Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
7.2591 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.

See previous events here!


Feel free to say hello, guesties! Registered members can request a colored name here.



Remember,
this holds no IC consequence and is only for fun.

Oarlen [ 04.04.2576 / Candidate ]
« on: June 02, 2015, 12:38:04 AM »

Play By:
TY KEEGAN SIMPKINS
Biography

First Name:
Oarlen [Oar-Lan]
Nicknames:
None
Date of Birth:
04.04.2576 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
Fort Hold
Job Before Search:
Oarlen had planned on apprenticing in Beastcraft, assisting in the restoration of foodstock to increase Fort Island's future sustainability, though he hadn't quite managed to seek out a journeyman crafter when he was searched, putting aside his crafter aspirations to instead join the ranks of the candidates at the Weyr.
Colour Preference:
A female Red has to be the top preference, though it only slightly trumped a Black dragon. However that is a personal preference and I would really prefer an admin chosen colour based on suitability because I adore surprises. I believe Oarlen's disjointed thought processes would match well with a Red, and the reason I would prefer a female is because it would challenge his personality a fair bit. He is heterosexual, but the byplay of dealing with a female dragons preferences would be thoroughly entertaining, and I'd like the opportunity to explore this. The preference of a Black dragon is due to it being a unique colour, but also its aggressiveness giving Oarlen something to focus on either to channel or attempt to subdue. I can see him thoroughly enjoying the fighting aspect of a Black Dragon.
As far as Oarlen's preferences, he wants a dragon that will keep him busy beyond the initial eighteen months of weyrling training. Not just busy as in regular duties, but a dragon rank that gives him enough to do that the only break is eating and sleeping. In his mind, a Bronze or a Black would be an ideal choice, in part because of the added responsibility that comes with the rank but mostly because he adores the idea of being partnered with one of the largest dragons in existence. He was adamant about becoming a queen rider in his toddler years, until he understood that it wasn't possible, and so any fantasies about riding dragons had been on the back of a Bronze or a Black, depending on what he had seen most recently.
Future Rider Name:
O'len
Husband/Wife:
Negative

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Oarlen is very particular about his appearance. He tries to clean himself twice daily, morning and night, and a third (or fourth) time whenever he has somewhere he needs to be. His hands are always clean, regardless of what work he had been doing earlier in the day and his hair practically glows with health, regardless of his latest haircut. His choice of clothing reflects this cleanliness, choosing garments that have a bit of colour to them and that don’t hang off his figure in unseemly ways. Unfortunately, he doesn’t actually possess many items of clothing, though is as particular about keeping them as clean as he keeps himself. He is capable of appearing messy and unkempt, but it’s usually for only a few candlemarks between finishing whatever it was that made him as such and finding his way to a water source and his reflection.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Oarlen’s mother and father were very practical in the upbringing of him and his sister. Both children knew of the threat that was thread and had been raised to be able to look after themselves should they find themselves orphans. Jenla ended up acting as a surrogate mother for Oarlen, and his relationship with her is far better than with his mother. Jenla made sure that Oarlen was inside and safe whenever a fall was due, often entertaining him with games of hide and seek deep within Fort Hold to ensure he felt safe and comfortable at all times. This meant, excepting incidents where the whole hold was affected, Oarlen was quite oblivious to the true terror of the 9th Pass. In stark contrast to what his Mother and Sister experienced.

Response to dragon colour mutations: The appearance of a Black dragonet was met by Oarlen with an overabundance of enthusiasm. Despite not having true aspirations to being a dragonrider, the idea that his chances of impressing to such a large dragon had increased filled him with joy. The Red Dragons were not met with quite the same awe, but he still found himself fascinated by their appearance. Dragons are dragons, after all.

Who are you...

