Arkta of Green Arktask

ARKTA
Image
"Hey, Adora~"

BASICS

RETIRE INFO: Retire (but Arktask's image can be adopted!), Adopt if Adora is in play 'cause I forgot that
NAME: Arkta
GENDER: Female (Cis)
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Has crushed on One Person Ever but doesn't accept that.

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2749
AGE: 22 as of Fall 2771
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Wher handler (Wher candidate, if relevant)
WING: Ground Crew [Dusk Squad]

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: Slender, but muscular, standing at 5'11"
PLAY-BY: Catra from She-Ra: Princesses of Power
FULL APPEARANCE: Despite her slender and feminine build, Arkta's form is clearly strong. Her muscles are firm and defined, just lean, and do not take away from the surprisingly elegant form of her body. She stands at 5'11", just above average height, but holds herself with fierce determination. Her curves are soft and subtle, but evident nonetheless. With olive skin, a splattering of freckles, and light brown eyes, she is pretty enough, but her fierce expression and contrary attitude often take away from this. She has a sharp jawline, however, with thick eyebrows, and does not look especially feminine, traditionally at least. Her hair, while a bit shaggy and messy, is worn long and mostly straight. The color, when compared to the brown of her eyes, seems darker, but in fact it is a mousy brown.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Above all else, Arkta is stubborn. If she thinks she's right--which she often does--she digs her heels in and refuses to budge. Unfortunately, she has a rebellious attitude, and dislikes following rules she doesn't agree with. She can be contrary, too--if you haven't earned her respect, she will likely make insubordinate comments and act like she's too lazy to do what you want her to do. Snide comments suit her well, and she tends towards a smoothly teasing attitude. That said, Arkta is far from calm. Fierce and full of attitude, Arkta can and will sass you. She acts like nothing bothers her, but certain things get her very worked up. Surprisingly emotional for someone who seems so unaffected at times, she struggles with controlling and hiding her emotions. Despite acting strong and tough, she seeks approval and feels hurt/abandonment strongly. She won't admit it, but she will lash out.

While Arkta is an extremely lazy individual, who dislikes putting work in, she is strongly motivated by things like revenge, spite, and hurt/anger. She's determined to meet her goals, but has no interest in helping you with yours, or doing for the Weyr. Her moral code doesn't put others first, and can be very self-serving. Her loved ones are also a priority, but forsk anyone else--they can deal with it themselves. She has surprising ambitions (usually tied to those motivations), but can lack followthrough. She did it just fine, you should reward her for what she did, rather than expect her to actually take initiative. She thinks she's great, and her arrogance around her performance is often her downfall. Arkta is quite independent, almost to a fault: she doesn't need anyone, and actively refuses help.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
-Mother: Arana [Deceased]
-Father: Misktan [Deceased]
-Raised by a guard [Mystacor of Brown Mystask] with Adora
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None, but Adora is relevant to this...
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Hold
HISTORY: Born in 2749 at Fort Hold, she was the only child born to Misktan. Arana, her mother, died in childbirth. Misktan simply disappeared when Arkta was an toddler, and Arkta, for many turns, held out hope that he might return. She was put into a foster family, but at the age of 7, the family decided they could not handle her. She was lazy, it seemed, and a problem child in many ways--she'd lash out, yell, scream...and refuse to do what was asked of her. Contrary and rebellious, she required a more rigid family life, it seemed.

A wherhandler at Fort Hold, one who was raising another girl, took her in, during the turn of 2756. She'd known Adora, and even been a friend of hers, but when the two were trained so closely together, Adora became her dearest friend. Mystacor saw some potential in both girls, but Arkta's fierceness was overshadowed by her laziness, and it soon became clear that Mystacor favored the more motivated Adora. Still, at this time, Arkta didn't have much resentment for Adora, though there was some. She grew to dislike Mystacor, but Adora was her safety, the one she could rely on, her dearest friend.

