Current Month

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.

S'ren [06.07.2572] Blue Weyrling
« on: August 03, 2014, 02:07:34 PM »

Play By:
George Harrison

First Name:
Date of Birth:
06.07.2572 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr
Job Before Search:
Soren was apprenticed as a Harper, but his mentor was killed by a fever just before the journey to Fort Island, and in the hurry to move weyrs, his training was abandoned. However once settling into the new weyr, his training recommenced.
Color Preference:
Soren hopes for a Black, Blue, or Brown. He fears dragons Impress by birth-gender, but still dares to imagine himself Impressing a Black. He hopes to be able to Impress a Black so that he can help fight off the Hunters, if only he could get a chance to Impress one.

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Soren refrains from wearing the soft, feminine tunics his mother regularly attempts to push on him, instead choosing to borrow his younger brother's clothes. He chopped his long hair off when he was 12 turns old, to his family's chagrin, and has continued to wear it short since. He found a length of old, stretchy cloth, which he fashioned into an undershirt which manages to hide his chest, and among the former Holders, who never knew him, and his two siblings, goes by Soren, and is referred to as a boy. He has two slight scars on his arms from his first encounter with Thread.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: While Soren realized that the Extended Pass was a terrible tragedy, he knew nothing else, unlike some of the elders, and was not as effected by the catastrophe as they were. The Pass ended when he was 15, and the sudden change seemed more radical to him than the near-constant Thread did.

Response to dragon color mutations: Soren doesn't care too much about the new colours, although he finds those who complain about them rather close-minded. He secretly has hopes of impressing a Black.

Who are you...

Likes: List of 3-5 likes here

Rain: As a child, Soren once accidentally ran out into a rainstorm during the near-constant Thread-fall. He was trying to avoid his mother, and wasn't looking where he was going. If it hadn't been for the rain, he would have been devoured by Threads. Ever since then, he's had a fascination with the rain, and now that the Pass has ended, he will often sit outside and let the rain fall on his skin.

Music: Soren's favourite evenings are when the Harpers play in the hall after the evening meal. He will occasionally join them, but  usually feels he hasn't had enough training to do so. Despite this, he loves to play the flute for the children in the weyr creche, and is known in Southern Winds as the best non-Harper musician.

Fire-Lizards: Although he has yet to Impress any of his own, he enjoys watching the wild lizards of the island, and will often get them to come closer to him by playing songs for them.


Loud or Discordant Noises: Soren has a delicate ear, and he strongly dislikes noises that offend his musical sensibilities. The noises made by the Hunters are especially displeasing to him.

Hunters: Not only do the Hunters make noises he dislikes, but not long after arriving on the island, Soren witnessed the harm a pack of the beasts could do. This affected his preference in dragons greatly, making him wish to Impress a Black dragon in order to hunt down the Hunters and protect the Weyr.

Clutter: Soren's younger brother never learned much to pick up after himself, and Soren learned quickly that he should pick up after his brother. This quickly turned into a need to clean and sort most things, and Soren's quarters are nearly spotless as a result. However, he often annoys the other weyrfolk by putting things away, whether it is wanted or not.

Strengths: 5+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* LOYALTY : Soren is fiercely loyal to his weyr, wanting nothing more than to protect it from danger.

* INTEGRITY : He refuses to compromise his morals to make things easier for himself.

*BRAVE : He stayed outside in the rain and Thread instead of running inside.

* MUSIC : Soren can often calm the spirits of the fire-lizards in the weyr by playing for them, and will often step up to help relax a hysterical flit.

*CARING : He loves to help in the creche when he's not out watching the flits, and can often be found in there.

Weaknesses: 5+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

*FOOL-HARDY : Stood outside in the middle of Thread-fall to make a point to his mother.

* STRONG-TEMPERED : Often gets in giant fights with his parents over his haircut and clothing choices.

*FLIGHTY : Finds it hard to settle on one thing, be it a career or a partner

* SOLITARY : Will occasionally skip out on work to be alone.

* STUBBORN : He hates to give in, even when he realizes its the right thing to do.

