Dragon CandidateAge-Out Date:
Zel is a cocky, self-sure individual that, somehow manages to not be irritating. Mostly in the fact that he seems genuine. He's friendly, eager and happy to lend a hand, even if he frequently uses that as an excuse to flirt with everyone and everything. He doesn't seem to have any emotion but happy or serious and rarely, if ever, has a down day. He looks on the bright side of everything, even if the upside is dinner. Zeliant is a huge flirt and will hit on anything that sits still long enough, including but not limited to his fellow candidates and any dragon that might be around. Dragons get complimented constantly, and he is fairly in awe of them, despite growing up around them.
He's a very giving person and will give you the shirt off his back if you need it more than him. He's the sort that will sit down and help a weyrbrat with a skinned knee, even if it means interrupting his game or chores. He's extremely compassionate and loving, and has a giant, squishy heart.Appearance:
Zel is a tall, burly individual that takes great pride in his appearance. He makes an effort to be in shape, values his hair and is generally a pretty boy. Dirty blonde hair is a bit longer than his customary and he tries to keep himself cleanshaven but it grows so fast it doesn't make a difference. Pale blue-grey eyes seem to always be laughing. He's fairly muscular and has a wide, easy smile that lights up his entire face. Family:

Charger - Burgundy Flit
|Get ready to parrrrr-taaaay! This flit is a little ball of energy and fun, fun, fun! Always on the go, the only time he ever sits still, mostly, usually, potentially, is when he's eating (not always) or sleeping. Or when he has to. Because only best bros ever never worry about getting each other in trouble, right? This flit has a personal-space issue that's reasonably mild to start with - His will have to teach him that people and other flits are not for pouncing, cannonballing, or generally crashing into. What, he's got a lot of Love to give people, okay? He can't help it. |
His bonded is his person, and he'll protect Zel to the end of the world and then some. Where His goes, so does he, because that's just what best buds do. Unless of course Zel tells him he can't go, which means he'll get a bit pissy, but he'll listen because he has to. But he's not gonna be happy about it, you better believe it!
Sweetheart - Tan Flit
|Tans are new, certainly, to the Firelizard population - but not to dragons. Many people might think these little Sub-Queens as dazed and confused as their bigger sisters, but it couldn't be further from the truth, and this little ring-marked Queenie is an example of that. Super-sweet like both her other sisters, she's a lot more intelligent than most people in the Weyr are probably ready to give her credit for; she just likes being looked after, and that's not a crime! Zeliant will have to be careful, elsewise this one's likely to end up spoiled absolutely rotten; she likes attention from Hers, but she's more than a little nervous about being handled by anybody who's not him. While she won't bite or claw unless they don't get the hint, they're likely to see teeth from this otherwise very-sweet little Tan. This is something she might very-well-grow-out-of as the turns progress, but it's something Zeliant will have to work with her on. Her brother might be of some assistance, as well, who knows? Either way, she's highly affectionate otherwise, and will be quite the loyal little pal for Hers throughout the remainder of all her days!|
Mimic - Blue Flit
|While not always the most coordinated of creatures, it is clear that the ??? has more than enough spirit to make up for his misgivings. He rarely gives up, though without Z'ant's encouragement he is likely to become disheartened. Fascinated by all things Lyraleth, it is likely that ??? will come to mimic her actions in an effort to be just as cool. While he has little luck in the romancing department, he will make pitiful attempts in an effort to impress both Lyraleth and His. About as loyal as they come, Z'ant won't need to worry about the blue's level of obedience. ??? is eager to please, and therefore even more eager to learn. It will take very little time to train ??? in a way that Z'ant sees fit, according to his lifestyle. It is likely that ??? will require a routine, for he is easily distracted and needs a bit of order in his life. There's nothing he loves more than pets and attention, more than content to curl up with His on a cold winter day. He has a lot of love to give, with a heart a mile-wide. He might as well be a canine... but he isn't!|
Brat - Purple Flit
Mannerly, Ungrateful, Tireless
This Purple is a strange sort of gentleman. He's kind and gentle, biddable, and always willing to lend a hand or wing when need be. When he gets back, however, he always seems to throw a fit. He gets a treat? Not good enough. Bath and oiling? Took you long enough. Oh, he'll help, he'll enjoy company, but he ends up being a bit of a brat. It doesn't help that this variegated Purple seems to have endless energy. He's constantly on the go and doesn't seem capable of sitting still.