When the girls were 12, Evander became lord, and Mystacor became one of his trusted guards. Once again, Mystacor's favoritism became evident: she presented Adora as a future guard to Evander, leaving Arkta feeling like she wasn't good enough. Sure...she never tried when it came to her training, but...still, she was just as good as Adora...right? Still, both girls were loyal to Evander, but when he died a turn later, Mystacor lost her status and power. Mystacor continued to groom them, hoping to regain power through the two future guards--especially Adora. After Vellaren became the new Lord of the hold, following the plague, Adora was searched to Fort Weyr.

Arkta stood among the hopefuls, but was not found suitable. Not that she would have left home anyways--but the fact that Adora was "good enough" for dragons and she was not stung. She didn't expect Adora to accept search, to leave Arkta behind...but she did. Adora left her. Mystacor began to train Arkta to take Adora's place, while Arkta's resentment and anger grew. For the first time, she felt truly abandoned by her friend--and was, above all else, hurt. She cut ties and refused to keep in contact. Still, she couldn't help but hear, from Mystacor, about Adora's Impression, at her first clutch.

In 2767, Arkta finally was seen as suitable for a wher, according to Mystacor, at least. When she felt like Arkta was ready, she bought a wher egg for the girl, who was thrilled. Her dreams were realized, and she stepped into the role that had been prepared for Adora with surprising determination. Finally motivated, both by Arktask and by her spite/resentment, she tried to rise in power. Not for Mystacor's sake, but this time, for her own (or just to spite Adora). In 2769, at the age of 20, however, the very summer of Arktask's hatchday, Fort Hold rebelled...again. This time, the distrust of handlers drove out Arkta and Mystacor.

With nowhere else to go, Arkta and Arktask made their way to Fort Weyr. She disdained Adora, but she found herself drawn to the woman regardless. Arkta seemed to enjoy mocking her and hating her, to some degree; but really, she was just hiding the hurt she still felt. How dare Adora try to be her friend, after abandoning her without looking back? She wouldn't admit it, but she missed Adora greatly.

She has been a wherhandler at Fort Weyr for a turn, but relations with Adora have not improved, despite the strain it seems to place on Arkta.

UPDATES
  • Summer 2770: Arkta attempts to steal a wher egg. She is unsuccessful and injured, saved by Adora but given consequences by the weyr, including being unable to stand for wher clutches.
  • Late Winter 2770: Arktask accidentally runs into Arkta; they both fall, and both end up with some scratches on their right feet—Arktask's right hind foot (Mild). Matching injuries, apparently. (Threadfall)

Arktask
Image


BASICS

NAME: Arktask
BIRTHDATE Early Summer 2767
AGE: 4 as of Early Fall 2771

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: YES
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 3

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 12.5 ft
HEIGHT: 5 ft
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #3b7459
FULL APPEARANCE: Artkask is massive...for a green. She exudes power and confidence, and not just from her size; she is poised, strongly rooted in the ground, and each step is heavy and deliberate. She doesn't stomp, per se, but she does walk without care about taking up too much space. In terms of size, she is nearly at the maximum length for a green, and is certainly as tall as a green could end up.

She isn't the most handsome of whers, with an ugly face only a mother (or Arkta) could love. Not very proportionate, her eyes seem bug-like and her ridges are rough and uneven. Arktask is bulky and muscular, a bit awkward-looking despite her strange poise and control over her body. She's strong, even if she isn't the most attractive of whers. That said, her markings are in contrast with the rest of her: a gorgeous nebula of stars, as lovely as the galaxy, over a minty green that shifts between darker and lighter shades. Taken with just her hide, she is lovely--it's her shape and features that make her look a bit...unappealing.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Ambition doesn't suit a wher at Fort, much less a green, for all that matters. It doesn't stop Arktask. Arktask has her eyes set on the stars, and knows she is destined for greatness. Someday, she will rule, lead, and be in control. If someone is going to be in charge, if someone is going to boss everyone around, you bet she wants it to be her. She is a conqueror at heart, quick to assert her will over that of others. Abrasive and bossy, she comes across as a little too much of a force of nature. One thing is for certain: this wher is fierce. She does not take kindly to those of her own rank trying to boss her around...despite often doing the same.