Likes:
Jenla: He never feels out of place so long as his Sister is nearby, and she's one of the few people who know what he needs without question. It's nice to have someone who just gets you.
Joarna: She's his mother, and is brilliant at what she does. She may not have been as maternal as he wanted, but he would do anything in his power to seek even a glimmer of unbridled affection.
Firelizards: What's not to love about the miniature dragons? They’re (relatively) easy to come by, make bonds similar to dragons and even the smallest green can talk to you in some way shape or form. The mischievous ones add their own little twist to things and he loves following them to see where they're going, despite the destination not often being entertaining; or unknown due to a disappearance between.
Praise: Sure everyone likes to be praised now and then, but for Oarlen the feeling is akin to a rejuvenating nap. He wants to work hard, and he wants to complete his tasks quickly and well, and while he doesn’t need to be patted on the back to continue doing so, a simple comment about a job well done is enough to keep him going for at least another candlemark past the point where he would otherwise have had to go to sleep.
Activity: He needs to be moving constantly, and anything that facilitates this is welcome, from daily chores to running errands. He loves to move, and he loves to be useful-even if he does get a little dirty now and then. The more he does, the happier he is.
Food: From bubbly pies to bowls of tubers, Oarlen delights in the wonders of food, the smell, texture and taste all combine to moments of pure ecstasy. He may be clueless about how to cook, but he definitely knows how to eat.

Dislikes:
Waiting: His desire to always be moving is hindered by people who aren't as inclined. He can tolerate a minor delay, but any longer than a minute or two and he becomes twitchy, frustrated, and in cases where he's forced to wait for an extended period of time, can become snappy and rude, quite often giving up and walking off even if it means not finishing the task he had been given.
Being alone: He has always had his sister, at the very least beside him, so any situation where he finds himself isolated is incredibly daunting. He needs someone present, be they friend or foe to maintain his sense of self.
Felines: Just because they've been wiped off the face of Pern doesn't make Oarlen like them. Any stories pertaining to the beasts, big or small are met with outright disdain from the boy. He sees no relevance on their previous existence on Pern and is more than willing to list why that is so to anyone who thinks to praise the felines of old in his presence. His mother being one of those people.
Arrogance: Just because you're bigger, doesn't mean you are better. Oarlen cannot stand people who think they are better than others due to birthright, age, or rank. Being proud of your achievements is one thing, but boasting that goes above and beyond social norms makes him furious. Respect is something to be earned, not demanded, and he does his best to live by that. People who don't aren't worth a candlemark of his time.
Being Dirty: It's all well and good to do hard work and get a bit of muck on yourself, but when you're stuck in clothes covered in mud, sweat and, in some cases even blood, you're bound to get a little upset. For Oarlen, this attitude is tenfold. He can handle getting dirty during his day to day tasks, but he needs to be able to give himself a wash, however brief, once the day's tasks are done. If he has to go to meals without having made sure his skin was its normal colour, whatever the reason, he is bound to be in the foulest of moods.
Reading: While somewhat content practicing his letters and copying passages as part of his lessons, Oarlen finds reading to be tedious and irksome. Anything more than a line or two and he just will not read it.

Strengths:

* INTELLECT : Quick of wit and with a rudimentary understanding of most concepts, while young and undeveloped now, Oarlen has always been very quick to pick up concepts and his intelligence is evident to anyone who takes the time to get to know him.

* STRENGTH : His eagerness to be kept occupied has often led him into work that requires some physical strength, and despite being underdeveloped, physically, Oarlen is able to carry heavier objects than average for his age group.

* FLEXIBILITY : Oarlen is able to take up the mantle for whatever role needs to be filled. He accepts and will take on the responsibilities of a leadership role, just as easily as he will take on the duties of a subordinate. He does what he needs to do to get a job done, regardless of what role he needs to take to fulfil his duties.

* DEPENDABILITY : Regardless of the reason, Oarlen can always be depended on. He will work diligently to fulfil any requests you make of him as quickly as possible, no matter how great or small the task is without kicking up a fuss. As part and parcel, he also is able to keep secrets or sensitive information to himself, and can be counted on to do what is needed when it is needed.

