Fort Weyr > DaliborRank:
Wingrider; Searchrider; Journeyman HealerPersonality:
Wa’ut likes to learn. He would be everywhere all at once and is fairly scatterbrained, though he can also focus on one thing far too long if it catches his interest. He’s very fond of information and learning. Even if he happens to be rather irritating as he tries to go about acquiring it.
He is very in your face and has no concept of personal space. He’ll happily throw himself into any situation convinced that the people he’s with are his best friends. Even if they don’t know it. He is almost overly friendly, and very talkative, especially if you get him going on about anything he’s fond of. Appearance:
Wa’ut is an olive skinned man of average height. He’s muscled, but not overly so. More of fit than anything. His hair is black and usually kept in a tight braid at the nape of his neck. Dark eyes and full lips complete his face. A few scars mar his skin, most notably one across his stomach and hip, threadscore from the doomfall.Family:

Any pets your character has (see the Main Stall in the Market.)History:
Wa’ut was born Walenut to a pair of weyrfolk that were as supportive as they could be. Especially when their eldest son turned out to be so dramatically… Different than expected. He was a quiet boy, raised in and out of the creche, as his mother was one of the aunties, and he quickly proved to be very friendly and not exactly the sort that fit in. But that didn’t dissuade him. He attached himself to a healer that appreciated the child’s interest and chatter. Walenut decided he was going to be a healer.
And also stand for dragons. He was ten, he could have set loftier goals!
Not that he got much choice. He learned everything he could from his healer friend. He was approaching the idea of becoming an apprentice when Qith happened and he became Wa’ut. Which he was okay with. Qith only encouraged his lofty goals but both had to wait until they graduated. And they did.
Once they’d graduated, however, he dove into being a healer’s apprentice at the Weyr. He soaked up knowledge like a sponge and was so excited to practice what he learned.
The Wherry Plague was... Well, Wa'ut would say it was fascinating but that's a terrible way to describe a plague. It promptly became less fascinating when he watched the Weyr around him get ill. Somehow, he didn't get sick, but he was kept busy treating others and frequently found himself sleeping in a corner of the infirmary so he would be there in case of an emergency. It took Qith reminding the boy to do basic things like eat and sleep and his teachers running him off to get him to actually do things beyond help.
He walked the tables at 20 and started on working towards his master’s knots.
He found himself approached by a greenrider named Amaya and to say she puzzled Wa’ut was putting it lightly. She pursued him relentlessly and eventually became pregnant with his child, later giving birth to a daughter named Amaut. The relationship didn’t last, Amaya wanting more attention than Wa’ut was willing to give.
Life continued as Wa’ut balanced fighting thread, caring for Qith and his craft as best he could. He’s determined to become a master! Which proved handy when Thread fell more erratically than normal. When Qith rested, Wa’ut worked in the infirmary. Together, they did everything they could to help. Then promptly fell asleep on the infirmary floor in a heap, tending their own wounds. Wa'ut woke to Qith keening, mourning the loss of their Weyrwoman. It was a harsh reminder that they
were the forefront in the fight against Thread. It had a sobering effect and while Wa'ut is still terrible at announcing whatever sickness or injury he sees is interesting, he at least tries to do so away from the afflicted now.
When word reached them that Grove needed assistance in exploring, they promptly signed up, eager to see new things and explore the unexplored. The result was Wa’ut getting sick and winding up in Dalibor. Once recovered, he opted to stay. They needed healers and riders and he was, conveniently, both. He let his family know and sent word that he’d come get them if they cared to transfer.Dragon Name:

Qith is intelligent. Not that you really get to know it. He’s also energetic, loud, talkative and involved. No one has any privacy where he’s involved and he has no problem sticking his nose in everyone else’s business.
Despite his energy, he is remarkably calm until something gets him going. He’s understanding of others - Once he remembers that they have feelings and he is, maybe, stepping on some toes. Then he is very apologetic.
He is very enthusiastic with what he considers his craft: Searching. To the point of having to be told he can’t just pick children up and take them back to the Weyr.Dragon Appearance:
Qith is a bright blue, with two opposite legs being lighter. The tips of his tail, wingtips and face are all lighter as well. He is fairly average in size, but his tail is almost ridiculously long. Threadscore runs along his back haunch.Dragon History:
Qith knew Wa’ut was meant for him before he’d even broken out of the shell. The second he’d touched his egg, Qith knew. This healer would be his. They’d be great together. He’d make this boy Master. And they’d find other future riders.
When he hatched, he marched right up to him, Impressed and demanded to be fed. And then their life was off!
He encouraged Wa’ut to learn everything he could because he was doing similar. Together, they had goals and plans. And, for Qith, that was to be the Best Searchdragon Ever (™.)
His first flight was, in his opinion, wonderful. It was fun and exciting! And it only continued. He had no qualms about chasing everything that rose, even if it annoyed Wa’ut that it interrupted his studies.
Their adventure South was exciting! Until Wa’ut got sick, then it was the opposite of exciting, it was distressing. But Wa’ut got better and everything was okay. So they got a new home, which was a bonus. There were new
people. It was exciting!Adoption Preference:
