BASICS

NAME: H'saia (Haesaia)
GENDER: Cis female
PRONOUNS: she/her/hers
ORIENTATION: Demisexual Biromantic

BIRTHDATE: Early Spring 2729
AGE: 42 as of Late Spring 2771
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Greenrider
WING: Daylight

APPEARANCE
EYES: Blue
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 5'7" (average), with a slender yet muscular frame
PLAY-BY: merry (top), Princesawyer (bottom)
FULL APPEARANCE: Average in height for someone assigned female at birth, H'saia hardly cuts an imposing figure. Slender and narrow in form, she has a long waist and slight curves, but a feminine figure nonetheless. Despite her slightness, she is strong, with firm and defined muscles--even if they are not bulky by any means. Her hair, worn long, is often tied back by a ribbon. Straight, and such a dark brown that it appears almost black, it is well-groomed and neat at all times. Flying thread never seems to leave her looking disheveled, and in fact, this woman is often neat-looking. Her clothing is well cared for and ironed, and she doesn't tolerate a hair out of place. Her skin is tanned, and her eyes are a seafoam blue, nearly green and quite brilliant in hue.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: H'saia's personality was forged by war; she is firm and militaristic, an obedient soldier, a fighter, through and through. She is generally cold and chilly, with a disciplined outlook on life. She knows when to hold her tongue and when to act. Dutiful and hardworking, she always puts her job, her Weyr, and Pern above all else, even if that means putting her own needs or those of others aside. She tends to be self-sacrificing, viewing herself as a pawn, and being content with this worldview. It is not her job to do great things, but to support worthy leaders. She considers herself fair and impartial, a good judge of character, which often stands true, aligning with her focus on justice, law, and order. Stern, harsh, and strict, she shows respect and deference easily. She often keeps her distance from others, but despite her lack of affection, she is relatively aware of her own emotions. She can even be romantic, a fact that many are surprised by, but this requires someone to somehow get close to her. Shockingly, she is gentle to young children and fearful adults, but generally, she gives tough love and pushes others. She's hard on them, even prickly, but only to encourage growth as best she knows how. Even if they think she is awful, if she can push someone to better themselves, it will be worth it. Aloof and professional, she demands the best from others, compartmentalizing her emotions and thoughts. She separates her personal life from her professional, work-related life...and is almost always in the latter mode.

Her beliefs are undeniably rooted in the old ways, regarding uniques and garnets with suspicion and believing strongly in the color hierarchy. Order and tradition are important to her. As a result, she has no ambition--she knows her place and she follows it. It is her duty, and she takes her duty very seriously. She has no issue with greenriders teaching or advising, but formal leadership is not meant for her. She prefers the role of a follower, and has placed her support and admiration with Z'osh. She hopes that the Weyr will return to order and law, though the grounding of fighting dragons and going against the Weyr's only goldrider feel strange to her. She tries not to question it. H'saia has no gender-based bias, but believes that golds should choose women and bronzes men--and that a Weyrwoman should always be a woman, a Weyrleader always a man. She still believes that Z'osh's actions are for the greater good of the Weyr, and she supports the greatest good for the most people, even if some have to suffer or live counter to their beliefs. She has good intentions, but a mindset that is a little too utilitarian, despite rarely thinking critically about her own opinions.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
-Mother: Haeralina of Brown Kordeilth
-Father: Es'yr of Blue Diaroth (Esaianyr)
-Sister (-1): Eyina of Green Alatroth (deceased)
-Brother (-3): Ailin of Blue Linsk
-Sister (-5): Nyraera of Blue Meraenth
-Sister (-6): Weyrfolk Saialina
-Brother (-8): Ra'nyr of Brown Vernoth
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: None
BIRTHPLACE: Fort Weyr
HISTORY: Haesaia's family took great pride in its dragonrider roots. Haesaia's grandparents were both riders. Of her father's four sisters, one was a greenrider; her mother had only a brother, but he Impressed bronze. Both of her parents, of course, were riders, but they still took a strong involvement in her life. As the oldest sibling in a large family, despite being raised in the creche, she was expected to be mature, responsible, and protective over her younger siblings. She was especially close to Eyina, the sister only a turn younger than her.

