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.

Your Reflection...

Appearance: V'let is someone of a generally fair appearance. His skin is a light cream in color, blue eyes standing out sharply against the paleness. While not light enough to be considered blonde his hair is certainly a far shot from black. Rather it settles in at a light shade of golden brown. Standing at exactly six feet tall yet lacking much in the way of muscle or fat on his frame he maintains a lanky look. When it comes to clothes he isn't a particular person. Sure he prefers things that he looks decent in but he doesn't push for overly fancy garments. When it comes down to it he'll wear something comfortable over something pretty any day.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: V'let has gone through a good portion of his life without caring. Sure it's sad but in the long run not something he'd like to focus on. A good deal of his reason for not particular caring is simply because he doesn't let himself focus on it. In his mind it's a miserable thing that's better off not thought about.

Response to dragon color mutations: When he spares a thought to the mutation colors it is often one of either complete disapproval or revulsion. The original five dragon colors were the original five for a reason. In his mind if new colors were needed or useful they would have appeared long ago. Those freaks of nature showing up now can only bring disaster in his mind.

Who are you...

Likes: Success: the feeling of succeeding at something, of being right at something, is one that fills him with a great burst of pride in himself. He's not above flaunting this pride either. Freedom: being able to do what he wants when he wants to is one of the things he values most. If you ask him if you aren't free you just aren't living. Companionship: even though he isn't always particularly friendly V'let does value those around him. As a matter of fact he would likely be lost without some sort of emotional support.

Dislikes: Backtalk: to a degree. He has nothing against backtalk when he's the one backtalking, but when someone speaks up against him? He just doesn't have any patience for that. Orders: or at least orders that are directed at him. It just happens that he doesn't handle people commanding him well. Quite an unfortunate mindset for someone who lives in a Weyr of all places. That being said he isn't someone to openly act out against commands. Rather he tends to internally seethe and make scathing comments behind his superior's backs. Treachery: betraying someone who placed their trust in you is one of the worst things a person can do in his mind.

Strengths:

* WITTY : It just so happens that V'let is quite skilled when it comes to verbal sparring and quick remarks.

* PERCEPTIVE : Although he's awfully good at denying what he sees he is decent at figuring things out when it comes down to it.

* LOYAL : Due to his prickly natures it may be a little hard to get close to V'let. However, once he forms a bond with someone he will do his best to do right by them.

* PROTECTIVE : This particular strength is not complete and unending. It just so happens that he doesn't care too much for the general populous. That being said he will do his best to keep the select few he cherishes unharmed.

* ARDENT : If he's excited about something V'let can be an exceptionally passionate person.

Weaknesses:

* OVERLY SARCASTIC : Sometimes he just doesn't know when to throw the snark aside and handle things seriously.

* HYPOCRITICAL : He'll commit the very same behaviors he looks down on others for but refuse to admit to it.

* CLOSED MINDED : Very nearly traditional to a T V'let has trouble accepting things that are new or unusual.

* SELFISH : It isn't often that he thinks of someone else's welfare before his own, let alone place it above his.

* PROUD : V'let thinks quite a bit of himself and is more than willing to brag his head off as well as overestimating what he is capable of.

* COWARDLY : When it comes down to it bravery is not something that comes to him easily. Should he face something truly frightening he might find himself freezing up only to berate himself about it later.

Describe Yourself:

* ARROGANT: ----- V'let thinks the world of himself and isn't afraid of letting others know it.

* OFFENSIVE: ----- Should he feel threatened, angry, or simply want to get a jab in at someone he is more than likely to sling some harshly-worded attacks.

* TRADITIONAL: ----- While it is clear that Pern is changing V'let is one of those that tries to cling to the 'old ways'. Furthermore he has nothing against loudly preaching his beliefs, having made his more than negative opinions on cross-impressions, mutations, and support of a strict color hierarchy more than known.

* SARCASTIC: ----- Whether the situation is good or bad it's all too likely that he will turn to sarcasm to bolster his words at any given time.

