BASICS

NAME: C'aim
GENDER: Male
PRONOUNS: he/him/his
ORIENTATION: Heterosexual

BIRTHDATE: Summer 2736
AGE: 35 as of Fall 2771
LOCATION: Fort Weyr
OCCUPATION: Garnetrider
WING: Eclipse Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Brown
HAIR: Brown
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6' and Sturdy
PLAY-BY: Caim (Drakengard)
FULL APPEARANCE:
C'aim is a gruff-looking individual, standing at the average height for Pernese men, with a sturdy build and naturally tanned skin. He has no scars on his face and only a scattering of them on his arms and legs, but one quite terrible on his throat. This scar goes from his throat to over his shoulder, where Thread landed on him just at an angle. It is this scar, a threadscore, which has all but taken away his voice.

His eyes are simple brown, his hair a darker brown and longer, falling to his shoulders. C'aim's hair is straight, without any curl to it, and thick but soft; it seems he takes good care of it. Clothing-wise, C'aim dresses purely practically, without any care for colours or looks as long as they don't clash. That said, he opts for undyed garments on most occasions, leading to wearing a lot of beige and tan of base-made leathers and cloth.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
At first glance, C'aim appears to be a rough man with a resting angry face. The scar on his throat has rendered him nearly mute, a fact which he finds frustrating as it is too painful for him to speak anymore. He often uses his dragon as a liason rather than trying to write down what he wants to say--it's much faster and easier for him. But he isn't bitter; while he somewhat regrets the loss of his ability to speak, he still finds happiness in many aspects of his life and enjoys the company of his fellows--human or rider.

C'aim places the safety of others above his reputation, especially that of those he views as friends or family. But he lashes out at those who have wronged him in some way, as it is a held belief that they will go on to harm others and that it is up to him to stop it--to protect his life and those of the people he cares about most. He holds grudges and will seek out revenge against someone who has wronged him, from getting them in trouble to social sabotage, he's not above getting his hands dirty if he thinks the situation calls for it. This said, he means well and doesn't realize how destructive his actions can be.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Furiae - Sister, Rider of Green Itaruth, Alive (Igen)
Inu'art - Friend, Rider of Blue Regunath, Alive (Igen)
N'owe - Nephew, Rider of Blue Legnath
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Benden Weyr
HISTORY:
Born to a rider and his weyrmate, C'aim was raised with his sister for a time in the creche before his parents would transfer to Igen, bringing their children with them. It was here that he met Inu'art and befriended his future brother-in-law, learning that he had also recently transferred from Benden territory. Through a Weyr upbringing, C'aim was educated and well-cared-for, though didn't have the best relationship with his parents, especially after having been uprooted and brought to a place he knew nothing about. Luckily, he got along well with his sister and his new friend, and the trio made a promise to became Candidates as soon as each of them were old enough.

His sister and friend both Impressed before he did, as they were older than he was, and when he was fifteen, his sister twenty-one, his nephew was born. C'aim stood unsuccessfully for Hatchings for many long turns, nearly aging out entirely, before a tiny dragonet with a red hide approached him at what he knew would probably be his final hatching. Garnets were new dragons, having only just recently begun appearing--but C'aim didn't find himself caring at all. He was much too distracted by his new dragon asking him, "What makes you worthy of a bond with me?"

After the fact, he was slightly ashamed of bonding to not only a female dragon but to a mutation, but by the time he graduated from Weyrlinghood he had come to adore his dragon and her nuances. Over this time, the pair became nigh-inseparable, and luckily Igen, the Weyr at which he had Impressed, was much more open to the idea of unusual dragons.

During a particularly bad Threadfall, C'aim chose to sacrifice his own body to protect Anheruth, leaning to catch Thread that would have otherwise scored his dragon. The result of this was massive scarring along his throat and shoulder and near total loss of his voice. To this day it causes great pain to speak and he relies on writing and his dragon to communicate.

C'aim was proud of his nephew N'owe for Impressing, but not so proud of the news from High Reaches of their actions. When finally choosing to transfer to another Weyr to help, he chose Fort, fully aware that they were recently recovering from a coup in which riders like him would have been disallowed from doing... much of anything.

Anheruth

"Hmph! What makes you worthy of a bond with me?"

BASICS

NAME: Anheruth
BIRTHDATE Fall 2762
AGE: 10 as of Fall 2771

CLUTCHING

CLUTCHING: Yes
RUNS/FLIGHTS: 2

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 45ft
HEIGHT: 11.25ft
WINGSPAN: 67.5ft
COLOR: Garnet
HEX CODE: #bb483d
FULL APPEARANCE:
Anheruth is a garnet through and through. Her hide is varying shades of red, from almost salmon on her wingsails and underbelly, to a deep, rich dark red on her back. There aren't any defined markings or shapes to her hide to set her apart, however. The various shades and colours blend together like a natural gradient. Size-wize, however, is where this dragon makes a statement. For such a small hatchling, she just... didn't seem to know when to stop growing. Tipping the charts with the largest garnets, she seems to see nothing wrong or unusual about this at all. She's not quite as leggy as some, but has sizeable wings to carry her.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
This is definitely a proud, arrogant dragon. From the way she walks to the way she talks, that much is clear. She only deigns to speak to other humans on behalf of her rider, and even then her voice is haughty and she sounds as if she's doing you a favour by letting you so much as hear her speak. Distant and aloof, she's not the friendliest sort and she doesn't get along the best with others, especially anyone particularly chipper or boistrous.

Toward her rider, Anheruth is a friend and companion. She holds her rider dear to her heart, her one and only human. They had a bit of a rocky start, with C'aim being embarrassed by her and her learning to be somewhat less arrogant when it came to interaction with him. Now, however, the pair can often be found napping or sleeping together on her stone couch, despite its unfriendliness toward human bodies.

Voice: (Blood warning) She has a whispery, raspy sort of voice, but distinctly feminine.
