Plot and Scheme / Re: Wren's Plotter
« on: October 03, 2018, 11:52:14 AM »
Heya lovely,

@Phoenyx has picked up B'nyn's adoptive sister so I thought it might be fun to do a meet and greet between her and Velatha. If you're interested, I can set up the thread shortly after her and B'nyn would've started seeing one another - cause he would've been really excited to introduce them to one another.  :love: Lemme know if you think that sounds good. If it do, I can get the thread set up.  :love:

I absolutely LOVE that idea! Velathat is like, of course, I want to meet his family although she is a touch anxious about how well received she will be in all of this given that her own family was less than pleasant when it came to B'nyn even she is hopeful this will all work out better. I couldn't be worse, right?

ooooooh....

- definitely a spin-off from the EVENT thread, I think that would be the most fun! (well...mainly)
---- are you thinking a catch-up on what she learned? Or with Sohrelle trying something out?

- I absolutely see Rossed wanting to go to get together, socializing/schmoozing ahead! After all, it would be a perfect time for him to show himself to the people he wants to impress. I would also be on board with a planning one for this, preparations between them and then an open one for others to join - what do you think?

- So! PAST THREADS FTW!!
---- it would be a lot of fun to be able to show off his gentler side; at least in terms of the early stages of the courtship and also be really useful to cementing their relationship and how it works.
---- the post-Hunter attack, could be ideal to showcase his short fuse, after all, she shouldn't be running off and into trouble and making more work for him! But yeah, I agree with that as well.
---- the past bonding, I like as well. Rossed is reminded she failed to get anything better than a green but will post (huffily) and we can work through and see how they are now.

I think for NOW; the post/spin-off event one and then the past thread with the early courtship, how does that show?

@daemillia

Sionann is up for some mobbing! If/when you're ready, there is no rush of course but she would love and always thrives on new friends, not to mention liking the chance to help someone else who is just settling in as well.

Wher Details

Name:
Rossk
Pronounced:
[ Ro-OS-k
Date of Birth:
02.10.2583  9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Mine Hall
Wher Color:
Bronze
Egg Description:
As with the majority of wher eggs, Rossk was no different from many others based on that wrinkled and rather battered looking surface of dark brown with splashes of mottled cream across the surface as well. It is what originally set the egg apart.
Measurements:
Mature Length: 3.9M
Mature Height: 1.7M
 

General Appearance...

As a hatchling, Rossk was much darker than he is now, the burnt shading was closer being almost black for a short while but Rossk soon grew out of that tendency and left him with something far more appealing. He is big for a bronze and much like his handler his one for flaunting his physical strength and build. It's rather hard to miss and Rossk makes an impression that often ensures the rest of the people around him are keen to start behaving before that rusty-copper hide struts in and starts to make the point with tooth and claw. He is hulking, brutish and clearly a creature that is all about physical prowess.


Personality...

Empathetic: The connection between Rossk and Rossed is basic, even when compared to the rest of the wherhandlers, they don't find a need to stretch the limits and while Rossed has no issue with getting the point across it is often far more brutish than it should possibly need to be with a different person. Rossk, in turn, will best respond in fleeting images but there is nothing complex there, whether it might have appeared is debatable but in short, the pair is well-matched to each other in terms of their characters. There isn't much in the way of balance between the pair, it's about reflections as Rossk is just as capricious as his handler and is definitely not any sweet or fun creature. He packs a lot of cruel in there but that suits everyone just fine. 

Likes:
- Pampering; while Rossed isn't one for many displays of affection, should Rossk perform well (and with some regularity) he will spend the time on oiling and tending to the wher. This will include dressing injuries as well as bathing. All of which Rossk adores.

- Children; it would see at odds but this applies only to the offspring of his handler. They are allowed to play on him, climb over and generally manhandle him all with an apparent degree of affection and contentment from the massive wher. He doesn't seek the children out but Rossk can be moody if he's not allowed to have some time in his day with the family of his handler.

- Eating; it doesn't really matter what the good is, he loves to do it. Rossk has a voracious appetite and one of the best things is being spoiled with treats in addition to his regular meals.

Dislikes:

- Firelizards; they are small and uninteresting along with being very irritating. Rossk isn't willing to resist the urge attack any that might come close unless his handler suggests otherwise, but in the main, he is allowed to swipe or become as aggressive as he likes should the chance arrive.

- Not being allowed to work; much like Rossk he is not able to handle being inactive for long periods and this will make him harder to handle and less likely to listen without some renewed discipline but generally Rossed is a handler who is able to provide exactly and everything that he needs in respect of the physical release and exercise.

Strengths:

* AGGRESSIVE : Although he will allow the children of his handler freedom and the chance to clamber back like monkeys, this relaxed attitude does not extend to being applied against anyone else, in fact, it is quite the opposite. As Rossk is far more aggressive and ill-tempered than the majority of whers even given his color and occupation, he doesn't like or react well to anything that might be perceived as a challenge and he definitely isn't noted for being patient or willing to hold back, not even a little bit.

* CONFIDENT : There is no situation in which he could find himself that Rossk wouldn't be entirely sure of himself, his handler and what to do next. He likes the routine of their lives, the challenge of a fight and above all else has a certain knowledge that there is no one out there who comes close to being as capable as he is. There just isn't a comparison.

Weaknesses:

* RECKLESS : It is as much about an absence of fear as it is anything else. Rossk arrives in any situation entirely sure that he is going to be the one in charge. He might get it from his handler as much as anything else but they are a matched duo and it makes it harder for him to have the ability to step back and think about his actions before something does happen.

* STUBBORN : Once Rossk is fixed on something it is hard to change his mind, some would argue impossible and only his handler (often with brute force) is able to remind him of the fact that he is in charge and that Rossk has to obey.

Biography

Name:
Rossed
Pronounced:w
[ Row-iss-ed ]

Date of Birth:
19.09.2555 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
Nabol Hold
Spouse or Weyrmate:
Sohrelle


Your Reflection...



Appearance: That first impression is a good one, he is a solidly built man. One that gives the phrase one to walk mountains with a solid and enduring form. Rossed is the kind of individual that can often be assumed to brood - not inaccurate a lot of the time - but when he chooses to unwind and smile that means that generally there is a shift of perception as you notice the line of the jaw and the twinkle in his gray eyes, softening at that point to a pale and cool blue shading that could almost be mistaken for something warm.

