Guest Info Plot & Events


Current Month
8.2590 A.R.
9th Interval



Southern Winds has plotted events roughly every 4 or 5 OOC days. 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 Flits here, as well as whers.  There are Candidate events and classes and Crafter plots. A little bit of something for everyone.

See previous events here!

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

Finnmaghaine [ 28.06.2553 / Blue Rider ]
« on: February 02, 2014, 12:32:03 AM »

Play By:
MISSY HIGGINS
Biography

First Name:
Finnmaghaine [ FIN-mah-gain ]
Nicknames:
Finna
Date of Birth:
28.06.2553 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Southern Boll Hold
Dragon Color:
Blue
Impression Age:
2569/16
Wing Rank:
Beach Wingrider/Searchrider
Weyrmate:
Currently none. Prior to the fall of Pern's Weyrs, her weyrmate was B'tron of green Aeyth. Finna is heavily bisexual, and prefers female partners.

Your Reflection...

Appearance: Owing to her androgynous appearance, Finna is often mistaken for a man at first glance -- and that suits her just fine. She is narrow bodied and lacking the curves of most women; but what she lacks for in these aspects, she makes up for in strength and confidence. No stranger to hard work even before she was a dragon rider, Finna bears the callouses and various scars she earned while learning a fisherman's trade in Tillek Hold. The most prominent of these is the check-mark shaped scar on her left cheek, evidence of a past accident. She wears her dark hair short, cut above her ears for convenience and cleanliness' sake. Though not vain, she does enjoy being clean and tidy. Finna dresses rather plainly, and almost never in skirts or dresses. She favors shell and scrimshaw jewelry in styles that were once common to Ista -- her family's original home.

Response to 9th Pass Catastrophe: Finna, M'rek, and O'sir are from some of the last families who survived the fall of Ista Island. Having moved from there to Southern Boll Hold, Tillek Hold, and finally Fort Weyr during her lifetime, Finna has seen quite a bit of death and destruction. Though she mourns the loss of her friends, family members, and weyrmate, her indomitable spirit means that she labors on as best she can, intent on ensuring that Southern Winds Weyr remains successful and viable.

Response to dragon color mutations: While Finna holds a grudging respect for S'bok as her Weyrleader, she is not overly fond of him on account of his arrogance. Nevertheless, she sees her loyalty and duty to Southern Winds Weyr above all, even the current Weyrleader. As for the dragon color mutations, she sees them as a natural response from the dragons to the catastrophe of the 9th Pass. Only by changing, as the human survivors did, can they hope to survive in a world that has ceased to follow the rules they always knew.

Who are you...

Likes: Water : Whether it involves being outside during rainstorms, skimming the ocean for fish, or bathing in a river, Finna loves being around water. Both she and her Kimisuth share a fondness for it, and in their down time the two can often be found somewhere near the Weyrbowl's beach.

Searching : Prior to the fall of the last Weyrs and Holds, Finna served as a Search Rider for Fort Weyr. It's a responsibility she prized highly, and would be interested in taking on again once the need for it arises at Southern Winds.

Fishing : Having been raised with fishing as her intended occupation, Finna still enjoys it as a relic and reminder of her family and friends. She would be one of the first dragon riders to volunteer to do so, as she finds it relaxing.

Dislikes: Laziness : There is very little that will make Finna angrier than people who do not pull their own weight. If they complain, she is likely to directly call them out on their behavior.

Passive-aggressiveness : She values directness and honesty, and has little patience for those who are not.

Cold : Being cold can tend to make her cranky; originally a native of Southern Boll, she is thoroughly enjoying Southern Winds' tropical location.

Strengths:

* HARD-WORKING : Never one to shy away from work, Finna will put in her time and then some in order to accomplish whatever task needs to get done around the weyr. Even if it is unpleasant, she sees no reason to complain. After all, Southern Winds' small population cannot afford to pander to the lazy.

* EMPATHETIC : Her particularly powerful empathy made her a good Search Rider, as she and Kimisuth were quite skilled at finding those who would make the best dragon riders. It takes quite a bit of consistently bad behavior to earn her dislike, as she rarely holds grudges and is quick to forgive. Holding onto conflict will only tear apart the tenuous settlement the survivors have created on Fort Island.