Describe Yourself:

* WORD: ----- Moody: Often will sit on his own and brood over the day

* WORD: ----- Rash: Can often act before he thinks, as proved when he ran out in the middle of Threadfall.

* WORD: ----- Musical: Loves to play his flute for those who will listen, especially the fire-lizards and the children in the creche.

 *WORD: ----- Secretive: He hasn't revealed his gender or orientation to anyone except for his two siblings, whom he swore to secrecy.

* WORD: ----- Ambitious: Soren aspires to the greatest hights he can reach, the rank of a Black or Bronze dragon, and maybe someday even Weyrleader. If he can get passed the gender issue.

The Magic Touch: Soren is a bisexual trans man. He is only out to his siblings so far, but if his plans to Impress a Black, or even a Bronze, dragon go well, he will come out then.

Father: Soreal, Sn. Journeyman Weaver, 01.12.22549(deceased 09.12.2582)

Give us a taste of your character and a sample of how you roleplay. No real length limit.

Soren held tight to his younger brother, closing his eyes tightly. He heard the Wingleader count down, so that they would go intobetween at the right tim, and then suddenly, it was cold. He coudln't feel himself sitting on the back of the dragon, couldn't tell if he still had hold of Sorilen. Panicked, he opened his eyes, but then reminded himself that this was planned. He started counting one...two...three and then felt the warmth of sunlight on his skin again.

"You alright, Soril?" he asked his brother, who was clutching his arms tightly. Soril nodded, smiling weakly up at his older brother. "Yeah, I'm fine, Sor," the boy responded, relaxing his grip.

Soren, reassured that his brother hadn't been too frightened by the jump between, looked around them excitedly. He took in the dark green of the trees below the bowl which had been transformed into the new weyr with interest. "Soril, look at all the green!" he exclaimed. "This place must have been barely touched by Thread at all," he added softly, smiling. "This place is too good to be true..."

Flit Details

Date of Birth:
05.10.2589 9th Pass or 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Tallar started off as a very small little Brown, closer in size to a Blue, but he will grow to be nearly as big as a Bronze, with powerful hind legs and broad, strong wings. He is a reddish brown, with soft tan markings on his wings and back, and down his tail. Along his spine and over his face he also has dark, almost grey splotches. His underbelly is noticeably darker than his top, as are his undersails.


Mind Voice: Tallar has a smooth, dark mind voice, but when he's excited his voice becomes higher and squeakier.


Flights: Tallar is nearly as big as a Bronze, and he enjoys pitting himself against them in both Gold and Green flights, although he rarely, if ever, wins a Gold.

Attention: Tallar is never happier when someone is stroking or oiling him. He's quite vain, and having attention paied to him is very flattering of his vanity.


Cold: Despite being born in the winter months, Tallar is very clingy in the cold, and will often try to burrow into Soren's clothes to stay warm.

Bronzes: Tallar thinks the larger males are rather stuck up, and feels that he could beat them in flights any day, despite evidence to the contrary.

Dragon Details

Date of Birth: 
36.10.2589 9th Interval.
Place of Birth: 
Southern Winds Weyr.
Clutch Mother: 
Clutch Father: 
Mature Length: 27.2 M
Mature Height: 5.44 M
Mature Wingspan:  45.12 M

General Appearance...

With a slate-grey hide streaked with darker blue markings that look like rain or rippling water, Darath knows that he's an attractive Blue. While he isn't arrogant or full of himself, he's proud of his appearance and will keep himself impeccably groomed. His hide will darken some as he grows older, but his wingsails will always maintain the even coloring of slate that he had when he hatched. Darath might not be a large dragon, but he's quick and agile, both on the ground and in the air. Rather than acting as a scout or backup support, he'll argue that he can fight Hunters and Snakes just as well as any Brown or Bronze. Much like a mongoose can take on a cobra, Darath has naturally good instincts and reflexes that will make him an adept combatant so long as he sticks to his training.


