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.

Welcome!

Hello and Welcome!


http://southernwindsweyr.net/Images/news icon copy.png We are a mature, 9th Interval AU Pern. We've destroyed almost the entire planet in a catastrophic event. While we feature 2 new mutations, we stick pretty close to canon. We've Ranks, roles, and positions for just about anyone who wants to get involved, with a relaxed community. Play and post at your own pace. Swing by and say hello!

Registration?
Southern Winds uses a subaccount system to distinguish between Players and their Characters. So REGISTER with your Player Account Name and the admin will assign you your Character Subaccount once your character is approved!

Southern Winds is a Mature Roleplay. This means we allow for sexual, violent content that would be found in a struggling, 9th Interval Pern. Sex is common place in the Weyr and terrible deaths are no stranger here. As such, our players should be 18+. These themes are to be handled maturely at all times.

Regards,
Southern Winds Weyr

Syrena [ 16.03.2572 / Candidate ]
« on: September 26, 2018, 05:37:05 PM »

Play By:
Amanda Seyfried
Biography

First Name:
Syrena
Nicknames:
Sy, Syre, Syra
Date of Birth:
16.03.2572 9th Pass.
Place of Birth:
Fort Hold.
Job Before Search:
Healer Apprentice
Color Preference:
Blue: Who can say no to a blue? I feel like blues work with just about anyone who has anything extroverted about them at all. They're versatile and so is Syrena.
Brown: Unlike the numerous similarities followed by the one or two differences in personality when it comes to reds, Syrena has very little in common with browns except for being easygoing and good natured ... which makes the same interesting parallel. A brown would be a good counter to her personality.
Gold: Like herself, golds are loyal and hardworking. A gold would match her personality as well as 'toughen her up' a little so she is not so blindly trusting. She has the potential to be a great leader, if given the chance to.

Essentially I guess I'm saying 'not green.'

Future Rider Name:
Syra
Husband/Wife:
Wendin, deceased

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Syrena’s bright disposition is nearly always visible in her brilliant eyes and a sunshine-y smile tends to be ever in possession of her features. Though not picky about her clothes, she tends to shy away from anything that looks at all solemn, preferring lighter colors. She dresses as flowy and 'fun' as she can get away with while still being efficient for working, and prefers to keep her wavy blonde hair down.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Syrena was born near the end of the 9th Pass and as such has little to no memory of it. However, hearing the stories is enough to give her pause and make her generally sunny disposition cloud a little bit.

Response to dragon color mutations: Syrena thinks the Black Dragons are, aside from being beautiful creatures, a helpful addition to the colors -- they seem to know what to do with the Hunters, for all that they're a little bit strange. If there was going to be one new dragon in response to the ... different ... new environment, why not two? The reds certainly frightened her when they hatched, but she's come to terms with them and finds them intriguing.

Who are you...

Likes: Syrena likes any kind of domesticated animal. From her youth she has admired the diversity of all the different creatures that inhabit Pern, viewing it as people's job to take proper care of all the animals that have been entrusted to their care.

She loves spending time with her brother, B'nyn. Even though their personalities are so different, she grew up with him and is one of the few that understands him. Even just sitting in silence with him is better company than talking to certain others of the Candidates.

Sun showers and rainbows always lift her spirits. They symbolize to her the fact that even when things seem gloomy, the light can fight it's way through.

She just likes people in general and enjoys observing and engaging the uniqueness of each person. The fact that of all the people to have ever been born on Pern, no two have ever been the same, is a marvel to her.

Dislikes: Syrena can’t abide a liar. If someone can’t tell her something, they need to admit it to her face, not lie. She sees it as an indicator of their estimation of her if they’re willing to lie to her about something.

She automatically distrusts anyone who abuses animals or sees them as nothing more than tools. How someone treats those beneath them is an indicator of who they are inside, even more so with how they treat animals.

People who get easily upset annoy her, even her brother sometimes. People make mistakes sometimes and need forgiveness and encouragement to do better. Life is too short to hold grudges. Admittedly anger is justified in some circumstances, but not many.

Anyone who messes with B'nyn earns an immediate place in her dislike book. If they have an honestly justified reason she might let it pass. She has no patience for those that would joke at his expense.

Strengths:

* Empathic: She connects on a basic level with people who will open up to her, understanding their point of view and struggles, and genuinely caring. Once you’re her friend, her shoulder is always there to cry on. She is also genuinely glad when people succeed in life.

