Current Month
8.2591 A.R.
9th Interval



Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every OOC week. This means our story is ever evolving and Southern Winds is changing. Events for the current month are listed here, once you've registered for an account.

Our roleplay time is pretty fluid. We allow you to play anything that may have happened in the past, but not in the future, as events that may affect the entire weyr may ruin futuristic plots.

We list Flights, Clutches, and Hatchings for both Dragons and Whers here, though not for firelizards.  There are Candidate events, Weyrling classes, Holder plots, and Crafthall developments -- a little bit of something for everyone.

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Functional would best describe Shenzani's wardrobe. Functional, and fabulous. No, not together, but there are two very distinct halves in said wardrobe. One is full of tight fitting trousers and shirts, things that she doesn't mind getting dirty and can pass the hardships of a hard day's work and adventure. And then there are the gowns. Long flowing dresses of fine material that cling and show off her figure, in golds and greens and midnight blues. Many of them are hand-me-downs from her elder sisters, all now dead, which her mother passed onto her. One of the few gifts of worth from the old hag.

Whatever she's dressed in, she carries herself with a pride that only falters in Shenzenati's presence. She's not afraid of her mother, but rather frustrated that she has never proved to be good enough for her, and this grates on her sense of self worth. She's fine around other people.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Honestly, Shenzani could care less about the family that she lost. She was the 'accidental' child, growing up in their constant shadow. She hated it. Didn't hate them, per se, but she's not sorry that they're out of the way. For others, she's got a 'get over it and get on with life' attitude, and can be rather blunt in saying it. She can't stand people wallowing in self pity.

Response to dragon color mutations: She wants a black (second to wanting a gold, of course). She wants a big dragon, and other than the only black so far Impressing to a man there's nothing to say that they won't accept women too! Browns do, after all, however rare that is. She thinks S'bok has a stick up his arse, but that's besides the point. Black is an awesome colour.

Who are you...

Likes:
Being noticed - she's no attention whore, but she does hate being ignored. If you don't listen to her while she's talking, expect a smack to the face. If you're facing her when she enters the room, you'd best take note.
Dragonkin - she's grown up around whers, so they're no biggie, but she likes them. Shenzesk is a massive grumpy-pants, but there are nicer ones too. They're just misunderstood uglies. Dragons are prettier, and bigger, and they can fly, which makes them awesome also. Flitters are just adorable little bundles of fun.
Having nothing to do - being a candidate seems to suit her in that respect; there's always something that needs to be done, whether it's drudgework or cleaning dragons, she's in there. She doesn't mind getting her hands dirty, in fact she rather enjoys it. Dishwashing lacks a certain appeal, for sure, but it has to be done. She'd rather do it than eat off of dirty plates.
Funny people - she does like someone who can make her laugh. She can have a bit of a twisted sense of humour at times, but more often than not it's acceptable. Arrogant people are fun; to wind up, that is. Anyone she can trade insults and play-fight with is also onto a winner.
Men who treat her as an equal - hey yo, she can kick your ass, so don't look down on her. Ever.

Dislikes:
Sad people - Get over it already.
Sexists - who are you to say what she can and can't do? Also, don't treat her like she's fragile, she's more than capable of looking after herself thankyouverymuch.
Strong flavours - especially hot spicy food.
People who don't pull their weight.
Klah - she's never developed the taste for it. She's happy enough drinking water.


Strengths:

* Confidence : She knows she's capable, and she's not afraid to show it. If someone's not doing a good enough job in her eyes she will take over, whether that's leading a group or basket weaving. She's not perfect at everything, but she likes to believe that she's pretty good at most things. Danger doesn't scare her, certainly not the political kind - she's stared down a gold wher enough times, a human is a piece of cake.

* Resolute : Decisions do not scare her, even if they've got far reaching consequences. Once she's chosen it's hard to get her to change her mind, even if it ends up getting her in more trouble than she bargained for. Determined is certainly something you could also call her.

* Honest : Brutally so, more often than not. She wants the truth, harsh or not, and has a tendency to extend this to others who may wish for a more rosy tinted version that they just plain aren't going to get from her. She's very blunt. She can take a beating from someone else though, often using criticisms as a way to make herself stronger in the future, taking it on board as advice.

