from each other, and this often results in mix-ups. Tricks, on the other hand, are right up Skipper's alley. He is very good at aerial tricks such as cartwheels, somersaults, and other midair stunts. He loves to perform and make people laugh, and is utterly delighted whenever Kash asks him to do a trick.