* BRAVE : Finna understands that bravery is less about not feeling fear, and more about conquering that fear. No matter how nervous she might be to take on a dangerous task, she understands that her rank as dragon rider makes it necessary. After all, the survivors of Pern are looking to the Weyr for guidance, and all of the riders -- no matter their color -- should be role models to those remaining.

* LOYAL : Once someone has earned Finna's respect and trust, it takes a great deal to break that bond. Toward that end, she tries to cultivate at least amicable relations with everyone in the weyr. After all, internal conflict aided the fall of at least one Hold within her lifetime. Furthermore, Finna strives to be a true friend to those who are close to her.

* TOLERANT : "Live and let live" rules how Finna conducts her life. She does not concern herself with the personal lives of others unless invited into them as a friend. No matter her frustrations with a given individual -- or even the rare case of dislike -- she will only ever speak these feelings privately, preferring not to air them to the drama of the weyr.

Weaknesses:

* IMPATIENT : E Save for fishing and Searching, Finna lacks the patience for many things. Like her dragon, she has a vibrancy of life that demands constant action and stimulus. When these things are not in abundance, she is easily bored and restless.

* BLUNT : At times, Finna's honesty can get her into trouble when she proves too blunt for the sensitive opinions of others. Sometimes her criticisms (meant to be constructive) can come across too harshly. She believes that problems are only ever compounded by white lies, and it's better to come clean with the truth from the beginning, no matter how hard it may be.

* LOUD : Finna's zest for life can sometimes burn too bright for others, particularly those who have recently been touched by tragedy or who are prone to brooding. Her better moods are frequently accompanied by boisterousness from her and her friends, to the point that they sometimes get a little too vocal or rowdy for the tastes of more conservative riders.

* PROUD : Finna has more pride than is probably appropriate for a blue rider, meaning that she sometimes rankles under orders that she feels go against the better interests of the weyr. Most of the time she can let things roll off her back, but there are some insults or transgressions that simply won't slide.

* PRIVATE : For all her apparent candidness and warmth of personality, Finna has not truly opened up to anyone since the death of her weyrmate, B'tron. She is reluctant to allow someone so close again for fear of being hurt and losing yet more of the people she cares about. For this reason, while she is a good acquaintance and friend to all who treat her similarly, she does not necessarily open up to others very easily.

Describe Yourself:

* STEADFAST: It takes a lot to shake this blue rider after all of the things she has seen and weathered.

* ENERGETIC: Finna and Kimisuth are rarely seen still -- except when sleeping or sunning themselves on the Weyrbowl's beach.

* LONELY: Despite her easy friendship with most in the weyr, Finna conceals a deep loneliness. She still misses her deceased weyrmate, B'tron, and this grief has prevented her from taking another lover since his death.

* APPRECIATIVE: Every day, Finna is thankful that she and Kimisuth managed to survive the 9th Pass. She does her best to take pleasure in the small things.

* FAIR: Above all, she tries to be even and fair to everyone, avoiding harsh judgments unless she feels they are entirely warranted.

The Magic Touch: Finna tends to chew on the inside of her left cheek when she's deep in thought, a habit that deepens the scar on her cheek while she does it.

Family...

Mother: Meghaine. 03.03.2535. Journeyman Fisher. Deceased.
Father: Finnadar. 16.05.2531. Apprentice Weaver. Deceased.

Siblings:
Maghar. Brother. 12.10.2559. Deceased.

Children:
Due to her preference for women, Finna has never had any children. While she no doubt conceived during the time she was weyrmates with B’tron, the nature of the Pass and frequent Betweening means that she never had the pregnancy long enough to know it was there – and she and B’tron never elected to have children when Pern needed all available dragon riders flying Threadfall.

Tell us a story...

* 2553, 0 Finna's parents, originally natives of Ista Hold, are refugees at Southern Boll when she is born. She considers herself a native of this Hold, but also still feels a lingering kinship for Ista from stories she hears from her parents.

* 2558, 5 Fall of Southern Boll Hold. Finna's family is again displaced, this time being sent as refugees to Tillek Hold. Finna remembers this event with lingering fear and confusion. It took her quite a while, after the fall of the Hold, to accept that she could never return to Southern Boll. She still feels homesick for the place to this day.

* 2559, 6 Meghaine gives birth to her younger child, Finna's brother Maghar. He's taken under her wing straight away, and Finna holds a soft spot for her brother a mile wide. She took on the role of protector for Maghar for quite a while, and the pair of them had a very brotherly relationship as siblings.