* Defence : Shenzenati made sure that all her girls were taught self-defence, and Shenzani is good at it. Very good, in fact. She's quick and she's not afraid to land a blow where it counts. She also knows how to use a man's size against him.



Weaknesses:

* Short tempered : She's got no time for people who talk shit or who talk down on her, and has a reputation for lashing out. She can take a joke, sure, but be careful to make sure she knows that you are joking with her. Ineptitude has a tendency to frustrate her to the point where she will push in and take over whatever was being done wrong.

* Vindictive : She takes revenge seriously. Any slight to herself, her friends, lovers and family will be repaid, often in triplicate. Tends to take a more physical form than a political one that is usually more her mother's style. Shenzi's more direct. You hurt her lover, she'll hurt yours, simple. Hurt her child, and... well, she's not quite that cold hearted, but she will hurt you back somehow.

* Selfish : Though generous and giving, many of her goals in life centre around herself and herself alone. She's still young and hot-headed in that sense, but as time goes by she will mellow out and learn that sometimes the needs of others have to be put before her own. For now, she is loyal to herself, and her family second, but this is set to change, and she is more than capable of loyalty to another.

* Ruthless : Prone to giving little thought to others in the pursuit of her goals, people could get hurt. Even if leading a group, she's a strong believer in the majority win. The minority will have to like it or lump it.

Describe Yourself:

* Proud: ----- She would hate to admit it, but she's her mother's daughter in this respect, she just wishes that Shenzenati would see that.

* Sassy: ----- She will flirt outrageously with guys, but has little intention if doing them the honour of taking them to bed.

* Distant: ----- She has a habit of distancing herself from a relationship with another. If she feels that it's getting too serious too quickly, she'll more than often back off. If she does fall in love with someone, it will be a bond that is slow in the making, but stronger than death itself.

* Respectful of teachers: ----- She respects those with knowledge and skill greater than her own, even her teachers who's skill she has exceeded with time. Teachers she holds in high regard, as well as anyone with the title 'Master' until such a time as they prove to be dicks to her. Authority? Not so much. If you've not got said authority through hard graft then she'll have a hard time valuing your opinion. Weyrleaders are a prime example of this. She's never understood why your dragon catching the gold should make you someone worthy of leading the Weyr.

* Family-orientated: ----- Though she doesn't particularly like her family as it stands now, if the day comes that she gets one of her own she will be utterly dedicated to them, to the point where it will likely come into conflict with other stuff in her life. She's going to have a hard time giving up any kids to the creche.

The Magic Touch: Mildly obsessed with proving herself to her mother. Because of this the old woman still has a lot of power over her, though she will vehemently deny it. Disobeying her mother is the primary reason that she's standing as a candidate... Even though it does mean losing her chance at Shenzesk.

Family...

Mother: Shenzenati. Matriarch of a long gone trading family, 11.12.2520
Father: Amenak. Holder, 19.08.2531

Siblings:
Shakita, F, 10.03.2545 (deceased)
Adelonati, M, 04.07.2550 (deceased)
Plus others of various ages, not important as deceased

Tell us a story...


* Family background Shenzenati's family have a long tradition of trading through out the Igen to Telgar region, which they've been doing for hundreds of years. The family is a bit unusual in that they're highly matriarchal, owing to a string of female-only births a couple of generations back in the family. The trend has since ended, but by that time the ideal of a female leader had been firmly set in their ways, and the one boy that had the audacity to be first born was not honoured with the position of leader as would have been his birth right in any other family. Shenzenati had many children, most of them girls, and most of whom perished to Thread, a consequence of Shenzenati's decision to continue trading in the Igen region even after Threadfalls gained intensity beyond that the dragonriders could effectively control. She still insists to this day that they were doing their duty as traders to get supplies to the outlying cot holds, despite ignoring the advice of every dragonrider in the area. The family lost everything when Igen and the lower Telgar region fell into destruction. Any power that they once had was gone, and their craft now somewhat obsolete. Shenzenati retreated with her remaining family  to Nabol, where they were forced to take up whatever tasks were open to them. Mostly they survived off of selling Shenzesk's eggs. When Nabol in turn fell, Shenzenati losing another two of her children, she and the remaining two relocated to Fort.

