"I’m sorry… I-It was all my fault… I’m sorry…"

BASICS

NAME: Ning
GENDER: Male
PRONOUNS: he/him/his
ORIENTATION: Pansexual Panromantic

BIRTHDATE: Spring 2746
AGE: 25 as of Summer 2771
LOCATION: Semaca Weyr
OCCUPATION: Whiterider, Apprentice Healer
WING: Healer's Wing

APPEARANCE
EYES: Very Dark Brown, look black in most lights
HAIR: Black
HEIGHT AND BUILD: 6' and Slight
PLAY-BY: Wen Ning (Mo Dao Zu Shi)
FULL APPEARANCE:
Fine, delicate features, dark eyes, dark hair, and fairly pale skin are the first notable traits of this young man. His black hair is nearly to his waist when not kept pulled up in a high tail, despite the trouble it poses for care. He looks quite small and scrawny build-wise, but stands at an average height. Unfortunately for him, his delicate features and long hair sometimes leave him in awkward situations thanks to assumptions by others. Despite years as a candidate and then a rider and the physical labor required by both, he doesn't seem to have much in the way of body muscle or bulk, but he is stronger than he appears. Not that he ever uses it for anything.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY:
Ning is a shy and nervous young man, and suffers from a stutter that is most noticeable when under stress. He has a bad tendency to hold in his negative emotions rather than express them, not wanting to trouble anyone with his problems. It is fairly easy for someone to tell when he is feeling down, but it is hard to get him to open up about any sort of issue he may be having. Ning is sensitive and openly shows his positive emotions--even if it may embarrass him after the fact. He loves and cares strongly, and is willing to sacrifice himself without hesitation to protect others, even those who may hate him. He has a particularly strong sense of honor and loyalty. He is extremely protective of children, regardless of their parentage.

Due to severe performance anxiety, he has trouble with showing anyone any sort of skill he has, even if he is good at it. This extends to friends as well, even, something he has always found troublesome and embarrassing. He will more often than not only practice in seclusion--or at least, sometimes in a seclusion consisting of his dragon and himself.

HISTORY
FAMILY:
Quillen - Father (Alive, presumed)
Nianga - Mother (Alive, presumed)
Granny Wen - Grandmother (Deceased, age)
Uncle Four (Foren) - Uncle (Alive, presumed)
Qing - Sister (Alive)
SIGNIFICANT OTHER: N/A
BIRTHPLACE: Benden Weyr (Born), Ista territory hold (Raised)
HISTORY:
Although he did not grow up there, Ning was born to a pair of Healers in Benden Weyr. Only a few months after his birth, his family would depart from Benden. Or, at least, he and his sister would leave with his grandmother and uncle for territory outside Benden in a bid by their parents to rescue their children from the inter-Weyr conflict. Despite the difficulty of travel, the group managed to find and settle into a small Hold, realizing only after that they had crossed into Ista territory.

Other than the big move as an infant, which Ning does not recall at all, his life was fairly normal. He and his family worked very hard to maintain a positive relationship with their new Hold, which initially viewed them with some distrust due to their origin--Benden had sided with High Reaches, while Ista had sided with Fort. While this was largely an issue between Weyrs and their riders, news still traveled to Holds of the conflict via traders and had created some opposition from those who were especially loyal to their patron Weyr. Luckily, the hold's young children didn't seem particularly bothered by the affairs of adults, so young Ning had no trouble with playmates, though he did have some difficulty in making friends thanks to his stutter. It was much more prominent as a youngster, so he received some teasing for it.

Ning did well in his studies, following his sister in following their parents and learning from the local healer as soon as he was old enough. At nineteen he was Searched to Ista, where he stood for several Hatchings, all ending the same. After several Turns of disappointment, he transferred to Igen--only to Impress at his very first Hatching at Igen to Qionglinth. Despite the dragon's unusual hide, he immediately loved his new bonded and defended them from anyone who tried to look down on the white for being different.

Upon hearing about the flooding at Semaca and all the trouble the young Weyr was having, Ning made a plan to transfer there to help as soon as he could. However, Ning was stuck at Igen until his dragon matured. As soon as he and Qionglinth graduated, he would go help them.

Qionglinth

BASICS

NAME: Qionglinth
BIRTHDATE Early Fall 2768
AGE: 2 as of Summer 2771

APPEARANCE
LENGTH: 27.5ft (27' 6")
HEIGHT: 7ft
WINGSPAN: 38.16ft (38' 2")
COLOR: White
HEX CODE: #404040
FULL APPEARANCE:
As far as size goes, Qionglinth falls neatly into an average range for white dragons. Her body is small and lean but healthy, though she does have somewhat long legs, giving her a bit more of an easy springing gait when she walks. She could probably run fairly well if she tried. Her hide is deep, dark grey, fading to light grey at her wingtips and tailtip. On each foot are little white markings which appear to imitate bones, stopping at the wrist/ankle joint respectively. Her head is marked in a band around her muzzle and white spots on each eye, with a line running straight down to the corner of her mouth. Down her back are bar-like markings, stopping halfway down her tail, and each ridge is marked in small rings, while her headknobs have half-ring lines around each--they go only halfway around each headknob. Around her wrists and ankles on each limb are black bars which look almost like shackles, with chain-like markings extending up each leg as if wrapped around them.

PERSONALITY
PERSONALITY: Qionglinth has a no-nonsense attitude, sometimes going so far as to scold her rider for his timid nature. She has no problem bad-mouthing (scolding) others for reckless behaviour, especially if it puts more than one person at risk. Despite this, she may not be as much of a whistleblower as she seems--her deeply compassionate nature may prevent her from alerting an authority figure, especially if her rider is involved in some way or tries to sway her opinion.

To her rider, Qionglinth is supportive, but tough. She tries to get him to come out of his shell and to be more comfortable showing his talents to others. She will defend him without question from rude comments by others, though seems to be unbothered by comments about herself.

Voice: Qionglinth has a distinctly feminine voice.
