Post by PhoenyxStar on Sept 10, 2018 22:21:45 GMT -8
Alanna Clearwater aka Lana to very few
Age: 26 turns (winter baby)
Weyr: Telgar Weyr
Rank: Gold Rider
Bree - Mother (passed away from heart problems when she was 10)
Alannon - Father (alive) (NPC?)
Bradon aka Bray to her - Younger brother (alive) (NPC?)
Pets: Sunset-Pink Firelizard Lady Amelia
may wait to give to her
Appearance: This tall drink of water can be found standing at 5'9" with just enough curves as to not be so plain and forgettable. Her skin is a milky pale white with very little flaws and marks save for on her right hip and lower back. Lana's lower back sports freckling from hip to hip disappearing up her mid back almost as if someone had sprayed her with paint. Her hip has a dark mark that has no actual shape to it that could be defined. Her eyes are a pale icy blue ringed in a steely grey color. Set between them is a prominent nose and a very stubborn chin graced with a cupid's bow for lips. Her lips remind many of the pink shells found near the gentle shore lines. While she may be tall she weighs roughly around 125 lbs not from malnutrition but simple because her structure is thin with wiry muscles. She walks swifter then many with her long legs which is were most of her height is.
Her preference in clothes fall mainly with airy blouses, corsets, and skirts. The colors you can find on this modest girl often fall under either white, maroon or lilac to deep purples. She tries to find ways to keep cool in the summer other then just swimming and thus has delved back into sewing that she had learned as a child. One day once she has mastered it enough she may make dresses that are shorter that will suit her style and the environment around her.
Loyal - She is loyal only to her dragon (for future reference for plot)
Naive - This girl misses alot of obvious things specially when it comes to guys. Though just because she is naive doesn't mean she is completely helpless. Some times she often misplaces her trust in the wrong kind of people and will get hurt over and over before she gets help from the outside help of another person. (plot)
Shy and Quiet - She is not a very talkative type of woman but when she does talk there are some that will listen to her knowing she doesn't spew words to get herself noticed. She was greatful to hide behind Wraith for a time being before her dragon decidedly thought it was a great idea to throw her to the wolves to stand up for herself.
Kind - She the grown up version of her dragon when it comes to being a mother figure and can be seen on the front when working on injured people. She is friendly and seen giving treats to the young and helping the older folk out with minor tasks without being asked.
Vain - While she doesn't care to shine she does like to have her hair done up and her body clean and neat. Her vainness comes from fear of getting sick while being dirty and thus cleaning herself as often as is viable. Between her and her dragon they both try to keep their weyr room as clean as possible.
Mild Self-Discipline - She gets easily exciteable over runners, firelizards, newborns, and pretty and valuable rocks which can lead to her getting off topic and having to be reminded of what she was just talking about.
Stubborn - Oh boy she can be awfully stubborn when she is working and trying to help wounded. She doesn't like seeing the healer's lose patients and thus spends hours and hours on making bandages and crafting needles from wood to help them out even when she is lacking sleep.
Disrespectful - Not because she wants to be but she has so many questions and often interrupts people to get the question out before she forgets what she was thinking. This may also fall under her mild self-discipline and may be worked on in the future with time and practice.
- Born in a Telgar loyal hold
- Age two when her younger brother was born in mid spring before her father had to be out to sow the crops.
- Age four she is starting to be shown how to card fur into thread by her mother and soon after showing talent she is found threading the fur onto spools for her mother.
- Age 10 mother passes away from a heart attack no one could help or have known
- Age 13 she is picked for a standing and prepped to try for the egg containing a gold
- Age 13 Alanna impressed to Wraith by mere luck that the egg had wobbled and crackled enough to help her come out of the tough shell. She had been summoned forth by her life partner to help peel back the shell in order for her dragon to get some decent air and a way out before the leaders pulled her away to make sure they were both okay.
- Age 15 Alanna finds out the hard way what firestone really does when one of the other candidates dragons spouts fire towards her and catches her hair on fire.
- Age 17 She has taken upon herself to figure out the lay of the land thinking it will keep her in good graces with the Weyrwoman of Telgar as for some reason the woman always seems to be in a bad mood as of late
- Age 21 finds extra work in looking over scrolls to see if they need repair in the mean time getting lost in learning new things from them. Finds maps that haven't been used in a long time and uses them to explore more around the outside of the weyr in hopes of small retreats for her and her dragon.
- Age 23 Still grown and hiding away from others when her dragon rises to mate. She can be found alot of the time hiding in the tunnels to escape the riders of dragons that are trying to fly her bonded.
- Age 26 Just recently turned 26 and finding that with everything going on that she fears may have her weyr destroyed and thus having her look for a way to maybe solve the problem. Her father gifted her with a surprise egg that hatched a lovely Sunset-Pink Firelizard that she named Lady Amelia as the cute little flitter looked very much like a lady and thus seemed to need a name that suited her.