* 06.07.2569, 0 Shenzani was born in Fort Hold. She was an accidental pregnancy, and as such Shenzenati couldn't remember the man's name, hence Shenzani's own being very similar to her mother's. At this time she has two siblings, an older sister Shakita and an older brother Adelonati, both half-siblings from Shenzenati's husband before he died.

* 2569-2581, 0-12 Grew up very much in the shadow of her elder sister who, besides being fully grown already, was heir to the family, what little was left of it, and to Shenzesk. Being still little and still dependant on her mother, this was probably the happiest time of her life, certainly the only time she actually got praised. She didn't really understand this; she knew no different. But it was still frustrating to the young girl. The wher was a constant presence in Zani's young life, and played an instrumental part in keeping the child out of trouble playing babysitter. Zani didn't mind this; she liked Shenzesk, and she could get away with more than she could with her mother or sister around, since the wher couldn't understand everything that the human hatchling was doing.

* 2582, 13 Adelonati was killed at a wher hatching. Shenzani mourned for him, as he'd been a good older brother to her, but not for long. A month later in the same year she bought herself a pair of firelizard eggs. Her siblings both had some, from back in the good old days when their family actually traded the things and they had come cheap. They were tiny little things, neither likely to hatch anything bigger than a blue, but she cherished them for being hers all the same. Much to her surprise one of them actually produced a bronze, though a small one, and the other a pale blue. She named them Banzai and Ed, and doted on them. Until Banzai started to get fat that is, and she had to lessen off on the tidbits and unconditional love to get him back into shape.

* 2582-2587, 13-18 The formative years, here Shenzani actually began to understand just how much of a disappointment that she was to her mother, through no fault of her own. She got less and less of her mother's attention now that she was no longer a needy child any more. She still spent a lot of time with Shenzesk, ironically, and came to love the grumpy old gold more and more. She really became jealous of Shakita being the one who would inherit the wher in this time. She didn't hate her sister, but what childish admiration she'd held for the woman quickly faded.

* 2587, 18 Shakita dies in one of the last thread falls of the Pass. This proved to be a hard blow to Shenzenati, losing the heir to what little family honour she had left, and the child that she had intended to inherit Shenzesk when she herself died. Now only Shenzani was left to her. Zani herself does not miss the sister that took no notice of her, and thought that this would finally be time for her mother to take notice of herself in turn, but her hope was short-lived. The announcement that she would now inherit Shenzesk was matter of fact, and devoid of enthusiasm, so much so that Zani could tell that her mother had only said it so that the wher would not be passed out of the family. It hurt, a lot, outright killing any excitement she would have gotten out of inheriting the wher. Even when Zani did her best to make herself useful in the transition from Fort to Southern Winds, she got nothing but cursory approval. At least it was something, she supposed.

* 2588, 19 The next year and a half were full of the same disappointment. Living in the Weyr made it harder somehow, being surrounded by people of whom parentage was disinteresting if not completely unknown. Zani didn't know whether she was jealous of them for it or not. Life certainly seemed a lot easier that way. It was during this time that Zani began to really rebel and let her dissatisfaction be known to her mother, which only seemed to anger her more.

* 2589, 20 Shenzani's final act of rebellion was putting herself up for candidacy. This act was not driven by childish fantasies of riding dragons as many others were, but out of a selfish desire to get one up on Shenzenati by getting herself a dragon - and a gold one at that. A gold dragon was far better than a old gold wher. It would mean that she was worthy of something surely, if she was worthy of the attention of a Queen dragon. Even a dragon that wasn't gold, a fighting dragon like a brown or hell even a black, would be pretty damn awesome. Nobody yet knew for certain whether blacks would Impress women or not, she still had a good chance, right? Even if she didn't Impress a dragon, she still had the prospect of Shenzesk, though she understood that she would never be able to have the wher and a dragon.

Flit Details

Name:
Banzai
Pronounced:
BANz-eye
Color:
Bronze
Date of Birth:
12.09.2582 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Hold

General Appearance...

Banzai is a bit of a runt for a bronze. But good things come in small packages. Banzai is a pretty bronze, with a soft bronze base colour with paler bits on his face, tummy and tail tip, and darker points on his feet and nose. As well as being small, he is also of the slimmer build, though put on weight easily if over fed.