* Resourceful: She lived a fair piece of her childhood without a home. As such she had to make do with what she and Brehnyn could scrounge from what other people viewed as trash. She’s never really lost this ability and could likely survive if she was ever on her own again.

* Loyal: When she commits to someone or something she will never turn back, she’s in it for better or worse. No amount of persuasion or danger will dissuade her.

* Hard worker: She’s no shirker, if she’s given a job she will stick with it and do it to the best of her ability. Cutting corners is not something she does. Because of this, she would have issues delegating should the need ever arise.

* Intuitive: She has a strong gut instinct and it’s often right. Whether about people or curses of action, those who know her know that if she has a 'strong feeling' about anything, you might want to listen.

Weaknesses:

* Involved: Syrena tends to have trouble remaining objective in most situations. She’s just too swayed by emotion and tends to take sides too quickly and commit to them too strongly. She has in past had occasion to look back with regret at times she took the wrong side without knowing any better.

* Bigger inside than out: Even when facing someone who could be potentially dangerous she doesn’t know how to step back and hold her tongue. She’s never afraid to scold someone for wrong behavior; size doesn’t scare her, even when it should.

* Open: Syrena gives people her trust too quickly. Having an optimistic view of people, she sees them as trustworthy until proven otherwise. This can cause her to get hurt quite often.

* Lightweight: Syrena is rather petite. Not weak, or malnourished, just small in general.

* B'nyn: Her Achilles heel. If he was ever hurt or killed she would absolutely lose it.

Describe Yourself:

* Optimistic: The sun will keep on rising and setting no matter how hard life gets from her point of view. In the end, everything will turn out alright. She has enough faith in people to believe that they will keep on surviving no matter how bad things get.

* Caring: She has a heart for any creature in need of comfort or healing, and will help in any way possible to alleviate suffering. This is why she found herself training to be a healer.

* Spunky: Life’s dips can’t get her down and neither can nasty people. Not taking nonsense from anyone, she’s often known to have a quick retort at her lips, softened only by a mischievous smile.

* Helpful: If anyone ever needs help with chores or otherwise, she’s there. Work isn’t a bad thing from her perspective, but she understands it is from other’s, so she’s happy to help wherever she can.

* Fun: A happy person in general Syrena can be just fun to be around and knows how to let her hair down, relax, and have a good time.

The Magic Touch:
Deep down, Syrena has romantic feelings for B'nyn -- but she's long since come to terms with the fact that it's best that nothing come of it. It would be too much of a change to their relationship and she's happy the way things are; someday maybe there will be a better love for her, and maybe not. She allows herself to love him, but no longer to dwell upon what could have been, letting it be a quiet love that's present but not interfering or influencing her actions.

Tell us a story...

* 2572, Newborn Syrena is born to Syrnen and Litha, a wher trainer and a drudge from Tillek Hold. Litha dies a few months after giving birth to Syrena from an illness contracted during pregnancy.

* 2577, 5 In the cramped and overcrowded space of the Fort Hold, Syrnen gets into a dispute with a group of men over their treatment of a wher. Things escalate and they kill him, leaving Syrena an orphan. The men are brought to account and exiled from Fort, sent to die in the wastes.

* 2578, 6 Having survived 6 months on her own by begging, Syrena meets a fellow orphan named Brehnyn and they become fast friends. Deciding to adopt each other as brother and sister, they help each other survive for several moths before they’re taken in by a kindly older man named Prain and his wife Kelien who are unable to have children.

* 2583, 11 Brehnyn joins the Smith Crafthall. Syrena doesn’t see him quite as much, and misses him every moment he’s away.

* 2584, 12 Now old enough to be accepted into a Crafthall, Syrena joins the Healers, eager to work with just as much dedication as Brehnyn. It’s difficult work, but she loves being able to help people, even if it’s in a roundabout way. As the topic of marriage is brought up quite often now, she finds herself uncomfortable thinking about it. It’s at this time that she has to face the fact that she really doesn’t want to marry anyone other than Brehnyn.

* Late 2584, 12 Of officially marriageable age, Prain and Kelien begin to pressure Syrena to get married. Terrified to admit she loves Brehnyn, she begs them to give her a year to find someone other than the match they preferred. Someone of her own choosing. Loving her like a daughter, they begrudgingly agree.