* RECOLLECTION : Oarlen is able to recall varied information depending on his exposure to that information. Names of people he’s met, their positions and any links to other people he’s met tend to stick firmly in his mind. He also has a similar ability when it comes to information, while he does not seem to memorise numbers, snippets of information he has read or been told about often come to mind, the content of which varies depending on his interest at the time he came across it.

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

* CRITICISM : Oarlen takes most, if not all critique to heart, regardless of the meaning behind it. If something’s wrong, and someone’s having to explain to him why or how the thing was wrong, he takes a heavy emotional hit. On the same note, failure in anything he does hurts him greatly, and he’s inclined to work himself harder following failure of any sort.

* NEGATIVE : If there’s a way that something can go wrong, Oarlen will work on the assumption that it will go wrong. He doesn’t even give the positive side of a situation a thought. Everything that can go wrong, will go wrong, and his mood leans towards foul whenever his negativity is proven wrong. The sun is shining, no sign of danger, everyone commenting on how wonderful the day should be? Nope. It’s going to be horrible. The better the day appears, the worse it will be.

* JOARNA/JENLA : He owes his life to his mother and sister, and he wouldn’t be half the person he was without them, though Jenla is more to thank than his mother. As such, should anything happen to either woman, his loyalty to them will draw him away from his current role in the weyr. He will drop everything to go to them should they need him, and will lay his life on the line for theirs if required.

* OVERWORKING : Unfortunately being busy all the time means that there is little “personal” time, and more often than not, Oarlen will work himself to a point of exhaustion before even considering pulling back, and even then will more often than not just keep doing what needs to be done until someone forces him to stop. This leaves him tired and irritable, and the foul mood that comes from his state of exhaustion is easily apparent despite his desire to keep working.

* NAIVE : With not many turns under his belt, Oarlen is a little too open to other people’s opinions, particularly when they come to him on the backs of flattering words. He does not always understand the need to be distrustful of others, and can be talked into various kinds of mischief when pitched to him in a certain way.

Describe Yourself:

* FAITHFUL: ----- Oarlen owes his life to the residents of Southern Winds Weyr, but more than the rudimentary loyalty that ensues, Oarlen is unwaveringly certain of his future. If Southern Winds Weyr needs something,  be it labour or the very clothes off his back, Oarlen will give everything to assist in the development of the weyr, ever certain that their lives lay firmly in the palm of the dragonriders and crafters who work daily to make Fort Island a safe place.
His faithfulness transfers to relationships as well, and it is with some trepidation that he approaches the freedom of the general weyrfolk. Friendships are simple enough, though if he calls you friend, then for him it's a lifetime promise. It is only broken by a shattering of his faith in that person, he does take his time in establishing a friendship, so this isn't too much of an issue, however it is the physical relationships that make him concerned. He has never seen himself to be overly promiscuous, and all his dreams in the future involve settling down with one person for the rest of his life. The idea that a dragon could dictate when and with whom he has relations with unnerves him greatly.

* SOCIAL: ----- Oarlen wants to get to know everybody he will fire off tonnes of questions on first meeting you to establish anything he feels is important, and then will work hard to create and maintain a friendship through it. He may be a bit overwhelming at times, but he just really, really loves people.

* SCATTERBRAIN: ----- Unless he is completely enveloped by a task at hand, Oarlen often has multiple thoughts racing through his mind at the same time, he is constantly thinking about different things, and it often creates odd conversations. If he’s caught with one thought in particular, he feels obliged to share it with the first person he sees who he thinks will understand or be able to comment on it. This is to minimise the distractions that the stronger ideas cause. If he has to sit on a thought, he is unable to focus on the task at hand and thus is unable to complete it in the time he would be able to otherwise. Thus, taking a few moments to let the thought out instead of keeping it in his head saves him time in the long run.