Personality...


Banzai is very protective of his human. He will pop out of between from wherever he was at even the slightest him of distress from Sheni and hiss angrily at whatever it is he thinks is causing it. When Shenzi tells him to shut up he often shitters and mumbles disapprovingly to her, though he does stop the hissing in favour of a glare from her shoulder. He's outgoing, often off exploring the Weyr or chasing greens. He doesn't shy away from perching on other humans, especially if they give him belly rubs.

Mind Voice: Usually he vocalises his mind in flit language, but if he does speak to her his voice is rich, like good chocolate.

Likes: His, greens, sunshine, being fed, belly rubs.

Dislikes: People who cause Shenzi grief, until he forget about it, being dirty, felines.

Name:
Ed
Pronounced:
Ed
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
12.09.2582 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Hold

General Appearance...

Pale sky blue with a darker nose and wingtips. A rather chubby little thing, owing to laziness mostly, though feeding him less seems to have no effect on his size.

Personality...

Lazy, for the most part. Tends to be found snoozing on Shenzi's bed or shoulder. Laid back, all he needs to be happy is food and his human thing.

Mind Voice: Higher pitched than expected, to the point of being almost squeaky.

Likes: Food, soft things to snooze on, cuddles with Shenzi.

Dislikes: Moving, being disturbed from sleep, trundlebugs.

Dragon Details

Name:
Carezth
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
29.6.2589 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Halirina’s Kalestath
Clutch Father:
S’bok’s Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 30 meters
Mature Height:  5.8 meters
Mature Wingspan: 50 meters

General Appearance...

Carezth is a big Blue, just on the upper fringe of the usual size range for a dragon of his color. Even so, he’s a little shorter than a Brown of a similar length; yet his wingspan is slightly larger than what would be proportionate for his body. His hide is a vibrant cobalt blue, though he has some faint patterning of a lighter periwinkle or sky blue. His wingsails are darker than the rest of his body, like a mixture of cobalt and navy blue.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Carezth’s mind voice is a brassy baritone, strong and robust. His voice leaves an impression on whoever hears it.

Likes: Puzzles : Carezth enjoys things that exercise his and his rider’s minds. AS such, he has a fondness for puzzles, games, and mental challenges.
Respect : He and Shenzani are deserving of recognition for their drive and strong personalities. You’d best not ignore them or write them off. Carezth believes that people should be judged by their actions, not just the color of their dragon. There is absolutely no reason he can’t aim as high as a Bronze or a Brown.

Dislikes: Shenzani’s Mother : Like his rider, Carezth resents that Shenzani’s mother feels she’s not worth anything. He’s as devoted as Shenzani to proving her wrong.
Passivity : If you’re going to remain passive, get out of his and Shenzani’s way so that they can take charge and get the job done.

Strengths:

* DRIVEN : Perhaps uncharacteristically for a Blue, Carezth wants to prove he and his rider are worthy of praise. He might even push her toward trying to become a Wingsecond, no matter the obstacles they’ll encounter on the way.

* LEVEL-HEADED : No matter his ambition, this Blue keeps a level and clear perspective. He’s able to cut past distractions and straight to the heart of things.

* COURAGEOUS : Carezth is not one to shy away from something just because it’s intimidating or frightening.

Weaknesses:

* ALOOF : He can be somewhat detached from those who might not expressly help he or Shenzani advance their position. Carezth will probably never make a very good Search dragon.

* FIXED : This Blue has difficulty changing once he’s made up his mind. He can be pretty set in his ways.

* OBSESSIVE : Carezth has difficulty letting go of things he’s set himself toward, and of problems he’s become determined to solve.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like.

I do hope you will like your new lovely. I try to put in a unique touch to all of them to give a good fit between rider and dragon. :3

Additionally, here is your dragon’s egg. ^_^

* Resolute : Decisions do not scare her, even if they've got far reaching consequences. Once she's chosen it's hard to get her to change her mind, even if it ends up getting her in more trouble than she bargained for. Determined is certainly something you could also call her.