* 2585, 13 Prain has a heart attack and dies. His wife Kelien can no longer support them, and knows with a heavy heart that she will have to send them away. She tells Syrena she must marry the man of their choosing and Syrena, heartbroken over the loss of a man she adored as a father and guilt stricken over having disputed with him over the matter, agrees, becoming the wife of a Beastcrafter named Wendin. Brehnyn lives on his own, but visits often. His steadiness throughout this period is all that keeps her going.

* 2585, 13 Despite her desire to become a mother, it seems that Syrena and Wendin cannot produce children. Syrena is disappointed, having hoped for the solace of a child in a relationship without real love.

* 2586, 14 Wendin is killed by falling Thread. The tragedy hurts Syrena more than she thought it could and she mourns Wendin’s loss. He may not have loved her, but he always treated her gently, and with respect. Brehnyn, who had as of late grown distant, returns to her and takes up even more strongly the role of older brother. There is a certain joy she feels that they are once more struggling through life together.

* 2587, 15 Amid much excitement, Fort Island is discovered and over the course of a year the entire population of Fort Hold and Weyr have migrated to their new home. Life is new and exciting, everywhere there are new places to explore. Not that there aren’t new dangers.A Bluerider finds Brehnyn and Syrena and seeing potential in both, Searches them as Candidates. For Syrena it’s a dream come true. Though she loves caring for the infirm, the idea of one day becoming totally bonded with another creature in soul and spirit is wondrous to say the least. She makes a silent promise to her unborn dragon that she will study to the best of her ability, so that when the day finally comes for them to meet, she will never let it down.

* 2587, 15 Later that turn, Brehnyn finds Niskyleth on the Sands, becoming B'nyn; Syrena is left standing. She's initially disappointed, discouraged and a bit hurt (as well as shaken by yet another separation from her brother and best friend) but rebounds with hope and conviction that she wouldn't have been Searched unless there were a dragon for her someday. And despite being initially terrified by Neisoth, she's pleased when she finds that B'nyn has befriended the black dragon's rider.

* 2590, 18 B'nyn has finished weyrlinghood and found a spot in Prairie Wing, and his friend S'bok is now Weyrleader. Syrena remains a Candidate, though she occasionally considers meeting her brother's desires and returning to healing if she can find someone to marry -- she still daydreams of having children, but is determined to continue standing as long as it feels right and isn't about to have a baby outside of a marriage.

---

Syrena looks up from her work hide and sighs, watching the rain fall outside the open window of the candidate barracks. The summer had been hot so far and the rain only promised to make the next day even more muggy and exhausting. Shaking her head, she will brush an errant strand of blond hair back behind her ear before hunching back over her hide.

The last hatching had been a nightmare... so much chaos only to leave her alone again on the sands. She knew she had to wait for just the right one... but waiting was becoming harder and harder as she watched B'nyn really hit his stride as a wingrider. 'Oh... don't walk down that path again, you idiot. Your barrack work is not going to do itself if you start getting all depressed again...' She whispers to herself as Willa lands on the desk to bat at the corner of the hide.

She will wave a hand at the green and laughs as she almost jumps off the table in surprise. "Willa... DO you have to be such a bother when it is raining? I am trying to work here... " Goes back to her work as the green cheeps at her before moving to rest on her lap. Her hand will absently move to stroke the creature as she delves back into her learning, the steady drum of the rain on the window making it easier to get lost in her learning... and run from the feelings she was going going to let surface again.

Flit Details

Name:
Willa
Pronounced:
Wyll-ah
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
20.01.2590 9th Interval
Place of Birth:
Southern Winds Weyr

General Appearance...

Willa is on the large size for a green, measuring up to a small brown.  She is a dark green with lighter green touches on her face and at the claws on her wings.  She has light green speckles coming from her face and along her neck.  She has a large wing span which will allow her to fly for longer periods, but she will not have the stamina of a gold. 

Personality...

Mind Voice: Generally a quiet, gentle voice -- but there is a definite hint of steel at times. She's one for repeating others' words for agreement or emphasis, but not generating her own.

Likes:
Sunning: There is nothing quite like finding a spot in the sun and letting the rays warm her.

Being pampered: Whether that is being bathed and oiled or being given a sweet treat, Willa loves them all.  She will take as much love and affection and treats as anyone wishes to give her.

Dislikes:
Rain: Willa hates the rain.  Especially if she has just been bathed.

Loud Noises: These will make her angry and she will not be afraid to tell off the guilty party. Noisily, which is a little bit of a contradiction.

Tears: If she sees anyone crying she will try to comfort them, though her levels of success are dubious if the person in question doesn't like space-invading firelizards.  She hates to see anyone upset.