* IMPATIENT: ----- He always has to be doing something, and if he’s not doing something, he must be getting ready to do something, if his time is being occupied by something irrelevant and overly time consuming, he will often dismiss whatever or whoever is taking up his precious working time and simply move on to doing something that is relevant to his task. This can show itself in a few different ways, from simply ignoring the irrelevant person or thing to outright excusing himself (not always politely) and returning to the task at hand. The horror that is having nothing to do is an entirely different story, and one that causes him to become frustrated and easily irritated. Forced bedrest, for example, is the thing of his nightmares.

* EFFICIENT: ----- The more he has to do, the more he needs to manage himself. Give him a quarter-mark or two to figure a chore out and he’ll go about it in the most productive way possible. If it takes him a full candlemark to do something, chances are it’d be difficult to get it done quicker, and if you have a quicker way to do it, Oarlen will be more than happy to listen to what you’ve got to say. Just don’t try to tell him it’s quicker if you skip some steps. Sure it may not seem important to tuck the furs around the edge of the cot, but if it’s part of the job, he’s going to want to do it.

The Magic Touch: Compliment his appearance – He’ll love you forever.

Family...

Mother: Joarna, Journeyman Healer, 2557.
Father: Lornley, Journeyman Fisher, 2550 deceased.

Siblings: Due to a difficulty conceiving, Oarlen has only one sibling, an Older Sister, Jenla, 2572.

Children:None.

Tell us a story...


* 2576, 0 Oarlen is born during threadfall, much to his mother’s chagrin. She’d been hoping to give birth when an influx of threadscored people wouldn’t be an issue.

* 2579, 3 The fuzzy memories of a rough but kind gentleman in his life is all Oarlen can recall about his father. He remembers his sister trying to comfort him while he cried, unsure of what had happened but aware that something was wrong. The memories may have been fuzzy but the death of his father, Lornley left a heavy weight on his heart. Lornley had gotten caught in a sudden storm while near the river, the subsequent flash flooding sweeping him away before he had a chance to react. He was found by a dragonrider further down the river a day later Joarna having to identify him to confirm his death. She throws herself further into her work, seeing her children only when she takes time to sleep. Jenla, 7 turns has gone from occasionally looking after Oarlen to an almost permanent position as his guardian.

* 2581, 5 Oarlen skips out on lessons to follow some older kids who had spoken about going outside. The idea of exploring the world beyond the confines of Fort Hold makes Oarlen giddy with anticipation and he is not as good at hiding his intensions as the other boys. Jenla realises what he was doing and follows, letting him reach the Hold's exit before scooping him up and scolding him for putting him in danger. Disgruntled and upset that his sister ruined his plans, he lashes out verbally, telling her his thoughts on her sticking her nose into everything he does. Being five, though, he does not come up with anything more hurtful than "You smell like wherry dung." Jenla still punishes him for his attempt, locking them both in their room and refusing to let Oarlen do anything except sit on his cot. A report reaches them about four young boys being caught up in the threadfall that occurred just before sundown. Mortified, Oarlen realises for the first time that he would more than likely be dead if his sister wasn't looking after him. He starts seeing Jenla as more mother figure than older sibling. Jenla begins to attend Oarlen's classes instead of her own, wanting to be certain that he doesn't try to repeat his attempt at "adventure." Oarlen doesn't mind and is quite pleased that she is there, working hard to impress her with his learning capabilities.

* 2584, 8 Jenla seeks an apprenticeship as a Harper, pleased that she can remain close to Oarlen but not able to be there for him every candlemark of every day. Oarlen responds by doing what he can to make life easier for his sister. He is old enough to understand how much she had sacrificed for him and wants to pay her back. His work ethic is growing day by day, and he tries hard to make sure he's working hard enough that Jenla can relax somewhat. He takes over as many of Jenla's chores as he can manage, freeing up her ability to learn and study.