Rossed has scarring on his arms and chest, nothing that stands out overmuch given that he works with the Peacekeepers and also has to handle the whers they often use. It isn't really anything he flaunts but outside of the leather worn as part of the uniform of his role, this is something he is proud of having, and he will definitely be the kind of man who will walk with more of a swagger and a skip in his step when he is taking part of that role and fulfilling his purpose. He has occasion to sneer and snarl and even bark at those beneath him (often and usually including his wife) but that doesn't mean his temper his fixed on the negative. Far from it.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: While he was a child during many of the events of that final Pass and the cascading horror that came as a result, it only reinforced the more vicious and vindictive qualities of his own nature. Rossed had to survive and being soft or easygoing was just not going to cut it at all. At least that is how he often validates himself when it comes to those still, quiet portions of the night when he cannot manage to find sleep. As much as Rossed understands that they all needed to come here, that everyone has to rely on each other, the truth is that he doesn't like it. The forced intimacy and interaction doesn't fit into his view and very traditionally minded perspective that is his own.

Response to dragon color mutations: In a single word; Abomination. It isn't right and shouldn't be encouraged and the fact that one of them flew a gold only supports his opinion that they should have been killed as soon as they hatched. It's wrong and nothing will ever change how Rossed feels about that.


Who are you...



Likes:
- Physical Activity; this doesn't always extend to anything as extreme as fighting but it definitely helps. Rossed isn't able to really manage to sit still although he does achieve this during the necessary periods required by the Peacekeepers during those periods they gather together. As part of this, it extends to sexual congress and he is more than willing to seek other women if he feels the need come upon him.

- Open Spaces; given the events of the last Pass and all that time spent enclosed and cramped with so many others this shouldn't be surprising or shocking. Although it's not always possible for him to have the time outside that he would like.

- Alcohol; when the chance to drink comes, Rossed will take it. While this doesn't manage to improve his mood it does make him feel more relaxed and that counts for something. Rossed isn't one to drink often as he doesn't want to end up lacking a suitable amount of control or coming up short in some way when it comes to his position among the Peacekeepers.

- Being Captain; while he doesn't intend to stop anytime soon, the achievement of being one of the Captains is something that remains of his proudest moments of his life and it is something he is aware will only ever be superseded by him managing to reach an even greater rank.

Dislikes:

- Anything related to dragonriders; he can tolerate them for short periods of time but ultimately he sees in them a whole lot of the wrong in the world as resting firmly on their shoulders. Not that Rossed is all that vocal in public settings. Instead, he concentrates on spending time with those who share his views and working on things from within the ranks of the Peacekeepers.

- Drugs; while he appreciates a good drink when the chance comes along he has a different view when it comes to illicit substances. Mostly because he sees it as being a means of avoiding things like duty and responsibility as well as removing anything like common sense.

- Being Denied; Rossed can still display certain childish tendencies and one of them is that he hates to be denied something. Whether it's a treat or just time off, if he has made a decision about something that he wants then he will follow it through. Denying him just makes him angry and that frustration can make him act out negatively.


Strengths:

* INTELLIGENT: Rossed considers himself to be both mature and responsible and capable of handling the duties and responsibilities which come with his title and position in life. Part of this stems from his own intellect and it's hard to miss when you have a conversation with him, as he is immediately one of the more well-spoken individuals who are present.

* AMBITIOUS : While its something that he doesn't need to flaunt, Rossed is not someone who is going to make down from an opportunity or challenge. He sees himself as the person who should be in charge and that is why he has worked hard to make sure that is exactly what happens.

* COURAGE : This is by far one of his best qualities. He is fearless in a lot of things, perfectly determined to make sure he leads the charge and therefore by example and it's why one of the few things that will rile up his anger is when someone fails to display even the smallest measure of courage and fortitude in the tasks ahead.

* DETERMINED : It might be better to describe him as being rather fixated and inflexible but as it's a positive quality when compared to some others he possesses this is the one that makes him believe that in spite of how things are at the moment (even though they are better than before), eventually, everything is going to end up being brought back to where it should be without the Holders having the riders so involved and wrapped up in their lives.

* ARROGANT : It might be better to think of this being a negative but in fact, this is all about how he is able to handle himself wiht such confidence. Rossed know he is the best.

Weaknesses:

* SLY : It doesn't really fit in either side well, sometimes it helps but often leads him into paranoid behaviors as Rossed tends to imagine that others are just as sly and therefore often cunning and dishonest as he is as well. It does mean that Rossed is the kind of man who is prepared to do whatever it takes but for those who know him best, it can create mean more headaches as he has to overcome that assessment of him.

* ENTITLED : There is little doubt in his mind that Rossed is entitled to whatever he wants, that doesn't always make him secure the best impression when dealing with others. Although, that is usually restricted to those outside of the Holders

* SEXIST & BIGOTED : At least in part due to his upbringing, Rossed has always been extremely limited and opinionated when it comes to the subject of both women and the traditional views that have previously served him and his predecessors so well. Rossed believes women serve only one real purpose, restricted to bearing and rearing children and should be therefore silent in all other matters. As well as respectfully submissive.

* NARROW-MINDED : Rossed is a man of his circumstances. He cannot change now and he doesn't want to be, this can make it difficult for him when it comes to accepting anything that is outside of what he deems to be appropriate and acceptable. It does also make him incredibly capable when it comes to dealing with others who boast the same traits.

* MOOD SWINGS : While he doesn't see the difficulty as he handles the changes in his temper either in alcohol, physical activity or sex. Often a mix of the three. While this is never allowed to affect his work, (for the moment), he aware of the lingering shadow just the same.

Describe Yourself:

* OBSERVANT: He is not one for making gross errors and he works hard to be well informed on the people around himself and their alliances and attitudes. A lot of those who find themselves on the wrong end of this, tend to dismiss him until they find out just how much he learned all about their little habits and weaknesses.