Bandage - Green Flit
Compassionate, helpful, tactile.
Bandage is so named by her constant desire to help fix everything. Hurt? She's going to stick leaves to you and trill like she did a good job. Hungry? Guess who's getting something edible dropped in their lap! She's a toucher, using her front paws to grab onto and feel everything, especially the faces of strangers. She's intelligent enough to know that eye contact means you're listening, so she isn't above hovering in someone's face to make them listen.
Love - Pink flit
Anxious, loving, affectionate
Love is aptly named. She's a lover. And usually attached to Sweetheart at the hip. She either doesn't like flying or simply likes being carried. Either way, she's almost always draped about Z'ant in some way. She's prone to being a bit fat because of this. She's a skittish thing and quick to hide if someone gives her attention, unless they are patient or Z'ant encourages her.
Pester - Cyan flit
Talkative, involved, clueless
Pester is... Well, a pester. She is constantly oblivious to everything around her and tries to get involved in everything, but mostly just gets in the way. She is a slim, sleek creature and very fast, probably because she has to be here to see that and there to see this! And she has to do it now!
Duty - Black flit
Determined, Opinionated, fearless
Duty is so named because he is dutiful. He will do whatever is asked of him without the least bit hesitation. He lives to serve and loves it. He will go above and beyond to receive praise, which frequently results in him doing anything he might think needs done beforehand.
Fearful - Blue Flit
|Inspiration: Kuni of Okamiden|
Quote: "Hey! You can't just leave me behind like that!"
A blue that is nearly purple in it’s tone, this blue is rather evenly built. He seems a bit scrawny at first, but he will gather much more muscle as he grows. His color is mostly just solid. A scar lies under his left eye making a sort of cross mark. This was given by his siblings in their scuffle during the hatching.
This blue is an observant, albeit cowardly individual. He is the last to dive into action and is much more likely to hide and hope it goes away. However, he hates being alone and will stick to his bonded like a burr. Or at least one of his fair. Despite his cowardly nature, he’s surprisingly obedient though he might hesitate if the order frightens him.
Quick - Green flit
|Inspiration: Issun of Okami |
Quote: "Ah, the wonders of nature! A deep valley between two lofty peaks!"
This green is little, as small as a green could be. Though she is small she is a very beautiful color, so many greens that she looks to be glowing. It’s like looking upon a shining stone as just the color lays against her hide. Her headknobs bend forwards in a rather cute and endearing way. She is small but she is fast.
This flit has things to say! And people to hit on! And observations to make aloud! She has no off and will alternate between flirting and trying to fight anything that catches her eye. Insult her or her’s and you’ll have a tiny ball of rage nipping at your nose! But give her a wink and she’s putty in your hands.
Zeliant was born in Dalibor to a rider and a weyrfolk. Neither of his parents were terribly close to the boy, both having other things to tend to while he was raised in the creche. And he was okay with that! Zel grew up happy and healthy and had more than enough parental figures in the form of the creche workers. He was a charming child, recruiting a small army of friends and happily leading the children into a variety of shenanigans, most of which were harmless until he grew older and bolder and the adventures turned into things like sneaking snacks and hosting elaborate blanket fort parties.
His father died when he was young from the plague. Zel has no memory of him, but dreams of being a rider because of him.
His mother died when the lower caverns flooded due to snowmelt. Zeliant remembers her, but holds no strong feelings regarding the woman. He does not miss her, though he mourned her. He puts more stock in his weyrbrat 'siblings' than anything. They are his family.
Because of his focus on his dream of being a rider he's never had a relationship that wasn't just friendly, though others have tried. He's extremely focused when he wants to be and, somehow, very ignorant of the fact that someone would pursue him.