Dragon's Age: 13 turns

Wraith would be considered the smallest a gold could possibly get without being a hindrance to her. This beautiful little girl's base color is so pale that if the light hits it right looks like a butter yellow. It graces the points on her legs, neck, belly, tail, and wings only to subtlety turn to a darker rosy gold on the top parts of her body,head, and wings. While she is small she is also of slim build, her wings are so long that they drag on the ground almost like a fancy lady's dress and up bringing as she walks gracefully around. While they may be long they are built for streamline rather than endurance. People often think she is fragile like an egg shell with how thin and wiry her legs and body look. She will often tire from long flights but will pull through for thread battles for her swifter turns in the queen's wing to help protect the other riders. While she may have a thread mark on her left hip it is only from the fact they she miss gauged how long her first flight in threadfall would be and thus was worn out when it struck her hip. Thankfully it was more just a mark then something severe as she was going to pop in between to the weyr as she was hit by the thread on her hide. Wraith's muzzle is elegant but short with long slim headknobs. While she does sport ridges they gradually taper off before her shoulders leaving a smooth back and tail.
Her leather gear has been made with lighter material for her frame but is still made durable for the cold between with a lining of a fur flap to help keep her rider warm and safe ontop of the straps. Her gear was hand stitched by her rider with light purples and vibrant blues on the designs.
Brave - While her rider may be timid right now she is more then willing to step up and for her rider and put a foot down. There are cases where she wont always take charge in hopes that her rider will gain the courage to step up herself.Wraith is more then capable in decifering what times are better then others.
Loyal - She may be distrustful of those that would harm children but if you prove yourself to her motherly figure in her you have gained a loyal friend.
Proud - She prides herself in her appearance and can be found preening herself in the sun and ordering firelizards to help her bath to get the grit off her hide.
Perseverance - She works through the hard times and tries her best to be someone that people can lean on through tough times. Often getting depressed when she is unable to help others.
Kind and Loving - While this gold has many downfalls often pilled on top of each other her redeeming quality seems to make her shine with both love and kindess. She showers the young ones when she isn't bugging her bonded often giving them tongue baths or watching the toddlers play. She is thought of the mother figure that never grew up.
Impatience and Fidgety - Wraith has trouble standing still for long periods of time if it doesn't involve sunning or sleeping. It's caused much trouble during her classes and meetings leading to her and her rider having to step away to get her jitters out and calmed down again. She can also be found becoming fidgety a couple days before rising for her flights making others around her irritated with her.
Selfish - While Wraith is normally preoccupied by sunning the rest of time she can be seen hoarding her bonded's time often leading to them bickering over the fact Alanna needing to get work done without being hovered over and smooshed.
Silly - She will have bouts of silly antics to help her let off steam and frustration. These are mainly aimed at her bonded and close friends and/or mate at the time. Often she can be seen acting like a canine wagging her tail and rolling onto her back for much loved belly rubs.
Easy to Anger- like her name Wraith is one dragon you don't want to anger. While in some cases she is hard to anger others times, like bullying kids, makes her snap and very rarely will she not give you a second chance to make up for the mess. The way you can tell if she is mad is to check under her eyes if you have a chance because they will twitch.
Likes - This dragon likes baths and swimming with her rider. She loves belly rubs, eye ridge skritches, and wing rubs from people and definitely doesn't have any shame in asking them to do so despite Alanna's protests to it. She can sit for hours listening to flutes being played specially when the firelizards join in to sing unless it becomes horribly off key. Wrath is most intrigued by her rider's weaving and stitching work and can be found curled around her in a pillow to keep her relaxed.
Dislikes - Early mornings and having to get up for them. If she can get away from it she will take as much time as she can to get up. Wraith is an odd dragon as she doesn't like winter and has seen snow only once. Bright lighting tends to disorientate her specially when she goes from bright lights to the dark. Tunnel snakes be warned she actively hunts them in her free time on the beaches.
Dragon's History: She was almost a tragedy in her clutch. There were two gold eggs and she was the smallest of the two. If it hadn't been for her gold sister's egg rocking into her's and helping crack it she might not have tried to reach out to her rider for help in peeling away the hard egg shell that wouldn't break with her egg tooth. The dragon scrambled with all her might as her bonded's fingers worked their way through the cracks pushing her way out and onto her bonded body causing cut marks from her claws. She apologized to Alanna over and over till her bonded gave up and ordered her to sleep so they could both get rest. From then on it was day after day of pestering her bonded for attention and love in and out of classes and meetings. On her bonds' 26th birthday she got to celebrate the birth of a little firelizard that could light up any room with her vibrant colors with much of a chirpy personality to go with her colors. The gold dotted on the little one and watched over the firelizard when her rider was away for business.