* Honest : Brutally so, more often than not. She wants the truth, harsh or not, and has a tendency to extend this to others who may wish for a more rosy tinted version that they just plain aren't going to get from her. She's very blunt. She can take a beating from someone else though, often using criticisms as a way to make herself stronger in the future, taking it on board as advice.

* Defence : Shenzenati made sure that all her girls were taught self-defence, and Shenzani is good at it. Very good, in fact. She's quick and she's not afraid to land a blow where it counts. She also knows how to use a man's size against him.



[b]Weaknesses:[/b]

* Short tempered : She's got no time for people who talk shit or who talk down on her, and has a reputation for lashing out. She can take a joke, sure, but be careful to make sure she [i]knows[/i] that you are joking with her. Ineptitude has a tendency to frustrate her to the point where she will push in and take over whatever was being done wrong.

* Vindictive : She takes revenge seriously. Any slight to herself, her friends, lovers and family will be repaid, often in triplicate. Tends to take a more physical form than a political one that is usually more her mother's style. Shenzi's more direct. You hurt her lover, she'll hurt yours, simple. Hurt her child, and... well, she's not quite that cold hearted, but she will hurt you back somehow.

* Selfish : Though generous and giving, many of her goals in life centre around herself and herself alone. She's still young and hot-headed in that sense, but as time goes by she will mellow out and learn that sometimes the needs of others have to be put before her own. For now, she is loyal to herself, and her family second, but this is set to change, and she is more than capable of loyalty to another.

* Ruthless : Prone to giving little thought to others in the pursuit of her goals, people could get hurt. Even if leading a group, she's a strong believer in the majority win. The minority will have to like it or lump it.

[b]Describe Yourself:[/b]

* [b]Proud[/b]: [i]-----[/i] She would hate to admit it, but she's her mother's daughter in this respect, she just wishes that Shenzenati would see that.

* [b]Sassy[/b]: [i]-----[/i] She will flirt outrageously with guys, but has little intention if doing them the honour of taking them to bed.

* [b]Distant[/b]: [i]-----[/i] She has a habit of distancing herself from a relationship with another. If she feels that it's getting too serious too quickly, she'll more than often back off. If she does fall in love with someone, it will be a bond that is slow in the making, but stronger than death itself.

* [b]Respectful of teachers[/b]: [i]-----[/i] She respects those with knowledge and skill greater than her own, even her teachers who's skill she has exceeded with time. Teachers she holds in high regard, as well as anyone with the title 'Master' until such a time as they prove to be dicks to her. Authority? Not so much. If you've not got said authority through hard graft then she'll have a hard time valuing your opinion. Weyrleaders are a prime example of this. She's never understood why your dragon catching the gold should make you someone worthy of leading the Weyr.

* [b]Family-orientated[/b]: [i]-----[/i] Though she doesn't particularly like her family as it stands now, if the day comes that she gets one of her own she will be utterly dedicated to them, to the point where it will likely come into conflict with other stuff in her life. She's going to have a hard time giving up any kids to the creche.

[b]The Magic Touch:[/b] Mildly obsessed with proving herself to her mother. Because of this the old woman still has a lot of power over her, though she will vehemently deny it. Disobeying her mother is the primary reason that she's standing as a candidate... Even though it does mean losing her chance at Shenzesk.[/apprefl]
[apptitle]Family...[/apptitle]
[apprefl][b]Mother:[/b] Shenzenati. Matriarch of a long gone trading family, 11.12.2520
[b]Father:[/b] Amenak. Holder, 19.08.2531

[b]Siblings:[/b]
Shakita, F, 10.03.2545 (deceased)

Plus others of various ages, not important as deceased [/apprefl]
[apptitle]Tell us a story...[/apptitle]
[apprefl]
* [i]Family background[/i] Shenzenati's family have a long tradition of trading through out the Igen to Telgar region, which they've been doing for hundreds of years. The family is a bit unusual in that they're highly matriarchal, owing to a string of female-only births a couple of generations back in the family. The trend has since ended, but by that time the ideal of a female leader had been firmly set in their ways, and the one boy that had the audacity to be first born was not honoured with the position of leader as would have been his birth right in any other family. Shenzenati had many children, most of them girls, and most of whom perished to Thread, a consequence of Shenzenati's decision to continue trading in the Igen region even after Threadfalls gained intensity beyond that the dragonriders could effectively control. She still insists to this day that they were doing their duty as traders to get supplies to the outlying cot holds, despite ignoring the advice of every dragonrider in the area. The family lost everything when Igen and the lower Telgar region fell into destruction. Any power that they once had was gone, and their craft now somewhat obsolete. Shenzenati retreated with her remaining family  to Nabol, where they were forced to take up whatever tasks were open to them. Mostly they survived off of selling Shenzesk's eggs. When Nabol in turn fell, Shenzenati losing another two of her children, she and the remaining two relocated to Fort.