* 2587, 11 The move to Fort Island is one of the few times Oarlen remembers being with his mother for more than just sleeping. For the first few sevendays his family consists of three people, not just Jenla and himself. Oarlen begins to consider what craft he wants to apprentice to, trying to find something that will assist the future of the residents of Fort Island. He starts taking an interest in Beastcraft, volunteering with the herders whenever he doesn’t have lessons to try and learn what he could while assisting as much as possible. Jenla and Joarna see him infrequently during the days, and only when he manages to get a break for sleeping or during one of his many stints to clean himself of the accumulated grime of the day.

* 2588, 12 Searched by a Blue dragon before he had been accepted as a Beastcraft apprentice, fixates on the idea and eagerly joins the rank of candidates. His sister is just as happy as he is, urging him to tell her what the life of a candidate is like and offering her guidance whenever he needed it. It would be the first time they were not sharing a room, and his first night in the candidate barracks was difficult. She cuffed him over the head when she found out the next day, and scolded him for being childish. As a result, he threw himself fully into candidacy and regaled her with stories of what he was doing every day that he saw her.

* 2589, 13 With Jenla’s help, this is the year that Oarlen lost his virginity, the desire to actually stand on the sands outweighing his inhibitions. It was nothing more than an obligation in his mind, and he does not dwell on it, though he can't shake the feeling that he had wronged his future partner in some way, despite there not being a future partner to worry over. Since then, he has properly stood at two hatchings without success, though he’s not too worried. Too many candidates had been left standing for him to be concerned and he had a decade to try, with more Gold Dragons being part of the Weyr than he had thought possible.

* 2590, 14 Present Day: Oarlen has settled in well, and is doing his best to keep busy. He struggles with the "rest and relaxation" part of the evening but tries to meet up with Jenla when he can. She usually gives him extra work to do if he's really floundering, though tries to push him to socialise. Since explaining it was his "duty" to know the people of the weyr, he's been more social, and isn't as reliant on Jenla's company. There have been several disasters since coming to Fort island, and Oarlen does his best to take it in stride, but any overwhelming emotions are dealt with quickly by Jenla, who seeks Oarlen out whenever something goes wrong, both to reassure him that she is fine, and to make sure she's with him should he be overly affected by the outcome, as was the case when one of the hatchings had the dragonets betweening. Joarna sees little of Oarlen unless he ends up needing a healer, but Jenla makes sure Oarlen is kept up to date of his mother's comings and goings.

”Why do you say that?” The harper apprentice arched an eyebrow, looking across at her younger brother in a familiar, slightly unnerving way that told him he needed a decent answer before she would let the topic go.

“Until a candidate is sexually active for the first time, they will not be permitted to stand at a hatching. Dragons are susceptible to the feelings of their riders in their juvenile stage and the emotions associated with one’s first sexual encounter can wreak havoc with their fragile minds… or something like that.” The words spilled out of his mouth without him taking a breath, a hand reaching up to brush the fringe out of blue eyes as he tried to keep eye contact with his sister. Oarlen’s face was going a delightful shade of pink at her query, and the only way to stop himself getting overly embarrassed was to try and bring the conversation around to something he understood better. It was his duty to lose his virginity, and if anyone could help him find a suitable partner, it was his sister.

Jenla laughed, a melodious noise that caused his face to darken again. “Oh honey,” she started, taking on the tone she reserved only for her little brother. “Have you thought to ask the other candidates? There has to be some girls your age among them, just waiting for their own chance to fulfil the requirements to stand?” she finished, amusement still dancing in her seafoam-green eyes.

“Well, yeah…” Oarlen mumbled, looking at his feet and shifting from side to side awkwardly. “But how do you… you know… Ask that sort of thing?” blue eyes met his sister’s briefly before he looked down again, hands entwined in one another in an attempt to maintain his composure.

That laugh again, a contagious one that caused Oarlen’s lips to curve upwards despite his nerves. “You just tell them, little brother. Tell them what you want and ask if they will accept you to their cot.” Her tone was riddled with laughter, but also a softer note that brought Oarlen great comfort. “Now go, Oarlen. Lunch is nearly done and you’ve got lessons to attend to.  Try your luck after dinner” the older girl winked then, and stood up, brushing the crumbs from her lunch off her skirts and giving Oarlen an affectionate push in the direction of his classes.