* CONTRARY: ----- V'let likes to act like he doesn't need anybody and does try to keep people at a distance. In truth he is someone who craves companionship and, quite frankly, needs it. Without someone to offer him advice or guidance every now and then he tends to collapse in on himself. Unfortunately he loathes to admit it for fear that it might make him seem weak.

The Magic Touch: V'let has a strong ability to maintain eye contact even when intimidated and is rather good at staring. That being said he doesn't due so often due to how strange it is.

Family...

Mother: Valistaki, Journeyman Harper, born 01.24.2551, died 04.18.2573
Father: Uolen, Journeyman Beastcrafter, born 07.21.2549

Siblings: U'ket, Bronzerider, born 03.11.2569, impressed 09.16.2586
Valista, Dragon Candidate, born 04.18.2573

Children: None

Tell us a story...



* 2571-2572, 1-2 V'let was born to a long standing couple in Fort Hold right around the time that Tillek Hold, the Fishercraft Hall, and High Reaches Weyr fell. While sorrow submerged much of Pern he spent the first two turns of his like in the relative peace of a child.

* 2572-2581, 3-10 Valistaki dies given birth to her third child and only daughter. As he got older Varolet loathed Valista, named for her mother, for a period time. He couldn't help but blame her for the death of his mother. However, his disgust began to fade over time.

* 2582-2586, 11-15 In his spare time Uolen would impart his 'wisdom' upon his children after his wife's death. Varolet in particular soaked everything he had to say up like a sponge. As it happened the man is largely where he came to receive some of his more traditionalist ideals from. Unfortunately he also began to form quite an ego during this period of time. It was also around this time that his father attempted to marry him off. However, as Uolen wasn't a particular popular or influential person there were very few people interested in binding themselves to him. From there Varolet's own personality was enough to cause several suitors to look at other options. That being seid he did pick up a craft around this time, although he was a poor smith at best.

* 2587, 16 The time came that the horrendous ninth pass came to an end and everyone was moved to Southern Winds Weyr. Varolet was less than pleased about this and made sure everyone knew just how unhappy he was about being uprooted from his home. His negativity was lessened some when he was declared able to stand and potentially impress.

* 2588-2589, 17-18 It was with a single minded determination that Varolet stood at every clutch he was presented to. He was going to impress bronze and be the greatest dragonrider in the Weyr one day, he was absolutely certain of it. Of course there were some roadbumps, such as the sudden increase of mutant colors and a black, catching the senior queen, but that certainly didn't stop him. It wasn't until he stood at one of Oriath's clutches that he finally impressed to ___ _____.

Roleplay Sample:


So it was time for him to haul himself out there and stand for another hatching. The very concept almost made him want to roll his eyes in frustration. He'd been standing for well over a turn now and yet a dragonet hadn't so much as spared him more than a passing glance. Of course he didn't assume that this meant he wouldn't impress. Oh no, his dragon was waiting for him, his handsome bronze. When he finally emerged onto those Faranth-forsaken sands and made his way over to him they would change Pern together. Or at very least they would help make it a little more like how it ought to be. Plus no one would be able to control them. Well, there were the golds but... still! Almost no one bossed around a bronze and his rider! All this waiting might have gotten to another person. Not him. Nope, Varolet was absolutely certain that his dragon was waiting for him.

That didn't mean that he couldn't be a little annoyed at him taking his sweet time about it though.

It was not a look of awe or nervousness that found itself on the candidate's face as he got himself situation in front of the clutch. Rather his expression was just as annoyed as he felt. The look he presented was a simple one of someone who thought they had better places to be. Only that wasn't truly all there was too it. No matter how hard he tried to hide it as he glared out across the sands there was a part of him that was nervous. Some traitorous bit that whispered of him potentially being left standing again or something else going wrong. It made his heart thud wildly in his chest even as he tried to ignore it. No matter how apathetic he tried to be he knew the truth, this was it. Make-or-break time. He would impress here or be left to try again, and again, and again, and aga-

No. Enough of that. He would only think positive thoughts, he would force himself to think positive thoughts, and all that could be dealt with later. If not later... well he didn't want to look about to freak out on the sands if 'later' didn't turn out to be an option.