* SENSE OF HUMOR: It should never be denied that he has an incredible sense of humor though, he approaches most things with a smile, charm and a seemingly endless supply of ready and confident wit. At least in the beginning, as it is a method used to distract and undermine the swift assumptions that tend to be applied to his strong frame and Peacekeeper uniform. IT is one of the more effective tools in his arsenal.

* LOYALTY: Rossed is a man who is unfailingly loyal to those who have earned that from him. This loyalty is something that is enduring even if occasionally hard-won, he has learned not to trust too easily as it can have the habit of backfiring on him.

* STUBBORN: He is not one to be frivolous and while often stubborn enough to annoy and irritate, he is respected both because of his experience but because he will stick through the to bitter end even if that means he has to be the one who is swinging that last punch or choosing to make that final comment. Right or wrong? He will never let a matter go until it's resolved in the fashion that he desires.

* PRACTICAL: He is a practical man, not given over to casual emotion or even casual lusts. His passions such as they are consist of securing his position and remaining there against all odds. Proud and determined he will do things others deem impossible to show he has the will to succeed, particularly when the chance comes to show off to his superiors.

The Magic Touch: Rossed has a fondness for the ladies, this ranges from liaisons with women and also whores, as a result, it's possible he has other children but these affairs are handled discretely and without fanfare. In fact, Rossed will end a relationship should the woman push for anything more from him than he is prepared to give.

Tell us a story...



* 2555 - 2258, age 0-3 He was the first to arrive and some would suggest that Rossed was determined to make sure no one ever forgot that fact. He was red-faced, squalling and very little changed over the next three years, even with the birth of two younger siblings.

* 2560, age 5 Although Rossed is still too young to understand the entirety of what is going on, he is very disappointed when not one but two new arrivals take away the attention he feels is owed him from his parents. Not even the increased tension in the Hold manages to distract from his own sense of self-importance.

* 2563, age 8 While this is when he should have been looking ahead to the future, instead Rossed and his family are faced with the trauma and devastation of the fall of their home, as Nabol Hold succumbs to the fury of the Thread.

* 2564, age 9 It seems like no time at all before they are packed up again and taken from Ruatha (temporary point of safety) and brought to Fort. He should feel grateful but all that lingers is a sense of resentment at all of these changes affecting his life.

* 2565 -2567, age 10-12 Rossed has to find work where he can, helping out and even stealing when the chance comes in order to avoid the gnawing sense of hunger. His family is not nearly as badly off as others but all that does is remind Rossed that things can still somehow get worse than they are now. He mixes with other boys, some his own age, others older and it is now that he starts to fight, sometimes successfully and other times less so. It is in 2567, that a new influx of refugees arrives, putting an even greater strain on the limited resources, it adds to his own dislike of dragonriders - after all they should be protecting them from something as horrible as possible.

* 2568, age 13 With the fall of High Reaches, Rossed has to struggle to deal with more people. Individuals who don't know he should be respected, he fights more often now and wins regularly as well.

* 2569, age 14 Rossed isn't sure how he ended up with the role but along with some others, he is encouraged to help watch over and protect the others around him, mostly in making sure no one picks fights or steals from their batch of the limited supplies. It's a position that appeals to him greatly. Rossed feels like he is finally doing something useful.

* 2570, age 15 His mother dies, not that he really notices it as he has drifted further and further from his family but he returns and is suitably upset with the loss of his parent before he notices that there is a new sibling - not that it matters and he is sure the others, particularly his sisters who can handle this. At least two of whom are already married now.

* 2571, age 16 They are already overcrowded, but now Tillek is gone and so is the Fisher Halla and even High Reaches Weyr, although he cares less about the dragons or their riders. An irony as it not long after this that his twin siblings would be Searched out. Though only one would go onto Impress later on. For most of the remaining Turn he is distracted by the sickness that rises up and claims many of the people who have been squeezed far too tightly together now.

* 2573, age 18 Rossed is making an impression, he is strong, muscles and he missed the sickness to emerge unscathed by it all. It has earned him looks from some women and Rossed takes advantage of this, earning a reputation that is not always the most flattering but his position and his own easy charm mean he has little trouble in finding a way to warm his bed at night should he wish it.

* 2583, age 21 While the role of Peacekeeper is no longer as present as it once was, he holds to their traditions, following the discipline instilled by an older and former one. He sees the value in their being a force of young men keen to follow orders to maintain some kind of order in the more well-off sections. Faranth knows there is little support from the riders or the rest of the less worthy among them - and there are plenty of both. It is around now that he receives his first wher, a brown called Sedsk as he also gains instruction in training controlling the animal. Just like a true Peacekeeper and Rossed feels an increased sense of pride in this.

* 2580, age 25 Starts the second of series of affairs with some of the available, nothing serious but this lasts for just over half a Turn before she becomes too demanding and starts to make noises about marriage.

* 2581, age 25 Rossed is promoted to Captain. This is exactly what he feels is owed to him, although it is not a sentiment shared by all this will eventually lead to him being noticed and in turn noticing the young woman who would become his wife.

* 2582, age 27 He catches sight of Sohrelle with her family, she is far too young for him to be paying any kind of attention in the matter of marriage but he begins to speak with her parents about the subject, at first gently and then with far more attentiveness as his mind fixes on the idea.

* 2583, age 28 Sedsk is seriously injured and sadly ends up dying as a result of an escalation that Rossed was brought in to handle (along with others), he is disappointment but is able to gain a new egg as a result of his position and this time has a bronze, called Rossk soon afterward.

* 2584, age 29 This is the Turn he begins his true courtship of Sohrelle, at least as far as she is concerned. He is patient and caring, offering sweet gifts and tokens, albeit limited due to the lack of resources which are available at this time.

* 2585, age 30 Rossed and Sohrelle are married. It's a fairly small ceremony but not one that lacks in celebration and excitement. Far from it. This is after all what his entire goal has been since he set his sights on this woman and he feels justifiably proud at having gotten his own way.

* 2587, age 32 His son, Rossell, is born and Sohrelle is settling into her proper place as his submissive wife. She was already waiting with the list after the birthing and Rossed felt suitably pleased that she had done her duty and provided him with a son that he selected one of the first names on the list, assuming it was a favored one. This is also the end of the Pass. It seems auspicious that he should have a son born at this time.