The boy nodded, straightening his clothes out himself before shoving the remains of the meatroll into his mouth and darting away from his sister. “Thanks, Jen!” He yelled after swallowing, hastily, sandals slapping the ground with each quick step. He had to get through dinner, but he was sure he’d overheard some of the newer candidates talking about finding someone to lose their virginity to. And if Jenla was correct (which she often was), than he should be able to overcome the hurdle that stood between them and the possibility of impressing his very own dragon.

It did take him a good sevenday to actually build up the courage to approach a female candidate around his age, though he was quite surprised when she accepted his proposition and, while not his finest hour, the act was accomplished and both Oarlen and the other candidate were able to stand at the hatching that occurred barely a sevenday after.

Flit Details

Name:
Freckles
Pronounced:
[Fre-cols]
Color:
Brown
Date of Birth:
20.01.2590 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Freckles, or Freckly Butt as Oarlen often calls him, is primarily a dark chocolate brown, the colour solid and uniform over his wings, neck and back. A lighter, colour, similar to a dark cup of klah covers his underside, trailing up the underside of his neck and creating a paler mask on his ace, reaching up to encompass both headknobs as well as completely covering his tail barely an inch from his butt. The name itself, though, comes from the lighter, almost white freckles that decorate his tail, rump, back legs and headknobs, a trait that will become more prominent the older he gets. As for size, Freckles is on the small spectrum, brushing the 120 centimetre  mark when stretched out from head to tail tip. He is lithe and agile though, well suited for flying green fire-lizards, and his aerial grace is not something to be scoffed at.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Freckles possesses a dusty mindvoice, soft and comforting, arousing a feeling akin to burrowing into the bed-furs after a particularly cold winter day. Safe and secure.

Likes:

* Gold Fire Lizards: It doesn’t matter that the chances of him actually catching a Gold is slim, when he’s old enough, if a gold flies, Faranth knows he’s going to chase, and do everything he can to try and outfly the Bronze’s giving chase. Heck, with his aerial acrobatics there is always the possibility he’ll get himself gold eventually – right?

* Talking: Also encompasses singing, to an extent. Basically anytime he can be heard, this fire lizard is likely to chatter away. Particularly if anyone decides to address him specifically. Primarily, particularly as a young fire-lizard, his chittering is reserved for Oarlen himself, most of the time the accompanying images making no sense to Oarlen but giving the fire lizard much pleasure, however the older he gets, the more likely he is to chat to passers-by, be they fire lizard, person or dragon, He just likes hearing his voice, really.

Dislikes:

* Having to Stay Away: Freckles needs to be around Oarlen. He needs to know that Oarlen is safe and that everything is OK. If he’s not with Oarlen, then he’s bound to be having a dragon sized temper tantrum wherever he’s wound up. Despite the mess that is often a result, Oarlen has simply made sure to set aside time to clean up the product of the fire lizard’s rampage while attempting to act annoyed despite enjoying the extra work.

* Overtraining: Sure it makes Oarlen happy to have him performing tricks such as betweening to a certain place in the candidate barracks, but Freckles has a life too, oftentimes it’s just about perching on and flying around Oarlen himself, but it’s tiring, and training that goes on for too long is irritating at best. He’d much rather be anchored to Oarlen’s arm than learning how to carry tiny messages to the candidate in the next room over.

Sweets' primary colour is a soft, cotton candy blue, with a dark blue stripe decorating his neck, from the base of his skull down to the top of his chest, the tip of each tail prong and banding his tail, giving it a striped appearance. Like his clutchbrother, Freckles, Sweets is on the small end of the spectrum, reaching only ninety centimetres when fully grown. He is stockier than the brown, an odd trait considering his colour, and can fly with stamina on par with the brown due to fractionally larger wings than proportional.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Stripe possesses a soft, gentle mind voice, with undertones reminiscent of a trickling stream.

