Description


There isn't much to Priya, standing at barely five foot three and not having much in the way of meat on her bones. What is there is becoming more toned through the exercises of dragonriding, but it's still a stretch to call her anything but skinny. Her skin is unusual, tanned but also dappled head to toe in light freckles to match her coppery-red hair; hair that has found new life in being cut short, hanging a little bit past her chin and putting bounce in something that had once been stringy and unfortunate. Thin brows arch over small and wide set umber-brown eyes, adding frame to a strong nose and full lips. While her hands are calloused, her fingernails are well-maintained. Priya's general visage is one of someone who is trying not to be noticed, never standing tall or calling attention to herself.

Priya's weyrling uniform has a problem: it's tailored for a person who would fill it properly, rather than being altered to match her. Therefore, the shirt is just slightly too large in every possible way, and if she doesn't roll up her sleeves they fall almost to her fingertips. Pants that might have been form-fitting on another are looser on her, and at least she's hemmed them so she isn't tripping all the time. Her boots are high-heeled, to make up for her length of stature, but it doesn't help her look any less like a small child in a giant coat.

Common Knowledge

  • Searched for Nemekhath & Raxsonath's clutch about two days before it hatched; Impressed all of a sudden and unexpectedly.
  • People from SBH will know her as the restauranteur's only daughter; a lot of the miners (and even some of the convicts) ate at her family's cozy warm space. She tried her hand at waitressing, and wasn't too bad for a young teenager.
  • Has a small coop of chickens in her weyr.

Relationships

A'idan: Was Assistant Weyrlingmaster. Wary of, but respecting.
A'hali: Weyrling wingsecond. Tall one to hide behind.
D'ean: Pseudo-family. Weyrling wingleader. Protective, but not overprotective.
Francis: Pseudo-family. Clutchmate. Trustworthy.
Ione: Not-scary goldrider. Also moved to Igen. :(
Iska: Clutchmate. Intimidating in a way Priya kind of looks up to. Priya sometimes chooses bad role models.
J'rlen: Clutchmate. Talented, quiet.
Keelie: Was Assistant Weyrlingmaster. A good role model. Left for Igen; came back.

Augh, I have to leave, to finish later~

History

Priyali wasn't exactly the favorite, since her mother never had that; she was, however, the only girl, and so she was doted upon. Their little family — mother, three sons and the second-born daughter — lived on the outskirts of Keroon Hold, with their mother working as a chef at an outpost. Priyali's father was an Ista rider she never got to know very well, and disconnected from even more thoroughly when the family abruptly relocated upon the founding of Southern Barrier Hold.

This was where Priyali's mother saw opportunity; she saw a future where, as a journeyman baker, she could do things on her own at her own little restaurant, even if it was freezing. And wouldn't people appreciate it all the more because it was always freezing? Her children, on the other hand, saw it as ever-so-slight torture: after all, it was freezing.

But they got used to it.

They got used to the mayhem and danger that was a part of everyday life in the Ice Fields, having grown up with it.

It became a life that actually suited Priyali and her brothers; things stopped feeling idyllic, but they also started feeling more real. Priyali became more curious, more bold. She was, however, the good child; she did her best to stay out of trouble. Any discomfort from the initial uprooting and the fact that she was convinced her new home was trying to kill her eventually wore off, and she kept her head down.

… until she got Searched, which her mother objected to, but her brothers encouraged; she accepted, for the eggs to hatch a mere two days later, her having never settled in to the second relocation in an as of yet short life, having never truly even begun to understand what Weyrs and dragonriding were really all about.

That was why no one expected her to Impress, with the hatching coming so soon. They turned out to be wrong, and she was thrown into a totally new life with little training in a group of essential strangers.

Jet Spray & High Cliffs Brown Meshkenath


meshkenath_default.jpg


Wrought of the deep, dark stone of the earth, hues of richest shadowed umber tesselate, scale-like and shining water-bright, all along the serpentine length of this powerful and salient brown. Wingspars limned in gleaming buff outline the impressive breadth of long, narrow wings, tips tapering in echo of sharp headknobs and peaked, back-swept neckridges. Rainbow iridescence seems to gild every curve and dip of too-lean muscle, flowing back as a stream over myriad dark-eyed pebbles to the dark gleam of a coppery whip-thin tail and pooling upon the perilously protracted curve of tarnished golden talons.