* 2588, age 33 Rossed takes up with a young whore, nothing overt in his manner but preferring to sleep there while his son is fussing instead of with his wife. This is not the last time it will happen.

* 2589, age 34 Sohrelle finally delivers another child, a son that is named Sohred. Much like before Rossed is not around much. He provides a reason for his wife but it not the truth. Once his son ceases the constant crying he is more attentive to his duties as a husband and even father when the mood strikes him. This new arrival does not diminish his disgust at the result of the flight of the gold dragon, caught by one of the black monstrosities. It is a reminder of why no one can stand idle in these times. Although he manages to accept that he cannot make it change on his own. So, he continues to works hard on advancing and building connections among this fellow Peacekeepers.

* 2590, age 35 With the opportunity to see his wife impress a wher, he encouraged her to take advantage of it. The disappointment when she only managed to achieve a green was mollified as he settled into the instruction necessary when training a wher. Sohrelle was slow in the beginning but eventually, she managed to grasp the lessons.

* 2591, age 36 Now that seems increasingly likely that mutations are not going to be culled (as they should be), Rossed has made an increased effort to advance in the ranks of the Peacekeepers in order that he should be able to have that position of respect and authority - at least among his peers.

He rested a hand casually on the shoulder of his wher, the solid muscled weight of the animal a suitable reminder of the present and enough to make sure his mind remained focused on the matter at hand. Not that he could really afford to justify any kind of distraction. Some of the tedium of these meeting made it hard to hold his full attention, but Rosseh had his methods and this was one of the better alternatives. This way he was at least able to be sure he heard the instructions and avoiding ending up yawning. Rossed wanted his superiors to continue to think highly of him, that was the best way to secure his continuing success and advancement.

* AMBITIOUS : While its something that he doesn't need to flaunt, Rossed is not someone who is going to make down from an opportunity or challenge. He sees himself as the person who should be in charge and that is why he has worked hard to make sure that is exactly what happens.

* COURAGE : This is by far one of his best qualities. He is fearless in a lot of things, perfectly determined to make sure he leads the charge and therefore by example and it's why one of the few things that will rile up his anger is when someone fails to display even the smallest measure of courage and fortitude in the tasks ahead.

* DETERMINED : It might be better to describe him as being rather fixated and inflexible but as it's a positive quality when compared to some others he possesses this is the one that makes him believe that in spite of how things are at the moment (even though they are better than before), eventually, everything is going to end up being brought back to where it should be without the Holders having the riders so involved and wrapped up in their lives.

* ARROGANT : It might be better to think of this being a negative but in fact, this is all about how he is able to handle himself wiht such confidence. Rossed know he is the best.

Weaknesses:

* SLY : It doesn't really fit in either side well, sometimes it helps but often leads him into paranoid behaviors as Rossed tends to imagine that others are just as sly and therefore often cunning and dishonest as he is as well. It does mean that Rossed is the kind of man who is prepared to do whatever it takes but for those who know him best, it can create mean more headaches as he has to overcome that assessment of him.

* ENTITLED : There is little doubt in his mind that Rossed is entitled to whatever he wants, that doesn't always make him secure the best impression when dealing with others. Although, that is usually restricted to those outside of the Holders

* SEXIST & BIGOTED : At least in part due to his upbringing, Rossed has always been extremely limited and opinionated when it comes to the subject of both women and the traditional views that have previously served him and his predecessors so well. Rossed believes women serve only one real purpose, restricted to bearing and rearing children and should be therefore silent in all other matters. As well as respectfully submissive.

* NARROW-MINDED : Rossed is a man of his circumstances. He cannot change now and he doesn't want to be, this can make it difficult for him when it comes to accepting anything that is outside of what he deems to be appropriate and acceptable. It does also make him incredibly capable when it comes to dealing with others who boast the same traits.

* MOOD SWINGS : While he doesn't see the difficulty as he handles the changes in his temper either in alcohol, physical activity or sex. Often a mix of the three. While this is never allowed to affect his work, (for the moment), he aware of the lingering shadow just the same.

Describe Yourself:

* OBSERVANT: He is not one for making gross errors and he works hard to be well informed on the people around himself and their alliances and attitudes. A lot of those who find themselves on the wrong end of this, tend to dismiss him until they find out just how much he learned all about their little habits and weaknesses.

* SENSE OF HUMOR: It should never be denied that he has an incredible sense of humor though, he approaches most things with a smile, charm and a seemingly endless supply of ready and confident wit. At least in the beginning, as it is a method used to distract and undermine the swift assumptions that tend to be applied to his strong frame and Peacekeeper uniform. IT is one of the more effective tools in his arsenal.

* LOYALTY: Rossed is a man who is unfailingly loyal to those who have earned that from him. This loyalty is something that is enduring even if occasionally hard-won, he has learned not to trust too easily as it can have the habit of backfiring on him.

* STUBBORN: He is not one to be frivolous and while often stubborn enough to annoy and irritate, he is respected both because of his experience but because he will stick through the to bitter end even if that means he has to be the one who is swinging that last punch or choosing to make that final comment. Right or wrong? He will never let a matter go until it's resolved in the fashion that he desires.

* PRACTICAL: He is a practical man, not given over to casual emotion or even casual lusts. His passions such as they are consist of securing his position and remaining there against all odds. Proud and determined he will do things others deem impossible to show he has the will to succeed, particularly when the chance comes to show off to his superiors.

The Magic Touch: Rossed has a fondness for the ladies, this ranges from liaisons with women and also whores, as a result, it's possible he has other children but these affairs are handled discretely and without fanfare. In fact, Rossed will end a relationship should the woman push for anything more from him than he is prepared to give.

Tell us a story...



* 2555 - 2258, age 0-3 He was the first to arrive and some would suggest that Rossed was determined to make sure no one ever forgot that fact. He was red-faced, squalling and very little changed over the next three years, even with the birth of two younger siblings.

* 2560, age 5 Although Rossed is still too young to understand the entirety of what is going on, he is very disappointed when not one but two new arrivals take away the attention he feels is owed him from his parents. Not even the increased tension in the Hold manages to distract from his own sense of self-importance.

* 2563, age 8 While this is when he should have been looking ahead to the future, instead Rossed and his family are faced with the trauma and devastation of the fall of their home, as Nabol Hold succumbs to the fury of the Thread.