Likes:
Water: Bathtime with Oarlen is the best time in Sweet's day, moreso because it happens multiple times. Sometimes, he is inclined to assist Oarlen with his scrubbing, though more often than not he simply enjoys the warm waters, dipping and diving in the water and making small waves. Thankfully, his bonded doesn't mind, and finds Sweets to be the easiest firelizard of his to keep clean, a nice trait considering he tends to prefer to bury himself beneath whatever shirt the boy tends to wear. It isn't just baths, however, any body of water is seen as fair game, and should you ever find Oarlen without him, he's more than likely managed to fine a suitable water source to play in.
Sweets: He may have been named after the similarity to his tail and a blue striped sweet, however it turned out to be a suitable name when his penchant for his namesake became known. He is not overly indulgent in sweets, however he is more than happy to mull one over for extended periods of time, as patient in the consumption of sweets as he is impatient when it comes to proper meal times.
Flattery: Sweets can be quite self conscious, often negatively so, and is quite shy when it comes to strangers, therefore, flattery goes a long way with him. Be it comments on his markings, his hide or even just a peculiar chirp, he is ever appreciative of any form of flattery and is more inclined to come out of his shell a bit when someone takes the time to comment on his positive aspects.
Dislikes:
Tunnelsnakes: One of the few times Sweets is likely to show aggression is in the presence of a tunnelsnake. He is often on high alert whenever the villains may show themselves, and is quick to try and chase them away, following them a good distance and, when possible, blasting them with flame if he's managed to get his paws on some firestone (a rare occurrence at best). His demeanor changes drastically when facing off a tunnelsnake, and the often shy, demure blue's whole stature will tense in the moments before giving chase.
Idle Chit-Chat: More often than not this is only relevant to his own chit-chat, with every trill, chirrup and whistle being for a purpose and not just to hear his own voice. He sometimes has a lot to say, but everything to be said should be done so without the need for idle chit chat, and Sweets will be sure to let it be known when he thinks a conversation is redundant. It has, occasionally extended to Oarlen's social life, the blue giving him the occasional scolding for yammering on about nothing when they could be doing other things... like bathing... again.

Name:
Canopy
Pronounced:
[Ca(t)-no-pee]
Color:
Green.
Date of Birth:
21.01.2590 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Her hide is ever changing, varying shades of green decorating it in no identifiable pattern. While it doesn't alter drastically, her patterning varies from turn to turn, lighter some turns than others, but always with the odd mottling, as if light were filtering down onto greenery from a thick canopy caused by treetops. As per Oarlen's luck, Canopy hatched small, and her full size is only brushing fifty centimetres, her build otherwise stereotypical of a green firelizard.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Reminiscent of various sizes of signal drums, booming and echoing inside the minds of those who hear her in varying tones.

Likes:
Leading: Canopy is a bossy firelizard, and the males in her fair tend to listen to her demands regardless of her lesser rank. While as dedicated to Oarlen as her fair-mates, she does tend to take on a leadership role, directing the males to do what they otherwise would choose not to, receiving a physical reminder of exactly why they need to listen if they try to fool around.
High Places: Rather than perching on one of the free limbs of her bonded, Canopy much prefers keeping to the heights. She is never far from Oarlen, keeping him in her line of sight at all times and occasionally interacting with "her boys" to ensure they stay on task (whatever that may be), though always as high up as she can go, sometimes going so far as to cling to a small overhang on the weyr walls if there's nothing else.
Broadcasting: While she makes it clear of who she is addressing, Canopy is not a quiet 'lizard, broadcasting her thoughts to all within earshot without care for being overheard. It has gotten her extra food or attention, and so she has never felt the need to keep her thoughts quiet in case she misses out on the opportunity for more.
Dislikes:
Rank: By some cruel twist of fate, Canopy was born a green, not a gold, the lowest ranking of firelizards and it is not something that she accepts easily. She can pout for candlemarks after being ordered to do something by a higher rank, and is lucky that she has such easygoing fair mates, else she would be a very miserable green.
Green Fire Lizards: Being of equal rank, the chances of being able to control other fire lizards of her own colour are slim, and so she does what she can to avoid them altogether. In cases where she ends up forced to confront a green, her dislike is solely dependent on whether or not she can get the upper hand. Increasing when she cannot, and decreasing into nonchalance when she finds she can get through.
Being Corrected: The order of rank is Oarlen, herself, Freckles then Sweets. As far as Canopy is concerned, anyway. Being corrected means she was wrong, and she does not like being wrong. Unless it's come straight from Oarlen himself, she is not going to react nicely to fire lizard, human or dragon who decide to tell her she is wrong. Of course, unless the "insubordination" isn't backed by rank, chances of her retaliating in any way that the other party would actually be aware about are slim. Doesn't make her any less annoyed about it.

