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: Calladren holds himself as one much older than he. He walks with his shoulders back, head up, and eyes forward. He exudes a confidence that is not found in many people of his age. His shaggy hair frames a strong jaw and stark, blue eyes, which have a way of putting one at ease. He enjoys the finer things in life and, as such, likes to wear clothing of a higher quality than most boys of fifteen turns wear. His jerkin is normal belted around the waist and Calladren normally carries a belt knife on his hip.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Calladren doesn't quite understand the scope of the catastrophe that was the 9th Pass. He was born near the end of the Pass and lived in Fort Weyr until the Pass ended. Both of his parents were riders and, even from a young age, he understood the duty that all riders had towards the people of Pern.

Response to dragon color mutations: He thinks that the two new dragon colors are pretty cool. The black dragons are huge like that bronzes, but he likes how small the red dragons are. They are quick and agile, and they are extremely fast on the ground.

Who are you...

Bubbly Pies: What isn't there to like about bubbly pies? Their crispy shell, their warm, gooey filling, the way the smell, and, most importantly, how the sweet treat melts in the mouth. Calladren has been known to sneak into the kitchens to steal bubbly pies as they cool.

Fire-lizards: As a son of a pair of riders and growing in the Weyr, Calladren is familiar with all of the usefulness of fire-lizards. They are wonderful companions and are useful for communicating. He, personally, would love to Impress a couple of fire-lizards. But with the hectic life that he has been leading, he doesn't know if he'll ever be able to comb the beaches for a clutch of eggs.

Music: Calladren fell in love with music at a young age. The Weyrharper in Fort Weyr entertained him for countless hours in the creche. He was so attuned with the music and the instruments that made the wondrous sounds that the harper had Calladren assist him with the songs. At the age of twelve, Calladren was loaned out to the Harpers who still lived and made the journey to Southern Winds Weyr. He experience three years of tutelage, favoring the gitar, before he was discovered on a Search.

Hunters: Its not fair; the Pass is over but still, the riders can't rest. They still have to fight Hunters. These large beasts are dangerous and kill innocent people and dragons. Its not safe for Holders to be outside of the protection of the weyr's walls and it is still risky for riders to be out of the safety of their volcanic home.

Aggressive People: Calladren does not like people who are overtly violent and aggressive. They have no consideration for those around them and only cause harm to people. They bully others around and make everyone's life uncomfortable.

Holder Children: Almost all of the Holder children that Calladren has met, have been selfish and self-righteous. They only care about themselves and how they rank up compared to those around them. Status is their number one prerogative, not helping those around them.

Learning Quickly: Calladren can pick up on subjects and tasks quickly. He has always been bright and a good thinker. Most areas of study come naturally to him and he rarely struggles to pick up a new skill.

Critical Thinking: He can think his way out of most situations and come up with solutions in the heat of the moment. Calladren is a disciplined thinker who thinks in a clear, rational, open-minded manner that is supported by evidence. He excels in thinking outside of the box when traditional ways of thinking don't work.

Empathy: Calladren is sensitive to the emotions and feelings of those around him, be it man, beast, or dragon. He truly cares about his friends and those that he can help. This empathy helps him care for the dragons that he is assigned to for duty, as well as communicate with others in a way that is most effective.

Diplomacy: The boy is a clear speaker that respects the opinions and desires of those with whom he speaks with. He can defuse tense situations with an even tone of voice and does his best to keep the peace through calm conversation, as opposed to raised voices and acts of violence.

Teaching: Being able to grasp knowledge quickly has led Calladren into a role of a peer tutor. He understands when fellow Candidates have a hard time understanding lessons and assists them with their studies, without doing their work for them.

Working Seriously: Calladren has a hard time taking work seriously; this stems from the ease of which he learns the subjects that are taught. His lack of need to study has caused his work ethic to develop poorly. That, coupled with the fact that most weyrfolk love him, has caused him to want to shirk schoolwork and goof off in class.

Staying on Task: The young man is easily distracted. If he hears some juicy gossip or smells a well-spiced piece of meat, he would most likely want to listen or track down the delicious meal. This does not mean that he is a bad worker, but that he needs someone over him to keep him on task during a dull job.