* 2564, age 9 It seems like no time at all before they are packed up again and taken from Ruatha (temporary point of safety) and brought to Fort. He should feel grateful but all that lingers is a sense of resentment at all of these changes affecting his life.

* 2565 -2567, age 10-12 Rossed has to find work where he can, helping out and even stealing when the chance comes in order to avoid the gnawing sense of hunger. His family is not nearly as badly off as others but all that does is remind Rossed that things can still somehow get worse than they are now. He mixes with other boys, some his own age, others older and it is now that he starts to fight, sometimes successfully and other times less so. It is in 2567, that a new influx of refugees arrives, putting an even greater strain on the limited resources, it adds to his own dislike of dragonriders - after all they should be protecting them from something as horrible as possible.

* 2568, age 13 With the fall of High Reaches, Rossed has to struggle to deal with more people. Individuals who don't know he should be respected, he fights more often now and wins regularly as well.

* 2569, age 14 Rossed isn't sure how he ended up with the role but along with some others, he is encouraged to help watch over and protect the others around him, mostly in making sure no one picks fights or steals from their batch of the limited supplies. It's a position that appeals to him greatly. Rossed feels like he is finally doing something useful.

* 2570, age 15 His mother dies, not that he really notices it as he has drifted further and further from his family but he returns and is suitably upset with the loss of his parent before he notices that there is a new sibling - not that it matters and he is sure the others, particularly his sisters who can handle this. At least two of whom are already married now.

* 2571, age 16 They are already overcrowded, but now Tillek is gone and so is the Fisher Halla and even High Reaches Weyr, although he cares less about the dragons or their riders. An irony as it not long after this that his twin siblings would be Searched out. Though only one would go onto Impress later on. For most of the remaining Turn he is distracted by the sickness that rises up and claims many of the people who have been squeezed far too tightly together now.

* 2573, age 18 Rossed is making an impression, he is strong, muscles and he missed the sickness to emerge unscathed by it all. It has earned him looks from some women and Rossed takes advantage of this, earning a reputation that is not always the most flattering but his position and his own easy charm mean he has little trouble in finding a way to warm his bed at night should he wish it.

* 2583, age 21 While the role of Peacekeeper is no longer as present as it once was, he holds to their traditions, following the discipline instilled by an older and former one. He sees the value in their being a force of young men keen to follow orders to maintain some kind of order in the more well-off sections. Faranth knows there is little support from the riders or the rest of the less worthy among them - and there are plenty of both. It is around now that he receives his first wher, a brown called Sedsk as he also gains instruction in training controlling the animal. Just like a true Peacekeeper and Rossed feels an increased sense of pride in this.

* 2580, age 25 Starts the second of series of affairs with some of the available, nothing serious but this lasts for just over half a Turn before she becomes too demanding and starts to make noises about marriage.

* 2581, age 25 Rossed is promoted to Captain. This is exactly what he feels is owed to him, although it is not a sentiment shared by all this will eventually lead to him being noticed and in turn noticing the young woman who would become his wife.

* 2582, age 27 He catches sight of Sohrelle with her family, she is far too young for him to be paying any kind of attention in the matter of marriage but he begins to speak with her parents about the subject, at first gently and then with far more attentiveness as his mind fixes on the idea.

* 2583, age 28 Sedsk is seriously injured and sadly ends up dying as a result of an escalation that Rossed was brought in to handle (along with others), he is disappointment but is able to gain a new egg as a result of his position and this time has a bronze, called Rossk soon afterward.

* 2584, age 29 This is the Turn he begins his true courtship of Sohrelle, at least as far as she is concerned. He is patient and caring, offering sweet gifts and tokens, albeit limited due to the lack of resources which are available at this time.

* 2585, age 30 Rossed and Sohrelle are married. It's a fairly small ceremony but not one that lacks in celebration and excitement. Far from it. This is after all what his entire goal has been since he set his sights on this woman and he feels justifiably proud at having gotten his own way.

* 2587, age 32 His son, Rossell, is born and Sohrelle is settling into her proper place as his submissive wife. She was already waiting with the list after the birthing and Rossed felt suitably pleased that she had done her duty and provided him with a son that he selected one of the first names on the list, assuming it was a favored one. This is also the end of the Pass. It seems auspicious that he should have a son born at this time.

* 2588, age 33 Rossed takes up with a young whore, nothing overt in his manner but preferring to sleep there while his son is fussing instead of with his wife. This is not the last time it will happen.

* 2589, age 34 Sohrelle finally delivers another child, a son that is named Sohred. Much like before Rossed is not around much. He provides a reason for his wife but it not the truth. Once his son ceases the constant crying he is more attentive to his duties as a husband and even father when the mood strikes him. This new arrival does not diminish his disgust at the result of the flight of the gold dragon, caught by one of the black monstrosities. It is a reminder of why no one can stand idle in these times. Although he manages to accept that he cannot make it change on his own. So, he continues to works hard on advancing and building connections among this fellow Peacekeepers.

* 2590, age 35 With the opportunity to see his wife impress a wher, he encouraged her to take advantage of it. The disappointment when she only managed to achieve a green was mollified as he settled into the instruction necessary when training a wher. Sohrelle was slow in the beginning but eventually, she managed to grasp the lessons.

* 2591, age 36 Now that seems increasingly likely that mutations are not going to be culled (as they should be), Rossed has made an increased effort to advance in the ranks of the Peacekeepers in order that he should be able to have that position of respect and authority - at least among his peers.

He rested a hand casually on the shoulder of his wher, the solid muscled weight of the animal a suitable reminder of the present and enough to make sure his mind remained focused on the matter at hand. Not that he could really afford to justify any kind of distraction. Some of the tedium of these meeting made it hard to hold his full attention, but Rosseh had his methods and this was one of the better alternatives. This way he was at least able to be sure he heard the instructions and avoiding ending up yawning. Rossed wanted his superiors to continue to think highly of him, that was the best way to secure his continuing success and advancement.

