Guest Info Plot & Events


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: Slender and tall, A’srian spent much of his adolescent years trying to figure out how to make his body work in tandem. Now that he’s grown into himself a bit he could be described as ‘willowy’, though he lacks the easy grace that tends to be implied with the term. A’srian was blessed with stylishly uncooperative hair. He’s never managed to deal with it long enough to let it grow to a respectable length to be tied back, always losing his patience with bits falling into his eyes long before any real progress is made. He mostly leaves it to its own devices and lets it do what it will--luckily that turns out well more often than not. It’s a pretty average, ruddy brown streaked with lighter brown from the sun, a shade or two darker than his eyes. Thick, expressive eyebrows make it difficult for him to keep his feelings off his face, and he’s landed himself in hot water for it before. His dress is pretty typical of a Weyrbred individual, though now that he’s Impressed he’s taken to experimenting a bit with personal touches. Some turn out to be impressively creative, others...not so much. He’s got his fair share of scars, though none have a particularly memorable story--most are the result of a clumsy childhood and awkward adolescence.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Until the last Turn or so, A’srian hadn’t know what ‘peace’ meant. Honestly he’s feeling a little more at odds with a clear sky over his head than he ever was with the threat of Thread looming over it.

Response to dragon color mutations: Having Stood at a clutch sired by said black dragon, A’srian’s...carefully optimistic, at the very least, about the usefulness of the new colors and tries not to fall victim to the superstitious ideas that others seem intent on.

Who are you...

Likes:
Physical Activity: A’srian’s first instinct when frustrated is to work it off through physical activity. Whether it’s a refreshing run around the Bowl or a series of furious push-ups wherever he happens to be. Other times he’ll do it just because he simply enjoys being active.

Quiet: Everyone needs their down-time, and A’srian prefers to enjoy his in relative silence. He doesn’t need to be alone, necessarily, but rambunctious companions tend to be a little too much for him after a long day.

Learning: A’srian’s always had a passion for knowledge, and if he has one regret in life it’s that he was born into a situation and a family that never really gave him the opportunity to learn as much as he could have.

Honesty: He’d rather know someone made a mistake and that they were trying to fix it than not know anything at all and have said mistake develop a domino effect.

Dislikes:
Klah: It never tasted quite right to him and age has yet to change that, despite what everyone continues telling him.

Arrogance: A’srian will be the first to admit that he’s not free of arrogance himself, but he can’t quite help having a short temper with someone whose ego clashes with his own.

Small Children: Less a genuine dislike and more a deep sense of discomfort when confronted with the prospect of being responsible for a small child. His own daughter made him a little nervous until she proved herself remarkably resilient and not prone to crying often.

Strengths:

* CONFIDENT : Growing up as the son of a bronzerider certainly didn’t leave A’srian with any confusion about where his place in life was. Whether he’d Impressed a bronze or not, he knows how important dragonriders are to the survival of Pern, even if it still seems a little surreal to him to--finally--be a part of that.

* DETERMINED : To the point of stubbornly continuing a project long beyond the point where everyone’s already given up, A’srian enjoys the feeling of a job well-done, and tries his best to feel it as often as he can. It’s part of why not Impressing for so many Turns rankled so within him.

* LOYAL : Partly due to the situation across Pern, A’srian can hardly be accused of lacking in loyalty. The other part is simply the way he is, always committing himself fully to any relationship he comes into, whether it be social or personal.

* ELOQUENT : Listening to his parents talk as a child gave A’srian a bit of a head-start. His father had always been particularly well-spoken, and while they didn’t spend every hour together, there was enough time to pick up a thing or two. It’s one of the few inheritances from his father that A’srian truly values.

* HUMOROUS : While not everyone understands his sense of humor--it’s a bit frank and sometimes hard to tell when he’s joking and when he’s being honest--A’srian certainly has one, as well as an impeccable sense of when an offhanded joke might prove to lighten the mood in a tense situation. He’s certainly not infallible, though, and has been known to get a nice sock in the nose for his troubles.

Weaknesses:

* DELIBERATE : A’srian is very careful about everything he does. His words and actions tend to be well thought-out, and he does his best to measure his options when he has the luxury to do so. This care tends to be mistaken for slowness, and people are prone to taking advantage of him for it.

* ARROGANT : Ironically enough, A’srian isn’t above a touch of arrogance. It was basically bred into him, as his father was no stranger to the feeling. Being the man’s last hope of passing on his legacy--apparently one son Impressing a brown and dying heroically protecting Pern from Thread wasn’t enough--didn’t help anything when it comes to A’srian and arrogance, and it’s gotten markedly worse since Impressing Cosilanth. His bond with the bronze only proved to cement his conviction that he was better than non-dragonfolk, and if there was a little ego-stroking going on between the two on the side, well, they were still young.

* INEXPERIENCED : Still young and prone to the fickleness of youth, A’srian’s biggest struggle has been knowing when enough is enough. He’s rather quick to rush to the defense of his dragon (as if he needed it at all) and basically anyone else he feels has been treated unfairly.