* [i]06.07.2569, 0[/i] Shenzani was born in Fort Hold. She was an accidental pregnancy, and as such Shenzenati couldn't remember the man's name, hence Shenzani's own being very similar to her mother's. At this time she has two siblings, an older sister Shakita and an older brother Adelonati, both half-siblings from Shenzenati's husband before he died.

* [i]2569-2581, 0-12[/i] Grew up very much in the shadow of her elder sister who, besides being fully grown already, was heir to the family, what little was left of it, and to Shenzesk. Being still little and still dependant on her mother, this was probably the happiest time of her life, certainly the only time she actually got praised. She didn't really understand this; she knew no different. But it was still frustrating to the young girl. The wher was a constant presence in Zani's young life, and played an instrumental part in keeping the child out of trouble playing babysitter. Zani didn't mind this; she liked Shenzesk, and she could get away with more than she could with her mother or sister around, since the wher couldn't understand everything that the human hatchling was doing.

* [i]2582, 13[/i] Adelonati was killed at a wher hatching. Shenzani mourned for him, as he'd been a good older brother to her, but not for long. A month later in the same year she bought herself a pair of firelizard eggs. Her siblings both had some, from back in the good old days when their family actually traded the things and they had come cheap. They were tiny little things, neither likely to hatch anything bigger than a blue, but she cherished them for being hers all the same. Much to her surprise one of them actually produced a bronze, though a small one, and the other a pale blue. She named them Banzai and Ed, and doted on them. Until Banzai started to get fat that is, and she had to lessen off on the tidbits and unconditional love to get him back into shape.

* [i]2582-2587, 13-18[/i] The formative years, here Shenzani actually began to understand just how much of a disappointment that she was to her mother, through no fault of her own. She got less and less of her mother's attention now that she was no longer a needy child any more. She still spent a lot of time with Shenzesk, ironically, and came to love the grumpy old gold more and more. She really became jealous of Shakita being the one who would inherit the wher in this time. She didn't hate her sister, but what childish admiration she'd held for the woman quickly faded.

* [i]2587, 18[/i] Shakita dies in one of the last thread falls of the Pass. This proved to be a hard blow to Shenzenati, losing the heir to what little family honour she had left, and the child that she had intended to inherit Shenzesk when she herself died. Now only Shenzani was left to her. Zani herself does not miss the sister that took no notice of her, and thought that this would finally be time for her mother to take notice of herself in turn, but her hope was short-lived. The announcement that she would now inherit Shenzesk was matter of fact, and devoid of enthusiasm, so much so that Zani could tell that her mother had only said it so that the wher would not be passed out of the family. It hurt, a lot, outright killing any excitement she would have gotten out of inheriting the wher. Even when Zani did her best to make herself useful in the transition from Fort to Southern Winds, she got nothing but cursory approval. At least it was something, she supposed.

* [i]2588, 19[/i] The next year and a half were full of the same disappointment. Living in the Weyr made it harder somehow, being surrounded by people of whom parentage was disinteresting if not completely unknown. Zani didn't know whether she was jealous of them for it or not. Life certainly seemed a lot easier that way. It was during this time that Zani began to really rebel and let her dissatisfaction be known to her mother, which only seemed to anger her more.

* [i]2589, 20[/i] Shenzani's final act of rebellion was putting herself up for candidacy. This act was not driven by childish fantasies of riding dragons as many others were, but out of a selfish desire to get one up on Shenzenati by getting herself a dragon - and a gold one at that. A gold dragon was far better than a old gold wher. It would mean that she was worthy of something surely, if she was worthy of the attention of a Queen dragon. Even a dragon that wasn't gold, a fighting dragon like a brown or hell even a black, would be pretty damn awesome. Nobody yet knew for certain whether blacks would Impress women or not, she still had a good chance, right? Even if she didn't Impress a dragon, she still had the prospect of Shenzesk, though she understood that she would never be able to have the wher and a dragon.