Wher Details

Name:
Rossk
Pronounced:
[ Ro-OS-k
Date of Birth:
02.10.2583  9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Mine Hall
Wher Color:
Bronze
Egg Description:
As with the majority of wher eggs, Rossk was no different from many others based on that wrinkled and rather battered looking surface of dark brown with splashes of mottled cream across the surface as well. It is what originally set the egg apart.
Measurements:
Mature Length: 3.9M
Mature Height: 1.7M
 

General Appearance...

As a hatchling, Rossk was much darker than he is now, the burnt shading was closer being almost black for a short while but Rossk soon grew out of that tendency and left him with something far more appealing. He is big for a bronze and much like his handler his one for flaunting his physical strength and build. It's rather hard to miss and Rossk makes an impression that often ensures the rest of the people around him are keen to start behaving before that rusty-copper hide struts in and starts to make the point with tooth and claw. He is hulking, brutish and clearly a creature that is all about physical prowess.


Personality...

Empathetic: The connection between Rossk and Rossed is basic, even when compared to the rest of the wherhandlers, they don't find a need to stretch the limits and while Rossed has no issue with getting the point across it is often far more brutish than it should possibly need to be with a different person. Rossk, in turn, will best respond in fleeting images but there is nothing complex there, whether it might have appeared is debatable but in short, the pair is well-matched to each other in terms of their characters. There isn't much in the way of balance between the pair, it's about reflections as Rossk is just as capricious as his handler and is definitely not any sweet or fun creature. He packs a lot of cruel in there but that suits everyone just fine. 

Likes:
- Pampering; while Rossed isn't one for many displays of affection, should Rossk perform well (and with some regularity) he will spend the time on oiling and tending to the wher. This will include dressing injuries as well as bathing. All of which Rossk adores.

- Children; it would see at odds but this applies only to the offspring of his handler. They are allowed to play on him, climb over and generally manhandle him all with an apparent degree of affection and contentment from the massive wher. He doesn't seek the children out but Rossk can be moody if he's not allowed to have some time in his day with the family of his handler.

- Eating; it doesn't really matter what the good is, he loves to do it. Rossk has a voracious appetite and one of the best things is being spoiled with treats in addition to his regular meals.

Dislikes:

- Firelizards; they are small and uninteresting along with being very irritating. Rossk isn't willing to resist the urge attack any that might come close unless his handler suggests otherwise, but in the main, he is allowed to swipe or become as aggressive as he likes should the chance arrive.

- Not being allowed to work; much like Rossk he is not able to handle being inactive for long periods and this will make him harder to handle and less likely to listen without some renewed discipline but generally Rossed is a handler who is able to provide exactly and everything that he needs in respect of the physical release and exercise.

Strengths:

* AGGRESSIVE : Although he will allow the children of his handler freedom and the chance to clamber back like monkeys, this relaxed attitude does not extend to being applied against anyone else, in fact, it is quite the opposite. As Rossk is far more aggressive and ill-tempered than the majority of whers even given his color and occupation, he doesn't like or react well to anything that might be perceived as a challenge and he definitely isn't noted for being patient or willing to hold back, not even a little bit.

* CONFIDENT : There is no situation in which he could find himself that Rossk wouldn't be entirely sure of himself, his handler and what to do next. He likes the routine of their lives, the challenge of a fight and above all else has a certain knowledge that there is no one out there who comes close to being as capable as he is. There just isn't a comparison.

Weaknesses:

* RECKLESS : It is as much about an absence of fear as it is anything else. Rossk arrives in any situation entirely sure that he is going to be the one in charge. He might get it from his handler as much as anything else but they are a matched duo and it makes it harder for him to have the ability to step back and think about his actions before something does happen.

* STUBBORN : Once Rossk is fixed on something it is hard to change his mind, some would argue impossible and only his handler (often with brute force) is able to remind him of the fact that he is in charge and that Rossk has to obey.

I will cheerfully launch my candidate Sionann at ya! She is available for any kind of plots that you might have in mind! Anything and everything. Not to mention that I would love her to make and have some more friends.

Other than that lovely, is Velatha my weaver and Eimerra the Jr. Weywoman of Imyth (*whispers* also S'bok, you should do it!) if they might interest you at all?

Thread Ideas (Eimerre & T'veck)
- Moving in
- Cohabiting
-- these are both good

Eimerra also has children, so they can be involved if you want. She also does a few other duties around the weyr as well. But evening chats about the day, advice, as she would help him out but perhaps some help/comfort sharing for her as well. Eimerra is lonely a lot of the time as she often feels sidelined etc. Discussions about the future possibly if they get to that point/comfort.

About Velatha
She is the youngest child and also the only daughter in the family. As such it has always been used as the excuse for why she needs to be protected and/or watched over so much. The family has very strong opinions about riders and that has resulted in their attempts to make sure that their daughter remains apart from them.

Obviously, this didn't work. She has had numerous arguments and out-and-out fights on this score but Velatha has determined that B'nyn makes her happy and that moving into his weyr.

2. Chatting about extended family
3. The mess with the rider/holder business
4. Talking about the new flits
5. Thread with him struggling to understand/support  Ysmersa in her new ambition

Also I would love to get Yolata and Ellariel up and running if you're interested?

As for Yolata it is just a general shout-out for any threads you might have in mind or just want to try out possibly. Anyone let me know!

Universal Events / Closed Flight/Run [ 02.06.2590 ] Aryth's Flight
« on: April 26, 2017, 10:20:21 AM »
Aryth's Flight
02.06.2590 // 6 pm

Aryth rises for her Flight, in the late afternoon which as much as Arlais knew was happening still has her a little huffy about the whole thing. As with any other, Aryth bloods her kill and then calls out her challenge to the available males in her wing. She is a force catch to any of the Jungle Wing interested in taking the chance, while Aryth prefers bronze or brown and will in fact generally ignore the other colours as being unworthy.

Who knows if one might prove themselves truly capable? The younger and newly graduated pairs are unlikely to know that Aryth has her preferences. Basically everyone is welcome to join in, even those outside her wing if you want to join in.

Use the following to indicate your preference! :heart: Feel free to PM me, ping me on discord if you have questions or want clarification on anything!

Code: [Select]
Rider & Dragon: Their names
Mature Postings: Fade to Black/Play it out.
Aftermath: Vasalyth will be alone in her weyr, and as it’s late, she’ll want night-time company. I can do immediately after the Flight or the morning after when they head down to breakfast together.

