BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire
NAME: Novaen, goes by Nova
GENDER: Nonbinary, genderfluid but tending towards agender, amab
PRONOUNS: they/them/their
ORIENTATION: Picky Pansexual

BIRTHDATE: Winter 2742
AGE: 28 as of Winter 2770
LOCATION: High Reaches Weyr
OCCUPATION: Whiteweyrling
WING: Ground crew (Windsong) when graduate

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Red
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'7" with a slim, wiry build
PLAY-BY: art by julesintherain (coming soon)
FULL APPEARANCE: Despite being tall, with a curveless figure, Nova looks relatively androgynous. Their figure is thin and wiry, but they don't care to hide their lack of curves. If you're as attractive as them, you should flaunt it, as far as they're concerned. They like dramatic outfits, such as intricate dresses. Fashion is important, and where most of their money goes. They prefer the color blue, especially pale, in their clothing. Their hair, worn short, is ginger red in color. Pale skin that burns easily is complemented by icy blue eyes. They have a handsome jawline and are somewhat attractive--just not as beautiful as they think they are.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:As an arrogant and “cultured” individual, Nova speaks in a formal, logical manner...though they tend to throw in insults and swears as they please, at jarring contrast with the rest of their speech. Confident to an extreme, they are sure of their abilities and strengths. Determination suits them; they are ambitious, and do not give up. They are decisive, and would make a good leader in some regards. While they pride themselves on being just and fair, they prefer equality and logic over equity and ethos. They find emotions, generally speaking, illogical, pointless, and irrational, and will not take them into consideration. They think in a black-and-white manner. Either things are, or they aren’t, and there is no room for error. They work within rule and law, but excel at finding loopholes.

When motivated, they are a hard worker. Nova is meticulous and efficient, but with a utilitarian worldview. They don’t mind causing others suffering, as long as the largest number of people benefit. Sometimes, the simplest solution is the best one, and they don’t hesitate to harm others for the benefit of the many. As a result, they can be harsh, ruthless, even cruel. They are logical, perhaps too much so. That said, they think they know best, and are extremely stubborn. They tend to lie often, but will be blunt about your shortcomings. Secretive, they keep their plans to themselves, and do not trust easily. They are bitter, sarcastic, and rude, and often rather off putting to others. Disdainful of others, they are not open-minded. They are quick to place blame on others, and are rooted in their opinions. While their loyalty takes time to cultivate, they are surprisingly loyal, and make a point to always repay a debt.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
-A'raen of Bronze Allordrith (father, deceased)
-Kavon of Green Malyth (mother)
-Various half-siblings that they don't know or care about.
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: (optional)
BIRTHPLACE: High Reaches Weyr
HISTORY: Born during Golre's rule, during the war, Nova was the first and only born to A'raen and Kavon. Their father, a bronzerider and a Golre supporter, was high ranking within High Reaches. Nova, from a young age, admired him, and was proud of him. Their mother, a greenrider, was quiet and reserved, unlike their father, who was arrogant and proud. They disdained their mother, despite her loving nature, from a young age. Their parents' relationship contained a strong power differential; while A'raen was respected, Kavon was scorned, but necessary. There was love between them, despite the lack of power balance. Kavon did as A'raen said; A'raen didn't listen to Kavon's desires. Nova followed A'raen's example, scorning their mother's work.

While they have half siblings, due to A'raen's flightlust when participating in goldflights, none of these are recognized by A'raen as his children. Similarly, Kavon's other children were not given much attention--just Nova, the child of Kavon's love. When Nova was 13 or so, the war ended. At 15, they became a candidate, and took their new knots proudly. Candidates were scorned; but they were destined to Impress bronze, they were sure, so they were fine. It was around this time that they began to insist on gender neutral pronouns, and despite the traditional nature of their father, they were accepted easily by their family. As a bronzerider's child, Nova was given some degree of respect among their fellow candidates. Clearly, unlike them, they were meant for greatness. Whether it was their arrogant pride, or their heritage, most candidates seemed to fear or respect them. (Maybe they just gave the irritating candidate a wide berth, though...)

In 2761, when they were 19, their father joined in the attack against Fort. Golre attacked that summer, losing 2 full wings. Among them were A'raen and his bronze. Nova was hit hard by the news, and were determined to continue his legacy. They would Impress bronze, eventually, and support Golre. Their mother, however, was hit harder. Depressed, Kavon isolated in her room, and did not come out, not even for food. Reluctantly, despite not supporting their mother, Nova made a point to bring food to her, and at times, even keep her company. After all, they owe the woman their life, and do harbor some affection towards her.