As soon as he was old enough, he started standing for hatchings. Thus far he hasn't had any luck, but that doesn't seem to put a damper on his mood. He's very optimistic and extremely hopeful. That doesn't mean he isn't disappointed every time he doesn't Impress. But he is happy to see his fellows get their dragons and tries to keep his mood up, often claiming its so others don't get down in the dumps.Adoption Preference:
Lyraleth is a whirlwind. In everything that she does. She never stops moving, and never wants to. There is always some new target to hunt, whether it's a literal hunt down at the beastpens, or chasing that juicy promotion in the Wings. She will always be pushing Z'ant to work hard, and play harder. That's because at the end of the day, as long as you work smart, you can save plenty of time for fun, and Lyraleth loves fun. Social to a fault, there isn't a person on Pern this Green won't approach; and by approach, that means full on seduction.
She is an outrageous flirt. It's all in good fun, however, and in time maybe people will come to understand that. It isn't that she necessarily wants you to Chase her until the tithe trains come home, she just thinks you'd look absolutely magnificent doing so. You could probably find her flirting with a pile of rocks if you waited long enough. Is she practicing? Or is she really expecting to elicit a response from stone? Sometimes, it'll be hard to tell unless you really know her. She's smart, and sly, she'll figure out all the things you might like and use them as flirtatious fodder, but she'll also use them to be a great friend and fine companion.
Any information she gets, no matter how small, is just one more clue on the hunt. She isn't above flattery, and if that doesn't work? She certainly isn't above bribery. Her moral compass may just be a little bit broken, in fact it's spinning so fast there isn't any way to tell which way is up or down, but that's why she has Z'ant. Surely he can keep them on the somewhat straight and narrow. Driven, and ambitious, the only thing that will derail Lyraleth will be herself, or possibly her Rider if she chooses a path that he's unhappy with, but he'll have to yank those reins to turn this dragon around.
Loyal, and helpful, Lyraleth will have absolutely no qualms with jumping into a fray if it means saving lives or helping even one person. A new invasion at one of the Holds? She's already there. A new Expedition into the great unknown? She was the first to sign up. That's how she is, feet first, whole heart in it, and that isn't always the safest bet. Life for Z'ant is about to get a whole lot more interesting, and a heap more dangerous until Lyraleth learns how the world works, and learns how to play on the team rather than by and for herself.
An avid hunter of all things, Lyraleth will make an excellent fighter, and she might even be a little too eager to hunt in the Pens. Somewhat selfish, and just a small smidgen possessive, Lyraleth can be aggressive during Flights, and even during cuddle time. While she lacks the pure rage that some of her siblings can show, she can become aggressive and somewhat petulant when she feels as if she's being ignored, or that her flirtations aren't appreciated. At these times she will need Z'ant more than ever to comfort her and show her how to be certain of herself.
Like a forest on a spring day, Lyraleth is a mixture of all shades of green from top to bottom. The points on her; paws, around her eyes, wing and tailtips, seem to be a darker shade of forest that blends and meets somewhere in the middle to a startling yellow-green hue. Aside from these shifting shades her skin is otherwise unmarred by markings or scars--at least so far. She is lithe and supple like her clutchmates, and as equally seductive as her larger sister, but her smaller sizes makes her far more agile and capable of using her angles to flirt with anything, and everyone.
Her head is delicate and small-muzzled, it sweeps down from curving headknobs and is crested by neat small neckridges that run from between her large eyes to the beginning of her nimble whip-like tail. The tines of her forked tail are long, and she moves them so independently that they can hold separate objects or tickle, poke, and prod the object of her current infatuation. Her wings are wide, and broad, making her an excellent flier--something she will do often and happily.
Her paws and talons are small, nimble, and feminine, and she comports herself with a mixture of grace and frivolity, as if she can never decide if she'd rather be a lady, or a hunter. She is as at home on the ground as she is in the sky--atypical for her kind. One of the smallest of her size, she can climb any tree that is strong enough to hold her, and loves trying to climb rocks, or even the Weyrwall when given the chance. Regardless of anything else, she seems comfortable in her own skin.
Adult Length: 24'
With this match, Zeliant and Lyraleth have a common interest: flirting with everything that moves, but whereas Zeliant is very pure of heart, Lyraleth can sour easily and become childlike and uncertain. My hope is that she can be nurtured into the larger picture, while helping to show Zeliant that sometimes it's okay to focus inside as she drives him to accomplish bigger and better things.