[b]Place of Birth:[/b]
Fort Hold[/appbio]
[apptitle]General Appearance...[/apptitle]
[apprefl]Banzai is a bit of a runt for a bronze. But good things come in small packages. Banzai is a pretty bronze, with a soft bronze base colour with paler bits on his face, tummy and tail tip, and darker points on his feet and nose. As well as being small, he is also of the slimmer build, though put on weight easily if over fed.[/apprefl]
[apptitle]Personality...[/apptitle]

[apprefl]Banzai is very protective of his human. He will pop out of between from wherever he was at even the slightest him of distress from Sheni and hiss angrily at whatever it is he thinks is causing it. When Shenzi tells him to shut up he often shitters and mumbles disapprovingly to her, though he does stop the hissing in favour of a glare from her shoulder. He's outgoing, often off exploring the Weyr or chasing greens. He doesn't shy away from perching on other humans, especially if they give him belly rubs.

[b]Mind Voice:[/b] Usually he vocalises his mind in flit language, but if he does speak to her his voice is rich, like good chocolate.

[b]Likes:[/b] His, greens, sunshine, being fed, belly rubs.

[b]Dislikes:[/b] People who cause Shenzi grief, until he forget about it, being dirty, felines.

[b]Measurements:[/b]
Mature [i]Length[/i]: 30 meters
Mature [i]Height[/i]:  5.8 meters
Mature [i]Wingspan[/i]: 50 meters[/appbio]
[apptitle]General Appearance...[/apptitle]
[apprefl]Carezth is a [i]big[/i] Blue, just on the upper fringe of the usual size range for a dragon of his color. Even so, he’s a little shorter than a Brown of a similar length; yet his wingspan is slightly larger than what would be proportionate for his body. His hide is a vibrant cobalt blue, though he has some faint patterning of a lighter periwinkle or sky blue. His wingsails are darker than the rest of his body, like a mixture of cobalt and navy blue. [/apprefl]
[apptitle]Personality...[/apptitle]
[apprefl][b]Mind Voice:[/b] Carezth’s mind voice is a brassy baritone, strong and robust. His voice leaves an impression on whoever hears it.

[b]Likes:[/b] Puzzles : Carezth enjoys things that exercise his and his rider’s minds. AS such, he has a fondness for puzzles, games, and mental challenges.
Respect : He and Shenzani are deserving of recognition for their drive and strong personalities. You’d best not ignore them or write them off. Carezth believes that people should be judged by their actions, not just the color of their dragon. There is absolutely no reason he can’t aim as high as a Bronze or a Brown.

[b]Dislikes:[/b] Shenzani’s Mother : Like his rider, Carezth resents that Shenzani’s mother feels she’s not worth anything. He’s as devoted as Shenzani to proving her wrong.
Passivity : If you’re going to remain passive, get out of his and Shenzani’s way so that they can take charge and get the job done.

[b]Strengths:[/b]

* DRIVEN : Perhaps uncharacteristically for a Blue, Carezth wants to prove he and his rider are worthy of praise. He might even push her toward trying to become a Wingsecond, no matter the obstacles they’ll encounter on the way.

* LEVEL-HEADED : No matter his ambition, this Blue keeps a level and clear perspective. He’s able to cut past distractions and straight to the heart of things.

* COURAGEOUS : Carezth is not one to shy away from something just because it’s intimidating or frightening.

[b]Weaknesses:[/b]

* ALOOF : He can be somewhat detached from those who might not expressly help he or Shenzani advance their position. Carezth will probably never make a very good Search dragon.

* FIXED : This Blue has difficulty changing once he’s made up his mind. He can be pretty set in his ways.

* OBSESSIVE : Carezth has difficulty letting go of things he’s set himself toward, and of problems he’s become determined to solve.

[b]Dragon Speech Code:[/b] [color=#7673FB][bgcolor=#0804A1]This is what your dragon's voice will look like.[/bgcolor][/color]