Nealros


Your Reflection...

Appearance:
Ellariel has never managed to stand out; even as a child she was more of a small wisp of her girl almost a half-forgotten member of the family among far more vibrant and usually loud siblings that she grew up with. There is a paleness to her appearance, almost making her look weak or fragile it was certainly suggested on a few occasions that Ellariel looked more sickly then sweet.

In order to off-set her failings in a physical sense Ellariel learned how to dress to promote what she had and improve it with careful touches here and there. As she got older Ellariel would learn to pad out in certain areas as she remained universally lean and largely flat-chested. She is also rather narrow waisted, which has caused painful problems in having her children but it has at least now provided Ellariel with the chest she had always been looking to possess.

Along with those changes are also stretch marks over her stomach and breasts as well as a slight sag from being pregnant so close together but it more of a little paunch than anything too gross and Ellariel has the skills to hide it from the casual observer - at least when she is fully dressed.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe:
We cannot hide behind high walls, our hearts trembling. For that is not life. We must accept the needs and the duties of each day, and face them one at a time
She experienced the death of his mother, and the loss of cousins and even a friend or two but Ellariel was able to cope with these deaths with more calm than many others. She believes that ultimately the lost remain in her heart and while she is able to remember them, they are not truly dead. In order to properly accept abandoning her home Ellariel has told herself many things, one of which that she had no choice in the matter. Something that has been true in so many aspects of her life. Ellariel wants to concentrate on making a place here, for her and most especially for her family.

Response to dragon color mutations:
The purpose of debates is to explore issues, not end them
Ellariel is shocked that these dragons have appeared, not outraged but they seem to be direct representation of all the changes that had been happening and she is not sure how comfortable she can be as a result even if she was more certain about it all. Publicly she has the same opinions about dragon-riders as her husband and given his own thoughts on the matter Ellariel has chosen to remain steadfastly neutral or at least say nothing about her thinking.


Who are you...


Likes:
-- BEING A MOTHER ; ever since her first daughter was born Ellariel has been proud to be able to call herself a mother. She is both protective and caring towards the children, hoping more than anything to be able to provide them with a suitable role model they can live up to as they get older.
-- NEALROS BEING BUSY ; anything at all that distracts him from finding fault or a mistake with her or their children or their home. None of which makes her all that relaxed or stress free and can result in Ellariel being far more snappy in her manner as a result.
-- MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY ; she prefers to avoid confrontation and arguments. Basically anything at all that will make someone upset. In fact, Ellariel will do whatever she can to make someone happy, making a meal they love or fixing a special item - this applies most obviously to both her husband and often her extended family as well.

Dislikes:
-- HER EXTENDED FAMILY ; aside from making her well and truly nervous Ellariel is also not comfortable with their lifestyle and the affect it has had upon her husband. More than anything else she wants to break free from this world and all of the damage it can have upon a person.
-- GAMBLING ; it seems to almost be the source of a lot of her problems. Well, a lot of the reasons why Ellariel is not as happy with Nealros as she would be otherwise. He loves the thrill of it all and it is one of the things that brings him back over and over. She'd prefer it to be over and done with really.
-- WHER FIGHTS ; Ellariel doesn't like to see how the animals are hurt, the training and especially the fights most of all. She'd happily never see another wher again, not because she hates the animals but because without them Nealros wouldn't have another wher to abuse with his training.

Strengths:

* ASTUTE : she is a woman who has often been in the shadows, quiet and unobtrusive overall. It has developed her ability to become more observant of what is around her both in terms of people as well as the small details about them and their character.

* PATIENT : Ellariel learned it was far better to plan a waiting game than attempt aggression. After all, she isn't the one that anyone is going to ever imagine as being dangerous or someone they should respect. Instead she is a quiet, still voice that provides good advice and cool logic.

* WELL-MANNERED : originally raised to be well-bred and polite, that is exactly what she is. Ellariel is above all else exactly what she is supposed to be. Namely an educated (to a degree) woman who can handle the role of wife and mother as well as the social aspects of that position as well. She knows how to plan events, and organise a household.

* FAMILY-ORIENTED : for her this is the cornerstone of her whole world. Ellariel is a woman for whom family always comes first. She is generous with her time and attention and the loving way she is with her children shows how much she wants to be a good mother.

* FOCUSED : while it is possible to assume Ellariel is more flighty in her character than a woman who is capable of handling the proper sort of concentration required to complete a task - the opposite is the case. She knows how to get the work done and done well. The last thing she wants to do is make a mistake and end up being punished as a result.

Weaknesses:

* LOW SELF-ESTEEM : as much as she is a wonderful woman and could indeed by a confident one that doesn't prevent her from having internal monologues which indicate how fully she doubts in herself as being capable or able-bodied. Ellariel will always end up questioning everything she says, or does.

* TENDENCY TO LIE : while not strictly necessary Ellariel is someone for the whom the truth is very much lacking. She'll lie not because she has to or it's necessary or even appropriate but because she is used to lying - especially to cover up a new bruise or else provide a means of remaining in denial about the cruelty if her husband and his family.

* PRONE TO DEPRESSION : due to the lack of esteem that she has Ellariel often has bouts of depression, this has happened both times after the birth of her each of her children. Although it has mercifully been short lived. The main result had been a reduced appetite as well as a tendency to want to spend time in bed - not that she does.

* POOR SELF IMAGE : she'll never see herself as lovely or even all that appealing. Instead Ellariel believes that she is merely an rather fortunate woman to have ever managed to secure a husband at all. She doesn't like the way she looks and will spend hours to make sure that everything is just so.

* SELF JUDGING : all tied in with everything else, Ellariel doubts pretty much everything that she says or does, although it has now often resulted in her questioning Nealros for reassurance that she is going the right thing, the way that he wants.

Describe Yourself:

* TAKES HERSELF VERY SERIOUSLY: ----- Ellariel might have enough of a sense of humour to crack a joke when it's appropriate but she doesn't apply that to herself whatever the occasion might be; she is a serious sort of woman and as much as she will smile it is never confident.