As a staunch supporter of Golre, even as a candidate, some of the kidnapped candidates hated them. They managed to keep enough of a sense of pride and power about them to prevent themselves from being flat out attacked, but they were scorned by some groups of candidates. After all...they were kind of a jerk about it. The season after their father's death, in Autumn, however, Golre was killed in an attack on Fort Weyr, and Nova was left looking like a fool.

They made a point of acting like they were reformed, even showing respect when other color riders stepped up to lead, as disgusting as their father would find that. High Reaches, in their opinion, must be returned to its former glory. Regardless of their beliefs about hierarchy, the losses the weyr has sustained through threadfall, and the lack of a clutching gold, worry them greatly. They will stay at High Reaches, to make it the wonderful place they remember. Sometimes, however, they wonder...is their memory of High Reaches clouded by their memories of their father? Do they want to restore High Reaches, or do they just want their father back? Still, they stand for every clutch, no matter how small. A dragonrider is a dragonrider, they suppose. Even should they Impress outside of HR, they will return, and they know it.

UPDATES
  • Summer 2770: Nova Impresses Green Shock and stands for the stolen egg clutch. Their half-brother, Yvaen, attempts to repair the relationship...or initiate it in the first place.
  • Early Fall 2770: There is a gold egg, donated from Ista, but Nova Impresses to a weak and disabled white instead.
  • Late Fall 2770: Nova chooses a flightless garnet's rider (Pet're) as their mentor and continues to view their fellow weyrlings with disdain, animosity, and hurt.
  • Early Winter 2770: Nova defends Scryth when they are insulted and shows some degree of secret affection towards them.
  • Spring 2771: Nova finally accepts Scryth's existence and (secretly) cares deeply for them.

SCRYTH
Image

BASICS

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

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 23ft
HEIGHT: 5.75ft
WINGSPAN: 28ft
COLOR: White [They/them]
HEX CODE: #c8cdd6
FULL APPEARANCE: It is hard to know what Scryth would look like in a kinder world, one where their egg went uncracked and they grew into the dragon they were meant to be. In this world, Scryth is small and frail looking, with unmistakable tears in both their crippled wings. They will never fly and will always be smaller than other whites. They are weak and tire easily and will never be capable of heavy labor. Their hide is plain and unadorned, a simple light grey, with no striking markings to draw attention away from their wounded wings and fragile body.

Image

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Scryth is a quiet dragon. They are weak, but they are smart, and probably spend too long observing and reading the world around them. They can't do many things that their siblings will be able to, forever undersized and worn. They are quite smart, patterns and tactics are something they learn fairly well, though there likely won't be many chances for them to prove it. Their own worth is fairly hidden, and they feel that it is better to be quiet and be overlooked, for what value is there in someone like them?

To their rider, Scryth is equally quiet, but in need of some help. They know they will be a burden, and try to find a way to be helpful, with mixed results. They are good, very good at heart, and are someone that their siblings will go to for guidance. Perhaps one day they will be able to help guide others, to help a new generation learn and grow. Perhaps they may see value in themselves one day. That said, Scryth won't roll over and just take it. There is a fire deep within, it just must be nursed to a grand pyre.

Voice: Scryth's voice is often quiet, and unheard.

Why me?: This'll be fun.

Egg: Exiled Reader
Class: Nightwings
Inspiration: Reader from Pyre
Info: A small egg that was damaged by the trip Between. The crack has been sealed with wax, and time will tell if the egg will mature and hatch properly.
Dam: Gold Maktooth
Sire: Bronze Akaranath
Number: Hatched and Impressed 4 out of 17.
Details: Scryth struggled to hatch, and had a weak body with torn, useless wings, once they did emerge. They tried to get to Nova, but after falling a few times, they called out to their rider. Nova was horrified and ashamed of their new dragon, but eventually, they made their way towards Scryth and took care of them, as they were meant to.
Location: High Reaches Weyr

SHOCK
Image


BASICS

NAME: Shock
BIRTHDATE Late Spring 2770
AGE: 0 as of Late Spring 2770

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #0fe8a0
FULL APPEARANCE: Shock is electric; a bright and brilliant green, minty and nearly neon, with streaks on her wings that nearly reach teal. Indeed, she is a shock of color--but not a shock of form. Her features are subdued and mellow, with a soft, average sort of build and a generally unremarkable appearance...beyond her color. She is on the smaller side, but still around average for a green.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Clumsy. Shock is extremely clumsy, prone to tripping and falling, whether she is in the air or on the ground. However, she's very adorable. She seems to know it, too--playing up her cuteness factor with various adorable actions. One thing she likes to do is blep with her tongue. She also enjoys curling up on people's laps. Everything she does, she does cutely...and this seems to be her goal. She has no ulterior motives--she just wants to be cute so everyone loves her! And look, she's so cute!

blep.