She is Arkta's partner in all she does, and surprisingly attached to the woman. They have a strong bond, and she is willing to protect Arkta from anything--not that she needs to. She chose Arkta (or so she says, despite how whers Impress) because of Arkta's strength; Arkta can defend herself, and if she hadn't been able to, Arktask would have left ages ago. A strong warrior queen, she has no patience for the weak. As a ruthless sort of wher, she believes in eat or be eaten--if you don't try to take over and assert your will over others, they'll do so to you. She is assertive, bordering on aggressive, with a fierce attitude that balks at being told what to do. She'll do it, if necessary, but she'll grit her teeth and try to hold her tongue the whole time.

That said, she is extremely blunt. She doesn't see it as a negative thing to tell someone that they are weak and pathetic for being unable to complete something; she sees it as motivation.

IC Information
What type of candidate is your character: Wher [for dual handler]

What color/s does your character want?: She doesn't care, she just wants a second wher. Color matters less for whers, but she supposes it would be nice to get a bronze or gold, for the rank.
Does your character have any personality preferences or concerns?: She was spoiled with Arktask. She wants a strong ally, one who will help her get to the top. A warrior, someone with ambition...but also someone who listens to her better than Arktask. Also, someone who does the work for her and doesn't try to push her.
Does your character have any other preferences or concerns?: She does not want something that will be a liability or hold her back, and she also does not want something that won't listen to her. Or a wher that doesn't like her/get along with her. Also, DEFINITELY not something that she can't handle. A handful that requires her to manage or control them? NOOOOOOO. She can appreciate some chaotic evil stuff, but please, she doesn't want to actually need to put in work or feel overwhelmed. She has strong preferences, though she doesn't quite realize that a second wher might not be like Arktask.

OOC Information
If your character is a dual candidate IC, do you have a strong preference on whether they Impress dragon or wher?: Wher only, of course

What color(s) are you willing for your character to impress to?: Any, but if she gets a gold/bronze, they absolutely need to be a handful.
Do you have any personality preferences or concerns?: Actually, ANY wher should be a handful, or in some way not be what Arkta wants. See those preferences above? Only Impress her if something goes against what she wants in a major way. A violent or angry wher would also be good.
Do you have any other preferences or concerns?: I will note that an ambitious wher, despite Arkta wanting one, will be a handful to her if they actually want her to DO things.
Why do you think these choice/s would be a good fit?: Arkta needs to suffer for her hubris. Again. If she's going to get a second wher, it had better be a nightmare.

Do you have any preferences about the conditions of your character’s impression?: Nope
Are you alright with your character getting hurt? What injury level is acceptable/what should be avoided?: Just don't kill her. Otherwise, go wild.

Is there anything you will ABSOLUTELY NOT accept?: I gave a few personality options, and while I won't REFUSE a bond, ever, I'd like something that fits with my idea of what I'd like her to have. PLEASE do not give her a nice, happy bond that suits what she wants.

PRIME
Image


BASICS

NAME: Prime
BIRTHDATE Early Summer 2771
AGE: Hatchling as of Summer 2771

APPEARANCE
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #6c101c
FULL APPEARANCE: The base of her hide is a deep ruby red, but the backs of her wings are colored with hot pink of varying hues. The same color streaks her inner wing sails, as well. She is large, but cute, with a pudgy form and a short snout.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Prime is happy! So happy! For all the seriousness of her name, this firelizard is hardly the serious sort. She's clumsy, constantly tripping over her tail, and more reminiscent of a cheerful, energetic puppy than a firelizard, at times.