Dragon Details

Name:
Salith.
Color:
Green.
Date of Birth:
32.09.2589 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Oriath
Clutch Father:
Leremith
Measurements:
Mature Length: 21.5 M 
Mature Height: 4.3 M
Mature Wingspan: 35.69 M

General Appearance...

Sailth bears a much subtler patterning than many of her brethren, most of her body bearing a dark forest green coloration that is very rich. There will never be a part of her that seems washed out or faded, and when she's old enough to experience being proddy, her hide will deepen to such a dark green that it almost seems black. She does bear some very faint mottling especially along her tail and face, but it is hardly noticeable save in bright light. The most curious part of her coloration are the lighter, bottle-green markings haphazardly scattered across her body, almost like a littering of scars or past Threadscores. Her wingsails, both on the outer and inner sides, are thickly speckled with midnight green and much darker than the rest of her body.

She is a bulky dragon for her size, well-muscled and powerful even for a Green. With careful training and dedicated exercise, she'll become a powerhouse among her color and a very adept flyer. What she might lack in deft maneuverability, she will make up for in strength that rivals that of a small Blue.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Salith's mind voice is a robust alto just as strong as she is. Her tone is such that most will listen well when she speaks, and the only person she might speak more gently to is V'let. Since he resents authority, she'll do her best to coax him into things that are good for him rather than simply throwing her weight around. But for everyone else, she has no problems with being bossy.

Likes: Younger dragons : Salith has quite a motherly streak, and once she's older she'll enjoy playing mentor to young weyrlings or less experienced dragons.
Gossip : Nosy and superior, Salith enjoys hearing about what others have going on, especially if it's of the scandalous variety. She'll endure the company of other dragons she might not necessarily like just to get a juicy piece of gossip.
Being social : She argues that she wasn’t meant to be alone, and intensely dislikes loneliness. Even if she's not actively engaged in conversation, Salith likes the knowledge that there are others around her. Since V'let is of a similar mindset, she sees this as further evidence that they were meant for each other -- and she'll always be the emotional support he needs.

Dislikes: Nonsense : Salith has little tolerance for it, and prefers to get straight to the point of a given situation.
Being looked down on : She's a staunch believer that each color has their own place in the weyr -- but that doesn't mean she's any less good at what she does than the higher ranked dragons. If V'let ever gives her any backtalk about the fact that she's a Green, or isn't appropriately grateful she chose him, Salith is liable to give him a piece of her mind.
Firestone : Ironically, she hates the taste. But getting to breathe fire almost makes up for how terrible the flavor is.

Strengths:

* STRONG-WILLED : It would take  lot to cow Salith, and she's nigh impossible to manipulate. When she's set her mind to something, it's difficult to change it -- especially if it happens to be something she thinks will be good for V'let. No matter whether it pushes him out of his comfort zone or not.

* POWERFUL : If V'let is strict enough with his training and hers, Salith can grow into a very powerful Green with the endurance of a much larger dragon. Her strong wings and bulky body house a lot of muscle for her size.

Weaknesses:

* BOSSY : Salith can be rather overbearing to those meeker than her. Even if she doesn't mean it maliciously, she can sometimes come across rather mean when she comments on something or tries to delegate. She'll not argue with a direct superior, but someone who is a higher than color than her but doesn't hold any rank, she might rankle against.

* UNFORGIVING : Once you've earned her ire, it's difficult to get her to forget it. Salith has difficulty empathizing with people who make her angry, and as such might read malicious intent into actions they take that have nothing to do with really wanting to make her upset.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Background: #058328; Text: #7EF16B


Member Info...

Anything Else:
Made per the process outlined at the Optional Weyrling Application.

When she is physically mature, Salith will fly on 34.3, 30.7, and 32.10. She is not a Force Catch.