Born at a Weyr in 2729, a turn before the war started, at Fort Weyr, young Haesaia did not know a world without war. Despite Golre's rule at High Reaches, and despite Haesaia hating the woman, she would never generalize her views on Golre to all golds. In 2744, at 15, Haesaia became a candidate. Barely a season after, the young candidate Impressed to a green. After her weyrlinghood ended, she took her place as a greenrider in the war. Her loyalty to Fort, despite finding it too lenient at times, was forged as a rider, when she fought for her Weyr. She was the first in her family to Impress, though her younger sister, Eyina, Impressed later--and eventually, another would Impress, while the other three would be a crafter, a wherhandler, and a weyrfolk. All siblings hoped to Impress, to fight for their weyr like their parents did.

A turn before the interval war ended--in 2754, when H'saia was 25--Eyina was killed in the war. H'saia developed significant survivor's guilt, having fought alongside her, but acknowledges there is no bringing Eyina back. When the war ended, in 2755, H'saia felt confused, without certainty about what to do. When thread began to fall in 2758, she found another sense of purpose, a way to fight and defend her weyr, even without the horrors of war. War, thread...such awful things, but it gave her a sense of something, as if she was making some kind of difference.

Friction continued with High Reaches, however, until finally, in a final attack against Fort, Golre was killed. High Reaches continued along a disorderly, chaotic path, shifting leadership and opinions like night and day. She was glad to be at Fort, even if at times it still seemed too lenient, and even if Serapheth, in 61, eventually, would be a terrifying and violent queen, in her opinion.

Female bronzeriders upset the balance. A traditional gold could no longer choose a bronze--the rightful winner of her flight--and rest assured that the rider would be a male weyrleader. Garnets, uniques...they all made her uncomfortable. At the very least, gold dragons knew better than to choose a man. In 2762, a nonbinary candidate Impressed gold, which made H'saia uncomfortable. Still...not quite a man. A man and a woman were meant to rule the Weyr, though she supposed nonbinary was...good enough.

Chaos would follow, centered both in their own Weyr, as well as other locations. Things seemed to come to a head when Nornth hatched. Her rider was nonbinary, and she was vicious. Evil. No queen worth following. When she rose for the first time, she murdered a bronze, calling for others to be murdered as well. In 2769, Diyarth caught Serapheth, and H'saia grew confident that this would cause traditionalism to rise, hopefully in a peaceful manner; Tuckal refused to truly negotiate, so H'saia stood behind the traditionalists in usurping her power. Z'osh was not perfect; but she supported him, admired him even.

Throughout the chaos, throughout the drama, H'saia remained steadfast and calm. She did as she was instructed, did what her weyr asked for. As tensions rose, she chose a more traditional stance, but never got involved. Her siblings drifted apart, over the turns, with some moving away, others simply keeping to themselves. Though the drifting apart took place a decade or two after Eyina's death, H'saia blames the distance that grew among her family on that. It was not sudden, it was not caused by anything, and it was painless; subtle, over time, and then...distance.

UPDATES

  • Fall 2771: After Temporaeth's hatching, tensions come to a head, and despite H'saia's best efforts, Z'osh is injured and sent away. She is left, once again, to adjust to the changing times.

Eurytath
Image

BASICS

NAME: Eurytath
BIRTHDATE Summer 2744
AGE: 26 turns

CLUTCHING
CLUTCHING: NO
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 3

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 28.5 feet
HEIGHT: 7.25 feet
WINGSPAN: 42.5 feet
COLOR: Green
HEX CODE: #70bc9f
FULL APPEARANCE: Eurytath is exactly average in size, be it length, height, or wingspan. She is relatively average in build as well, with a lean, muscular form. Clearly a dragon who takes her exercises seriously, but one who, like many greens, is built for speed over strength. Her coloring is a minty green at her front, fading to a darker, faded forest green. Wavy stripes of a gray-green color her hide, moving down her body like ripples. Her torso is colored by teardrop-like markings and her dark green wings boast vibrant swirling designs.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Sunny and bright, Eurytath is an absolute pleasure to know. Optimistic and kind, despite the war she had to fight in. She does not remember it, so it is out of sight and out of mind. She is an absolute ray of sunshine, pleasant to everyone she meets. Energetic and cheerful, she always greets others in a bright, friendly manner. She is nice and polite, though perhaps a bit too passionate, too loud, too vibrant.

She is pure and innocent. The horrors she has faced have not taken their toll on her, and she manages to compartmentalize well. In truth...she knows that bad things happen...but she tries very, very hard to forget them. Thankfully, dragons have awful memories, and H'saia tries not to remind her of the past. She strongly denies anything bad, even if it is right in front of her, but despite her optimism, she is sensitive and easily upset. If dragons could cry, she would most certainly be a crybaby.

While she will do whatever is necessary, she can be a bit nervous and hates confrontation. She goes along with her duties, but she is cowed by intimidation and aggression.