Name:
Queen
Pronounced:
Queen
Color:
Gold
Date of Birth:
06.08.2590 9th Interval.
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Apart from being very obviously Gold Queen doesn't have very much at all in the way of distinguishing markings. She's a yellow gold, with pale, almost white highlights that gives her a glossy appearance no matter how long it's been since she was last oiled and her metallic glean leans more to a soft shine as opposed to a glittering sparkle. Unlike the other flits in her faire, Queen is as large as a she can get, growing quickly to her full size. She can often be found draped down Oarlen’s back when the boy can tolerate her weight, otherwise she tends to keep a suitable distance away so she can simply watch, and protect when and if necessary.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Soft and sweet, Queen manages to be heard without trying, with a knack for clear images and an ability to pick up a word or two of significant importance. She is happy to converse with those who address her, and doesn't tend to muddle things as much as Freckles might, nor hold back on her words as Sweets does. She has a good understanding of tone, and will adjust her own to suit the urgency of her message as and when necessary.
Likes:
Canopy: The green firelizard doted on her egg as if it were her own, and acted as much a mother as Oarlen himself. Her affection towards the far smaller firelizard is the reason she doesn't seem to lead Oarlen's faire, preferring to let Canopy believe she has total control of the other flits in their little family. She lets the green mother her as much as she wants, and it's a trait that won't disappear no matter how old she gets. It's a sweet relationship the two have, and Queen works hard to give the green little reason to be jealous or intimidated by her.
Praise: Queen is a rather empathetic beasty, and does her best to make sure she pleases everyone around her. She's easy to train due to her love of praise, and will go above and beyond what is expected of her to try and get those extra kind words. She wants to be noticed for her ability to achieve what you want her to achieve, preferably before you even know you want it, and requires no other incentive than the reward of being told she's done well.

Dislikes:
Bullies: Perhaps because she is a Gold and chooses not to push others around, she does not take kindly to when others, firelizards or not bully others into submission. It's perhaps the only clash she has with Canopy, and the only time she counters what the green might say or do. She'll get better and more subtle at it, but it's caused the green to outright ignore her a few times while she was growing up. Beyond that, she'll be the first to protect another she thinks is being treated unfairly, though her understanding of such things is limited.
Flights: Queen's personality changes drastically around a flight, and from the first time she rises it's not a feeling she relishes. She is irrational and moody, and chases away any firelizards that try to get close to her. Canopy will be disgusted and the aftermath is rather surly for all three flits in her faire. She doesn't like the idea that she can just be grabbed out of the air by another male all willy nilly, and will try and fly at a time where only a few flits can give chase. When her clutch is laid, she tends to allow Canopy to care for them instead, inclined to destroy the eggs if the male feels it's their prerogative to not allow the green to pretend it's her own clutch. She keeps a close eye on them, of course, but she trusts the green more than most of the males who end up snatching her from the air.

As large as she is, Queen does prefer to be attached to Oarlen in some way shape or form. In their spare time, she'll have managed to drape over him – though it's hard to find him under her bulk when she does.