Mind Voice: Darath has a lively baritone voice, extremely emotive and pleasing to the ear. He's quick-witted and fast with a joke, just as he's on his toes when it comes to teasing and other forms of conversation. He doesn't say things just to hear his own voice, but he's outgoing enough to engage others in meaningful discussions rather than remain silent. He also has no reservations about talking to other dragons, riders, or even general inhabitants of the weyr.

Likes: Storms : Something about the bone-deep rumblings of thunder soothe down to his very core. Rather than fearing the sounds for believing that it's the mountain moving beneath them, he's likely to find a spot where he can press his belly against the stone and really feel the vibrations.   
Adventure : Full of energy and spunk, this Blue is always up for something exciting, whether that be verbal sparring with S'ren or another dragon, exploring the tunnels while he's still small enough to do so, or flirting (when he's old enough to care about such things). His only requirements for a "good" adventure are that S'ren can enjoy it with him.
Adrenaline : Darath is fearless and eager to prove himself as an asset to the weyr. Rather than fearing the Hunters or Snakes, he's going to be impatient to grow up so that he can help protect his home. While he might get bored with the more monotonous weyrling drills, Darath will find his true calling when they begin firestone training and simulated defensive or offensive maneuvers.

Dislikes: Rigid personalities : People who get hung up on tradition or what he sees as pointless details drive him crazy; he'll end up dismissing them and telling S'ren not to bother with caring what they think or what they say.
Places he cannot go : While he's not stupid enough to try to stuff his body somewhere it's not meant to go, Darath dislikes it when S'ren has to go somewhere that he cannot physically accompany him. While this won't be much of a problem while they're still weyrlings, it will likely translate into impatience for business within the weyr proper when he's older. It's not a sense of separation anxiety, but rather that Darath thinks the weyr should have been built so the dragons could go everywhere.
People who talk too much : Darath is all for interesting and engaging conversations with people he likes. But the types of chitchat where no one is really saying anything will just make him bored and sarcastic, likely relaying stream-of-consciousness comments about the other person to Soren, on the gradient from teasing to acidic depending on his overall mood. 

* HONEST : This Blue values his integrity too much to lie, even when the truth might be painful or uncomfortable. If he does something wrong, he'll own up to it, apologize if appropriate, and move on with that new lesson in mind. Similarly, he won't sugar-coat the truth to obscure it, but he'll try to be as gentle as he can if he knows it's distressing.

* FLEXIBLE : Darath knows how to roll with the punches. While certain people or situations might annoy him, he never stays upset very long. It just seems like a waste of time to him. He doesn't understand when other people hold grudges or get hung up on worrying about what others think of them. This flexibility extends to physical agility as well, and his maneuverability can make up for his smaller size when it counts.

* FANCIFUL : Despite all his strengths and typically direct attitude, Darath is easily distractible if the topic or activity at hand isn't something he's really invested in. Sometimes he can get lost in daydreaming or other diversions, and will need his rider to recall his attention to what they're working on at that moment.

* APATHETIC : In many cases, Darath can seem like he doesn't care about much. The opinions of others don't really sway him, so long as he feels like he and S'ren are holding true to their integrity and are serving the weyr to their full capacity. Gossip and politicking hold no interest to him, and criticism can go right over his head if he doesn't think it's deserved or accurate.

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

Anything Else: 
As far as Darath is concerned, the fact that S'ren doesn't have the "typical" body of a male doesn't matter at all, and he'd be very confused (and then bitingly protective) if anyone ever misgendered or made an issue of his rider's history. He will never refer to his rider as anything other than a man, from the very first time he greets him with his new honorific. And if S'ren ever wonders at the fact that he Impressed a Blue, Darath will be quick to assert that it didn't have anything to do with his physical sex -- all those other dragons weren't good enough for him, and Darath saw him first. 

He might not be the Black that Soren was secretly hoping for, but we hope you like him all the same. <3 Darath isn't one to be discouraged or accept being walked all over just because of his color, and he's smart enough to argue his case with the best of them. (He and K'eeda's Aeleroth might have the potential to be good friends.)