* TENDS TO SOCIALLY ISOLATE HERSELF: ----- She is absolutely not good at making friends, and the few she does win tend to find themselves being, not ignored but otherwise not given much in the way of time and attention. Ellariel will focus much more extensively upon her family.

* SEEKS APPROVAL: ----- While this used to be from her parents, it now rests almost solely upon the shoulders of her husband. Ellariel is not quite yet constantly seeking approval but it is fairly close, fairly consistent in her need to know that it is alright and being done properly.

* EMOTIONAL: ----- Generally she is able to handle herself, at least while in public and especially in social settings. Ellariel is however not without her moments of panic and tears, not to mention fretting and even brief sparks of anger - just not very often in her case.

* RESPONSIBLE: ----- She will also do what has to be done, getting up early and making sure it is all handled and arranged exactly as it should be and most especially the way her husband wants it to be done; no matter her own personal preferences.

The Magic Touch:
Ellariel is very much a battered woman, one who has a number of psychological scars many of which appeared in her childhood and have only been encouraged and allowed to blossom even further into her adulthood. Ellariel is always going to be more fragile than most but at the same time she is also capable of a possessing a core of strength; she is still young enough to be change and grow provided she has the opportunity to do so. It has started to show itself in the subtle ways she applies her influence over her husband or tries to at least.

Tell us a story...



* 2575, 0 born, she was the fourth child for her parents and marked the arrival of a second daughter into the family. Ellariel was largely an afterthought most of the time but she was noted for being very healthy as an infant.

* 2579, 4 the last of her siblings is born. In the wake of this her mother takes sick for a prolonged period of time, putting some pressure on the family to cope. Ellariel's mother never actually fully recovers from this incident and her fragility makes it a challenge for her to handle her large family as a result of which her father invites a younger sister (unmarried) to join them.

* 2580, 5 she spends more and more time learning her lessons in how to behave and less time in play. Ellariel is not always encouraged as fully as she should, as there is some lack of support due to her mother's illness and her aunt focusing more upon her elder siblings.

* 2583, 8 Ellariel is allowed to start attending some functions in a limited fashion. Mostly an effort to make sure that she fully understands her place in the world - generally to look pretty and make comments only when absolutely necessary but otherwise to be quiet.

* 2585,10 she is told that her marriage has been arranged but isn't given any kind of real details about her future spouse but instead given more instruction in how to manage a household.

* 2587, 12 this is the year she celebrates her marriage, along with the formal move to their new home. It is an unsettling period in her life, change and adjustments affecting a lot of how she acts for a long time. Especially as she has to meet and deal with her new in-laws, who actually manage to almost completely terrify her with their loud and ribald ways - it is in the wake of the move to the island that she discovers she is pregnant for the first time.

* 2588, 13 as she starts to learn more about the man she married, Ellariel gives birth to her first child and while she becomes rather depressed afterwards makes the decision to do her utmost to affect positive influences ahead of the foulness she senses from her extended family.

* 2589, 14 she has her second child, another daughter. Once more she has a bout of increased depression afterwards but this time manages to recover slightly faster.

* 2590, 15 As this new Turn begins Ellariel is keen to see more positive happenings but seems that things are not heading in that direction. At least not yet. She instead concentrates on her children as she starts to speak more candidly to her husband - when the opportunities are there.

-----

"Yes, little one. That is the way...shall we add the spice now, hmm?" her eldest daughter Nellarie babbled in reply, only one word in three even managing to make any kind of actual sense but it was coming along and that certainly counted as a sign of how much she'd changed even in these last few months. Ellariel had never imagined how much she could love another person.

It was deeper and more true than anything she had experienced in respect of anyone else, even her husband. Although Ellariel carefully kept that knowledge to herself; there was no need to share that sentiment with anyone else. Especially as it might end up only causing her pain and certainly much more likely to be a reaction which she would hardly like or welcome at all.

No, she had learned the majority of ways necessary to make sure her husband was happy. That was always important. As she continued the cooking, watching her eldest in her secure place in their home, her ear was listening for the sounds of Rovian starting to wake up from her latest nap.

K'rez he will know about it, he isn't going to be happy...at all. Like no, no, and more no. That is pretty much one giant-arsed headache and then some!

Vestanna & Arlais both women think it is yet more proof of how generally stupid the Holders are but at least there might be some possibility of them no longer being the problem of the Weyr and that could well work out as being a rather great thing in the end.

Tircin supports the overall idea but he doesn't believe it was handled right. In fact, he isn't sure if it isn't the worse thing to do in the wake of the fighting that was happening so recently but as he is more interested in the Fisher Hall and being out on the water he'll keep the majority of his opinions to himself...for now.

Carayia worries this might cause some kind of escalating response. Other than that she doens't have an opinion on the matter overall.

Sionann doesn't really care, but hoped some good will come out of it all.

"Love is not about conquest, it is about surrender"

Carayia // Weyrling // 22


About the Character:
She is a hesitant woman when it comes to her affections. Carayia has been hurt before, emotionally harmed by the actions of a man who became cruel, domineering and with the potential for violence. It shook her psyche and left her heart in a fragile state.

Carayia isn't actually weak or naive, nor is she a virgin but the idea of a casual fling has absolutely no interest for her whatsoever. At the same time she no longer has the desire to necessarily put herself out and risk being hurt again.

For the time being Carayia distracts herself and gives her all to the red dragon she impressed. He might not the colour anyone expected and at times she retains so doubts but there is no one who could ever doubt her dedication and determination when it comes to caring for and training with Vesith. She originally trained in the smithcraft; sometimes it can result in a tendency to taciturn attitude particularly in large crowds as Carayia isn't really used to that sort of thing.

Wanted ICly:
Ideally, a rider who has more experience would be perfect. However, a relationship would naturally be on hold while her dragon continues to mature. Basically this would be a slowly maturing romance, one that develops over a lot of time. There can be an instant attraction but Carayia isn't going to be the one acting on it as she has been burned before by someone she trusted.

While a rider would suit, anyone who isn't going to have a negative bias in terms of her impression of a red - they can be neutral about it, or even moderately on the negative side as long as they can be persuaded to change their minds - and are able to understand what it is like to be a rider.

Wanted OOCly:
Should you take this up, it would be great if they could be adoptable. But there is room for negotiation.