* 2565, 12 Finna joins her father in his trade, learning Fishercraft. Though she's been unofficially helping him for quite a few years now, she truly becomes an apprentice on her twelfth birthday. Though she looks to the skies rather jealously to catch glimpses of dragon riders, she makes a good Fisher and takes pride in her craft. Around this age is when she first really starts to realize that her tastes run toward women -- but she's not very open about it no account of how the Holders tend to view homosexual relationships.

* 2569, 16 Finna is Searched by riders from Fort Weyr, along with a number of younger Candidates from the Hold. She stands on the Hatching Sands and Impresses blue Kimisuth.  Her parents were hesitant about letting her accept the Candidacy, but they want to restrain their daughter's spirited determination even less. As such, they are proud of her and support her decision. Finna blossoms in the environment of the weyr, coming into her own and at last surrounded by people who couldn't care less about her sexual preferences.

* 2571, 18 Finna graduates from being a weyrling to a full Wing Rider. The same turn, Tillek Hold falls to Thread and the remaining survivors on Pern retreat to Fort Weyr and Fort Hold. Finna's younger brother, Maghar, is lost during the evacuations. This blow strikes to Finna's core, and she spends many months grieving for her brother. While she's glad to have her parents closer, it's a long time before she can come to terms with Maghar's death.

* 2572, 19 Finna Impresses a pair of blue and green firelizards, whom she names Lagoon and Bayou. A gift from B'tron, they're a spot of brightness against the backdrop of her grief. It's caring for the eggs -- and later, young flits -- which ultimately helps her finish grieving for Maghar.

* 2574, 21 Finna begins a relationship with B'tron, rider of Green Aeyth, a Clutchmate of Kimisuth's. The two have been lovers off and on again as the result of Aeyth's Flights, and have been best friends since the day that they met during Candidate training. While Finna far prefers the company of women, it seems natural to her to claim B'tron as her "weyrmate". Though they don't often have sex outside of Flights, they live together in the same weyr and love each other just as passionately as any more traditionally bonded pair.

* 2576, 23 When a bout of winter fever sweeps through Fort Hold, Finna's parents both catch and succumb to the illness. This sends her spinning into grief once again, in which her dragon, flits, and B'tron are her only solace. With the rest of her family now dead, Finna is even more determined to do her duty as a dragon rider in order to ensure that the rest of Pern can survive, and hopefully avoid the tragedies she has been met with.

* 2579, 26 B'tron and Aeyth are lost while fighting Thread. Ultimately, Finna is grateful for the time that he had with her best friend. While they never had any children together, she looks on her time with B'tron with fondness. Nevertheless, she grieves for him for a long time, and tries to take his flits, Jinx and Joy, on as her own. Unfortunately, the little fire lizards gradually go wild and leave the weyr. Though she's dallied with other riders since then, Finna has yet to take another weyrmate or have any children.

* 2587, 34 End of the 9th Pass. The remaining survivors at Fort relocate to Southern Winds. She sees this as a chance at a new start, and is determined to make the best of it -- for those living, as well as in the memory of those that have been lost.

* 2589, 36 Present day. The tensions cropping up in the weyr frustrate Finna, who believes the only path to continued survival is through unity.

---

She could scarcely believe she had done it. She had actually Impressed a dragon. A dragon! Stumbling off the Hatching Sands and into the room where the new Weyrlings were feeding their ungainly young dragons, Finna had to cling to Kimisuth for balance. The rambunctious blue had been brimming with energy from the first moment he had burst forth from his egg, drawing laughter from the crowd of spectators as he proceeded to try to climb up his mother to gain a better vantage point. Now he could scarcely restrain himself for his hunger, tugging Finna along with insistent mental prodding until she couldn't help but smile even wider than she already was.

The long tables were laid with fresh meat, mostly wherry by the look of things. Finding an as-yet-unclaimed portion of the room, Finna began to rip up pieces of the meat into reasonable sizes to feed to her new dragonet. Even then the whole process felt like a dream.

What is wrong, Finna? Kimisuth's concerned voice broke Finna out of her thoughts, and she realized that she had been staring off into space. Her eyes met those of another Weyrling from across the room, a narrowly handsome young man with grey eyes and red hair bound back in a braid. He was busy feeding a pale Green who nuzzled her snout against his leg as he waved to Finna.