* AMBITIOUS : Now that he’s got something to prove--being worthy of the bronze dragon he’s now closer to than any other living thing--A’srian is prone to getting in a little over his head.

Describe Yourself:

* GENTLE: A'srian is surprisingly gentle, even sensitive--but only in the way that a rock is not.

* PATIENT: He's more patient than even he realizes--more physically patient than he is mentally. He'll sit somewhere for hours without even realizing it, but he can't do it without something to think about or work on.

* CRITICAL: Even if he’s too prideful to admit it out loud, even A’srian has moments where he’s too hard on himself.

* RESPONSIBLE: Rian's ridiculously responsible, as long as that responsibility fits in with his own personal intentions. He will flat-out refuse to go "screw around" with his friends until he's done with everything that he's supposed to be doing that day. Rian tends to be mistaken for someone who is Turns older than he is, primarily through the way he conducts himself, both with his equals and his betters.

* PERSONABLE: He's well-liked by (almost) anyone who meets him, and is loyal to everyone, even if they don't strictly deserve that loyalty. It takes a lot to turn A’srian against you.

The Magic Touch: He’s got a frankly irritating habit of running his hands through his hair and mussing it up when he’s concentrating or worried--particularly unhelpful when he’s just finished oiling a dragon.

Family...

Mother: Luria, b. 2550 Impressed 2564 (green Cath), Southern Weyr. Deceased
Father: A’ran, b. 2538 Impressed 2550 (bronze Tanith), Eastern Weyr.

Siblings: Half-brother S’ran, b. 2560, Impressed 2572 (brown Barrith), Fort Weyr. Deceased

Children: Dasria, age 4

Tell us a story...


* 2570, 0 Aisurrian is born to A'ran of bronze Tanith and Luria of green Cath. Ultimately, he's the youngest of their brood and the only one to survive to the conclusion of the 9th Pass.

* 2571, 1 Fall of High Reaches, Aisurrian's family flees to Fort Weyr

* 2582, 12 Ais Stands at his first hatching but walks away unbonded. Much to his dismay, the same trend repeats for the next four Turns.

* 2586, 16 Early summer; a Queen of High Reaches Flies and Aisurrian is treated to the backlash of that, ends up spending the night with a young greenrider named Daea, who turns up pregnant. Aisurrian is horrified--partly at himself, and partly at his horrible luck.

* 2587, 17 Spring; Daea goes into labor, 17 hours later a little girl is born. She's named Dasria. Big Move to Southern Winds Weyr. Aisurrian is both pleased and terrified, and he’s convinced that those seventeen hours are the longest he ever has or ever will be through. He still sees himself as something of a child, so he can’t quite imagine putting himself in the position of ‘father’ quite yet. Daea is several Turns older, knows how parenthood works a little better, and to Aisurrian’s great relief she’s more than willing to prod him in the right direction when he needs it. It was odd to find himself so attached to what he initially thought of as a shapeless little blob that didn’t do a lot but sleep and cry, but that attachment has only grown stronger in the intervening Turns. It's not long after this that the discovery of Fort Island and the move to Southern Winds Weyr occurs, and Aisurrian finds himself immensely grateful for the presence of his daughter and both the presence and support of his parents.

* 2588, 18 Luria and Cath are attacked by Hunters. Cath panics and goes between due to her injuries, taking Luria with her. The news hits Aisurrian hard; it’s the first time he’s lost someone close to him since the 9th Pass ended, and he’d started to inch towards hopeful that maybe he’d get lucky, maybe things like that wouldn’t happen to him. It wasn’t a very pleasant reality check.

* 2589, 19 Aisurrian Impresses bronze Cosilanth at Kalestath and Neisoth's first clutch. He’s surprised, but it’s almost more due to the fact that he was involved in such an interesting Hatching than anything else--now, it feels like Impressing Cosilanth when he did was kind of a given. In retrospect, he can’t quite imagine anything else happening.

Honestly, he hadn’t been expecting much. Another long wait with his heart in his throat before it sinks all the way down to his boots when the last of the newly-hatched Weyrlings walk off the Sands. The last thing he’d expected to happen was what actually had happened--and he supposed that was pretty typical. It was more than his own Impression, though--more black dragons, and three red ones besides. Red! He was only sorry that he missed their hatching. It wasn’t long after his arrival on the Sands, out of breath and a little disoriented, that the excitement ramped up yet another notch, and he was left staring as the two black dragonets raced across the Sands. They held his attention for several long moments--long enough, as it turned out, for him to miss the next dragonet to vacate its shell.

It wasn’t until another candidate several feet away gasped that he turned, letting out a startled yelp as the creature came near before it was--literally--on top of him. Despite the hatchling’s size Aisurrian hadn’t been expecting it to be quite so heavy, so when it stumbled into his legs he’d promptly been knocked on his ass.