Patience: Due to the ease in which he learns, Calladren gets frustrated when instruction is not moving quick enough. He gets bored and feels like he could be doing something better with his time. He wished that all things moved as quick as he needed them to move and the fact that they don't makes him antsy and irritable.

Letting Things Go: Calladren is very defensive, especially when it comes to bullies and aggressive people. He has a hard time allowing taunts and teasing go unanswered and it can get him into trouble. Though he'd rather settle things through words, a strong teasing can get him riled up to the point of fighting. After the bullying is over, Calladren will tend to focus on the teasing and it will encompass his thoughts for a while, even making his actions a little more brusque.

Long-term Thought: Being relatively young and not fully matured, Calladren is short-sighted. He focuses more on the here and now, but not so much on the future. The boy tries to have fun in the moment but doesn't think about the effects that any sort of goofing off could have on the future. So what if he burned an entire box of sulfur sticks, the flames were awesome!

Describe Yourself:
* Lax: Calladren is easy going. You would most likely see him out on the beach relaxing, or in the grassy field on a blanket plucking away at his gitar. This is not to say that he is lazy, but he, rather, appreciates quality relaxing time. He rarely gets into fights and would rather solve disputes with words and not fists.

* Prankster: As most boys do, Calladren has a slight mischievous side. He finds humor in mild pranks, such as short sheeting a bed. Of course, he does not do anything overly malicious and always comes clean. He expects to be pranked back and is always ready to laugh about it, when he is pranked.

* Dreamer: Calladren likes to day dream and have wandering thoughts. Be it about a song that has popped in his head or him imagining himself soaring adragonback, Calladren, during the many times that he is not focused on studies or training, will have his head in the clouds.

* Musical: Being loaned out to the Harperhall at the age of twelve, he is quite musical. The gitar is his favorite instrument and it was the only one that he brought with him when Calladren was Searched as a Candidate. He hopes that, one day, he'll be able to be the weyrharper and teach the little ones in the creche all about the learning songs.

* Curious: Calladren is a naturally curious boy. He frequently explores the caverns and corridors of the Weyr and has stumbled upon a few secret passageways. Whenever a subject or topic manages to catch his flighty attention, he engrosses himself in the studies of said topic, exhausting everything there is to learn about the subject.

The Magic Touch: Calladren will wear clothes finer than what the circumstance calls for, always looking his best. This, he pairs with an accompaniment of gitar music, as he almost always carries his instrument with him.


Mother: Lindra, Rider of Green Tazzerith [06.10.2546]
Father: C'ren, Rider of Brown Amsmith [02.03.2543]
Siblings: Larilla, Healer [17.04.2570]
NOTE ON THE LACK OF SIBLINGS: The frequent Threadfalls demanded that every Rider who was in a fighting wing defend the planet from the spores. Therefore, Lindra would have lost any children she carried in the early stages of development when she went between.

Children: None

Tell us a story...

* 05.10.2575 - 0 Turns - Fort Weyr The start of a typically cold winter at Fort Weyr. A green rider, Lindra, went into labor for the second time of her life, her weyrmate, C'ren, a brown rider and wingsecond, was by her side. Through the screaming and the seventeen hour labor, a little boy was born. He was named Calladren, after both of his parents.

* 13.03.2578 - 3 Turns - Fort Weyr The toddler Calladren tottered into the weyr's kitchens, following the smell of baking bread. The drudges and weyrfolk in the kitchens didn't notice the little one of three Turns. He found his way to one of the ovens and tried to grab a loaf of bread. Before the babe managed to burn himself, the Headwoman came around the corner and scooped him aloft and scolded him for misbehaving. Calladren didn't understand; he just wanted some bread.

* 01.01.2581 - 6 Turns - Fort Hold Calladren, now of six Turns, experienced his first End of Turn Celebration. Despite the dark times, the people of Fort Weyr and Fort Hold came together outside of Fort Hold to celebrate the new Turn. Both his mother, Lindra, and the Headwoman, who had taken a liking to the boy, gave Calladren several marks. He followed his nose, as per usual for the rascal, to a booth that sold bubbly pies. He had never had a bubbly pie before, so he purchased six. After his first taste, Calladren turned into a flurry of hands and pie, which resulted in a messy face and tunic. After some mild scolding and laughter from the Headwoman, she cleaned him up and bought him a new tunic.

* 05.08.2584 - 9 Turns - Fort Hold Larilla, Calladren's older sister, married a Healer, named Gillior at Fort Hold. Calladren and Larilla knew the Healer for most of their lives, growing up with the Healer since Calladren was very young. At first, he didn't approve of the wedding, because he felt that Gillior was taking his sister away from him. However, with some encouragement from his mother, Calladren's opinion turned around when he realized that he would be losing a sister but gaining a brother.

* 21.03.2587 - 12 Turns - Southern Winds Weyr After making the voyage to his new home of Fort Island, Calladren began his apprenticeship with the Harpers of the makeshift Harperhall. His voice, though pleasant, was not his primary instrument; he preferred the gitar. However, he had to trudge through the horrid vocal and pipe classes, just so he could play his gitar. His tutelage at the Harperhall made the transition to a whole new location bearable. He was not fond of the heat on the island, nor the new challenges that faced man and dragons alike.

* 26.07.2589 - 14 Turns - Southern Winds Weyr Calladren, during his apprenticeship at the Harperhall, was approached during a Search. The rider's numbers were low and they needed all the help they could get, especially from weyrfolk that had been apprenticed out to one of the crafts. With approval from his Master, Calladren left with the blue rider and made his way into the Candidacy.

Roleplay Sample

The sun, low on the horizon, painted the sky with hues of orange and red. The bustle of craftsmen on the docks was cheerful, for the red sunset meant calm seas tomorrow. There was some shouting from one of the Masterfishers, who hollered about loading nets on the deck and how they should be below deck for the night.

Calladren smiled. The scene was pleasant and was perfect for tune. He plucked gently at the strings of his gitar and added a gentle, sea-song accompaniment to the bustle. He noticed that a couple of the fishers, Apprentices by the looks of them, stopped momentarily to search for the jaunty song. Finding his silhouette propped on the collapsed caldera wall that made the cove's shield, they waved, before returning to work. He was a common sight here, as the this was the best place in the whole Weyr to view the sunset.

//If life could continue on like this, all will be perfect// he mused. //A good sunset, a relaxing breeze, and an inspiring bustle below.// But he knew that he was simply dreaming, as he'd gotten in trouble for frequently. What was the point of music if it did not let someone dream about the future? That question vexed him frequently. His Master kept fussing at him whenever he would lose focus in class. He shrugged with a smile, turning his eyes back to the sunset. He leaned his head against the rock wall behind him and continued to pluck at the strings, eyes closed.

"The little queen, all golden
Flew hissing at the sea,
To keep it back,
To turn it back
She flew forth bravely.

Flit Details

Date of Birth:
18.1.2590 9th Interval
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Octave is proportioned in a normal manner, with no notable abnormal measurements. The majority of his hide is a soft Cerulean Frost though he has several darker, Cerulean stripes that run from dorsal to ventral along the lizard's ribs.


Mind Voice: When Octave transmits images to Calladren's mind, they are always bright and cheery, with a heavy saturation of color.

Music - Octave loves music. When Calladren plays the gitar, pipes, or sings, the blue frolics through the air, turning dizzying circles and energetic flips. Occasionally, the blue sings along with the music.

Bathing - The blue fire-lizard does not see a bath as a way to get clean. He simply loves to splash around in the water, making ripples and waves across its surface. That and the deep bathing pools are blue, like him.

Herdbeasts - Herdbeasts tend to be stupid and not fun to play with. They are skittish around Octave and smell bad. The blue fire-lizard used to try to play with the dumb beasts, but now he screeches at them and stalks around just outside their rancid stench.

The Jungle - Calladren has noted that whenever Octave tells him about the jungle, the images are always dark. Its a huge departure from the rest of the 'lizard's images and always carries a feeling of dread and terror. Calladren can't get an exact reason as to why the 'lizard is terrified of the jungle, but he completely understands.