"Nothing," she said with a smile, having eyes only for Kimisuth once more. She tore off a particularly large piece and smiled as she watched him gulp it down happily. "How could anything be wrong now that I have you?"

Dragon Details

Name:
Kimisuth
Pronounced:
[ KIM-ee-suhth ]
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
2569 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr
Clutch Mother:
Kiberith
Clutch Father:
Zehenth
Measurements:
Mature Length: 28 M
Mature Height: 5.6 M
Mature Wingspan: 46.48 M

General Appearance...

Kimisuth has always been lithe and rather gangly, though he succeeded in sorting out his limbs faster than most dragonets. His coloration has changed little since his Hatching -- if anything, the colors on his wings have deepened to a darker shade. He is a cobalt blue, rich and vibrant. His broad wings are shaded with a violet-midnight color, darkening to navy near the leading edge. Specks of silver dot his breast.

Personality...

Mind Voice: Kimisuth's internal voice is a rich tenor, often highly amused and just as vibrant as his personality.

Likes: Swimming : Kimisuth's favorite pastime involves diving and soaring out of water. He's perfectly content to paddle around with Finna whenever they have a spare moment to themselves.

Sunbathing : The only thing that Kimisuth enjoys more than swimming is stretching out to bask on the sands or a warm shelf of rock.

Dislikes: Rules : While he's as adherent to duty as Finna is, Kimisuth doesn't care much for rules or responsibilities. If left to his own devices, he would spend his days sunbathing and swimming.

Seriousness : A natural joker, Kimisuth takes it upon himself to lighten the mood wherever he goes.

Strengths:

* HUMOR : Kimisuth lets most things roll off his back, and has no problems making fun of himself for the purpose of a good joke.

* PROTECTIVE : Kimisuth is fiercely protective of anyone he considers in his good favor, and is particularly fond of younger dragonets and their riders.

Weaknesses:

* MOODY : On occasion, Kimi can be broody when he feels like his pride has been injured.

* IDLE : If Kimisuth can find a way to get himself and Finna out of some small responsibility, he will. That being said, he won't shirk truly important duties.

Dragon Speech Code: This is what your dragon's voice will look like. Background: #(051638); Text: #(414afa)

Flit Details

Name:
Lagoon
Pronounced:
luh-GOON
Color:
Blue
Date of Birth:
2572 9th Pass
Place of Birth:
Fort Weyr

General Appearance...

Lagoon is a rich sapphire blue liberally marked with periwinkle along his extremities. 

Personality...

High strung and nervous, Lagoon is in motion almost as much as his owner and Kimisuth. He's easily startled and twitchy, and prefers to hide in the presence of much larger fire lizards.

Mind Voice: Lagoon's mental voice is rather high, and typically harried. He is full of energy, and it reflects in his voice.

Likes: Petting : Lagoon is an extremely affectionate flit, and loves getting rubbed and petted by a variety of people.

Fruit : He also has a taste for tropical fruit, and enjoys eating it almost as much as he does meat.

Dislikes: Stress : Lagoon is a high-energy, extremely anxious flit. He will panic at a moment's notice if startled, winding himself around Finna's neck or arm.

Larger flits : Lagoon is wary around bronze and brown flits.

Flit Details

Name:
Bayou
Pronounced:
BUY-you
Color:
Green
Date of Birth:
2572 9th Pass
Fort Weyr

General Appearance...

Bayou is a brilliant, dark emerald green. She has mottled patterns of olive and lime green on her wings, but beyond that her color remains fairly true.

Personality...

Bayou is vain and haughty, with a personality more suited to a queen. She is fickle and flighty, prone to being violent just as much as she is to being affectionate. She is possessive of both Finna and Lagoon.

Mind Voice: Bayou's voice is low and fairly husky, much slower and relaxed than Lagoon's.

Likes: Being admired : Bayou does not necessarily like most people, but she does take an extreme liking to those who comment on her beauty.

Staying clean : She abhors dirtying herself, and spends much of her time preening or bathing. 

Dislikes: Being ignored : The surest way to earn a hissing and clawing mess of a green firelizard is to ignore her when she wants attention.

Queen firelizards : Lagoon is the ruler of her small fair, and does not take kindly to other firelizards giving orders to Lagoon.
