"No enemies to call my own
No porch light on to pull me home
And where I was is beautiful
Because I was free"
- Once Upon Another Time, Sara Bareilles

BIRTHDATE: Late Fall 2745
AGE: 25 as of Early Spring 2771
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Brownrider
WING: Eclipse Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Black
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6'7", lean and relatively toned
PLAY-BY: art by me
FULL APPEARANCE:
N'phi is tall and lean, with an often overconfident stance; yet very expressive movements, with a lot of hand gestures and over-dramatic flourishes whenever she speaks. She looks androgynous, sometimes preferring to present as feminine, other times preferring to present as masculine; she experiments with her gender expression as part of her style. She often wears fashionable clothes, dressing for style rather than practicality - fashion is all part of the performance, after all! Her skintone is an olive brown, and her eyes are a chestnut brown. Her hair is mid-length, relatively long, kept in a low plait, often with small accessories and flowers in it. Usually, she sports a very warm smile, when she is not talking or singing about something.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
N'phi is expressive, poetic, and great with words. According to her, there's no shame in decorating your speech with beautiful language. She loves to talk and sing, if anything, she never stops talking. Oftentimes she keeps a journal of her discoveries, and will craft it into a poem; she is intelligent, especially when it comes to writing and wordplay, alas her wisdom and application of life skills sometimes falter. She is very, very melodramatic, and actively enjoys making a scene - whether that be being opinionated, or making every moment of life as though she is acting in a play. It's never a quiet day with N'phi.

When she talks, she likes to charm, if people are comfortable - although flirting is in the roots of her personality, she does not like making people uncomfortable and will tone herself down if she is requested to, and will not flirt at all if younger people are around - she is a very responsible adult despite being somewhat unwise. In such a situation, she would rather be the comedic actor, using her words and her wit to make some funny poems rather than romantic ones. First and foremost, she loves to entertain, and will utilise her stories and songs to do so. She is a flatterer, despite being relatively inexperienced in romance, and has a lot of natural charisma. However, sometimes, she can be egocentric or vain - her self-esteem and confidence are high, but it can unfortunately come across as arrogance. She genuinely loves herself, and she's not afraid to be honest about it. Despite this, she has high empathy, and she understands people very well; because of this, she is diplomatic, and good at helping people out with their problems, moreso than her own problems. Sometimes, N'phi is way too stubborn to realise her faults, and can be overly melodramatic and does not take criticism well.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Mother: Siella
Father: Arnephin
Oldest brother: Elphin
Oldest sister: Ariel
Middle sister: Phila
Youngest brother: Hiniel
Youngest sister: Siarne
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: none
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Hold
HISTORY:
N'phi was born to a large family in Fort Hold, being the youngest of six siblings. Hold life was not much of her idea of a future, but ever since she was young, she kept a journal, writing down all her thoughts and observations - and crafting them into poetry. This led into a love for songwriting and music, first picking up a musical instrument at 7 turns old - an old lute, passed down through the generations - and focusing her energy into learning how to play it; formally becoming an Apprentice Harper at age 10 at Harper Hall, not far from her home. When she was 18, she graduated to journeyman, and set off towards Telgar Weyr to continue her craft. Her family, despite being relatively distant from her due to having to juggle their affection between six children, gave her a good send-off and wished her the best.

At Telgar, she would go around, taking in everything she could see, and writing poems and music about it, becoming a travelling musician as part of her craft - not much for the pay, but more for the entertainment of others. At one point, she was offered a firelizard egg by someone who enjoyed her skill - she was shocked when a little green popped out of an egg, a very affectionate little flit, whom she often allowed to sit on her shoulder while she played her lute. After staying at Telgar for 2 turns, she was inspired to stand as a candidate, as seeing her flit hatch inspired her to want more - a dragon. When the mother laid her eggs, she waited intently - until a brown poked its head out of an egg with a smug expression on its face, not long afterwards, the dragon strode towards her, and Impressed to her. Spending time with Soloveth was soon her priority in life, but she never gave up on her passion for poetry. After graduating from weyrlinghood, they moved back to Fort Weyr - she has visited her family, since then, and welcomed her with open arms - they're all very proud of her! Aside from brief trips to the neighbouring Hold, she has mostly settled down at the Weyr in preparation to combat Thread and keep everyone safe.

Brown Soloveth
Image
Nephisiel, darling, may I have this dance?

BASICS

NAME: Soloveth
BIRTHDATE Early Winter 2765
AGE: 5 as of Early Spring 2771

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 38ft
HEIGHT: 9.5ft
WINGSPAN: 57ft
COLOR: Brown
HEX CODE: #876841
FULL APPEARANCE: For a brown, Soloveth is tiny, but he looks healthy despite lacking in muscle or fat. Most of his hide sports shades of golden brown, with stripes of a pale beige shade running across his neck, his tail, his legs and his core. The stripes are thin, and always in groups of five - and the underside of his torso is the same shade. He has patches of beige over his eyes, and the tip of his face, tail, and feet all fade into a slightly redder shade. His wings, however, on the underside, are a much warmer colour, with stripes of dark brown pointing from the edge of the wing towards the centre. The outside of his wings are patterned almost like bird wings, yet keeping the same tonal variety of colours as the body.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Soloveth is almost like a protective knight, standing with his rider to protect everyone and save Pern from the horrifying devastation of Thread, or so he puts it. Just like his rider, he speaks very poetically, with a lot of drama and smugness in his voice. He has a lot of pride, and thinks he is, to modestly put it, the best dragon ever. Not only does he wish to protect his own rider, he wants to protect everyone else too. After all, Thread doesn't discriminate! Unfortunately, despite his loyalty to his duty, he is even vainer than his rider! He is confident in himself, but, he believes himself to be right all the time. This sometimes causes a little bit of an argument between him and his rider, who are both extraordinarily stubborn, but it never lasts long - after all, they have to fight together against the common enemy (such being Thread). The two get along well, even if they clash sometimes.

In a way, Soloveth is almost like a voice of reason to N'phi - he is very wise, even if he thinks he's always right, his street smarts are high. He was hatched to protect, so, he'll do the best job he can! He also thinks he is an amazing love expert, but N'phi always makes fun of him for thinking that. He has tried to be N'phi's wingman - yes, he makes the same joke every single time about he quite literally is a 'wingman' - to very little avail, but he's getting better at giving advice in the area of relationships and love. Despite his wisdom, he has a very prominent downfall - his attention span is awful. He gets distracted by just about anything, whether it be a passing butterfly, or somebody sneezing in the distance. Oftentimes N'phi snaps him out of it, but that doesn't stop him. Lately she just lets him explore his findings - after all, it's how she discovered her passions in life, thus her dragon should do the same when all is calm and relaxed.

WHY ME?: Soloveth will be N'phi's partner in bard crime. Double the drama.

Green Temperance
Image

BASICS

NAME: Temperance
BIRTHDATE Early Spring 2764
AGE: 6 as of Early Summer 2770

APPEARANCE
FULL APPEARANCE: Temperance's hide is a shade of a fresh, bright mint green, which covers her entire body, and her wings become slightly paler at the edges. She is very smiley, and often sits up, very happy to see you.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Temperance is a sweetheart. She simply only has feelings of love, and likes to be very close to her handler. She loves to be pet! She occasionally can be shy, but once she warms up to you she is very affectionate. Sometimes, she might fall asleep on your lap, as she doesn't have a lot of energy - but she finds the most comfort in being next to people. Unfortunately, she is very lazy, and sleeps, or lays around, a lot. She doesn't really do much else.