He’d been left propped up on his elbows, staring at the bronze dragonet with wide eyes as it sat at his feet, tail curled primly about its feet as if it hadn’t just knocked down a near-fully grown man seconds before. I did not think you would fall over so easily. It--he--Cosilanth--tilted his head. I called, but you did not listen. So I came to you. To his credit, the bronze had the decency to look a little abashed, and was quiet long enough for Aisurrian to shut his gaping mouth and regain some semblance of composure.

A'srian, your Cosilanth is hungry.

Dragon Details

Name:
Cosilanth
Color:
Bronze
Date of Birth:
29.06.2589 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kalestath
Clutch Father:
Neisoth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 37.8
Mature Height: 7.65
Mature Wingspan: 60

General Appearance...

He’s on the larger end of the bronze spectrum, and rather well-proportioned in adulthood. As a weyrling his wings tend to outgrow the rest of him. While his color has certainly gotten a little less vivid since his hatching, Cosilanth is still a very definite pinkish bronze. He’s got some darker dappling all over his body, not as apparent as a newly-hatched dragonet but gradually becoming darker as he matures.

Personality...

Mind Voice: A little intense at first, but oddly melodic and he’s pretty good at making his words sound reasonable regardless of whether his suggestions really are or not (of course they are, he’s a bronze, thank you very much, he’s always reasonable). He doesn’t talk directly to other riders often.

Likes:
Flirting: Much to A’srian’s dismay, Cosilanth is a rather merciless flirt. It seems to come naturally to him, as he doesn’t spend a lot of time formulating his words, and sometimes he does it just to get under his reserved rider’s skin. These occasions are usually prefaced by a warning, however, shared between dragons--just so no one gets the wrong idea. He’s actually rather picky when it comes to serious flirtation.

Swimming: Not something he gets the opportunity to do very often, for obvious reasons, but Cosi always finds great pleasure in swimming. It drives A’srian up the wall with worry, and his rider rarely joins him on his adventures despite his cajoling. A’srian has shared memories of the lake at High Reaches Weyr with him once or twice.

Socializing: Whether there’s intent behind it or not, Cosilanth is likely to strike up a conversation with another dragon--or, through a reluctant A’srian, with their rider--whenever the mood catches him

Dislikes:

Children: Children tend to make Cosilanth a little uncomfortable, mostly due to their diminutive size compared to him. He’s rather afraid he’ll step on one.

Boring conversations: He’ll literally walk away. A’srian actually finds it rather amusing and is not above encouraging the bronze to walk away when one or both of them have ended up in a conversation they regretted.

Downtime: While he can put on a decent show of being incredibly lazy, Cosilanth doesn’t enjoy those days where they don’t have a lot to do. Luckily they tend to be few and far between.

Strengths:

* SENSE : Cosilanth is definitely the one who keeps his cool better between dragon and rider. A’srian’s prone to fits of pride and irritation, and while Cosi definitely gets pulled in, as he gets older and starts to learn the ins and outs of his rider’s mind he gets better at navigating it and tempering his rider.

* CREATIVITY : While his thinking is still very linear, Cosilanth tends to approach things from a different perspective than is typically expected.

Weaknesses: 2+ (list form and please give at least a bit of explanation to each)

* OVERCONFIDENCE : Cosilanth has a tendency to be a little too confident for his own good. He’s always the first to volunteer the pair for new activities, usually before A’srian gets a chance to put in a word edgewise.

* POSSESSIVENESS : Cosi is prone to fits of possessiveness that, at first, are frankly shocking to A’srian. He takes a good deal of coddling once his feathers get ruffled, especially when it comes to A’srian.

Flit Details

Name:
Prim
Pronounced:
like the word
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
09.06.2590 9th Interval
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

This little lady is average sized, 0.7m long, but will definitely be dwarfed by Cosilanth when he gets to his full size. Sitting on his shoulder, she’ll look like a leaf that has landed on him. Her swirling pattern makes her hide an interesting pattern of light greens, making it look like her colours might actually be moving.

Personality...

Mind Voice: This little green is basically mute, whilst she doesn’t begrudge those who are chatterboxes, she chooses not to exude any noises, except in the most dire of circumstances. This means that she is incredibly good with image recognition and communication. Prim and proper, with a side of reserved would be a good way to describe her, she'll never be one to steal the spotlight, but she won't hesitate to judge others either.

Likes:
*STORMS – The perfect flight takes place in the middle of a storm, that is her opinion.
*WORK – She likes to have something to do, and whilst this little green doesn’t need to be doing something to be having fun, she enjoys helping out, as every good firelizard should.
*A’SRIAN – He is her bonded, and she is his, they will be there for each other forever, and she intends to show him that.
*COSILANTH – Believing that his possessiveness is what is good and proper, she will immediately take a shining to the dragon, and hope that he will do the same.

Dislikes:
*EXTENDED CONTACT – Not one to look after her clutch, nor one to stay attached to a mate, she doesn’t like to be clingy.
*LAY-ABOUTS – It’s not a flits job to be pampered by her bonded, they are supposed to be equal in their duties, her there for him, and he for her.
*ARGUMENTS – She doesn’t particularly liked raised voices or anger, there must be a way to reason things out without the need to go screaming at each other.
