Description

Average of height, there are no soft, feminine curves to form the shape of her body and instead, she is more on the angular and leanly muscular side. Plain featured, her haunted brown eyes are set under thick eyebrows and framed by a small, thin nose that ends in an upturned point. Her full lipped mouth is often turned up in a grimace or smirk and uncommon are the times she's ever seen genuinely smiling. Wavy dark brown hair carries notes of auburn in the right light and has been cut short; so short that it's almost shaved along the sides and back, leaving it longer on top and either brushed back or parted to one side or the other.

Most days and while on duty, she'll wear her riding leathers, preferring natural hues or darker, sombre shades. They've been tailored and cut in a way to actually fit her angular frame, though notably the style is a little more towards the masculine side than feminine and done so on purpose. When she's off duty, her tastes are much the same: light fabrics but nothing overly flashy and in styles and cuts that suit her build and frame but lean towards androgynous. She wears nothing else on her person, no jewelry or anything of note beyond the knot usually pinned to her jacket. It's a Wingsecond's knot in Igen Weyr's colors and threaded through with a dark brown ribbon. Beside it and visible, is a sewn patch with Parhelion's insignia.


Common Knowledge

  • While generally keeping to herself, she doesn’t shy away from social interaction; in fact, she craves it… if she can avoid weirding out other people
  • Knowledgeable in herbal medicines and remedies, though she wears no formal Healer-knot — so one has to wonder just how credible her understanding is and if all she knows, does, in fact, do good…
  • Enjoys collecting odds and ends and bits of this or that; her pockets are often filled with an odd assortment of… things; it’s best not to ask
  • Doesn’t like to talk much about her past; any inquiries will often result in her playing a ‘game’ … making it difficult to tell if her cryptic or sarcastic answers are true or false
  • Most in the Underground would recall her having much longer hair; why she cut it so short is anyone's guess but it happened not long after the discovery of the Hold
  • Earned the nickname 'Puzzle' by Zavyr and loves it more than she lets on…
  • She keeps a notebook/journal. It'd be unadvisable to try to sneak a peek.
  • Divale is not a lover of men and prefers women; something she used to keep quiet but does so no longer and can be a terrible flirt

Not Common Knowledge

(Not even known to any UH folk)

  • She can draw, to a degree, if she has the tools
  • She frequently refers to two people in her journal; one with fondness and one with scorn
  • She was born in some remote holding in Lemos territory
  • Her family is a large, many generation and 'branched'; her 'branch' is concidered corrupted… she is not on good terms with her largely extended (and unknown) family
  • Most of those she lived with in her 'branch', in that holding are dead or gone…
  • … including Divale's closest friends and her first love; a girl known as Ravannae
  • The woman who was with her in the Underground was her grandmother and Divale is the reason the woman is dead
  • … many of these details are known only to a very select few and highly unlikely to be known ICly unless Divale has personally shared them (or someone's betrayed her secrets)

Relationships

  • Eala, Wingmate & Wingsecond — walks a fine line between strictly her superior in rank and a friend, but there is the beginning of some level of respect and trust…
  • Ione, Jr. Weyrwoman — enjoys her company, even if there's only a small level of trust; Lukoith caught Niatskivhiath
  • Ko'an, bronzerider, 'NightWalker' — she's not foolish enough to put full trust in him, but getting there; she still treats him like a dangerous 'snake… Tameable, but able to strike without warning or cause; some recent events have put him on the very cusp of some twisted sense of 'friendship'…
  • Zavyr, Entertainer, 'Fool' — still her closest friend, despite things being tense and strained between them…

History

No one knows where Divale was born and some may suspect she doesn’t know either. Any questioning will often result in a (very frustrating) run-around or a cryptic puzzle game. What is known, however, is that she showed up in the Underground three Turns ago, alongside an older woman. As to their relation, that too is shrouded in mystery and may never be known; the woman died not long after their arrival.

Divale often haunted most of the Underground and kept mostly to herself. She would often be seen aiding in some Healer-type tasks and it was generally known she had some knowledge of herbs and herbal remedies and, perhaps, some shadier understandings. This led to speculation that perhaps she was originally from Healer Craft or had had some form of training before falling from grace; or was it the woman who came with her, and Divale was her “apprentice” of sorts?

Who knows. Divale surely isn’t going to say otherwise and the more rumors surrounding her, the more she appears amused by it all…

After the discovery of the Underground, Divale began to frequent the Weyr whenever she could find transport; often lurking for no more than a day or so at best. She managed to keep a low enough profile, keeping out of the way of most of the riders and even gaining one friendship among the Zingari.

On the thirteenth day of the eleventh month of the eighth Turn of the 12th pass, she was Searched by R'xim, along with Tallarn, to stand for Rhiscorath and Abraxath's clutch. She's adjusted so far, though it has yet to truly sink in.

Candidacy was gruelling and a long period of adjustment for Divale. She made a few friends and got closer with some of her fellow Undergrounders despite all the chores and PT.

The eggs Hatched on the nineteenth day of the second month of the ninth turn of the 12th pass and Divale's life was forever changed when brown Lukoith chose her on those Sands (just as Zavyr had predicted).

Weyrlinghood provided several trials and challenges. Lukoith pushed Divale to her limits, several times, but her resilience won out in the end. Able to adapt and cope, they managed to survive even the unusual accelerated training after a tragic and catastrophic Threadfall left Igen's Wings struggling.

On the nineteenth day of the seventh month of the ninth turn of the 12th pass, Divale graduated with the rest of the weyrlings, receiving her Parhelion Wing badge and Wingrider knot, as well as being officially set to training under weyrwoman Diem and Weyrsecond T'ral for Dragonhealing.

Life as a rider proved challenging, though Divale and Lukoith both took to their new routines well… to start. Proving to be arrogant and reckless, Divale has ended up in trouble on more than one occasion. She's been jumped and injured in the Bazaar and while it's made her a little cautious, it's mostly to stay on the better side of her superiors.

The biggest shock came on the nineteenth day of the tenth month of the ninth turn of the 12th pass when Lukoith chased gold Zsaviranth… and won! The result was 32 eggs clutched, which later Hatched a recorded 5 bronzes, 8 browns, 9 blues, and 10 greens.

… and an even bigger shock and life altering event occurred on the seventh day of the sixth month of the tenth turn of the 12th pass. A bad Threadfall that saw a sandstorm blow in, caught the inexperienced pair off guard. Divale was struck and severely scored in her leg, losing her fifth toe but fate spared her from losing her foot entirely. Lukoith was struck in the neck, but no as deeply.

Facing a long recovery, it remains to be seen how Divale handles what lies ahead.


Firelizards

Though she be small, she be mighty — though it wouldn't seem apparent, given the creamy buttermilk-pallid gold that wraps her in soft, gauzy warmth. Every bit of her is feminine, rounded and soft and appealing, as if someone brought her to life from a paint-by-numbers of the most abstract archetype of maiden-fair loveliness. The only hint to the compassionate nightmare beneath her dreaming delicacy is crepuscular light, or lack thereof, shading those shallow draughts of delicate sails strung like a summer porchlight bangle between the hard cartilage of wingspar and soft rotund side. Dusky and dim, those wings counter the pale precision of the rest of her, hinting to a darkness that only fellow mercy-givers could ever comprehend.
